Experimenting with a solar panel + battery for backup / portable power. Getting 40 W out of a 60 W panel at 10 am; not too shabby. I'll probably need to move it again when the sun gets higher.

Dear Mastodon, we're ~60 followers away from 12K! Can you help us get there?

Help by spreading the word that:

🔵 Privacy is a human right.

🔵 Tracking & surveillance are widespread on the internet.

🔵 Tor is a nonprofit that can help you take back your privacy online.

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:

New: Anonymous GitLab ticketing at Tor. Our outreachy intern Maria Violante is working on an exciting project that allows collaborators to submit anonymous tickets to the Tor Project. The Anonymous Ticket Portal system is ready for you to test!

New on our blog: we’re continuing an annual tradition of reviewing news stories that mentioned Tor last year. Our goal is to highlight changes in the conversation about privacy & censorship, and to identify the ways the media discusses Tor in this context: blog.torproject.org/tor-media-

The Tor Project is hiring for two roles:

* Software Developer for the Anti-Censorship Team

* Metrics Data Architect

Now is the chance to join a group of passionate folks committed to fostering internet freedom worldwide.


Stumbled across "rucking" (walking with a loaded rucksack) as an alternative cardio to running. I like the idea and enjoyed a test "ruck" of 2 miles with 15 lbs of books in a backpack. Simple way to add a bit more intensity to a walk, without the impact of running.

The online communities skew a bit towards military and military wannabes (ehhhh), but also have some folks like me who just like low-key outdoor exercise

I didn't miss, but did manage to roll it out - got away without so much as a scrape. 😅

Was trying out a gopro-clip-mount on my skateboard. I was moving too slow with my weight too far forward and caught a crack in the sidewalk. It was also my first time using this board in a while and my muscle memory hadn't adjusted yet. Whoops!


We're hiring a Software Developer for our Anti-Censorship Team.

This developer will work to improve the user experience and process of finding alternate routes to the Tor network when global censorship events block access. FT & remote.

I don't understand why people find DNS so difficult, it’s just cache invalidation and naming things

11/ So #Signal gives people: dead-simple setup, store-and-forward delivery, encrypted everything, encrypted voice/video calls, ability to send photos/video encrypted. If you are going to tell someone "it's so EASY to get your texts away from Facebook and AT&T", THIS IS THE THING you've got to point them to. It may not be in 2 years, but for now, it is. Do not let the perfect be the enemy of the good. It advances the status quo without harming usability, which nothing else does yet.
