This is just a start, but as you know, I always appreciate your feedback. So let me know what you think!
Pop!_Planet has now released a Pop Classic icon pack that you can easily install to get consistent icons back under Pop!_OS 19.04.

A few weeks ago I wrote about #Zim and how I use it to organize my daily work, https://www.schiessle.org/articles/2018/11/01/keep-yourself-organized/ In the blog I mention that I still miss a great mobile app. Yesterday I discovered that #Markor has already basic Zim support, which is a great step forward for my daily usage. I'm sure it will get better and better over time.
There was recently a lot of news about DNS over HTTPS. Some people say it's bad for privacy because it centralizes the DNS requests on Google, Cloudflare and Quad9.

~=8 Character Passwords Are Dead=~
New benchmark from the Hashcat Team shows a 2080Ti GPU passing 100 Billion password guesses per second (NTLM hash).
This means that the entire keyspace, or every possible combination of:

A bit of a status update on work this month:
* #Fortress is getting a face-lift of its detection of h-cards so it'll be more accurate.
* #Koype is entering a heavy bug-fixing mode and its CI system is being locked down.
* The landing site is being re-built to highlight Patreon contributors (been punting on this for some time)
I'll be updating the Patreon followers over at http://patreon.com/jackyalcine with more updates (that'll be the place until a more solid bridge is in place).

open registration: any and all assholes can flood your instance
closed registration: no one can sign up
This is the worst binary and it's ridiculous that we're still stuck with it in 2019.
For the love of all things not shitty, please start making admin-approval ques for signups. That instances for years now have to have a separate form on a separate website to moderate their communities is really silly.
