Jonas Dressler: Towards GNOME Shell on mobile

This is really great and interesting work. When I had seen mockups previously, I had thought that they would shape the future of Phosh, but this is actual Mutter/GNOME Shell converging towards mobile!

@Rastal @privacyguides exactly - just because you want to keep something secret or private doesn't mean it's illegal - it's just nobody else's business.

Don't confuse privacy with secrecy. We know what happens in the bathroom, but you still close the door. That's because you want privacy, not secrecy. Everyone has something to hide, privacy is something that makes you human.

The EU Commission is planning automatic CSAM scanning of your private communication – or total surveillance in the name of child protection.

This would be the worst surveillance apparatus outside of China, and completely disproportionate.

Congratulations @iloth with your 1st place in the ! Your rocks, it truly is a !

Some people, emotionally fatigued by Covid, are understandably worried about starting the cycle all over again with Monkeypox. I did some reading, just trying to reassure myself, and found some info that helped quiet my mind.

We know a bunch about it, how it spreads, and how to vaccinate for it. who.int/news-room/fact-sheets/

And here's the latest vax study: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/

@RL_Dane interesting. I'm not a fan of boutique distros the main differentiators of which could be better provided as a package group in a bespoke repo.

But anyway this page they link to is super useful. I never heard of half of the things there; the sway-overview looks especially cool.

Saw this on Reddit.
Even if you don't use their .iso or script (I probably won't, at least not directly), it seems to be a great sample config and set of recommended helper utilities to get started with

I know Sway intends to be a drop-in replacement for / , but it always choked pretty badly on my config.

#MasteringEmacs is updated for #Emacs 28!

And #TIL from the site that ... Emacs has an ePUB mode. But of course.

davdunc: have you tried Emacs' nov.el mode for reading epubs? darn, didn't know it existed

> However, because it is an open format, you can use the excellent nov.el mode and read Mastering Emacs from inside Emacs!

I suppose it's as good a time as any to mention that I'm looking for work.

If anyone knows of any positions at their company, I'd be glad to have a heads-up about it.

I'm right at the start of what I hope is a transition to the cybersecurity field, and my skills would match most Tier 1-2 NOC and helpdesk roles, as well as junior SOC.

I'm looking for something 100% remote. Preferably not call-center, or at a company doing terrible stuff. I love internal IT support, but the self-study I've been doing has had a lot more to do with incident response and security monitoring.

But at this point, I just need a stable income doing something tech-related, full-time and permanent.

Boosts massively appreciated.

I have setup a Trunk instance for the #Dutch speakers.

Voor de Nederlands-taligen onder ons: de Trunk is bijna klaar. Suggesties voor lijsten hoor ik graag. Ook als je op de lijsten wilt.

Als je Trunk niet kent: het is een tool waar je mensen kunt zoeken om te volgen op de Fediverse.

Graag boosten als je NL-talige volgers hebt ;-)

Use outdoor lighting responsibly by only using it where it’s needed, when it’s needed, in the amount required, and no more. Make sure to use the lowest light level required, limit the amount of shorter wavelength (blue-violet) light, utilize controls (such as timers or motion sensors), and use shielding to target the light, so it does not spill beyond where it is needed.

Inventory your home lighting and get your Dark Sky Friendly Home Lighting certificate: https://idsw.darksky.org/activities/dark-sky-friendly-home/
