Hey, fedi!

I'd like to write a blog/gemlog post about positive experiences from open source contributions. And by that I mean I want to hear your stories, and publish them as CC0 along with my own :)

Bring it on! (Boosts are of course welcome)

Even if I wanted to buy one, they are not available to me being in Australia!

You: "Which of these platforms should we develop on?"
Me: "They're about equal; you can't go right with any of them."
You: "They aren't the best?"
Me: "They're the best. They just aren't good. There aren't any that are good."

This is only part of what's going on. This has all been planned, because the overall outcome is a one world Govt, (see world economic Forum). Authoritarian Govt's "for the greater good" is the start of tyranny.

Majority of the European Parliament welcomes the Commission's intention to oblige e-mail, messaging and chat providers to search all private messages for allegedly illegal material and report to the police (#chatcontrol) by 580:76:37.

Stupid answer, you read that in the media.
I'd suggest you fact check the reports from India. It's not all as it seems.

Time for another biased poll.

Do you know what CC and BCC stand for in eMail without having to look it up?

I would appreciate it if you boosted this toot. :-)

Postmarketos uses alpine as its base. Work well on the pinephone.

Curious, if no-one had told you & the media nor govt not mentioned Covid, would you have noticed it?

@Alastair @mike I have one for personal/family, and one for business. I also have one for techie development. And yes, long term not really an option but you do get used to it!

@tychosoft @Alastair @mike Fortunately I live in the land Down Under and quite a few here have 2 phones, one for person and one for business.

It's a fairly new characteristic of Ubuntu (only, that I'm aware of) and it can't be switched off, only delayed!

I have a Linux phone (pinephone) that I use regularly. I also have a rooted Android (lineageos) phone & tablet tethered for apps that aren't on Linux mobile, or not fully functional. It works for me 😁

Looks like birdie won't work on postmarketos as it doesn't use systemd!

Can someone make into and outro music for #AnarchoBookClub that sounds like the theme for MacGyver sort of? Same type of sound? I think I am not able to do this on my own.

Contact me to discuss terms. 😃
(boosts welcome)

Have a look on the lineageos download page, gives an idea as to phones supported. From experience, Sony & newer Moto have good battery. Leave Nokia - pain to unlock ($10).

HI :linux: boosted

As my phone is dying from some kind of flexing (caused by long time heavy use) i need another one, but i do not know which one.

- dual SIM

Not necessary:
- good camera
- fancy display features

Every hint is highly appreciated. Please feel free to boost. #followerpower

Did you know that I have a Bitcoin wallet address that you can donate to? If you appreciate my work and want to give me a thanks you can donate some BTC to this address:


I'd advise other creators to also start taking donations in crypto since it's so convenient and is censorship resistant
