Please allow me to re-share my rough sketch of some advanced carbon capture technology
In a final step, the user took #SailfishOS X, same as before, and changed just a few lines in /etc/connman/main.conf
(removed all the FallbackTimeservers, Ipv4StatusUrl and Ipv6StatusUrl configuration)…
...and it does not connect *anywhere*.
Completely empty list of external connections.
Thing of #beauty.
- #UbuntuTouch – connections every several minutes to a few Canonical and ubports servers – probably tuneable, but behaving like this out of the box.
- #SailfishOS X – connects to some NTP servers, to ip4.jolla.com (detection of WIFI capture portals) and some AWS server, exchanges a few bytes and stops; repeats the same process after ~12 hours (probably network clock synchronization).
This is even less than #GrapheneOS‘ default connections.
Interesting thread in the #SailfishOS forum where a user set up the following experiment:
They flashed an Xperia X phone with different OSes, left them idle without running any apps and then saw how often and where the OS is connecting to by default (tcpdumps).
- #Android 8.1 from vendor – an expected catastrophe: within one minute, it „connected everywhere“.
So the European Parliament decides to adopt privatized Internet censorship -in the name of opposing "terrorist content- without a fuckin vote.
Any country can ask any company to take down any content in *ONE HOUR* if it is "terrorist content".
Hungary, Poland, will love that. Maybe if you call to burn EU Democracy, you'll be taken down too?
Anyone still believes #EU is relevant? that EU Parliament is "democratic"? That any of this is just and fair?

Interesting news regarding #SailfishOS in this morning's community meeting.
Maybe that dream of a hackable Linux-based OS on repairable, ethically sourced hardware could finally come true! \o/

This is an essential place for the Berlin comics scene for over 30 yrs now. I've been to the monthly meetups countless times and I've given workshops there - it's a priceless incubator for art and friendship.

Very pleased to see that Mastodon already have the intention to block FLOC in a coming update.
My nieces and nephews better beware - whatever the oocasion, this will be behind any gift wrapping in the foreseeable future!

Cannot recommend #Ecosia, they send search data directly to #Bing alias #Microsoft and don't even try to protect your privacy. Also, they use a whole lot of third parties for some of their site features. Try using #Qwant, #Startpage, #Metager or #YaCy instead. More alternatives:
I actually cheated and skipped a more complicated chapter for this easier one - lots of stress and people to take care of these days, and I worried the #comics pages would otherwise peter out entirely…
