@iah I do share my dotfiles, yeah :)

I should probably write down a list of software you'd need to run this out of the box. The big ones would be xst, rofi, awesome (duh), feh, and fish. That makes for a usable system with my dotfiles, then some other tools are needed for full functionality like screenshots and transparency/compositing.

From HN discussion - "This is why I use ad blockers and a pi-hole server" (news.ycombinator.com/item?id=2)

This is GDPR in action. Wow.

No to Chrome – #Google wants to automate us

notochrome.org/

There is a simple first step that every internet user can take to make things a little better. Seek out a better web browser to replace Google Chrome and tell everyone to do the same.

Reposting a comment I made on HN regarding the proposed EU ban on facial recognition technology:

>I love coming to these threads to watch the crowd who makes their living from invading the public's privacy attempt to rationalize their worldview, find loopholes, etc. If your job is mass surviellance, it has always been unethical and the law is catching up to you. The purpose of these kinds of laws isn't to bring your business in line - it's to put you out of business.

This looks like a cool project.

"The Open Book aims to be a simple device that anyone with a soldering iron can build for themselves. The Open Book should be comprehensible: the reader should be able to look at it and understand, at least in broad strokes, how it works. It should be extensible, so that a reader with different needs can write code and add accessories that make the book work for them."

I was going to work on WIA-ARIA tags, too, but it turns out SourceHut is already basically good to go because it's already built out of semantically relevant HTML components, does very little magic, and doesn't use JavaScript to fiddle with things at runtime

So I'm working on a static site generator for myself and I was curious about the generated page weight. A blank page with no content with the associated style.css weighs in at 2863 bytes. (Yes, bytes, not kilobytes)

Only CSS, HTML5, and an inlined blank favicon. Using semantic and accessible elements and styling, it's got nearly perfect a11y scores and renders well both on desktop and mobile and looks (IMO) quite good.

The web doesn't have to be bloated. Fight the bloat!

@nextcloud that's because you're the good guys and they are the bad guys.

I prefer to stay with the good guys! Thanks for all you've done for us!

been a long time since I did one of these! Only minor tweaks to the appearance, I'm still sticking to my tried-and-true with theming.

Throwing hand grenades on Times Square will also keep crimes from happening. Sooner or later, you will get a crook.

@randynose If only people would realize what they are actually doing.

@randynose I don't like this or Ring. The surveillance state is way too over bearing as it is.
Besides it's got nothing to do with "security". It's just another way to make money by using security as the tool. Do you really think he made that app thinking of security? Nope he was thinking of profit. The security is his back up angle for marketing.
Ring didn't have it in mind either.Screw people's privacy and freedom. Corp profits take priority above all!

Question: how do you keep up to date with news, consume news and fine new sources to follow?

Specifically tech, as that’s what I’m interested in, but could be anything really.

Just a little vent... Why is that so many left/socialist "things" (groups, media, podcasts etc) insist that the way to engage with them is "through our facebook group"? Not something here on the fediverse, not an RSS feed, not an email address... No, we need to engage through one of the worst examples of the capitalist world when all we want to do is to smash it. </vent>
