Pi-hole has been a success, it does not block some ads, but around 85% does get blocked. #libreops
Remote build allows you to build snaps for multiple architectures directly in Launchpad, from the command line. This has been high on the developers’ wish list, and now it’s here.
Just finished the Mastodon upgrade from 2.7.4 to 2.9.2 without a sweat. Thanks @Gargron and the rest of the team.

On 25th of this month, April, we celebrate the #Freedom Day (which commemorates the #Portuguese revolution) and so in that spirit I have been thinking to release all the illustrations #inkscape and possibly layouts (need to review them first though) #scribus under some #free license. Any thoughts? And where would be the best place to host the files? #boost

Security isn’t about protecting everything from everything. It’s knowing what you’re protecting from what (and what you’re not protecting). That’s why we use threat models.
An analogy: you don’t protect food from the environment; you protect different types of food from different factors of the environment. You might design a heat lamp to protect the freshness of your dinner but a freezer for your ice cream. What you don’t do is design a heat lamp and assume it’ll protect your ice cream also.

https://brauner.github.io/2019/02/12/privileged-containers.html Christian Brauner, maintainer of #LXC fixes a vulnerability that was discovered affecting #runC, the default #Docker container runtime. As a side note I was astonished by the amount of presentations at #FOSDEM this year about running unprivileged a.k.a. rootless containers when #LXC does it since 2013. TIL that #kubernetes and friends run fully privileged containers . Scary shit.
