Pinned toot

I don't know how people can manage without a personal NAS and a password manager.

This last decade these have been among the most valuable tools i've set up for myself to avoid spilling your everywhere.

Don't lose data or access to your data on account of laziness !

I've been absent this whole week from Masotodon : very busy week !

I spent the time doing an out of work-place training course on electrical hazards in the entertainment industry for a qualification.

It was very very intrsuctive. We all use electricity every day yet we forget how dangerous it can become when accidents happen.

If you ever have a chance to follow a course (even a one-day long one) on electrical hazards, please do ! You'll be happy you did 🙂

Winamp was a thing for you in the past?

Corporate media now bringing it back to the spotlight after a new release some time back.

BUT: Winamp is proprietary, never mind the memories;

Aaaand now ARTCILE19 used the word "hackers" to mean cybercriminals.

And now they're talking about "criminalization of tech skills", which happens *because* people use "hacker" to mean "cybercriminal".

Eh, come on.

If you want to visualize how much your simple navigation is connecting behind your back and judge for yourself how much you think the web is broken when you start harshly refusing most connections have a look at this awesome addon :

If you're concerned about privacy over the internet, i've just followed links and discovered myshadow.org/

Another nice website to help raise awareness of what {digital} privacy is and why it's important.

Weird, somehow fascinating and relaxing at the same time:

Currently struggling to really lay out and understand the concept of limetime in rust and how to properly use it.

Rust documentation is really amazing by the way.

No matter which social network you're on, following a diverse group of people helps you taking a peek at the other side of your personal filter bubble.

You don't have to agree with everything and everyone, but please, at least try to listen to people and their opinions.

It will help you appreciate your own life, and may just make you a little wiser.

So i just blocked the entire @newjack.city domain.

Hmm; just read about Pipewire for the first time, looks like an evolution to come for the old pulseaudio. All users of pavu-control be warned 😉

‘Facebook and Google are run by today’s robber barons. Break them up’

“Today, we have a new set of robber barons, running digital monopolies and again receiving disproportionate benefits from the disruption brought about by new technology. History tells us we will need to regulate their monopolies just as we regulated previous monopolies.”

Some detailed photos of the carving. There will be another one at the end of the month I'm hoping to do a bit better with that I'll live toot. This is just a practice but I am proud of it. 🎃

There's more on flickr here, including a bunch of the progress pics. flic.kr/s/aHskKWzGyo
