I will be transitioning to a new instance soon, so if you’d like to keep following me, add danarel@mastodon.technology

I won’t be moving overnight but I figure I’ll get a head start on followers now.

Ok friends, I am officially leaving this account for @danarel

Follow me there, this is my last post here.

If you only do one thing on #DataPrivacyDay make it changing your search engine. Google and others learn a great deal about you based on what you search for.

There are better alternatives out there.

It's Saturday, but here's my #ScreenshotSunday since I won't be around much tomorrow.

It's a rather fresh installation of Ubuntu 18.10 and I would love people's recommendations on their favorite customizations and apps.

Okay everyone. I’d like to officially announce that RealPrivacy is now:

ThinkPrivacy.

Same great site, new name.

New domain is thinkprivacy.io

Dan Arel boosted

So I have lost RealPrivacy dot IO unless I pay $140 because my registrar, DreamHost, told me it expired on the 25th, when in fact, they needed it renewed by the 21st in order to keep it.

I paid $40 to renew it yesterday, they gladly took my payment and then gave up the domain name.

Temporarily up and running at:

privacy.danarel.com/

Hopefully I am able to get my domain back and be up and running again soon.

Registrar seems at a loss right now as to what happened. They had no problem taking my money to renew the domain, but seemingly didn't actually accomplish the goal of keeping the domain with me.

Not sure when this will be resolved.

Dan Arel boosted

Not sure what happened by RealPrivacy is totally down. I just logged into my registrar and the sites not even listed.

I paid for another year of service yesterday.

All set up now on my new Lenovo running Ubuntu 18.10. This is soooo much faster than my old laptop running MATE. I am in love.

I just read that whole Mastodon is crumbling article and in the end, I just learned the author has no friends and is blaming @Gargron that one followers her on less popular instance...

Tweeted the other night that I was looking for a laptop, got some wonderful feedback and even a few amazing donations through the site to buy it!

This community is amazing.

Some changes to RealPrivacy yesterday.

+Removed Peerio (as they are shutting down)

+Removed US based VPNs

+Moved our hosting to GitHub

realprivacy.io

Looking to get a cheap PC laptop to install a Linux distro on. Budget is super tight.

anyone have one of these or have opinions on it?
