Hi fosstodon! Newish here, looking for some good oss projects that might be looking for contributors, to continue improving my dev skills. Coding practice feels like running on a treadmill and work is work (love my job, but variety is nice 😁)

Any suggestions?

@socnet.supes.com will not be blocking #gab when it federates. We embrace free speech in all its forms. If you dont like what someone says you are welcome not to listen to them. It is NOT your right to silence the views of those who dont agree with you!

So let's see if I got this straight, Trump is a corrupt politician with a corporatist agenda in bed with huge companies. So to get the power back from huge corporations we need a huge corporation to meddle with elections. You now so that a country with a BNP of a european country don't do it or what? Maybe media companies got "screwed over" because they've been screwing people over for decades?

"What happened to my JavaScript phone?" by Garann Means youtube.com/watch?v=14wIbWGyaK

Great talk. You could also call this "What happened to my open-source/hackable phone?" Maybe someday the smartphone market will stabilize to the point where the geeks can take it back.

I'd like to see an UI that allowsone of these coupled with cheap VR glasses and a gamepad gloves to be used for development.

Basically a glorified shell interface for 360 degree display.

Used in conjunction with VPSs.

Clever UI solutions could make this effective development machine for developing markets?

Anyone who thinks that a bunch of random Stormer larpers are a bigger fascist threat than surveillance megacorporations like Google and Facebook is fundamentally clueless about the nature of the world we live in.

Email has many flaws, but it's the last, strongest part of the non-centralised Internet we have left. We should promote and support it for that reason.

So apparently the CCP regularly executes Falun Gong and Uyghurs to harvest their organs: chinatribunal.com/final-judgem

We need to put a full (progressively imposed) embargo in place, so that there can be a revolution in China and that these Crimes against Humanity can be prosecuted. Just disgusting

MSM is scum and should be ridiculed at every opportunity!

@TBF Why can't the stupid Netflix "app" just use the letters on the numpad as in T9??

Exactly what I have been obsessing over for years now.

I will stop here with #Gab by removing the block feature inside the app in the next release.

My motivations:

- I didn't receive a reply from Google policy team about a potential ban of the application.
- Without the previous risk, I clearly think that's not my role. I can't hard-code instance blocks especially when every tools are here for that.
- If you want a strong block, it's in the hands of social network developers or your admins.
