@thomasfuchs if I may pick a nit, all of ASCII fits into 7 bits (which is why UTF-8 is even possible), which means you can have the full range of uppercase and lowercase letters using only 7 bits
but if I'm wrong and the Apple II used some other 7-bit encoding that only had uppercase letters then sorry

What happens when you make jam, but with pieces of hot dogs instead of berries, and beer instead of water?
yeah I wasn't kidding it's the worst thing I've ever seen, and I'm surprised and angry that someone decided to make this
@feld @hrthu @karen Matrix does one thing I'm not aware of any other protocol doing, which is decentralized messaging rooms. (As in, no central authority "owns" the room) And I'm not so sure that that *can* be done with a simpler protocol than what Matrix is.
(Of course, the client-to-server protocol is already absolutely uncomplicated, all the complicated stuff happens in the server-to-server protocol)
The IBM PS/2 Model 25 is my all-time favorite PC. Letting go of two of them, if you’re looking for a project! I think it might be neat to hook up the VGA monitors they use to an external video source & use it for emulation of old DOS games. If you can pick up in eastern PA in the next few weeks you can have one for free, DM me. More info here: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F163654352346
So @keybase is not going to bother with micro/family instances (e.g. <5 users). Great.
Careful Fediverse, "centralization"-first is coming. Or at least "large-instances-first".
Keybase recommends to use the website verification for those small instances, fine, but this won't support the encrypted messages that were proudly announced 7 paragraphs before.
