You know what I want, I want a better option when some site says, "to access this file we need to see and download your entire address book". I want more than "yes" or "no". I want "lie to it." Give it an address book full of noise. Tell Dropbox I only know one person, but he's the Pope."

Did you know that you can now link your account to #GitHub and #GitLab.com (fully optional)? This allows to assign migrated content to your account and a quick login via M$ GH.

- register a normal account (if not already done)
- click the "Link Account" section on the sign in page
- authorize Codeberg via a third-party service
→ migrated content from these platforms will be linked to your account
→ you can now login via these services, too (Warning: they will learn about each login)

I'd like to start publishing some of my photography. I use Lightroom to edit raws and export to high resolution 20-40MB JPEGs. What's the easiest way for me to share them with the world? Paid services are ok.

⚠️ Important news

There's a new @fdroidorg app called #AirGuard protecting you from being tracked by AirTags.

It scans your surroundings for devices that someone might have put into your pocket to track you via #Apple's #FindMy surveillance network and alerts you if a device is following you.

Download it here: 🔗 f-droid.org/packages/de.seemoo

Given the level of technology we have today, if your system does not provide adequate sustenance, accommodation, education, and healthcare for all, it is not because it can’t; it’s because it is designed not to.

It is so nice when technology works.

Got myself some train tickets (I like trains! 🚆 ), confirmation went to my e-mail address which I self-host using @yunohost.

I read the e-mail in the Mail app on my @nextcloud instance (on the same yunohost server), and of course it helpfully suggested I add the travel dates and relevant info into my Nextcloud calendar.

We *can* have nice things. Anyone who says #FLOSS cannot be user-friendly is lying through their teeth.

There's a place in San Francisco called Envelop where you buy a ticket to sit in a mostly dark room with only a handful of people, listening to an album start to finish on a finely calibrated audio system. Cell phones aren't allowed and you're asked to not talk or disrupt.

It's such a unique way to enjoy full albums where you dedicated time to do nothing but that. Last night I went to listen to BT's "This Binary Universe". I think I'll prioritize going more often.

love those 50s jazz records where they recorded the whole band with like, a single microphone, always placed directly inside the bell of the trumpet, with a nearby piano facing the other direction, the bass player a few flights up the stairwell of the studio, and the drum kit set up at a different venue across the road or sometimes even on the back of a truck, idling in traffic on the other side of town

I decided to use blop for my blog. Looks to be very good software with no bloat. Thanks for all the recommendations from the fediverse. :ablobcatattention:

PARENTS! Are YOUR children dabbling in MONARCHISM? KNOW THE SIGNS!

- Powdered Wigs
- White Face Makeup
- Beauty Marks
- Conspicuous Usage of the Plural First-Person

Every year HUNDREDS of America’s hopeful youth turn to THE MONARCHY for “kicks”. This vice quickly turns to desolation as the schoolyard is subinfeudated via patrilineal succession. Left untreated, the Monarchy will become an ARISTOCRACY, resulting in sterilization and/or death!

Internet is a place where:

People sharing corporation's "property" is compared to attacking ships (piracy)

Corporations sharing between them user's data is "respecting their privacy" and "improving their services"

🤦🏻‍♂️

"During [the canal's] three centuries it needed virtually no maintenance, it relied on no engines or fuel, no mining, no metals, no chemicals. There was no pollution, the boats could be hand built. ... It did not cause any emissions or erosion, it saved millions of man hours otherwise spent on ... roads. There were no accidents: at walking speed and thirty centimeter depth it was safe enough to have children playing in the middle of it with boats coming and going."
