Docker is an attack on computing freedom 

Datenschutz dürfe keine Rücksicht auf Kriminelle nehmen, lese ich. Meine Antwort: Erstens verlieren auch Straftäter (und deren Angehörige) nicht ihre Grundrechte. Zweitens ist damit keine ausufernde Überwachung von weitläufig Verdächtigen(!) oder(!) aller BürgerInnen begründbar

Wer schon immer mal wie in den 1980-Jahren über ein Terminal an einem IBM-Mainframe arbeiten wollte, kann das in der Ausstellung von auf dem #VCFB2019 ausprobieren.

Hat mir jemand Timbuktu (Fernsteuersoftware von Farallon/Netopia) für Windows?

Eine nachhaltige, tiefgreifende Verkehrswende – weg vom Auto, jetzt! Stoppt den rückwärtsgewandten Kohle„abbau“ sofort.

10 years ago I started using ad blockers because I thought ads were annoying. Now I think that's the _least_ important reason to use them.

I think we should call them "browser firewalls." That more accurately describes their purpose.

Für Cray-Fans hält @stiefkind auf dem #VCFB2019 den fünften Teil seiner Vortragsreihe zum Leben und Werk von Seymour Cray. Die vorherigen Teile könnt ihr auf sehen. #vintagecomputing

I've been building Flóðgátt, a replacement streaming API server for Mastodon. The goal is to cut RAM usage and make hosting an instance that much cheaper.

So far, we've cut RAM for the streaming server of an empty instance by ~94.2%

The next task is to make sure that lower RAM usage can scale without other issues (e.g., CPU).

To do that, I need a test server with enough connections to see how Flóðgátt performs under load.

That's where y'all come in: can you please follow @codesections ?

Also found my old modem while looking for that side rule.

It really doesn't take long for Hongkongers to turn two students too embarrassed to hold hands at a protest into a hilarious meme

#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.

It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.

It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.

It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.

It's not how e-mail should work.

Consider dropping GMail.

Things I liked about 80's/90's computing:
- Total control over my hardware
- Software that worked with me, not against me
- Superior aesthetics (yeah I said it :3 )
- Overall sense of promise and freedom

Things I like about computing today:
- Easy and open access to knowledge
- Insane amounts of storage
- The sheer computing POWERRRR

Now if only we could make these attributes come together instead of being period exclusive. :blobthinking:
