We now have our own Matrix homeserver, and it is running on #RockPro64 hardware just like the rest of our online infrastructure! All our discussion/support channels have been moved to it as their main address.
Did I also mention it's open for user registration? 😊
This is my daily workhorse. Here in Australia its Monday, sometimes it good to live in the future!!
We need to permanently ban the roll out of facial recognition now before it’s too late.

Hey @PixelDroid feedback:
updated to alpha 3 (fdroid) and app force closes everytime. Downgrade fails. Uninstall A3, install A2 works but settings lost. Mobile android 10.
I have #Fedora32 , #linuxmint 19.3, #MXLinx 19.1-ahs and #calculatelinux installed and fully uptodate. Having and irq7 problem booting on all but Calc Linux (booting with OpenRC). Is this a kernal thing or a systemd thing?
I have searched and not much info about.
Ask if you need more info. I'll add more when I have time.
For the Android users of the fediverse, please be careful what wallpaper you set. Apparently setting backgrounds exceeding the color profile android can handle is screwing up phones, in some cases requiring a factory reset.
I'm genuinely surprised there doesn't appear to be a Linux equivalent of Little Snitch for macOS. It's an application firewall that alerts the user when an application makes an outbound network connection and gives the user the ability to allow or deny the connection based on domain, port, duration, and more.
OpenSnitch was supposed to work like this, but it's been discontinued.
Is anyone aware of other projects?

Ouch, it hurts.... 😑
"In response to the closing of many of its global testing locations, Linux Professional Institute (LPI) will offer online testing to candidates.
Online testing requires a quiet, private location, a reliable computer with a camera, and a stable Internet connection. Unfortunately, at this time only the Windows and MacOS operating systems are supported."
