I wish more people would use a on top of or even instead . Hashtags can be muted. Think about it.

#2236 "Is it Christmas?" 

the federated feed from linernotes is *so* much better than mastodon.social. Nobody ever talks about how a small instance of like-minded people generates a fantastic curation of the verse. #mastometa

Malicious Python libraries stealing OpenPGP and SSH keys:

zdnet.com/article/two-maliciou

– Look for python3-dateutil, and jeIlyfish.
– Both modules try to exfiltrate SSH/OpenPGP keys and send them to an IP address.
– This is the third time the PyPI team intervenes to remove typo-squatted malicious Python libraries from the official repository.

I'm seriously considering getting rid of phone contracts/sim card. Preaching about privacy but using the cell network on a daily basis feels hypocritical.

To begin with, I turned off mobile data on my phone for the last 7 days. There's still plenty of stuff to do while traveling offline like consuming RSS, podcasts, videocasts, ebooks, ... I'm missing looking things up online thou. Offline messaging actually feels way less stressful to me.

Hey Fediverse, I need you! Do you know a #PeerTube instance dedicated to technologies or Libre software? Which accepts new accounts?

Today I discovered /dev/full. Let's talk about more not well-know Linux features - en.wikipedia.org/wiki//dev/ful #rr

instead of shopping, how about #HackFriday this year, folks?

find something that needs changin' and do the thing.

I'm very surprised about #CDU coming up with a resolution similar to #PublicMoneyPublicCode and I really wonder what their motives are. Let's hope they're more serious about this than their commitment to counteract global heating.

Also, I think #FSFE is doing a pretty good job here. #PublicCode is a great campaign!

Here's a website dedicated to list plenty of reasons to not use Facebook or any of their malicious services.

If you have a .org domain name: go renew it now. For the full 10 years.

Registration rights for .org were just bought by a private equity firm. And as part of that contract, the price caps were removed.

Anything in .org will get much more expensive, soon.

A ten year renewal will cost you a bit over a hundred bucks. Which is probably less than one year will cost you in the very near future.

What is the preferred init system?

Up-to-now I've been using to manage my across multiple devices, but certainly seems to be worth testing. twit.tv/shows/floss-weekly/epi chezmoi.io/

I just noticed that the Devuan installer let's you choose between SysVInit and OpenRC now. OpenRC is still marked as experimental, but I'm looking forward to it and I hope they're making it the default in the future.

Wow, just had the Pirates/Greens pick through my EU parliament presentation slides with a fine tooth comb in a phone call and try to get me to change what I’m saying so as not to criticise Facebook, etc. WTF?

Never had anyone try to censor what I say before. Of course I will speak my mind verbatim tomorrow and if anything this means I won’t be accepting any future speaking engagements at the EU parliament for these parties.

WTAF?

Thanks to the whole fediverse for the warm welcome for this new XSF (XMPP Standards Foundation) account 👍

Great news everyone. Thanks to previously mentioned infrastructure upgrades #peertube v2 update is now rolling out to hosted instances.

Please let me know if you experience any issues.

If you'd like to read more about changes in v2, you can read the following blog post: https://framablog.org/2019/11/12/peertube-has-worked-twice-as-hard-to-free-your-videos-from-youtube/ or something more technical: https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/releases/tag/v2.0.0

Please note: Due to technical changes made by Peertube v2 there will be some federation incompatibilities with forwarded activities sent by PeerTube instances < v2.0.0, this is due to removal of some legacy code.
