Video calls in Dino are slowly coming together. We are already making successful OMEMO encrypted video calls! The feature is included in our nightly builds now, but there's still further work to be done. #dino #xmpp

I'm finding that the browser based Converse.js client by @jcbrand is a well featured and good experience.

Open 👏 Source 👏 Companies 👏 Get 👏 Off 👏 Discord

They are absolutely shit if you do anything to protect your privacy.

I straight up refuse to invest anything substantial (money/time) on an open project if the only promoted/official means for real time discussion is a closed source platform with a bad security and privacy track record.

You shouldn't either.

Familiar with :apple_inc: Swift, UIKit, and know your way around XCode? Want to help advance the state of #XMPP on #iOS? :xmpp: 📱 We're looking for developers to help bring our iOS app over the finish line! 🏁

This will be a paid short-term project producing FLOSS. DM or email if you're interested.

Not an iOS dev? That's okay, boosts appreciated too! 🙂

Tweet from Per Bylund (@PerBylund), at 4 May, 7:47 am - We should be ready, when the economic downturn comes, for the standard arguments that, somehow, the market failed and voluntary exchanges caused the crisis while manipulating people's trade opportunities and the medium of exchange had nothing to do with it.

WTF ... Mozilla had always running JavaScript inside PDFs disabled by default.

But now with FF 88 this option is ENABLED by default. Which means, if a PDF file contains JS it will run without any user interaction. What can possibly go wrong?

To disable this:

pdfjs.enableScripting --> false

# FF 78.10 ESR doesn't include this option and still blocks JS in PDFs by default. Just tested.

Conversations and Ltt․rs are available for free on the Google Play Store today.

"A free and open source Jabber/XMPP client for Android. Easy to use, reliable, battery friendly. With built-in support for images, group chats and e2e encryption."

50th release of #OpenBSD today! #OpenBSD 6.9

Congratulations to all the developers, "old" and 'new"!

We plan to do the upgrade next week, during which we will migrate from bridge(4)/vether(4) to veb(4)/vport(4).


It's here! v6.9 has been released. It's a testament to its record of more than 20 years with only two remote holes in the default install.

A reminder that my employer is hiring for a wide variety of roles. All are remote right now, many are remote always. EMEA and US are set up for hiring. #infosecjobs #appsec #getfedihired

I'm personally hiring two researchers—one for API security, one for binary static analysis

Over the past 15 years of using #XMPP, I've seen many messengers come and go. People complain about the hassle of switching messengers, but many express a preference for the "simplicity" of gated gardens.... Do they count the cost of switching as well?

A truly sustainable messenger can only be a decentralized protocol, not just an app.

Do any instance admins know how to undo an account set as a memoriam?

I was curious about it’s exact functionality as it doesn’t appear to be documented anywhere and now the user account I tested it on is locked out.

I’ve tried various options using tootctl commands (activate, unblock etc) but the account still can’t be logged into.

Pro tip: don’t set a Mastodon account as a memoriam if you ever want to gain access to it again 😂
