A search engine that favors text-heavy sites and punishes modern web design

(submitted by Funes-)
I've been using this search engine for a day now. It's not perfect, but it has that tidy, efficient look (remember when Google first came out?). And the results, while sometimes off the mark, have the feel of a new approach with lots of promise.

Congrats, made me miss a good hike!

Just wondering around...

Just wondering.... free apps and other charity services or project or blogs ask always help. So why not ask for free domain, free housing, free food, free internet, free hosting, free electricity- so poor people won't need to donate and in this way we will build trade-free service without need of money or any trade. Because poor people donate not rich for such a projects or ideas.

The #citizensAssembly systematically challenges #capitalism since capital can not purchase power within one.
It's now pretty clear how lobbying can be used to purchase the will of politicians.

#cambridgeAnalytica was the final proof for me that voter will can also quite effectively be bought.

But a whole bunch of (pseudo-)random people, who have enough time and support to really explore topics and understand eachother, who can't do anything to secure re-'election'... There will of course be methods of manipulation, but much harder.
The Scottish #citizensAssembly of 2020/21 was concluded earlier this year by the way, results here:

Sadly I don't think it got a lot of publicity... Strategic media silence?

Hey people in Scotland! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

I'm back with my partner for some weeks after almost 2 years 😮

Looking forward to hitchhiking directions North-West and camping/staying in bothies. Also want to visit old initiatives and new, and exchange: freeshops, activist centers, living communities etc.

Any suggestions/advice welcome 🥃
do you know of many @stevenson?

Doug, I dno of many. I think there're a few art like ones on the Black Isle but I'm ultimately unsure.
cheers! I already know some in Edinburgh and Glasgow (The Shrub, New Leaf, ACE, etc) which I'd like to reconnect with, but always happy to hear of others and help 'connect the dots'.

Oh, I've had a bunch of tattie scones by now! Still stocking up though ;p (But honestly, I'm just going to learn how to make em going forward)
In Glasgow there's The Space:
there's a new queer Yiddish anarchist café that just opened up in Glasgow called the Pink Peacock, can recommend

Is #Edinburgh still hooked on the 'book, or is there a critical mass on mastodon already? @fitheach@wu_lee
Just like everywhere else online activity will be dominated by FB.

There are a few Edinburgh residents I interact with on the Fediverse. There may be others, as I'm not always aware of people's precise locations.

Plus, I used to live in Edinburgh.

Why the particular interest?

because I'm back in Scotland for a couple of weeks!

Wondering what's going down... planning to see old friends and new, go hiking, visit initiatives and communities (and join in!) and generally reconnect after almost 2 years.

If I need to go on FB, I shall.

Hello Fedi,
there's this website that can be used to write letters to the future You!
It's called

You write a letter and set a date, and on that date this letter will reach you by email! 😃

I think that's cool!

Do try Whoogle, a more private, alternative front-end to Google!

It sources its results from Google and presents it in a no-nonsense manner! No ads, no trackers/cookies, no JavaScript!

It automatically changes YouTube links to Invidious, Twitter links to Nitter, Instagram links to Bibliogram, and Reddit links to LibReddit!

Sometimes, it doesn't work when Google does something with it, otherwise it's good! 😁

“European Commission announced … follow-up legislation that will make the use of chatcontrol mandatory for all e-mail and messenger providers.”

Guess what isn’t covered by this? Yes, the Small Web. Is it time to take the idea that we could all own our own places on the Web and communicate with each other privately seriously? I think so, at least.

Any way to fight against it at the random-person level? I am not a programmer, cannot create from nothing new non-spying app, but I feel the need to do something, act instead of waiting for doom. Like Snowden wrote in "Permanent Record" that he hosted TOR node after found about that all surveillance and he wasn't yet sure what to do with it... Or joining some organization or something... To be a part of something bigger, to use technical knowledge to create something...
Doesn't this exclude people whose ISPs don't allow the hosting of services?

Pretty sure this is a giant puffball! Any possible poisonous species I could have mistaken it for?

I had the 'Giant Puffball' positively identified by three other people, and it was delicious! Very creamy texture, pungent aroma.

It seems the biggest danger in identification is when they're very small. Several Amanita species look like tiny eggs when they start out, and can be deadly.

Would be a shame to pick puffballs when they're that small anyway, they can grow more than 30cm wide apparently. #foraging

Most puffballs are small all the time, so it's more those ones that pose a risk methinks

Drug Problems?

Do we have drug problems? No. Why? Because the problem is trade, we trade drugs to get profit, so we abuse the use of drugs. Simple.

Stocks, shares... Anybody in on that? Got hot takes? The thin line between political belief and pleasant survival...
used to be, if i had the money i would buy index funds. where's the thin line?
well, money could arguably be put to much better use for humanity than 'investing' in companies that are already doing well 🤷

It's arguably still sensible on an individual level, for retirement, etc. But does seem a bit like betting on a broken system.
no doubt it's broken but i wouldn't do it for my convictions, just as a financial tool…
This is the best advice I found so far.

hi tutanota i love your services but just a small request as i am not that aware of but i found tutanota is using AES128 there is no doubt it is secure and you guys are seriously working on post-quantum cryptography but i think this new crypto algorithm is at least 4-5years away and QC are becoming more powerful so i think tutanota should use/move to AES256 as this is more secure and not hard to implemented do consider my feedback.😃
Thanks, we'll consider it. We definitely expect to update our algorithms sooner than in 4-5 years, even if it's going to be the pq algorithms.

It is not your problem

It is not your problem that you need to pay for your bills, water, house and food. It is system's problem, so do not act like it is your problem. Think about how create trade-free products and services and how to get out from this system by not enslaving other people.

Anti-ad action in Berlin

"Werbung formt unser Unterbewusstsein" (advertising shapes our subconsciousness)

The ad on the right announces the reopening of the art museum Neue Nationalgalerie after several years of renovation.
Slow clap.
true... there may be people who could make a coherent arguement for defacing that one, but I would struggle.
