Use a mask, use Tor.

Today we’re launching our year-end campaign centered on the ways we can care for ourselves and our community: by masking up and using Tor. Anonymity loves company, after all.

Help resist the surveillance pandemic. #UseAMaskUseTor

@freemo Checked Piwigo and it also doesn't support HEIF formats :(

@freemo Thanks!

I don't have a complex use-case, I just need a photo/video storage/organizer. I have the files in personal NextCloud instance, but their Photos application doesn't really work (it's not detecting picture, very limited on how I can organize media).

I'm thinking about hosting an instance of MediaGoblin to keep my photos organized. Any good or bad experiences? Suggestions? Alternatives?

@kensanata Just read your post on Swiss Exceptionalism. +1

Being a migrant in CH it's interesting to see the confusion in some acquaintance's faces when the pedestal they were standing on when criticizing my country of origin is now shown to be false preconceptions.

People watched “Social Dilemma” and somehow came out with the idea that traditional media (TV, newspapers, radio) is immune to those problems and hasn’t gone down the same road ?!?!

Working from office: Learn how to disconnect from work to be with family.

Working from home: Learn how to disconnect from family to concentrate on work.

The second one was a much greater challenge.

My 6yo son yesterday during family boardgame time:
"Dad are we in my brain?"
"What do you mean son?"
"What if I'm sleeping and dreaming all of you? What if you are sleeping and I'm just one of your dreams?"

Woah, I wasn't prepared to discuss this so early, but we had a great time.

Looking for an EPUB reader for my tablet with a single use case: reading EPUB books.
No analytics. No crash reports. No sync. No cloud access.
Let me read my book, alone.

@2ck In the article I noticed how the focus was more on the workflow, but the criticism was focused on the plain text nature of the workflow.

And I might be getting too old to handle pure criticism from someone without putting their skin in the game. If the plain text is the issue, maintain a service which converts to plain text and offer it to newcomers. If the tools are the issue, then write better ones. Example, Linus writing git because BitKeeper had its issues.

Without good proposals and skin in the game, the criticism in received a lot more like disrespect (for what has worked for so long) and looks like a power-grab move.

@2ck Apparently this is a requirement by law to provide such report yearly.

Yes, near Zürich. What about you?

My energy provider sent me this nice report with the source type breakdown. More information for better decision making.

I'm looking for a keyboard with the following:
* MX Green switches
* Backlit
* 87+ keys
* Heavy body
* In stock (or deliverable before end of September)

Preferably:
* PBT keycaps
* USB-C interface

Lunduke's argument should cause some discomfort:

if you're out there defending the replacement of master/slave terminology because it *reminds* people of slavery, but at the same time use a MacBook, an iPad or an iPhone, which are produced by slave-like labor, you should rethink some choices.

First recommendation for today's playlist.
Come on YouTube, why do you want to see me cry this early in the morning?

On the bird site I see some people praising Parler as an alternative. Alternative to what? Definitely not centralization and the consequences of it.
