Holy smokes.

LibreOffice runs on the Librem 5!

AND IT WORKS.

Saving files, opening files, typing... the UI is a bit cramped (it's a desktop app on a phone)... but hot-diggity! It works!

Is it possible to combine personalization of results and privacy?

Yes! With Masq.

We are developing a tool, currently available in beta, that allows you to store your data locally. We explain everything on our blog #BetterWeb ⬇️

After Amazon, Google & Apple, we learned today that #Microsoft contractors also listen to private conversations without informing users.

Still using Skype? You might want to reconsider..

pro-tip: set your SSID to C:/TEMP/Invoke-Mimikatz.ps1 to set off antiviruses on any windows 10 user who connects to it

I have compiled my official mail provider recommendations. With any provider, you must always use your own domain.

## migadu.com

Good: Down to earth. Unlimited domains, storage, etc. Full marks for philosophical, ethical, and technical merits.

Bad: Difficult to set up. UI is a bit confusing. Advertises itself in your signature in the free plan. Apparently blocks VPN and Tor users (I have reached out to them about this).

Note: Was unable to evaluate their webmail

## mailbox.org

Good: excellent PGP support and good on other security fronts as well

Bad: requires google captcha, does not handle plaintext as well as I'd like, german leaks through into the english interface sometimes, too scatterbrained

## runbox.com

Good: Goes above and beyond in support for various standards and protocols, handles plaintext email very well. Lots of good options for account security.

Bad: rough UI

## summary

migadu is hard to set up but is the best all-around offering. If you're security concious, mailbox.org has the best PGP support and good all-around security; runbox.com has good account security options but no built-in PGP support.

Evaluated but not recommended: disroot, fastmail, posteo.de, poste.io, protonmail, tutanota, riseup, cock.li, teknik, megacorp mail (gmail, outlook, etc)

Pleased to announce, that we have changed our banner for social.linux.pizza instead of the old one. The new one is classified as "art".

This was crafted together by @ohyran , so if you are in any need of a illustrator/designer - you know who you should talk to :)

What the fuck is wrong with you? mastodon.social/@dansup/102391

Why are you pressuring me to block a instance from the 14k people here, when you can do that yourself?

Spending the evening with a blindfold on. So far it seems my WeeChat and vim plugins for espeak are working pretty well. Still need to work on something for aerc and I've realized that I should write an interactive git diff listener.

in the final episode of HBO's chilling miniseries "Cloudflare", a distributed systems engineer explains to the investigative committee that although Cloudflare recklessly sought a market dominance that made the web brittle and fragile, it was in fact the broader capitalist context that made it wise for them to do so. only the telecom lobby understands the gravity of the accusation, and endeavors successfully to blackball the engineer as a hopeless political radical.

Scary, to put it mildly.

"Motherboard has traced T-Mobile phone location data sold on the black market to a specific triple homicide in Dallas, where two bounty hunters killed someone they were tracking in broad daylight in a car dealership. All three died in the shootout"

@niconiconi actually, that's very very clever. (of #Google) Nefariously clever…

To sell a tracking feature as an anti-bot feature is the best thing they could do!

Tracking blockers can't block it, because that would break the Captcha functionality.
And web admins will happilly embed it on any, any site just to "protect" their login from bots – exposing all their users, but they don't care, they never cared… #nogoogle #recaptcha #tracking

If you've never seen a man ride six scooters at once, well now you have. You're welcome.

Also, I believe he's collecting them to charge them.
