Finally: Alpine Linux, i3wm and a physical keyboard on a mobile phone. The keyboard may be a bit worn down, but the n900 is still going strong like it’s 2009 💖

last question:

if Pleroma were to use a different federation protocol for federating between Pleroma instances, which was very well documented, and supported real security features, and real nomadic identity (backed by a DHT + sharding), would you be willing to accept only interoperability with AP networks for cases where an activity is representable over AP?

@DashEquals I'll pretty much just be echoing a lot of the other replies lol.

Just because it's public doesn't mean it should stick around forever. There's a reason why the "right to be forgotten" has its own Wikipedia page. There's a specific section of Article 17 that pertains to this and it's officially called the "Right to erasure" and unofficially called the "right to be forgotten". It allows people to erase public information about themselves.

Personally, I consider and similar organisations a threat. It may have changed now (I'll know for sure when I hear back about my exclusion request) but, in the past, they would archive any site they came across without the owner's permission *even if* they disallowed it in their robots.txt. Yes, you can go through the trouble I have and block a list of IP addresses they own but robots.txt is supposed to be an understood standard. "If I don't want you accessing my site, I will put an exclusion here. Please respect that and don't." The fact that they ignore it, quite frankly, pisses me off and I regard them as a malicious entity because of it.

OSINT specialists love the Wayback Machine because they can look at a site and see historical information about it that the author may not be aware is public. Attackers use this all the time and it is dangerous.

If the Wayback Machine was opt-in and I could choose when snapshots were taken, I would be all for it. I would love to have a tool like that. As it is, it's not and I take preventative measures to block them.

I wasn't sure my tactics would actually work until I checked a few minutes ago. It's good to know they do.

I am not happy that they archived my old site

As well as my old Fosstodon account and GitHub page. I doubt they'll remove those but I'll see what I can do anyway.

Damn. No python implementation for the project yet and nothing officially planned due to lack of funding AFAICT. These new decentralisation projects are really lacking €€€

I really ought to write a blogpost about the E programming language, and why it's *THE MOST* important programming language you probably haven't studied if you're interested in secure distributed/decentralized systems.

Time and time again, I run into some challenge and it turns out that the answer is already written out somewhere on two decades ago.

Already €30,000 worth of donations! Only €5,000 more to reach the second milestone! 💖 💖 💖 If we succeed, we commit to do everything we can to provide you with a fully federated #Mobilizon around fall 2019. #fediverse #ActivityPub #JoinMobilizon

OK, let's try to make this happen (again).

I wrote a report of the interesting @rra + @fcr conversation on federated #networks and #mastodon that took place during the #urgentpublishing conference (Arnhem).

To this day, I have not had one mobile device that was as resilient as the original Walkman.
It had an outer shell of all aluminium, like 3mm thick or something and survived tumbling down an actual granit mountain with only loss of some paint.

Oh, it also had dual headphone jacks, because sharing is caring... and a dubbing button in orange for when you were listening to music with a friend, but just had to comment on the music or something else while you were listening, so you could just press it and speak into the microphone.

Also, it didn't just only have amazing stereo, but one volume-slider for each channel!

Only mobile device as sturdy as that I've had was the Ericsson 688 phone, which I sometimes actually used as a hammer against nails into walls.
