Here is a countdown website:

VDS (empört) „Irgendwas mit Gender!!!“
ZDF: „Ihr seid also Überschriftenkommentierer…“

Good morning to everybody who is viewing publicly available HTML code in a browser today

lukewarm take: if you can afford to own a domain name for personal use, you should, even if only so that you can take your email address with you like a phone number if you decide to switch providers.

yes, i'm also about to tell you it's a good idea to leave gmail.

Diese Dohle wohnt standesgemäss in einer herrlich grossen Kolonie in der Workumer Kirche...

So gehört es sich!


This is among the most important media files I have saved on my computer.

Der Weltnormentag, englisch World Standards Day, wird jährlich am 14. Oktober begangen. Es ist ein Gedenktag, der von der Internationalen Organisation für Normung (ISO), der International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) und der Internationalen Fernmeldeunion (ITU) ins Leben gerufen wurde.


In den USA wird der Weltnormentag in der Regel an einem vom Standard abweichenden Termin gefeiert, der vom ANSI festgelegt wird. 2020 ist das der 22. Oktober.[5]

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy was published 42 years ago today.


Stolen from another social network:

> When you've written an academic paper, the best practice is to hire a troupe of singers and dancers to rehearse and perform a full-length show based on the paper. Ideally this should be on a dock by the ocean, in full view of passing ships. No work is really sound until it has been subjected to a pier revue.

This is a great achievment for the fediverse: it is now used by malware (in this case, to find the C&C, or C2, the Command and Control center where the malware will take instructions).

Do note the stupid remark (a typical one from some security fans) saying that the fediverse is not censored enough.

(The account mentioned in the article is already suspended.)

Looking for a vulnerability management software in which you can import a list of Debian packages, Python packages, Go modules, etc, and that will keep track of the vulnerabilities and alert me. Do you have any recommendation? Bonus point if it is libre.

This new paper shows the massive failure of GDPR/e-Privacy enforcement on apps:

* 81,4% of Android apps contacted a tracking domain during start (before consent)
* 86.1% of Android apps could access the AdId
* Children apps have an increased prevalence of sharing the Ad-ID than average

And: No clear winner between iOS and Android regarding privacy


The way some websites inform their users about cookies reminds me of this conversation from the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy:

Nach 7 Jahren fallen langsam dir alten Festplatten des RAID Z2 aus.

Dinge die ich gelernt habe:
1. Nutzt ZFS mit RaidZ2 oder Raid6
2. Überwacht den S.M.A.R.T Error-log!
3. Lasst euch automatisch informieren wenn ne Platte suchten macht!
4. Habt Ersatz zur Hand!

Find ich ja ganz lustig, hat aber auch das Geschmäckle vom Moralapostel.

1/500s reicht, um die glatte Wasserschicht auf dem Gefieder sichtbar zu machen, wo das bloße Auge nur Spritzer sieht. Als würde die #Graugans sich in eine Decke aus Wasser wickeln.
