Quelqu'un a de l'experience avec #BorgBackup vers du stockage en ligne, genre s3 ou autre ?

8-character passwords can now be brute-forced by computers that can try all 6 quadrillion permutations in 2 and a half hours, but really, any good password system should lock the user out after the first quadrillion guesses. By the second quadrillion, it's probably safe to assume that it's not a legitimate login attempt.

Calling all #Fediverse admins of instances in the #EU. The #CopyrightDirective is coming, we need to show the MEPs how massively the EU Internets will be affected.

We are preparing a list of all EU-based #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, and any other instances.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

Time to update: there's a new version of Tor Browser available.

Tor Browser 8.0.6 updates Firefox to 60.5.1esr, fixing some vulnerabilities in the Skia library. Full changelog:

In french, when two persons greet each other, they usually say "ça va ?", which roughtly means "are you ok ?".

I hate this.
It's binary. Either you're perfectly OK in all your life, either you're not.

And if you dare to say you're not ok… Usually the talk ends abruptly, because the other person was not asking you if you were ok (yeah kind of paradoxal, ain't it ?) but was just saying hello.

When I ask someone if they are ok, I *mean* it.

"ça va" is shit. "comment te sens-tu" is way better. ("are you ok" vs "how do you feel").

Because I try to convey the fact that I *do* care and I *want* to know. To interact.

Please take care of each other.

Nur no ei mol schloofe! Just one more nights sleep! 😱

Would fediverse friends want to attend an ActivityPubPub (well, more dinner than drinks) after-FOSDEM-on-Saturday gathering?

Hey, Fediverse. I see more and more bridges between Twitter and here. And why I don’t think it’s inherently the worst thing ever, you’re doing it wrong. So many twitter links, missing images, and posts with missing context. Either be better or don’t do it at all.

“Just install Linux on it” is the “just change the engine of your car” of tech.

Not everyone is a mechanic, not everyone wants to be a mechanic, and, if we want a world where freedom is the norm, we must stop expecting everyone to become a mechanic.

Note: this is not because these people are too dumb to be mechanics. It’s because they’re brain surgeons and space-shuttle pilots and they have three kids and they care for a loved one and they don’t have time to also be a mechanic.

I’ll be live on Al Jazeera News Grid ~ 15:35-15:55 today to discuss Facebook’s consolidation of Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram.

Expect my best what-the-fuck-were-you-expecting face and some slowly boiling frogs analogies 🍵🐸

Anybody on, you should consider no longer being on

In the not too distant future this account may not be able to interact with them due to ass-hattery on the part of the admin.

Also, this is a distributed network, one node that is something like 90% of the network goes against that. Don't support Gargrons refusal to accept accessibility as a good idea and being all cagey about funding sources.
