@victorhck thanks!

It affects both my email client and their webgui. I keep getting "A temporary failure occurred on mail server imap.mailbox.org during login for alxd@alxd.org. Please try again later." error.

After a few days and logs pasted they admitted there's a problem, but no one has any idea when they'll fix it :/

For the past three weeks I've kept having problems with mailbox.org - at multiple times I can't log into imap.mailbox.org or their webmail.

Have you had any experience with them or these outages?

I started a ticket for that, but they just blame my wifi.

CoAct, a Citizen Social Science organization is having an open call for proposals on Gender Equality research - up to 20kEUR per grant.

BookWyrm is a Fediverse alternative to GoodReads.

They've just opened their onboarding site at:


("Onboarding" is when you make it as easy as possible for people to join something.)

BookWyrm and its instances are currently still in beta testing, but you can join now if you want to try it out. Instances marked as "closed" mean you can join but you have to request an invitation.

@sirmacik well, I have all of the published ones on paper.

Classics? Le Guin's Dispossessed.

New? Climate-focused? L X Beckett's goodreads.com/en/book/show/432

Anthologies? Solarpunk Summers, Winters, Sunvault, Wings of Renewal, the Weight of Light and everything listed under goodreads.com/group/show/71259

Ping me if you want more.

@wouter Thank you! Are you aware which of these has more opportunities to join some real-life projects though? How supportive are they towards their students?

@humanetech @Erik thanks a lot :)

I'm aware of the basic difference, I just wonder which will allow more practical projects. I've met with tech unis which have very hands-off practical degrees and scientific courses with a lot of opportunities to work on something interesting.

Also, Ive heard good things about the atmosphere at Vrije, do you know anything about how supportive Fontys is towards its students and their initiatives?

A student I'm mentoring really interested in software & hardware hacking just got accepted into two universities in the :

Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (Computer Science)

Fontys University of Applied Sciences (Mechatronics)

Do you know anyone studying there / any alumni? Can you recommend any of these universities for someone very project-oriented?

I got a portrait from one of my mid & high school cybersecurity students from Austria, Larissa Marbler!

If anyone is interesting in my Cybersecurity & Fake News curriculum for high schools, it's at slides.com/pawelngei/cryptopar and slides.com/pawelngei/understan

@sgryphon My favorite, very
, would be Legacy: Life Among The Ruins, where you rebuild a civilization after a collapse, controlling a whole faction, not only a single character :)

Does a en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kessler_ make for a good story / world?

"The Space is not for us, not for the next 500 years, we must focus on fixing what we have here". A "natural" end of cultural expansionism, a powerful symbol.

Or something way too negative? What's your take?

Do I know any UI / UX designers? I'm looking for a responsive layout for a blog with an animated SVG illustration.

Paid work.

@tynanpants if they want to make them readable in the web interface, yes. If they would be decrypted only on client, it'd be a different story.

@GigaByte4711 Yeah, but Google Password Manager can show you your decrypted passwords online, even if they didn't leak. Google can decrypt them on their own server, that's the problem.

@deshipu store as in Chrome, not on their servers. I haven't used that feature for over 8 years, but I assumed they'll just have an encrypted blob they'll send to my Chrome when they sync.

@deshipu Yes, but Google Password Manager can show you all your remembered passwords in plaintext. Even if Google stores them encrypted at rest, they have ways of decrypting it on their side :/

I don't mean that they don't encrypt the data at rest. I mean that even if they do, they have the access to the key to decrypt it and have access to my plaintext passwords at any point.

I don't like it.
