#Fediverse: I created `Cloud Firewall` addon. Block connections to big 5 tech clouds based on IP address ranges they own. If a site/page/resource IP matches a bundled list of IP address ranges, it's blocked
It's not a hosts/filterlist type "ad tracker blocker".
It's "firewall" - looks at IP address of URL bar and 1p/3p resources.
#Fediverse, I created "Wayback Everywhere" addon : Auto-redirect all pages opened from feeds to their archived versions in Wayback Machine + Auto-save to WM if not yet archived. Has Updatable "Excludes List" + can also Auto-Exclude sites.

All features listed briefly : https://gitlab.com/gkrishnaks/WaybackEverywhere-Firefox/blob/master/README.md
In Cloud Firewall addon, I'm working on a new feature : "copy to clipboard all the cloud-hosted resource URLs in this page" button to popup menu.
The resource URLs will be copied in 2 formats : YAML, JSON.
YAML is more human-friendly.
Feedback needed : Is there any other human-friendly format I can provide?

xclip is a nice utility for redirecting the output of commands typed at the command line to the clipboard(where stuff is stored when doing things like cut-and-paste).
On fedora to install:
yum install xclip
dnf install xclip
Be aware there are three clipboards and that the (Shift+Insert) one is usually called clipboard
w | xlipc -i sel clipboard
pipes the output of the w command to the clipboard which can then be pasted(say, to a browser) with the mouse or otherwise.
Another great LibrePlanet talk, discussing the technologies that might help us decentralize our computing to the client. Or in business-speak "edge":
@InvaderXan it's about designing cities for thermal efficiency.
Say hello to Telephant!
I've written a little Mastodon client for the Desktop - called Telephant - and am currently looking for beta testers!
Want to help out and don't mind compiling the app yourself? (Don't worry it's fairly straight forward and I've added detailed instructions to the README!)
Join me here:
Looking forward to hearing your feedback!
broke vs poor Afficher plus
broke is temporary, poor is a life of fear
I'm getting really tired of talking to broke people who wear the badge of poverty and then take it off a month later because they got theirs
it would take hundreds of thousands of dollars for someone like me to not to be in poverty, and that's most likely never going to happen even if I somehow manage to find steady income
the poverty hole can't be filled with small amounts when you literally have nothing
If you're on Mastodon and know the web address of someone on the Fediverse, you can use this to follow them.
1. Copy their profile's web address into the Mastodon search box (see screenshots).
2. Click search, this should bring up a link to the profile and a follow button next to it.
3. Click follow!
This works with many kinds of Fediverse addresses including PixelFed, PeerTube and others. Try it!
You can also use this technique with web addresses of individual posts.
Sneak peek (pic): Next version of Cloud Firewall addon will provide a new feature - popup button to disable the global allow/block rules only on some selected sites (as per users' wishes) Afficher plus
This is a popular feature request from users (and the ticket #1 in my Gitlab issue tracker!). #CloudFirewall
The Laniakea supercluster is home to not only the Virgo cluster-of-clusters but also to the Milky Way at its fringes. Ignoring the expansion of the universe, and having mapped the momentum of over 8,000 galaxies astronomers were able determine the shape of the gigantic gravitational watershed of galaxies to which our galaxy is a part.
Laniakea, in Hawaiian, means immeasurable heaven, which is an apt name...
Good idea : Do NOT toggle xpinstall need signatures to FALSE. Suggesting otherwise is a bad idea as most people won't remember to toggle it back to TRUE. We can just wait out until the installed browser variant gets the hot-fix.
I thought of releasing next version of Cloud Firewall addon this weekend , well.. that has to wait!
FIREFOX PSA Afficher plus
New Firefox update seems to be disabling extensions and disallowing installation of extensions. Refreshes, reinstalls, and reboots do no fix this. This is on version 66.03
Currently, cannot tell if it's all users, but many seem to be affected.
<video> essentially serves to wrap HTMLMediaElement (which it subclasses), it's "player", the RenderVideo it creates for the "render tree", and to manage it's whether it's full screen (a later topic). It also handles poster images via HTMLImageLoader.
HTMLMedaElement in turn coordinates between that player, some tracks, a HTMLMediaSession for security, an optional built-in JS playback UI, and the DOM of which it's part.
