@dokuja I will chat with you on Com mode on sdf.org later perhaps?

To others:

Hello!?

Free unix shell account. Free ssh. Free gopher. Free website. Free...

Free as in freedom and free as in free beer. Both!

I’m by myself this evening, so I’m watching starship troopers with dinner.

This is my first time watching this flick, and I don’t know what I expected, but a parody of fascism isn’t it.

I think youtube-dl would fit in between the wheel and the electric bulb in the top three human inventions.

I do as much of my browsing as i can in elinks which makes it possible to get along with less RAM. There are still plenty of very poorly designed sites that just won't render correctly or at all. I just switch over briefly to a graphical browser. It is slightly inconvenient but it is possible to live happily with 2GB or even 1GB this way.

This is a very nice intro to getting #LetsEncrypt certs for your site via acme-client on #OpenBSD by @romanzolotarev

romanzolotarev.com/openbsd/acm

acme-client.conf Allows the "include" keyword so you can add many domains at once too

I think I'm going to try this for my own setup. I'm eager to move all my sites off of hosted providers

@aral @vulpesvulpes

This is getting difficult :/

-Google is worst option, trying to steer people away from that

-Other large companies (MS Bing etc) aren't any better than Google

-Qwant part-owned by corporation

-Startpage run by people with perhaps dubious intentions

-SearX is a bit overwhelming for non-technical users

...that leaves DuckDuckGo, but I don't want to steer everyone to one site, because sooner or later it may be compromised :/

Wow, @njal_la automatically detecting your PGP key to encrypt emails is the sweetest thing I've seen this week! More providers should do this, especially for sensitive emails. t.co/mUbuJssxga

tbh everyone who can make sense of URLs should use #NoScript in their #browser
I've been using it with #Firefox and it un-fucks a whole lot of sites

Kino.social is a quiet site where you can watch nice films without any distractions or tracking:

kino.social

All of the movies are creative commons or public domain titles, embedded from either PeerTube or Archive.org. (There are no YouTube titles due to YT's invasive privacy policies.)

The selection is still very small as we've just started, and we're trying to avoid the "firehose" approach of archive.org.

Post a reply if you have suggestions for films to be added.

FBI Forced Suspect to Unlock His iPhoneX Through Face ID

This is why biometrics are NOT secure. Biometrics should be treated as a UserID, and NOT as a password

Oh nice! It seems you can now download #PeerTube videos with youtube-dl. I swear that app is magic.

At least folks who have playback issues can make use of that.

Additional with MPV and youtube-dl installed, you can just run the command
$ mpv {video url}
to play the video directly through MPV player.

email should be kinda fun like a postcard or something but what it actually turned out to be was a to-do list any fucker can add to
