@switchingsocial I was thinking I may try and put together a little plugin for WordPress to try and sniff out google fonts and other known trackers. If they are using WordPress hooks to add them.

@jalcine esp. the ones that buy a $50 theme, tinker with it, then sell it as an original design.

Too much power in the hands of just a few tech platforms threatens democracy! #decentralization

Got some new 2 Noir videos to upload today. These videos are only trimmed either side. No editing in the video itself as I don’t know how to yet. 😬

@switchingsocial Do you count Google Fonts as trackers? (I do - I put all Google products in the same boat)

Hello WordPress users,

Do you know sources of good privacy-friendly themes for WordPress? (i.e. without any trackers)

(It's possible to remove trackers manually, but this is a request for themes that respect privacy by default.)

#WordPress #Privacy

Time to remove them pesky Google asset links that my theme has.

The video I was watching is called:

"Chris Coyier - The All Powerful Front End Developer".

I wont link here as it's a YouTube video. Search for it if you would like to see it.


Watching a video about#JAMStack. JAMStack : A.K.A. stick logic code on someone else's server and use third parties (Usually Surveillance Capitalist companies) to do certain tasks.

Chris Coyier is a super nice guy who I've always respected. But I'm disappointed that he, along with many other devs, still recommend Google-based products as part of people's infrastructure.

People in positions of influence need to wake up. I know it's hard not to rely on big companies in modern web dev, but still.

⚠️ Federation Update ⚠️

We have identified several issues with remote following and the network timeline. The issues require significant refactoring and will take some time.

In the current state, we do not feel full federation meets the standards of the community.

We are delaying the release until May 17th or later.


Hey Fediverse,

Can you suggest environmental / green /ecological themed instances?

Re-publishing the remaining posts of mine that got set to draft when I migrated ages ago.

71 left to go...

Currently uploading Part 3 of my Resident Evil 2 Noir Hardcore play through.
