@openuk why not put a link in the post, rather than embedded in an image?

@bigcalm you could probably buy and Ender 3 v1 pro for that much and have a little change.

Google announced that starting in June 2024, ad blockers such as uBlock Origin #uBO will be disabled in Chrome 127 and later with the rollout of Manifest V3 (#Mv3).

The new #Chrome manifest will prevent using custom filters and stops on demand updates of blocklist. Only #Google authorized updates to browser extension will be allowed in the future, which mean an automatic win for Google in their battle to stop YouTube #AdBlockers .

#ManifestV3 is deceitful and threatening to your privacy, and now is a good time to switch to #Firefox (@mozilla) and/or #TorBrowser (@torproject) if you haven't done so already!

EDIT for clarification: MV3 in Chrome will still allow some ad blocking extensions, but will severely limit their blocking ability and even restricts pre-set filters to 50 MAX.

@tomasv yeh, I was also thinking to say a short blog post or message. I'd certainly be interested to hear some of the little bits which could be starting points.

A hashtag to link them would be smart.

Was going to say the wiki, but I doubt that actually gets looked at.

That's 500 tickets sold! We still have plenty of seats left, but don't wait too long if you want to be sure you get one!


Training sessions are also selling fast! 2 sessions sold out, and 1 almost!

Two years since the new version of google icons and the struggle is still real

@dick_turpin sounds like the opposite role to someone whom should have financial responsibility. So its presumably the SBF role.

This is a short message from the openSUSE Board that we are posting on our communication channels and is a reminder that we ask each and every one of you to be kind, considerate and welcoming to people on all our communication channels. Let's foster a positive atmosphere for people on all of our communication channels. Our channels are a wonderful place for collaboration, but also remember that open-source is not about telling others what or how to build.

The enshittification of the Internet coincides with the economic shift to mandatory infinite growth so shareholders and CEOs can receive ever more absurd payouts at the expense of sustainable business. This led to increasing commoditization of our time, our data, and our attention. We're not the customers, we're the product.

Which also coincides with the democratic breakdown of treating voters not as decision makers but as a captive audience for whatever the political-moneyed class wants to do.

@neil no worries, I wasn't offended in any way.

Like you, I was a little surprised there wasn't something upto date which just worked.

But I guess the market in a lot of cases has shifted to people wanting certificates for liability and thus paying for someone. Or just drop it in the shredder.


Based on the later half of your post I assumed a simple way once you've booted was of use.

Don't know of any truely automated ones other than the ones you've already mentioned. Looks like there is a succesor to DBAN.

If might be able to slip stream a simple script to run on boot of a live bootable USB stick, especially if you know which device it will be.

I would add if it was very sensitive data and an SSD, I'd stick it through a shredder.

Woop woop! @l_avrot and I will be premiering our Barbie talk at PGConf.EU in Prague this December. This is going to be fun (and informative, and a call for action, but mainly fun 😉)
