Hi everyone! Just migrated my old account @sirduck here, to post more specifically about and issues around the world in general. I'm a student and love learning more about tech, and anything really, I have plenty more interests like and of course I enjoy any and all memes

As you can see I suck at introductions but I'm happy to be here :)

When was the last time you made a backup of your Tails persistence storage?

Here's how you can do it:

- have or create a second Tails stick with persistence storage for backup
- start from your Tails that you wish to backup in admin mode (if you confuse this with your backup Tails, you'll loose data)
- plugin your backup Tails stick and unlock its persistence storage and mount it
- open the terminal and type:

rsync -PaSHAXv --del /live/persistence/TailsData_unlocked/ /media/amnesia/TailsData

I’m so glad Trump is gone. That guy was never fit to be the president of anything and I don’t get how people didn’t see that

Independent security audit performed on our infrastructure, we are now audited on both the infrastructure and the app!

Cure53s statement: “…as expected Cure53 were not able to discover any Personally Identifiable Information attached to Mullvads end-users.”

Good to see: Mullvad had Cure53 audit the security of their infrastructure.

“The security awareness and overall security posture should be regarded as rather good, as expected Cure53 were not able to discover any Personally-Identifiable-Information attached to Mullvad's end-users.”

@Kadda Signal macht den Wechsel weg von Whatsapp am leichtesten, weil umsonst (anders als Threema) und echt einfach und ohne Serversuche (Xmpp, Matrix). Es ist ein guter Anfang, und wer will, kann sich dann gerne über den Gold- und Platinstandard streiten. Entscheidend ist doch, die Leute erstmal von Whatsapp loszukriegen.

🌎 🌍 🌏 I'm working on a #map of #Mastodon servers "near me" basically mapping servers that are region-specific, as a way for folks to find Mastodon users in their region. Blue = signed on to the Mastodon Covenant, Green = I"m not sure they did.

This is my first time using #openstreetmap so I'd be grateful of any and all feedback, and offers to collaborate - I assume I can share the map for editing somehow 🤷

Noticing that #Element is not as sluggish for me right now which is good. Looking for a good discussion room for #movies but I’m not really seeing anything with much activity. Does anyone know of an active one?

I suck at picking usernames/display names. I’m wondering if I should add a different display name to the username @weltsnake.

What do you think, should I change the display name or does weltsnake sound cool enough for mastodon?😁

If you pick “change it” feel free to leave suggestions in the comments!
