Oh it worked!

"#Linux is my creative work daily driver, on 95% #libre and #FOSS tools. A few years ago it was the opposite, I was on 95% proprietary tools. It is often said that you cannot be on Linux if you do #creative work for a living, but I have transitioned across the last few years and love it. With the advances in #librecreative software the workflows just keep getting better and better. This collection shows some snapshots of my setup and how I use it."

#UntrackMe 1.11.0 will allow to customize #Invidious URLs so that you can change some settings (theme, thin mode, language, volume, etc.).

You can also force to remove parameters. If you set a custom setting, it will be added if it was not in the URL, otherwise its value will be changed.

There are a lot of new strings to translate 🙃: crowdin.com/project/nitterizem (thanks)

There are different ways of beating Internet censorship. Some protect you from surveillance, but many do not. The circumvention tool that is best for you depends on your threat model. ssd.eff.org/en/module/how-circ

When ISPs or governments block access to Tor, our users rely on bridges to connect. With BridgeDB, we tackle the problem of how to get bridges to censored users while making it difficult for censors to get all bridges.

BridgeDB version 0.10.1 is out now: blog.torproject.org/new-releas

Survey time! On what platform(s) do you use LibreOffice?

That's how the Librem 5 performs with all the GPU acceleration in place :) @purism #librem5 #phosh

just some food for thoughts:

You've heard about the PinePhone?
"An Open Source Smart Phone Supported by All Major Linux Phone Projects"
pine64.org/pinephone/

It can also run on debian based distros.

Two examples:
wiki.pine64.org/index.php/Pine
gitlab.com/a-wai/debos-pinepho

Bringing Tails or a Tails like distro into the mobile world, that's a good dream hoping to become reality.
