If you use a VPN for privacy reasons, it might be good to take a look at this:

PSA: Active Exploits against CVE-2021-41773 (Apache Web Server Exploit) - what we're seeing and what they are doing..

Get off Facebook. Get off every Facebook service. Block Facebook. Don't work for Facebook. Don't provide services to Facebook. Find every way you can to get them out of your life and support others in doing the same.

They are ethically indefensible.


@kmj anything is better than Facebook. Signal is an easy replacement, but agree with you.

Daniel Cid boosted

doing ad for another central service if one central service goes down is probably the wrong way. #matrix is decentralized and open source. IMHO the better way to go.

Facebook's DNS is back:

$ dig +short facebook[.]com

$ dig +short www.facebook[.]com

Was good while it lasted.

Don't forget #Matrix. That has the advantage of not having one central infrastructure, and we've seen what happens if that goes down...

If you are still waiting for Whatsapp to come back online, maybe now is a good time to try Signal?

Signal is a drop-in WhatsApp replacement. Fast, secure, open source & private.

Try it out.

Dear #FaceBook engineers, please take your time, no rush, and well, maybe it's a good time to feel ill and take a day off.

@tony It is like that time you had to spell PHP or HTML.

So @dcid and I are having a debate at the moment.. a very heated one..


We pushed out the documentation for API's recently and on the page I wrote: "Application Programming Interface (API)"

This led to a multi-day debate and argument on who spells out API... thoughts? It's ok to tell Daniel he is wrong, he is strong..

Web 1.0: Decentralized. Every company hosted their own email servers, sites, DNS, etc.

Web 2.0: Centralized. Controlled by Google, Facebook, Amazon, Slack, CloudFlare and others.

Web 3.0: Decentralized again? I doubt the web2.0 owners will allow it without a fight.

I wonder how many hours are wasted by bad timed traffic lights.
