I've finally got round to setting up my @keyoxide profile. I really like the service so far, but was wondering if there was any plan to implement @libravatar (or other alternative) in place of . Thoughts?

I'm looking to set my partner up with a soft wallet for storing primarily . Personally I use a hard wallet, but want to see what the best options are for trusted, secure software on a machine running . Also need app options for .

Been stuck to my desk this past week but it's been worth it, and I'm edging closer to releasing my Digital Privacy Essentials course.

I now have a fresh install of LMS running on my server, and will be spending the next few days customising the theme and tweaking other settings.

I'll then wrap up the final unit of the course, test and upload, adding various activities and resources in the LMS, before announcing the full release.

interface renaming anyone? On multiple occasions I've had issues. For some reason my loopback interface is called "rename1". Support assures me this is normal/default config, but it just doesn't make sense to me. Why not "lo" for loopback, and why did it get renamed in the first place? Soon I'm just going to get rid and start fresh with trusty .

If you're interested or just want to share some ideas/thoughts, let me know. Maybe we could all put our minds together in a chatroom or similar.

First time testing web for courses today. Now I can really appreciate the importance and added value of well-written alt text for images, having labels etc. I tested with the screen reader software .

Do you have any thoughts, tips or resources related to accessibility?

I would love to try flashing a with /#Libreboot at some point, but after seeing what it involves (flash plugs etc.), I'm not so sure I want to step any closer to the edge of that rabbit hole. I can already see the hours of trial and error and stress, with potentially nothing to show for it. I have a habit of putting too much on my plate...

To all devs, I'm an experienced and , so please get in touch if you need my (free) services (e.g. for ). I'll happily give as much time as I can spare.

I've joined @codeberg and will add my projects soon. I'm also keen to collaborate where I can on others' projects, so get in touch if you have any ideas! (At present I'm comfortable with , and , but I only know basic (actively learning).)

My priority project at the moment is still my course, and I recently developed my first custom theme (which you'll find at my and ).

And on to the next unit I go for my course . This unit will be covering the 'defenders of digital rights' πŸ” ✊ , such as @privacyint @eff @torproject. :gnu:

Who wants to feature in the 'Why Privacy Matters' unit I'm working on for my course ? Just reply to this toot with your 'privacy pitch' - how you would explain to someone that matters. Any responses used will be anonymised and I will let you know if you're featured. Thanks!

I'm really considering investing in a @PINE64 , and will probably aim to run @debian on it. Have you got one? Let me know your thoughts.

I keep going to contribute to the documentation of projects I care about on @gitlab, e.g. @nextcloud, and noticing a account is required. Why is there still so much reliance on GitHub for repos on GitLab? Can anyone recommend projects to contribute to on ? I was pleased to notice @lineageos is on there...

I've reached a milestone with my course, . The course theme is complete and I'm giving it back to the community under a GPLv3 licence: gitlab.com/5am/adapt-freelearn

This pandemic means a lot of people are now having to choose appropriate communication tools, but it's a minefield out there. Understandably the right choice is unclear for many without the patience or experience. This is why we the community, knowing everyone needs privacy and security, must help family and friends utilise those tools we all know and love, software which puts people before profit. and education is essential in these strange times.
