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).

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.

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:

Currently drawing another -style chapter.

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 pages would otherwise peter out entirely…
