"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

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

And it's true.

I am lucky.

And I did send money to "Bob".

How do you explain that?

I can't.

[And I also hate character-limits. WTF? How does this 1/2/3 thing help anyone? What is the point other than copying the bird-site which only had a character limit coz of being an SMS app originally? This is bullshit. When I start my own instance it will be because of the stupid character limit]

We need some feedback on how we should implement per-account settings. We would really appreciate it if you had a look at the github issue and tell us what you think: github.com/tuskyapp/Tusky/issu #tuskydev

"LyricsPoster" is a neat #OpenSource web app that lets you recreate a photo with text (designed for lyrics, but you can use any text). Here's a photo of my cat Penelope recreated using text from an upcoming blog post. lyricsposter.net/ t.co/NU29PdZBZy

I need a 'lite' CS:GO where it's not 16GB of space, but just the env that I prefer to play (offline, with bots, a few maps).

It's been a little while since we've had the time to publish an update on the #Librem5. So, we present progress report 15. Apologies for the delay.

There should be a global 'awareness' week for developers. For a week reduce your RAM to 2 GB, disable all cores except 2, downscale your resolution to 1366x768 and cap your internet at 1 Mbps (or less for mobile developers)...

Maybe, just maybe we will start to have less crappy, bloated software.

That'll do nicely.

#Blender gets all their videos blocked worldwide by #YouTube. #Armory3D has their #Patreon page closed down and their backers refunded without any notice as to why. All the #FOSS projects hosted by #GitHub now have their hosting at the mercy of #Microsoft.

And this is just a few of the recent examples.

When is the #FOSS community going to learn that we need to create and run our own infrastructure as well as apps?

Support #decentralised #FOSS infrastructure! (eg #PeerTube, #tilt, #Gitea etc)

So #Apple is killing their last notebook with "legacy"-ports. Cool, I wonder how many people already had to connect a #USB-C stick or USB-C mouse to their cool new #MacBook. Sure USB-C is nice and all, but I want at least one "legacy" port, so I don't have to carry a dongle all the time, because 90% of the industry didn't just switch.

then you read this from an activist re using facebook:

“I don’t think I’d ever change the way we operate our groups. There’s too much information there already. If someone wants to go back five years and have a look at what was going on in these groups five years ago, they could do that,”

well then ur gonna get pwned repeatedly
