Considering it. Just need to look into the how. I do have two personal VPSs.

Yes I'm occasionally active on the @privacytools channel in , and I love what @matrix are doing, so it's definitely something I've considered. I'd mainly want somewhere public I could get likeminded people together to discuss what I term - created using .

Arguments for/against running my own channel? My understanding is it's a big responsibility and a lot of effort (especially if public and popular). What are the essential things to consider?

I'm really keen to get involved with the @debian Debian Academy platform, so I've joined the channel (-academy on ) and I'm hoping to contribute in any way with writing/dev/design/proofreading, using authoring and tools like and etc.

@lps Indeed. It baffles me, but I try to see it objectively too, which is easier when I remember that I was once in the same position: not caring much for privacy and security. It's amazing what's changed in the last two years since I discovered Snowden, related people/topics and this whole amazing community.

I had an especially similar moment recently when asked by my work to give feedback about our home working, in which I proposed all home workers start using the company . I don't expect much will come of it but I also trust our IT's decision.

@nikolal I expect this also means the gov will always be reluctant to take action against . They're in bed with them essentially (consider 's relationship with police etc.)

I've finally figured out the tool for managing my credentials. It works nicely and I've also managed to set up a challenge-response key for use with .

Someone please explain how I can manage my OTPs with the Yubikey Authenticator 'ykman' tool (now that there is a bug in the preventing normal launch. The CLI is confusing me. It says (correctly) I have slot 1 programmed on my key (multiple 2FA creds for various sites), but I can't see any way of listing or using them.

Hello Mastodon! We are looking for a consultant to write some guides on how to protect yourself from online tracking.

So if you have technical experience on the topic, know github and markdown and are capable of writing easy to follow guides for non technical audience... this is for you!

Indeed, I had a mind to install Wireshark this morning and become reacquainted with it. I have my network locked down pretty well, and the router has a traffic monitoring feature, but it doesn't seem to work.

If I were to have an in-home display for a installed, which had to be connected to my home , but claims to not access the internet, how could I verify this at the level?
