@thumb Oh hey, this is really cool. I wonder if my ISP can block an email provider altogether? I believe this has been done before w/ Protonmail. Same goes for Signal! Sure they are more resilient now, but...

This is why I am often second guessing my usage of what would be considered... obscure services in my country. They can be taken down any time.

This is easy to bypass - what happens when it's something critical that I need but there's no chance of access?


@edgren Which open source app do you use for GitHub?

Lately I've been going the PWA/web app route on my phone. It's inconvenient for sure. :/

Loading change.org with JavaScript disabled makes petitions default to zero signatures. If only that data could be server-side rendered.

One day we'll be able to overcome these challenging technical hurdles.

@vicorva @tuturto Not a problem at all! I'll be sure to check it later on. Looking forward to it. :)

@vicorva Hi, I stumbled upon you via @tuturto 's toots. I wanted to check your website out, but it appears to be down. Could you please take a look?

@markosaric @yarmo @kev is probably the best person to ask for WordPress and IndieWeb. ;)

When viewing personal websites, do you enjoy elaborate home pages or prefer succinct ones?

@kev 😀 Definitely! One coming very, very soon!

@Zambyte @cooper You're right, it didn't! My understanding of it was definitely skewed because all the other 100-day challenges I've seen have usually been consecutive.

Yay! I have added support for mention-of on my site! :D

It was so simple to extend it from how I handle a webmention reply. Structured data from an API + structured development = win. :)

I am not officially participating in as I was sure from the get go I didn't want to put the pressure of putting something out every day, or every few days, on myself.

However, seeing other people publish posts and respond to mine definitely keeps me going too! 😄

So many draft posts!

For July, I have decided to focus on getting 2 to 3 of these drafts ready and published.

Three months ago, I had thought I would quickly reach a point where I wouldn't have anything to write about.

@markosaric Yes, I fixed it now. :)

It was definitely strange seeing 0 unique visitors for two days and wondering how I got to that all of a sudden! :D

It would be really great if computers didn't suck so much

Began working towards a strong on my site and broke Plausible analytics for roughly 2 days! Always, always test, folks!

Hi folks! 9 years ago (to the day), the late Aaron Swartz made the first commit to SecureDrop, which was then called DeadDrop. Today the project is used by >70 media orgs around the world.

It's an open source whistleblower submission platform that uses the Tor network to protect source anonymity. We're also working on a next-generation integrated workstation for journalists based on Qubes OS:

We're happy to be here!
