Od kilku miesięcy próbuję założyć konto w inPZU. Ich formularz online wymagający pokazania do kamerki dowodu osobistego oraz nagrania filmu jak patrzę się na poruszającą się na ekranie kropkę za każdym razem mnie odrzuca i nie pozwala założyć konta.

Poszedłem do placówki fizycznej. Dowiedziałem się, że możliwość założenia konta jest TYLKO online.

@arek Mi to nawet w qemu nie działa. Po pierwsze, musiałem wyłączyć GL. Splashscreen i terminal się pokazuje, ale środowisko graficzne (phosh, a potem testowo zainstalowałem plasma-mobile) już nie. Chyba coś jest z Waylandem, tylko jak to zdiagnozować? Mi zawsze środowisko uruchamiał menedżer wyświetlania, więc może po prostu nie wiem jak je poprawnie odpalić.

Love stickers and using Matrix?
Maybe like me you really like Telegram stickers, but now you have all your chats bridged in one app?

I programmed a simple bot that lets you import Telegram stickers directly into any Matrix room. It's alpha and not ready for public hosting, but you can host it for yourself or for people you know.

@gemlog An extreme but real example of data collected being used against people later: in the Netherlands, each town has a registry of all its residents and a bit of relevant data about them. Back in the 1930's, that included religion. The Nazis used those books to round up 99% of all Jewish people in the country

When people say they have nothing to hide, let's reply:

* Post your passwords here
* Write down everybody you hate
* Tell the world who you voted for
* List all the videos you watched

- Medical history.
- Sensitive conversations with employers, children, spouses.
- Billing and banking information.
- Purchase information.
- Web search history.
And more...

I need privacy. Not because my actions are questionable, but because 'your' judgement and intentions are.

And it doesn't matter whether or not my communications are weighty or frivolous in nature - they are mine and only for those whom I've chosen to share them with. Not the government's, nor goog's, nor my ISP's, but mine.

Also, what is legal where I live today, may not be legal tomorrow and my discussion of it may incriminate my future self. It has happened in the past many times to others in other places.

@arek Próbowałem uruchomić PostmarketOS na swoim telefonie (Moto g7 Power) i coś nie "pykło", bo na ekranie nic się nie wyświetla. Nie pokazuje się również splashscreen jak na waszych filmikach. SSH działa.

the three hard problems of computer science are
-word processing
-making a website that's just a website
-moving files between phone and computer

@kuba Miesiąc temu (16 sierpnia) administrator strony teoria.pl odpowiedział na moje zgłoszenie: "Szanowny Panie, dziękujemy za wiadomość. Zbadamy zgłoszone przez Pana uwagi". Od tej pory nic się nie działo. Czy mam wysłać ponaglenie? Jeżeli tak - jak je napisać?

Here's the greatest lie on the Internet. If you see this message, there's a 100% of confidence all your data, everything between the website and you, including your passwords and credit card details is being intercepted by Cloudflare.

Non-free software is also a danger for your privacy. Non-free software can secretely snoop on you, and send your data to company's server. I personally does not accept that.
The list of harm non-free software do is very long. See this: gnu.org/proprietary

From the technical point of view, the GNU operating system is generally faster, more secure, private, and gives you more control over the computer. Before you next time install Windows, try GNU. And be prepared to deal with another logic, for example the way of installing software.
gnu.org/distros/free-distros

IMPORTANT

I want to have a separate GNU installation on the second drive. Please, respect that and keep it untouched, I need it for my work.

-----END MESSAGE-----

That was a message I had left on a desktop in a file called "READ ME PLZ"

  • What's wrong with Windows & other non-free software?

If the developer rejects to share the source code or denies one of the 4 essential freedoms, they take away your freedom. If you don't have the source code, you can't know what the program really does, you only see the results of executed code. Such software is less secure, because there's less people who know how the program works and can see potential bugs and security problems. With Free Software, everybody is allowed to study the source code and propose changes.
Moreover, sometimes (it's actually very often nowadays) the developer do their efforts to restrict user in some way. Windows also do that, for example you are forced to upgrade "your" system sooner or later.
