In case you missed it, Google Play recently removed the @Tusky Mastodon app without proper explanation.
Tusky is one of the best Android Mastodon apps, with nothing controversial in it at all. It's quite disturbing that Google can and does act like this.
An alternative and much better way of getting Tusky onto your Android device is by using the independent FOSS app store @fdroidorg
You can find instructions for installing F-Droid here: https://switching.software/replace/google-play/
If you haven't checked them out, definitely recommended!
@Framasoft Merci beaucoup! Votre travail est vraiment class et trés important. Superb!
Around 8000 clients in Myanmar/Burma are connected the Tor network. This does not count the users connected by bridges to Tor.
In Briar all communication goes through Tor, to protect your identity.
To circumvent censorship, Briar gives you access to bridges in case Tor is blocked by your ISP.
In case of internet shutdown, Briar can use Bluetooth and WiFi to pass on messages to your contacts.
As of today you can apply to my former job! 🎉🎉 https://www.mamacash.org/en/vacancy-it-systems-network-engineer
Think selfhosted servers, IaaC (Ansible) virtualization (KVM, Ceph, Debian, Ubuntu), FOSS apps (Zimbra, Nextcloud, Rocketchat), and Linux Mint desktops.

If the Assange prosecution is successful, it will set a dangerous precedent: that journalists can be prosecuted based on their interactions with sources who provide them with government secrets
"Self-testing indicates your ORPort is reachable from the outside. Excellent."
Satisfying log message!
Any ideas for using new #pi4 on a cool project more than welcomed!
The RIAA threw an October Surprise late last month when it sent a takedown demand to Github over Youtube-dl, a general purpose, lawful tool that allowed people to download Youtube videos.
The RIAA's position on this was downright bizarre. First, it asserted that the kind of obfuscation that Youtube uses to hide the download URLs for its videos were a form of DRM, illegal to bypass under Section 1201 of the 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
After several months, @mobilizon is out!
It seems to be a very good fit in these times of protests when people need to self-organize to fight for their rights, away from large companies which can and have already censored them!
Have a look at the guided tour @Framasoft offers in their blog, it’s full of great ideas.
Congrats to them, I’m happy to support you financially, and it was well worth the wait 🎉
Good news for "Public Money? #PublicCode !":
@Gina quick question if you don't mind?
Do you use a vnc server & client for remote desktop access for Mint machines? If so, which one? I've been trying tightvnc but not having much joy yet...
