I like the slower but much nicer route to and from work... #bikecommuting

The problem is switzerland is that it is not a flat country. Cycling in Holland is ok but in Switzerland is .... too hard
  
@kris That's not a problem, that's an advantage. It makes cycling more interesting and fun. I imagine downhill tracks in the Netherlands must be pretty boring.

My regular commute leads along two lakes which are pretty flat. This nicer route is the same diatance but includes some steeper parts.

If you think cycling in Switzerland is hard, you should go cycletouring Iceland.  I also heard Greenland is pretty rough, too. I've never tried, though.
  
When I was a teen we were living in an area of upmountain hills.T

he next bigger town with a good public library, record shops etc was about 15 km away. I could either chose a route that was more than uncomfortable due to the amount of cars, longer but almost flat. The alternate route went through the lonely forest, whith quite a few hills. Plus the first three km were rather steep, the worst of the whole trip. My bike was a so called "Dutch Roadster", which meant heavy and no gears at all. I did that route every one or two weeks.
I was amazed that after some time I suddenly could drive those first three km without the need to stop. Still am because that was quite a steep road. Which also meant that I really had to be careful on the way back. 50km/h were absolutely possible, but also absolutely unsafe.
During winter time that route was quite scary, because at one farm was a dog that almost always chased me, and in the dark I could not even see it. I was always driving as fast as I could and was full of fear.
If a car came I had to stop because I could no longer see the road. Once I was almost run over by deer. I was fearing to meet wild boats. Luckily we did not meet. That could have become really dangerous.

Thanks, @Beni Grind ! Will do! :-)
  
Sadly Deltalis is closing its datacenter in the Swiss alps. So I'm in the market for a new server location. I hope I'll be able to save grindcore.ch but there will be some downtime....

@navigium never thought that there is a "Verein" for such thing, also prices seem resonable to me... maybe I'll consider something like this as an option for hosting one day

@Beni Grind If you need Swiss server i could recommend you https://cloudc.me/
Also if it is necessary - i can provide you for a temporary use my ARM server (512mb mem, 4core, orangePi) based in Russia
  
@Alex Fence There is also the Community Rack (communityrack.org) Verein which has a rack at the ColoZüri data center.

@ivan zlax Thank you for the offer but I should be fine. I still have until the end of 2018 to decide what to do. My decision also depends on what course of action ipng.ch will decide on.

#Freifunk is supposedly illegal in Switzerland which is trying hard to become a surveillance state. It's just not clear who it is illegal for. Freifunk is a German organisation and it's not illegal to use a open wifi or vpn.

I just read an article about Peepeth which is a decentralized social network which is apparently invite-only... I don't think they understand the meaning of "decentralized".
  
@Lohan G - another member of the old #Fediverse :D Welcome to #Hubzilla
  
It's great to see people of the old GNU Social fediverse over here on #Hubzilla! Welcome @Stanislav N. aka pztrn !
  
Hello there! :P
  
  
Hi @Stanislav :)
  
Luzerner Schulen finden es eine gute Idee für den Jugendschutz die Sicherheit von TLS-Zertifikate-Prüfung auf den privaten Geräten von Schülern und Lehrpersonen zu untergraben. #Schweiz

Jugendschutz an Schulen birgt Risiken für Lehrer und Schüler

Um Schüler vor Pornografie oder Gewalt im Internet zu schützen, setzen die Luzerner Schulen auf einen Filter. Dieser erweist sich als Bumerang, wenn die privaten Geräte von Lehrern und Schülern ausserhalb der Schule eingesetzt werden.
  
I just flashed my second #Freifunk router. One step closer to mobile #Freifunk access. Fun fact: This post reaches you over my new router which isn't directly connected to the internet but passes the post on to the old ff-router over its mesh network. Awesome tech is awesome :-D
  
Für die Schweizer hier. #Schweiz

Referendum gegen die Überwachung von Versicherten

Das Parlament ist nach massivem Lobbying eingeknickt. GPS-Tracker und Drohnen - so weit sollen Versicherungen bei der Überwachung von Versicherten gehen dürfen. Wir wehren uns dagegen. Bist du dabei?
  
Wow! :-)

Upgrading my router to #OpenBSD 6.2
  
o_O And how did you do that?
  
@Manuel what do you mean? I just booted the bsd.rd ram disc as always...
  
I thought you meant a dsl router, that's why I was so surprised. But you mean something else, don't you?

Hiveway.io shamelessly rips off of Mastodon and slaps a blockchain on top, for some reason
Bild/Foto




The Hiveway platform raised more than a few eyebrows today with an announcement by none other than John McAfee, unveiling the startups rebrand from Etherhive to Hiveway. At this time, McAfee’s affiliation with the project remains unclear, but he nevertheless appears to be providing consultation to the team. This is all fine and good, however, one detail sticks out like a sore thumb: Hiveway is a complete and utter ripoff of Mastodon.
