Your privacy is *very* important to us.

Not quite as important as us having all your data. But pretty important. On a scale of one to ten, your privacy ranks a solid four.

You can rest assured that - after we've scanned and processed and extracted every last bit of commercial advantage out of your data - the bitter, tarry residue left gumming up the cogs of our machine will be treated in full compliance with the best privacy legislation laundered money can buy.

And that's a promise.


Uh, so apparently they restored the Ghent Altarpiece and


A vulnerability in Citrix software is causing traffic jams in Netherlands: with remote access to gov Ministries shut down, all their ppl have to come into the office this morning.

@peter and one of the images in the gallery on that page is actually a screenshot from their Kenya lending app......

@phildini IndieWeb for all modern web plumbing (WebMention, micropub and -sub, etc), regardless of whether you use WordPress, static site generators etc.

@berkes meer tendentieus dan inhoud. Ben beter gewend v FTM. Als je vraagtekens stelt bij economisch belang Schiphol, probeer dat dan in kaart te brengen. Interne kruissubsidies aan de kaak stellen is niet onnuttig, maar zegt niets over het economisch belang op zichzelf.

Prompted by @laura / @laurakalbag post "I don't track you", I looked at what I need to do about embedded content to make that a true statement for my own blog.

The Norwegian Consumer Council has published an aptly named report on the online advertising industry: Out of Control.

@amcewen I noticed there's one such breadfund in my hometown just started early '19. Will ping them to have a chat. Thanks for your toots, they've activated me to look at this stuff again.

@amcewen yes, I've explored the Dutch site and regularly mentions how they've made changes over time based on experiences. Also the various breadfunds support each other as a network, whenever one is reaching its limit supporting one or more of their members. I definitely like the up-to-50-ppl-cells, to facilitate trust and social interaction, and then weaving those into a wider network for more resilience overall.

@amcewen their support levels are definitely better than earlier examples I see, up to 2.5 times social benefits, for max 2 yrs, and depending on level of monthly deposits you made.

@amcewen I see now lists 25000 ppl in 550 groups. (wow that means that the site maintainers at 6 euro per participant per month maintenance fee have 150k monthly revenue.)

@amcewen looking at those breadfunds here in NL in the past I was unsure about if the size of the group of some can muster a high enough level of support to be really meaningful for the receiver other than in a social sense.

Made a small php snippet that gives E the day number of today, which she uses to number some of her postings. Even if it basically is just a single php date function , it is somehow very satisfying to create these tiny tools (like the earlier one creating the right html encoding for that code snippet).

The first week of 2020 was one of vacationing. We left Tuesday morning for Switzerland visiting dear friends for New Year's Eve, and spending a few relaxed days. Three former roommates live there, and we all go back 30 years. We returned home on Saturday. I did some invoicing and prepared a laptop for our new colleague who starts coming Monday. We removed the Christmas tree from the living room, and it's now in the garde
