Hm.. I noticed the server file size for my 2 user mastodon instance already exceeds 9GB.
Do old toots and their file attachements get deleted after a certain time? Do you have advices for storage optimizations?

As predicted by many commentators, #CambridgeAnalytica is going to escape punishment because all the people involved simply formed a new (but legally separate) company:

bloomberg.com/news/articles/20

By going after companies and not people, it is very difficult to enforce privacy laws.

This is a familiar pattern that commercial con artists use: run up liabilities with one company, then transfer assets to a new company. If they get caught, they simply do it again, and it's legal.

This is new to me, people have been abusing ad-blocking extensions to achieve political goals and censor some websites 馃槚 github.com/uBlockOrigin/uBlock #censorship #adblocking

Heute Abend gehen wir in die Hamburger Staatsoper. Ich bin gespannt. Es ist meine erste Oper.
Eine Bekannte ist dort S盲ngerin und hatte Tickets f眉r 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鈥檚 privacy

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 馃槺

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

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:

twitter.com/ctavan/status/1044

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:

F眉r alle die es interessiert, in mailcow wird in den kommenden Tagen die Mailverschl眉sselung integriert
Dann liegen die Mails verschl眉sselt auf dem Server. Der admin hat kein Zugriff die Schl眉ssel werden durch das Benutzerpasswort verschl眉sselt
Tja dann verlasse ich wohl @Tutanota wieder und zur眉ck zu meinem Server :)
