Found a really cool project called that gives Firefox a global dark theme and gives you the option for additional customisation (like my rounded tabs). It ALSO themes popular extensions like uBlockOrigin, uMatrix, Decentraleyes, as well as many others!

Check out the project at the link below!

I'm now on at!

is going to assist me in posting to both and GNU/Social and getting a unified feed for both πŸ˜‰

I just started using so I could manage my LUG's Masto and birdsite accounts as well and my own from one app. The more I use it, the more impressed I am. Twidere actually succeeds in bringing -compliant social networks together into a unified experience.

Finally got my blog set up and migrated a few of my posts over to it.

The most recent one is about a tool @ceda_ei wrote for getting the forecast using .

Can anyone recommend a few Jekyll themes? I'm looking for something light-weight with very little JS and a professional . . . feel. I'd also like something unique. Ish. As unique as a theme can get πŸ˜‚

I'm looking around and I see a lot of great ones but then I start digging into the code and I see a ton of stuff I don't like, like three JS scripts for this "oh-so-fancy" scroll animation and queries to tons of third parties for JS and fonts and CSS that could and, imo, should be hosted locally.

I'm curious what your opinions are on this.

I'm thinking about writing a few blog posts (on a currently nonexistant blog πŸ˜†) on locking down Android and Android apps so it's more secure and private. I'll also have a few people more knowledgeable than I look over them and add/remove some things.

My questions is this: would it be better to do a couple long posts or more posts that are shorter? Like a post per app or something like that.

Just found a really cool initiative called over at

They say they are a "a network of cooperation and solidarity that uses free software to encourage through and distributed platforms."

That sounds like something we should be keeping an eye on πŸ‘€ πŸ˜‰

With my growing network of sites, I'm going to see what it takes to join and start contributing! πŸ™‚

Finally got around to making a logo with today. I'm not sure if I'll keep it indefinitely but it's something and something's better than nothing, especially if it doesn't look bad!

Maybe I'm being too stereotypical and, if so, I do apologise. It just made me immediately think of a shady marketing ploy on their part.

Sorry for all the notifications πŸ™ˆ
I just wanted to make sure these were part of the original thread instead of seemingly random and detached

Something else that honestly pissed me off about /e/ is that they had hundreds of people spamming Telegram channels about it. They would join, send a message promoting /e/, link to it, and promptly be banned. I also noted that many of them spoke broken English and, while there's absolutely nothing wrong with that, it does make me slightly suspicious that maybe they hired hundreds of people to spam Telegram channels as a marketing strategy.

Needless to say, I did not vote for /e/ to be the next mobile OS on the Fairphone 3. Even Replicant is by far the better choice.

I really hope to see postmarketOS or Ubuntu Touch on it. They would be really cool πŸ€”

I have to wonder why is so popular among people who are trying to "de-google" their lives and use something privacy-respecting and open source. I've personally experienced their censorship on Telegram when I asked a few basic questions about user privacy and how it truly differs from LOS with microG.

I also saw that you have to have an account with /e/ before you can use some of the most basic features. It's also incredibly buggy with reports every day about things breaking.

Just finished a new new tab page. I think this is my favourite so far. Not only is it coloured to match my desktop but I also made an electron app (I know 😒 electron 🀒) so it functions as a desktop app.

Proudly kanged from Capuno:

Earlier today, you could click index.html to view the startpage but it seems like he's doing some work to it πŸ€”

I'm also going to going plug for a minute.

I have email addresses at my domain now. I also use keys. I revoked ones associated with my other emails in favour of the new. I also use a password manager that encrypts my passwords with my key. The now-revoked key does nothing. So I don't have access to any of my passwords. Well OpenKeychain has a wonderful backup feature that lets you export a key and import it on your computer. I was literally sick until I found that feature 😌

I just transferred my domain to and I feel obligated to say that I am very satisfied. I was using and my domain,, was $8.50/yr.

I transferred for $11.50 and it'll renew at $13.50/yr but I ALSO have two mailboxes, unlimited aliases, spam detection/filtering, webui with , calendar/tasks (), and contacts ().

The best part is it's all syncable with , , and . extra mailboxes are only $0.40/mo too!

Just found out about a really cool website that shows you a globe-level view of all the stations in the world. You can pan around and click the different green dots to hear that station. You can also just drag the globe around and the cursor jumps to the nearest one so you can stay zoomed out and explore more efficiently! It's called .

As Pleroma can use any Mastodon client, I've logged into Tusky on mobile to try it out.

- Tusky inherits the character limit of your instance

- Displays basic text formatting

- Doesn't collapse toots that go over Mastodon's character limit but not over Pleroma's
