@nikolal @resist1984 @marc0janssen This is getting away from the OP request for suggestions. You could slowly limit your use of WhatsApp, not respond to them in a timely manner and mention that Signal is the best way to contact you. Don't cut off WA completely but make it a little painful. Most people have lots of apps, so ask them to kindly install Signal, what's one more really going to hurt?
@nikolal @marc0janssen @resist1984 Briar is excellent, and it no longer required scanning QR codes. From my review:
"7/7/2019- Update: You can now add remote contacts by exchanging Briar URLs. In the contacts list choose the "Add contact at a distance" option and enter the Briar URL of your remote contact which they will need to send you via another channel. This is also where you will see your own Briar URL to send to others."

"Over the last few decades, we have become far too connected. Always On-Line."
This resonates so well with my thinking lately. I have removed email from my current phone. I bought a Casio digital watch (it only tells time). I want to move to a #pinephone so what do I really want in a phone? Calling, contacts, a camera, music, podcasts.
"This type of “warrant-proof” encryption adds little to the security of the communications of the ordinary user, but it is a serious benefit for those who use the internet for illicit purposes."
So wrong, encryption has just as much benefit if not more for ordinary users.
Does anyone know of an European IT company hiring English speakers? I am willing to learn the local language, but I will probably not have full proficiency on day one.
I'm thinking Ireland, Switzerland, Germany, Norway, Finland, although I can also consider Canada, New Zealand, Australia and other countries outside of Europe.
Please, contact me or let me know where I can apply!
@L1Cafe I recall Protonmail and Tutanota advertised job openings recently. What type of work are you looking for?
How the Drug War Broke Policing | Cato @ Liberty
"We should absolutely reform unions, abolish qualified immunity, and address how police are investigated after excessive force is used. But it is also important that we look to one of the root causes of why the police no longer have that wholesome, Norman Rockwell image. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that, every day, thousands of police suit up to go to war against their fellow citizens."

This makes me sad :-(
People are still going to hike to the spot. What are they going to do with it, destroy it or put it up for display? That would be a shame.
@marc0janssen I just saw you use a Mac, so do I ( as well as Linux but the Mac is my main system). My current setup for backup is using Acronis True Backup to do a full backup to the cloud which is encrypted. I also use Mega.nz to backup my entire Documents folder (and use the Mega app on other systems to locally sync the files I need). Then in have a Time Machine external drive.
@marc0janssen How about another Synology at a friend's house?
@marc0janssen I would be interested in your Docker adventures. I have become more familiar with them through our use of dockers on my employer's web server, and I run my own Bitwarden docker on a VPS. But I am always finding new things to learn about how docker works.
