From the keynote of the 22nd European Police Congress:

"I understand why the Darknet can be useful in autocratic systems. But in a free, open democracy, in my opinion, there is no legitimate benefit. If you use the Darknet, you are usually up to no good. This simple realization should also be reflected in our legal system."

@geekygent @mb @PaulFranz I'll start slowly with basic GitHub usage in CLI and then move on from there(selfhost). I saw they have nice guides. Went thru them and I get the general idea how it works. By solutions I meant providers. Thanks for all great ideas๐Ÿ˜€

@geekygent @mb I'm just looking for a place to start coding and learn git in the process. Gitea looks nice and lightweight. I have some SBCs running that I could put it on localy to start coding and testing๐Ÿ™‚

#SelfHosting and #CommunityHosting are when you run your own server for yourself or your community. This means you can have full control over whatever services run from that server, for example email or social networking.

It has traditionally been quite difficult to run a server, but there are a number of projects on the Fediverse that are trying to make it easier:

My spouse and I celebrate Valentines Day on the 15th when everything is half price. Her view on it was "I want you to show me you love me everyday, not just one day a year because card companies told you to."

#Searx is an open source search engine which combines results from 70 other search engines while stripping away their trackers.

You can try it out on any public Searx instance, for example:

If you run a server, you can also install your own Searx instance:

It also works through @torproject if you want an extra layer of privacy.

@politicalcustard Depending on your commitment, the ghacks user.js is worth checking out. You need to set up essentially a custom whitelist; it can be a overwhelming at first but it's worth it in the long run.

Perhaps worth checking into:
* Redirect AMP to HTML
* Skip Redirect
* Neat URL
* Smart Referer
* CanvasBlocker
* CSS Exfil Protection

Maybe also Stylus and Violentmonkey...

You can probably use just uMatrix or UBlock Origin, not both. And Disconnect is redundant.

Calling all #Fediverse admins of instances in the #EU. The #CopyrightDirective is coming, we need to show the MEPs how massively the EU Internets will be affected.

We are preparing a list of all EU-based #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, and any other instances.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

My company in wich I work uses Windows Server 2016, Win10 for desktops, Edge, MS Office and so on... I can't install anything on my laptop, I can't connect any other laptop/PC to network and we have a very bad LTE signal, when I write very bad, I mean very bad. Can I do anything privacy wise or am I screwed? Is there anything that I could run on Win10 from USB stick? Any ideas?
