Hello Fediverse, and and especially PeerTube's admins.

After finding Neo-Nazi content on the instance I was using, I realized that far-right groups have created PeerTube instances or use unmoderated instances to share their videos.

This content federates on other instances.

I've created this account to list somewhere theses instances, making it easier to isolate them and their content and protect us.

The list : cryptpad.fr/pad/#/2/pad/view/V

You can help by reporting instances to this account.

You can follow this account to get update about this list (theses will be under a content warning).

I think the three R's (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) are missing a critical fourth R. (Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle)

Is watching a 4:3 film stretched to fill a 16:9 screen a boomer thing?

Shout out for the Newaita icon set. Its fairly complete, desaturated and not completely flat! I've paired it with the Pop! OS theme for a satisfying retro look.

One thing I really like about unmodified GNOME is the adaptive wallpaper that changes based on time of day. Very swanky.

ICE is demanding data on activists from their email providers.

Kudos to Riseup for not keeping the info that ICE was looking for.

I decided to try Fedora 31 to experience the latest version of GNOME. Wow. It just gets better and better. And Fedora, I haven't used it in a long time, but I think I understand its vision. I like the direction it's going with its multi-layered OS. I personally don't like things like that, or snaps and flatpaks, but it's neat. I also installed LXDE on the side, and even there, I like the way Fedora does things. The package manager is a great system. This version of GNOME beats Pantheon for me.

I got internet back! It looks like things really changed here. I'm going to have to rework who/what I follow 😮

I found some assignments from school, one of them was from "journalling class", describe a "perfect day", what would it look like? And it's scary how much of what made it up was stuff beyond my control...like what the weather would be like or revolved around what other people did. I'm glad that the shit I went through since then has beat that mindset out of me. 😂

Far from checking the spread of immorality, repression has always extended and deepended it. Thus it is futile to oppose it by rigorous legislation which trespasses on individual liberty.

Is it not possible to export chat history on Telegram anymore? I've found guides to do it, but it looks like the option has been removed? But I can't find any mention of it being removed.

Everyone complains about politicians. Everyone says they suck. But where do people think these politicians come from? They don't fall out of the sky; they don't pass through a membrane from a separate reality. They come from American homes, American families, American schools, American churches, and American businesses. And they're elected by American voters. This is what our system produces, folks. This is the best we can do.
