"Fennec F-Droid, which is F-Droid’s unbranded Firefox build, updated to v60, finally bringing all Firefox quantum improvements to android.

By the way, several people told us they find the icon ugly. Think you can do better? Here’s your chance! Send us a new design, and we might make it the official new Fennec F-Droid icon!" according to the latest TWiF @fdroidorg

@kev
Weird that you couldn't downgrade, but at least the workaround worked.

An operating system that does this currently dominates the desktop market. Let that sink in.

SoundCloud has a social media component that's kind of useless. They should do ActivityPub...

ICANN granted Amazon.com the domain '.amazon' today, rather than the entire geographic region of the Amazon Basin.

Acts like this are colonial, obviously, but also a slap in the face to early internet promises of global representation + shared power. Its really sad.

So our entire organisation will use Linux Mint as of Monday. But.. we still have three Mac computers left from the days of us not having an IT department and users being able to demand whatever they felt 'necessary.'

What should I do with them? See if I can put Linux Mint on there or just leave them be and figure out how to manage them via Ansible? Is there any way to tie their authentication into FreeIPA?

I’m having a deja vu. I’ve seen this post before! Sometimes, duplicates are a good idea. Like data backups. Deja Dup is a handy tool, with support for local, remote and cloud locations, scheduling and desktop integration.

McDonalds stopped selling milkshakes in the UK so that their products don’t get thrown at fascists. The next step is obvious. Throw Big Macs at fascists. Throw every McDonalds food item at fascists and they will go out of business in a week.

Really enjoying my new installation. It might look like a normal Windows 10 desktop but it's actually with the wallpaper and menu button changed. Not shown here but the notifications are moved from top right to bottom right and I've added the ability to to scroll with a single finger.

Hey friends, since I have almost no friends on Mastodon, promo me and help me find people.

I'm a furry artist and musician who's into programming, and video games. My tastes are very eclectic so I'm into most things.

Earlier today, the #WordOfTheDay had an image with an attempt at an ancient apothecary pot combined with a clipart of a modern pill bottle made a while ago.

I rushed, not paying attention to how the pot was almost straight on while the pill bottle was seen more from above.

I won't edit the original post, something I try to do right away, not hours later.

Inkscape is great for letting me adjust details without needing a complete remake.

I published a beta release that fixes the issue with the fetch more button. It prevents holes in the home timeline after inactivity.

It also fixes an issue with sensitive media and boosts.

You can now follow #GNUSocial instances.

The cash registers at this market in Linz (Spar) keep making beeps that sound like my laptop when I adjust volume (in GNOME). 🔊

realisation: laugh tracks in TV sitcoms are like floppy disk icons on save buttons in software - an artifact of a time when things worked significantly differently than they do nowadays

@feld yeah, that's not a problem. I'm happy we (fedi) have the mindshare by now that people will actually notice that there is an alternative.

I published a new version of the app (1.80.3)

What's new:

- Long press on the fetch more button will retrieve all missing statuses.
- Long press on media in timelines will automatically download them in full resolution (also works for videos)
- You can add a Peertube video in your favorites for Pleroma and Mastodon accounts.

I also fixed bugs that you reported.

@Tutanota I do have a question. I understand that you can automatically encrypt and decrypt emails between Tutanota addresses. However you aren't the only player that does this, there's at least @protonmail that I know of (and you'll probably know of more in the same trade). But are you talking amongst each other about automatically (and standardising) encrypting messages between all players? That would really make a push towards encrypted emails by default.
