I was quite shocked when I recently logged into Discord and it asked me to enter my school email to get connected with different Discord pages tied to the college that I'm attending. How would Discord know I'm in currently enrolled in college, what type of information are they collecting to know that information?

Just want to say to everyone sorry that their has not been a blog post in a while, we've been busy with school and tossing around the idea of transitioning from write.as to ghost.org as well as making our blog posts audio focused. Thoughts and opinions on this? .me

My college courses require that I use a Windows/MacOS only program known as the LockDown Browser by Respondus, to be able to take my very important quizzes. Considering this program doesn't run on Linux and attempting to use it in a VM will only cause the program to think you're cheating makes it a chore to go through school using FOSS software. I just find it frustrating feeling like a second class citizen.
