Open source is a licensing scheme, free software and ethical technology are software ideologies. As far as I understand it, the first aligns with the goal of surveillance capitalism, the second may be used for it, and the third openly conflicts with it.
Whoops, completely missed that the mastodon streaming died some time before the 2.6.3 upgrade (and no, I'm not running it under a supervisor).

Daaamn... I would really like to have a recent Firefox on the old OpenPandora... But getting there would mean I'd have to set up a cross-build environment based off the old OpenEmbedded stuff that makes the Pandora SuperZaxxon release, get a new compiler, find out which system libraries I'd need to build in more recent versions, learn how to do a FF cross-build, and then package it all up as a PND.
Yeah, I'll not even get started on that...
Duh. Why the hell did I never use "sysmerge -p" up to now, and instead went to find out which configuration details had changed in installed ports on my own (only when things failed to start after an upgrade, usually)?
Also it seems it's about time for my periodic "the #mastodon web UI edit field is a broken piece of crap" post... I'm on my old Thinkpad with an 2.5GHz Core2 Duo CPU, and typing text into the edit field lags by over a second.
I'm not quite sure what it supposedly is processing there, I mean it's just plain text and the occansional emoji.
A blast from the past: Received a copy of the current wave of porn extortion spam mails, to an email address I used exactly once, in 2005, to register Softick BlueFiles (a Bluetooth file transfer software for PalmOS) through the then-popular RegNow registration service.
Mildly wonder who of those lost the address to the spam pool during the years since then...
Leute regen sich (auf den blauen Vogel) auf das der CCC und der #35C3 Antifaschistisch sind und wollen deshalb nicht auf den Congress. Meine Antwort dazu, gut so, auf Faschisten und "Neutrale" haben wir echt keinen Bock, bleibt weg.
After fighting with guest network setup on a Fritz!Repeater for half an hour, it turns out that it's really hard to push the WPS button on a Fritz!Box for six seconds when buttons are disabled somewhere in the security settings... The WPS button in the web UI just enables standard WPS mode instead of the proprietary mesh mode, so the repeater was never actually booked in as a mesh client, and couldn't learn the guest network configuration...
