@kev I recommend using a combination of uBlockOrigin and uMatrix. With both, you can seriously clean up your browsing experience and not just block ads but trackers and profilers of all sorts. uMatrix also gives you useful insight into what 3rd parties websites are connecting to 😉

I see you.

I see you helping a friend, a fedizen, someone who'll prolly become a mutual in some hours or less;

I see you boosting that signal, so that help can reach the intended recipient faster than it would without your click;

I see you replying to a stranger's Introductions post, welcoming them to Fedi and offering help with any questions;

I see you developing tools and/or ideas that are useful for our communities here, often for free, and many times in the shadows;

I see you, and I try to reach you, or at least boost you so other you's can get to you, and we all grow up together. Stronger.

Thank you :ablobsmile:

@velartrill just curious how you ssh to your phone. Does it just connect over the local network or do you have some reverse tunneling business?

Did a 45-60 minute drawing of @kensanata D&D character using random colours.

Now I gotta run!

Asking for help 

My mind is being blown by what you can do with SAT/SMT solvers in Python. You can use them to solve sudoku puzzles in just a handful of lines! I'm starting to wonder what you can't do with them...


Are you against your public posts being saved in the Wayback Machine? (boosts appreciated)

@feynman @mgiagante @MountainJ I never noticed but now that you mention it, it is slow. I think they are doing something wrong with the way the installer sets it up (based on what I saw on these forum posts): forum.manjaro.org/t/very-slow- forum.manjaro.org/t/solved-new

@tek @tek Thanks for sharing! This idea of identity issues resonates with me, as I think it does with many people. I've had the realization a little while ago that I was looking down on people because my identity and idealism was strongly attached to Linux and FOSS. Ever since, it's been a struggle to find a balance of caring about digital rights but not looking down on people who are ignorant or apathetic/resigned (as I once was :).

I've just set up #Nextcloud for any that are interested! Users get 10 GB by default; let me know if you need more and we can talk.

Before registering, make sure you read this page: nixnet.xyz/nextcloud/

It's available over clearnet: cloud.nixnet.xyz/

And over #Tor as a #HiddenService:


@void_zf I'm on as well, and I use (available in the AUR). Not sure what other options are out there but it works.

@Matter @erikstl I switched to Manjaro recently and I like it for these exact reasons. No more compiling obscure software from source! I also realized I forgot to update my display name with the manjaro logo when I switched :) :manjaro:
