Sometimes it does actuality works to just ignore a problem. Updated my #librelec with #tvheadend today: After that update the EPG stopped working. After messing around and pulling my hair an hour or so, it was dinner time. When I returned later that evening, then the EPGuide was filled with entries 🙄
Anybody else around running #kodi #LibreElec with #tvheadend ? Last couple of days after kodi startup, kodi cannot reach tvHeadEnd. But if I subsequently enter the tvHeadEnd app configuration, and just enter some random setting, but not changing anything, - they it suddenly springs to life and works
What is the EU thinking here? This proposal will destroy privacy and strong encryption in Europe. They are trying to tackle child abuse, but in this case it's failing while killing privacy for everyone.
Microsoft still doing #microsoft things: https://www.theregister.com/2022/02/17/microsoft_ans_patent/
I wonder why the creator, google and others involved can not class prior act on this #patent though.
How #spotify aims to destroy the free and independent #podcast. To monetize podcasting they plan to "..include tags in their shows that are used to track who listened, if they heard an ad, and whether they took action upon hearing it"

Have long hesitated to replace our halogen spots in the kitchen, but now that LED strips with RA97 is available at a reasonable price I thought the time had come
@neil There are many Firefox forks which would address these issues such as LibreWolf, GNU Icecat, etc.
But the main issue that one needs to consider is the monopoly of Chromium in the web space. Ditching Firefox for a Chromium-based browser only makes this worse, regardless of the one you choose.
The Chromium monopoly gives Google near-total control over web standards, decreases incentives for cross-browser support (e.g, Skype only works on Chromium-based browsers) and would ultimately leave Google as your last-man-standing with ultimate reign over the web. Not really an ideal scenario, is it?
While these Chromium-based browsers may be ungoogled, hardened and have nice slick UIs etc., switching to them will result in a huge net-loss for everyone in the long term.
@hamishcampbell @adders I would make a distinction between pseudanonymity and true anonymity. Pseudanonymity has been the traditional standard for the internet, and it has mostly worked well. We don't need to know who people are "IRL" (which is a bit of a legacy term now) but they do need to have a stable nom de plume so that we know who we're communicating with and they can be held accountable within the rules of a community. People without any stable personal identity - the truly anonymous - can be a problem because you can't kick them from a forum and there's no way to hold them accountable for anything.
I think there is a place for true anonymity under certain conditions - such as whistleblowing - but it's not a good idea within social networks where you need at least minimal accountability for it to work at all.
When I download a picture in #tusky om Android, where does it end up?

One of the tasks I was assigned when I started on my current workplace, was to up the security. All Linux setup was done by hand and the list of bad habits and jump the lowest fence was looong.
I'v done a lot of things but lately I may have gone a little to far 🤠 The other morning several colleagues was really angry on me, accusing me of lacking pedagogical skills!
I had replaced root prompt (PS1) with
"YO DOOKIE - USE sudo NOT root : "
