Now I get why people are reluctant to use SDs in their #RaspberryPi. I have what's quite clearly a worn or corrupted SD (which is used for the whole filesystem). I'm getting #dpkg fatal errors, terminal quirks and all sorts of funny business. Fingers crossed a #fsck can do the trick. If not, I'll need to reinstall everything :( I think I should invest in an m.2 adapter or just plug in a spare SSD via USB and mount the filesystem on that. Any better suggestions? I use this Pi 24/7 for #DNS.
What the F*** is #Microsoft doing in my Pi's apt sources list. This is some bitter irony - I use this almost exclusively for #Pihole. I was wondering what all the hype was about recently and now it's clear. Where can I find out more about why this has happened and what, if anything, is being done about it?

"My vision for #freelearning content was always – and largely still is – about raising awareness of, and educating people about, #privacy, #security, #decentralisation and free open source software (#FOSS)..."
I've now created a public #freelearning #Element room at freelearningfoss:matrix.org -- My intention is to use this room to bring together anyone interested in contributing to #elearning made with #FOSS. I may soon start a range of courses on #Linux subjects. Join the room and share your thoughts!
"Easy to use OpenStreetMap editor for Android"
"Help to improve the OpenStreetMap with StreetComplete!
This app finds incomplete and extendable data in your vicinity and displays it on a map as markers. Each of those is solvable by answering a simple question to
complete the info on site.
The info you enter is then directly added to the OpenStreetMap in your name, without the need to use another editor."
Update: we just got a call from a Google VP who explained the suspension was triggered by a report of extremely abusive content accessible on the http://matrix.org server. Our trust & safety team had already acted on it, and the app should be reinstated shortly.
It was all going great with my #Fail2Ban #SSH jails on two of my VPSs until I changed the port SSH listens on. F2B seems to only work when SSH port is 22. Anyone experienced this? I wasted enough hours debugging this that I've now removed F2B out of frustration.
Don't know how to code but still want to contribute to open projects? Consider open street maps!
OSM is the community built map of the world. Anyone can edit the map and all the data is freely available and usable in any of your projects.
Start in your own neighborhood. Maybe your street is missing or named wrong. Update the corner shop hours. Map the parks or sidewalks. Anything helps and many hands make light work!

Looking for feedback:
While exploring new possibilities to become more long term sustainable in maintaining our expenses independently from institutions, some are investigating the idea of offering merch.
Not only to help and promote Tails, but also to offer useful products while raising awareness for social and environmental struggle related to them.
After all, Tails exists to help those fighting for social justice and we try to apply the same values to our potential merch store.
I was recently recommended https://tryhackme.com and I can confirm it's a brilliant site. I've been going down the #Kali rabbit hole recently and it's great to have a site like this with lots of interactive #elearning, a lot of which is free. I may even submit my own learning content someday.
