Looked into (security relevant) default settings of vanilla MX Linux install and documented my findings. Depending on feedback, I might look into other #linux (desktop) distros as well.

I never actually used the phrase "surfing the web" before, as I've grown up mostly on social media feeds, but now that I'm going down open source rabbit holes and exploring personal sites from fediverse users, I can see what it's all about:

Riding a wave of websites, code, and people across the internet

Just read response to Moxie by André Staltz of #SSB / #Manyverse:

Think when it comes to #Fediverse then the #SocialHub community made a good start, but to take it further there's need for dedicated people to keep the innovation processes going and towards #interoperability and #interconnectivity

Forging something that rises beyond apps and into #SocialFabric formation. Something where everyone can find their place.

The people who don’t want you to run your own servers are the ones who want to run the servers.

People will happily run their own servers if it’s so simple to do that they don’t even know they’re doing it.

I'm liking the look of Relic Space a purporting to be a combo of space combat and turn based combat, whilst managing factions & missions collecting relics from the galaxy.

It's developed by the same team who made (the groovey aliens/space marine roguelike)

What I Got Wrong About Julian Assange

"The problem was I also wrote that Assange dumped the Iraq and Afghan war logs on the internet without redacting names. I was wrong and lazy in repeating that slur which appeared whenever you Googled #Assange’s name. That must make it true, right?"

Dean Yates was Baghdad bureau chief for Reuters from Jan.2007 to Oct.2008.

Too rare to read a journalist admitting that they've been wrong!!

GOG has a bunch of free games to stay home and pass the time gog.com/partner/free_games

Some classics and some modern stuff. Can recommend Samorost if you want a neat puzzle/adventure game.

Converted AberMUSH to snake case. AberMUSH was really the first Python program of any size that I mostly wrote, and so the code is comically messy in places. Over time I am adding more DnD-like rules, and also trying to give the universe more depth. gitlab.com/bashrc2/AberMUSH
