Highlighting the potential harmony between the #prepper and #freesoftware movements, something I picked up on a while ago and have wanted to express. (Written with a #libertarian audience in mind but not exclusively for them.)
I deleted a bunch of photos from Flickr to make sure I was within their new size restriction. I realize now that I might have had descriptions attached. These sorts of things really ought to live with the images themselves somehow, so I could keep them.
Of course going forward I'm going to try some sort of self hosted thing. It's sort of a pain keeping parity with my local copies of the stuff. Particularly if people _comment_ on it.
The new mural at Tuscan Market in downtown #PortsmouthNH looks like it'll fit the setting pretty well and liven up the corner.

Doing full backups with #sandstorm isn't what it's cracked up to be. 1.8 Gigs somehow! With only like 3 grains, biggest one 30 megs (zipped).
I think I'm just going to make a regimen of doing this manually grain by grain. 🤷♂️
I just figured out the simplest independent #sandstorm authentication setup...though not the simplest to use for the average user.
Add a system user (`alice`) Install postfix, allow only local email. Change its SMTP port to something other than 25 (Sandstorm uses 25.) Install mailutils to check your mail.
Install Sandstorm, enable only email auth, SMTP server is localhost with the non-25 port you chose. Login email is `alice@localhost`. Ssh in as `alice` and check mail to get login token.
@fdroidorg f-droid.org seems to be currently slow to respond or sometimes unreachable. Both website and repo. I'm connecting from the United States.
#Ubuntu Server really dropped the ball IMO as far as installation instructions, particularly with partitioning. "FILE SYSTEM SUMMARY"_ "AVAILABLE DEVICES", " USED DEVICES"? What does any of this mean? What are you going to _do_ to my disks?
I have a home partition in there that I don't want you to touch, and I have no idea what's happening. Thankfully it's on its own disk, so it'll *probably* be fine. (And yes I did back it up first).
I can't seem to find any documentation for cryptswap. I can only find articles talking *about* it. I don't know how to install it on #Ubuntu server. I don't even know what project it's part of. All I know is that it sometimes exists (apparently on one of my machines!) and some people want to get rid of it. Seems like a lapse in documentation.

@starrychloe Gab joined the fediverse, and it looks like Minds may be following. This is becoming very interesting!
