Did you know that you can support this instance economically?

I have set up a liberapay acount so users can support the Linux.Pizza project.
More donors = more services and we will be able to spend more time on it.

Linux.Pizza is 95% financed by our own pocket, which means that the fate of this instance and services boils down to one person only (basically a single point of failure).

I hope that we can build a community together where everyone's input is valuable!

Hi! I'm new to Mastodon.Just wanted to say hello to everyone - especially those local to me! Peace.

So i happened to look at journalctl on my VPS today and noticed a boob trying to ssh in as root...good thing firstly i don't permit password for root login's. His IP is also now being blocked...but he's still trying. Over 600 times in the last hour

Stop using #adobe products as soon as as you can. The quality of product has no relevance when anytime you may stopped from accessing it. (As it is happening in #Venezuela right now)

Stop using non-free software. You will face its evilness soon or late. Start migration to #FreeSoftware asap

@hugo But if they did that how could they accidentally use it for advertising purposes? You know, accidentally **cough** on purpose **cough** .

@mike that and they shouldn't have been using phone numbers for account security to begin with, given how easy it is to port someone's phone number with a little bit of personal information. Using TOTP or other alternatives is far better 🔐

And yes, for those who still think online voting is "inevitable", I offer this: xkcd.com/2030/

Yet another reason it's a good idea to move on from Twitter (and Facebook) to a decentralized option like Mastodon.

"Twitter took phone numbers users gave for account security and used them to target ads"

📚 I'm making a big high quality English Pepper&Carrot comic book using only FLOSS from scratch! Here is a first blog post report (a bit technical) of my research and test with #Krita, #Inkscape and #Scribus on #Kubuntu 18.04.2 LTS: davidrevoy.com/article735/

I missed RSS feeds. Please let me know if you have more suggestions for good news, pop culture, tech sites, &c.!

macchanger is the tool I use, if you want to check it out!

I randomise mine upon boot, and if I ever feel the urge to change it, macchanger makes it pretty easy to do.
