antwort auf alles dicht machen (corona)
Auf der Suche nach einer Person die mein 3m x 4m Zimmer in #darmstadt Arheilgen übernimmt. Interesse? Kennt ihr jemanden, der jemand kennt? Frühestens ab 01.05. besteht die Möglichkeit für knapp 400€ in eine familiäre WG zu ziehen aus einem verrückten Haufen zugänglicher Menschen in sozialen Berufen. Es gibt einen großen Garten, Wohnzimmer, Küche, 2 Bäder, insgesamt 4+2 Personen, Garage, Parkmöglichkeiten, Straßenbahn und Fußwege.
Den Großteil der Einrichtung würde ich am liebsten übergeben ;)
FYI If you're using Google Pay, you *will* lose access to your funds if Google suspends your account (along with email, YouTube, and anything else in the ecosystem)
I don't use it personally, but I have an account and they just sent me an email about a ToS change
BTW I will block anyone who starts with "stop using Google lol" or similar cause it's asinine. It's not just search
My state's GOVERNMENT PORTAL uses Google's captcha and other services
Until it gets broken up, Google is inescapable
This is downtown Lisbon right now. Empty streets. No one is outside despite the fairly warm winter. This is how we drive back the epidemic when our hospitals are on the brink of collapse.
Does it suck? Certainly.
But please consider:
- Would our kids rather have formal education or living parents?
- Would we rather have a fancy hairdo for 2 weeks or properly functioning lungs for the next 40 years?
- Would we trade the availability of lifesaving surgeries for a party with friends?
I don't understand why some people were "laughing" about #Signal being down.
I fully agree that decentralization is clearly a better alternative to #WhatsApp.
However, IMO, each person that leaves WhatsApp, should be counted as a victory. Even if it's still towards #Telegram or Signal.
Don't be an arrogant a**hole, help people leave WhatsApp. This migration shows us that more and more people are becoming aware of their right to privacy.
Let's just live one day at a time, shall we?
Every few months I come back to a fundamental problem for backups:
How do I replicate my backups in an encrypted way to a few machines that I do not own without any of that hyped blockchain shizzel?
I imagine a system where all I have to backup are my encryption key (and some minimal metadata) but everything else can go bust.
There is thaoe-lafs but the complexity of it makes it not a great fit for a system I want to rely on :/
Is there anything else? Did I miss something?
There's a new "experimental feature" being tested in Firefox 83: sponsored sites in the URL bar.
"Mozilla works with advertising partners to place sponsored tiles on the Firefox home page (or New Tab) that would be useful to Firefox users. Mozilla is paid when users click on sponsored tiles."
You can disable this by setting `browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.showSponsoredTopSites` to `false`.
Interesting OS security project: https://spectrum-os.org
* each app runs in a separate KVM container
* each VM is generated by a #Nix derivation
* graphics output is composited together via wayland/virtio
The idea is not too dissimilar to #QubesOS
, with the following main differences:
* Xen -> KVM
* Fedora/Debian -> #NixOS
* Xorg -> wayland/virtio
You can read more about the details here: https://spectrum-os.org/design.html
Mostly (F)OSS, privacy, Nix(OS) and usually very grumpy about the state of everything..
