Da eh niemand mehr weiß, was eine Diskette ist, zeigt VirtualBox jetzt als Symbol für "Speichern" eine SD-Karte an. ;-)

Beim Windows 10 Upgrade auf Version 2004 werden alle Startmenü-Sucheingaben an Microsoft gesendet. Soweit nichts Neues. Neu ist: Es lässt sich für Windows 10 Home und Pro User nicht mehr über die Registry deaktivieren. Abhilfe über die Firewall, wo man "Windows Search" blockieren muss. Microsoft und Datenschutz werden wohl nie Freunde.

the unusual type of asymmetric internet connections... (I'm a bit concerned about the "faster than 58% of DE" part though as these are pretty shitty speeds)

#XMPP #Jabber
@iNPUTmice@twitter.com:

The upcoming audio and video calls in Conversations require server side support.
You need at least a STUN server (unless you are on the same WiFi) and in some cases (mostly mobile networks) a TURN server.
In the spirit of federated systems those wont be hard coded.

Mein Freifunk-Node wird in letzter Zeit auch ganz gut genutzt... Teilweise bis zu 9 Clients auf der kleinen Kiste.

Things Covid has proven:

1. The job you were told couldn't be done remotely can be done remotely

2. Many disabled workers could have been working from home, but corporations just didn't want them to.

3. Internet is a utility, not a luxury.

4. Universal healthcare is a necessity.

According to law, you should be able to use your own router to connect to the internet in #Germany. But @mxmehl and Lucas experienced soft and hard barriers against #RouterFreedom.

Deswegen lieber #Debian oder mit einfacherer Installation #sparkylinux
@JordiGH@mathstodon.xyz:

#Ubuntu is placing ads in its motd when you ssh in.

The way it fetches this ad is by doing

USER_AGENT="curl/$curl_ver $lsb $platform $cpu $uptime cloud_id/$cloud_id"

curl -A "$USER_AGENT" ...

In other words, Ubuntu is sending Canonical tracking information so it can serve you an ad.

This doesn't exactly run every time you log in (it caches the ad in /var/cache), but still... phoning home for a frickin ad?

Endlich spricht es mal eine #Partei aus: Neben vielen guten anderen Punkten fordern die Grünen die Bundesregierung dazu auf, bei der #EU #Ökodesign #Richtlinie die Hersteller von Elektrogeräten dazu zu verpflichten, "nach dem Supportende für ein Elektrogerät den Softwarecode unter einer #freien #Lizenz zu veröffentlichen".
