I am amazed at what is getting blocked. So much ad traffic or telemetry crap that is invisible to the end user - all these resources used for surveillance infrastructure.
Here are the instructions. You'll need an RPi or a computer that's on all the time, running Linux, to act as the DNS server. RPi is about $AUD50. I like @lbhq
, but there are other stores.
This is a chart of my #sleep deficit for the last year. I really need to do something about my sleep hygiene.

Hello #Facct22 community. Looking for guidance in the video upload form, which for some reason instead of DOI asks for both EasyChair ID and TAPS ID, but we have so many 'IDs' for our paper that not sure what to use. ty

hello and welcome to another edition of Friday #memes, brought to you late by day of yarn dependency resolutions (1/3)
We have now collectively gained 112,413 monthly active users in the last few days, and 149,720 compared to the end of March. That's a 62% increase. Total now at 384K MAU across Mastodon.
Lots of new people on my local instance and elsewhere so it's a good time for me to do a new #introduction
Call me Zack. I have been knocking around these nets we call inter- since 1995, give or take a year. These days I teach systems programming at CMU and in my copious free time I do research into online censorship. I have also done a ton of hacking on various free software projects, most recently Autoconf and libxcrypt.
Offline, I used to do pottery, but then I ran out of space in my house for decorative cup-shaped objects. I've also been known to dabble in candle-making, which was more fun back when I had a local friend who would take them and carve art into them. Also, commercial candle molds are terrible. I kind-of want to learn enough mechanical engineering to design a better mold.
I talk mostly about computery things, because it's what I know best, but I'm interested in just about anything. Tell me about your personal obsessions! No matter what they are!
An #introduction post:
I’m a #softwareengineer who believes in labour #organizing, #antiracism, #decolonization, and #radicalleft politics more broadly. I occasionally write essays about the intersection of tech and society on my blog.
When I’m not at work I read (#sff mainly, but also any nonfiction about human systems and why they’re so janky), go #climbing, and attempt various forms of #crafting (most recently #sewing and #embroidery). On Fridays I post #memes. Nice to meet you!
