Heute Abend gehen wir in die Hamburger Staatsoper. Ich bin gespannt. Es ist meine erste Oper.
Eine Bekannte ist dort Sängerin und hatte Tickets für uns.

We do need to get away from the belief that all data collection is inherently bad because it is not. It is possible to collect metrics for software improvement while still respecting the user’s privacy

To survive, FOSS has to steal my data like the adults

Boredom is valuable, it is a state that drives creativity. When your brain feels bored, but doesn't have the outlet of games, TV, or social media, it will seek other ways to relieve it, which often results in making cool things or thinking up some ideas.

The craving to refresh reddit or RSS has value, it is the same sensation that drives you to do cool stuff. By not refreshing the page, you can "save up" the boredom/dopamine, fuel it into the motivation to do useful things.

Do you use adblockers? And if yes, which one?

Good news - yesterday i managed to implement a federated comments! We're getting really close to first official release 😱

Meanwhile - did you know you can have a real impact on development process (without having the programming skills) by joining our discourse forum and taking the floor? socialhub.network/c/projects/p

I've uploaded my 50th video to my #PeerTube account @chriswere. My overall experience with PeerTube has been overwhelmingly positive.

There have been one or two hiccups along the way, it's new tech, still in beta and even taking all that into account I think it's all pretty wonderful.

A very special thanks to @Curator for helping me get set up, thanks to @ChrisTalleras for giving me the push I needed to get on there and of course thank you so much to @Chocobozzz for all your amazing work.

Unpopular opinion:

I actually really like gnome.

Started out with KDE cause tons of people like it. but after watching @ChrisWere POP!_OS video i just loved the aesthetics of it. Having everything super minimal then pressing the super key have everything pop up

The latest version of #Chrome doesn't delete Google cookies even when you ask it to delete all cookies:

It also does some dodgy stuff with logging people into Google:

Chrome is made by Google, who make vast amounts of money from invading people's privacy.

The best easy-to-use alternative right now is probably Firefox:

Für alle die es interessiert, in mailcow wird in den kommenden Tagen die Mailverschlüsselung integriert
Dann liegen die Mails verschlüsselt auf dem Server. Der admin hat kein Zugriff die Schlüssel werden durch das Benutzerpasswort verschlüsselt
Tja dann verlasse ich wohl @Tutanota wieder und zurück zu meinem Server :)

Google has started signing people in to Chrome without asking if they sign in to any google site like gmail or YouTube.

That leaves you one click away from uploading all your browsing data to Google.
