I have realized that I have not done any proper , it seems like something you have to do here ;)

GNU+Linux user since I was 9 years old, now working with it full time on a ISP, thus fulfilling my childhood dream that basically was "working with The Internet".

Married, having 3 kiddos. Living in Sweden.
Interested in and hardware.

When it comes to politics, I rather not talk or discuss it at all, I dont even want to read about it because that only makes me mad

Turns out that I can do it, but it is hard when the documenation is wrong

Trying to get notifications passed from fail2ban into matrix, but as always I suck at scripting lol

Here you are in the Fediverse.

What do you owe credit to introducing you to the Fediverse/FOSS?

Does anyone know if iPad cameras can be harvested and connected to the Raspberry Pi?

I’m asking particularly about Gen 3 IPads.

Here is a pic for reference.

I made my girlfriend draw this 'bare metal server'
pun. No regrets.

Ad blocker: visually hides ads. Tracker scripts by ad companies still track you.

Tracker blocker (e.g., actually blocks trackers. Blocks ads as a side-effect as 99% of ads are trackers.

The former is like closing your eyes to make the wolf disappear.

Did you know AdBlockPlus makes millions from Google, etc.? They say trackers are β€œacceptable.”

They also say they don’t take money from Google to unblock them, they only take money from Google because they’re unblocked.

(If that sounds like bullshit to you, well…)

#GNU #Guix 1.3.0 is out, woohoo! πŸŽ‰


Lots of good stuff in there: usability improvements, performance improvements, #POWER9 support, and more!


I love the new apps and wallpaper!

I especially appreciate the addition of CryptPad in addition to Etherpad. Great choice.

Jitsi and Mumble are nice additions too!

Love what y’all are doing.

So if Jitsi Meet App is unsatisfactory for video calling, what options do I have? None? Wire seems like the best solution

I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

I think that Tape-backups is a really good option for this actually. Thinking about getting one

Is tape a good way to store backups if you want to protect your data against solar storms?
