*** No Carrier ***

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you

Trying out Nextcloud Desktop Sync for the first time. MEGAsync hangs the entire system for maybe 10-15 minutes (what a shame) before Linux terminate it automatically, so I have uninstalled it.

It's super nice! Nextcloud Desktop Sync is better than I was hoping for 😊 I'm longing so much for the day I have enough savings for a 10 TB or 14 TB to my server ❤️

But I have 1 question. How easy is it for a mechanic hard drive that are designed for servers/NAS to fail/crash? I'll buy Seagate/WD.

The National Museum of Computing, on the Bletchley Park campus, is to reopen in early September. And in the meanwhile, they present a 3D virtual tour - I've collected some links to particular points of interest - but there's a lot more in there, including ICL, Elliott, lots of microcomputers.

This is one of the Feral cats that visits. - They seem to visit a lot less than they used to. 😾

I called this one Cheeto due to a couple of yellow Cheeto spots on her back..

Hey! 👋 I’m a High School student interested in free software and software development. I’m currently learning Python.

Got the Pi's and the Bird Cams setup on the "TV"... enjoys watching them, and watching the cat watch them...
But now it's time to go fix breakfast. 🥓 🍳

Eyyy, so to introduce myself.

I'm a minimalist and I like keeping simple things simple.

Been doing web dev for over ten years and I try to avoid dependencies whenever possible. Vanilla CSS with some JavaScript that's lean is better than any framework.

Code itself is technical debt. Less code is less debt.

Hobbies include laying on my couch thinking I should be more productive, writing long winded essays, staring at my always growing pile of books, and trying to find fellow humans online.

This should become a case for an outside camera 📸... When I get the time.

So much wonderful stuff on f-droid. I wonder if there are more FOSS like it

When you're done watching @thegibson , @drwho , @ryen, @c0debabe explain how to regain your data and the web, please consider taking a look at my workshop on creating a portable homelab in about an hour: scheduler.hope.net/hope2020/ta
