πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ The EU Commission could break securely #E2EE encrypted communications with the upcoming #chatcontrol2.0 proposal. If all messaging providers were forced to search private messages, this would require backdoors and undermine security! (1/7)

@woozong Not sure what you're looking for, but after some experimenting I went with an asus router myself. The OS on those make setting up openvpn very very simple.

For an affordable UPS, APC makes some decent ones. That's what I use.

@woozong One thing I can really recommend is a UPS. Just to make sure that a power glitch doesn't wipe out your setup while you're away. And an openvpn server on your router so that you can dial in and fix things remotely.

That's been sufficient for me so far.

@pixouls Thanks 😊! Hope I find the time to work on some new stuff soon, ironically during the pandemic it's been tough to find the time πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

@shibacomputer Yeah definitely. Have a whole archive of screenshots and the like.

@shibacomputer Very interesting. One thing I've also found with the NFT-based art galleries is that their approach to moderating content is basically non-existent. It's one of the reasons I quickly moved away from there (alongside with environmental concerns).

When on Knownorigin I noticed some alt-right content, which was pretty obviously racist. Posted it in their group chat and the entire community there was pretty much ok with it, defending it even. Knownorigin mods did nothing about it. Same with Superrare. Really makes it the ideal vehicle for the alt-right as they really seemed to be flourishing on there.
