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 🎉

What's your favorite open source on ?

I'm looking for recommendations on those with better features, both functionality and aesthetic features even if I'd have to donate a little something to the devs

Boosts are appreciated 😊

@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...


Nothing to do with but Ireland just lost to Slovakia on penalties and I'm gutted

Google banned LBRY Android from the Playstore without warning and for contrived reasons.

This video details their exact communications, reasoning, and hypocrisy.

We believe we are being targeted due to big creators fleeing YouTube for LBRY.

Please share 🙏
