Bloody hell, @mike is going in for round 2 of #100DaysToOffload - I failed miserably last year due to some personal stuff going on, so I’ve been thinking about having another crack at it for 2021 too.

I'm just thinking about this blog post I wrote in 2018. Because even when Twitter makes a good decision, the first sentence comes to mind: Why does the entire world have to wait on the CEO of one US company to make a decision?

Personally I think ‘free speech’ is far less important than respect. If your on the #Fediverse and not on your own server be sure you read and agree with the instance guidelines you are on.

Remember, you are in someone’s digital home, respect the rules or get out and signup somewhere that’s more fitting..

Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.

I am here because I love Gnu/Linux and its philosophy. I am using it since I have installed it on my first computer in 1998. I used to buy computer magazines and they used to have program CDs or Floppies. One day I saw a program called Slackware Linux and it changed my life. #introductions

Since I deleted my Instagram, I still reflexively tap on the location of where it's app-icon used to be. That indicates just how addictive these apps are.

Another Linux app I use pretty much every time I deal with images is ImCompressor.

Pretty, easy to use, works very fast and reduces the image size by a lot! I just compressed all these images with it. It took 5 seconds in total.

And remember kids, if anyone tells you to implement DRM, tracking software, anti-patterns, gambling apps disguised as social media, and so on - you tell them to "FUCK OFF". If you get fired over it (and you might not, for the record), give me a call and we'll help you find somewhere better.

The writing was on the wall. Chris Krebs, director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) fired by tweet for speaking truth, leaving a hole in homeland security.
