Dear Hivemind, #AskMastodon
Common problem: I am reading a lot of articles on certain topics, but not all turn out to be interesting to me. I would like to have some tool helping me to filter out paragraphs or full articles. Does anyone have a recommendation? Thanks!
For example, I could imagine a browser addon that highlights texts or generates a word cloud, where word size is based on general and webpage-specific word frequency. Words like "the" fade away and very specific words get marked.
Oh sweet candy

Torsocks is a simple program that runs a specified command and forces all network communications through Tor. Connections that cannot be routed through Tor are denied, ensuring security. Torsocks performs DNS through the Tor daemon, which allows for terminal programs to access hidden services without modification.

"The FBI found Eric Marques by breaking the famed anonymity service Tor, and officials won’t reveal if a vulnerability was used. That has activists and lawyers concerned."
We need to make CLI Great Again. Or at least make developing with NCurses cool again. Im working with files in ranger, playing music in moc, watching coin markets with cointop, reading feeds in newsboat, making todo lists in calcurse, and posting to Mastodon with fern...oh and reading reddit, at the same time, under 450mb of ram.
I just learned that Nitter offers RSS feeds!
Append "/rss" to the URL of the account you're interested in, so it looks like:
By using http://twitrss.me one could subscribe with RSS to the tweets of a Twitter account. There are projects that let a bot tweet from (multiple) RSS feeds, e.g. using https://gitlab.com/chaica/feed2toot .
So it is possible and even self-hosting both parts is possible. However can somebody think of a better way?
Do not burn me as I dare to ask the unspeakable: #AskMastodon
In theory, is there a smart way to have tweets from a set of Twitter accounts show up in my Mastodon home timeline?
I refuse to get a Twitter account, since Twitter refused my registration attempts with privacy-enhanced browsers and without giving away personal data I deem irrelevant to Twitter.
So I turned to good old RSS and started using http://twitrss.me/ to be able to follow Twitter accounts. Works pleasingly well.
Do you need a DNS server without censorship and for privacy?
@digitalcourage runs a DNS server located in Germany that doesn't log normal user requests:
👉 2a02: 2970: 1002: 0: 5054: 8aff: fe12: db49
👉 Encrypted requests DNS-over-TLS
So I dove into setting up a blog that would meet the ethical / privacy standards of the #FOSS community, but could also function like a normal website, with analytics and monetization. It might be possible:
- No share buttons to proprietary social media platforms.
- No plugins with 3rd party trackers.
- No affiliate marketing via unethical affiliate networks (example, Amazon)
- Matomo instead of Google Analytics.
- https://codefund.io/ instead of Google AdSense 🎉
Am I forgetting anything?
How did I not know about this manga Ubuntu comic before now? https://gitlab.com/ubunchu-translators/ubunchu
Well worth a read, this!
