There's one kind of party that I hope will be wipe off the earth's face, that is recent and that belongs to the medieval times...

"Gender reveal party".

Urgh.

Since when did external full-size keyboards require the fn-key to be pressed in order to use F1-F12?! *rants shockingly*

Stupid question: if I host a webside over itty.bitty.site without SSL certificate, but with a hash at the end of the website, then the end-user could check the websites integrity and authentication against my GPG public key to prove that it hasn't been tampered with and was written by me.

What the end-user won't get is the TLS-encrypted connection and transfer of the website.

Am I getting it right?

Swedish Consumers Association did not show mercy to Amazon in their open letter, in regards to them establishing their presence in the next few weeks: sverigeskonsumenter.se/media/4

I used to be excited for Amazon coming to Sweden, but I rather spend my money on a company that is *slighty* more ethical in their business practices.

Third time I'm deleting Facebook over course of its inception - and now for good.

It is a disease to modern society. A plague of privacy abuse and desinformation that causes deadly outcomes from anti-vaxxers and insane conspiracies. It has gone from being a tool of communication to being a weaponised platform for destabilisation and propaganda.

Fuck Facebook. The less people using it - the better.

To all Swedish speakers: säg hej till @itsakerhetspodden som just anlände till Mastodon! En informativ och underhållande podd om IT-säkerhet.

What happened to co-location offerings for raspberry pi, did they die off? 😐

Imagine a world where setting a "Do Not Track" setting in your browser would be a (legally) effective way to opt out of tracking and you would never have to see those "Cookie settings" / "We value your privacy" layers anymore, because you've already made your choice.

Once again an authoritarian regime pulls the kill switch on internet access almost widespread protests. This calls for the need of a mesh network with a longer range than common WiFi and Bluetooth adapters.

However, I also see a risk for disinformation becoming widespread on a decentralised, unmoderated platform.

Both are different types of problems that can be solved, but the technological problem is easier to deal with than increasing critical thinking on a societal scale.

I've decided to take on a few challenges. Do mind that while I'm semi-technically proficient, I'm very new to .

Therefore I wonder if there is anyone or a community who could take the time to answer some of my questions that might arise? I don't want solutions, but rather understand the inner workings behind some of the mechanisms.

A mysterious group has hijacked Tor exit nodes to perform SSL stripping attacks

The group ran almost a quarter of all Tor exit nodes. Group still controls 10% of all Tor exit nodes today.

@protonmail Could this explain the attack I reported you ?

I love WSL2. I love and been using it since redhat 5.2, but having *does* make my life easier.

Now I don't have to choose between either, and don't need to deal with cumbersome VMs. I just install the distro I need and get all the underlying awesome tools.

This may be the closest we get "year of Linux desktop" (unless you count Chromebooks). But spreading ideals of should extend to more than desktops - it need to encompass cloud services, algorithms and more...

Sigh. Imagine if you could get a technical manual for your kids...

Fumbling around the net, I stumbled on the (and LoRaWAN) standard - which sounds pretty cool way for long-distance communication. Maybe it can even power networks?

Even if the bandwith is slim, information can be shared lo-fi style, like BBS or WEP.
