Firefox became so bloated, we can't ship it anymore for i386 architecture on OpenBSD because we just can't compile it :flan_shrug:

i386 can't allocate a lot of memory to a single process, and during the compilation we hit this limit.

Goodbye Firefox on i386, you used to work fine but you didn't made exercises to lose some fat as people suggested to you, you are a bit more isolated now.

Get off Facebook. Get off every Facebook service. Block Facebook. Don't work for Facebook. Don't provide services to Facebook. Find every way you can to get them out of your life and support others in doing the same.

They are ethically indefensible.

NFTs in concept are great. Imagine buying a concert ticket with crypto and getting an NFT allowing you access into the concert. At this point they are just ways to “own” a digital piece that doesn’t even give you rights to that art

Apparently, Facebook's DNS info getting wiped is what took down their website, and it didn't just take down their website, but crashed their entire corporate HQ, because things like door card verification and logins, because those services were routed over the Internet instead of a corporate Intranet.

This is a great example of why I think electronic access control is a stupid idea.

Getting locked out of my house because SmartLock Inc forgot to renew their domain doesn't seem so far outside the realm of possibility.

I'd like to thank Facebook for making today one of the happiest days in recent memory.

🇬🇧 Messaging providers such as Whatsapp should be required to review messages that are so far securely end-to-end encrypted. This is what the Legal Affairs Committee called for today in its opinion on the #DigitalServicesAct #DSA. This is how MEPs voted:

As #Signal has had severe problems recently due to its centralised nature, here are some decentralised libre alternatives with Fediverse accounts:

It's weird to think we've been so many years into the USB-C era, yet the fancy brand modern buses I see around here all come with… USB-A

USB-C (an Qi for that matter) was so close

Wooow I just saw a GNOME developer call this politely asking for a simple feature where the maintainer mocks users as people "harassing" the maintainer "over years". 🙄🙄 Get over yourselves.

Did you know that you can now link your account to #GitHub and (fully optional)? This allows to assign migrated content to your account and a quick login via M$ GH.

- register a normal account (if not already done)
- click the "Link Account" section on the sign in page
- authorize Codeberg via a third-party service
→ migrated content from these platforms will be linked to your account
→ you can now login via these services, too (Warning: they will learn about each login)


We've had a lot of low-hanging fruit that's very easy to deal with (such as 'macOS menu bar says "Audacity"':, but we are stretched very thin and are dealing with bigger problems.

I get that contributing to an audio editor is very intimidating. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in joining a team that would deal with such issues.

Finally!! We have landed the spaces to Cinny. You can navigate nesting of spaces and pin the one you like to sidebar.

Check them at Release:

I should really explain the things I did in order to organize the @tenacity project someday after I woke up seeing that someone else had given me and another person the helm of a burning ship in greater detail at some point.

I explained some of the things I did with the help of others in great detail here:

⚠️ IMPORTANT: Users of Element Desktop/Web/Android, FluffyChat & Nheko should upgrade immediately to address a critical encryption vulnerability.

We are not aware of this being exploited in the wild yet, but as the bug is now disclosed please upgrade now.

We're currently close to bringing support for wxWidgets 3.0 to Tenacity. Although that may result in some mild visual bugs, it will result in the program working in Linux distributions like Devuan, Void Linux, Debian, among others.

We just merged an initial patch that should allow Tenacity to be compiled using the stable version of wxWidgets. That means that Linux packagers will be able to ship our first release without shipping an unstable version to its users. Still being worked on!
