Every additonal day that rcs isnt standardized is a day I die a little bit more inside
(I made a dropbox account just to send someone a video I took)

Copying all the data in all partitions from one storage device to another is apparently as easy as a single dd command. Who knew? In other news, I'm liking the boot times for my new m.2 drive. I've only used hard drives before.

Very concerning words from the Attorney General. He desires all encryption based software to have a backdoor no matter what.

@switchingsocial It's really difficult to find good alternatives which are open source.Most times they're either stupid text captchas or closed source.Here are some alternatives,not all of them perfect but maybe acceptable:
- captcheck.netsyms.com I just found out about it.It's open source and works with icons,so it's fast and easy to solve.
- wiki.hsr.ch/StefanKeller/wiki. It's based on OpenStreetMap and improves the map data by solving captchas,so it's a win-win situation.It's also open source but unfortunately the git isn't public so you have to drop the author a email (please let me know about the response if you do)
- github.com/Lokno/click-captcha Is what I used on my old,proprietary sites and it was really cool.Just click on the circle and you're finished.It's open source and selfhosted.
- pluscaptcha.com Is what I currently use.Unfortunately it's closed source but it seems to be a small hobby project so privacy shouldn't be that bad there.
- keycaptcha.com Closed source but free and looks like that's also not a big company.I somehow trust the smaller ones much more.Very simple to solve.
- geetest.com/en/ Closed source and made by a Chinese company.Maybe not the best option but at least it's simple to solve and user-friendly so it's also not the worst.
- phpcaptcha.org A basic open source and selfhosted text captcha.Looks ugly but is still way less frustrating than the Google shit.
I hope I could help you with this list.I don't know if all of those are good enough for your recommendation page but maybe at least a few of them.

A friend of mine published a very detailed blog post about making your own Cola.
It's a bit like alchemy:

People who talk about oppression.

And then turn around and beg for oppression to be placed on who they feel is oppressing them.

And don't realize the irony.

These people are going to ruin the fediverse much much faster than Gab ever will.

The solution? Make all of your passwords sound like innocuous messages you'd send to slack anyway.

Email password: Hey, who's going to be in on Monday?

Laptop password: Does anyone have that pricing sheet?

I don't want to know how many browsers do not verify #XPI signatures anymore... Like zombies, walking around

If you disabled xpinstall.signatures.required make sure you reenable it now! :firefox: :doomguy:

And pass this reminder on to your peers and channels

Do you use tail -f ?
Love those annoying "are you watching" messages on Netflix?
Ever thought.. gee I wish I could combine both these things?

You wish has come true with tailflix!
