IMO if you’re starting with your project is understandable, they seem to have a shit ton of money put on it, thought, so that may make it a bit unforgivable, but things can change.


Yeah, the Web3 shit is a bit fishy but maybe they are doing it because it attracks customers, the IPFS thing is a nice addition although the MetaMask shit is not, ultimately, if they provide a good and free e-mail service and the rest does not interfere I am good with it though.

Regarding the PDF thing I think that is optional for inputting it, since I was able to copy the code to my password manager.


Is this a bittorrent client or for a tracker web site?



Low Disk Space on “boot”
So I've been trying to update/upgrade my system/applications for the last few days and it has been erroring, I ignored it and now when I try to `sudo apt upgrade` it tells me that I have "Low Disk Space on "boot" The volume "boot" has only 0 bytes disk space remaining." What happens when I run `sudo apt upgrade`: ``` user@user:~$ sudo apt upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Calculating upgrade...

Yay, another place where we can spread Western propaganda against non-Western nations!

Setting the precedent

Let’s say that regardless of the copious reasons why this is a bad idea, we still decide that the trade-offs are worth it and we pressure phone and app makers to introduce a backdoor into their products. Soon, other countries will want this level of access too. If you’re an anglophonic person, you may be okay with the notion of Western nations having access to those tools but once again the question is where we draw the line. Should we give access to this backdoor to Turkey, who has historically been a reliable Western ally but has recently taken interest in oppressing the very Kurds that Unites States supported in the fight against w:Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant? Do we give it to China to spy on Uyghur Muslims and place them in w:Xinjiang detention camps? Parties like China already heavily control and often outright ban Western companies’ operations in China, refusal to share this access would be the end of their China operations.

How confident are we that your average tech CEO focused on the next quarterly report would have the moral fortitude to stand up to China?

The wiki has barely any articles and yet we already have shit taken against the East as if Western countries would have the slightest degree of freedom or humanity.

If you’re an anglophonic person, you may be okay with the notion of Western nations having access to those tools but once again the question is where we draw the line.

This sentence in particular is fucking ridiculous and so anglocentrist it makes me puke.


I’m okay with fair criticism about China particularly when it comes to privacy, but this shit seems like a place to spread Western culture as the highest stage of civilization and regard everything else as Orwellian monoliths even though anglophonic nations and their allies have the biggest surveillance system. I like the idea of the wiki, but I know how it will end.


Yeah, I will try to help with what I can tomorrow but it is not much since I only have like 25-50GB free right now, but well something is something.

@dessalines@lemmy.ml what do you think about stickying it?


***This is a [Reddit post](https://www.reddit.com/r/DataHoarder/comments/nc27fv/rescue_mission_for_scihub_and_open_science_we_are/), not my own work.*** ---- **Rescue Mission Links** * Quick start to rescuing Sci-Hub: Download 1 random torrent (100GB) from the [scimag collection](http://libgen.rs/scimag/repository_torrent/) and download it. Seed forever. * [Mission Success Tracker](https://phillm.net/libgen-stats-table.php), thanks to phillm * Contribute to open source Sci-Hub projects: [freereadorg/awesome-libgen](https://github.com/freereadorg/awesome-libgen) * Join /r/scihub to stay up to date # A Rescue Mission for Sci-Hub and Open Science Elsevier and the USDOJ have declared war against Sci-Hub and open science. The era of Sci-Hub and Alexandra standing alone in this fight must end. We have to take a stand with her. On May 7th, Sci-Hub's Alexandra Elbakyan [revealed](https://twitter.com/ringo_ring/status/1390782451140767749) that the FBI has been wiretapping her accounts for over 2 years. This news comes after Twitter [silenced the official Sci\_Hub](https://www.theverge.com/2021/1/8/22220738/twitter-sci-hub-suspended-indian-court-case) twitter account because Indian academics were organizing on it against Elsevier. Sci-Hub itself is currently frozen and has not downloaded any new articles since December 2020. This rescue mission is focused on seeding the article collection in order to prepare for a potential Sci-Hub shutdown. [Alexandra Elbakyan](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexandra_Elbakyan) of Sci-Hub, bookwarrior of [Library Genesis](https://libgen.fun/), [Aaron Swartz](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aaron_Swartz), and countless unnamed others have fought to free science from the grips of for-profit publishers. Today, they do it working in hiding, alone, without acknowledgment, in fear of imprisonment, and even now wiretapped by the FBI. They sacrifice everything for one vision: Open Science. Why do they do it? They do it so that humble scholars on the other side of the planet can practice medicine, create science, fight for democracy, teach, and learn. People like Alexandra Elbakyan would give up their personal freedom for that one goal: to free knowledge. For that, Elsevier Corp (RELX, market cap: 50 billion) wants to silence her, wants to see her in prison, and wants to shut Sci-Hub down. It's time we sent Elsevier and the USDOJ a clearer message about the fate of Sci-Hub and open science: we are the library, we do not get silenced, we do not shut down our computers, and we are many. # Rescue Mission for Sci-Hub If you have been following the story, then you know that this is not our first rescue mission. * [We protected the Library Genesis book collection](https://www.vice.com/en/article/pa7jxb/archivists-are-trying-to-make-sure-a-pirate-bay-of-science-never-goes-down) * [We unlocked over 5,000 COVID-19 research articles](https://www.vice.com/en/article/z3b3v5/archivists-are-bypassing-paywalls-to-share-studies-about-coronaviruses) * [We successfully petitioned publishers to unlock their COVID-19 paywalls](https://www.reddit.com/r/Coronavirus/comments/feo68j/humanity_wins_our_fight_to_unlock_32544_covid19/) * bookwarrior, the *founder* of Library Genesis, took his library [onto the de-centralized and un-censorable IPFS web](http://libgen.fun/) * Next? Make Sci-Hub un-censorable too. # Rescue Target A handful of Library Genesis seeders are currently seeding the Sci-Hub torrents. There are [850 scihub torrents](http://libgen.rs/scimag/repository_torrent/), each containing 100,000 scientific articles, to a total of 85 million scientific articles: 77TB. This is the complete Sci-Hub database. We need to protect this. # Rescue Team **Wave 1:** We need **85 datahoarders** to store and seed 1TB of articles each, 10 torrents in total. Download 10 [random](https://www.random.org/integers/?num=10&min=100&max=850&col=1&base=10&format=html&rnd=new) torrents from the [scimag collection](http://libgen.rs/scimag/repository_torrent/), then load the torrents onto your client and seed for as long as you can. The articles are coded by DOI and in zip files. **Wave 2:** Reach out to **10 good friends** to ask them to grab just 1 random torrent (100GB). That's 8,500 seeders. We are now the library. **Final Wave:** Development for an open source Sci-Hub. [freereadorg/awesome-libgen](https://github.com/freereadorg/awesome-libgen) is a collection of open source achievements based on the Sci-Hub and Library Genesis databases. Open source de-centralization of Sci-Hub is the ultimate goal here, and this begins with the data, but it is going to take years of developer sweat to carry these libraries into the future. Heartfelt thanks to the /r/datahoarder and /r/seedboxes communities, [seedbox.io](https://seedbox.io/) and [NFOrce](https://www.nforce.com/) for your support for previous missions and your love for science.

List of libre software I would love to exist
##### Disclaimer: I know that being a developer is hard, I'm not trying to say that people should start doing these ideas to please my desires. I just thought it was fun to have a list of ideas that could improve the libre software community and these are some of them that I would really love to see. If you have some other Ideas contribute as well, and if you are a developer and you are looking for something to do but don't know what, you may gain some inspiration from here. ---- **Projects that do not exist:** - Libre and privacy respecting alternative to DeepL. *Details: I know there are already some libre translators, but I will not stop using DeepL until there's something as good as it.* - Libre and privacy respecting alternative to [Genius](https://genius.com/). *Details: It's a website where users create community based lyrics for their favourite artists and can create annotations and add metadata.* - ~~Libre and privacy respecting alternative to Goodreads. *Details: It's a website where you keep a log of what you've read, what you want to read and what you are reading, you can also rate books.*~~ [Here](https://github.com/mouse-reeve/bookwyrm) is an alternative. - Libre and privacy respecting alternative to Grammarly. *Details: It's a set of applications or add-ons that help you with typos and it will improve your text.* - Libre and privacy respecting alternative to Letterboxd. *Details: t's a website where you keep a log of what you've seen and what you want to see, you can also rate movies and TV shows.* - Libre and privacy respecting alternative to Pixabay. *Details: It's a website where you can get images to use without copyright restrictions. I know CC has a website for this but their content is really poor.* - ~~Libre and privacy respecting alternative to Push notifications.~~ [Here](https://github.com/gotify) is an alternative. - Libre and privacy respecting alternative to ReCaptcha. - Libre and privacy respecting alternative to Shazam. *Details: It's an application that tells you what you are listening if you let it listen to it* - Libre and privacy respecting alternative to Unsplash. *Details: It's a website where you can upload and use photos of people that are licensed under a license that allows for use under most circumstances for free.* - Libre and privacy respecting mouse gesture and ~~radial menu~~ to an operative system level. *Similar to [Gesturefy](https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/gesturefy/) and ~~[CompassMenu](https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/compass_menu)~~ but in a way that it can work in any application. Look [this](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AItTqnTsVjA) video for more details since this is probably a really deep and hard to explain topic. [Here](https://github.com/Schneegans/Fly-Pie/) is an alternative for the radial menu. - Libre and privacy respecting website where to upload and download 3D models licensed under a CC. - Libre and privacy respecting website where to play a lot of different card games. *Details: Similar to Lichess. I am satisfied if you only can play poker until it gains some traction.* - Fully libre and privacy respecting alternative to [Xayn](https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.xayn.search&hl=en_US&gl=US). *Details: It's an application that recommends you articles based on the input you give to the algorithm. Some of its [code](https://github.com/xaynetwork/xaynet) it's liberated on GitHub, but not all of it.* - Libre , decentralized and privacy respecting alternative to Imgur. *Details: It would be great if this could work along the fediverse, for example people would host images there instead of here on Lemmy or Mastodon, making these platforms much more lightweight.* - Libre, privacy respecting and not self hostable visual bookmark manager. *Details: There are a few alternatives here and there, maybe, but they are really awful looking and generally you need to self host. I don't know how to self host and it would probably make my machine slower, I would prefer something that someone's alreay hosting. [This](https://github.com/Colllect/Colllect) is exactly like what I'm looking for, but they haven't launched it yet since they don have enough resources, it could die, too, maybe. ---- **Projects that exist but have some issues:** - A set of common android apps. *Details: I know there are a are a lot of basic Android applications to replace the default ones that come with your phone but I feel someone should create a set that align the aesthetics of them to be coherent with each other. I know Tibor Kaputa does this, but in my opinion I would like something that looks a bit more modern and that has more features, since theirs are based around minimalism. For example, the camera application does not have as many options as my default one, etc.* - Libre, privacy respecting, aesthetic and functional map application. *Details: I haven't been able to find a working application to see maps, I generally end up using DDG's in browser map because of this. The only one that worked was one calle Maps which was a fork of a really [good one](https://github.com/mapsme/omim) (but it was filled with proprietary and other [shady stuff](https://github.com/mapsme/omim/issues/85) ) but it stopped working after some time. I mention the aesthetic parts because I want to be able to recommend this to people who wouldn't use it otherwise if it looks like something really "primitive".* - Revive [waifu2x](https://github.com/nagadomi/waifu2x/) as a serious project. *Details: I really love this website, but I really hate the whole idea of the waifu thing, it is misogynous and I feel like unprofessional.* - Libre, privacy respecting and highly customizable home launcher. *Details: I know there are a ton of home launchers for Android, but most of them focus on minimalism or simplicity, I don't want that, I want a super customizable full of features application that can let me do almost anything. The closest to this was [Lawnchair](https://github.com/LawnchairLauncher/Lawnchair) which is dead, luckily [Omega](https://github.com/otakuhqz/Omega) launcher exists now and it looks like it'll be able to achieve this, but it's not there yet.* - Revive [AquaDroid](https://github.com/z3r0c00l-2k/AquaDroid) *Details: It is a really beautiful application but it has some bugs, not so many features and development has halted.*
