I finished reading #PermanentRecord a couple of days ago and I liked it despite knowing about most of the stuff described in it. Edward Snowden is a hero!
Completed today ✔️ #TheLastOfUsRemastered
I know many of you here have heard this or similar stories multiple times (or you wouldn't be here). But it's a story that needs to be told and shared over and over because it's important to us and our daily lives now and in the future.

Bought the e-book version of "Permanent Record" today on Amazon.in, started reading it right away and completed ~25%. Since I don't have a Kindle device associated with my Amazon account, I couldn't de-DRM the book like I usually do for my e-book purchases. So I'm stuck with the Kindle app to read the book on my phone. 😞 #defectivebydesign #drm
@Gargron for instance I've started following a lot of fellow Indians who migrated to Mastodon recently and the volume of toots from those users is very high and hence the toots from previous follows are drowned out and difficult to reach unless I scroll down a lot. Adding those follows to a list and hiding them from the home timeline will be useful.
Just wish that there was a way in Mastodon to add some of the follows with frequent toots to a list and hide their toots from the home timeline so that toots from other follows are not drowned out or pushed too far down. #wishlist @Gargron I know there are open issues for this, but it doesn't look like it is not going to be worked on for various reasons.
Glad to see that Redmi Note 4 (mido) is now back with official #LineageOS support! Thanks to the new maintainer!
We need to talk about policing and facial recognition/fingerprint scanning. There needs to be better regulation of this activity. Do read:
In the history of India, seven million lives have never been paralysed in one stroke..
This is never contemplated under this Constitution. Which is why this kind of matter has never come before this court.
It is today, Kashmir. Tomorrow it could be Nagaland.
State has to be citizen's benefactor. All restrictions on rights have to be for citizens' benefits. Cannot be abrogative of the rights.
Ended up learning a lot of ways to do the same things and achieve the same goals. But I managed to get most of the things done exactly the way I wanted. The letsencrypt container acts as the reverse proxy for all the apps and terminates SSL. Running additional nginx containers for PHP sites running on FPM was unavoidable to keep the app-specific stuff in its own container stack.
Nearly done with migrating all my self-hosted services from native installations to a docker-compose based setup, just a couple more to go. It has been fun and challenging. The linuxserver.io team has done a great job with their containers and I ended up using those for almost all my needs, saving a lot of effort and time 😅
