    Mastering the Lightning Network (LN)

    Project mention: Phoenix wallet 1% fee for channel creation? | /r/lightningnetwork | 2023-06-08

    p.s.: if you're unfamiliar with these terms, I suggest you read the How the Lightning Network works chapter of Mastering The Lightning Network by Andreas Antonopoulos. It's not too technical and if you have a basic understanding of Bitcoin, you won't have any trouble reading it.

    Project mention: Raspberry pi from a shitcoin project | /r/Bitcoin | 2023-06-15

    Looking at this teardown it does seem to be a raspberry pi 4. If that PI has a 4gb or 8gb then you can install umbrel easily, the instructions are here: The teardown shows a fan. But you will also need some SSD for storing the Bitcoin blockchain. And perhaps some case/frame to hold it all together.

    Project mention: Zig: The Modern Alternative to C | | 2023-03-10

    In a way I feel that everything is an alternative to everything and at the same time nothing is.

    As you said it all depends on the circumstances. But I don't really see Zig competing with Go. They both can do mostly the same things, but they both approach them from quite a different sides.

    For example bash is being used in:

    - gaming (

    - web apps (

    - networking

    - CLIs

    - distributed systems (

    - crypto (

    - systems programming (

    - language tooling

    Some of those make more sense than others. However we all talk about a mythical general case. For every language there are niches that are covered by it more significantly. For Go it would probably be web backend. It doesn't mean it is only suited to this one niche, it is used in everything. In general it is used there more. I don't believe that Rust sees the most use in the same niche to the same order that Go sees it.

    Is Rust or Zig an alternative to php, awk or Lisp? In practice I don't really think so.

    I guess it all depends on one's definition of "alternative". I don't think that a statistical Go programmer would see Zig as a real alternative. Statistical C programmer might see it as a Go alternative, but that probably would not be a question he would ask.
