Özgür blog kurmak isteyenlere duyurulur... Test eden olursa geribildirimden mutlu olurum.


I said I'd do it, I finally found the time today (with some hangover)

Just shared a tutorial post for creating a Hugo blog on Gitlab... It's in Turkish (as there are so many others in English). I haven't tested the tutorial so I've asked friends to give it a try... any feedback is welcome.

Viva Free Software!

@xmpp has mentioned of my article on this months newsletter 😊

feeling honored, humbled and most of all happy to have contributed to xmpp and free software (with no coding skills whatsover 😊)

ps: i figured i'd write my article in turkish because there is so much information in english already out there. im told google translate isnt too bad but if anyone would like to translate, id be more than happy to assist 💫

thank you @xmpp 💫💫

Feeling dizzy with how Proust is so intricately describing envy...

Signal's iOS app seems licensed under GPL. I thought you couldn't get that into the fruit-store?

To this age (almost 45), I've had no allergies that I know of. Ever since the beginning of this year, I can barely sleep due to shortness of breath and coughing in the middle of the night. Still have no clue why this is happening, but I am wondering if it's a side effect of the 2 Biontech shots I took...

@douginamug Not an answer, but Whatsapp and Element are basically on the same side of the spectrum. Yes Element is open source and in theory uses an open protocol, but it's still a giant VC company that built its supposedly open protocol as a way to shut down other open protocols and then only created a "foundation" to manage it later after a lot of criticism (and the foundation is controlled by all the same people who control the company). Anyways, rant over, but I'd stay away from Matrix.

I'm wondering; is there an open hardware phone that can run a recent and free Android OS? At least until I can daily drive a Linux phone?

I am pleased to announce that #ThisWeekInGNOME is having its first anniversary! There has never been that many news as this week in the whole year!

#52 Happy Birthday!


Nice little website for some FLOSS alternatives to propitiatory software...

Newcomers to 'free software,' have a look if you haven't seen it before.

In his book "Dead Man's Chest," Nicholas Rankin mentions that it may not be a coincidence that the letter "I" of the alphabet is between the "H" of Hyde and "J" of Jekyll...*

I found this beautiful...

I sell coreboot, and coreboot accessories. With Debian Linux. These are secure machines, and coreboot is well-audited.

These computers are free as in freedom, right down to the boot firmware, booting linux/bsd on the bare metal:

My web shop is here:

I'm the author of osboot, the version of coreboot that comes installed. It replaces proprietary UEFI firmware, and has many advanced features that you can learn about here:

Trying to figure out if and how i can set-up a home server on an SBC for my family of 10 to use...
Ill be needing it to run;
- Nexcloud server
- Xmpp server
- Mastadon instance
- A static web page
- Mail server (with calendar and phone book)
- Maybe a media server to stream my home videos...

I would prefer to use full free hardware, but wouldnt mind going with a raspberry if no other option.

Any configuration / brand of SBC anyone would recommend would be very helpful. Thanks in advance : )

It's been a whole year since I started using Linux. After the first three months, it's always been my daily driver! Apart from my two CAD apps and wireless driver I've only been using free software. I can't say I know much around CLI, but it wasn't too often I needed it. I'm very comfortable with the desktop experience. There have been 1 or 2 occasions where I missed some prop. software functions but apart from those, I got all I needed! Thank you everyone for making free software possible!

You probably heard of #OsmAnd, the swiss knife map app that uses #OpenStreetMap data, but do you know that there's a web-based interface, too?

Check out, and plan your trips with routing, and various map rendering options, while doing so in the comfort of your desktop browser.

It even includes weather forecasts, if you're trying to avoid getting wet for your weekend ride.

You don't even need to register for an #OsmAnd, or #OpenStreetMap account to use it.

Anyone know any FLOSS Android app(s) to view Gitlab repos?

Man, fuck proprietary software.

My work computer gets (no joke!) from 100 to 0% battery in a little over 2 hours on Windows when I have a MS Teams conference. Depending on what kind of meeting (or back-to-back meetings) I have on the day, this scenario can happen frequently.

Yesterday I unlocked the BIOS and booted on it via a pendrive.

5, almost 6 hours of work including installing things and watching videos and it's still standing.

is just better!
