»Da sich auch kaum herausfinden lasse, welche System tatsächlich infiziert wurden, bleibe letztlich nur, "die gesamte Windows Domäne neu aufzusetzen". Dabei könne das Kammergericht die aktuelle Situation nutzen, "ein leistungsfähiges und sicheres neues Netzwerk zu konstruieren und den Schaden bei zukünftigen Vorfällen stark zu begrenzen" schließt der Bericht mit einem optimistischen Blick in die Zukunft.«

Remember when technology people made Standards instead of Platforms

Email. IRC. SMS. HTML and shit. The fucking internet itself

Those things would never ever be made today. Instead they'd be shitty proprietary apps that probably only work on shitty proprietary hardware and can't be used by anyone without permission from the company that patented them

That's still kinda happening today? With stuff like dat and SSB and ActivityPub. But all of that is super super niche and technical and not at all accessible to the average user (with the exception of AP as of pretty recently). And it just sucks man, web 2.0 is bullshit

My qutebrowser PR got merged finally \o/

If you're using in combination with you can now access passwords in mounted sub-stores

@mkhl @bascht @moonglum Offering an alternative: github.com/dxwc/vidlist

Obviously not as portable as Invidious, but it’s sufficient for my needs

@moonglum @bascht periodic reminder that the author of Invidious is a tech-bro with little to no ethical conscience who would allow for the Gab crowd to spew their hatred and mongering without limit using his software: github.com/omarroth/invidious/

It’s highly questionable and downright shameful how the tech community is vilifying YouTube but is more than happy to use Invidious instead despite that very issue.. 🤷‍♂️

there's a reason why they applaud and then do nothing. Because capitalism can adsorb and commodify environmentalism. It's been doing it for decades now. What it can't stop doing is converting earth's resources into junk.

just a reminder to please please PLEASE use an image description whenever you can, even if it's literally as short as "a pic of me" or "me" or "cat" it makes the website more accessible to everyone and is a feature that's very easy to use! there's even an automatic caption generator in the image description field (it's in the "edit" secton if you click "detect text from picture")

After a lively discussion with @moonglum I got rid of my YouTube subscription in favour of invidio.us and proper RSS feeds. I've been test driving a few of my subscriptions and so far I couldn't be happier. No more endless recommendation rabbit holes. And offline support via Plex / youtube-dl. \o/

Da die Mehrwertsteuer auf Hygieneartikel für Menstruierende abgesenkt wurde, erhöhen die Hersteller jetzt einfach ihre Preise. Kann nicht sagen, dass mich das überrascht. tagesspiegel.de/wirtschaft/nac
