Juhu, das weiße Zeug ist zurück! Heute war Higgs mit Hanni und Iva (Emils Mama) im Schnee unterwegs. Rehe gesehen (und nicht erwischt), nach dem grünen Ding gerannt und im Schnee gewälzt - was braucht Hund mehr?

is doing my head in at the moment. Got a new 4096 bit key-pair set up and realized I might want seperated (A)uthenticate, (S)ign and (E)ncrypt sub-keys.
Read a bunch of information about what and how to do that... not too sure any longer if it's worth the hassle?

Would you keep a very very private key-pair on an external medium and just certify another key-pair that you use for signing, de-/encrypting and auth - with a limited lifetime?


The European Court of Justice has determined hat the owner of an internet access is liable for any copyright infringement (share/upload/download) committed by anyone using that access.

Things don't bode well in . I wonder if -hosting is worth it anymore and whether participating in networks will not put you in danger of being pursued by the @copyright protection wing?


It will soon be needed to retire my aging server - it is still an Intel Core2Duo doing hell of alot of workloads.
I am really looking at Ryzen 7 1700 which will need a AM4 mainboard. And here comes : what chipset and make would be a good for 24/7 use?

I'm struggling to get one of my friends on Mastodon. :-)
He used to try my instance for some time, didn't like it because he couldn't connect with people of similar - I admit it's hardly easy for me on here either, but that should be since I'm connecting from a private pod.
Is there some way to get a "network ping" of sorts done for topics? In other words, how to connect easier with people that love for instance?


Great post on #federated social networks for people who don't understand the difference to centralised networks like #Facebook and #Twitter. -

worked stunningly beautiful on my test machine, but it's just not going to happen on my aging i386 for a while still.
Then I rediscovered container virtualisation and my first test of a small instance has gone up successfully! :-D
Now I just need to figure out the reverse proxy deal from the host side and whether federation would be feasible without heavy iptables NATing.

First #Socialhome to #ActivityPub side contact made 🎉

Follow etc not done yet, but working on that next!

Deactivated the bird account and deleted the app. Good fucking riddance
