Privacy is not hiding nefarious activity, it's an innate right. A superb article from @danarel on why privacy matters:


Fuck the Supreme Court, fuck the Democrats, and the fuck the Republicans.

Burn it all down.

Looks like Brave Search is going to let users upvote and downvote results.

Something tells me StormFront is going to be upvoted a lot on that search engine.

Brave "calling out" DuckDuckGo for anything is hilarious. Even if they are right, Brave doesn't actually have a history of doing the right thing.

Launched my first site with Hugo today just to try something other than Jekyll.

Okay music loving friends.

I need quality turntable recommendations for someone on a budget. No Victrola or Crosley please.

Privacy community be like

I am ready to move ThinkPrivacy off of Jekyll, but I have not decided what to run it on yet, but also the idea of porting it all over is very daunting. It's heavily written in Liquid but Jekyll is just old and cumbersome at this point.

I think I might need to open an only fans for all the naughty code I write.

Next month, my deal with NameCheap ends and ThinkPrivacy is moved to a new host.

That's all secured and paid for, but I also used my VPS with NameCheap to host my personal Nextcloud server.

Any good cost efficient suggestions or is DigitalOcean really the best bang for your buck still?

On Wednesday I met Teemu Selanne, and then on Thursday, holy shit, I met Brett Hull!
