If you put your illegal files into a folder labeled "NSFW", the police won't be able to access them, because the officers are at work while doing that

Oh I am too, despite still using way too much proprietary stuff. 😉 I drive my friends and family nuts sometimes, but managed to get everyone I talk to on a regular basis to at least switch to Signal.

The new CLOUD Act is a privacy intrusion that enables US authorities to request any data stored by American companies - even when stored on European servers. Stop using #Gmail, #Yahoo, #Outlook or any US email service. Switch now to keep your emails safe!

I guess NextCloud, you can host mail on NextCloud too, right?

I'm more than willing to pay for privacy respecting services, I already pay for Fastmail, Tutanota, and for 2 (well researched) VPNs. I'll take all of that into consideration if I do go ahead with an external NextCloud provider. Thanks!

@h3artbl33d
That would be awesome!!! What kind of machine would I need? You mentioned raspberry pi but that it may not be powerful enough?

@h3artbl33d
I think I'm going to start using my Tutanota account more though, would probably be better for financial stuff too haha
@starbreaker

@h3artbl33d
I do have a Tutanota account, but don't use it except for really sensitive communication with friends/family or political/activism mailing lists.

@h3artbl33d
I've been looking at their site, it looks like they have providers who will host your data and who encrypt it too. I know running your own server is best, but I don't think I have the know-how for that at the moment, or a machine to do so with. I'd like to learn eventually though.

I've read about NextCloud some, haven't looked into it yet though. Do you know if they have the capability to share calendars? And would allow the other person to add one to their Google calendar? I share two separate calendars with two separate people, and I know neither of them will switch away from Google. 🙄

I switched to Fastmail a couple years ago, but couldn't let go of gmail. I'm also using an unmodified Android so I unfortunately can't 100% kill my Google account yet. :blobpats:

I'm getting so many emails about TOS and privacy policy updates lately...
