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. 😏

Thanks to all the organisers, speakers, and participants at #Libreplanet. Had great discussions there today with many people active for #softwarefreedom

Everything has been built on Ports Collection without pre-compiled packages. Neither malware nor bloatware should exist on my machine, which is a nice feeling.

Rebuilding binaries with Ports Collection on FreeBSD fixed the issue which probably I caused by myself due to a wrong configuration that suspending stopped working after the machine had suspended once. It works even better 😀

Found cloning your drive on UNIX-like system was quite easy with dd. Running `dd if=/dev/ada... of=/dev/ada... bs=1m status=progress` to back up my FreeBSD system.

Schöne gut verständliche Erklärung (#Nespresso vs #Cappuccino) warum offene Standards und #Föderation bei Messanger und auch sonst wichtig ist vom Republik Magazin:

Original tweet :

Just got redhat running in a vm on #freebsd in #bhyve !!! Not the first time I've run a vm in bhyve, but every time I do it just makes me so excited and leaves me in awe. I couldn't write something like this in a million years.

Hopefully I would let some of the members replace Windows / macOS with a operating system like Debian GNU/Linux, asking "seriously, why do you need a proprietary operating system even though you could run one on a virtual machine in case of emergency?"

After almost a year of development, I am happy to announce #FediDB will be launching to the public this weekend!

Building ActivityPub applications will be much easier with FediDB.

Special thanks to @NGIZero for funding development of this project!
