Ohhhh, after looking at wikipedia, this is probably, because the company died and the domain got used for spam
The cambridge analytica about page on the wayback machine is a little bit weird^^ It looks a lot like ads for Viagra and stuff, tho I don't know the language.
The most recent snapshot is from 2022-05-07 and the issue goes back to at least 2020-07-29.
I wanted to check something about CA for uni, but their website times out, so I tried the wayback machine. Not that much help either, but at least a bit funny^^
Something a bit different today...
There's a really nice Fediverse admin on here called @stux who provides lots of free decentralised public services (public instances of Mastodon, PeerTube, Pixelfed, Matrix, Nitter, Invidious, Searx etc).
Stux is spending hundreds of euros a month so that these services remain free and operational.
Apparently Stux has had a tough time finding work recently, but has their own small business which provides web hosting.
If you're looking for a small indie hosting provider, this might be a really good choice as the money raised will help keep the Fedi going too:
(I'm sorry to embarass you Stux, but I think you deserve a shout-out for the good work you do!)
I think having the "Be the change you want to see" mindset has been very beneficial for me.
Tired of Windows and MS? Changed to Linux and I'm happy.
Not comfortable with Google? Moved pretty much all my stuff outside of Google's hands, except one old email I barely use.
Tired of Youtube's ads and stuff? I use now Freetube.
Twitter gives me headache? Deleted my Twitter, use Fedi now.
Need cloud stuff? Self host.
Can't find addon downloader on Linux for Elder Scrolls Online? Made my own! :)
And you cant even return a digital game....
There are two character types in D2R, online and offline. You need to use the online type to have cross progression with PC, which is totally fine. BUT you need a Nintendo online membership just to play as that type. Why?! I don't want to play with others, I don't care about PvP, I only want cross progression. Why tf do I need a membership with Nintendo for that?!! For fucks sake.
And nowhere is it said, that I need that for cross progression....
I am tired of bullshit like that.
If you are pondering on whether to host your own mailserver: please do! I have been running a couple - hosting others as well, and it has been a bliss. Google has the biggest share of MXes - lets break that monopoly and reclaim our inbox
Also, feel free to contact me if you wish for help and/or guidance
So here's a question out there for the fediverse,
Do you have any experience with the #hondanavi at all? Do you know someone that does?
I figure crowdsourcing some actual on-road experience about the thing would be helpful in deciding whether or not I get one.
I require help on small motorized machines like only talking heads on the internet can
POLL - Which of your hands is dominant?
Fedi-wide survey. Boosts appreciated.
I decided to repeat this poll after @samgai came to the this conclusion:
Favorite Linux desktop workflow?
I'm genuinely curious. I love i3wm, but there are times it feels clumsy, especially when at work and I have a LOT of windows open (I primarily use tabs, or what POP!_OS calls stacks).
Don't just vote, tell me *why* what you chose works so well for you, and how you got into the flow of it.
I'm looking into alternatives for my current setup for my professional workflow (non-tech, non-creative type work)
Kindly boost for more nerd-coverage. :D
Gonna try to wrap up the documentation and tooling in the next few days and announce #uxn core freeze.
