Looks like Santa was here and brought me the thing I always wanted when I was a kid: the most secure and hackeable watch ever invented, the CASIO F-91W

Big red flag on the F-Droid ecosystem

Newpipe v. 0.20.1 (both foxy Droid & F-Droid versions) are crashing if launch from external app. Not big deal about that.

What is really fishy is to immediately after the crash offering to download and install an APK with the - apparently - updated version (0.20.2) bypassing all the protections we may have .

Do you know something about it, @fdroidorg ?

My friends decided I'm not welcome in their group because I did mention I'm still using Linux's kernel 4.1x branch and I have no intentions to jump to 5.x anytime soon.

Me, the genius: I think I'll use asdf-vm in this old RaspberryPi

Today is the last day I'm using Todoist* as my main ToDo application. There's nothing wrong with the service or app, it's a pretty solid product.

It's all on me. I'm more conscious about my privacy and realize I don't want to keep telling a 3rd party what , when, where I do things.

Maybe I'll be back the day they add client-side encryption. In the mean time I deleted my account I was using since 2015.

Next time you think your data is not valuable remember these images.
This is what I can track in my local network. Nice graphs and metadata I got without any fancy nor expensive technology: around $0 since it's produced by my EdgeRoute X & PiHole.
Imagine this kind of data aggregated by your ISP or "no logger ever" VPN provider.

It's probably a minimal help, but at least for me the work I've done in this month is substantial and made feel good for having the privilege of collaborate with projects
