Privacy, like security, requires technology that can be examined, reviewed, studied, vetted and modified. It's also a personal consideration

We need a full free and open technology stack: software, devices, data and society

is everything you think necessary for your personal freedom, privacy and security ( even things we have not yet created )

Another view from the side door. Basically everything that's fabric here (mattress covers, ceiling panels, curtains, window covers) I sewed myself and all of the wooden furniture I built myself. 7/10

Episode 51: #vanlife...?

We walk through our (well, @mlemweb's) renovation of a cargo van into a campervan.

This is a very crafty episode, but we do work in a few analogies to some FOSS (and open hardware) things!

sed allows you to use other characters to demarcate sections in a s/// command. Useful when you don't want to use '/' you can use a comma or nearly any ASCII character. Check this one out:

New feature soon in Krita: Lambert Shading.🔆

It's a blending mode made by Despair for better shading using a single layer. I gave feedback to adjust the blending mode during its development. The blending mode is really versatile as you'll see in this quick demo I painted:

You may have seen a lot of accounts on here use a rainbow pentagon logo that looks like this :fediverse:

This is the Fediverse logo, or at least the most widely-used one.

The Fediverse doesn't have any central authority so there will never be an official logo. However, many unofficial suggestions have been published, and the one which has gained the widest acceptance is this one:

Its creator released it into the Public Domain, so anyone can use it in any way they see fit. It's sort of like the flag of the Fedi, used to represent it in discussions, events, sites and apps.

We should get images up to a few *seconds* before impact! For this mission, a loss of signal is a GOOD thing 😉

If you're posting a public post on the Fediverse, it will be visible to anyone, even people who aren't on the Fediverse. Every account has a public profile page, which lists all the public posts made by that account.

If you want to keep your Fedi posts off search engines, the best way to do this is to use a non-public visibility setting such as followers-only or mentioned/direct. Search engines cannot see posts with such visibility settings.

On Mastodon, you can also go to Preferences > Other > Opt Out Of Search Engine Indexing, tick the box then click Save Changes. In theory this setting also stops your public posts from ending up in search engines, but in reality it's up to search engines whether they respect your request.

PixelFed has a similar option in Settings > Privacy.

Pretty damn please, if you publish something, anything, on a blog, site, whatever... I beg of you, make sure that publishing date is stated somewhere!

For example: how am I supposed to know, for example, if this is a freshly added new functionality, an old and since deprecated tech preview, or something in between?

Seriously, just display the damn publishing date, people!

I finished a 5 part series on how to run an e-mail server in 2022 with all the DKIM/SPF/DMARC stuff working. It's not a simple HOWTO series, but it does explain all the moving parts. So if you're interested to learn a bit about modern e-mail - you're welcome! Starts here:
