"Blockchain Technology Overview" by NIST

> technology is still new and should be investigated with the mindset of “how could blockchain technology potentially benefit us?” rather than “how can we make our problem fit into the blockchain technology paradigm?”.

Worth reading, for fans and skeptics.

Or what torrents to seed? I already have Qubes-OS 4.0, tails 3.8 and openSUSE Leap 15.

I bought a VPS server. Quite powerful machine: 4x 2.6GHz CPU, 4GB RAM, 100GB disk space, 100Mb/s network with unlimited transfer. I already installed on it tor relay, i2pd, transmission-daemon and ipfs. Any suggestions what else could I install?

So I got myself Librem 15, because there was a discount. Meanwhile this popped up: mntmn.com/reform/ by @mntmn . It fulfills all requirements and avoids problems I mentioned in earlier toots. Unfortunately, after buying Librem, I'm a little low on funds and have enough laptops. Anyway I'll keep an eye on MNT Reform, it looks great!

So my accountant emailed me about some minor issue, but what's remarkable, her email was encrypted with .

Thanks , and !

Another important take-away from my meetings already: calling MEPs is way more effective than e-mailing them.

E-mailing MEPs with a standard e-mail from a template can actually be counter-productive.

If you can, please *call* your MEPs. You can find your MEP here:
europarl.europa.eu/meps/en/map

If you'd rather e-mail, please write two-three paragraphs in your own words, from your e-mail address. Even if it's not as slick as the template, it will work way better!

I've recently seen plenty of Linux gamers get excited about DXVK and it is an interesting technology. However, you should remember that buying Windows games to play with it doesn't really help Linux gaming. "No Tux No Bux" is still the most reliable way to support the platform and make sure it develops on all levels.
