    I am using Bitwarden since couple of years and I am quite happy about that. I have also used KeepassXC in the past because Bitwarden URL was blocked by company firewall. The only feature that is truly missing is a way to check and remove duplicate entry.

      What about GNU Jami? It’s a truly decentralized messaging system based on OpenDHT.

      1. 2

        I’d never heard of Jami before! Definitely looks interesting. Have you tried it? What has been your experience with it?

        1. 2

          I have installed, but I don’t have anyone to chat with. I tried to chat between my phone and my PC, but it’s just a test.

          Anyway, I think the technology is quite interesting and promising.

          1. 3

            I’ve just created a user with the name munksgaard. Feel free to contact me on there, I’m curious to try it out.

            1. 3

              I’ve just contacted you in Danish. :)

              1. 2

                Takeaway:

                Jami — formerly Ring — is distributed and E2E encrypted, and you can link several devices to one account.

                However, while text messages sent from contacts are echoed to every device, my own messages only appear on the device from where it was sent. This is a highly frustrating experience.

                Also, Jami does not support groups yet.

                If the latter two issues were fixed, I would probably prefer Jami to both Signal and Telegram when I ditch WhatsApp soon.

        I am using Feedwrangler since 2 years, but the lack of an Android app is a big problem. I am thinking about self hosting a Miniflux istance when the year subscribtion with Feedwrangler will end.

          Why not using Docker Swarm? It’s very easy to setup and mantain.

          1. 3

            As far as I know Swarm is no longer maintained since the acquisition of Docker.

            1. 2

              https://www.mirantis.com/blog/mirantis-will-continue-to-support-and-develop-docker-swarm/

              Mirantis will continue the development and support of Docker Swarm.

              1. 2

                Oh, I wasn’t aware of that, thanks for pointing that out. I really enjoyed Docker Swarm previously, it is straightforward to use.

                I would say Nomad is able to orchestrate more than just containers and it brings integration points with other Hashicorp products like Vault or Consul.

                1. 1

                  For Vault, you can use Secrets: https://docs.docker.com/engine/swarm/secrets/

                  Consul is supported on Docker Swarm.

              Starting cycling again after 15 years. I take advantage of working from home to go cycling at least one hour every day: I lost weight, I am feeling better mentally, I can sleep better in the night, my cycling fitness is improving day by day and I know my body better every day.

              1. 1

                Indoor or outdoor? If indoor, what vendor/model are you using? I’m looking at getting a cycling bike (Schwinn I think because I don’t have Peloton money) due to the colder weather.

                1. 2

                  I am living in Italy and the weather right now is still good for cycling, then I prefer go outdoor. I have also a turbo trainer that I am using when it’s raining or when I did not have the time to go out on daylight. It’s just a simple one (Tacx Blue) without any frills. Anyway I don’t like too much training indoor, I think it’s quite boring but I recognize that an indoor training session is a big boost for the fitness and you can have a more accurate structured workout.

                  traveling to Denmark to spend the week in a remote house near the sea.

                  pandemic prevented us from taking any kind of vacation. so, really looking forward to it.

                            You can find rentals on https://www.dansommer.dk/

                            It seems to combine all the different rental services in their search.

                          Start biking again. I am leaving up to the hills in Tuscany, so having the opportunity to ride a bike an hour every day it’s a very good experience. It’s a big help to relief working stress.

                              I had a Python script that is getting data from Airtable, crunch them and send a report via email through Firefox Send. Unfortunately Firefox Send is no longer working, so I had to migrate. I would like to migrate over Lambda + S3, so I can take advantage of serverless.

                                      I was an happy user of InoReader, but when they change licensing model it was not enough for me. So I stumbled upon Feed Wrangler and I subscribe it.

                                      Pros

                                      • Very simple and clean UI
                                      • Very easy to use
                                      • Good Price

                                      Cons

                                      • No Android app

                                        There is also https://feedbase.org/ that regularly fetches Atom/RSS-feeds and exposes the items using the nntp protocol, allowing you to follow the feeds using a news reader.

                                          Trying to implement a POCSAG/DAPNET decoder in GNURadio. Experiencing with radio listening while waiting my HAM radio callsign

                                          1. 3

                                            I’d give Tanenbaum’s Computer Networks a shot, for 2 reasons (I didn’t read it).

                                            • I loved Operating Systems and how it was written
                                            • I didn’t like Kurose’s book on Networking that was our official book at university
                                              • I probably have to add that I wasn’t a total beginner when I took this networking course, I had been working as developer for years already, so a lot of the material wasn’t new to me. I simply didn’t like the presentation.

                                            Also Beej’s guide to network programming.

                                            There’s a few points to add, though

                                            • if the revision of the book is “kinda” old: TCP/IP didn’t change except for specifics, still read these books
                                            • top layers have changed, but it’s absolutely fine to e.g. learn about HTTP/1.1 and then additionally, later read about HTTP2
                                            • iirc there’s not much about P2P networking, but it builds on the basics
                                            • “carrier-grade” routing like BGP or OSPF might be seen as mandatory by some, but I’d still call it advanced and so you should probably postpone this. Also the chances might be low you ever need it, if all you do is administering stuff “in a building” or “inside the data center” :)
                                            1. 2

                                              I did read Tanenbaum’s Computer Networks and highly recommend it for self-study.

                                              1. 1

                                                +1 The best book about networking. If you want something more work oriented, you can read Cisco CCNA preparation books.

                                              2. 1

                                                I own a few of his books including Computer Networks and Operating Systems. In every case, his style is to be pretty thorough. His books are like reading a (guided) encyclopedia. It’s easy to read, but it’s too slow for me.

                                                I’d prefer a slightly faster path to get to the most important information.

                                                For this reason I don’t really recommend Computer Networks unless you want the comprehensive, but still easy to read version. For most developers today, starting with High Performance Browser Networks and then going to the TCP/IP layer is a good use of time. However I haven’t yet found a good book on TCP/IP (including TCP/IP Illustrated).

                                              1. 4

                                                Why still using twisted in 2020 when asyncio is part of the standard library or you can use more advanced async libraries like Trio or Curio?

                                                1. 3

                                                  What’s wrong with twisted? It’s battle tested and works well.

                                                  1. 1

                                                    I have been used heavily years ago and I hate him :) The deferred/callback/errback mechanism is very powerful, but the code readability and code maintenance is terrible.

                                                    I find asyncio easier to mantain and I really love Trio

                                                    1. 1

                                                      For a while now you can use async/await with twisted. Makes the code a lot more readable.

                                                      1. 1

                                                        And the article shows that… :)

                                                  2. 1

                                                    Odds are, if it’s a networking or network-related problem, and someone else has encountered it in the past, Twisted will already have the solution either in Twisted itself or in its ecosystem.

                                                    That’s pretty hard to beat.
