Fedi is the most strange thing in the world.

On normal social media, you write a message and people just ignore it forever.

Here, you write a message, it stays ignored for 1 or 2 years, and then all of a sudden, for no reason, with no explanation, someone finds it somehow, boosts it, and it gets 200 likes and 120 boosts.

What the fuck.

I'm sure someone will boost this message in 2021 or 2022.

In sweden private newspapers are threatening to sue public service because they are to good at delivering written news online... It is truely a horrific society where people can learn about what is happening in the world without paying for it 😩


I work at a ccTLD (.IS), and lately we are seeing a *lot* of new accounts immediately registering multiple domains that all had been registered in the past. I suspect we're not the only ccTLD that sees this.

We know of at least two instances of this being used to take over social media accounts that had e-mails in expired domains set as backup e-mail addresses.

This seems to be organized and well-resourced.

Please double-check you don't use e-mails in any expired domains anywhere.


Scrum master is a rubbish job title. They should be simply referred to as 'nerd shepherds'

Automatische Lokalisierung in a Nutshell 😂 Wurde denn #Truthahn als eigenständiges Land ausgerufen ?

@neil There are many Firefox forks which would address these issues such as LibreWolf, GNU Icecat, etc.

But the main issue that one needs to consider is the monopoly of Chromium in the web space. Ditching Firefox for a Chromium-based browser only makes this worse, regardless of the one you choose.

The Chromium monopoly gives Google near-total control over web standards, decreases incentives for cross-browser support (e.g, Skype only works on Chromium-based browsers) and would ultimately leave Google as your last-man-standing with ultimate reign over the web. Not really an ideal scenario, is it?

While these Chromium-based browsers may be ungoogled, hardened and have nice slick UIs etc., switching to them will result in a huge net-loss for everyone in the long term.

Mein ISP (Vodafone) blockt torproject.org und seine Mirrors. :(

Warum? Ist das Tor Projekt illegal? Ich denke nicht. Was gibt einem ISP das Recht willkürlich Domains zu sperren? Was übersehe ich hier?

@kuketzblog Hallo Mike, könntest du dir irgendwann mal die Roborock App von Xaomi anschauen? Leider sind die Markt(mit-)führer was Staubsaugerroboter angeht und ich frage mich wie nervös ich bei der App und dem Staubsauger in Heimnetz werden sollte...

PS: Ggf. funktioniert der Staubsauger in einem seperaten VLAN ohne Internetzugriff?

Vielen Dank in jedem Fall für deine Arbeit!
