Christchurch, recommendation to turn off autoplay Show more
If you have auto play enabled anywhere I'd recommend turning it off. One of the shooters took a video and it's getting heavy circulation. It's not immediately obvious it isn't a game because of how it's filmed.
Fuck the arsehole who thought it was a good idea to come to my fucking country and walk into a peaceful mosque and kill people. Fuck you, you're the scum of the earth and you don't deserve to be called Human. You're an evil fuckwit who has robbed people of their loved ones.
RIP to those who met their untimely end today in Christchurch, New Zealand. ☠️
I had to pause this and put on meditation playlist

http://www.ecosnippets.com/environmental/bhutan-planted-108000-trees/ In Buddhism, a tree is the provider and nourisher of all life forms,’ said Tenzin Lekphell, who coordinated the initiative. ‘It symbolizes longevity, health, beauty and even compassion.” They chose to plant 108,000 because, in Buddhism, 108 is a sacred number.

I just got an email from Have I Been Pwned (#HIBP) saying that one of my email addresses was part of a recently revealed data breach.
"The unique email addresses totalled 772,904,991."
"There are 21,222,975 unique passwords."
The article doesn't give many details about the breach itself, just how to use their products to protect yourself. I dislike that but this is still important to share in case someone is seriously affected by this breach.
@pixelfed well thats a good argument for leaving pixelfed.social registrations open.
The smaller instances on a new fediverse tend to be more volatile so will come and go. Pixelfed will need at least one instance that ppl can rely on until more instances become more robust 😊
We just learned that pix.hostux.social has shut down.
We are sad to hear that, we have re-opened registrations in case any users want to join a reliable instance!

I've decided to go dark on all social media, including Mastodon, for the rest of 2018. Here's why I'm doing it - and how to stay in touch with me.
@halfcutskeleton @ordinarylava yes, it's the constant battle against keeping an eye on changed settings when a new browser comes out quite regularly that wears people down. And unchecking the default google, bing or amazon search in firefox is something people can forget to do. That possum extension which deliberately sends out false data is a good idea too. disrupts the #SurveillancecCapitalism algorithms. lol
I would say that adding privacy badger and possum, noscript, and decentraleyes is probably a MORE secure solution. It's just a matter of where your security/convenience line is.
@dublinux you can also add HTTPS Everywhere, Privacy Possum and Decentraleyes.
