#2236 "Is it Christmas?"
We've tested it on 30 different days and it hasn't gotten one wrong yet.
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:
– 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?
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.
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.
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.
Also check my other accounts (see choices).
