Looks Like Facebook Found a Way to Bypass Europe’s Privacy Rules
The draft decision, if ratified, could upend the protections provided by GDPR, Europe’s gold-standard privacy protections.

and Broadcom have done an excellent job of preventing me from running distros on my 2017 MacBook Pro. So much forum trawling this past week and I still can't get Zorin OS to establish a Wi-Fi connection, proprietary drivers or otherwise. 😞

I'm here for like two weeks. It feels much better than constantly being on Facebook. I'm calmer and more present.

But I really miss my #yarn and #handspinning tribe. I have noone to really share this passion with in real life, and there seems to be like I'm the only mastodon user in this niche.
Maybe I should not care and just create. It just feels a bit lonely like this.

Or maybe I'm just too stupid to navigate the #fediverse. But I'm really not that geeky Person...

If you want to preview how a post looks on Mastodon without anyone else seeing it, select a visibility of "Direct" and toot it. As long as you haven't @-ed anyone, only you will be able to see this post.

It will be a DM to yourself, which means it shows you exactly what the published post looks like, but keeps it hidden.

When you're happy to let others see it, use the "Delete & re-draft" option (in the post's "..." menu) to change the visibility to a more public setting. Then just toot it again, and it will be visible.

(If you want to make multiple changes, just keep DMing the post to yourself and redrafting until you're happy. When you're happy, redraft one more time and change the visibility to a non-direct setting.)

How to unfuck your life?
Keep on cooking!
From the top to the bottom: dried Carolina reaper, Moruga scorpion and unknown chilies, dried datterino tomatoes, loquat marmalade, apple, ginger and cinnamon jam and red bell pepper and red chili sauce.
Nice backstories: we've used wild apples which I've found on a tree near a highway junction -really sweet and crunchy!- and the loquats were a barter. we'll bring the owner of the tree a very hot sauce.
Why buy when you can forage or barter? :blobaww:

Excited to start the Milkwood Permaculture online course! Been wanting to do that for a couple of years now.

I want to host a HTML file under a domain I own, without needing any central server/organization and without a static IP.

What are my options?

So far, IPFS seems the best. I can put my file on the decentralized network by running my own node and use a TXT DSN entry to point that to my domain (

Any other alternatives?

I'm looking for something simpler and accessible (explaining IPFS, even for techy people, takes a lot).

boosts appreciated ✨

hey peeps, I made a list of open source projects and organizations trying to fix our broken world

Just finished book 4 of Dune: God Emperor of Dune.
I love! the series, been reading it since 1977-ish. But part 4 has always been ...difficult to get through.
Part 5 and 6, great read!

I've tried getting into Mastodon a couple of times in the past but I'm feeling like this time might stick. Fingers crossed.

What do you think are features that must be or should be included in #ActivityPub in the future?

Additional info:

For example, "liking" and "sharing" are part of the specification.

Note that e.g. Mastodon implements more than just the ActivityPub specification. So the question is also what features should be implemented by all instances on the Fediverse (incl. e.g. PeerTube).

FYI: Current ActivityPub specification:

FOSS creates huge opportunities for indigenous communities around the world to ensure the technology they use reflects their unique and precious cultures. Software is a personal and cultural sovereignty issue and deserves a global uprising - in the form of people who desire to learn. We need a new 'enlightenment' with true, deep digital literacy as the goal if we want to achieve a true balance of power. Facebook, Microsoft, Google, Apple and others like them are just digital colonials.

You don't own the content of your digital garden if you need Chrome to access it, simple as that.

Happily working on my emacs skills. They need to be brushed up. I had about 50 org-roam v1 notes, wanted to upgrade....I decided to start clean and try out spacemacs as well.
My fingers could not find anything anymore :-D (bc evil-vi...went back to evil emacs state)
Org is up and running, how i like it. I'm getting to know org-roam again.
I somehow feel I've not really gotten it yet. Shall I use deft or go with helm or ido? choices choices.
