  1. Nginx is an open source web server which can also be used as a reverse proxy, load balancer, mail proxy and HTTP cache. The software was created by Igor Sysoev while he was working at Rambler group in Russia and first publicly released in 2004. A company of the same name was founded in 2011 to provide support and Nginx plus paid software. As of August 2019, Netcraft estimated Nginx served 32 percent of all active websites ranked, ranking it first just above Apache at 29 percent. With recent acquisition by F5 Networks for $670 million Rambler decided that they want some of that money too and declared that Sysoev stole their property. It is known that Rambler itself used that software for the last 15 years and not complained for it being a stolen property. https://www.themoscowtimes.com/2019/12/13/russian-police-raid-us-owned-web-servers-moscow-office-a68606 https://www.zdnet.com/article/russian-police-raid-nginx-moscow-office/ In recent Interview with Sysoev's former boss, found here https://www.ixbt.com/news/2019/12/12/rambler-reshil-prisvoit-vebserver-nginx.html (sorry, only in russian) he told that there was a clause in Sysoev's contract allowing him to develop his software and that Rambler would not have any rights towards it. Creating a big profitable business is a very risky in Russia. It is not the first time when big business was raided and sold for pennies to government or oligarchs, which shows that t is risky dealing business in Russia.
  2. I have an issue on Floatplane site. I think it is a bug. steps i to do reproduce the issue: 1) Open a new tab with a video, don't click on play button 2) Activate VPN (previously i used another VPN provider, but now i use PIA, works with both of them) 3) click play button on the video after that video cannot load. progress circle spins forever. i have to reload the page to enjoy my video. Problem remains the same even when i deactivate VPN connection before hitting the play button between steps 2 and 3. I understand that there's a massive migration is happening right now, and this bug isn't a big deal, just an annoying little bug, so i would hope Floatplane team could look into it in the future.
  3. Because Russian laws are stupid and anti-human
  4. RuTracker is banned in Russia. You can only access it via vpn( God bless pia)
  5. Standalone. It is one of biggest russian companies. even has their own selfdriving taxis currently testing in some cities
  6. Russian "agency to ban everything" even twiited that Tumblr decided to remove porn from website because russia asked them to. Obviously a lie. And they even told today that they started to check if Twitter and Facebook comply with Russian laws. so we might also lose them here.
  7. https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/international/world-news/russian-official-threatens-to-block-google/articleshow/67059089.cms Russia became obsessed with censoring everything. This spring it tried to block popular messenger Telegram, accidentally banning about 20 million IPs from different service providers including AWS, PSN and many others, but due to built-in proxy telegram survived and became even popular. ( old story: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-russia-telegram-ipaddresses/russia-blocks-google-amazon-ip-addresses-in-bid-to-ban-telegram-idUSKBN1HO1WM or here). Later they unban most of those IP, but oficcially telegram is still in ban(though it works perfectly fine). Now the government tries to force Google to accept Russian rules. Google has been fined 700 000 roubles (10 400$), but they understood that it is too insignificant sum to affect Google's position. Currently it is impossible due to Russian Laws to ban search engines, so they decided to change the laws, so it could affect Google. https://www.ft.com/content/cd06a598-f180-11e8-ae55-df4bf40f9d0d in case someone is interested in Russian source on this topic: https://www.interfax.ru/russia/641915
  8. [UPDATE 20 of April] It is now known that real reason behind banning telegram was not the fact that it declined to cooperate with russian government but the fact that Durov is planning to launch his own cryptocurrency (it already gathered more than billion dollars in ICO). Russian government is afraid that it can disrupt the market. Once again i am deeply sorry for providing russian news source, i'll try to post English source as well when i find one: https://www.rbc.ru/technology_and_media/20/04/2018/5ad8c53a9a7947ec8d8c1ed5?from=main
  9. Head of RosKomNadzor said today that he is looking towards banning Facebook as well. All while banks have problem processing transactions, VK(biggest russian social network, read - russian facebook) mostly down. one food store chain out of business etc., etc.
  10. Russian internet publishers got access to the letter from RosKomNadzor to ISPs explaining that they added their own IPs to the list of banned IPs and asked ISPs to unblock them. I don't know if you will be satisfied with Russian source: https://geektimes.ru/company/nag/blog/300073/
  11. Interesting question. I hope not. Durov lives in Dubai and i don't think it has extradition policy with Russia. I would think Russian government would try to assassinate him rather than have a trial.
  12. Telegram developed their encryption in a way that only users engaged in conversation possess encryption keys. Telegram itself can't have access to their logs.
  13. Telegram encription works in a way that even themselves don't have access to conversations. thts the whole their selling point.
