If you use on , you may experience the following problems:
- Slow boot time
- Huge delay before internet connectivity

Unfortunately, there's nothing much we can do about it. Once again, this shows how wants to lock their users in an environment without letting them the possibility to escape.

Supporting big hosts file is not that much of a challenge, it works like a charm on most POSIX compliant systems. But M$ wants to track you and they'll always try to do so.

took in almost $88 million in revenue during the last quarter and posted net losses of more than $25 million.

That's a bit hard to fathom, hosting a based
product that loses that much money in the face of so much income, not to mention that part of that revenue comes from customers who self-host.

But now this...

Gitlab always smelled bad to me, and for those who fled to go there instead of hosting their own instances, well?

Anyone having good recommendations for lists here (preferably FOSS)?
I'm trying to add new ones to tblock.codeberg.page/repositor :)

Introducing TBlock 2.2.0

The update brings exciting new features and fixes. We're really happy to publish this new version, because it is the first time we actually received contributions from people who use our software.

The time has come. My project @tblock has now more followers than I have on the ! I think it's a great success🎉🎉

So apparently TBlock is available for Hyperbola GNU/Linux-Libre, but the package is REALLY outdated and nobody seems to be maintaining it. Hmmmm🤔

TBlock is a free open source platform-independent ad-blocker, which can also block trackers, malware etc. You can follow at:

➡️ @tblock

The project's website is at tblock.codeberg.page

If you want to make sure that no filter list can block another one's source, you should definitely try our new Allowlist:

tblock.codeberg.page/repositor

We just published a candidate of our ad-blocker. A would be much appreciated.

codeberg.org/tblock/tblock/rel

To it, simply download the tarball, extract it and then run "make && sudo make install".

We call on people in positions of power in their FOSS communities to stop using GitHub and stop recommending it. GitHub, as a proprietary, trade-secret platform cannot be the singular development community for FOSS projects.

If you want to know how this works I recommend you watch this video - youtube.com/watch?v=KA6A3oeocH

TBlock basically does the same thing, but automates this entire process for you, and you're also able to subscribe to multiple blocklists as well, not just the one shown on that video. TBlock can also update and sync the blocklist as well :)

@tblock is a system-wide ad & tracker blocker, I just installed it on my system and it works like a charm 😀

Its currently just a CLI program, I like that minimalism. But they're also working on making a GUI for this if you're interested ;)

Dear users, in case you didn't notice yet, there is a version of our package on the .

A reminder for those of you who happen to be unlucky enough to live in the US right now with #RoeVsWade overturned:

Uninstall any proprietary period tracking apps you might have – they *will* snitch on you.

Use drip instead, its fully open source and doesn't include trackers[1].

Oh... but what's that?
Wait... wouldn't it be the first steps of a for TBlock? Not sure though... 😜
