Tech drama. GNU/Linux/BSD user.

Arguing that you don’t care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don’t care about free speech because you have nothing to say. — Edward Snowden

I have been translating Tusky to Swedish for a couple of months now. It is a great and fuzzy feeling when there is a great FOSS-project we all can contribute to.

The last weeks the head developer @ConnyDuck@chaos.social(https://chaos.social/@ConnyDuck) has tested a couple of different translation projects, like Crowdin(https://crowdin.com/) and now lately Weblate(https://weblate.org/), we both prefer the latter since it is open source and possible to host on your own infrastructure.

I've just donated $12 to Tusky. Consider donating too, every little helps! https://opencollective.com/tusky?referral=32452

Spleen is the new default font in OpenBSD, thanks to Frederic Cambus.

Monospaced bitmap fonts for consoles, terminals, and code editors.

available in 5 sizes: 1. 5x8 2. 8x16 3. 12x24 4. 16x32 5. 32x64

I personally installed the fonts on both Mac OS X and Arch Linux without any issues. The fonts are looking really great.

As seen on reddit. CloudFlare's 1.1.1.1 public DNS manually manipulates the .org zone for its users, setting a scary precedent.

This is a list I wrote about a year ago, but it's still accurate:

  • It's not really free. It's like a drug dealer “First ones free”.
  • Shared SSL certificates
  • Forced to use Comodo for SSL. Comodo's CEO is a sleazebag.
  • Can't use Let's Encrypt for SSL
  • Can't use your own SSL
  • Decrypts SSL traffic, breaking End-To-End Encryption.
  • Cooperates with tyrannical governments
  • Provides services to terrorists, child pornographers, and so on
  • Has no “vetting” process for new customers
  • Does not protect your website from hacking
  • Doesn't provide any value to 99% of websites
  • Cloudflare's CEO is an ego-maniac who believes he controls the entire internet.

More details on SSL decryption:

Keyless SSL requires that Cloudflare decrypt, inspect and re-encrypt traffic > for transmission back to a customer’s origin.''

Source: https://www.cloudflare.com/ssl/keyless-ssl/

By doing that, Cloudflare is violating the trust between users and server operators and making the SSL certificate itself worthless. A website cannot be considered “Secure” if the traffic is decrypted by a man in the middle.

This was something just introduced into Mastodon 2.6 I believe. Quite interesting. Here's my mastodon account.

I usually use Vultr, my referral link to host my cloud images for misc purposes. I also got a couple of VPS running OpenBSD.

I used Romans awesome guide for upgrading it to 6.4.

Hi! I have been real busy recently with my new studies. I am studying Programme in Specialist Nursing – Prehospital Nursing for 50% at the same time I am working 85%. To top that up I got a family with two wildering kids of the ages 5 and 2. So this is time consuming.

Hopefully you understand why I have not got the time to write anything for a long time.

As far as I know there is not many cloud providers offering opensuse, so I pulled up my own image to vultr. Since they allow me to use practically any ISO of my choosing.

I just signed up for reddit, once again.

As you may have seen before I deleted my account since I do not like what reddit has become.

But for reasons I have considered, since I removed myself from the service, I feel the need to read/write on some subreddits.

#reddit

On OpenBSD, FreeBSD, Void Linux, Manjaro, Debian, Fedora and more..

I read an article found here.

This article is written back in 2015, a wee bit old as pointed out by kungtotte.

kungtotte – @iah buyer beware if you want to use Windows ever and use the same editor. Vim8 works a lot better on that platform and it supports async now too. It's fairly trivial to turn an init.vim into a vimrc or vice versa though, so I guess it's moot.
