Finally fixed this one annoying thing on my Jekyll based blog. Yes, I know. I'm using some outdated stuff and I should really upgrade the theme. That's for another day :)

Yes, it would be the Kiss of Death, IMHO. Which is why I said it is possible but not very probable. It's kind of a doomsday scenario, Dr. Strangelove style. But it *is* moving from a theoretical risk to a real possibility IMHO.

I deleted my instance recently. IMHO the project is falling into the trap of featuritis. It keeps on adding more features (and thus code) that stray away from it's original goal - to be a fediverse alternative to Instagram, focused on pictures. Again, that's my very personal decision. I definitely wish them luck and the right audience! It just isn't me anymore who feels like a good candidate as their target audience. It happens :)

In , authorities only need to report new infections on weekdays. Not during weekend or bank holiday. The curious result: only two(!) new cases reported today while we all know the numbers are on the rise.

The possible, but not (yet) probable scenario: mining rigs are paused/idling, hashrate drops, difficulty goes down and at a coordinated moment you bring all the paused/idling rigs back online, execute the 51% attack before the difficulty rises again.

Mining cost is now on par with Bitcoin price. Could result in many mining rigs being paused. Which ultimately could lead to a coordinated 51% attack using those mining rigs put on idle. Probability is low. But it exists. Numbers source:

testing the $18k now. It already fell through the $20k and $19k. Wiping out more than $40B in „market cap“ on a single day. That’s quite dramatic, isn’t it?

My advice to the new citizens of Mastodon. First of all: Welcome! Thank you for being around.

Find at least one interesting profile by going through their timeline. Have a look at their followers and who they follow. Follow them all :) You can always unfollow later. Give it a bit of time. You don’t have to frantically check your timeline. Once a day or even a week is the better approach. You’ll be surprised how a slow but steady approach results in a fascinating timeline. Hope this helps!

One of these little consequences of a in is that they will have to reduce the power output of nuclear plants when the cooling water gets too warm. Oops.

So has a minister of Justice, Buschmann, who doesn't believe that wearing a mask protects against aerosols that carry virus and thus opposes even planning to reintroduce mask mandates for autumn/winter. Le. Fucking. Sigh.
