I just typed two words into the google machine and the first link it returned was part of a repo owned by @ajroach42

synchronet tor

github.com/ajroach42/Docs/blob

I keep cycling back to this. I'm doing so now.

on Sunday, 2021 02 28, I will be installing synchronet in the lab on a tor-connected rpi4 in hopes of connecting with other like-minded sysops interested in exploring a bbs network with internode traffic carried over tor (and client traffic carried over tor or (tls-encrypted) clearnet at your preference).

tagging this #synchronetTor for lack of a better name.

HMU if you're interested in exchanging traffic.

Learning that people suffering from the storm and blackout in Texas were using the guide in our book Recipes for Disaster to build a rocketstove with which to heat food and water, we've put the directions online here in their entirety:

Still salty over the fact that our various Gitlab instances (by our, I mean fediverse developers) still don't federate.

ForgeFed is such a great idea, and would make it so much easier to collaborate with different devs on different projects (and file bugs).

When asked about fears of automation in 1969, Arthur C. Clarke famously said that we shouldn't worry about automation: "the goal of the future is full unemployment, so we can play." I have never seen his answer quoted in full.

@cwebber Libre phone software was definitely lost in the wilderness for the last decade. Google's Android bait and switch sucked the air out of that room it seems.

That said in less than a year progress has been outstanding. I did a bit of OS hopping with my #PinePhone and have settled on #Mobian right now. In about 8 months performance, battery life and reliability have made huge improvements, at least with my Mobian experience.

The main issue for me now is very slow web browser.

OSS project too byzantine for any newcomer? just add another ALLUPPSERCASE.md to the repo, that should solve it

Here's how to create a Signal TLS proxy using a DigitalOcean droplet:

1. When creating the droplet, select Docker as the type.
2. Provision the droplet as usual, ssh in.
3. If you already have a domain, you can select a subdomain as the proxy domain. Setup an A DNS record to point to your droplet's IP address.
4. Follow all instructions here: signal.org/blog/help-iran-reco
5. Allow TCP and UDP traffic over 80 and 443 (ufw allow 80/tcp, etc)

Please boost and share. DM me for proxy.

I think I can explain the difference between Twitter and Mastodon like this.

Me: I'm having a problem with Zoom on Linux

Twitter: Switch to a Mac!

Mastodon: Why are you using Zoom you capitalist bastard?
