Ich hab inzwischen fast alle Tricks ausprobiert:

- Maske möglichst hoch und Brille über der Maske
- Oberen Teil der Maske umklappen
- Taschentuch einlegen
- Maske möglichst eng tragen

Die Brille beschlägt trotzdem. So eng kann die Maske gar nicht anliegen, dass die Luft nicht trotzdem nach oben entweicht.

Weiß noch jemand etwas, außer teure Spezialprodukte (wie Anti-Beschlag-Spray oder Spezialmasken)?

Decades of complacency in monopoly has reduced the Web to five giant sites filled with screenshots of the other four (h/t @tveastman). Read our analysis of the EU's (leaked) plan to do something about it

I wonder whether there is something "hacker cells" that are small groups of people with differing experience levels that commit to help each other on projects and developing skills.

As a professional software developer I really enjoy working in a small team.
Having developers with different backgrounds that have a interest in supporting and training each other makes everyone benefit from each other.
Developing in my spare time, I often do not experience the same thing. There is great and helpful communities out there, but it feels more anonymous and I would be hesitant to ask for code reviews, or someone to explain something to me in a call.

Ich bin nicht sicher, ob die momentane Kritik an #GitHub nicht zu kurz greift. Ja, Zentralisierung ist problematisch. Allerdings machen Plattformen wie GitHub viele kleine Projekte erst möglich weil sie Infrastruktur bereitstellen und das Projekt überhaupt erst auffindbar machen.
Kleinere Hoster würden bei einer Sperrverfügung noch viel eher einknicken weil sie sonst selbst haftbar würden. Wichtiger sind Mirror und Codesigning, damit man weiß welche der Kopien vertrauenswürdig sind.

#Microsoft #Edge für #Linux ist da. Habe ja hier und da von Leuten gehört, die diesen Browser tatsächlich verwenden wollen, da er datenschutzmäßig ja besser sei als Chrome oder sogar Brave.

Ich hab mir mal angesehen, was Edge rausfunkt, ohne einen einzigen Klick gemacht, geschweige denn den Datenschutzbestimmungen zugestimmt zu haben - er wurde lediglich gestartet (Spoiler: 20 HTTP(S) Requests und 29 DNS A Queries). #Datenschutz #Privacy

Six Reasons You Should Delete WhatsApp

It’s time to choose a more trustworthy messenger service.…


WhatsApp really, really wants to access all of your #contacts, and not just those who use the platform. According to their terms of service, users “provide the phone numbers of #WhatsApp users and your other contacts in your #mobile phone #address book on a regular basis. You confirm you are authorised to provide us such numbers to allow us to provide our services.”

Technically, you can refuse access, but WhatsApp will reprimand you by not showing any of the names of your message threads – pretty annoying for a #messenger platform – and will prevent you from making calls or starting group #messages or broadcasts.

If you do allow it access, WhatsApp will be able to read the information of everyone from your gynaecologist to your dealer. There’s ongoing debate as to whether or not this is even #legal under The #EU’s General Data Protection Regulation #GDPR, which forbids the sharing of personal #data without consent. Say you know someone who doesn’t use WhatsApp, but is saved as a contact in your phone. Their #phone number is shared with WhatsApp, without their #consent.

Is there anyone who would want to contribute to a StackExchange community, where Dutch learners and speakers are asking and answering questions around the language?

Feel free to retoot :)

We pay to Steam, Netflix, Amazon prime, Spotify. But not to Wikipedia,, Librivox, Project Gutenberg, for our favourite Linux distro.

The huge asymmetry between corporate and community has not emerged naturally. It is a product of our choices of not supporting community oriented projects.

The short conveniences vs the long-term good. We always chose the former.

In face of surveillance capitalism, we must and must change.

Hello everydual, I'm currently a 4th year student. My interests are mathematical/computational neuroscience and philosophy (thinking of pursuing a PhD/MSc on mathematical modelling). This instance looks fairly interesting. I look forward to meeting cool smart people. Other notable topics of interest: GNU/Linux (Ubuntu/Kali/Mint), FOSS/H, Python, Rust, LatAm history/politics. #introductions

Random fact: this is my favorite picture

I am shocked to find out that the Java Language Specification never has officially been translated to Latin

Thinking about it, there is no sane reason to believe that we exist.
