Did I tell you that I did an unboxing (sort of) of the Pinebook Pro a couple of weeks back? I have it on my peertube instance if you want to check it out :)


@aktivismoEstasMiaLuo You claimed that CF violates privacy, but you haven't provided any evidence that they're collecting and sharing private data.

Net neutrality isn't very relevant since CF isn't a consumer ISP. You haven't explained how CF โ€œworks againstโ€ net neutrality.

Complaining that CF โ€œcentralizesโ€ the web is basically the same as complaining that they're doing their job too well and have too many customers.


I am done with trying to get client certificates to work the way I expect them to work in #Perl. Does anybody know how? I use Net::Server with proto => 'ssl' and all of that, and I can connect to it using my client. What I cannot do is use a client certificate with a common name set and retrieve that on the server side. It's either not there, or if I enable client cert verification, I can no longer connect with my self signed cert. How does this work?

So suddenly thereโ€™s a lot of attention around email and itโ€™s exposing how many people in the web community still use Gmail. Like actually trust all your personal information and communication (and that of your potentially marginalised or vulnerable contacts) with Google. ๐Ÿคฎ

There are a lot of hard problems and lack of alternatives when it comes to rights-respecting technology. But email (as imperfect as it is) has a fair few affordable alternative providers. Small change, big difference.

At first I was thinking about replacing one of my Tutanota accounts, now I'm considering deleting both of mine.
What is the fun of doing email if I can't use my favorite client?


@kensanata @Gina looking at the distribution of wealth in the world is enough to turn anyone communist.

The eight richest people on the planet have as much money as the poorest 3.5 BILLION of the Earth's population. So eight people own half the planet, basically.

Not eighty. Eight.

Jeff Bezos' personal wealth rivals that of many countries entire economies. That's *so* much money.

The more I think of it - the more being conservative does not really make sense

Want to liberate yourself from the clutches of Google / Youtube?

Support the development of PeerTube, if possible, as the push for version 3 functionality is ongoing!

Here's the basic roadmap plan of funding points:

Global search


Plugins & Playlists
(Aug. - Sept.)

Live streaming
(Oct. - Nov.)

Let's make this happen ๐Ÿ‘

#Peertube #funding #deleteYouTube #deleteGoogle #roadmap #Framasoft #streaming #live

The Blender #peertube instance has been updated to the latest version which now means it federates again, yeah!!



THIS IS THE SMALLEST THING WE CAN DO to show them that they should support alternatives!

There's been a much more activity in the comments, and follows. YOU'RE AWESOME!

Promote it, boost the videos so others know it exists, and let them know on official channels (, etc.) that it's a great idea.


@selea Nice to be here, hopefully I can think of some fun BGP stuff (and other things) that I can share :)

@selea I just had to move two cupboards outside.

Hell confirmed in Prague.

+20 on radiation damage, because I can cook in the shade as well.

Inside - comfy 20 degrees
Serverroom - Comfy 20 degrees
Outside - Hell

Well I tried - it basically creates a local repo of all your AUR packages and also all your --devel packages. It will take as long as the amount of AUR & --devel packages you have to set the repo up. The controls are intuitive but I use only the very essential AUR & --devel packages so it's not of a great deal of use to me, but if you use a lot of AUR & --devel packages then this is for you. Very easy to set up, intuitive controls etc. Worth a look:

Thanks @admin for accepting my request to join the instance, I'm looking forward to exploring the Mastodon part of the web!

Sweden, donations and FOSS 

People of #Sweden, are there any restrictions on collecting donations as an #foss developer? Something similar to what is described in this thread about Finland?

> So this means that if you see a donation/sponsorship button on a software project where the money goes to a Finnish person, it is illegal (unless they have obtained a permit, which is highly unlikely).

I had assumed that it would fall under "hobby" / "bisyssla". Hope it is so.

Why the Fediverse is significant, beside privacy 

Because big corporations are not forever.

Say about them what you will, but there IS a value in social media, they do satisfy the need, they do scratch that ancient itch of human beings to hear each other and be heard. They do it quite perversely, as a side-effect to filling their shareholders' pockets, but still, as a matter of fact.

The corporations though, do close down for all kinds of reasons.

There was a time before Twitter. Someday Facebook will disappear. Someday, YouTube will go dark.

The Fediverse, in this sense, is a toolkit, that will allow people to rebuild the Internet as we know and love it today in the future, when most companies have gone extinct.

The Internet is not a thing that "just is", it's "what people do". The Fediverse recognizes and embraces this fluid, dynamic nature: every now and then there's new servers that pop up and old that ones go down. It's not really a big deal around here. And it's... beautiful?

Quick question. On a windows machine I have 20 users. They all have the same apps and the same configuration in those apps. I know how to save all apps to public so they can be accessed but how do I make it so they are already configured. This could save me days of time. I understand I could image with WDS but I'm not wanting to do that with these. Thanks
