Oh #freebsd 13.0-release has been released. I haven’t decided which is to install on my another spare laptop. Another choice is #openbsd.

Facebook created this problem, but that doesn’t make the company qualified to fix it, nor does it mean we should trust them to do so.

If you're in Russia and received a letter that, oh, by the way, tomorrow all your Zoom accounts are blocked -- you might realize that yes, there is a benefit to #selfhosting #digitalsovereignty

Err.. the #government persuades / urges us to install a mobile app which teaches the people to prevent users online/telecom #fraud.

Don’t you believe, it might be a mass #surveillance #malware/#spyware, uploading all your communications to the authority. 😆. #privacy

Delete Chrome. Now.

Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.

They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.

If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.


With a groundbreaking resolution, #Dortmund has committed itself to the use of #FreeSoftware. An overwhelming, cross-faction majority of the city council has paved the way for "Public Money? #PublicCode!”


Obviously this must be one of the biggest scandals of Big Tech companies.

Your data might have been already leaked from other services and sold somewhere; it could just be not known yet until it would eventually be disclosed like this case on Facebook.

... buuuuuut it worked! RAM usage is at about 140MB with a busy tmux session. Not sure if I can keep going forward, but it's definitely doable!

Surveillance isn’t normal, and it isn’t okay. Students are right to feel concerned and to want to speak up about their privacy.

It is possible to clone your hard drive as a backup before conducting something critical on your machine.

dd if=/dev/... of=/dev/... bs=1m status=progress
gpart recover ...
gpart resize -i 1 ...

On UFS filesystem, don't forget to run growfs if you have replaced the hard drive with a larger one.

BTW, my #IPFS bot (#csobot) works quite well. The last news article on NYtimes was transformed to a page on IPFS by the bot. I can read it inside the GFW. 😏
