CryptPad version 2.21.0 has been deployed and released on GitHub: github.com/xwiki-labs/cryptpad

This release mostly consists of bug fixes and translations, but we've also put some time towards making life easier for server administrators.

People in are celebrating labour day by rioting.

I decided to mark the occasion by supporting the labour behind one of my favourite free software projects by donating $20 a month to support Pixelfed development.

If you're using Pixelfed and are lucky enough to have some disposable income, consider pitching in: patreon.com/dansup/posts

Good morning, umbrellas are antisocial and aggressive, raincoats are the weather protection of the proletariat

Using to format a research project proposal and coincidentally my laptop has fully locked up and then crashed my DE three times. Guess I have to use google docs?

Mozilla is shutting down their IRC servers and moving to Discord, a proprietary chat service.

Hey Mozilla, aren't we forgetting something here? Our very own "Mozilla Pledge for a Healthy Internet” states:

> Principle 2 The internet is a global public resource that must remain open and accessible.

> Principle 6 The effectiveness of the internet as a public resource depends upon interoperability (protocols, data formats, content), innovation and decentralized participation worldwide.

This weekend I prototyped an app I've been thinking about for a while. I was inspired by cryptorpg.com/ (Cryptomancer RPG).

It's an encrypted chat room with dice-rolling functionality, but the rolls are provably fair thanks to some fun .

It uses some APIs from the @cryptpad server so I didn't have to do all the low-level websocket stuff again.

I'll publish the source and deploy it somewhere as soon as I clean it up a bit and improve the UX. #
