I'm new here. I'm anti tech cis dudes that refuse to reflect and undo toxic behavior, and like to call those comrades (if they want so) that do.

my gender: human
my pronoun: it/they/them/human
my interest for being here:
promoting and sharing thoughts about: secure communication, that puts the user and their usecases into the center of considerations.
I'm here for learning, and tryn to take what I learned to contribute back to freesoftware projects such as .

I am pleased to announce that my Chinese-based, #privacy-driven, anti-#forensics Linux distro: #antiS, is release to 2020.01.0. Many important features! Delicately brewed packages. :slackware: —>

I hope the e2e encryption of DMs that will be introduced to , will not invent again another e2e encrypted messaging thing.

I hope it will federate with one already existing e2e encryption messaging thing.

Personally I would like it to be but I don't expect this to happen.
afaik xmpp is integrated in , , , .

Why does the retoot produce an identical copy op a post that can not be removed by the creator?
I get that this is a twitter-alternative but we might wanna question that feature?

- Censorship is more difficult (but the fediverse is already designed to prevent that)

- Misinformation keeps getting retooted and the creator can not stop it
- Mistakes similarly continue to do extra harm long after the creator learned not to do that thing

just some food for thoughts:

You've heard about the PinePhone?
"An Open Source Smart Phone Supported by All Major Linux Phone Projects"

It can also run on debian based distros.

Two examples:

Bringing Tails or a Tails like distro into the mobile world, that's a good dream hoping to become reality.

Hardware question. Please boost! 

I'm still looking for a free software analog telephone adapter (ATA).

I tried to find a Dragino DT01 because it seemed to fit the bill, but they're out of stock everywhere.

The MeshPotato "MP02 Phone" seems to be the same thing, basically.

Does anyone know of a similar device that's actually still available?

Hardware question. Please boost! 

Can anyone tell me whether #OSMC might run on a #BeagleBone Enhanced? Pros & cons?


@jeff I noticed you boosted a post from

Collaboration instead of competition. Genuine interest instead of a way to get more social points.

@selea @syster
I hear this Matrix (Foundation) is not New Vector all the time. This is a marketing claim, but reality looks different:
- homeserver as well as other core infrastructure is run by New Vector.
- Matrix Foundation basically only consists of New Vector employees and investors.
- Matrix Foundation website ( heavily advertises New Vector software and services. e.g. Automattic investing into New Vector is also advertised on the blog

Hey #dataviz and #dataanalysis peeps!

I'm currently adding a data editor into my javascriptless webframework, but I'm pretty inexperienced with statistical analysis.

So, I want to know: What are the most used/useful data analysis actions according to your opinion?

Ideally I'd be looking for the 20% of functionality to implement that covers 80% of use-cases. :P

Especially interested to hear what people experienced in #pandas have to say on this.

Also cc @rstats

Tails Server should provide a user-friendly way to start onion services that facilitate group collaboration, communication, and data sharing.

Would you like to see #I2P being reintroduced to Tails?
issue tracker about it:

What is @i2p?
It "is an anonymous network layer that allows for censorship-resistant, peer to peer communication. Anonymous connections are achieved by encrypting the user's traffic, and sending it through a volunteer-run network... distributed around the world

Why was it removed from Tails?
"due to our failure of finding someone interested in
maintaining it in Tails"

the irony of linking to , while criticizing the usage of :
gitlab also uses cloudflare.

It's a mess...

That makes privacy invasive and difficult to use for anyone that cares about privacy.
The default behavior is: sending all sorts of metadata to cloudflare also when you self host it.

I believe one shouldn't expect to much from a company, that used google analytics for their webchat at
