Quick walk in my "userland" showed me that my IDS (jaybirds) are up and running. They still need some adjusting to not alert everyone when I walk around but that´s something I can live with. :flan_smile:

Good morning netizens. :)
Today the pidgeons decided to build an "AccessPoint" outside my window. They truly support my decentralization efforts. :flan_cheer:​ Maybe I can pay for their service with some corn.

also wish I could screenshot from Netflix but millions of hours of high-powered computer science engineer-time has gone into today's browsers to prevent us from doing that

Does anyone want to do anything with these domains? If anyone is interested tell me your thoughts. If it is interesting I will be willing to entertain the idea of me running a server for it. I will even help just don't have the cycles to do anything myself. I would even sell for cost. I bought them while back with the intention of doing something with them.I found I have enough projects.

Currently, there are two large problems in IT:
- hospital networks security
- workable videoconferencing for more than 8 people

Remember the time when we thought cache invalidation is hard? Quaint.

Does anyone have suggestions for an online software for organizing mutual aid in a neighborhood? I'm thinking something like forum software, less ephemeral than things like Mastodon, and with email digest functionality. I'd prefer to avoid proprietary stuff like google groups, and definitely not locked into a certain social network e.g. Facebook.

Boosts welcome

People are realizing that their new "work from home" venture capitalist tools are not privacy friendly.

In my remote work guide, I've included ethical alternatives to Slack, Zoom etc. These are Matrix, Riot, Jitsi, Taiga, Basecamp.

I've used Jitsi Meet and Matrix/Riot extensively for video calls over the last few weeks and they are great alternatives 👇

Aktuell suchen Schulen fieberhaft nach Lösungen, wie sie mit ihren Schülern während der Coronakrise in Kontakt bleiben können. Viele Schulen und Verantwortliche wählen nun leider Lösungen und Dienste, die ihre Nutzer mit Google, Facebook und Co. tracken bzw. von der eigenen Infrastruktur abhängig machen.

Dezentraler Unterricht geht aber auch datenschutzfreundlich und ohne Lock-in-Effekt.

"Okay, here's the scenario. You are a crew member on a starship."
"Cool."
"Space travel is slow, you'll be stuck with your crewmates a long time."
"So we must get along."
"Yes. Communicate, listen, share limited resources."
"I can do that. What's the starship called?"
"Earth."

@mwlucas You know what this message reminds me of?
"Info: External command error: Bad operator (INTEGER): At line 73 in
/usr/share/mibs/ietf/SNMPv2-PDU"
I read that book which name should only be whispered and oh boy, my greatest respect for writing it. The amount of suffering manifested itself in the lines for sure.

I'm ofcourse building my own highly-modularised browser engine in Haskell, currently voice/audio for I/O. Where I'm currently implementing features to help me avoid the temptation of scope creep.

Feel free to reuse HURL and/or Haskell Stylist in your own projects! And if you contribute to "Rhapsode", I have some interesting opportunities for you!

This would be a good thing to do during self-isolation: Improve privacy, let CPUs conserve electricity, & stop pushing people to buy new hardware.
