Somebody stop me! I got my personal @nextcloud instance up and running, and now I am installing too many apps
This is so cool 😍
Spun up another server because I want to try to run my own @nextcloud instance.
Was not trying to learn the differences between `useradd` and `adduser` today, but it happened.
You should probably use `adduser`. It's built on `useradd` but takes care of more initial setup: it prompts you to set a login password, sets bash instead of sh as the default shell, creates a home directory, etc.
Did you know you can click an iPhone’s power button 5x, and it will disable fingerprint and facial recognition until you enter the password?
I respect Shoshana Zuboff’s work on #surveillance #capitalism. I am nearly finished with her book and share many of her concerns. But HOLY MOLY she likes to hold forth. I hope her work will continue to find popularizers who know how to get to the point.

I think #Mastodon got it right by allowing "Delete & re-draft" instead of "Edit" for toots.
With Edit, I don't know how you'd keep trolls from posting Thing A 😇, getting lots of boosts and favorites, then editing the toot to Thing B 😈 and claiming its popularity.
There could be an indicator that the toot was edited, but would it show which historical version of a toot each user liked? Could users unfavorite a historical version and favorite the new one, or vice versa?
It gets messy quickly.
