re: Guilty/Onions (Img text) 

Q: What's the kindest thing a stranger has done or said to you?

A: Oh God! I can't even tell this story and not cry.
I used to manage an LGBT bookstore, when bookstores were still a thing. One night, a caller says he thinks he might be gay and is considering self-harm. We were not a crisis center!
But as long as we're talking, he's safe, right?

So I talk to this guy and I answer questions, and I try to be encouraging and I'm maybe sounding a little frantic and I'm definitely ignoring the 4--5 customers in the store, and this angel of a woman puts her hand on my shoulder and asks for the phone.
"My turn, she says".

And SHE, this 50-something lesbian talks to this stranger on the phone. And a LINE FORMS BEHIND HER. Every csutomer in the store knows that call, knows that feeling, and eveyr person takes a turn talking to that man.
That story comforts me so much to this day.

Ich freue mich total. Eine #Mobilizon-Instanz für Berlin geht an den Start.
Die Einweihung wird auf einer Kundgebung am 18.6. im Görli zelebriert!

#SharingIsCaring Kommt rum! Das ganze ist draußen mit Maske und Abstand.

Die Kungebung ist in Solidarität mit den Künstler*innen in der Pandemie (die ja in Hartz IV gedrängt werden) und gegen die Geschäftsmodelle der großen Tech-Unternehmen (die unsere Privatsphäre durchdringen).

Please allow me to re-share my rough sketch of some advanced carbon capture technology



In a final step, the user took 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 .


Further results:

- – connections every several minutes to a few Canonical and ubports servers – probably tuneable, but behaving like this out of the box.

- X – connects to some NTP servers, to (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 ‘ default connections.

Interesting thread in the 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).


- 8.1 from vendor – an expected catastrophe: within one minute, it „connected everywhere“.

Oh, I just realised NewPipe isn't just for YouTube, also has SoundCloud,, framatube (peertube?), And Bandcamp. Nice!

I somehow feel like I should have known that...

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?

I'm shocked that 's foremost underground institution, the Renate Comics Library, can only pay its rent for two more months due to the pandemic.

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.
