@jalcine I tried using DDG a couple of times, but the search results never pleased me and the amount of using !g really annoyed me that I went back to Google. Now using Startpage for a few weeks and it's awesome. Google results without the tracking and personalisation.

In light of Australia's anti-encryption, this is an important message from @signalapp@twitter.com

It's not enough for services to state they decline to add a backdoor. It should be practically impossible to do so. Based on their architecture and verifiable by public source code. #aaBill

@schlink I really like Bitwarden. It's open source too.

But documentation is also imported. I keep a file where I note all packages etc I changed on my Ubuntu setup, so that I can install and configure everything the same way when I reinstall or setup a new PC.

I love automation. Although it takes time to automate things in the beginning (like today writing a user.js file for Firefox) it helps simplifying things. When I setup Firefox on a new PC, I don't have to remember all the things I changed in about:config (and probably forget most of it), but just copy the file. I also do the same with my Hosting setup where I use docker-compose to keep all configurations.

Anyone else got a 91 y.o grandma who sends you emails from their Debian-based Linux laptop? 🤗 #hacktheplanet

People end up thinking there's nothing outside the walled garden, that Google or Facebook *are* the Internet.

@devinius @clerie Ich glaub nicht so ganz an hybride Apps, man merkt immer dass sie hybrid sind (fühlen sich einfach nicht nativ an). Und dann kann man ja auch gleich den Browser benutzen. Und Java wird ja auch im Enterprise Umfeld stark genutzt. Ich hoffe dass sich da kotlin in den nächsten Jahren auch durchsetzen wird.

@kev But than you need to change the mail on the site notice too, otherwise you aren't reachable

@kev I just mean by publishing your email address (doesn't matter if plus address or any else) and you can't block that email, you'll probably get more spam.

@kev The problem is when you have to put your mail address in a site notice for legal reasons.
But Fastmail has a really good spam scanner. You can also set a max spam score to keep and it'll reject all mails with a higher one.

@Wolf480pl @NerdResa Good reminder to self teach myself IPv6. My server is only available via v4 and all my tries without knowledge failed. 🙈

@devinius Seitdem ich meine Blogs auf statische Seiten mit Hugo hab ich das Problem nicht mehr 😋 Aber wieso nimmst du nicht den Container-Namen statt der IP?

If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on webcompat.com/ when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.

When browsers lose market share, they fall into the "compatibility death spiral." Sites don't bother to test, they break, and users flee to the browser that "just works." Mozilla is fighting this battle every day, and it just got harder.
