What's your go to bootloader?
I've had enough of grub. I have 5 linuxes installed & not one grub instance can boot all the other 4 without some kind of manual config intervention.
Suggestions on alternative & why, thanks

Today I'm starting a new Freedom Project.
Four projects under one roof.
First, a secure OS to run from USB for doing "internet stuff annonymusly".
Same OS to run on mobile phone - pinephone to start with.
A secure (as is possible) mobile NAS for the home/office
A mobile webserver.
And a maybe a fifth of a universal mesh network protocol for a private (as not in the hands of large corps) interent.
Exciting times.

If you are still on @mobian bullseye , be aware that we decided to not support this distro anymore, and newer things (gnome-* 41) won't make it to your device. Do upgrade to the 'bookworm' repository, using the repositories described in our blog post.
(And a concise how-to-upgrade post will be published soonish)

VC guys keep trying to make cryptocurrency a global standard by spending billions to invent less-attractive versions of Bitcoin, instead of just buying payment-system companies to make the most common cash registers and apps support crypto payments by default.

Pro-gamer move.

With respect, the docs say the "sequencer nodes" save the hashes (identifiers) produced by scanning people's eyes to your database.

Apple does not, IIRC, catalog raw bio hashes—they're encrypted on-device (via enclave).

The result of Worldcoin's "Phase 1" is an eyeball catalog. t.co/2Xejiai38A t.co/0sRhcXhEJs

Anyone a CSS/Javascript expert able to do simple things fast w/only #FOSS? We need to spruce up our site quickly. We've got the Django parts but need someone w/great CSS/Javascript skills to work with us on it. Ideally, you'd have 2 days of contractor time over the next week...

Is it just me that has plasma crashes on KDE (gentoo & artix), & dolphin not starting?

Looks like I'll be moving back to xfce...

➡️ @mobian - Mobile version of Debian Linux

➡️ @postmarketOS - Mobile version of Alpine Linux

➡️ @ubports - Mobile version of Ubuntu Linux

➡️ @plasmamobile - FOSS smartphone interface developed by @kde

Probably the easiest option right now is buying a PinePhone or an /e/ degooglised phone, as they have their OSes preinstalled.

However, all these projects deserve support so that alternative phones can become as functional and as easy to use as possible.

90+ policy and rights groups around the world wrote @Tim_Cook today to warn @Apple that releasing its new, universally-condemned #spyPhone update "will have laid the foundation for censorship, surveillance and persecution on a global basis."

Apparently #Wire wants to #free its product from #Google to bring it to #FDroid and they're "looking for a contractor who can handle an older scala codebase, and has experience around app notification processes".

@Gargron There's some kind of issue that we've been running into with a particular user on a particular instance. bob at epicyon.freedombone.net generates an Internal Server error just trying to look at his profile. When people follow him, it causes issues with their Home timeline or their notifications if he's interacted with one of their Toots. I'd put an issue in on Github, but I don't have more details. I thought maybe you'd want to look at it while it's in progress.
