Thanks to @debian 's €10,000 donation (and not $10,000 as announced a few hours ago), we've just reached the 4th step of our PeerTube fundraising. Many thanks to all those who donated. And it's not too late to contribute :

I need something like this in my life:
Minus the DE, just the terminal. Would be hardcore debloat from the smartphone.

My ~10 years old Lastpass account from before the LogMeIn purchase. Helped with translations just because I liked the service and they surprise me with this:
Status Premium - Expire at 1 of January 2088 05:00

Is this the end for companies with services that have privacy as a priority?

Could they enforce this on projects that have no business legal status? Like go after git projects?!

If you reach out to a developer complaining about a bug on his thing and you only have support from him at an hourly rate, make surge to let him know your hourly rate for helping him. :troll:

I was pretty fed up with the behavior of 'df', so I wrote my own diskfree tool.

It's called 'duf', it's written in #golang, and you can get it here:

On ArchLinux, you can simply install 'duf' from the AUR.

So I have something cool to show everyone...

I have finally gotten my own forum site off the ground!

Say hello to Mech Bay 316.

It’s powered by the FOSS Discourse package, which is written in Ruby on Rails, mostly. Hosted on a DigitalOcean droplet, with full HTTPS support.

I love posting here on Fosstodon. My website is for a bit more niche and/or long form content. I’m trying to spread the word to see what a community can do with the setup.

Maybe give it a go?

The irony of banning #TikTok because they "may" hand over to the Chinese government during a time when the US is actively trying to end #encryption (because they can't see your data) is a bit much to take...

Used to create FB/IG pages for all my online projects and i been neck deep on this using ads and managing FB biz's. Now i have a bunch of loops to jump before i can even delete my main FB account. Well, the process has started, some are deleted, some need to wait from 24h to 15 days. Why this 💩 has to be so complex.

Just finish watching and I think it will make a lot o people understand what's at stake. Many people will finally have that notion at least, not only people in to tech but "users".

It's easy to take it for granted but I see so many americans complaining about their situation in this matter, really puts it in perspective.
Health is a right, not a money making machine.
Doesn't matter if you poor or even your nationality, heath is a right for everyone!
Far from perfect but great job done by SNS (Serviço National de Saúde / National Health Service).
