Pinned toot

@guizzy @lain I'm really pretty tired of this "Pleroma/GNU Social/SomethingElse is Nazi software/space" bullshit.

I had a StatusNet account until Evan killed identi.ca years ago; a shit-ton of great people I talk with here every day have accounts on Pleroma or GNU Social. Some are their developers.

benefited handsomely from there being a large community of dedicated people in Fediverse before Mastodon was a thing. Let's acknowledge that and stop being so condescending.

time! I'm a hacktivist, free software advocate, strong supporter of free and open internet. Used to be a policy hacker. Co-founded the Warsaw Hackerspace.

Currently trying to make sure journalists at @OCCRP have the tools and training to safely expose corruption and organized crime.

Also, I bake bread, sail, and dance Lindy Hop. So, there's that.

This is why we need secure defaults. “People are dumb” is a copout. We need to give them better tools.

US “Zero Tolerance” Policy May Increase Organized Crime

The stated purpose of the policy was to lower crime rates by prosecuting everyone who crosses the border illegally and removing the possibility for asylum until after they have been prosecuted.

However, the new regulation will only increase the demand for illegal methods of border crossing, argues Steven Dudley, the co-director of InSight Crime.

Maybe media.ccc.de just needs to federate with peertube.

FYI, did same for Piwik/Matomo and Nextcloud:

Will need to add READMEs to these two at some point. But they're very similar to Snipe-IT (PHP apps, php-fpm container downloading and installing stuff automagically, configuration via envvars, automagic upgrade/migration script ran every time the container is restarted).

@rysiek I was also thinking zoobab, not sure where he hangs out in the fediverse -- he did a lot of work with Pieter Hintjens back when software patents were on the table (thank you, Poland!)

Needed an asset management system (who's a big org now? we are! yes we are!), Snipe-IT looked good:

We're a docker shop, so I looked at the official docker image:

Ugh, Apache and php-fpm running side by side in a single container? No way to set uid/gid of the php-fpm process? Absolutely haram.

So I dockerized it in a way less crufted (and more flexible) way:

Enjoy! :)

@rysiek Of course they will. What arguments shall we prepare in response? (Serious question. Let's do some coalition-building.)

IRC_Buddy : "My Wordpress websites are again infected !"

As a reminder, I wrote a website protection software based on the Python Watchdog library.

That's why I wrote Chiwawa, to counter security problems in those CMS (Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal etc...)

so apparently telling musk to that if he really cares about freedom he should turn his business into a workers coop is a violation of twitters rules
