Germany's new government put in on paper: Everyone has a right to encryption! Now the German government has asked the EU Commission difficult questions on the planned EU surveillance law. Will Germany fight for our right to privacy?

Here's a short post mortem for the server outage on Friday and Saturday: A syntax error in a configuration file slipped onto our production web-server. At the same time the server responsible for assembling our website experienced download timeouts when fetching app-listing metadata, which made troubleshooting extra hard. We've added additional tests to catch this type of error before they get a chance to interrupt our services. We're also working on improving web-server architecture.

Something a bit different today...

There's a really nice Fediverse admin on here called @stux who provides lots of free decentralised public services (public instances of Mastodon, PeerTube, Pixelfed, Matrix, Nitter, Invidious, Searx etc).

Stux is spending hundreds of euros a month so that these services remain free and operational.

Apparently Stux has had a tough time finding work recently, but has their own small business which provides web hosting.

If you're looking for a small indie hosting provider, this might be a really good choice as the money raised will help keep the Fedi going too:


(I'm sorry to embarass you Stux, but I think you deserve a shout-out for the good work you do!)

Lasst mal hören liebe Lehrerinnen und Lehrer.
Was braucht eine #Schule neben #EMail, #Internetanschluss, #Moodle, #Nextcloud und #Webspace (inkl. #Domain) für die Homepage noch alles von einem #Internetprovider?

In der Politik unpopular opinion:

Jede (!) Schule bräuchte neben Hausmeister*in in der heutigen Zeit eigentlich eine*n "IT-Meister*in"...falls 1 mal reicht. Aber ihr versteht was ich mein.

Which messengers do you use?

Count only those you actually use somewhat frequently for private/personal use.

Multiple choice poll, boosts and replies welcome.

USB-C will be the new standard port for all Europeans.

This means more savings for EU consumers and less waste for the planet:

🔌 mobile phones, tablets, cameras… will all use USB type C
🔌 harmonised fast-charging technology
🔌 unbundling of sale of chargers


Ok #Fediverse Achtung:

Ich habe #MrWissen2Go gefragt warum er nicht im Fediverse ist. Es gab Antwort. Er schließt es nicht für die Zukunft aus. Er meint es muss "in Vielerlei Hinsicht passen". Was meint ihr passt das? Zeigen wir das wir durchaus schon viele sind?


PS: Je nachdem ob da positive Resonanz zurück kommt, würde ich den Toot (falls großes Interesse da) Mirko zuschicken um zu zeigen es passt.

We have a deal on the common charger! 🇪🇺

#SingleMarket #DigitalEU

🇬🇧 Here is a call! Exodus #application is developed by volunteers, but we want to increase the rhythm. So we're searching for a #Kotlin developer for #Android who would like to help us on this. It's paid, obviously. If you're a #freelance and interested, do not hesitate to contact us!

Ich liebe ja die Bilder der massiv überfüllten Bahnsteige. Ziemlich geiles In-die-Fresse-Signal dafür, wie krass die Bevölkerung für den Mobilitätswandel bereit wäre, wenn die Voraussetzungen stimmen würden.

Gute Rede des Bundesjustizministers zur #Chatkontrolle.
Einzelheiten zur Position der Bundesregierung zu dem Verordnungsentwurf, in dem Verschiedenes vorgesehen ist (, sind aber noch unklar. Da müssen wir dran bleiben.


Wer tatsächlich Advokatur übernimmt für eine #Chatkontrolle vergreift sich an der Privatsphäre von Millionen von Menschen. Chatkontrollen haben im Rechtsstaat nichts verloren!

Im in need of some spare cash so im gonna open up 3-5 slots for simple pet portrait for 100€ each. Would anyone be interested? (As in you *are* able to pay for this)

If enough ppl are interested ill make a more detailed post w more info etc. Here are some examples:

I work at a ccTLD (.IS), and lately we are seeing a *lot* of new accounts immediately registering multiple domains that all had been registered in the past. I suspect we're not the only ccTLD that sees this.

We know of at least two instances of this being used to take over social media accounts that had e-mails in expired domains set as backup e-mail addresses.

This seems to be organized and well-resourced.

Please double-check you don't use e-mails in any expired domains anywhere.
