If you dual boot Linux and Windows on your machine, be careful with the most recent Window updates!
Microsoft disabled more than 100 SecureBoot signatures and locks out distros like Ubuntu 20.04 or Manjaro from booting on your computer.
You can temporarily disable SecureBoot in your BIOS settings, should you already be affected by this situation.
Anyone really think Domain Name System (DNS) can be replaced by some "domains on blockchain" whatever? Seriously, we struggle to bring #DNSSEC into addressing system and out of a sudden we will rework entire naming of the internet that's been there from the beginning? 🤣 Don't get me wrong: I adore #cryptography and implementations of #crypto on #blockchain but it's just ridiculous how some think blockchain is a solution of just about everything. It's not. #buzzwords #dns #web3 #web3scam
@homegrown Not trying to discourage people from running own mail servers, but it's far more complicayed than 10 years ago - if you don't implement all trending features, there is little chance mails will reach recipients at all or end up in spam folders 🧐 Gmail and Yahoo might not be too aggressive, but Outlook is pretty strict when receiving 😔
@homegrown No, non-technical person should not run e-mail service himself/herself since it's a huge challenge: warming up IPs, setting DNS PTR, adding SPF, DKIM, DANE, proper TLS, then constantly adjusting filtering and fighting spam bots, dealing with denylists, etc. I'd say managing mail server is a full-time job 🤔 And double these efforts if you're aiming to send mass mails (newsletters, automatic replies) 🔧
As #github now finally supports Mermaid.js #diagrams there is really no further stoppers to use them everywhere 🤓 I've got to know this great plain text (therefore easy to version on #git) diagramming library by Knut Sveidqvist when using @gitea for @inretio needs and liked it a lot to use also with #VSCodium (via plugin) for daily notes. Highly recommend!

#Ukraine: Russia has launched 'full-scale invasion'
When #corporate greed undermines #engineering culture, disasters happen. At Boeing it literally happened two times with passenger aircraft #boeing 737 MAX killing hundreds. Senior management was only interested in stock prices - those criminals cut costs in engineering, quality assurance and training. Yet instead of jail time CEO Dennis Muilenburg walks away with $62.2m in stock and pension awards. He is back in #aviation industry now. This is outrageous. #documentary "Downfall"
As #Spotify co-founder Daniel Ek invested 9 figures EUR into defence startup Helsing and continues to host misinformation by Joe Rogan exclusively paying him 100m USD, it's time to leave this #music and #podcast platform for good. Highly encourage to #deletespotify esp. if you pay for Premium subscription. #canceljoerogan
Canonical, maker of #Ubuntu basically advertising for NFTs as some of it uses Ubuntu Core 🤦🤦gross.
It may not be them doing it directly, but that's a pretty clear NFT endorsement.
Did the folks at Canonical really think this through? Too busy seeing ££ signs perhaps? NFTs are shite, stop it.
Interesting to know: Corsair acquired Scuf Gaming, leader in performance console controllers, in 2019 which has a large portfolio of patents around rear paddles and trigger technology. XBOX Elite series controllers are licenced from Scuf Gaming #gaming
We applaud Google for implementing this much-needed feature. Now Apple needs to implement this feature as well, for the safety of their customers. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2022/01/victory-google-releases-disable-2g-feature-new-android-smartphones
Max Schrems, the lawyer who successfully sued Facebook, has scored another victory; this time against Google: Austria's data protection authority has found that Google Analytics is illegal on European websites. #Fight4Privacy 💪💪💪
