I am disinterested in disputing "the best". I am, above all, interested in what *I* like, followed by what family & friends like (eg, present company), and then most broadly but of only practical interest because it dictates availability, what "'people" like.

I must not tweet.
Twitter is the mind-killer.
Twitter is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my tweets.
I will permit them to pass over me and through me.
And when they have gone past I will turn the inner eye to see their path.
Where the tweets have gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

(Apologies to the memory of Frank Herbert.)

The fundamental freedom to fork and the ability to federate are complementary.

Forking establishes a divide, federation is the set of techniques for communication, collaboration, and navigation across divides to create a whole that is distinct from and often greater than the sum of the parts.

turns out, #radare2 has an env variable "asm.sub.varmin", by default set to 256, that disables variable substitution for values less than the setting. after setting it to 0, everything worked perfectly! thanks to "pancake" on the radare IRC channel for help!

Do you use uBlock Origin? Did you know that you can use the Better Blocker block list on it?

Just add the rules from here:

PS. If you have other rule sets, I’d recommend not mixing them as we go to great pains to ensure that we don’t break sites while protecting your/our privacy. If you are mixing rulesets, we can’t help you if things break :)

So I just found out today from a reliable source (and thank you to you.. you know who you are 🙏), that it looks like I have been removed from the anonradio mailing list as early as June 21st... and this is how I have had no news of what's happening on anonradio since that time... I did not remove myself from this mailing list and I only deactivated my SDF account on Saturday, June 27th.

I have just found out today that 2 DJs have left anonradio (I have heard rumours but I do not believe in rumours until I see them).

Who does that? This just proves how tyrannical that place is and silence ppl who speak up against them or oppose them. How can you entrust your data and privacy to a place like that???

If you have sent me emails to my SDF account or from your SDF account this past week or even the week before that, there is a possibility that the emails have been compromised or may have not reached their intended destination.

If you have an SDF masto account and you were not my follower when my sdf masto account was still active, most likely you will never ever see my public posts, unless of course you search me off the WWW but it would take days for search engines to index my public posts.

Wow, what a great return of DJ @snowdusk at his new digs on with "The Intergalactic Wasabi HOUR"! Looking forward to future shows on there, especially since I now have Irssi properly configured to connect to IRC. 👍

Hi Fediverse 👋

to break the quietness of this account, here's a quick news flash:

- We added a list with Zoom alternatives 🤙

- We replaced some entries on "Bubbling under" 🔧

- We added Cryptpad to the Doodle list as it has a poll feature 🗒️

- Our DRM article has images now 🙃

- We have an Audible list in the pipeline 🎧

Thanks to @uniq for the nudge to write this! 😊👍

Brilliant project that tidies up public domain ebooks.

Gutenberg and Internet Archive are wonderful resources, but the texts are poorly formatted for actual use, especially on ereaders.

This is a volunteer driven initiative to bring these texts up to date with modern standards and make them look as good as possible on the page.

@alexis That's a very cynical take. It was the 1960s and I think it's easy to forget how backwards things were at the time. And he wrote an American prime time show featuring a Russian guy and a black woman among the most important characters on a spaceship. And the only reason he didn't include any gay characters was, according to George Takei, that they would've been immediately cancelled.

Compare things like Flash Gordon or Buck Rogers which are literally All-American white guy fiction.

I like it when even Cloudflare starts to de-Google-ify.

"We recently migrated from Google's reCAPTCHA to the independent hCaptcha. It helps address a privacy concern inherent to relying on a Google service..."

Great explanation how contact tracing can be done right, fully respecting privacy.

This study shows that such fast contact tracing could be as effective as a lockdown.

The CCC, German's most reliable technology activists, explain the conditions to make this work and have promised to warn about bad apps. I will listen to them.

re: uspol, reflecting 

staring down another massacre at every primary date, what was bernie supposed to do? it’s not even about whether “bernie can still win” but about the astonishing callousness of intentionally, knowingly holding so many lives in the balance.

I have family and friends who work in the NHS and other health sectors that feel exactly like this.
