I'm amazed, the more I get into the GDPR, the more amazed I am about it. This is a great law which really has some great thoughts that were put into it.

Given that it's implemented as it's designed, this really brings privacy and security into the focus of every aspect of a companies workflow.

While it doesn't mean, that it'll make companies privacy focused, it forces them to think about it and take it into consideration when selecting partners, products and services. 馃憤馃徎

I guess when it comes to the Fediverse it would be a good idea to reassemble the separation of powers that we know from states. Having some people starting to make the rules and maybe taking care of the hardware while having other people that enforce the rules and a 3rd group of people who are there to figure out problem that came up between rule executors and users.

Main problem: You need at least 3 people to get those things started and they shouldn't be the best friends in first place.

I have to correct myself, the product is called Cloudflare WARP not wrap. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter, but just for you to know ;)

By the way, the Riot 1.1.0 flatpak is on its way 馃帀

Just wait for the repository metadata to be updates and things will arrive on your workstation :)

Just a thought on Cloudflare WRAP (their VPN offer):

You definitely put yourself in big danger by using it. Cloudflare has an own CA that is able to issue certificates for ANY website. Means when they want to MITM you while using WRAP you won't even see a certificate warning.

(There are some ways to mitigate that like public key pinning, but the majority of HTTPS pages won't)

So probably use something else.

By the way, if you run your domains on Namecheap, check 2FA and use a U2F token like a Yubikey if you can. Otherwise if you don't have an U2F capable device, use TOTP. But no matter what, enable 2FA for your own and other peoples' safety.

For those who wonder why they were not open source right now: I was in a hurry when switching from to my own GitLab and that made some details less important, now I update the projects by including CI, add an image, a nice description, sometimes fix naming and repository path, etc. In order to have a nice impression on it :)

So not much overly new, but maybe still worth a look :)

By the way, if you wonder what I do when I'm not working for companies or on CodiMD or consulting in infrastructure projects: I work on free software and since I had to switch away from to my own GitLab I decided to slowly open source them again.

Current status: Half of the projects are open source again, feel free to check them out:

If you want to support speech systems with your voice sample, please don't give it to Google. Give it to an open alternative instead:

Looks like Tilix is searching for a new maintainer in a long term perspective:

I use this terminal editor every day and I consider it as doing exactly what I want it to do, but it would be great to see new development going on!

I don't want to know how many browsers do not verify #XPI signatures anymore... Like zombies, walking around

If you disabled xpinstall.signatures.required make sure you reenable it now! :firefox: :doomguy:

And pass this reminder on to your peers and channels

Today, I write more unit tests鈥

Words can change things but not without the infrastructure to ensure that we can communicate those words without hierarchical gatekeepers. I must keep telling myself that the time for code is now so that our words may have real power tomorrow.

Yes, @mozilla makes mistakes (same as the rest of us humans). And yes, their last one was ugly. But, still, they're the only ones in the browser business trying to do the right thing. So I'll keep using Firefox, Focus, Send, and the rest of cool software they produce.
