some carriers provide internet plans only for tablets.

i tried such a sim card in several devices - it did not connect. checked the apn on the tablet where it works. same.

as i understand the carrier only sees the imei, is there a way to find out if the device is a tablet or phone via imei number?

so, we were getting spam on our prosody xmpp. it never happened before, and i wonder where the spammers get our jids from. may it be they were able to scan diaspora pages and get the jid’s from there?

still, so i tried to configure mod_firewall and it wasn’t that easy, i just blocked everything. (: then i used the block-spam.pfw script from the mod_firewall, and tried to send me a message from other server’s users that is not in my roster. did not help.

so eventually mod_block_strangers helped me, and i believe i won’t get spam anytime soon.

For example, the recent standardisation of DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) pitted advocates for dissidents and protestors against network operators who use DNS for centralised network management, and child safety advocates who promote DNS-based filtering solutions. If the IETF were to only decide upon technical merit, how would it balance these interests?

this answer to @{Dennis Schubert; denschub@pod.geraspora.de} post seems reasonable.

it is indeed seems possible to map some subset of activitypub to the current diaspora functionality.

moreover that ruby libraries for ap already exists, there needs to be work done on integration, which is not easy, of course, but i think necessary - because otherwise diaspora stays isolated from the rest of federated world.

i think we have to try to create a social demand for this. if there is a demand, these functionality is more likely to be implemented - whether by diaspora team or by the fork.

well, the main problem is, that we have lack of developers, which is because diaspora is not that popular, and it is already a miracle that we have diaspora, and we have the existing team.

իրականում այս պատմութեան մէջ մի բան էլ ա հետաքրքրաշարժ։

այն ա որ greenhost֊ը փաստօրէն ֆինանսաւորուել ա ամն կառավարութեան կողմից։ ու հիմա այդ ֆինանսաւորումը հարցի տակ ա։

գրինհոստը յայտնի ա որպէս հոստինգ նրանց համար, ով վախենում ա գրաքննութիւնից, եւ իր երկրի կառավարական անիւներից՝ երկիրը կարող ա լրագրողին հռչակել տեռորիստ, եւ ինտերպոլով փորձել գտնել, թէ ով ա գրում ինչ֊որ բան։ գրինհոստը հէնց այդ տեսակի խնդիրներն էր լուծում։

i don’t know, i understand that government funded institutions are often not really efficient. I understand that. I understand that may be there is an intent to save money.
