@nebunez wouldn't a reverse proxy work? And running your service on a port other than 80/443?

Follow up to my earlier post on Clubhouse


so I just got a Clubhouse invite from a friend of mine and I managed to join up without owning an iPhone using a Clubhouse client that runs on Docker (thus avoiding some privacy issues outlined in my post, but I may eventually get banned :-) )


As of this moment, I am having difficulty finding any actual content that interests me... We'll see how this works out

Baerbock wins Green nomination #Superwahljahr2021 German politics, opinionated 

The 40-year-old party chairwoman and pragmatic green politician becomes first ever female chancellorship candidate of her party, promises to be candidate of change. Continued high support for Green party in polls gives her a real shot as Merkel’s successor. In first interview after nomination, Baerbock advocates for hardliner course against Russia and China.


@mike I thought FLoC is only supposed to be for Chrome... which is as much as 80% of the web according to some (though among my site's visitors its only 25% :-))

@Haydar Hauptsache die Wirtschaft läuft weiter! Im letzten Gesetzentwurf vom Bund wurde schon wieder die HomeOffice-Pflicht gestrichen...

Und über die Pflicht auf Schnelltests durch den Arbeitgeber redet auch keiner mehr....

So, after using Nextcloud for a while and disliking the archival format, my wife wants me to set up something like Mastodon, but just for family communication.

Is it possible to make a private, invitation-only instance that doesn't interoperate with the rest of the world?

Also, is one of the alternative Fedi systems (Plemora, Friendica, etc.) better for this?

We have a decent number of barely computer literate family members across a wide variety of different devices.

Tutanota is blocked in Russia to stop encrypted communication. We need to fight for privacy around the world. ✊ If you are affected, you can still access Tutanota with @torproject or a vpn.

Germany's STIKO withdraws recommendation of AstraZeneca shot for people under 60

The newest decision of Germany’s top vaccine agency will almost definitely delay the end of the COVID-19 pandemic in Germany by months.


@AaronTheIssueGuy great project! Would have liked to try it with my grandpa, he was very interested in computers (used to be an engineer)... unfortunately he passed away shortly before I became involved with FOSS and Ubuntu :-(

Gabor boosted

I think I will get my grandma on Ubuntu or Mint. The only thing she really does is printing things and surfing the web anyway

The week in German COVID-19 politics 

This week’s inconsistent pandemic management and communications chaos makes priorities of Merkel government painfully obvious. Interests of commerce and employers take precedence over pandemic control.

@Haydar klar! Lockerungen wollen nur die Arbeitgeber- und Industrieverbände. Nun wird es für alle offensichtlich, wo die Prioritäten der Regierung wirklich liegen

@moddedBear Lemmy is great. I have never been much of a "reditter" myself but I use lemmy every day for moths now. I fully agree with your post. I am doing my best to contribute to c/worldnews as much as I can 🌍 and you're right, no far right there... it is a leftist / FOSS bubble 😃

Gabor boosted

First impressions of Lemmy are pretty good. The biggest issue right now is the overabundance of tech/FOSS communities but that can easily change as the platform grows. I've written more detailed thoughts below.



@AaronTheIssueGuy slippery slope
(German ISPs planning to use DNS blocking to deny access to websites that "systematically violate copyright")

Wie kann es sein, dass ich davon noch nichts mitbekommen habe?
DNS sperren ohne Gerichtsbeschluss und mit fragwürdiger Neutralität?
Das geht garnicht! Wo ist der Aufschrei?

Hello dear academic journal or publisher,

if you wish to spam us about diversity, equality, and similar,

maybe adopt full open access first so people you want to be inclusive of can afford to read the science without other people risking their lives for us to gain access to it.

Yours truly,


aaaah finally solved auto-switching between light and dark mode on my Jekyll site based on user preference using the default "Minima" theme. Was not easy at all, since the theme doesn't include this functionality by default and is very picky about rendering css stylesheets. And there was no help to be found in forums or tutorials. Again, I learned a lot.
