Whoops, killed my mastodon server by trying to upgrade. Had to rollback by 3 days. (Right after adding more storage to my VM and fixing it being down for months). Hopefully I don't make the same mistake twice.

Signal created targeted ads for Instagram that show the personal data that Facebook collects about you and sells access to.

They were blocked.

We won't be hearing about any blue screen of death on #Mars since #NASA rover robot is powered by #Linux and #FPrime.

#software is #opensource! Check it out in the NASA repo.

No one should be imprisoned or executed based on secret evidence that cannot be fairly evaluated for its reliability, and the ruling in this case will help prevent that injustice.

Vanilla JS reference site continues to be one of my favorites.

lol remember when Voatz tried to win brownie points with the infosec community by presenting at Defcon

RT @tarah@twitter.com

When it comes to attempts by @Voatz@twitter.com to disrupt democracy with blockchain voting, “Elections are not a market, they are a public good” I tell @Chitra_Ragavan@twitter.com in @swaaymedia@twitter.com. swaay.com/is-secure-online-vot

I'm just thinking about this blog post I wrote in 2018. Because even when Twitter makes a good decision, the first sentence comes to mind: Why does the entire world have to wait on the CEO of one US company to make a decision?


I'm finally seeing toots that have been posted more recently. I think the biggest issue around doing a root cause analysis is that I do not know where to look to see why the problem happened in the first place. My best guess is that I let my SSL cert expire and it took a while for everything to get set right after I got certbot to refresh my cert. Oh well. Glad it's working again.

Haven't seen a toot since middle of November. Hosting your own instance is not a piece of cake, is it?
