My kids love a game called Roblox. "Unfortunately" it just doesn't work on Linux. Oh no!

Boost if you can. Demand justice for Tony McDade, a black trans man who was shot five times in the back by a Tallahassee police officer.

My Fosstodon stickers turned up today. I’m really happy with them.

We have other designs too if you’re interested.

Following the #serverless trend, I propose to call virtual events #venueless events. You’re welcome.

I was interviewed by Vivaldi recently and the posted the blog today.

Because I frequently get frustrated with the code editors I've used and tried, I've been on the verge of making my own for a loooong time.

I've finally started working on _something_. I feel like I'm in way over my head here, but maybe I'll actually manage to make something that frustrates me less than what I'm using now? :crazy:

My "How to fight back against Google AMP" made it to the top of Hacker News yesterday few minutes after being submitted but was demoted as there's another "big thread from 6 months ago". It's a fine rule but AMP deserves to be talked about every day 🤣

PSA: Adguard DNS is down. I use it on my phone, and I suddenly found nothing worked on either wifi or cell data.

Kids, you should definitely make sure you like the URL structure you’re using on your blog _before_ you publish any posts.

Redirects are no fun to set up 😬

When a US President claims "We will strongly regulate, or close [down social media websites]", it is vindication that decentralization is an important tool for #freespeech and #privacy.

Please reach out to your political representative to voice your support for human rights and privacy.

Consider speaking out on all of your social media channels.

"It’s not just Ebay scanning your ports, there is allegedly a network of 30,000 websites out there all working for the common aim of harvesting open ports, collecting IP addresses, and User Agents in an attempt to track users all across the web. "

Excellent investigating:

Invading your computer and privacy with security through obfuscation to "prevent fraud".

All this does is collect and store more personal data without consent so it can be breached one day.


Day 32 of the series:

Port knocking is really something I expected to take off like wild fire, but it never did. Hard to believe for such a cool idea.

Insomnia is an incredible free to Postman.

I cannot believe I am just discovering this marvel.

Day 30 of the series:

I feel like I got a little bit preachy in this one, but it's something I'm passionate about. I think it's time to go back to the Internet the way it used to be.

Day 29 of the challenge:
