⚠️ PSA to all Germans ⚠️
Starting tomorrow, Telekom and Telefonica will hand over your phone's movement data to the government and other authorities.
It is opt-out, not opt-in!

Some of you clearly need to know about this indie brand https://apocalypticbeautycosmetics.com
They have a collection inspired by poisonous plants called 'The Murderer's Guide to Flower Arranging,' and a highlighter named TS-19, and a collection inspired by Evil Dead 2.
Thanks, Steve Martin. (birdsite link but worth it)
re: Covid19, shopping
(this knowledge makes me feel a lot better, too)
covid-19, meta, mh
Kinda reaching that point where the news about covid-19 is genuinely destroying my mental health, so just want to request, please keep doing the good thing, and using CWs for those posts.
Most people are doing that correctly, so this is not a callout, just a general PSA. Keep up the good work!
Local library just opened the never-ever-done: Signing up for digital cards without showing up in person to present an ID. With ebook and database access. Entirely automated, as nearly as I can tell.
Prior message, when a couple tech geeks ask: "We can't ever do this. People might take advantage."
You're a public library. That's the IDEA.
Yeah, now the poor license-free folks can get cards, assuming the word gets out.
*starts kicking the word into forums*
just a quick reminder ... please CW your covid-19 / social distancing / political / isolation etc posts
this will let folks take breaks by filtering out keywords
If people keep telling me that they're my biggest fans and have pirated all my work, I might as well give up writing tech books.
It's always with "I would buy if you would only X." Sell on this platform, bitcoin, Markdown...
No. You saying you pirate the books is a jerk move to put pressure on me to run my business the way you want. People don't do biz your way because your way doesn't work for them, no matter what you think.
#RIPE80 will be a virtual meeting
I was looking for a video about "Yak Shaving", and after not very long I ended up at an utter classic from Sesame Street
Sesame Street: Bert and Ernie Fish Call
Another milestone for #gameoftrees: There is now a functional 'got clone' command which will appear in the next release.
The initial contribution came from Ori Bernstein and was based on his "git9" implementation for plan9. I reworked parts of this to re-use got library code and add pledge and unveil support.
git:// and ssh:// protocols are working. HTTP and 'got fetch' for incremental updates will appear at some point.
For now, happy cloning over SSH!
