My `e` key does not work reliably anymore. 🙈 That sucks since i am currently writing a lot of documentation.

My project for today is to modularize my configuration.nix in order to make it more reusable. Ideally (when setting up a new nix machine) i am just importing a bunch of different nix files depending on the use case.

Remember kids:

Got my first vaccine today. The worst part of it? Getting soaked on my way hope because it was raining like mad.

#Mythos: Nichts zu verbergen? Gute Argumente von #Digitalcourage, warum dieser Satz unklug, unsolidarisch u geschichtsvergessen ist

+ wer nicht weiß, welche Daten über einen gesammelt werden, weiß nicht, ob er etwas zu verbergen hat

+ es ist unklug, auf die Herrschaft über etwas zu verzichten, dessen Wert man nicht kennt

+ seine Daten preiszugeben nimmt einem die Chance, es sich später anders zu überlegen

= selbst u differenziert entscheiden 👍😉

@aral Thanks for streaming the small web today. It was very informative and fun to watch :) And also thanks for using owncast instead of proprietary streaming services.

Someone linked this picture in an irc channel today. :) Since it was the direct link, the original poster is unknown to me. I just know that it is from birdsite.

Today is a good day to look through your passwords. Maybe change a few that are too easy/similar and also to close a few accounts that you are not using anymore.
