Daten abzugreifen ist also "ein Angriff auf unsere Demokratie".

Es sei denn, das passiert durch Konzerne. Dann sind die Daten das Öl des 21. Jahrhunderts. Oder es geschieht durch staatliche Stellen. Denn dann ist es der Kampf gegen den Terror und gegen die Kriminalität.

Und es begab sich, das die Kinder wie jedes Jahr heimkehrten an die Stätte ihrer Geburt, um die IT ihrer Familien zu fixen 😎 🎄 🎅

Important New Year reminder: Don't forget to audit your backups.
- check that you can do restores
- check that filesystems you expect to be backed up are being backed up
- check that filesystems you don't want backed up aren't being backed up.
- check backup frequency matches what you expect.

Fun fact: Microsoft is now making a web browser with Google tech, in turn based in Apple tech, in turn based in KDE tech


Consumers: “I love Netflix because I pay $15/month and get all this stuff!”
Content Owners: “Users are willing to pay $15/month for a streaming service. Let’s make one of our own!”


Falls mal wieder jemand das Unblock Formular von Microsoft sucht weil der eigene (Mail)server blockiert wird:

Hetzner hat das netterweise mal dokumentiert.


When designing a user interface, imagine some old woman using it, say Margaret Hamilton, and she's clicking your app's buttons and saying to you, as old people do,

"Young whippersnapper, when I was your age, I sent 24 people to the ACTUAL MOON with my software in 4K of RAM and here I am clicking your button and it takes ten seconds to load a 50 megabyte video ad and then it crashes

I'm not even ANGRY with you, I'm just disappointed."

Und aus gegebenem Anlass bitte, bitte nutzt keine Mail Dienste aus dem Hause Microsoft. Das hat weniger was mit MS zu tun als das sie einfach unfähig sind ordentlich mit Spam umzugehen.

Es ist eine ganz schlechte Idee wegen einem Server der Spam verschickt immer die übrigen bis zu ca. 252 anderen Server im gleichen Segment auch zu blockieren und dann ein Unblocking nur über ein schlechtest und fast nicht auffindbares Formular zuzulassen.

so on the eve of the #tumblr shutdown, Tumblr IP-blocked the Internet Archive.

Just to be EXTRA dicks.

I say this as a cis dude. Using another person's proper pronouns costs us _nothing_. It's just common courtesy.

Refusing to do so just makes you an asshole. The math isn't complicated on this one.
