There was recently a lot of news about DNS over HTTPS. Some people say it's bad for privacy because it centralizes the DNS requests on Google, Cloudflare and Quad9.

Time to change that and run your own DNS over HTTPS server. I spend some time today in writing, documenting and arranging a small container setup to allow you to do this:

Climate change presented us with a choice: Stop growth, move out, or dig down.
We dug down, literally, a billion years ago. Had to give up growth. Hydroponics, recycle, vent excess heat into an atmosphere so lethal we can't move out.
Planet-locked on the second rock from the sun.

while i have mastodon open, a great thing i've found yesterday: a website with all kinds of Raspberry Pi SD card images loaded with ready to use emulators, complete with BIOSes and collections of games. I can imagine that the largest 256GB images contain full legacy of 8- and 16-bit computers and a lot of CD-era games too. Behold:

Oi @keybase , you know who just sent me a reminder that my key will expire in a few days? Facebook. You know what keybase contacted me about? Your altcoin and random people following me.

To everyone who still makes text-based tutorials, thank you!

I'd much rather follow a text tutorial than wait 15+ minutes for a video tutorial to load.

Your work is very much underappreciated. Thanks again! 💜

Brilliant satire on modern web development.

Mira is a famous star in the autumn sky. The name means "Wonderful." Over a period of 332 days it brightens to an apparent magnitude of 3 which is rather bright to the naked eye. At its dimmest it drops down to 10 which is impossible to detect with any naked body part.

Google is currently on witchhunt for alternative #YouTube frontends: They target the services as well as their users.

In the last week, #Invidious instances first got IP banned, and once that was circumvented stopped via heavy rate limits.

Now they manage to associate #NewPipe users with google accounts somehow, and suspend these accounts:
github.com/TeamNewPipe/NewPipe

Now that these frontends got #Google's attention, I don't think we can sustain this cat & mouse game for long. 😔

At a Polish train station. The announcer keeps saying "poCHUNK".

This mostly makes up for my (German) train being delayed 50 minutes.

Also, "Wrocław" is awesome. I highly recommend spending 4 hours here.

poCHUNK!
