Calling out to the Mastodon community again: famous @fdroidorg Repomaker is looking for a new maintainer (and contributors). Should be familiar with F-Droid, Python, Django.

Please help keeping it alive!

Volunteers go to – others please boost, as usual 😉 Thanks!

Google is currently on witchhunt for alternative #YouTube frontends: They target the services as well as their users.

In the last week, #Invidious instances first got IP banned, and once that was circumvented stopped via heavy rate limits.

Now they manage to associate #NewPipe users with google accounts somehow, and suspend these accounts:

Now that these frontends got #Google's attention, I don't think we can sustain this cat & mouse game for long. 😔

Die Ereignisse in #Halle tangieren mich auf besondere Weise, da ich Hallenser bin und der Anschlag quasi vor der Tür meiner Familie stattfand. Dennoch finde ich es gruselig, wenn in dem Zusammenhang über mehr Rechte für #Polizei und #Verfassungsschutz gesprochen wird. #hal0910

Is there a way to schedule on desktop?
I know that there is an API for that and is using it, but is there something like to give me the functionality on PC? 🤔

Wie Microsoft auf das Projekt Münchens reagiert hat auf Linux umzustellen.

Das hier ging vor ein paar Tagen schon mal hier durch, aber ich hatte bis jetzt keine Zeit es zu lesen. Pflichtlektüre! Sollten alle in der IT-Welt gelesen haben.

Hello friends of

Is there a way of securely automate the update/install process of wordpress and its plugins?

I have tried to get SSH2 working, but I think my 2FA setup generates some problems here. For now I made www-data the owner of the wordpress folder and set up the 'direct' option in wp-config.php. Is that a secure way of handling it? Because now www-data has full contol over the files 🤔
It just does not freel right, but the nextcloud installation guide recommends the same.

The ISPA (Internet Services Providers' Association) declared Mozilla "for their proposed approach to introduce DNS-over-HTTPS in such a way as to bypass UK filtering obligations and parental controls" a villain of the internet. That is just hilarious 😂

Can someone please give me a of the whole drama thing?
It still pops up in my timeline again and again. From what I have gathered it is about some right wing extremists on there and app developers trying to block the entire thing. Does Gab use ActivityPub or is it a entirely different project?

I am pretty much completely out of the loop 😅

Es gibt einige Schulen, die mittlerweile "G Suite for Education" von Google nutzen. Lesen die Verantwortlichen eigentlich auch die Datenschutzerklärung, bevor sie ihre Schüler das nutzen lassen? Dort steht, dass Google personenbezogene Daten, die im Rahmen der Nutzung der G Suite anfallen, mit anderen Google-Daten verknüpfen kann. WTF!?

Do you have a good suggestion for an email client for Android? I know there is K9. But there hasn't been an update for nine months and the app seems kind of orphaned to me.

Also, the user interface is extremely old-fashioned (although the UI from fairemail is even worse).

Thanks in advance! 😊

Consider adding "iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcpmss --mss 1:500 -j DROP" to your iptables, theres a denial of service using SACK-packages to shut down stable linux kernels prior to and including 4.19.28-2, theres no debian kernel update as of now, but the iptables rule above prevents abusing the error. Freebsd is also mildly affected, but isn't shutting down on abuse, just getting slow.

Ist es komisch, dass mir Server Hardening Spaß macht?🛡️
Es fühlt sich irgendwie gut an bestimmte Sicherheitsmaßnahmen einzurichten 😅

So. @WatchBOT hat jetzt einen Bugfix spendiert bekommen. Die Auswertung sollte nun korrekt wiedergegeben werden 😅
