Pinned toot

Oh my ahura mazda, people like my joke and I have accidentally ten times as much followers as before, and stars enough to fabricate a moderately sized nebula.
Now how to tell them that I am boring and not funny? 🙃

Pinned toot

If you've ever wondered why people say tools like Scribus aren't ready for professional production work let me share this blog post by @davidrevoy

This should be a slam dunk. David knows what he's doing and One Bookshelf provides instructions that clearly show how to produce a PDF to their specifications.

We need to do better, folks. Color Profiles that work for everyone except FOSS tools are unacceptable. Period. There are no excuses for this.

New Linux Vulnerability Lets Attackers Hijack VPN Connections

"tracked as CVE-2019-14899 to distros and the Linux kernel security team, as well as to others impacted such as Systemd, Google, Apple, OpenVPN, and WireGuard."

They're still testing Tor.

@aral made such an important speech at the EU commission, packing a lot of stuff.

I cannot stop laughing at this reference, though. 🤣

And as long as the focus of the EU is markets and business, we’re not going to get there. As long as the goal is “Digital Single Market” we have a problem.

♲ Day 104 of complete Internet blockade on Kashmir imposed by govt of India.

Select businesses being allowed by the police to run broadband Internet (landline based, not mobile data) on conditions that no social networking, VPN, file encryption, USB will be used, and so on.


Probably the best WiFi analyzer in the open source world. Reliable, good interface.

One curious observation spending my time here that disproportionately high amount of people reacting on my toots have unusual sexual orientation [based on their self-definition].

Summary reply to :
They have attacked some big sites as ad to sell their attack service. It's like shooting a bunch of kids in the kindergarten to show you're a good assassin to hire. Unrelated to any Wikipedia stuff.

I think it's a proof again that beings 'ing ( or else) have no dicks. Otherwise they could have played with it instead.
