It's like I can either keep notes digitally or keep them in my paper notebook - it's hard doing both and I'm more often at the computer, so I am lagging behind in my . Perhaps I simply don't have enough space on my little desk for the notebook and to comfortably write. Needing to move the keyboard aside is too much of a hassle. Digital text files don't take up physical space. Or perhaps I am just lazy.

Sharing the Earthstar Encryption Project again.

> Earthstar is a tool for building undiscoverable, offline-first shared data storage. Users decide which devices their data are stored on, what the infrastructure of their network looks like, the shape of their data, and how they can interact with it.

> Storing and collaborating digital data is an essential part of every day computing, from photo-sharing amongst family members, to document co-authoring between colleagues. Earthstar is a tool for building undiscoverable, offline-first shared data storage. Users decide which devices their data are stored on, what the infrastructure of their network looks like, the shape of their data, and how they can interact with it. The proposed project adds a number of useful features, notably end-to-end encryption (including metadata), P2P discovery in local networks and efficient data synchronisation.

It's time we really show Russia we mean it - this inhuman invasion has to end! Now their evil rockets have crossed an actual red line by exploding in nearby Poland. Russian rockets hit a NATO member state and they caused civilian casualties. How many people need to suffer before we actually put a stop to this madness?! And why do we keep "tolerating" their evilness?!

Hello fellow users, the "Yunohost menu button" in the bottom right of the apps installed on your instance can be moved around if it gets in your way. Which it does a bit when I edit calendar entries in the Nextcloud UI.

Let's take a moment to appreciate that and any personal web project requiring a secure encrypted connection would not have been so easy and would not have been completely free without Let's Encrypt.

Going to try to set up Pleroma on our Raspberry Pi as my first entry to the Fediverse - Let's see how that will go.

Sites like Instagram and Reddit, which are hiding content after teasing access to the content a bit, are really only doing it for the monetization of your content and your profile data. Post on Mastodon or on your own website and you decide yourself who gets to see your contributions.

Seems like I've been supporting Akismet with $12 a year for the last two years without actually having the service active on any of my sites. Glad to support them anyway.

Seriously, can anyone actually make sensible use of the OneDrive picture Web interface? I have been trying to download a picture from 2016 for about ten minutes now. It keeps reloading and actually crashing... WTH
