european citizens' initiative for universal basic income,

if you're eligible to sign it (are an EU citizen) i urge you to do so
julia does concerning tech stuff (tldr encrypted untrusted incremental backups)
i have incremental backups of my root filesystem using btrfs snapshots. on trusted hosts, this isn't a problem, since i can ensure intrusion detection and have everything encrypted.
on untrusted hosts, doing encryption with luks is barely an inconvenience for an intruder who's able to take a ramdump. i'm not exactly sure what the best option is here... any ideas?
my current sleep rythm is what some might refer to as "absolutely fucked"

discord is a corporation
the developer of discord.py is formally deprecating the project, and the only path forward would be for someone else to make a different version under a new name.
essentially, they've been in a constant battle with Discord staff and had their requests completely ignored, and with the latest changes to the API, they have lost all motivation to work on the project. because no one else they trust was able to take over ownership, they're shutting it down.
they made a big post on GitHub about it if you want to read the full story. it's a mess: https://gist.github.com/Rapptz/4a2f62751b9600a31a0d3c78100287f1
from what it seems, there's a good chance that a lot of major Discord bots will not work when the deadline in April 2022 comes by and Discord wants all the bots to switch to the new API. and there's not much you can really do about it
