@climagic I use a tiny thing in my nginx config to make my own ip lookup:

location /ip {
default_type text/plain;
return 200 $remote_addr;
}

Looks like this in practice: tomasino.org/ip

In Finland, officials sometimes visit parks just after a snowfall to see where they should place new paths - the paths people have made through the newly fallen snow are then incorporated into park planning. t.co/WRUK6nmj87

A Cyberdeck Built With Ergonomics In Mind

With a new decade looming over us, the hot new thing for hackers and makers everywhere is to build cyberdecks to go with the flashy black-and-neon clothing that the sci-fi films of old predicted we’d all be wear… hackaday.com/2019/10/05/a-cybe

WTF?! My non-rooted phone had #Google Maps pre-installed, but I only use #OSMand for navigation etc.

Yesterday, I walked to a local restaurant, without using my phone, and had lunch there before walking back.

I never opened #GoogleMaps.

Today, I find a notification from Maps:
How was {restaurant name}?
Rate places to get smarter recommendations.

So it tracked and calculated where I ate without even opening my phone or the app.

Definitely time for #Pinephone / #LibreM

#privacy #Android

Reading a bunch of cyberpunk stuff as a kid got me used to the idea that when I was an adult a bunch of billionaires and multinational corporations were going to try and kill me but I always thought it would be more fun, you know?

@cwebber @KARiley40 disposable packaging has been leveraged by producers to externalise their costs. They don't pay to maintain landfills so it just becomes "someone else's problem". If one form of disposable packaging is banned they will just switch to different disposable packaging.

Perhaps if the producers of such waste were made responsible for the actual disposal costs they would be more motivated to actually reduce wasteful packaging.

When computers are involved in the inputs you experience, the outputs you produce, and your reasoning process, the distinction between those computers and you blurs considerably.

Increasingly, not having user freedom means not having agency. This work is critical.

@meejah Not to mention scp’s behavior if you forget the trailing colon. No, scp, I did not need a second copy of that file named mkb@hostname.

-p in ssh but -P in scp ... computers are awesome
