    HPR3280: What We Need For the ActivityPub Network

    HPR3280: What We Need For the ActivityPub Network

    Federated social media can open up some wonderful possibilities but we need to make it happen. In this opening keynote address Evan Prodromou, who arguably started it all off, shows that he has thought long and deeply about this, and gives us his vision for where we can take it. https://www.zwilnik.com/better-social-media/activitypub-conference-2020/activitypub-2020-evan-prodromou/

    HPR3278: A Minor Victory Against Designed-In Obsolescence

    HPR3278: A Minor Victory Against Designed-In Obsolescence

    The Ipad2, at over 9 years old, is unsupported with security or any other kind of updates. Few apps in the App Store will run on its old version of IOS, and that operating system cannot be upgraded.
    As far as Apple are concerned an Ipad2 should have been sent to the scrap heap years ago. If you found its 16GB of storage wasn't enough, you were supposed to dump it and buy a new one as you couldn't add more. If you found that you couldn't run the latest version of your favourite apps, dump it and buy a new one as you couldn't upgrade the operating system to the required standard.
    Is it necessary to abide by this designed-in obsolescence? Beeza inherits an Ipad2 and decides to find out if he can get any serious use out of it or whether it really does need to be dumped.

    The following code snippet was edited for readability.
    #Hold raspberrypi-sys-mods package
    sudo apt-mark hold raspberrypi-sys-mods

    #Redirect calls to packages.microsoft.com to localhost
    sudo echo "0.0.0.0 packages.microsoft.com" >> /etc/hosts

    #remove MS Key file
    sudo rm -vf /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/microsoft.gpg

    #create empty dummy key file
    sudo touch /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/microsoft.gpg

    #lock the dummy key file
    sudo chattr +i /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/microsoft.gpg

    #comment out vscode.list
    sudo sed -i 's/deb/#deb/' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/vscode.list

    #lock the vscode.list file
