@skiant A mistake of mine was, after unchecking all the boxes, going to the Tumblr privacy settings and unchecking the “Cookie consent” checkbox.
It's a fake option: If you just click on the box to unselect it, you are brought back to the Oath privacy disclaimer, but this time ALL the checkboxes are checked back again!
Go read they shitty website in which they try to justify their invasion of your privacy, and also minimize the rights you have to control that data: https://www.oath.com/en-gb/my-data/
Tumblr tried to sneak in data collection under the radar. After a few taps, you can get a list of who they're sharing data with.
The list takes 19 screenshots to see all the names on my phone.
When I look at what I just said, I am giving insight into why I am more flexible with technology than others: I am playing a different game.
Folks want to be distracted, or connected, or be seen a certain way, or to make money... there are a lot of reasons to use technology.
I want to survive. Mobile phones are not helping me survive, they are turning my world into a boring zombie apocalypse. Insidious.

GitLab open sourced push mirroring and added it core. This is a great win for #decentralization!!! You can now run your own canonical GitLab instance & easily mirror to GitHub for findability.
Another reason why GitLab is #1
Think about opening your new project on gitlab.com instead of #github. Later on you can migrate it to your own server. github = dead end
Over at #PageKite, I blogged a "Happy GDPR Day!" blog post:
We didn't send anyone any cringe-worthy e-mails, because we're not that kind of business. AFAICT, our TOS and practices were already just fine.
But I wrote a little bit about how we handle our users' data. People deserve to know.
So I go watch a superhero movie (Black Panther) just to get my head out of reality for 2 hours, and they say someting like this in it:
"that's what our US intelligence operatives do: destabilize countries in election year"
then I think of the US-staged truck driver strike in Chile 1971 prior to putting Pinochet in power
then I remember it's election year in Brazil and we currently have an ongoin truck driver strike
Really do not like being tracked. Now have gps and dashcams in work vans. So now I have to drive in fear of speeding and someone watching me pick my nose. Actually, the latter doesn’t matter as I pointed the inside one to the roof. Guess I’ll join the queue of traffic dawdling around 15 below the speed limit, which will make my job take a lot longer ugh.
