Really interesting video showing the “other side”. What goes through the police mind when you have to make a decision in a matter or seconds - life and death decisions some times.
We live in a town with just 2 builders.
You can only buy a house from one of them (Builder G and Builder A).
If you buy a house from Builder A, you won't be able to install any appliances or make any changes unless approved by A.
To get into A's approved list of products/applianced, you need to pay them a 30% commission...
This would never be accepted in the real world, but we go for it on the App stores.
Not the perfect analogy, but explains what happens with Apple and Google.

Apple at it again:
Apple Threatens to Remove Email App 'Hey' From App Store Over Lack of In-App Subscription Option:
Twitter, Facebook , Google and Apple are too big and too centralized to be allowed to continue.

Great Youtube video by Kylinux Cast.

I’m a web developer, currently using Rust and Elixir. My distro of choice is NixOS, though I used Debian for a long time before.
In addition to FOSS, I like video games, music, and reading sci-fi/fantasy books.
Put some thoughts to virtual parchment on the idea of decentralizing social platforms.
If anyone has more experience with it, curious on the performance/memory impact that it may cause.
So far, didn't notice anything.
Iptables hashlimit saves the day again.
What a useful little module.
You can rate limit --syn packets for a netmask (using /16 on this example) by using:
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 443 --syn -m hashlimit --hashlimit-above 50/sec --hashlimit-burst 100 --hashlimit-mode srcip --hashlimit-srcmask 16 --hashlimit-name "tcpmax" --hashlimit-htable-size 8192 --hashlimit-htable-max 32768 -j DROP
Specially if a few /16's were causing problems and you don't want go block them altogether.
Anyone from Digital Ocean around here?
