❓ Since a few months, every time my macbook pro comes back from sleep, after a few seconds it drops the wifi connection and I have to manually reconnect to my wifi. I think this only happens with my home network. I've tried deleting the network preferences, but to no avail. I don't find a lot of helpful information online. Does anybody here have an idea? Boosts welcome!

Urgh, after being sick for ten days, i finally had the brain capacity to continue studying a bit. feels good :blobcatrainbow:

If all decryption software did the jiggly character reveal I feel PGP in email would have caught on with the masses..

Ein paar Beispiele gefällig?
Verschlüsselung stärken - Tor verbieten
Personalmangel bei Polizei ignorieren - Polizeigesetze verschärfen
Dieselskandal ignorieren - Grenzwerte hochsetzen
Digitalsteuer ablehnen - Verantwortung an Plattformen abschieben -> Uploadfilter
Grundrechte für die Sicherheit opfern - Nazis in Polizei und Militär ignorieren

.csv is the superior file format. If you send me an .xlsx I'm going to strip out all your formatting. I'll never even glance at your pivot tables, fancy headers, frozen searchable columns. If I can't parse it with awk it's going in the bin.

"Zuckerberg’s new privacy essay shows why Facebook needs to be broken up: Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t understand what privacy means — he can’t be trusted to define it for the rest of us." Privacy-friendly services already exist, we don't need FB for this. 😉

"Free Wifi" oder "Freies WLAN" liest man immer öfter. Was mich freuen würde, wäre, wenn es "Bedingungsloses WLAN" wäre.

If you are in a photo that has been uploaded to Flickr, IBM may have used your face to train facial recognition technology that could eventually be used to surveil you.

Nearly a million photos were scraped from Flickr to do so.

Vor 24 Jahren hatte ich ein Knoten-Büchlein für die Pfadfinderinnen geschrieben. Gezeichnet mit 'nem Vektorgrafikprogramm oder von Hand, eingescannt mit Handscanner, mit WordPerfekt zusammengefügt.

Heute wäre das mit Grafiktablett + Inkscape + Scribus viel schneller erledigt ...

Gestern hat mich wieder jemand "im Internet gefunden" und nach der Kopievorlage gefragt.

Nun also mit CC BY-SA Lizenz: "Knoten (nicht nur) für Pfadfinderinnen"

#Privacy? I don't have anything to hide.

> Over the last 16 months, as I've debated this issue around the world, every single time somebody has said to me, "I don't really worry about invasions of privacy because I don't have anything to hide." I always say the same thing to them. I get out a pen, I write down my email address. I say, "Here's my email address. What I want you to do when you get home is email me the passwords to all of your email accounts, not just the nice, respectable work one in your name, but all of them, because I want to be able to just troll through what it is you're doing online, read what I want to read and publish whatever I find interesting. After all, if you're not a bad person, if you're doing nothing wrong, you should have nothing to hide." Not a single person has taken me up on that offer.

Yup. Paper voting is the gold standard for democracy.

Paper voting is anonymous, it's physically limited to one vote per person, recounts are easy, it's unhackable, you can check for counterfeit votes through forensics, the boxes can be physically sealed and stored forever in case of disputes etc.

It's the ultimate in transparency as literally anyone can watch a paper vote being counted, and we have centuries of experience on avoiding paper fraud. This is a solved problem.

Two long-time friends who run a company for GIS services are looking for freelance support. Some areas of expertise would include Java, Postgres, PostGIS, Angular and React, with Java/Postgres being the most important skills. Remote work is possible, volume might be around 20h/week and english language would be ok. They are looking for a long-term relationship and I can wholeheartedly recommend them. If you think you might be a good fit, contact me and I can connect you. Happy for boosts!

Finally got around to flash my one plus 3t w/ lineageos.

so far, it looks promising.

no gapps seem to increase battery life a lot.
