Our CEO just referred to SaaS as "Software as a hostage" and I think that's pretty spot on.

The lightning android browser already does this. However, when the url is highlighted (double tap), the full url is shown.

Thanks, I'll dive deeper later. If its doable without fedora all the better!

Now that Lenovo has redhat support, would this setting be available in fedora I wonder?

Thank you. Learning more each day.
Looks like I've some work to on at least 3 laptops!

So you have a server at home, and you're on the road. You find that your server is offline, but nobody is at home to troubleshoot. Your modem, router, or server probably just need to be rebooted, but because your server is down, you can't remote in to trigger a reboot.

How do people solve this problem?

Calibre plugin may help - not sure if it'd be legal...

so lets say systemd did something so bad you could not feel right using any systemd distro anymore

which non systemd distro would you use and why?

Artix - give choice of init: runit, openrc & s6 (arch)
Antixlinux - solid, been around a while (debian)
Obarun - s6 init
Most slackware distros
Gentoo/funtoo & calculate Linux - openrc - solid
Void Linux
Nutyx (an interesting French distro)
I've used all at some stage, solid and dependable: calculate Linux, antixlinux & slackware.
Enjoy the journey 🙂

Just to be clear: The ruling *absolutely* changes your ability to transfer data between the EU and U.S. using MS services. Giving any US citizen access to private data of EU citizens is illegal now under the #GDPR.

I just saw this. Their website host shut down their website.


“ WOW: Our website host @Squarespace has just completely and arbitrarily shut down our website, claiming a violation of their terms of service.

We are a group of physicians advocating for a better understanding of COVID-19 and its available treatment options.

This is outrageous.”

“We examined more than 15,000 recent popular queries and found that Google devoted 41 percent of the first page of search results on mobile devices to its own properties and what it calls ‘direct answers,’ which are populated with information copied from other sources, sometimes without their knowledge or consent.”

I've been using ProXPN for a couple years now because I picked up a lifetime subscription for pretty cheap. Today when I went to connect it just flat out didn't work. I tried to check their site to see if there was some issue with the service I didn't already know about (I already know about a LOT of them since their service is pretty much garbage), and I find their "knowledge base" is erroring out and their Twitter account has been suspended.

Short story long, any recommendations on a VPN?
