So now the trend is to crap on crypto?
People complaining crypto has xyz issues, completely oblivious those issues are the same on any currency and most markets.

I believe that one could selfhost an email server from a raspberry pi, from home using Cloudflare tunnel, using a custom domain. Would this be a bad idea? Why?

I encourage everyone to chip in on this crowd fund campaign. Louis Rossman, well-known Right to Repair lobbyist wants to get laws passed in his country USA for Right to Repair.

This will greatly benefit projects like coreboot and riscv-related projects.

Right to repair means: access to schematics, boardviews and other such info necessary for repair. Presently, hardware/logic info is highly restrictive. This law would be a huge legal precedent for future rights.

You can export your subscriptions as a link from this page:

TIL I can keep my subscriptions of Reddit without having an account and visiting their website.

Lastpass or Bitwarden the concept is almost the same. You have to trust them and you are exposing your data to extra riscs by sending them your data.

But do you really need them? Probably not.

Why not Keepass + Syncthing or Myki and sync between your devices?

Phone + Desktop/Laptop + NAS

in an effort to make my arch install more light and possibly secure due to the recent cve I try to find alternatives to , i learn about and I like it.

but then I don't need sudo, to remove sudo I can't use yay since it needs sudo, so yay is out too.

for yay replacement I try , it's nice but needs and since I'm using paru I expected to remove ANY other package manager like yay and pacman but can't

so I'm at point zero where I have to keep sudo, yay and pacman damit lol

too bad yay has sudo as dependency

so paru it is

Something's missing from , something like a global feed of blog posts from users inside the app.

Something like what happens here at or . Imagine you had to find Mastodon users on other platforms and add their contacts manually to follow their posts.

Than the fact that you can't make calls over Briar makes it even least of an option for users of ex. .

Yeah I know there's many challenges to make that happen, I'm just saying what would make Briar take off IMHO.

"DecSync CC is an Android application which synchronizes contacts, calendars and tasks using DecSync without requiring a server. To start synchronizing, all you have to do is synchronize your selected DecSync directory, using for example Syncthing."

F-Droid Server (_fdroidserver_) v2.0 will be released in two weeks! We would like to include as many languages as possible. These are the tools used for building apps and working with app repositories.

Can someone confirm that it's possible to export your data from @signal app?

I mean in a way that you can use it in other apps, like as text and not encrypted, not exclusive to restore in signal app.

I'm not sure and i'm not currently using signal to confirm this but I remember that I had a lot of trouble doing this and had to resort to an outdated signal app fork to do it because the option was intentionally removed from signal and in the end I couldn't do it.

When US/EU change/implement new law's that make this centralized companies ( @signal @telegram @whatsapp ... ) provide ways for gov/authorities to access all stored user data, people will understand why decentralized is much better --> @xmpp
