So what's going on with Signal's new architecture that retains all user data? It seems like a total reversal of their previous stance and one that dramatically changes their threat model. Their new security properties rely entirely on SGX, which is barely secure against motivated home users, much less nation state adversaries.

decided it was smart to weed the yard during the hottest part of the day. our landlord pays people to mow twice a month, and they've been running a mower over weeds for the last two months, finally got to the weeds before they did.

well, I've definitely drank enough for today. Tomorrow my local tea house is live-streaming a blind-tasting session of four high mountain teas:

well I drank all four, a lot of 'em, and now i can barely type...! i've had (and have) two of these, but the other two I haven't had before, so it's been great to compare these together.

I don't know that "lipu sona pu" is the right construct or grammar for "flashcards from the tokipona book".

i think it is really self-indulgent that pu is used for such a narrow thing, i am already finding that my roommates and i may want to develop our own shorthand words. if the author is willing to be this self-indulgent why shouldn't we?
