I was looking around for a wallpaper to go with my new grayscale setup. After a little while of trolling around, I realised that I could make my own. After going through a few designs, I settled on this.

Yes, there's a reason to run your own Nextcloud server. Of course, it might also have downtime. But not the whole world is down at the same time... And YOU control the setup and how you handle High Availability and reliability.

So far, after 7 hours of iCloud outage:
1) hundreds of millions of users impacted
2) no information provided by @AppleSupport
3) no news outlet covering this global, huge issue

if this is …

Also, on the note of games: anti-cheat. One of the few things that I think needs to be closed source. It wouldn't be effective without that code secrecy.

yo I get that steam is drm but have you seen the work they put in on steam play, especially proton, which is now open source?

I got a raspberry pi 3b+! Any projects I should look into?

We are looking for more maintainers for specific apps in #FDroid. Here is a list of some that would need some love:

* GNU #Ring
* #VLC
* #Fennec
* #Vespuccio
* #GhostCommander
* #Linphone

If you know how to build software in general, no particular Android experience is required. This can be picked up as you go :)

All of those already have working recipes available but all of them also have quirks that require manual action when updating.

Please get in contact, if you use one of these and are interested!

@viciousviscosity what you call ingredients is actually GNU/ingredients, or as I've taken to calling it, GNU plus ingredients

Hi Cassidy, I'm a FLOSS Beauty enthusiast and I'm going through the world of FLOSS trying to find designs and UXs that are appealing to the end user, and not just the FLOSS community. I was wondering if you'd be willing to answer a few questions for a profile on elementaryOS and the design ecosystem you have going.
