"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.

@switchingsocial looking for something like strava but FOSS and privacy-preserving (ideally, self-hosting instead of posting tracks to someone else's server) - any recommendations? I know there are many apps that record a gpx trail, interested to hear what actually works well in practice. Android for preference
If you have a qnap nas, better switch it to Russian:
"The [ransomware] sample found on C2 checks the locale of the infected NAS for Belarus, Ukraine, or Russia, and exits without doing anything if a match is found." -- true patriotism!
Used to. Got sick of it. Started to work on it to change it. Slowly but steadily. Used to work in an office doing uninspiring things with uninspiring colleagues. Started to freelance, work remotely, moved to another country. The process took about two years, to realize what I want (still in progress, haha), to work on it, little by little every day. Small efforts every day increment into huge changes over long period of time. Just get started. You can definitely have the life you want! :)
Ableism incident in real life, long
Before I go to bed, I want to talk about what I saw earlier. When I was on the bus, a man tried to get on with a wheelchair. He asked the bus driver if he could use the ramp. The bus driver refused, and said “not if the wheelchair isn’t yours” - likely because the man was standing and not sitting in it. The man said “this is my wheelchair”. He asked multiple times and the driver continued to refuse. So the guy starts loading his items one-by-one onto the bus so he can lift the wheelchair in.
As the guy is loading the items, the bus driver tries pulling away and driving off multiple times. Each time the guy has to grab onto the door or gets in front of the bus. Once he’s finally in the bus he asks for securements so his wheelchair doesn’t roll around. The bus driver doesn’t respond for minutes - and I think he called it in to the police. Eventually he gets to securing the wheelchair.
During the ride the dude is rightly upset, so he talks to the bus driver and says “thank you for doing your job” in a kind of perturbed tone. Then one lady starts screaming at him to “shut the fuck up”, saying “nobody cares about what you’re going through”, things like that.
I was appalled. I didn’t really do much except back him up and say that he had to fight to get his wheelchair on the bus. Finally we ride a few stops and he gets off, apparently before the police could get there. I’m still bewildered that the driver called the cops on a dude who just wanted to get his wheelchair on the bus.
Honestly, I don’t think it should have mattered if the wheelchair was his or not. I don’t see why someone can’t get help transporting a wheelchair. I also know that some people that look fully abled do need wheelchairs. It really pissed me off to see this happen.
Adobe Creative Cloud holds creative works hostage: if you stop paying the monthly fee or if Adobe's servers go down, you can't edit your work. Once you buy into the Adobe ecosystem, you're stuck there and forced to pay rent.
There are many free open alternatives which give you full control over your work without locking you down:
Buddy I work with just got out of 84 days served because it was that or pay some fines caused by an illegal traffic stop; paying the fines would've put his wife on the street.
If anyone in #ChapelHill knows of some work needs done, he's a good handyman, does basic lawn stuff, indoor paints well and even does some sheetrock stuff.
Finally finished my TADA68 mk build.
Theme was LAVA so I was going for charcoal black and orange color scheme. I was held back getting a carbon fiber plate manufactured, so I decided to cut from PETG. Ended up looking fantastic and the transparent plate helps light up the white PCB with the orange glow. I'm missing a black 1.75u shift key, using a white one for now. The DSA keys really look like obsidian cobbles floating in the flaming liquid <3 #theWorkshop
"What are you taking selfies for? Who'd want to look at those?"
"I'm sorry, sweetie. It's this new filter-"
"Stupid ears and makeup?"
"No, it says it'll show a true portrait."
"Lemme see. Huh. You look a lot better there, almost pretty. Lemme try, gimme. Why's it made me ugly?"

if you're dropping fedilab for not blocking gab, why not drop windows for linux while you're at it?
. gave notch billions of dollars
. recently accepted a $480 million contract to develop VR tech for the US army
. profits from nearly every computer sale in the world, regardless of whether you want to even use the preinstalled windows or not
. overworks employees and retains "permatemp" employees, who work for the company permanently on a temp contract, to avoid providing medical benefits
. bans usage of the word "gay" (even as a surname) on xbox live
. collects data from windows users with no means to disable it
and the worst part is, because of microsoft's data collection, microsoft actually profits off of you if you have windows installed, unlike fedilab. if you ask others to uninstall fedilab, make sure you uninstall windows!
In the next release, I will enable to discover peertube instances. Due to my recent choice, I guess some admins that wanted to see their instance inside the app no longer agree. You can reply to this thread publicly or in private.
I will only accept instances that do use moderation, with no content unsafe for minors, that does respect everyones and that have been run since few months.
