If you have to use #Cloudflare for some reason, you can still allow #Tor users to bypass the annoying challenge that usually comes up.

Check "Firewall" -> "Tools", and add an IP access rule for "Tor" with action "Allow".

New #blogpost: “Misinformation about Permissions Policy and FLoC”.

Lots of people have been spreading the often-unnecessary advice to add a Permissions-Policy response header to their sites, and some have been going so far as to ask FLOSS maintainers to patch their software to make this the default.

If you read the actual proposals and W3C specs, you’ll find a different story.

Everybody: please calm down, take a deep breath, and read before you make such prescriptive advice.

FLoC is terrible, but telling everyone to add a magic “opt-out header” in every situation conveys a misunderstanding of everything you need to know about the opt-in/out process.

Docker creates immutable images that can't be hacked.

This may be an even better option, or addition. Just display in a banner what FLOC is, show users how to en/disable it, and let them decide. Make visible what is hidden.

Someone explain to me why that is not illegal ( inside trading ):


"July 22: Congressmen Mo Brooks, Ed Perlmutter and Mike Conaway all bought Pfizer stocks in June/July right before the US gov signed a $1.95 billion vaccine contract"

so an update has dropped for samsung phones a few day ago in russia, forcibly installing yandex and a few other government-approved apps onto russian phones (see image 1). these apps are baked into the firmware and cannot be removed. even the non-opensource ideologically motivated (putting it kindly) among us can see what a bullshit move this is.

officially, samsung say they are complying with government regulation (see image 2, translation below)

>So, as I understand it, sooner or later another update will be rolled out
>If I had bought my phone before the 1st of April, then yes. But I bought it earlier.
<All Samsung phones, including those sold after the 1st of April 2021, will have Russian software preinstalled on them.
>When I bought the phone, I wasn't warned about this danger.
>Is this an official statement from Samsung? Can I publish it?
<Yes. This is an official statement.
>Alright, thanks.

in reality, said regulation hasn't even come into effect yet. samsung is the first company to comply with it, and they did so with incredible speed. in fact, they overfulfilled their duty, and made yandex and a few other apps completely uninstallable on phones sold *after* the date the law comes into force.

russian samsung users are faced with a choice: bake apps (which may or may not be spyware) into their phones, or leave their devices unprotected going on into the future.

samsung are already a horrible vendor for android phones, and this really is the nail in the coffin for me and a lot of other people. i wouldn't recommend buying any of their products if you don't want something like this to happen to you. but hey, at least they're transparently scummy, and don't pretend to be something they're not ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Don't worry Signal won't have "ads" just features to helpfully suggest you purchase a coin they've premined 100% of, still own 80% of, and is only traded on one exchange.
A. Embarrassingly, cringey levels of scumbaggery
B. Real convenient for a "nonprofit"

Be careful where you store your keys. Apparently in the US you are now guilty until proven innocent and/or have no right to privacy. In particular the FBI can raid and confiscate any safe deposit boxes they want.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as "exponential" is in fact quadratic, or as I've recently taken to calling it, polynomial-class. If you bear with me I can demonstrate that the limit of the ratio (in the ε/δ sense) is 0

Wait where are you going?
