All servers for Fediverse softwares (Mastodon, Peertube, Pixelfed, etc.) are managed by people that do it only to offer an entry to the Fediverse.
These services won't track you, there is no advertisings and are fully respectful with your privacy.
You can help your favorite instance to keep working with a donation that will contribute to server charges.
They also need your help :)

google, privacy, e-mail, from :birdsite: 

Google started editing people's e-mails in GSuite, replacing links with a link through google.com:
mobile.twitter.com/sneakdotber
twitter.com/tblodt/status/1317

This means that Google will track a click on a link *in e-mail* even if you're using an external client.

I am *guessing* this is under the pretext of phishing protection, but it actually *creates* additional phishing risk for text-only clients, since now all links are google.com links.

people

if your software has:
- 30k files
- takes 2 hours to compile
- uses more than 8GB of memory when compiling
- does 30 things

that's not software, it's cancer

looking for work 

Nothing in the magic money app (email) except stuff I don't wanna do/am no longer qualified for (QA, Java), or spam for stuff I can't do (designer). Have to update LinkedIn and trawl that mess again.

Unless someone knows of a nice coding #job?

1. #Scheme
2. #Javascript front or back-end
3. #Python
4. #ObjectiveC (I'm not doing Swift)

Or, if you want me to keep doing indie #gamedev, a bunch of patrons would be awesome:

Is the birdsite having problems?

Something about capitalism that particularly grinds my gears is when corporations make threats to their business model illegal through shit like DRM and anti-piracy laws, halting egalitarian technological progress through the coercive force of the state.

We could all have full control of the technology we're sold and the information we have, for sharing, repairing and improving, with our current technology. The law and the interests of those in power are holding us back as much as old monarchs who tried banning the printing press for undermining their stranglehold on knowledge.

We could live in a world where technology serves us and not someone in a position of power, and where knowledge is freely available to everyone regardless of status, but capitalism, the state, and hierarchical debt arrangements which depend on coercion hold us back.

So fuck this shit, become a pirate and practice radical mutual aid with your favorite and most needful creators supporting them directly.

#piracy #anarchism

addendum:

If people just wait for the next DRM, the next antipiracy crackdown, etc instead of taking a social analysis with a stated ideal position and seeking it, then we're always on the back-foot trying to regather support for every slightly rehashed attack on autonomy. It is reactionary, and for every step forward there are two steps back. Take a position with a stated end goal and a way to identify threats to autonomy within an ideological framework before they have a chance to take hold, and we begin to have real power.

I want a society which doesn't embed social hierarchies in the operation of machines and seeks an egalitarian universal right to information for all. Not just another fight against new DRM laws.

His PC has 24GB of RAM but it still slowed down to a crawl. And the word on the street is, it's because of "Electron."

I can find hundreds of guides of how to migrate to/setup the cloud. Anyone know of guides doing the reverse, from the cloud to the in-house server?
TIA

So this whole "Bitwarden can run arbitrary code on your computer" thing @progo mentioned is not unique to Bitwarden, it's literally how every auto-updating piece of software works. Which means the problem is far bigger than just Bitwarden, it's a problem with modern software.
