I had to go in to the office this morning briefly, and on my way from the carpark, I met a family of 5 Bush Stone-Curlews, one of which I photographed.

Then, when I got home again, the King Parrots were waiting for Lunch.

Does anybody know of a privacy-focused alternative to Mailchimp? I've got a mailing list I'd like to setup, but just want to send email, I don't want to subject recipients to location tracking, "predicted demographics", and all that garbage.

Again and again I am surprised how Spanish administrations pioneer the transition to using #FreeSoftware ecosystems inside Europe:

"Rianxo is a municipality with 12,000 inhabitants on the northwest coast of Spain, in the autonomous community of Galicia. The town’s public service, comprising between 60 and 80 staff depending on the season, switched entirely to open source in 2014, over a period of just one month."

The 9.5a11 alpha version of @torproject's browser ships with support for announcing your Onion site from your regular website via the "Onion-Location" HTTP header. For Nginx users: `add_header Onion-Location x.onion$request_uri;` and you're done.

Screw docker and your stupid network design.

I want to have a nice set of different compose files and the inter networking cockamamie is annoying the hell out of me!

I'm looking for a cable modem that runs free software. Does this exist?

I'm specifically trying to avoid a modem + router combo; WLAN technology changes at a more rapid pace than modem technology, and I'd like to be able to upgrade my router and modem separately.

But I'd get a combo if I had to.

Apparently I must be isolation bored as I just wrote another blog post. Two in one day? After 1 last year?

Here's a teaser image of the next blog post.

I'm showing my friends this weekend.

Does the have some configuration settings or items I should check off to ensure everyone has a good time?

i just joined and noticed it's tough to find active people to follow. has built themed lists, which are a great start, but many accounts are stale and there's a lot of clicking to navigate online.

so last night i played with 's API and packaged up some filtering and automation into /#selenium so all i have to do is 1 click confirm. i put it on gh this morning for other like me.
