Here's a little thing that may not be obvious to many people....

When you install an open-source app from Google Play or the Apple app store, there is no guarantee that what you install actually matches the public code.

@fdroidorg are doing a great service. They independently build the public source code for apps from scratch, review for common issues, and publish their builds. Thanks to "reproducible builds" it's possible to verify they do not tamper with the code.

Right - after initially letting me post it, it appears that FB has now worked out what my redirect points to... and now blocks any posting of my redirect link... so we have to work out how to block FB from following the link...

So... I've just set up a redirection domain. If you're using Facebook, and want to direct people to you can use this domain: (I want to see if FB decides to block this one as well!)

Climate Change Is The Greatest Threat To Public Health, Top Medical Journals Warn

The rapidly warming climate is the "greatest threat" to global public health, more than 200 medical journals are warning in an unprecedented joint statement that urges world leaders to cut heat-trapping emissions to avoid "catastrophic harm to health that will be impossible to reverse."

The editorial, which was published in leading journals such as The Lancet, The New England Journal of Medicine and the British Medical Journal, says the world can't wait for the COVID-19 pandemic to pass before addressing climate change.

And, building on that early success, she's now doing her 3rd batch (the second one was gifted to various nearby friends via contactless collection - we're in COVID lockdown at the mo)... smellin' lush!

A couple days ago my wife said "what the heck. I'ma trying my hand at makin' bagels". And she did. And they are stunners.

So I just posted a comment on a Facebook post by our NZ Privacy Commissioner bemoaning the privacy threat of the mega multinational tech social media (Google/Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, etc.)... while remaining in complete apparent denial that there's another way - yes, the Fediverse. I posted a comment citing ... and Facebook autoblocked the submission of the post... and without explanation of why it was blocked (I also put links to a few Mastodon instances in it).

And when I say "fascinating" I really mean "you're a sack of assholes, Google".

@lightweight I don't think it's personal. I also get a 10/10, I've had my domain for 20+ years, but Gmail insists in classifying it as spam.

It's really sad that this is the state of email these days, and that there's almost nothing we can do.

@lightweight Hi, welcome to my world. I more and more find electronic services closing me out, mis-flagging, etc. Coordinated? My patterns just match tripwires? Who knows?

I'm just glad that (so far) it hasn't bled over to the banking and credit side of the world.

But I'm very much a self-hosted services kind of guy. Due originally to philosophy, but now also because it's the best defense.

Facinating... Gmail is spam binning my self-hosted email despite reporting a 10/10 compliance with all relevant creds and that I'm not on any blacklists... Hard not to take this personally. **scratches chin

And yes, their music is available in lossless format FLAC with no DRM: delvonlamarrorgantrio.bandcamp I encourage folks to buy their music on Bandcamp! Waaaay better than buying it via various walled gardens.

Schools should be using #Nextcloud.

At least, that's what the French government thinks!

What do YOU think?

Dave Lane boosted

@lightweight Yep, we probably need to be pushing for constitutional reforms that put in requirements for data sovereignty that make that not a choice. And not just for defence things (which seem to be more okay with MS and Google controlling things than I would have expected), but for any data about a citizen that the government collects in any way.
