@hrthu Yes, Just wipe down and select "Do Not disturb". Then you select "Priority Only" > "Priority Only allows" > Calls then select "Starred contacts only"
You then have to star all those people in your "inner circle"

Yeah, well Aral’s my name as a human being and my petroleum company namesake can go take a flying fuck because trademark law does not apply. First time I’m seeing this notice. The Internet is for people not corporations. Maybe it’s time we remembered that and starting implementing laws to ensure it before we lose it altogether.

What’s worse? I Want My Name showed it to me as taken when it wasn’t. WTF, folks? Going to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume it’s a bug.

According to a survey of over 30,000 developers, these are the top 25 people who will have the most influence in tech, and we're not surprised to find RMS, founder of the FSF, on the list. But please remember, we advocate #freesoftware, not open source!

What's the best way to run a Mastodon poll, that I would like to be visible on 3 different instances? It is likely uninteresting for the rest of the fediverse. Note, that I am not located on either of those instances (it is about certain translation-related choices of Fedilab for my mother tongue).

I decided to create a small survey to ask a few non-personal questions about Fediverse users, their opinions on its various platforms, and their thoughts on non-Fediverse networks, such as Facebook and Twitter.

The survey is oriented at people who currently use the Fediverse, and does not provide any way of saying that you do not currently use it.

If you’d like to participate in the survey, you can do so here. It opens at midnight on the 13th of May at midnight AEST (12th of May, 2pm UTC), and closes one month later on the 13th of June. I’ll be posting the results every now and then until it closes.

Please answer honestly, and send it to your friends if you’d like them to participate too! :mlem:

@ChrisWere @unfa @gcrkrause one thing I've been interested in doing involves holding a survey for PeerTube content creators to fill out, with information on where their channels are, and what they're making.

It would ultimately serve as a rudimentary directory for users to find channels to subscribe to. I think something like that could help bootstrap the early PeerTube community into something where creators and viewers can get connected together.

I've just inherited a Dell XPS 17 with Quad-Core i7 CPU with 8 GB, good battery and a broken screen. After booting up I can see everything on an external display, Broken as in I can't see anything on it. I wonder if a docking station would allow me to boot it such that I can see everything on an external display, including the BIOS/UEFI phase. If yes, which docking station would you recommend? (as far as I could see there isn't one like for the Latitude E-series)

If you're on Mastodon and know the web address of someone on the Fediverse, you can use this to follow them.

1. Copy their profile's web address into the Mastodon search box (see screenshots).

2. Click search, this should bring up a link to the profile and a follow button next to it.

3. Click follow!

This works with many kinds of Fediverse addresses including PixelFed, PeerTube and others. Try it!

You can also use this technique with web addresses of individual posts.

Sundar Pichai trying to paint himself as the champion of the poor man’s privacy isn’t even the main problem here: a Big Tobacco CEO would love to be seen as the champion of your health and ditto a Big Oil CEO as defender of the environment.

A. Privacy is not a good, it is a human right

B. Google is a surveillance capitalist; its business model is diametrically opposed to respecting privacy

C. Google protects *their* information, not yours, because that’s what your information becomes once they have it: their asset

"Die iX kam zu dem Fazit, dass ein sicherer, datenschutzkonformer Betrieb von Office 365 nach europäischem Recht und gemäß DSGVO nicht möglich sei. Auch eine vom niederländischen Justizministerium in Auftrag gegebene Untersuchung endete mit der Aussage, dass Microsoft mit seiner Enterprise-Version Office 2016 Pro Plus massenhaft gegen die europäische Datenschutzgrundverordnung (DSGVO) verstößt."

Jo hi! Habe alle Eure Wünsche berücksichtigt (war nicht schwer, weil leider habt Ihr keine geschickt). Trotzdem noch etliches hinzugefügt, korrigiert etc. – und gerade eben die (vorerst) finale Fassung hochgeladen:

Mozilla Firefox :firefox: – expired immediate signing certificate results in many disabled extensions:

– users report that many of their Firefox extensions are disabled
– some "security" people recommend to turn off the check for signatures → we don't recommend this at all (it's like ignoring any other certificate error which is insecure in most cases)

GNU Guix 1.0 is out!

Proud to have been a part of the project since 2013. I haven't been active in awhile, but I have contributed a lot of packages, a Linux container implementation, a build system for programs written in Ruby, importer tools for PyPI and RubyGems, the 'guix environment' and 'guix publish' tools, and probably some small stuff I've forgotten.

I once asked at work "What do we do if one of these cloud providers that's critical in our production pipeline one day decides to just stop doing business with us?"

I was told "You're paranoid, that'll never happen".

It just happened.
