As #GoogleIsEvil, G👀gle does evil things. This time they want every website, to OPT OUT of their spyware by setting a specific HTTP header.
So some people are (thinking of) sending patches to all the webserver software maintainers and urging every FUCKING SITE on the internet to apply that HTTP header.
Are you fucking INSANE?
How about creating a new HTTP status/error code:
"666: Fuck off G👀gle"
and return that to every user using #Google Chrome
Adapting the internet to G👀gle's whims 🤦
Finally, after 4 years in my todo list , I found the time to create the #Friendly #Router Project website... What the idea? Well, create a database of practically all #opensource friendly #hardware which can be used as switches, routers or firewalls. Would also like to share the configuration, test and benchmark...
I even have a mascot, say hello to Switchy! https://friendly-router.org/
Curious to hear from whoever voted O(n^4). Did I miss a factor?
Only one person had any insight on this? 👀
As I understand the problem, it's O(n^3). One n for the amount of nodes downloading the entire blockchain. A second n for the amount of users transacting on the blockchain. And a third n for the amount of counterparties for them to transact with (more counterparties = proportionally higher chance to do tx on btc instead of fiat).
Excited about #ForgeFed but unsure what the status is? 😅
Want to help but unsure how? 🤔
Wondering what's separating us from having a fediverse of forges? 🤓
How do we, the free software community, stop depending on proprietary centralized tools and switch over to a free, by-the-people, decentralized hosting and collaboration platform?
I have an idea: Let's start doing biweekly/monthly community meetings! What do you think?
Please vote, and also comment and share your thoughts 😊
Well, it took a while but my petition to keep strong encryption without backdoors legal in th EU is now open for supporters!
Please feel free to support it and or boost/promte it
RPF thought it was good to blog about 'it' after all:
.. by a M$ snake-oil sales representative.
"VS Code is a free, open source developer text editor"
That is "free" as in beer, not freedom. And yes, the code is available, so technically open source, but you can't distribute the binary.
So technically he isn't lying.
But this also proves you (still) can't trust anything that comes from M$.
And shame on #RPF for giving this credence.
Compartmentalization is not without downsides. If you use proprietary social media as your primary way of sharing information with your peers, then you are opening an attack vector for being censored.
Even if you have alts/backup accounts on open platforms, you are likely not to want to link them to your person. Sharing evidence collected by your person from these accounts becomes much harder.
It's becoming more and more visible that censorship-resistance should be the default.
