Nope, it's a runtime configuration thing! Debian sources a global S/Mime configuration that's missing on NixOS, just copying smime.rc fixed it already. Now investigating if I can fix that package properly...

Debugging S/MIME in Mutt on ... I got a working Docker container with my configuration, so it's got to be some build configuration / dependency thing...

After visiting art museums I always feel an urge to create.

Here's a fun TIL: Because the ratio of terms in the Fibonacci sequence approaches phi, and because phi is close to the ratio of km to miles, you can approximate conversion between distances with adjacent Fibonacci numbers.

So 2 km ≈ 1 mile, 3 km ≈ 2 miles, 5 km ≈ 3 miles, 8 km ≈ 5 miles, 13 km ≈ 8 miles, etc, etc

PirateBay is using visitors' browsers to mine Bitcoin?

The problem is that you're running untrusted code any time you visit some random website. This is hardly the worst thing that can happen to you. Actually, it's probably one of the least (except maybe to your battery life).

If it is public money, it should be public code as well! I support @fsf's call for more #publiccode: publiccode.eu/

Cellular automata is fun, but my favorite CA is Wireworld because I like how it looks and acts like circuitry. I wrote a (very bad) wireworld implementation in Emacs a while ago: dustycloud.org/blog/wireworld-

The most exciting thing in Wireworld is the Wireworld Computer: web.archive.org/web/2017031419

However, this implementation of Tetris in Conway's Game of Life blows that all away: codegolf.stackexchange.com/que

Really cool step-by-step explanation. Coolest thing I've read all month!

Hi, I'm @mmn, maintainer of GNUsocial. I reacted when it was written that "many people on gnusocial are angry" and wish to say that !GNUsocial has only love and appreciation for #Mastodon and #ActivityPub.

I believe cooperation is important for libre software and the federated social web. I believe our plural and diverse community should embrace and encourage contributors and development. Any progress we want to make - regardless of anyone's preferred technology - is impeded by hostility and empowered by friendship.

So I want to say thank @cwebber @gargron et al. for all the hard work you actively put into ActivityPub. It's awesome that so many users get in touch with !fs via open protocols.

Here's a list of things wrong with the vote counting software: news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1

You know there's people who install 5 anti-viruses because they're so afraid they're just gonna catch one while idling; and then there's people who set a test/test password on voting software plugged into the internet
