If you're Swedish and like Linux, open source and friendly communities, I would highly suggest you checking out the newly started project linuxkompis.se.

We currently have a forum, Mastodon instance and an IRC-channel. :)

The problem with the web is that is so great, so grand – we need a huge monster of a browser to use it as some people would like us to use it. Since other people are simultaneously attacking, distracting, abusing and confusing us, we need an array of defences at the same time.
• Privacy Badger
• uBlock Origin
• uMatrix
• HTTPS Everywhere
• HTTPS by default
• Decentraleyes
More attack surface, more moving parts, more parties to trust. That's why we need a simpler web: we want smaller tools, too!

Bought @Tutanota Premium today. Actually their Free Plan was just enough for me but these guys deserve some support.

Unpopular opinion? 

Things we didn't do:
- Start the fire

- Back down
- That

Things we will never do:

(Oops:

How is Tusky minus gab different from wlroots minus nvidia? 

Friendly reminder to send to the non-believers, in a simple to understand fashion

You can't opt-out of Google tracking your phone - Sen. Josh Hawley owns Google - PeerTube on Mastodon.host peertube.mastodon.host/videos/

What do we want?

Lazy evaluation!

When do we want it?

Only when it is needed!!!!

For anyone who doesn't understand why the Tusky change is wrong:

It may not be against the letter of free/open source software*, but it is certainly in the spirit. FOSS does not discriminate against its users and remain FOSS, including the users you don't like. The freedom to use the software as you wish is unalienable, including for gab users.

* both definitions

That, and don't add rickrolls to your project for any reason.

Reminder that if your Mastodon instance has been updated to 2.9 or higher, you can see the new simpler one-column interface very easily:

1. Go to preferences/settings

2. Untick the box marked "Enable advanced web interface". (To go back to the multicolumn interface, just tick the box again.)

Manyverse is an Android app for the Scuttlebutt social network.

Scuttlebutt is very unusual: it has no servers. All the data people share is stored on their own devices, and on the devices of people they share it with.

It's also unusual because it can work off-the-grid, via bluetooth or local wifi.

Manyverse is available from @fdroidorg and Google Play, and there's an iOS version on the way:

manyver.se

You can follow Manyverse at:

I just thought I would share how I use my Linux to play games. If you feel like it is worth the reward, then feel free to donate it to the EFF.
