I'd also like to give a shout-out to https://desec.io who sadly don't appear to have any social media presence, so I'd like to draw some attention to them here. deSEC is a Berlin based free secure DNS provider running exclusively on #FOSS, who aim to make #DNSSEC features easily available. They provide both a #dynamicdns and #hosteddns service and run a global #Anycast network. An #opensource #DNS is the perfect partner for your #awesomeSelfhosted project like @snikket_im #XMPP #fediverse
I'd like to give a shout-out to @snikket_im, and in particular to @mattj for creating this awesome new #XMPP project, as well as a friendly and welcoming support community. Snikket has lowered the bar of entry into the world of XMPP by several orders of magnitude. It takes more time to install/configure your #raspberrypi & prepare your DNS zone than it takes it to install Snikket itself. Anyone who can get Linux running on a Pi can run their own XMPP server thanks to Snikket. #awesomeSelfhosted
It's time to stress a bit more the test instance! 😎
Please feel free to follow many accounts on it so that I could have an idea of how the code and server behave on higher loads.
The instance is available here: https://beta.birdsite.live but please keep in mind that it's a temporary one.
Boosts will be highly appreciated. 😉
Dear #fediverse .. I need your help,
A wonderful #privacy tool is being developed by our member Tijmen.
(He's also the creator of https://socialcooling.com that trended extremely well here on Fedi and on HN)
The tool needs to be translated to all European languages, and its a task that should only take a couple of minutes per translation.
Would you help with your contribution?
Here are instructions how you can: https://community.humanetech.com/t/5072
Thank you 🙏
@mattj Thanks for the information in the Prosody chatroom earlier today. Just sent Snikket a donation to support the project (small donation only, money is tight due being out of work as a result of the pandemic). Looking forward to the release of the build for the Pi!
Anyone still sporting a Fitbit device in the #EU or #UK would do well to read this https://bit.ly/2M2LY2c. As the recent changes at #WhatsApp demonstrate, companies make such promises to appease regulators, only to break them at the earliest opportunity. Vague wording like "won't use certain data" does nothing to inspire trust. @privacyint

There are risks associated with attending a protest, and taking steps to mitigate them can go a long way in ensuring you—and the data you value—are kept safe https://ssd.eff.org/en/module/attending-protest
@sengi_app Just installed Sengi for Linux. Looking pretty slick! I'll use this for a while instead of the web client, see how we get on 😃
Why is this not being mentioned more? This has to be the most suitable Messenger for all the protestors right now. Private, untraceable, no central servers, blog, public(contact only) announcements, functions as a mesh network during internet outages.
If you know of anyone on the front lines right now, let them know, so they can spread the word.
