Older, non-commercially available video games that require servers to play should not be illegal to preserve. Many thanks to @TheMADE and others who fought to expand the DMCA exemptions for video game archivists this year. eff.org/deeplinks/2018/11/expa

@ericbuijs @kelbot re-using devices is great! Not only for reducing waste & rare minerals mining.

#LowTechMagazine seems pretty popular here, so perhaps you've already read it. But here is an article on the energy costs of manufacturing devices lowtechmagazine.com/2009/06/em

It’s funny. The number of people who think *I’m* crazy for not buying anything today.

I don’t need anything extra, therefore I don’t buy anything. My wife is keeping an eye out for some kids stuff for Christmas... that’s it.

What a concept.

“The outdoor scenery paints a picture of a simpler time in the area and adds to the hip, underground vibe within.

Would go again.

I’ll throw in “the changelog” as well. There was a mastodon episode a month or 2 back.

@mike @pranav @kev @porus Although I do agree with @mike statement that in the mobile space it is inescapable you're being spied. Personally I avoid the "resistance is futile" attitude and try to protect my privacy and my data as good as I can e.g. by making better informed choices in software (how laughable that may seem).

Windows 10 is an atrocious, clunky, privacy invading, resource hogging piece of bantha shit!

That is all.
I feel better now. 😤

@Matter While I agree 💯 , it's hard for me to put myself in his shoes in 2000 and say without a shadow of doubt, "I would have told them to fuck off and hung up." when I got that phone call. I certainly wouldn't cooperated today.

It's a question of integrity, and I don't think he made the right choice, but hindsight is 20/20. I would hope that he is a little remorseful... I know I'd be.

I posted it not because I find him to be a hero - I simply find his experience/account to be interesting

New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.

Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.

It will take some work.

If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.

Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.

Interesting read I found on a crypto mailing list.

"Please listen carefully and don’t hang up.

Those were the first words this unknown male caller said to me when my brother handed me the phone."

Crowd-sourcing taints the pool significantly here. You end up with things like DISCORD appearing, and Dropbox listed above Nextcloud.

How is "privacy-friendly", and "tracking" being defined here?

If you just want to say, "Here are some alternatives to Google's service." that's fine, but "privacy centric without tracking" is pushing it in my opinion.

Some are legit, though.
