I was amazed by the Netflix Don't Look Up. It perfectly depicts my own deprivations from current society.

Our friends from Spain visited us in . Any ideas what other restaurants should we show them in city center?

I broke my Mastodon instance by mistake yesterday. I had to deploy a month old data backup. Is it working now? Is still federating? And what about subscriptions? Does anybody see this post?

Advent is here.🎄
The time I enable my christmas home automation. It switches light chains on at sunset and off at sunrise.

And by the way - to make the censorship for ISPs even harder, they publish these lists on the webiste of Ministry of Finance in PDF. Good luck with automating this… 👏

And the concern was right. In January Ministry of Finance will start publishing a second list of blocked websites with ilegal medicine. I am pretty sure that more lists are comming in near future.

Second concern was: Where will this end? Listed sites are blocked just by decision of Ministry of Finance, no court order needed. And when you start blocking ilegal gambling, what about other ilegal stuff? Suddenly you have many lists ISPs have to block.

Later on they specified to block DNS records only. Well, fine. That's the easy to overcome way (just find a DNS resolver other than your ISP's).

First concern was: How? The law itself doesn't specify how should they do it. All ways of blocking are wrong: Either they are too expensive for ISPs or imposible in todays world with tls as standard or too easy to overcome and useless.

In 2016 a law in Czechia was introduced. ISPs have to block ilegal gambling websites (meaning sites not paying taxes here) listed by Ministry of Finance.

Do you know this game? It's a long time I played it last time and I am glad it's still in active development...

Just discovered interesting index of ActivityPub instances. My Mastodon and PeerTube are listed there. There is also list of active relay servers.

Fernanda Melchor: Období hurikánů. Vydaly a skvěle přeložila Anežka Charvátová. Já jsem její překlad redigovala a trochu se o něm rozepsala. :)

Kde/Plasma has all this, but is buggy (it took me 5 min to crash it) and with all it's configurability I couldn't set it to behave as I want. One example: locking the session does not turn off monitors. Gnome does these things out of box.
