Cloudflare creates a tool to help the public shame their ISPs for not implementing BGP security

https://isbgpsafeyet.com/

Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is responsible for looking at all of the available paths that data could travel and picking the best route. Unfortunately, it isn’t secure by default, and there are constantly major internet routing issues due to hijacking etc. ISPs and other major Internet players (Comcast, Sprint, Verizon, and others) would need to implement a system called RPKI. This tool shows large providers who are and are not implementing this security system. Conveniently there’s a post to twitter button to help shame providers into compliance!

OpenJardin is software for the management of a permaculture oriented garden. This software is written by a French developer. While a lot of the interface has been translated into English, some elements are still in French. You’re therefore at an advantage if you are fluent in French and English, particularly as the project’s manual is strictly a French only affair.
