Tristesse sur les réseaux sociaux. "Grumpy Cat" - "Chatte grincheuse" en français - qui amusait tout le monde en faisant la gueule en permanence, est morte en Arizona. Sa maîtresse l'a annoncé ce vendredi. "Grumpy" avait des millions de fans sur Facebook, Twitter et Instagram.

"Splendeurs et misères des courtisanes"" - Part 2 ;) or The miracle of rebrending! :)
[Librem Official]:For example:
A major goal with Librem One was to provide people with convenient and easy-to-use alternatives to big tech services that respected their privacy. The key to this was the combination of decentralized services with a centralized brand. With decentralized services that used open standards and ran on free software, users aren’t locked in to any one provider and can even host services themselves (more on that in a future blog post).
By putting services under a centralized brand, we make these decentralized services just as convenient to use as the big tech alternatives. That way an end-user doesn’t have to know what Matrix, ActivityPub, or even IMAP are or try to find all of the applications that work with those services on their particular platform. Instead, they just need to know that they want to chat, join social media, or send email.
Librem Chat = Riot,
Librem Social = Tusky,
Librem Mail = K-9,
Librem Tunnel = Ics-openvpn.
Postfix + Dovecot for Librem Mail,
Matrix for Librem Chat,
Mastodon for Librem Social.
Wonderful work! :)

"Splendeurs et misères des courtisanes" - Part 1 ;) or the First Librem One Bug Report
Kyle RankinMORE: https://puri.sm/posts/underscoring-our-transparency-first-librem-one-bug-report/
We are super excited about our Librem One launch, if you can’t tell, but to make things even more exciting, we also have hit a different milestone with the service: our first security bug! We believe in transparency in general and especially when it comes to security. Security bugs happen in all software and services and our stance is the best approach is not just to address security issues as soon as possible but to be up front and alert you to security issues as soon as possible.
One of our keen community members rae discovered a severe security vulnerability in the Librem Chat service that allowed them to login to our chat server as any user. This is obviously a serious vulnerability and so we immediately shut down that chat server while we investigated.
It turns out the bug was related to a change that was made in the unreleased “master” branch of the matrix-appservice-ldap3 plugin being used by Librem Chat to authenticate users over LDAP. The bug ultimately came down to a mistake in a single line of code in a function related to LDAP searches:
- result = yield self._ldap_simple_bind( + result, _ = yield self._ldap_simple_bind(
What a difference an underscore makes. See https://twitter.com/matrixdotorg/status/1123298776725303299 for the security notice from the Matrix team

During the security incident on Matrix.org’s production infrastructure, the attacker may have had access to the key we use to sign the #Riot #Android #app. Unfortunately, it is impossible to replace this #key without replacing the application....
In future, we will be storing the signing key offline for maximum security.
#SecurityByDefault without any incident is too much for a #software project?
F-Droid will follow the name change but will do it at a later point the f-droid signing key wasn't exposed so technically there's no need to switch the appid but it would create some confusion and maintenance overhead to not follow, so this is our best option.source: https://riot.im/app/#/room/!GnEEPYXUhoaHbkFBNX:matrix.org/$155604992558eWCFV:bubu1.eu?via=matrix.org&via=chat.weho.st&via=tchncs.de

Ripcord A desktop chat client for Discord and Slack
Ripcord is a desktop chat client for group-centric services like Slack and Discord. It provides a traditional compact desktop interface designed for power users. Itʼs not built on top of web browser technology: it responds quickly to input, sips gently from computer resources, and gets out of your way. It does voice chat, too.
* Not made from a web browser * Tabs * Multiple windows * Multiple accounts * Voice chat * Graphical emoji (including custom emoji) * Tab completion for user names and emoji * Powerful batch editing * Custom bookmark lists for easily accessing only the channels you actually use * Customizable fonts, colors, and sizes * Variable DPI and multi-monitor support * Low CPU and memory usage * Zero GPU usage * No tracking or analytics

"Video visitation" services cost as much as 50 cents per minute.

Prison inmates in orange jumpsuits use video-visitation kiosks.
Enlarge / Kiosks from GTL, a leading video-visitation provider.
After April 15, inmates at the Adult Detention Center in Lowndes County, Mississippi will no longer be allowed to visit with family members face to face. Newton County, Missouri, implemented an in-person visitor ban last month. The Allen County Jail in Indiana phased out in-person visits earlier this year.
All three changes are part of a nationwide trend toward "video visitation" services. Instead of seeing their loved ones face to face, inmates are increasingly limited to talking to them through video terminals. Most jails give family members a choice between using video terminals at the jail—which are free—or paying fees to make calls from home using a PC or mobile device.
Even some advocates of the change admit that it has downsides for inmates and their families. Ryan Rickert, jail administrator at the Lowndes County Adult Detention Center, acknowledged to The Commercial Dispatch that inmates were disappointed they wouldnʼt get to see family members anymore. Advocates of this approach point to an upside for families: they can now make video calls to loved ones from home instead of having to physically travel to the jail.
These services are ludicrously expensive. Video calls cost 40¢ per minute in Newton County, 50¢ per minute in Lowndes County, and $10 per call in Allen County. Outside of prison, of course, video calls on Skype or FaceTime are free.
These "visitation" services are also noticeably inferior to mainstream video calling apps. When I was working on a story about the video visitation trend last year, I wanted to try the technology out for myself. So I called inmate Justin Harker at the Knox County Jail in Tennessee. As I wrote at the time, the video was grainy and jerky, periodically freezing up altogether. The call cost me 19¢ per minute.
Harker told me that on-site calls are somewhat better quality. But he still said that these video calls were no substitute for a face-to-face visit. "Itʼs not the same," he said.
So why are so many jails adopting them? A big motivator is money. In-person visits are labor intensive. Prison guards need to escort inmates to and from visitation rooms, supervise the visits, and in some cases pat down visitors for contraband. In contrast, video terminals can be installed inside each cell block, minimizing the need to move inmates around the jail.
Video-visitation systems also directly generate revenue for jails. The companies behind the video calling products typically install equipment inside jails at no cost to taxpayers, charge high fees to family members, and then pay a large share of those fees back to the jail.
Inmates in Newton Count, Missouri can also pay 10¢ per message for instant messaging, the Joplin Globe reports. Newton County gets a share of the proceeds.
Of course, jails could offer video calling without shutting down in-person visits. But the fact that jails get a share of the proceeds from these services creates a perverse incentive for them to end in-person visits. As long as in-person visits are available, many family members will take the time to drive to prison and see their loved one. But if only video visits are available on site, more family members will opt for the convenience and privacy they get by calling from home.
