@leah Hallo, Leah! I’m currently trying to learn Deutsch and I believe that chaos social would be great for me to practice it. How do I get an invite? Vielen Dank!!

WireGuard removed from Google Play Store due to donation link lists.zx2c4.com/pipermail/wire

And apparently, andOTP has also been removed by Google recently due to a donation link. github.com/andOTP/andOTP/issue

It's just a page that says you can click this link to support the developers, there is no in-app payment. yet the Google overlord banned them from Play.

This is just pure evil.

I hear this all the time:

"I'm a nobody; why would anyone want to hack me?"

I've got six reasons for you:

You have money.
You have good credit.
You were randomly chosen.
You pissed off the wrong person.
Your friend or family members pissed off the wrong person.
You put yourself out there as an online entrepreneur, Twitch streamer, YouTuber, etc.

If you think no one would ever try to hack you, you need this episode.

There's going to be a live YouTube Premier of this episode at YourSecure.Life/2 at 5 PM Eastern US time.

If you're not seeing this post until after that time, don't worry...you can still watch it. Any time, anywhere. Just go to the website.

There is also an audio version (it is a podcast afterall) and a text version of the transcripts, if you're more into reading.

Confirmed: Windows 10 is DRM digital RENTAL media. You will NEVER own your PC again.

Switch to LINUX such as Ubuntu and Linux Mint operating systems. There are no tasks not to be accomplished with Linux of modern that you did via Microsoft Windows!

Windows 10 setup now prevents local account creation; in practice it forces the user to sign in with a Microsoft account.

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

"The reason why so many grown ass men hate Greta Thunberg is because she represents everything they hate listening to; women, children, people with disabilities, science, and just people who are smarter than them in general"

(the author of this was harassed off twitter so let this stand here)

@frumble Yeah, nothing new. You still can do on terminal:

sudo spctl --master-disable

I deleted my Facebook-account years ago, but my latest job (not tech related) uses Facebook for communication.

I created a new account, I have no photos of me there and I share nothing, no posts or anything.

A few days ago they suspended my account for no reason at all and required me to upload an ID of me. I ended up creating a new account days later.

Even though I have nothing of value there I have never felt so powerless. It made me appreciate the ethical fediverse even more.

Reader mode is like 1995 with better fonts and background colors. You wait half a minute for the page to load, then you can finally read the thing.

However you do have to put up with a brief episode of 1999 while the page loads: ads everywhere, garish animations, clashing colours, etc.

While this is happening, 201x is still in effect with 3rd party tracking.

If you're really lucky, someone will have embedded an Adobe- or ActiveX-something and you get the full brunt of all 3 decades at once.

For a second there, there was a picture of "FOR ALL MANKIND" in big letters and I thought Tim would make me eat my own words, but it is just a series (which probably isn't available in Brazil, as usual).

@ajroach42 If you go to take the capitalist's power and redistribute it, you're going to learn there was nothing there but your own oppression and the oppressed assholes helping maintain it.

There won't be anything for you to give out to those who need it, no stock of onions and potatoes to plant, no medical textbooks and practice cadavers. It's just power, it's ephemeral, and it's bullshit.
