Please remember: #Signal is not a trustworthy application at all. There are many reasons for that and you found some good collected within a blog post, done recently. #Stop-Playing-Bullshit

Anybody else use #Tox? Or #Wire or #Matrix I suppose, but I just installed Tox so I'm curious to hear people's experiences with it.

Common problems or mistakes? Particularly good uses?

I'm looking for #Signal alternatives mostly, since I don't want everyone I message to also be able to text me (for obvious fucking reasons) and extra numbers are obnoxious. So, opinions?

PS: Don't recommend #WhatsApp pls. I've done at least that much of my own homework.

In case you're wondering about the relationship of your #OpenBSD access point to the hashcat WPA2 PMKID crack, don't worry: Your threat level hasn't changed.

I've written down the details here: marc.info/?l=openbsd-misc&m=15

A couple of people from various instances have mentioned that #Mastodon is confusing at first. So I decided to write a comprehensive guide on how to get started with Mastodon.

Hopefully this helps new users to Mastodon. Please do Boost if you feel it could be useful to others.

Are there other open source/libre antiviruses than #ClamAV and #Immunet? I was very disappointed by their numerous false positives...

@switchingsocial ?
