greek ex-finance minister Varoufakis in a Twitter debate over a DS9 analogy :-) The best Star Trek by far IMHO

RT @yanisvaroufakis: Eddington deserted because he objected to a Federation treaty that forced some of its own settlers to return home to secure a peace that would save millions of lives => Eddington principled but wrong. Plus, his critique had no bearing on the Prime Directive t.co/Ud8zjrCmQv

What's the best App for iPhone for XMPP currently? The biggest issue for my iPhone contacts is that the app (ChatSecure, monal.im) gets put to sleep, so that new message notifications stop after a while. Is there any progress on this front?

@gabor so far I am noticing that it consumes my battery much faster

Ok so I installed Windows 11 mainly because many people here wrote so positively about it. It's a good looking OS... what else is new?

RT Snowden:
🚨🚨 Apple says to "protect children," they're updating every iPhone to continuously compare your photos and cloud storage against a secret blacklist. If it finds a hit, they call the cops.

iOS will also tell your parents if you view a nude in iMessage.

Abschiebungen nach #Afghanistan sollten gestoppt werden. Sofort. Verstehe nicht, was es da noch groß zu überlegen gibt. 😢

Ok so the only way for me to solve this was by isolating the searx docker container and routing all of it's network traffic through a vpn client container. Wireshark says: no more connections to google bing or whatever :-) speed is great too.

Any of you guys self-host searx? I set it up with an outbound socks5 proxy through my vpn provider. I figured this way is more private because it hides my ip from google. The question is: how do I know now if the proxying works? As a test I tried changing one character in the auth passw. however this did not break searx. This makes me suspicious that it is not proxying at all. Does anyone have an idea how to test which IP google sees for my search requests? :-)) i hope that was clear...

At 8:05 am today, I became a citizen of the Federal Republic of Germany... no ceremony, no pledge of alliegence and no handshake under corona virus regulations. Basically, a clerk gave me a piece of paper through a plexi glass. Quite the anti climax. Still, Im glad 😊

Germany: Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) last to announce agenda for 2021 elections

They certainly took their time, but on June 21, the two chairmen of the sister parties CDU and CSU announced the party platform on which the Union is running under chancellor candidate Armin Laschet. The agenda doesn’t fail to dissapoint. A quick analysis.
