Multi admins


@Ingo Jürgensmann rightly suggested i ask this in a new thread,

I asked this, partly as if it is possible to have more than 1 admin than it means more than one point of contact, which is good if someone for what ever reason (maybe something happens to them or a family member) then someone can take over, and be a point of contact, even if that person just would like to hand over control, it makes it easier. or someone can at least let other admin know there is a problem, and importantly the users on that server (don't need to disclose details). so they can back up and transfer to a different server if need be.

it could also be good, as for new admins there could be a lot to learn, so having some help requires that person to have admin too.

Gosport hospital deaths: Prescribed painkillers 'shortened 456 lives'


https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-44547788

The #uk (#United #Kingdom) as a country now has a LOT to answer for. To add to the insults, we have the cheek to try and lecture #donaldtrump about #immigration and #childseperation, while this may be a bad policy (Which I am in NO WAY Condoning) before we lecture the USA surely we should ensure our own affairs are clean. #grenfell is another example #gross #failure our #arrogant #ruling #elite, #71lives lost in a #fire, which was #preventable. #equality is dead the #uk

Link Tax


Today is a day of action against the link tax proposed in the EU and the rule to force web site owners to install filters to stop copyright content, from being uploaded.

I have put a blog post on the @Devon & Cornwall GNU / Linux user group website which is from the Open Media Group (are they on the federated network ??) we need to defend the web in the EU

Mozilla plug in for facebook containers


As I have to use facebook to keep in touch with thelocal football team I have now installed a add on for Mozilla firefox (works with v57+) that creates a container and isolates facebook from the rest of the browser.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/facebook-container/

If I log out, and then go to the cookies page in privacy the cookies are still shown however, I delete them anyway, they should be isolated. There are some limts to this don't expect to click like on external sites for example or login using facebook but at least it offers some protection.

Still won't make me use facebook more than really needed. I am guessing this is one way round having to #deletefacebook of course is the preferred option.

@Devon & Cornwall GNU / Linux user group may be interested in this too.

Chinese city gets 'smartphone zombie' walkway


https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-news-from-elsewhere-44383449

Kinda depressing eh, you get this in shops here, people on their phone while being served, so they don't even engage with the till assistant. If china is the taste of things to come, there is no hope.
