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. 🎉 🧙‍♀️

I'm putting a jar on my desk.

I am still disappointed that some website limit the password lenght and character type when creating passwords.

@ericbuijs Unfortunately it becomes a catch 22. You don't leave YouTube because other services don't have the user base. Other services don't have the user base because they don't have the content to get them to use it. Infinite loop.

You know, I originally started my FOSS "journey" due to ethical concerns with proprietary stuff. But now, even though ethics are still a major point, another point has grown in importance, which is that proprietary alternatives to what I use are just not up to par.

Privacy isn't about hiding bad things.

It’s about protecting what defines us as human beings, who we are: our day-to-day behavior, our personality, our fears, our relationships, and our vulnerabilities.

@Twelve sudo apt install torbrowser-launcher

The black screen issue is a bug, and can be fixed by:

sudo apt install apparmor-utils
sudo aa-disable /etc/apparmor.d/torbrowser.Browser.firefox

(which is a temporary fix, per chaos.social/@hexmasteen/10301)

Make sure to download Tor from the repo, as there are pretty realistic fraudulent ones going 'round that will steal your crypto and stuff.

Been trying for a long time to get the to install on based systems. Going from the wevsite and downloding it from there recomended in the guids i found on debian org. I only seem to be able to open it as a text file. When trying to add a reposetory and doing it that way the browser installs but dose not launch correctly. Just get stuck on a black screen. Any idea on how to run the tor browser correctly?

"So i just came out to my dad abt being #nb, and he said something really wise about names, i think.

He said “Gifts are not obligations. You give things to people, and you hope they like them. And your name was a gift from us to you. If it doesn’t work for you anymore, you’re not obligated to keep it.”

and i just thought maybe other people could use hearing something like that."

So, apparently my #PC is dead.
I haven't had it on for more than a month, as one or the fans was rattling, and I didn't have time to sort that out and didn't want to risk overheating it.
When I tried to turn it on today, it didn't power on at all.
The motherboard is showing very quickly flickering LEDs from just being connected to the power supply, so perhaps it's just a matter of a dead PSU, but unfortunately I don't think I have a spare one lying around just to test.

What kind of differences would I run into running Debian server vs running Ubuntu server? I'm not really experienced in this type of thing. I'm used to running stuff on raspberry Pi's/raspbian so I don't think Debian will be too much different. Is Ubuntu server any easier?
