After setting up the encryption, it remains as the default from that point forward and cannot be turned off. Riot does store information, it asked for elevated storing permission on the webapp and surely the app does as well. However, you can look for another matrix client that does not.

I'm unsure about iOS, but you can download riot from f-droid without requiring a phone number or be associated with an account.

Here's the list of supported matrix clients, there's also a feature comparison list on the same page.

Yep, it must be set up manually on each room per device. It can be pain in the ass if you have lots of people in a room, and a fantastic way to boycott a group if you have the permissions to do so.

Lately, I've been asked to verify my device for encryption using Riotx and the web app, but it's not working despite being connected on both using the same network.

Riot is the official messaging service for Raddle, we use it for the same reasons you listed while being easy to set up. There are still considerations, like the web app requiring javascript, luckily there are other matrix clients to choose from.

First of all, it's horrible security practice to go online and inform the whole world that you're going to rob a bank and how you'll do. Second, trying to get accomplices like that is another huge no. You either don't have a full picture on what you're doing or you're a huge honeypot. Whichever the case, it's not accepted here.

The pain is sporadic and does not disrupt me even at its worst. I can take paracetamol to handle soft pain, or a single OTC anti-inflamatory pill for the worst. Medicine regulation is almost non-existent here, so if needed, I can get harder stuff by paying full price.

I was with you until Jotaro.

I feel that dominance is Stardust Crusaders is presented in being stoic, the contrast is more prominent with the very expressive Joseph and Polnareff. The main villain is also most successful while he remains collected and analytical, instead of the most emotional and expressive of his downfall.

On Diamond is Unbreakable, I don't consider identity as central as you suggested. I see that dominance is asserted by outsmarting your opponent. Power in battle take a back seat, what's important is the strategic use of one's ability and your opponent's weaknesses.

On Golden Wind, dominance equals violence, and it is violent. Every battle is a battle to the death and very gruesome things happen. I guess from this point on we're back on track.

On Dio representing the bottom, there's something else to add. His powers were not his. The World is supposed to represent the combination of everything, so he has a combination of the Joestar's stands. Joseph's Purple Hermit's remote viewing, Jotaro's time stopping/strength/speed, but nothing unique to him besides his cunning and vampire abilities.

Thanks for the link! I'll check them out.

A bit of body weight training, mostly upper body because it's dangerously weakened and I need the core training due to a bad back. Sadly, I'm not making any progress because it's hard for me making a schedule with two small children to keep an eye on.

It's mid morning and I haven't done shit of work. I'll have to stay up late, lol.

I want to make strength exercises, but everytime I do the smallest effort my hip inflames and takes away all strength and flexibility on top on consistent pain.

Anyways, back to work.
