Good morning everyone and goats, happy Monday! Yeah, back to work too. We highly recommend retirement and goat farming when that's all over though!

Sorry not sorry about the Pixelfed double post ๐Ÿ˜‡

Finally ran a 5K BEFORE WORK ๐Ÿฅณ๐ŸŽ‰ and my fastest too!

This is interesting: browser has an Ad Rewards system:

โ€œIf you choose to see privacy-respecting ads, you earn 70% of the ad revenue. Your earnings accrue in a browser wallet which you can then use to tip and support your favorite creators, spread among all your sites and channels, redeem for products, or exchange for cash. Over 316,000 websites have already signed up.โ€

Nice to see the creator of JavaScript use his powers for good:

Now that we have American presidential candidates normalizing the idea of owning your data like personal property, I wonder how the project ( is doing?

This is officially the best graphic that explains how works.

If I got a euro for every time someone says to me how rare it is to see a woman work in IT (2 euro for "and they usually look like trolls!") I could finally hire another female sysadmin. ๐ŸŽ‰ ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ

I'm putting a jar on my desk.

One of my users brought me a brownie today so I already won anyway.

I always feel awkward about gendered award shows, while at the same time being deeply bitter about not making the list ๐Ÿ˜…

Oh awesome, RedHat has open sourced quay!

This is awesome, because it comes along with a decent web UI and nice features like integrated container scanning and alike.

If you selfhost a container registry, it's definitely worth a look.

This article about the recent arrival on Mastodon of many Twitter users from #India is by far more complete than many others I've seen these days:
But unsurprisingly it ends with a common doubt about Mastodon being a platform filled with echo chambers.

Well, being an italian that in the last days interacted with so many people from India and having learned from many new things about indian society from them it sounds fun ๐Ÿ˜„

On Mastodon you can find and interact with a huge amount of different communities: LGBT communities based in UK, vegans from the States, german metalheads, Solarpunks, some algerian guys, italian anarchists, french hackers, anime-fans from all around, indian muslims, south american activists...

It's a kind of variety that is rarely encountered on commercial social media.

After another ice cold rainy day, with 6 more months of the same to go, and after years of seasonal depression, I've decided that it is seriously time to leave the Netherlands. Not sure how long it will take, but I have to go.

Next question is.. where to move to? ๐ŸŒ

Update on this issue! Turns out Google broke something ๐Ÿ™Œ

Around 136 people said that they are interested in the #digitalsecurity office hour. I am doing the first one tomorrow at 8PM IST.

Feel free to ask me questions (mentioning my handle) and #securityofficehour hashtag. I will answer over video + toots tomorrow.

@Deepsealioness @nixxin @jamewils @Memeghnad can you please boost this one?

I'd like to get feedback from users about what we as an IT department should prioritize. Does anyone know a or alternative to ?

I'm honestly a bit burned out today.

There's a list of projects and chores that I have to tackle by myself, but every task leads to 10 smaller tasks. So much to do, so little mental bandwidth.

Ahhh we're currently at that temperature in Amsterdam that makes me want to sell all my stuff and move to Spain. ๐Ÿฅถ๐Ÿฅถ

Before anyone asks; we can't use the Outlook mobile app because there are a few issues between our mailserver and Outlook, such as images and attachments not being visible.

It seems that staying is increasingly becoming impossible.

update. Sigh.

It's Sunday morning 07:00. I get a notification from my Androids email app (Gmail, I know, only app that works well with an Exchange protocol that isn't Outlook) saying our email server isn't secure enough for their mobile app. Removed the account, added it again, same issue.

โ€œContact your IT admin for help.โ€

I am the IT admin...
