Wtf, people here are demonstrating for Germany to leave NATO and support Putin. In case you didn't notice, Putin is literally killing people. Why the fuck should we leave the single one treaty that protects us from being killed as well. Let alone support murder.

:boost_ok: :ablobcatwave: Please boost this post if you would like the EFF to join the fediverse. :ablobcatbongo:

In a survey the EFF sent me, I suggested they create an account on the fediverse, so they can reach more supporters and support innovative free software that promotes interoperability among platforms, something they've advocated for in the past, too.

If you can boost this post, maybe I'll be able to show them that there are quite a few users who would like them here!

The EFF is the infamous nonprofit organisation that fights for privacy, government transparency, and digital freedom. Their fight is very important, and the EFF is very special to me.

You can see some of their work here

In the meantime, you can follow @eff, which is an unofficial mirror of their Twitter.

Especially as I already have a whetstone for my knifes. So I would probably only need a leather strap for polishing (besides the razor itself).

Thinking on buying a straight razor. Has much more style and produces a lot less waste.

Pro tip, make sure STP is turned on before bringing up a second interface that connects to the same switch :D

Apple will install a back door to Messages and will scan your photos on-device against an inscrutable and unauditable database. Extremely bad news. Others will follow (or are silently doing it already) and there is still no good alternative to Apple/Google’s ecosystems.
