@xpac mit IPv6-only komme ich klar. Mit den vielen Admins, die keine aktuellen (25 Jahre alten) Technologien bereitstellen, habe ich ein Problem.

Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.

The good: I've found my phone again after an "I've lost a machine.. literally _lost_. it responds to ping, ..." situation.
The bad: the buffers of `yes | termux-tts-speak` are ridiculously large.

Thanks to #FreeSoftware developers, the German #CoronaWarnApp for tracing #COVID19 risk contacts is available on @fdroidorg without any Google dependencies. This not only fosters software freedom, but also sets the ground for innovative features.

Even if I was totally OK with this site collecting all the information about me (which I'm not), I'd definitely prefer to have a plain text site. Win-win 😃

On the practical side, this would not need anything CLA-like for patches to the core, and contributions to the copyleft part would need to be flagged either with the permissive license, or (probably for more signficiant changes) the patch author would enter an agreement with the maintainer that'd trigger relicensing and payment once that component is "bought out".

Question for the commutity:
The Open Core approaches (with a commercial edition that has all the features, a FLOSS-licensend community edition, and typically a CLA that roughly signs over copyright to the maintainers) gets little love in the community. How would you view "Permissive Core"?
The base software would be, say, MIT licensed, new features are added as (A)GPL, and if a user doesn't like that, they can pay the developers to move that over to the permissive license.

1. First, install Docker.

ok let's see if there's some other tool

They say war on terror but act like war on encryption.
Taking away the very freedoms they claim to protect - again.

Um 15:00 darf ich auf der Wege vorstellen, wie sich IoT-Lösungen auch ohne Abhängigkeit von Cloud-Servern umsetzen lässt. Mehr auf, Stream auf Freue mich, euch dort zu sehen!

I wish chip manufacturers would update their datasheets / technical reference manuals with the errata, instead of only having a separate errata you need to also check...

Nicht vergessen, heute (falls ihr nicht schon Briefwahl gemacht habt). Nicht, dass wir morgen mit zu viel THC aufwachen und uns wundern was alles möglich ist ... Auch wenn das für manche verlockend klingen mag.

A friend of mine with a graphics background and Windows/iOS as platforms is getting started with simple (static) web stuff. I can host files (sftp, and I'd like to keep PasswordAuthentication=no) but have only had people on Linux around for ages. Can you recommend (Free Software) editors and file management tools to get started with?

The Rust Core Team asked for input on the roadmap. Here is my take: I'd like to use const generics to infallibly populate message buffers.

bleh. This moment when everything seems to work, but just a few websites don't.

Until you realize: Those websites only offer legacy IP but not real IP access.

Hab ich hier nicht letztens als -freie und rechtlich einwandfreie Plattform zum Bezug von Filmen und Serien beworben? Ich ziehe es zurück und behaupte das Gegenteil: Ab Montag gibt's die nur noch per Abo.

Endlich eine Bezugsquelle für deutschsprachige Filme gefunden: hat diverse alte und neue österreichische und europäische Serien und Filme in DRM-freiem elektronischem Vertrieb. So etwas habe ich schon seit Jahren gesucht! [edit: Tippfehler im Link, wie peinlich...]

I'd like to set up my btrfs storage server without hard quotas but have some processes (by subvolume, container or user?) to run out of space before others (say, when total reserve drops below 10GiB).
Best I could come up with are bind mounts and a monitor process that remounts ro when limits are hit. That has the downsides of giving "read-only" errors instead of disk-full, not allowing easy deletes and generally being rather hand-crafted.
Are there any existing solutions that solve this?
