Has anyone else stopped getting excited about new tech? It's just like "cool, a new thing to invade my privacy".

I'd really like to learn how to write a Linux GUI. But I really don't want to decide which graphics toolkit is the least offensive to use.

GTK looks nice, but seems to be paying everyone off. Qt is not open source and people seemed bummed about whatever license thing I don't have time to read about. I'm not sure what to choose.

Anyone using Jami? Curious how popular it is throughout the community. If you have used it....any feedback? What devices are you using it on and do you sync it across multiple devices? Are you using it for family, friends, business or all of the above?

In 2021, I get Covid 19. Does it bother me? Not really. As a Debian user I'm used to having stuff that is atleast 2 years old.

Google just deleted the YouTube-channel for @thelinuxEXP, without any reason. It's a respectable content creator that makes videos about Linux and software.

I guess this should work as a friendly reminder to not use YouTube for anything that you care about.

Daily reminder to self that most "worrying" in your life is ultimately bullshit.

In almost every case, worrying more doesn't make you more prepared, or a smarter person because you're "looking at things that no one has seen." That's only in a very small number of cases.

It does, however, make you more stressed and with more anxiety. And that's guaranteed.

I am wondering, ever since I removed the Google Contacts app together with the Google Play Services from my phone, I can't access my contacts from any app on my phone, like Signal or WhatsApp all just show that I have no contacts although I added contacts using the Simple Contacts app, anybody experienced this and maybe even has a solution to this? Because this shit is really annoying. Boosts Appreciated.

What happens to the interactions if a post is deleted on Mastodon?

Forgive me the blasphemy, but is there an ActivityPub bridge for Instagram, just like there is e.g. beta.birdsite.live for Twitter?
