DigitalOcean spaces in Amsterdam has been a pain in the ass lately. Can't upload, download, or even list files for about 3TB of data. It's been a week like this. Moving to S3, even though I don't want to.

Best wishes, DO. It's not me, it's you.

Google admitted that contractors can access recordings made by Assistant, after some of its recordings were leaked.

Been absolutely refusing to use any of these devices for precisely this reason. Google and Amazon have both been very quiet on how data is kept and access to it. The recent NHS direct news, teaming up with amazon to give medical advice, horrified me for exactly this.
Both companies have had data breaches, they should be allowed nowhere near NHS services

We provide HTTPS to more than 150M domains. There are many ways to get involved with Let's Encrypt and support a more secure Web! letsencrypt.org/getinvolved/

One thing love about is that unknowning devs think I'm Doctor Strange. This bleeds over into project scoping where I consistently turn 14 points into 2 points. AWS, I've come to bargain.

I read this for the first time today, do you know if this was followed up?

Putting my foot down. No more competitive gaming, including Rocket League.

If I game with friends, co-op only. If I game alone, singleplayer only. I am missing out on some great singleplayer experiences because I’ve been giving in to the “rush” of competitive gaming.

The “rush” isn’t worth it anymore. The hit of dopamine is all it is. It’s just a button I push to create brain chemicals. The other side of it is I always come out of competitive gaming feeling “worse” in my overall well-being. Yikes.

Just a quick reminder from Slipknot in the age of data harvesting:

"We are gathered here today to get it right… repeat after me
I WILL NOT CELEBRATE MEDIOCRITY- I WILL NOT WORSHIP EMPTY
SHELLS
I WILL NOT LISTEN TO WORTHLESS NOISES
I WILL NOT SUBJECT MYSELF TO SELECTED PREDICTABLE CHOICES
MY TIME-MY ATTENTION-MY QUALITY SHOULD NOT BE BOUGHT AND
SOLD
FOR CONVENIENCE’S SAKE… EVER"

Dark forests like email lists and "Slack groups are more forgiving than Liu’s black domains. They’re off-grid, but they aren’t that off-grid. Today’s black domain equivalents might be things like putting phones in freezers, Mastodon, and crypto cold storage. Not many of us are that hardcore with our digital habits yet. But when it comes to showing our true selves online, many of us are more like black domains than we care to admit."

I wonder how much good work is going unfinished because everyone is too exhausted and depressed from the ongoing global political disasters

@mynamesleon Thanks for this, I'd evaluated Clicky some time ago but never followed up. I've added this to my blog, let's see how it works.

Thanks again :)

One of my blog posts made to the official bitbucket blog. Pretty big deal for me since I've never been "published" before :)

I'm back together with Evernote youguys.

It feels like getting back together with an abusive ex, but BoostNote just didn't cut it. I know Evernote still doesn't have search and replace, but who wants to do that anymore, amirite?

Syncthing only works as long as I'm only working on one device at a time, and its really broken on Android. So I'm back with Dropbox.

But I'll always love you Mastodon. You're nice, don't judge me, and don't sell my soul behind my back. And that Facebook chic really has issues.

@mynamesleon I'm using Netlify, not sure if they'll do a page counter thing. It would also be nice if I could just get most visited pages.
