Aha, I get it now: the GenAI enshittification of cloud services like Slack, StackOverflow, Google, Discord, MSFT, and all the rest is a conspiracy by lonely SysAdmins who miss the old days of running IT equipment in-house and are pushing a return to on-prem đŸ–„ïžđŸ’œâŒšïž

It. All. Makes. Sense. đŸ€Ș

Why AWS changed its policy on charging for HTTP errors on S3 buckets, how Bluesky dealt with an explosion in popularity by moving to on-prem, IBM buys Hashicorp, and our thoughts on cloud governance.

Damit das nicht untergeht: Die kritisiert wie die Bundesverwaltung ihre digitale BĂŒro-Infrastruktur in die 365 verlagert. Aus verschiedenen GrĂŒnden:

  1. Lokaler Betrieb (on premise) ist lÀnger möglich.

  2. IT Security-VorfÀlle von Microsoft wurden nicht untersucht.

  3. Der Bundesangestellten wird zu viel Eigenverantwortung bei der Klassifizierung von Dokumenten zugemutet (und es gibt Doppelspurigkeiten mit GEVER).

Google showed off new business AI solutions while promoting their water cooled data centers. Now we find out Microsoft is not only failing to meet their carbon emissions goal, their emissions are actually UP 30%.
I just don't see how this era of cloud AI is going to be a sustainable business model...

I'm thinking seriously about getting Google out of my life, and trying NextCloud.

Looking to get a personal account through a managed provider.

Does anyone have any experience with it?

How does it compare to ownCloud?

Any hosts I should look at or avoid?

Any apps I should get for it, or avoid?

Any issues I should be aware of before I switch?

thinking about some top cybersecurity tips for normal people

  1. use a password manager (like 1Password (cloud), Bitwarden (cloud), or KeepassXC (local))

  2. use an ad blocker (uBlock Origin)

  3. maximize the use of multi-factor authentication

  4. host contacts in a privacy-respecting service. do not share contacts with apps

  5. use a privacy-respecting email provider. archive email to a local drive, which @thunderbird makes easy

  6. for regularly visited websites, even if you sign-in to use them, use @torproject Tor Browser, if the service does not block Tor

for technical folks

  1. self-host contacts

  2. self-host email

  3. use YubiKeys everywhere

@yawnbox Sorry, recommending to put someone's passwords into the strongly disqualifies the authority of its author. 😞

In case you didn't notice: the cloud is a bad idea for personal or sensitive information.

Okay. Interesting. Moving files from Dropbox creates placeholder files that are empty but take up space. There's a little cloud symbol beside the files in the dropbox directories, but they refused to download. Sheesh. Luckily, the files exist online. I've logged on to the online dropbox and downloaded all my files to my hard disk in a separate directory as a backup. I'm trying bypassing the dropbox refused to sync issue by signing out of dropbox and orphaning the current directories. Signing on again, but creating new dropbox directory tree on disk that must be downloaded again from the .Hoping that this fixes the problems I'm having between platforms, at least from the Mac perspective.

And Bam! Less than 10 minutes later, has laid down all the files from the in the new directories. opens the previously damage project (because dropbox had refused to download things) with everything consistent with the iPhone version. Yay!

Sometimes starting from Vanilla is the way to go!

If you use on cloud, amazon-ec2-utils is headed your way with some helpful udev rules and tools.

Now you can manage block devices using the same "sdX" conventions used in the AWS console and API. 😉

It's on the way to for users, too! đŸ„ł

I wrote a quick post about how to set up amazon-ec2-utils on @fedora and how to see the differences after installing it:

Remember guys: hosting in the cloud doesn’t mean you don’t need backups: always have backups that are stored with an independent third party!

In which I notice that AWS’s S3 is getting more and more competition all the time, and thus the object-storage space is becoming interesting, and also that there’s a angle:
