A somewhat older (2016) but still interesting article about the history of #Hubzilla. Also contains a biography of Mike Macgirvin the developer that started #Friendica, Hubzilla and #Osada. It's interesting to learn that Mike launched Mistpark, the predecessor of Friendica, before #Diaspora*.
Android question. Say if I were to use a firewall application like NetGuard that uses a "local vpn" would I be able to use it in conjunction with my VPN service, in this case Private Internet Access that is managed using the OpenVPN app. The other alternative is to root my device and install AFWall+.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, lovely community!
Good news, everyone! #introductions
Taking my first steps in the Fediverse, and you are all invited to the party!
I've been using Linux (Debian and Arch) for 15+ years now, and am admin for a small corporate setup, based on #Kerberos, #OpenLdap, #NFS, #Asterisk, #BorgBackup. I also wrote my own matter management application for lawyers in #PHP, #Postgresql and #jQuery.
I'm Interested in server admin, networking, security and programming. By day I am a lawyer in a Belgian FMCG company.
The end of #Win7 is coming!
I would rather chew broken glass! then use #Microsoft #Window10
So I will be leaving Windows for good & finding myself a good #Linux distro to replace #Windows7

Hey everyone, here from G+ as it's being killed off next August (if not before, who knows). May as well start now if you want to try to figure out where people are gonna be at, right?
I’m interested in #coffee, #wine, #bourbon, #beer, #food, #caturday, #dogs, #gaming, #geek, #introvert, #netflix, and #scifi. Don’t want to believe it but G+ is finally going away so trying other places.
