For over a decade Philips Hue offered lights that work without sharing your data to the cloud. This is changing soon and we need your help to make some noise to convince them to revert this decision.
Interesting and yet so depressing video from thunderf00t about climate change:
What a day. Woke up with a weird pain around my waist. One hour later pain was so strong I could crawl up the walls. I knew what’s coming. Went to hospital but before I went through all the paperwork the little friend made it’s way to the kidney. No morphine needed. Pretty big stone I gave birth to. Don’t recomend it.
Czy ktoś korzysta może i poleca jakiś mikroportfel? Mam Spocketa, który po kilku latach używania nadaje się już tylko do wyrzucenia :P Najchętniej wziąłbym coś z metalu. Grunt by było małe - tylko karty, dokumenty i może jakiś banknot.
And thats how you destroy your garden kids.
Yay! Playing around with the digger\o/mThis weekend together with @antilopa we will be digging some trenches around the plot. Want to deliver electricity and water to few parts of the future garden. Also time to digg those water tanks which will gsther rainwarer and store it for the garden (6 of them in total). Plus the most exciting of it all, digging in 100meters of pipe which will work as a ground heat exchange for our ventilation system.
Ground is very hard so thing aint easy. Especially to dig the hole for those water tanks, but its like a little boy dream come true so I’ll enjoy while it lasts. We have the digger until monday… #diy #spruitje
In all the mess yesterday with disroot we did manage to get small work done in the house. We wanted to experiment with ideas for finishing the walls. Since we went for clay plaster because of its properties like eg. Being natural material and regulating humidity, slapping latex paint would just male no sense. So to get the walls white but no loose any of the properties, we decided to try out limewash. We got access to powdered slacked almost pure lime and made first attempt at creating the paint.
We did the first layer yesterday. We wanted to avoid having brush strokes because the wall itself has some texture already and we feared the walls will turnout too much looking like a village house (we like natural rustic stuff but it should be balanced). We experimented with rollers but those dont work well. We settled for using brushes followed by trowel to smoothen the suffice getting rid of brush strokes. Second layer should cover everything nicely, while still giving that cloudy look. We'll see.
So little update on things. One of the servers (old main) has gone crazy while migrating some of the core services to the new server. I was trying to revert the process but that cause the server to go offline. Unable to bring it back up. I have gone down to datacenter just to learn the old server crashed due to filesystem corruption. This does not look good.
While doing filesystem check on the old server, I will try to get email and xmpp back online. Nextcloud, will come back after the filesystemcheck (fingers crossed).
Base structure for stairs is in. Cant believe it. Still need to reinforce it with base structure for cupboard underneath tomorrow and we should be able to use the stairs now. We are still planning to put 2cm bamboo layer as a top layer. It will look,awesome, similar to the windows and will give the whole structure more strength.
Time to say hi to my bed now....
We reached the turn 🎉
End for today. Tomorrow hopefully rest of the starts and maybe even some structural reinforcement. Though, I also plan to prepare celling and walls in our kid's room for painting. We'll see. She's back saturday so there is little time to finish everything and surprise her with her own room she never had.
That was pretty exhausting day....
While I'm busy and bragging online about plastering, @antilopa silently working on a stairs construction. She finished the stage of designing, measuring and calculating all that stuff and now begun the phase of actually building it \♥/
Nothing wakes me up faster then abuse report CC’ed to the abuse team a the datacenter.

That (how ironic) thread is very well written response to post by Eugen.
On point. It’s sad to see that Eugen seem to be forgetting about whom he’s talking about.
“Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”
Preping another room for plaster work. Starting with the door and wall heating.
This is a great conversation to follow.
Just got sent an epic picture made by my neighbour of me on the roof!
Ended the day watering the roof and enjoying the sunset. Since our roof has suffered from drought already last year and has problems to recover, I am doing watering every few days (since there is pretty much no rain). Now that the roof is slowly recovering, I started moving plants growing on the edge in the stones, and replanting them more in the middle of the roof.
I hope this will work out.
Weather won. Time for a little swim.
Oooouf... this was hard. Its extremely hot so that was the biggest issue. We had to clean IBC's from inside and connect them together. Those three will be used to collect rainwatet on north-east side of the house and we will use that water in the garden. The overflow will be directed into the pond.
Now time for little break and do the other three on south-west side.
Another point on the list done. We needed to properly connect water to the caravan from our house. 20m of 25mm pipe,.with a bit of pushing and pulling and its all connected. Good we prepared guide pipes in the foundation before so getting things into the house apart from a bit of digging was not bad. Once we do groundwork in few weeks we will dig the water, network and electricity pipes in the ground. Although now connecting caravan where we used to live (now just using it for shower as we have no bathroom in the house yet), in near future we will be replacing it with a proper workshop were we're hopefully going to do ton of cool projects.
Now time for ice coffee break.
☕ Morning fedi. Today pretty busy day. Have entire list of things to do. Mainly in preparation to upcoming ground work around the house and decided I will do some exhibitionism and brag about it here.
Why #FediPact is important (1/3)
The #fediverse should all agree to never federate with #Facebook
#FediPact is an agreement between all current Mastodon instances to never federate with #Facebook, in response to the #Meta corporation's recent announcement that they will be making Facebook compatible with the #ActivityPub standard, and thus allow Mastodon and other ActivityPub services to federate with Facebook.
Most of the arguments I hear in favor of federating with Facebook come down to trying to expand the reach of the fediverse and Mastodon in particular. If people on Facebook can interact with Mastodon, this can only grow the fediverse and make it more relevant. This is a failure to recognize the real threat of Meta.
This pro-Facebook sentiment is usually accompanied by accusations of #FediPact supporters being irrationally dogmatic, overly paranoid about advertising and other for-profit ventures, overly concerned with privacy, and/or ignorant of how technology works. The attitude here is "Don't be so paranoid, just try it and you will see the benefits." This is a straw-man argument against #FediPact.
