@puresick Would this repo be something?


I haven't yet actually used it, even though I'm considering using it myself, but it looks promising from what I can tell!

Hey followers!
Does anyone have a working blocklist for Pi-hole to block URLs used by Apple for tracking purposes?
Retooting appreciated! :)

Shopping weekend 2021 

We'll have a few sales on Write.as throughout the weekend! But I let this important national holiday slip my mind until today, so not all sales are live yet.

Right now, you can get:

- 25% off our yearly Pro subscription: write.as/start/pro
- 33% off the @writefreely iOS app: apps.apple.com/us/app/writefre

And there's plenty more to come. I'll post here and on our @deals blog when everything is available 🙂

Suddenly Bcache stopped working. It's there, I am booting my OS from it - it just doesn't cache anything. All I/O goes straight into the backing HDD, and the cache SSD is totally unused.
I've been using Bcache with success for a few months and it has let me get the best of my small SDD and large HDD. It was fantastic. But now I can't figure out what's wrong. And what's worse - I can't find any resources on such issues or contact to anyone who could help me.

- Evtl. kamerageeignet
- 350€ maximal

Servicetoot: Wer spontan eine einzelne professionelle Videokonferenz/Schulung halten muss: Der folgenden Bigbluebutton-Anbieter hat Einzelsitzungspreise und die Recording-Funktion komplett deaktiviert:

Alternative für drei Monate Laufzeit, ebenfalls garantiert ohne Recording:

It always amazes me when people want to vote about something in a free software project and somehow imagine, that suddenly developers would follow that direction just because there is a majority of users voting for something.

Thing is: Most projects have few people who implements stuff, and as people in the kitchen will tell you: You get to eat what the cook likes, or you'll have to cook by yourself.

So everyone who insists on this, please pack your stuff and play democracy somewhere else.

Wer mithilfe der #CodeCheck-App bewusste Kaufentscheidungen treffen möchte, zahlt am anderen Ende drauf: Im Test krallte sich der Anbieter einen unguten Mix aus Standortdaten und Kennnummern und gab Nutzungsdaten an mehrere Werbefirmen weiter. mobilsicher.de/apptest/frisch-

Random fact straight from Microsofts privacy policy: They track every button you press on a Xbox controller while "using Xbox network".

privacy.microsoft.com/en-US/pr (search the page for "Xbox wireless controller using the Xbox network")

Ah it is always a little adventure to get syntax highlighting, LSP etc. running in neovim for a new language :D

I'd rather go there.

Some said an open-world experience this immersive wasn’t possible. But it’s already here. And you don’t even need silly VR headsets.

GitHub has a nice overview about their subprocessors with whom they share your personal information and the cookies they are setting:


It is somehow frightening that I am pointing this out as a "better" example, but most companies just hit you with walls of text.

One thing that annoys me the most are web apps/pages were you cannot access their imprint/privacy policy etc. without being logged out.

Figma is such a service.

The Monstrosity Email Has Become

> I’m an inbox 0 extremist. I unsubscribe from everything that contains an unsubscribe link. I spent the last two years sending GDPR removing requests to every company sending me an unwanted email. The first three months were completely exhausting but once I did the first bulk, it became more rigorous hygiene.
> I can tell many anecdotes about how companies handle GDPR requests, how I found that I was in some commercial databases, how I tracked down the owners of those databases. How I permanently removed more than 300 online accounts and how I sometimes receive a very unexpected email from companies one year after they told me every information about me was removed. Or how I got stuck in a loop where being unsubscribed from a newsletter required posting on their support forum but they automatically subscribed everyone posting on their support forum. Latest story in town: Lying companies telling me that they had removed my data while I still can log in! (they simply renamed my user account as « removed » but didn’t delete anything).
> I spent so much time on this because I love emails. But there should be a better way.

"Nacktfoto-Filter für iMessage: Apple bereitet Einführung vor"

Meine Prophezeiung: Und demnächst dann im ursprünglich geplanten Funktionsumfang + Erweiterungen. Das war es für Apple mit dem "Privatsphäre-Image".

I got zero responses last time I hit up the Fediverse offering paid creative work, but I'm not giving up!

Some #Owncast features being worked on require iconography. And while we could use an icon library or something like Fiverr it'd be nice to work with an illustrator on the Fediverse who focuses on icons to have something that is custom.

This is paid work, so please boost and tell your friends.

Feel free to message me on the fediverse or email me: gabek@real-ity.com

when I buy internet stuff from like an Australian punk band making shirts in their garage: 1 email confirming order with tracking number, then shirt. end of transaction

when I buy a sweater organizer from a regular store with a website: 7 emails before the tracking code email, 6 shipping update emails, box arrives, 4 emails begging me to fill out surveys, somehow a thousand marketing emails even though I unchecked everything
