During this pandemic it is more important than ever to be able to speak out and share information online, but Egypt's government is retaliating against journalists who report on COVID, and arresting others for seeking information about prison conditions eff.org/deeplinks/2020/06/egyp

@leip4Ier how would that work? To get letsencrypt to issue the domain you’d have to compromise the TLD dns first

Starting with Chrome 80, its sync functionality will encrypt your data properly - as long as you set a passphrase. This still isn't the default however.

BridgeDB version 0.10.1 is out now: blog.torproject.org/new-releas

Every time I see people complaining about GitHub being down and they not being able to get work done or deploy I feel like giving a talk (and putting it on YT) - without any irony or sarcasm - „this is how diff - email - patch“ works.

Most people are using a DECENTRALISED version control system but never had to use or understand the first word. We are missing out on a powerful feature because we centralised on a platform :(

When chmodding /dev/ nodes using readlink always remember to use -n!

@murph @meonkeys Worked last night using Fedora 32 and the latest upstream Chrome. Didn't work with Firefox 76.0 though.

@meonkeys Good, you remembered step 7. I find that one the most important one :)
