Starting with Firefox 59, several protocols that support decentralized architectures are available for use by extensions. The newly approved protocols are:

  • Dat Project (dat://)
  • IPFS (dweb:// ipfs:// ipns://)
  • Secure Scuttlebutt (ssb://)

I don't understand why Firefox 59 approved Dat, IPFS and Secure Scuttlebutt but didn't mention ZeroNet. Because ZeroNet main devs has less communication with Mozilla or the Firefox team? Or the quality of ZeroNet is not good enough? Or because some trolls keep posting hostile content, some people posts illegal content here but they can't be censored, Nofish takes it as low priority and so the platform got ignored? He got invited to TED2017 (but his talk was cancelled several weeks before the conference began.. he still got invited as an audience though), and even RMS reached him and asked for changing the license of ZeroNet from GPLv2 to GPLv3 (but he didn't do it..).

Adding zero:// for ZeroNet can make typing .bit address easier and make the address neater, and it has been discussed several times before.

Nofish said that it always works in this post, but that method only removes localhost:43110 or replaces it with zero, it's still not ideal.

@Polar commented "May ZeroNet is indie, have no company support". I totally agree with it. Firefox is opensource, so I guess the best approach would be by reading the related code and adding it by ourselves.

Btw, recently I'm rocking ZeroBlog design again ^^ Available at ZeroBlog Plus

The main thing is to raise the wipers so that they do not stick.

Well, I threw my pictures of these days in the blog "without politics" :)

A little drink

- Posted in Balancer's Blog (EN) by with comments

I decided to match the Russian image a little and now I mixed vodka with tomato juice. Made several shots Bloody Mary :)

In fact, I rarely drink vodka. Last time he drank it a few months ago. I prefer to drink beer. Slightly less often - cognac or wine. Even rarer - rum or whiskey.

Кормушка

- Posted in Balancer's blog by with comments

Где-то неделю назад в рамках школьного задания мы с дочкой сделали кормушку для птиц. Но на дворе же XXI век. Поэтому я решил повесить кормушку не где-то на улице, а за окном. И направил туда Web-камеру. Поставил программу, которая делает фотоснимки при изменении картинки. Птицы долго игнорировали кормушку, но сегодня прилетела первая синица. К сожалению, синицы едят животную пищу, а у нас в кормушке только растительная. Надо будет расширить меню :)

Жаль, Web-камера у меня через стекло плохо снимает, так что качество плохое.

Meanwhile in Moscow

Meanwhile, in Moscow, winter continues. Over the past two days, the monthly snowfall rate has fallen. In many places the snow lies knee-high. Communal services work continuously, but do not have time to clean all this snow.

Bird feeder

- Posted in Balancer's Blog (EN) by with comments

Somewhere a week ago, as part of a school assignment, my daughter and I made a bird feeder. But in the courtyard is the XXI century. So I decided to hang the feeder not somewhere in the street, but outside. And sent there a Web camera. Put a program that takes pictures when changing the picture. Birds for a long time ignored the trough, but today the first titmouse arrived. Unfortunately, the titmice eat animal food, but we only have a vegetable in the food trough. It will be necessary to expand the menu :)

It's a pity, the web-camera at me through the glass badly removes, so the quality is bad.

Update: In the program, which detects movement in front of the camera, there were a lot of garbage photos. Now I collected from them such a timelapse :)

Just a photo

Just a photo four years ago without any sense :) The temple looks like a toy, but in fact it is a large building, standing much further :)

Moscow subway

- Posted in Balancer's Blog (EN) by with comments

I do not know what modern subway cars look like in the USA. I see them regularly only in the movies, but I do not know how much this corresponds to reality. And in the Moscow metro now there are such interesting trains - they are through. Without separation into individual wagons inside. You can go through the whole train without noticing the change of wagons.

Although, if we talk about the subway, then come across and such vintage cars. Interestingly, the car is relatively new, 2010 built. But it's made "under the old days" :)

Recently opened a new metro station, Troparevo. When I see these trees, the association with the Tree of Pain from Hyperion immediately comes to mind and I look forward to the appearance of the Shrike :)

Школы

- Posted in СССР-Россия. 1988-2018 by with comments

Ещё одно место, в котором изменения были очень яркими. Школа. Советские школы были достаточно утилитарными по сравнению с современными. Но их было очень много. Даже многие небольшие или труднодоступные деревни имели свои школы. Когда я в 1980-м году пошёл в сельскую школу, в моём классе вместе со мной было 7 учеников. В классе, который был на три года старше моего училось только две девочки. Весь класс — два человека :) Это было практически индивидуальное обучение :D В городах, конечно, были и большие классы, в некоторых случаях до 30-40 учащихся. Школы считались очень безопасным местом. Дети уже в первом классе ходили в школу из дома самостоятельно, иногда за несколько километров. И родители не переживали, что с их ребёнком может произойти что-то плохое. Заборы вокруг школ были чисто символическими. А часто отсутствовали вообще.

После начала перестройки и к моменту распада СССР ситуация сильно изменилась. В школах стала появляться наркомания, преступность, алкоголизм. Я уже не застал этот период, потому что окончил школу в 1990 году. Но, конечно, много слышал об этом периоде от родственников и друзей, кто учился в школе в это время или чьи дети там учились. А ещё моя мама — преподаватель.

Потом образование в России подверглось большой переделке. Школ стало намного меньше по количеству, но они стали крупнее. Вокруг школ появились заборы. На входе в школы сидит охрана. Особенно после Беслана, когда чеченцы напали на школу, в результате чего погибло более 300 детей. В последние годы школы подвергаются серьёзному ремонту, переоснащению новейшим оборудованием. Но главная беда — очень низкий престиж преподавателей. Низкие зарплаты учителей, невысокий социальный статус. Это очень большая проблема современной России.

Так выглядели советские школы в 1988 году:

А вот так выглядит моя сельская школа в наше время:

Выглядят сегодня школы, конечно, намного лучше, чем в СССР. Но вот уровень образования стал заметно слабее :-/

School

- Posted in USSR-Russia. 1988-2018 by with comments

Another place where the changes were very bright. School. Soviet schools were quite utilitarian in comparison with modern schools. But there were a lot of them. Even many small or inaccessible villages had their own schools. When I went to rural school in 1980, there were 7 students with me in my class. In the classroom, which was three years older than mine, there were only two girls. The whole class is two people :) It was practically individual training :D In cities, of course, there were also large classes, in some cases up to 30-40 students. Schools were considered a very safe place. Children already in the first class went to school from home independently, sometimes for several kilometers. And parents did not worry that something bad could happen to their child. Fences around schools were purely symbolic. And often absent at all.

After the beginning of perestroika, and by the time of the collapse of the USSR, the situation has changed a lot. In schools, began to appear drug addiction, crime, alcoholism. I already did not find this period, because I graduated from school in 1990. But, of course, I've heard a lot about this period from relatives and friends who studied at school at this time or whose children were studying there. And my mother is a teacher.

Then, education in Russia underwent a major alteration. Schools became much smaller in number, but they became larger. Around the schools appeared fences. At the entrance to the school sits guard. Especially after Beslan, when the Chechens attacked the school, which resulted in the death of more than 300 children. In recent years, schools have undergone serious repairs, re-equipment with the latest equipment. But the main trouble is the very low prestige of teachers. Low salaries of teachers, low social status. This is a very big problem for modern Russia.

Soviet schools looked like this in 1988:

And this is what my rural school looks like today:

Schools look much better today than in the USSR. But here the level of education has become noticeably weaker :-/
