Covid is NOT over in Germany. Our kita / kindergarten is staying closed tomorrow because of an outbreak. Wear masks when going to public places, please!!

Was wondering how much you rely on mobile data plans and how many GB you can use in a month?
I have 6GB per month and manage to use it all. Mostly because of video streaming.

Tried installing Mastodon on the Yunohost server on a Raspberry Pi 3. Turns out it does not have enough RAM. Installation aborted itself, left a nice clear log message and then uninstalled everything nicely. That is what is really awesome about Yunohost.

First day of the year where I need to keep our outside windows and doors shut to keep the heat out and the house cool.

It's the time of the year again where the fingerprint reader on my phone is useless because of my sweaty hands.

The text editor in Nextcloud is pretty cool. Works well with Markdown notation. Seamlessly editing files in the browser and on the OS with great syncing. Haven't had a "conflict" once after a couple weeks of working with it.
Yunohost + Nextcloud + Raspberry Pi 3 B = 👍

Many German doctors use e-mail to inform other doctors that they have sent them a fax.

Over the course of a day, the talented band Kalush Orchestra has literally come from one of the happiest places and moments in the World, to one of the most dangerous to be in today, the front-lines in Ukraine, where they defend their home country from a brutal invader.

Achievement unlocked - exporting / importing IPFS keys worked, so I can continue updating my site's IPFS mirror from the new Linux setup.

Considering learning basic Ukrainian - lots of people at the playground and in the parks here. Should help out everyone. Anyone has a recommendation? Duolingo any good?

Eurovision, also public voting is brutal.

Eurovision 2022 Germany zero points from the country jurys... feels off. Was it that bad? UK wins. Ha.

In the process of moving my OpenPGP based keys and claims - which started on Keybase.io - to Keyoxide.org. It is unclear what will happen to Keybase any given moment since Zoom bought it, so I wanted to be prepared. Even-though Keyoxide has less features, the base principle of confirming ones online identities with public key pairs remains. And it seems that most special Keybase features can be replaced with other services, like Mastodon and such.

Hoping Kicks Condor is alright. Haven't seen an update to their site since September 2021.

How do you decide on what is the most important thing to focus on at any time of the day?

Reading the 134 pages of the bill, I understand the proposal to be a state-run "antivirus" program that must be installed on every digital device and server connected to the Internet, analyzing every text, image and video. If it finds something, you will be reported automatically to Interpol and the program will read the file and remove it from your device and any other server. Before you can use any device, you must identify yourself, no matter if it is a cell phone or a computer.

So what kind of legal GDPR trap are we in when unsubscribing from a newsletter is impossible because you do not want to accept the cookies from the company's page to unsubscribe?

Some screenshots to illustrate the problem:

I need to accept these trackers on my browser before I can unsubscribe?
Screenshot showing 7 trackers blocked on Epson's unsubscribe page.

Or is the site just plain broken? Clicking the "Abmelden" button does nothing.

Why does modern Web UI design detest having to design pagination elements so much?
