Crazy that there is no way to say "this website has no favicon" without a useless request that leads to a 404.

One fun thing about living in the 21st century is that we know what the surfaces of other worlds look like, and you can set them as the background image for your phone.

So heres the thing. People don’t host their own website as often now because the barrier has been raised up.

Tech wise is may not have been raised a huge amount but it’s been raised none the less. And the perception of the barrier to entry looks, to most people, to be very high.

I just found this great privacy research and tech channel on #peertube that I feel a lot of people would appreciate:)

Take a look and show him some love


This is exactly the use case I was describing just recently. Single-user peertube instances for the greatest control meanwhile being part of the larger network.

Spin one up:)

Maybe this could be a part of the simple web:

Until we have an economic-layer replacement for advertising-based publishing models, the least we could do is get personal data tracking out of advertising. This company tried it and their revenue went up despite all of the claims in Google’s own research on the matter.

Hi! Your homepage loads a 77KB image which is in a hidden comment section apparently. Blocking it (using uBlock Origin) takes your page weigh down to less than 50KB.
Nice website btw! The fonts are a little big for me but that's subjective. The content is interesting.

Anything fun to do when you have two Pis and a domain name?
