Quick thread about how to install :openbsd: on Scaleway's Elastic Bare Metal offering... Because compared to cloud, metal is more... 🤘🎸

First, order a new Elastic Metal server. Even the cheap ones are pretty good! No need to pick an image.

@douginamug Not an answer, but Whatsapp and Element are basically on the same side of the spectrum. Yes Element is open source and in theory uses an open protocol, but it's still a giant VC company that built its supposedly open protocol as a way to shut down other open protocols and then only created a "foundation" to manage it later after a lot of criticism (and the foundation is controlled by all the same people who control the company). Anyways, rant over, but I'd stay away from Matrix.

What Do YOU Think? 

When you see a book is in the Public Domain, do you find it more or less valuable?

Can free software/open source/hacky software projects stop using fucking discord as
1. Their primary community
2. Their main support network
3. Documentation

Its genuinely madness the mental gymnastics that community maintainers must have to go through to contribute to open software and then allow this proprietary dogshit to monopolize their communities communication, support and documentation.

One of my work mates has been implementing support for extensions to #GNOME Web (a.k.a. Epiphany): blog.tingping.se/2022/06/29/We

This has been made possible because at #Igalia we want more of us to dogfood a WebKit-based browser, and the number one complaint was “but, I miss extension $XYZ”. Luckily, being an owner-based coop we can *choose* ourselves to invest time in things like these :pika:

Hey fediverse, I've recently created a privacy recommendations site (see previous posts) and since I want it to be community based, I need a place to discuss what should be recommended.

Something like a forum, but self-hosting a forum requires a lot of spam moderation and that's something I'd like to avoid.

There's also Lemmy (a federated and libre Reddit alternative) but it's JS heavy. I'm considering the possibility of a mailing list.

I want to hear your opinions, boosts appreciated

As I announced earlier, I've been working on an alternative to PrivacyTools, PrivacyGuides, etc. All of them target non technical users, have sponsors and affiliate links.

The Privacy Raccoon - Digital Self-defense against mass surveillance

It's not finished yet, there's a lot of work to do. But I wanted to announce it so people can contribute to it. If you're interested in contributing, go here:

For those that had my old PGP key, I've migrated my OS but my backup USB drive with the key died, so please update it with the new one:

After a little break, we are now continuing to work on our and finished our .

We have also added a new page for our via Uptime Kuma.


guide will follow as usual.

Have a good

Btw this site will be something like a wiki so anybody will be able to contribute.

It requires a lot of work keeping up to date with recommendations and guides, I hope that there are some people willing to help.

I'm also working in a site similar to privacytools.io or privacyguides.org but with real privacy recommendations and guides.

Both of those sites recommend well known privacy violators like Cloudflare or fake privacy initiatives like Duckduckgo, Protonmail, Tutanota and Signal.

I think that some people in the privacy community will find valuable a resource without stupid recommendations just because they're more "user friendly".

I've updated my Pale Moon guide with a mitigation for CSP reports, just in case there was someone interested.
