I'm not sure why I sometimes ask myself when sharing someone else's blog/post, "would this person be okay with me sharing this?". Does this even matter?

"Getting people to value privacy is like trying to get somebody raised on Burger King to value their heath. They won't know how important it is until they have that first stroke."

Possibly the best thing to come out of #lounge:privacytools.io

Just noticed contabo updated their website and is offering some apparently affordable VPS and storage VPS. Any insight on this provider ? contabo.com/

@betoissues You forgot the most important part: setting up a fancy colorful shell prompt to flex on all the imaginary people looking over my shoulder.

Just learned how to set up DNS over HTTPS and I feel empowered.

real /r/relationships post title 

I [18 F] left my laptop open and my sister [15 F] replaced everything in my "Hobbies & Passions" section on my resumé with just "garlic bread" as a joke. I unknowingly sent it out to about 20-30 businesses and now I have no idea what to do about it.

In Spanish one's not even used to positioning the tongue like that and end up pronouncing sh / ch.

Currently what I'm missing the most because of virtual mandarin classes is not being able to see people faces when learning how to pronounce j, q, x.

- #Plausible - plausible.io
- #Shynet - github.com/milesmcc/shynet

- #GoAccess - goaccess.io

Breaking: Tech giants start enforcing their *pre-existing* terms of service prohibiting hateful and violent content.

News response: Has big tech gone too far???

I've made some changes to the text on my site and also started sharing my xmpp fingerprints for omemo over there.

Which has primacy?

Freedom of Speech

or

Autonomy in Commmunication

How do these differ?

What do they comprise of?

What conflicting or intersecting rights exist?

Boosts appreciated.

Which are some items in your checklist when you launch a new server? I'm writing a blog post and as a basic I go for:
- Disabling SSH with password and root access
- Firewall configuration
- Fail2ban or other sort of protection.
