My wife is taking a course in "Information Security"

They require you to run flash in order to access to course.

@selea Gargron asked us about our implementation, so maybe they will! 🀞

Suspended the instance neckbeard.xyz, because it is a malicious instance.

TL;DR - useless and stupid HTTP-headers and takes up a shitton of bandwith in the end CPU-cycles that can be used for something useful instead

Our CEO just referred to SaaS as "Software as a hostage" and I think that's pretty spot on.

I have recently started to use windows at work again, and HOLY FUCK
So much telemetry and so much crap is sent to my company in order to spy on "my productivity"

That's irony at its best: Google is one of the gold sponsors of #FOSDEM, and less than a week before the conference begins, it removes #Element from the Play Store. Element is the most-used application for access to the #Matrix infrastructure that FOSDEM depends on.

1. It is a GIANT man in the middle - MITM.
2. Their DDOS protection is not that good.

Welcome to the fediverse.

Good luck with your quest.
I say this, not in jest.
Free Software is the best.
Because it is, to us, a bequest.

Have fun.
Be creative.
Be safe.

Some people claim that instance-blocking weakens the fediverse, and undermines the point of federation.

This is the opposite of the truth.

The point of federation is that it limits the accumulation of power: no single instance can control fedi, because users can always switch instances without leaving fedi.

This is why fedi and fascism are fundamentally opposed -- and why the ability to block fascist/abusive instances is the very heart of federation's power to serve its users.
