Discovering the excellent German band "Die Ärzte" only today - I have been living here ten years - after finding a live album on one of the mini discs I got second hand.

After last week's Qnap ransomware disaster I picked up my effort again to write all our valuable videos and pictures on m-disc immutable DVD-R and BD-R discs. I really hope that will keep making this excellent archive solution and won't phase them out completely. Imho discs like m-disc are real archival solutions, especially since these are ransomware proof.

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.

hi, the instance has blocked FLoC on all pages and media that our web servers serve.

We previously, currently, and in the future, will NEVER had ads, and we do not support any efforts to track our users.

Google is an important part of the advertising cabal, and is quite evil thank you very much.

(here is the snippet we use in nginx:
add_header Permissions-Policy "interest-cohort=()";
