Do you have a strategy for added ? How many numbers do you have and what do you use them for? Do you go as far as never giving out your true number?

@VincentTunru @5am @Zwifi Yes I do :) But I haven't updated it for a long while. I am still using an old version of NSS, but maybe if I did it today I would use CSS. I don't mind so much because I'm the only one using it, I don't host data for anyone else.

You can read about how I did it in my website. Since I wrote that, I haven't changed a single thing:



Anyone experimented with self-hosted Pods? I'm excited about the concept behind Solid and other decentralised, sovereign ID solutions, just haven't tried any of them yet.

Anyone else seeing this? I made a comment that included "" and got this from Facebook.

@kate Looks like they're desperate for funds. It is alarming, and we should support ff somehow.
If ff fails, the web will remain chromium-only (except maybe caves of gemini). That would leave google alone to set all the rules. Somewhat doomsday scenario. So don't be too picky and keep supporting ff. If they fail in funding, we all will get ads in chromium address bar or something worse.

Any other users noticed ? I have a and I'm getting overheating middle of the night when phone is on charge. I suspect it's some backups process going haywire in the background because I keep noticing a Seedvault notification progress bar endlessly cycling. But I kill the process and the phone doesn't cool down. Bit lost for ideas...

Those fedizens who've chosen No, because they hardly use bots anyway:

Are you aware of what bots are available to you, and how they may be of service? I know that I don't have a complete overview.

#Bot #developer on the #Fediverse could you respond and introduce your bot project to this #poll thread?

If they are #foss then I will also add them to the #ActivityPub developer watchlist at:

Boosts appreciated.. 🙏

Interested to know people's approaches to home . I'm happy with the simplicity of on a Zero, which I stream over a back to my . I'd love to add more to the collection, but just don't seem to have the room or the wiring for it in my small flat. Let me know your thoughts.

🔥 Just released a fresh little tool for the devs out there 🔥

gitty, a smart little CLI helper for git projects, that shows you all the relevant issues, pull requests and changes at a quick glance. It currently only supports the GitHub API, but I'd eventually like it to become a bit more agnostic.

Get it here:

Just started reading #Snowden's article "The All-Seeing 'i': Apple Just Declared War on Your Privacy"

The title is undoubtedly a play on "The All-Seeing Eye" from LotR.

Immediately followed by “Under His Eye” from #TheHandmaidsTale and after a while I see "a person of interest" which (without the 'a') is the title of another TV show I like :-D
@snowden also throws in a reference to the Cypherpunk FAQ

Excellent content too (so far) btw ;-)

Many of the streamed sessions of #DebConf21 are already uploaded in and the remaining ones will appear in the following days. Thank you again from all of us at Debian!

What's in a phone number?

Quite a lot, actually. Privacy tech and phone numbers don't mix. Thats why when you #GetSession, we don't ask for one.
