Does anyone know how to contact LibreMusicProduction.com?

The site got hacked (now occasionally serves spam links, and does who knows what else), and their contact form was taken down.

(I hate to start a boost chain, but this is somewhat important. )

Anyone else looking at purchasing a new ? I think USB 3.0 ports and gigabit internet will actually be a big performance boost over my rpi2. Maybe I'll finally set up nextcloud and move my mumble instance off of aws.

Google's Captcha is one of the worst trackers out there - because you have to use it even if you refuse to use Google: kevv.net/you-probably-dont-nee

Little known fact! Most email services are hosted in the cloud.

More precisely in The Oort cloud; which is about 40 light weeks or so away. That’s why unsubscribing takes so long. #tmyk

The same person also recommended Algo VPN. It's a set of Ansible scripts that you can point at a VPS and it'll set up your own VPNs. There is WireGuard, IPSEC, script for adding/removing users, adblocking with local DNS, it generates Apple profiles for automatic configuration of iOS/macOS.

As always, before getting a VPN or setting one up, read about what they're really meant for and how they should be used. VPNs don't provide anonymity. They don't increase your privacy x1000. Here are a couple of resources I recommend reading.

We’re now on Mastodon 2.9, which comes with the new single column layout.

New users will get the new layout, but existing users will need to switch.

You can switch between the single and multi column layouts by going to Settings > Preferences > Appearance then enabling/disabling the “Advanced Web Interface”.

Another simple script to backup #KeePassXC password file quickly, here is a script I run with my other backup tasks:

KEEPASS="<Folder to KeePassXC kdbx file>"
cp "$KEEPASS/pdb.kdbx" "$KEEPASS/$(date "+%F").kdbx.bak"

This way I have a daily backup which is then backed up offsite 😃

The #FediWAN #Gaming Party is a group of peeps from the #Fediverse that get together and play some multiplayer games :blobnerd:

We've got a few FLOSS options, some free but proprietary listings, and a bunch of paid games so there's something for everyone :blobwink:

If you don't see one you want to play, feel free to add it in alphabetical order and list yourself under it! :blobhappy:

I've been enjoying using just vanilla Ubuntu, but the Gnome desktop is just too sluggish on my laptop. I'm thinking I'm going to go back to Ubuntu Mate or Ubuntu Budgie. Probably Mate.
