Linus is up to his old rants again, and I think for a pretty good reason. In general, devs just don't tie a feature to a feature for the hell of it, or because it sounds like a good idea. You can read more about it here: phoronix.com/scan.php?page=new

Been waiting for Fedora/RedHat to pull their head out of the 4th point of contact for years, when it comes to packages/modules.. I think they have finally done it. communityblog.fedoraproject.or

Should software be free? Developers need to fulfill the basic necessities of life to survive, don't they. So if software was free, how would a developer live?

Telemetry!?!? Tracking everything a user does, to improve the product/application, at the cost or expense of the user's privacy. We as users must take responsibility, and take back our privacy, one application/device at a time. Stop letting Corpocrats profit from our daily lives. Let them know you value yourself and privacy. ๐Ÿค”

It is interesting that Easter Sunday and April Fools, occur on the same day. Does this mean that Religion is a Joke? ๐Ÿค”

@avnsgt I did not previously have another account, but my posts are also on the decentralized network

Do you have a friend or family member, who relies on the CCleaner for Windows? Apparently it has a backdoor built in that was designed to allow an attacker to deploy a keylogger. See here: threatpost.com/ccleaner-attack

So, Intel and AMD certainly had their share of flaws, but I guess I was a little bit surprised when the Ryzen chips were found to have similar vulnerabilities, coming fresh of the manufacturing line. However, AMD is scheduled to release patches in a few short weeks, which will address some or all of this. threatpost.com/amd-acknowledge

And, this is why I delete my Facebook account several years ago... threatpost.com/experts-call-fa Social media breaching the trust of its users.

Therefore, it might just be possible to recover the lost data, and merge it with the new accounts being created here.

So, I can see my user still exists within the decentralized federation after Mastodon.rocks had the data loss. I think this is possible, because I had an account on another server which served a purpose to follow my main account.

@TheAdmin I'll take my old toots if you can do it.

Thanks!

Don't worry. Shit crashes. I used to run a BBS, and we'll... Shit happens, this is a labor of love, for you. I hope. LOL.

Seems that Mastodon.rocks has stablized. Don't lose faith in our awesome #mastodon instance, and chalk this up to lessons learned about decentralized social media networking. ๐Ÿ˜‰

If you haven't paid attention to threatpost.com lately, my good friend @fatboy pointed out one hell of a issue has to deal with. See here: threatpost.com/telegram-ordere
