Just a thought. Apparently the security experts say that ist completely sufficient as a anti virus software. Third party software could even open up doors that where previously closed.
If you think this is wrong information let me know ^^

Call me old fashioned. But somehow I like the best for blocking Javascript on certain sites. For me it is just the most simple thing to use 🤔

I really like this chart of how posts can be distributed throughout the Fediverse / Mastodon. Yes it’s more complicated than Facebook or Twitter, but the benefits (no ads, no tracking, no huge corporations, etc etc) are worth it

Free, open source, client-side #encryption for all of my cloud storage accounts? Thanks, #Cryptomator! Not sure why I didn't start using this when I first heard about it a few years back. Watching my files re-sync has never looked so good!

What does everyone else think of this amazing piece of software?

does the same thing as it simply replaces all Twitter links with the Nitter frontend. You can also choose to which instance the plugin should redirect you. ^^

replaces all embedded YouTube-Videos and YouTube Links with ones from . The only thing you need to decide to which instance the addon should redirect you.

Europäische Datensouveränität klingt ja eigentlich ganz gut. Eine Konkurrenz zu und ist ja prinzipiell nicht schlecht. Aber es ist die Umsetzung worauf es ankommt. Momentan habe ich das Gefühl, dass mit dem Wort um sich geworfen wird ohne einen genaueren Plan zu haben. Bin auf jeden Fall gespannt was da raus kommt. 🤔
Vor allem auch aus sicht des Datenschutzes.

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:
github.com/TeamNewPipe/NewPipe

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 😂
