Have no desire to be on twitter, but until we get more of a critical mass here, we'll use a cross poster.

Thx @sparky & @Sire for the recommendation!

Any recommendations for masto-twitter cross-posting service? Tried this one

Do you know any group/community/association working on the issue of #GAFAM and other giant #tech corps in #schools? We want to start thinking about an awareness-raising campaign in our own group for the next schoolyear, and I'm on the hunt for ideas! (Boosts appreciated) 🤗

The fact that is considered legal for a corporation to compile perfect records of your private life simply because you had to "click OK to continue" to make your phone work is a perfect expression of who holds the power in society and why they should be cast into the sea.

Listening to this: on RNZ I'm struck how wrong it is that this work is being done with a profit motive. Rather than improving things for people suffering pretty horrible disabilities, it's seems focused on improving bottom lines for shareholders. 1/2

Ireland v Scotland. Fans mixed in the crowd. No hassle. Great atmosphere. That's what football should be.

It helps that we won 3-0...

As long as the code behind "smart" home devices is proprietary, these companies are free to spy on us as much as they like. Help us fight back: tell your friends about free software and urge then to join the FSF! Support #FreeSoftware.

Spent better part of a day trying to automate scraping & downloading 80+ xlsx sheets of govt stats only to be frustrated at every turn by inconsistent file & url naming conventions.

The code wouldn't have been reusable. Ended up doing it manually in under an hour. Then went for a beer. Not sure if it was deserved but it was needed

Interesting news today! Google Analytics is illegal according to the French DPA 👀

I've now updated our post on this situation:

Managed to catch these movie gems during my covid isolation so far:

Ill Partita (The Match) - funny story with great characters about a crunch match for amateur team Sporting Roma. A must for any football fan. Tragic & hilarious

Out of the Furnace - blockbuster revenge narrative with Springsteen-like commentary on life for the working poor in USA. Sad but gripping

Check them out if you're looking for a good way to spend a couple hours

Uurgh. Been clear two years and tested positive last night. Thankfully symptoms mild for now but already bored shitless

Binging on Dark. Nice german scifi mind bender to keep me company.

Any other recommendations appreciated!

My intro to docker has been setting up a shared calendar for my coop using radicale and nginx as reverse-proxy.

Had a struggle & little sleep over last 3 days but got there in the end!

Now to dockerize the shit out of our production sites and services. Good to learn a new thing & hoping it'll streamline our maintenance work
