Facebook and other tech companies have shown, time and again, that they will act in the interest of profits rather than defend the privacy of their customers. We must uphold and strengthen privacy laws across the country. eff.org/deeplinks/2018/12/face

US Ballistic Missile Systems Have No Antivirus, No Data Encryption, and No 2FA, DOD Report Finds

So my desktop has 32 CPUs and 64 gigs of memory, and 2x nvme 960 pro in RAID 1 configuration. Not to mention 4x Vega 64 water cooled frontier edition graphics card (for OpenCL work).

I'm not even sure I can call this thing a Desktop Computer anymore, its more like a low-end supercomputer. No matter what I throw at it it responds instantly. What a fucking beast!

The only thing I have against is that it uses an older version of Mastodon, and the source code isn't displayed anywhere I could find.

@fatboy
People is okay with no such thing as "privacy" and they are willing to give away for their privacy and liberty for temporary glitters...

While the people who advocates for privacy are made as "Outcasts"....

If Tor disappeared, what would happen?

Not only would millions lose access, but the diverse ecosystem of privacy, security, and anti-censorship applications that rely on the Tor network would cease to function.

An entire ecosystem relies on Tor. blog.torproject.org/strength-n

Dear FOSS Community,

We need to make people aware of the Googles, Facebooks and Microsoft of this world. Tell them about FOSS software, get them to use the apps first then we switch them to Linux.
The time is now.

Gru is 14 feet tall and can move at 200 meters per second.

Now before any of you block me for shitposting hear me out. First according to the height of a Minion (which is 3.5 feet on average) Gru is 4 minions tall, which means he is a godly size of 14 feet tall. Second if any of you remember the original Despicable Me, you Know there is a scene when Vector kidnaps the three girls and shoots a series of heat-seeking misses at Gru, he then dodge them all. According to the speed of an average ballistic missile (1900 mph) and the size of the missile according to his ankle size, Gru can perceive and move at such a speed that the missiles only move 9.5 miles per hour, 0.5% of their original speed. Plus after this Gru punches a shark and it is paralyzed meaning its spine is probably shattered, to remind you it would require a force greater than 3,000 newtons to fracture the spine. That’s equal to the impact created by a 500-pound car crashing into a wall at 30 miles per hour. I rest my case.

Nice explanation of how a post reaches one of your timelines.

Hi all, I'm a software engineer, and I'm happy to join the Fediverse! I do a good bit of DevOps work; FOSS makes my life easier. #introduction #programming #foss

Someone just gave me a computer to fix. The software is screwed up because of a Windows 10 update. Guess what I am going to do with it. ;-)

I just had a lot of fun teasing an extreme conservative on diaspora* with a friend. diasp.org/posts/10726955 Read it, and try not to laugh. :-)

If you're feeling stuck, try to mix it up. Throw in something unexpected. You never know what could happen.

I am thinking about maybe installing Gentoo sometime.

I’d tell you a Fibonacci joke, but it’s probably as bad as the last two you’ve heard combined.
