    Been using it for a pet project for about a week and loving it! I’m a huge fan of “write less”

      There’s millions if java developers?

        Nice reminder. Another related stackoverflow I found after reading is also worth checking out: https://stackoverflow.com/a/401684/2199393

          As it stands I trust this significantly less than Cloudflare and Google. There is no privacy policy on the website and there is no mention of any legal entity behind the service so, if you use it, you

          1. have no idea what they do with your data (and remember, persistent SSL cookies means that if you use DoH, then you can be tracked across networks!)
          2. have no idea who to hold responsible for infringements on your privacy.
          1. 3

            We have added a privacy section to the DNS webpage, because indeed it could be difficult for people to extract than information from our generic terms page.

            1. 3

              I wouldn’t trust google with my data no matter what privacy policy they would be claiming. In the end those policies dont mean much. Better use common sense and instincts. These guys seems to me to be small scale in the “fed up with big corp” departement. At least for now ;)

              1. 2

                There is no privacy policy on the website

                I was also looking and found this.

                1. 2

                  Yes, I saw that as well, but discounted it as it’s on a separate website and

                  • there is no mention of when those terms were last updated and
                  • there is no mention of who controls these services so there is no one to hold liable for any violation of those terms.

                  EDIT: I’m sure the (AFAICT 3) people running this service are well-intentioned, but my point is that, unless you personally know these people, then you can trust them about as much as you can trust 3 randos coming up to you in public to offer you free candy.

                if folks here are annoyed at Google policies, maybe, they should use Firefox more. If Mozilla, who is right now the only major vendor shipping a browser which is not in the webkit/blink familly tree, get more user then it accrues more leverage in political matters. You may not agree with all that Mozilla does but it is better to have a fairer playing ground by helping to strength the small players, than allow Google monopoly to keep going forever.

                  Well said! I just can’t understand IT people (ie my colegues at work) who use chrome when firefox is just asgood and far away from sucking up all the private data. It should be obvious to everyone now that chrome no longer performs better, that it’s just a bad choise

                1. 3

                  Wow, a lot of stuff there I didn’t know about. Great site

                  1. 3

                    Please read the other comments. There’s lots of stuff but also lots of bad stuff.

                    1. 3

                      I did. Still in todays world where you can’t really trust any company with your data, and it’s only getting worse, I belive it’s better too be a bit paranoid than naive. Though I use firefox on all my devices it pains me that they are phoning home by default etc. It shouldn’t be like that

                  1. 3

                    Just have your clients reconnect every 10 minutes or so?

                    1. 2

                      Just restart whichever server has the highest load every 10 minutes. Solves memory leaks too.

                      1. 1

                        Or listen to a certain response from the server and only then reconnect. That way you only need to reconnect on demand. Still this is a hackish kind of way to “solve” the problem

                      1. 3

                        I’ve been thinging about how to technically implement “Direct Democracy”. In 2019 with all the tech available and everyone on the net citizens show be able to more directly participate. No easy task, technically, legally, securely or politically, but POSSIBLE

                          1. 1

                            ..uh, so thinkin google inc are hypocrits by doing this while they track all the world themselves and are obliged by us law to give info to the government makes me a troll?

                            1. 1

                              No, it’s because your original comment did not contain any content. (Also, that should have been “me-too” - see the list of flags).

                              Try to contribute content that isn’t me-too agreement. An explanation of more than one word would’ve helped.
