Two years ago, the front slide of my #FOSDEM presentation featured my birdsite handle. This time, I was proud to plug Mastodon :-D

If you weren't at or, like me, didn't managed to go to all the talks you wanted to follow then you can watch them on :

Vous vous souvenez quand Google annonçait ne plus lire les mails ?

Hier je m'envoie sur ma boîte perso le pdf d'une réservation d'hôtel en PDF depuis ma boîte pro (Gmail).

Google a lu le PDF et ajouté ce séjour dans mon agenda pro.

On se demande bien pourquoi les archives protégées par MdP sont détectées comme des virus par cette merde... 🤔

Is anybody coming to FOSDEM this weekend?

NSA deleted surveillance data it pledged to preserve

"...the agency did not preserve the content of internet communications intercepted between 2001 and 2007... To make matters worse, backup tapes ... were erased in 2009, 2011 and 2016, the NSA said."

The agency tells a federal judge that it is investigating and 'sincerely regrets its failure.'

I completed the.upgrade of one of my PCs from 17.04 to 17.10.
All working fine, I have the impression that it loads even faster, but the splash screen resolution is wrong. Or better... it's right but magnified 3/4 times.

Has anyone found the same issue?

We worked hard, we nearly made it but Microsoft seems to have won this battle.

We, at the NHoS team, worked hard to create an Ubuntu based replacement for Windows for the National Health Service in UK:
