Looking for Slack app ideas. Especially if they're dumb :)

I'll say it again, but clarify a little:

If you're in a conversation where you believe the other person is communicating in good faith, and they tell you that you have privilege try not to argue with them. They may be onto something.

You might even want to embrace it! You might see great value in feeling grateful for the things you do have. It may be a source of happiness.

It'll also make it clearer as to when it's time to help someone less fortunate than you.

Don't argue with the fact that you have privilege or argue with someone who tells you that you're privileged. Acknowledge and embrace it and use it to feel gratitude for what you do have. It'll help you paint a clearer picture of when you should be helping someone less fortunate.

🤔 Something I should have set up a long time ago: automatic push to the VPS I use for blog posts!

Git push = Drone gets pushing!

42.5k banned IPs for scraping my Gitea instance o.o

So one side of this whole mask wearing thing is that, if you're wearing a semi-unique mask, going to businesses often means people getting to know you by your mask rather than idk, your beautiful smile, or even your hair

false alarm, I forgot that I had turned off my DMZ to test out some work stuff :(

After settling on 15,007 banned IPs, finally my server's access logs are quiet once again :)

Protip: if you want to host Gitea or any other self-hosted versioning webapp at home, use fail2ban and robots.txt to block all scrapers.

It will wreak havoc on your home network if you don't have proper networking equipment.

In just a few hours I have over 5000 IPs banned. And requests are *still* coming in from the same/similar user agents.

Aaand fixed. Within 20 minutes I now have 144 banned IPs. Soon enough all those scrapers should just disappear and all will be good again in the world :)

side note: this doesn't look right...

Anyone have a clue how to fix this? It doesn't look like it's actually blocking anything like this...

There's something sooper satisfying about watching the banned IPs thanks to fail2ban :3

I was gonna make a joke about wanting to do a bad lip-reading of trump but then not doing it because it would be too easy, but then I thought that would be too easy

What's your favourite memory of 2020 so far?

inb4 "I have none", I'm sure you can figure something out :)

I'm seeing a cool lot of protesters of Native American descent blocking of ways into mount Rushmore with the . Don't care what your political affiliation is, you should stand with them if you can and spread the message.

This land is our land? Nah, this land is THEIR land.

You're a technomancer, Harry!

PSA: Don't leave your broken or soiled stuff in donation bins. Nobody wants that shit. Fuck you.

:( Having any public facing pages on a homeserver is destroying my connectivity at home. I'll have to dive deeper into my router's settings.

I already limited bandwidth but idk what else I could realistically do
