Hmmmm @UberGeek I'm noticing a funny pattern where whitespaces are discarded across platforms. A post from Friendica has BBCode markup and where it's stripped off in Mastodon, the whitespace is gone. Do I tell Friendica or Mastodon about that?

Is their nobody on BuffaloMesh that cares about a ? I love the challenge of the whole thing. I thought somebody might talk about it here.

American Football is getting started, so...

is too. Anybody on or any user on earth wants to try it, I'm a Commissioner.

I've run leagues in the past and I set the points so that it's hard for a skilled person with advanced game knowledge to have an advantage, and beginners have a real chance at winning. In the past, I did leagues with buy-in and free to enter. Both are equally fun.

I'm really surprised that there apparently isn't a "not made with prison labor" symbol for products, verified by a third-party group similar to the Non-GMO Project or the Vegan Society

When Americans buy products that say "Made in the USA" they expect the money to go into supporting local, well-paying jobs, not fueling private prisons who utilize slave labor. This is the desire regardless of political alignment. People need the ability to make an informed decision

@purism@joindiaspora.com your things are amazing. I got there because as luck would have it, at the end of the youtube.com/watch?v=y0-j4Q77KX Matrix/Riot demo he didn't run out of time and mentioned puri.sm/ phones. I wonder if anybody here on social.buffalomesh knew about these things yet.

This is #Security #News to me! The site:
haveibeenpwned.com/
lets you type in an email address and it tells you the places that your data has been breached on. I don't recall Disqus ever telling me that I got hacked.

I just discovered it because a NextCloud forum post I didn't read till today was talking about how it will auto test to see if your ID got hacked for preemptive warnings.

Although, it gives me pause to give a password to a site that may record the hash.

@UberGeek my DHCP got changed recently. I can't seem to get my Mastodon back on but everything else is working. Could any of the config files hard coded the old IP address? I don't know where to look.

I've an itch to run my league again. Anybody in metro area have interest?

Over years, I tweaked my league w/co-workers until skills didn't help a to win. I built trophies and so on. I tapered prizes so that every "team manager" had half chance of winning buy-in back or more, the other half lost their whole buy-in.

I haven't been at that previous job in about 5 years. I tried to do it with a different set of friends last year but found out they are all computer phobic.

@UberGeek How did you get your contact info on the social.buffalomesh.net/about/m page. My instance has it messed up for some reason.

Probably nobody needs another distraction in their lives, but I see why the hashtag is catching fire. I'm just a couple paragraphs into the users manual and I get it.

end to end encryption on each message! Robust network of collaboration which resists authoritarian network shutdown.

Hello! I really like my feed: I learn lots of new things about #infosec, #crypto, #coops and #opensource.

However I'm missing some things--can you help me find them?

I want to talk more about people, working with them, their limitations and potential. I want to talk about #governance, #facilitation, #voting, #cognitivebiases and other concrete things that can be tried (and falsified) in #groups.

Let me know if you're interested, or boost if you think you have followers who are interested.

😀

Russian Court Bans Telegram App for refusing to hand over encryption keys.

Commendable they refuse to hand over keys but now no more Telegram in Russia... The issue with #centralization made clear again. Better #federate with #matrix #XMPP

Gaaaaa!!! Why didn't I pay attention to the regular expression lessons when I had the chance!

I don't understand how to filter a Federated timeline panel on the web interface.

Here is one of the danger of Javascript;

Malicious Code Injection

One of the most insidious uses of JavaScript occurs in the form of cross-site scripting (XSS). Simply put, XSS is a vulnerability that allows hackers to embed malicious JavaScript code into an otherwise legitimate website, which is ultimately executed in the browser of a user who visits the site.

One way to defend yourself against this type of attack is to use NoScript add-on.

About to fall asleep here but before I forget again, anybody here on BuffaloMesh know about the Inve[n|s]t thing at UB?

Might be worth the time to see if Mesh could get support from that new group.
