ICYMI: #FreeSoftware #Privacy developer Ola Bini, currently a major contributor to the OTR encrypted messaging protocol, has been detained with no or flimsy charges for 4+ days and counting in Ecuador. "Evidence" included having technical books and too many devices. They say he'll be held up to 90 days while they "develop charges" against him.

Este año no he encontrado tiempo para escribir un análisis de las convocatorias y los manifiestos #HaciaLaHuelgaFeminista #8m. Pero los he leído, y lo que escribí el año pasado (en contra) sigue siendo válido para #HuelgaFeminista2019. Otro año más, esto tiene muy poco que ver con el #feminismo 😕

I've made a mock-up to illustrate my ideas about the next-gen terminal experience!

• the pathbar
• username, hostname and git branch displayed in the UI, shrinking the shell prompt back to just a $
• commands as cards
• syntax highlighting, including graying out the output a bit to differentiate it from commands themselves
• autocompletion (displayed in a native widget)
• built-in error handling options
• the time each command took (on the right)

Signal is testing out a new feature that encrypts message metadata. Once it's widely deployed, their server will facilitate delivering messages but without having access to who is sending them


I made fidelramos.net HTTPS-only. I took it as an opportunity to learn about @letsencrypt and certbot, incredible pieces of technology.

I ran into a problem when the site was live in HTTPS, but my Keybase.io proof for fidelramos.net broke.

Turns out I was using cert.pem as the SSL certificate, which doesn't include the full certificate chain. Changing to fullchain.pem solved the issue.

Next stop setting up blog.fidelramos.net!

As promised, version 1.0 of #PeerTube, a free and federated video platform, has just been released.

Thanks to all the people who supported this summer's crowdfunding.

This is only the beginning!

Deciding between mdadm and mergerfs & snapraid for my new home server.

I decided to go the mdadm route. I bought NAS HDDs so there should be no problem having them running 24/7 for years.

"A malicious DHCP server, or an attacker on the local network able to spoof DHCP responses, could use this flaw to execute arbitrary commands with root privileges on systems using NetworkManager which is configured to obtain network configuration using the DHCP protocol."

Cost of a good home theater projector in the US: $1500, same model in Europe 2500€ (almost $3000). How is this possible?

“Three easy rules that keep ‘smart people from spreading dumb ideas’: don't share #news that doesn't have substantiating links, be wary of stories that perfectly confirm your pre-existing #biases, and (for god's sake!) always ask yourself why you're talking in the first place.”

Signal has just closed around 1100 issues in a "spring cleaning" sweep. I must say that I'm disappointed that as popular as Signal is it cannot improve its UX to acceptable levels (sharing or storing multiple photos at a time, for example, or reencoding videos to lower resolutions).

If you aren’t using HTTPS Everywhere to protect your browsing, this is a great time to start: our new update changes how we deliver rulesets of HTTPS-supporting sites, ensuring you’ll see even more secure pages when they’re available.
