La lezione è che demagogia ed antipolitica non danneggiano le parti politiche.

Danneggiano le istituzioni democratiche.

Opporsi a demagogia ed antipolitica è obbligo prepolitico.

Non condivido.

Meno male che c'è la carta.

Ci fossero stati solo bit in un database Trump non sarebbe stato sconfessabile e i suoi 60 ricorsi indimostrabili.

E allora sì sarebbero stati cavoli amarissimi

"I agree", an interesting project from 2018 by Dima Yarovinsky were he printed “terms of service” of the leading online services that we use on a daily basis on A4 to show how small and helpless we are against those.

Finally, in 2020, 9.2.0 has been ported to .

Not a big achievement in the grand scheme of things, but still Jehanne is the first fork to run modern binutils and GCC.

Very bad ruling re #Assange and press freedom. The fact his extradition to the U.S. was ONLY rejected on mental health grounds and not PRIMARILY on press freedom grounds is absolute bs.

I hope it's not a way for this judge to shake the case just so that SHE doesn't go down in history books as have made the decision to extradite him, but that the U.S. hope is the higher court will reject the health grounds as she pretty much sided with the U.S. on the actual merits of the case.

uMatrix can sometimes block access to URL shorteners.

To get around this, I usually do "curl <url>" in a terminal and pick the long URL from the response.

Very cool -- is a new privacy-friendly Reddit frontend, similar to Invidious / YouTube, Bibliogram / Instagram, and Nitter / Twitter.

Source code:

- No JavaScript or ads
- All requests go through the backend, client never talks to Reddit
- Prevents Reddit from tracking your IP or JavaScript fingerprint
- Lightweight (teddit frontpage: ~30 HTTP requests with ~270 KB of data downloaded vs. Reddit frontpage: ~190 requests with ~24 MB)

“On one hand, citizens are asked to accept the possibility of being filmed under the pretext that they have nothing to fear if they have done nothing wrong. And at the same time the police refuse to be filmed, which is a right in every democracy”

What if web pages had to pay me every time theirJavascript ran on my computer and put my CPU to 100%

I think that would be fair

Question for network hackers (please boost).

What's the safest way to prove that the ethernet responding to a certain public IP (v4) is located in a certain nation (or at least continent)?

I mean, I can use a geolocation db but I guess it could be outdated. Trace routing the IP and geolocating each hop through the db? Maybe better but... is there an even better way?
