Hey you! Don't forget your daily dose of #mayonnaise. It is good for you. Trust me, I am a professional. ;)
I connected my heating unit to the internet; now it follows the electricity prices on #Nordpool and heat our home and water when it is cheaper and grid use low. Nice.
This is easier if you happen to naturally come to the subject when casually chatting with a friend, of family member. But such occasions don't tend to happen when you might meet, for example, a neighbor; no matter how friendly of nice they seem, most social situations simply don't allow for this kind of exchange of knowledge without becoming.... Weird, or preachy.
One thing that I constantly come across and struggle with is when I have learnt something useful, be it small or larger, which might be helpful for others too; more often than not, the issue is sharing this knowledge to someone else without being intrusive, or sounding like a salesperson/lobbyist.
In the recent macOS Big Sur release, Apple placed 56 of its own apps, such as FaceTime and Apple Maps, on an exclusion list allowing them to bypass firewalls and certain VPNs without users’ knowledge. This seriously undermines macOS users’ security and privacy.
After thorough examination, we confirm that on ProtonVPN’s macOS app, no traffic is excluded from the encrypted VPN tunnel when Kill Switch is enabled (including Apple apps’ traffic). More details here: https://protonvpn.com/blog/big-sur-exclusion-list/

This shows exactly why #Sweden does not recommend facemasks.
#Facemasks helps, you should probably wear them on public transport. But the by far better protection is simply to STAY APART. If people kept their distance, you would not need to wear anything across your face. A mask is not an excuse to pack yourselves like sardines, celebration or not!
The developers of Signal are currently doing a user survey:
I told them that I really like the app but also that I would like:
a) Signal on @fdroidorg
b) a proper desktop client
c) no data stored in "secure enclaves"
Maybe you'd like to tell them, too?
Excuse me, #Ionity, why do you demand me to provide a title for myself? Not because I don't fit into the few options given (Mr/Mrs or org), but because we abolished titles since decades.
I have no direct say in it myself, so please, to you that do, make your voice heard!
It is high time to dethrone the orange clown and his pack of shills and thugs.
On Wednesday the EU Commission published its new Open Source Strategy. We are pleased that the Commission recognises the benefits of #FreeSoftware and the four freedoms to use, study, share and improve, but the commission lacks concrete targets and indicators to implement the strategy. Without these, we worry that the strategy will end up accomplishing too little!
