Reposting for clarify and pinning.

@krruzic yeah, the point of getting off of mint.com is to stop giving access to my financial data to evil financial institutions who do things like deliberately help the GOP create tax loopholes for the rich...
@derle that looks awesome. I didn't see it because it was "below the fold" on https://alternativeto.net/software/mint/?license=opensource
I'll hafta give it a try.
@richdecibels Also in a similar vein, Primitive Technology. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAL3JXZSzSm8AlZyD3nQdBA
He does the same trick as Mr Chickadee (new to me, thanks!) of putting extra info in the subtitles. Very nice before-bed relaxation videos.
That project might either be a joke or simply dead. The corresponding github repo has no plugin, and there's nothing on the chrome store (obviously).
The concept is sound, though; it's trivially easy to fake tracking data, and only a little bit harder to build a tracking token sharing platform (to deliberately screw with analysis that links tracking tokens to location or other data).
self-hosting fediverse (pleroma)
#pleroma docs: Having trouble getting the right versions of Elixir + Erlang running on your production host because you prefer running LTS versions of Ubuntu? Try setting those up with asdf.
me: uh, okay. I guess that might resolve the horrible dependency conflicts I'm getting.
me: But now how do I install all of the pleroma dependencies with asdf?
#pleroma docs: We're not going to help you any more than that. You're on your own.
@interneteh I've had some decent luck with remotelyawesomejobs.com and indeed.com with custom filters. The former is curated just enough to prevent the worst crap from getting in, but the latter yields a greater number of acceptable results. Both will do email and/or RSS.
@sir Yeah, I have a whole separate firefox install with that addon for doing Sleeping Giants work. That and a spider makes for rapid tracking profile acquisition without having to be exposed to an excessive amount of Breitbart.
tech company layoffs
@lightdark yeah, I have a hard time buying that this is about money. It might be a factor, but 70 people is a pretty small portion of the budget.
This reminds me that despite being a diehard firefox user, I don't really provide them much financial support. This is partly a side effect of the dual org structure, but on the commercial side the few products I could buy all rub me the wrong way.
I made a resolution to provide more financial support for things I use, so I should investigate this again, but they don't make it easy.
