It’s mixed. Sometimes we use literal translations (e.g. computer -> Rechner, window -> Fenster, operating system -> Betriebssystem). For other terms we stick to the English one (e.g. software, bug, chip, browser, email).

Great update again. I’m most excited about the embedded videos!

Will these language tags eventually be extended for custom tags (ala Reddit flairs)?

TIL they are not the same 😅

No surprise. Russia has been fighting an info and cyber war against the west for many years and tries to divide and destabilize Germany by funding far-right parties, amongst other.

Seems like they basically match the form fields (and meta data like IP address and user agent) against some predefined rules. I don’t see that this would work reliably to prevent spam from robots.

I’ve quite enjoyed Kagi but I kinda doubt they’ll be around for long.

Perhaps. In a blog post they shared they would currently cover their technical expenses with their income but not the wages, which is a shame in my opinion. A clear business model that does not rely on ads and tracking makes me feel better using it.

There is currently no way to block whole instances as a user and it seems like this feature will not come anytime soon. So it’s either self hosting for full control or choose an instance that blocks the unwanted instances. Alternatively you could just block the communities of unwanted instances.

There has been an article that deals better and less click-baity with that claim. Spoiler: there is not much evidence that Apple performs CP detection.


The study is sponsored by meat industry btw.

Marlow Foods Ltd

The Company produces and markets mince, chickens, sausages, steaks, fishless fingers, and meat products.

Maybe it should be required by law to include critical nutrients in meat substitutes (perhaps in plant milk too?). It already worked for iodised salt in the 90s (at least here in Germany).

Time to start learning an instrument then

Ouch, the antisemitism in the comments feels like a gut punch.

Matrix uses the Double Ratchet Algorithm (“Signal protocol”) too, so do WhatsApp and Conversations ;)

Right, the fact they handle/mitigate failures on BGP level is indeed a nice feature that is not easily reproducible with most vServers. Thanks for pointing that out.

$8/m seems really pricey for what’s effectively a Wireguard VPN. With a cheap VPS one could easily get the same for half the price.

I wonder why they stick to their own crypto protocol instead of the state-of-the-art Signal protocol.

More like westerners trying to explain you how much you suffered under communism despite better social welfare and easier access to education in China, Cuba, the Soviet Union, etc.

I think my first resource on Python was A Byte of Python. However, I’d probably rather start with a statically typed language.

If you are willing to teach your friend personally I’d suggest starting with illustrating basic algorithms and datastructures with a pen on paper. This helped me much more than anything else when I startetd programming.

Japan is long stretched slim Island at the edge of the pacific ocean which makes it perfect for off shore wind turbines (like the one recently opened) and sea hydro power plants.

The government also pledged to develop next-generation reactors.

Disappointing. Renewables are a better investment.

Yeah. Knowing PETA’s other work I thought the turkey would end up on the table too. Glad it was tofu or seitan in the end :D

With these studies I always wonder if they actually show some sort of natural inclination, or if it only stems from education/socialisation.

Are we talking about terminal emulators or cli/tui apps? In the first case it’d be foot for me.

What is your opinion on RethinkDNS?
At a first glance the [android app](https://www.f-droid.org/en/packages/com.celzero.bravedns/) seems to support many features of NetGuard and InviZible Pro (albeit not all yet?). What's your opinion on it (possibly as an alternative to the former)?

Help Chile write free software values, privacy, and digital sovereignty into their constitution
TL;DR: Chile is currently running a convent for a new constitution and there is a proposal to adopt the free software values and privacy into their constitution. It will be proposed to the convent if 15,000 Chilean signatures can be collected.
