Yeah, and they get really offended if you tell them that…

Made this with the Stable Diffusion AI “Pikachu as corgie” was the prompt:

Would you like to know more? 😅

Musk even admitted recently that his hyperloop hyping was partially done to derail (no pun intended) the Californian plans for regular high-speed rail.

This only tells us what they do by default and without gag-order. They could still be forced to log specific users and are barred from telling us by legal request.

Furthermore, it is known from Telegram disclosures that the FBI has been approaching staff from messenger companies with the offer of quite a lot of money to act as moles inside these companies.

As long as Signal is a centralized service with servers in the US, neither problem can be solved and that makes Signal inherently unsafe to use.

I was referring to the “no account creation required” and given how other online services seem to be doing fine with accounts I don’t think it is as big of a hurdle as you make it seem.

Of course automatic discovery of accounts based on phone numbers is a different topic, but there are also plenty of people who hate that feature (Telegram has a special feature to not allow that even).

The original argument is that Signal does not want to create a social graph of user accounts on their server and rather rely on the already existing one of the users phone book.

But that is very narrow thinking and ultimately counterproductive as others have pointed out here already.

The problem is not the account, but the mandatory phone number verification.

XMPP with the Android Conversations or BlabberIM client works pretty well as an alternative and uses the same high quality encryption as Signal.

Sure, I understand. However it will be hard to find volunteers helping out if they can’t even understand what is on the website.

On a side-note: https://jix.im/ is a Polish operated free XMPP service that might be willing to put up a virtual host for your domain on their XMPP server.

Hmm, they seem to be very Polish language specific. Might be better to find someone there to help out.

Hmm, the banana might be a bit much, maybe with plantain banana it would be better? But Pineapple & curry sounds like a good mix 😊

Needs a version with “What state planners think a city looks like Vs. what it actually looks like” 🤦‍♂️

Uhm, where did you get that picture of me from? 😱

High speed rail is actually incredibly destructive to normal speed rail and the main reason why most countries lost a good railway network and are left with expensive to operate and use high-speed rail on a few main connections.

My theory why that happens with some ceramics plates is that the glazing is damaged and it got soaked with water.

In Mario it is the same, but in real-life it would be not, as you could try to hold on to something on the wall in the left one. At least that is what our evolution shaped brain thinks.

Obviously the gplay version is more convenient and also updated more quickly, however the F-Droid version is compiled by a trustworthy 3rd party, so you can be pretty sure that what you get is really based on the officially available source code and does not include any hidden modifications. Depending on you “paranoia” level that might be relevant to you or not 😅

That is pretty cool, but is there also a selfhostable version with an easy API? Similar to Libre translate.

A system for live translations in chat without depending on external FAANG API would be nice.

Homebrew server club, a selfhosting from home community

Kinda extreme though 😅

A bit more focus on energy efficient computing at home?
There are already loads of "selfhosted" communities, mostly focusing on software run on VPS. I think it would be nice to have a community here that is focusing a bit more on the [Homebrewserver.club](https://homebrewserver.club/) ethos and cool stuff like [off-grid solar powered websites](https://solar.lowtechmagazine.com/2018/09/how-to-build-a-lowtech-website.html).
