Anything could go wrong at any time but for now my Arch install is running pretty smoothly. It’s nice to be back 🐧

I'll give anyone six months of free sr.ht credit if they empty out their github account after signing up 😉

If you have any VPSes on Digital Ocean maybe you should consider moving them to Linode or similar competitors

You should follow Distributed Denial of Secrets on here. They've been draconianly suspended from Twitter for publishing BlueLeaks, an 270gb archive of leaked police documents @ddosecrets

Just joined. Anyone have recommendations for tech or music accounts to follow?

Do NOT talk to cops. The only things you say to a cop are:

1. Am I free to go? (Leave if yes)
2. I am exercising my right to silence and to speak to a lawyer.

Then you shut the fuck up.

Hi Aral, Twitter have locked my account until I prove I'm not a bot by giving them my phone number, after 12 years!

I didn't give in to Facebook when they tried to coerce me to give up my rights under GDPR and I'm not inclined to do so with Twitter, so here I am again. Anyway, if you want to continue our chat today i can't do it on that Twitter account. safepress is still alive, and for now I'll poke around here a bit more as I look for a replacement current affairs community.

Cheers, Mark
