@fdroidorg hi, is there a way to see if Antennapod 2.0 is being built for f-droid and if the build is failing?

Those who oppose #EndToEndEncryption oppose privacy, human rights, personhood, and democracy.

They are not your friends.

They are the ones who want what the Stasi never had: eyes and ears on everyone, all the time.

You lose this battle, you lose it all.

Do you know a (group of) student(s) who wants to work with me on legal tech? masterthesis.cms.chalmers.se/c

I'm working in a company trying to understand legal court cases better to help the world fight less and settle more.

On to-day's walk I discovered an abandoned sheep fank. Usually fanks are constructed from wooden fence posts and sheets of corrugated iron. This one was made entirely from stone and concrete. Most unusual.

The construction on the right was for enclosing a small number of sheep, before they would be forced down the narrow channel. The channel would be filled with water and dipping fluid. The purpose, as now, was to rid the sheep of parasites.

My #keyboardio #atreus2 #mechanicalkeyboard is here! Really nice packaging and build quality. The #speedcopper switches seem fine. Thanks @technomancy for the design and @obra and crew for all the effort going into producing and shipping these!

Looks like #gravatar has a bad day. Yet again people hording personal data lost control over it by accident. For something "as simple as an avatar service" that is a bit of a mess.

Maybe check if you want to use #libravatar which is not interested in any profile data and if you feel especially majestic, you can just selfhost it, like I do, with not more than nginx and a shell script that uses imagemagick.

@killyourfm seems yesterday when most were screaming horror and SUSE was the only mainstream linux distro to use and push for btrfs. I am super happy that fedora jumped in. Btrfs for the win!

uspol, prevent election rigging 

Today, I #choosedemocracy. This fall, it's going to be up to we, the people, to make sure our election is free and fair. I'm personally ready to do what it takes to defend our democracy, and I hope you are too. Let's get ready together --> choosedemocracy.us/

uspol, presidential "debates" 

As someone who lives in the suburbs of one of Trump's "anarchist" cities, I'm so surprised to learn the suburbs are "gone". I can vouch that it's safe for my neighbors to walk their dogs outside or for kids to play unsupervised in the parks.

Since I no longer have persistent cookies for Twitter.com active and can use all my own pages with SSO, I'm usually to bothered to log into Twitter these days because I have to get my phone out and do TOTP :D

My self-hosted setup around Mastodon, Nextcloud, Gitlab, … Is just one click and when I need to login, I can use either TOTP or WebAuthN. So straight forward, that it doesn't get in my way. :blobfoxtea:

11/10 Recommended for everyone. :blobfoxwink:

This is one of the first photographs I took of the same Scots Pine, in 2009. Note the lack of other trees in the surroundings.

My all-time favourite tree (the tall one, to the right of the photo). I have photographed this tree more than any other.
