PSA: Stop labelling people interested in OPSEC and privacy as "paranoid". Paranoia is a mental illness, heavily influenced by fear, that makes someone believe they're under constant threat even when there is no evidence for thinking so.

Being careful about your online identity, privacy, taking care of your passwords, and using second factor authentication is not paranoia. It's common sense.

There are malicious actors who want to get their hands on as much information as possible. This is fact.

I made a script to grab a link to a random image of Richard Stallman.

Enjoy.

When Microsoft finally flips WSL and instead boots to a Linux kernel with an NT module on top, I hope they use the name they won in a lawsuit: Lindows

For anyone concerned about git repos on sr.ht being wiped by a bad actor's git push, just thought I'd set your minds at ease. git.sr.ht DOES use the same gc process as Gitlab, which means objects are removed as soon as you delete them, BUT I also take a full (encrypted) backup of all git repos every 5 minutes. I can restore anything from any point in time in cases like this. Same applies to hg.sr.ht.

Guix 1.0 is out at last! YEAH!
gnu.org/software/guix/blog/201
It even includes a "graphical" (read, curses-like) installer now! (The oldschool DIY route is still available if you like that though!) Lots of other stuff too!

Congrats Guix team!

Well it seems like over half of all Telegram users hate this feature. Durov (CEO) released a poll on his channel asking users if they like it and want to keep it or if they hate it and want it removed.

If you use Telegram, please vote to keep it. Complete control over your digital footprint is something that I, personally, think is essential and the fact that Telegram lets you have this much control says a lot about the platform.

There are still a few things it lacks like cross-platform encryption by default and not requiring a phone number for registration but this is a major step in the right direction.

Please #StopUsingMedium. It’s really annoying and makes me not read your content, no matter how good it is. Not specific for this author. This a general statement.

Just spent 10 minutes sanding the edge of a vinyl record because it was too wide. AMA

I'm on like my 30th listen of Kamikaze. I really love this album. I like it more each time I hear it. Feels very "Slim Shady".

Finished moving from Jekyll + Github Pages to Hugo + Gitlab Pages for my personal site. 👌
