lmfao, a Cellebrite kit fell off the back of a truck and Signal found a bunch of vulnerabilities: https://signal.org/blog/cellebrite-vulnerabilities/

> In completely unrelated news, upcoming versions of Signal will be periodically fetching files to place in app storage. These files are never used for anything inside Signal and never interact with Signal software or data, but they look nice, and aesthetics are important in software.

I can’t believe I’m having to write this code in a fucking web server. What a mockery of the web, human rights, and the GDPR.

Fuck you, Google!

Just to reiterate in relation to Gab getting hacked, I’m not aware of any vulnerabilities in Mastodon at the moment and based on what I have seen in their code modifications the vulnerabilities they have are the ones they themselves introduced (along with never porting security patches from us)

Did you mind paying postage for the love letter to your sweetheart? 💌 Or would you have preferred a free postal service that invades your privacy to sell targeted ads? 🤔 Why would you feel any different about chat services? #PrivacyIsWorthPayingFor

#2424 Normal Conversation 

"I think I'll pass. These days I have a hard time feeling comfortable in crowded bars with loud music and lots of shouting." --me, after the pandemic, but now for a second reason

Just logged in again to the birdsite after probably two years or so. It has gotten even worse than I remember it. Now running tweetdelete.net on there 😅

@Tutanota
Its a balance of risk ... The probably don't have a picture of me yet if I give them one, then they will have it. So then I become one of those "you have something to hide", will end up in another database and it becomes an endless game ...
