I'm seeing a lot of toots related on where to emigrate from LastPass.
How about instead of just migrate to the new thing, start supporting the real solution away from corporate or business decision, whatever fits better for you:


There's probably more, but those two are the ones I use, recommend and support.

Hey y'all, what are some FOSS or FOSS-adjacent projects in need of some monetary love?

I'm interested in the kinds which tend to push the boundaries, not existing giants like Wikimedia or the FSF.

Looks like Santa was here and brought me the thing I always wanted when I was a kid: the most secure and hackeable watch ever invented, the CASIO F-91W

Big red flag on the F-Droid ecosystem

Newpipe v. 0.20.1 (both foxy Droid & F-Droid versions) are crashing if launch from external app. Not big deal about that.

What is really fishy is to immediately after the crash offering to download and install an APK with the - apparently - updated version (0.20.2) bypassing all the protections we may have .

Do you know something about it, @fdroidorg ?

Rant on #mastodon & lists 

I'm still thinking the requirement on follow someone to be able to added to a list is stupid.

I want lists to have my timeline as short as I please and then have multiple lists to switch and read when mood, interest or whatnot comes along.

Is this only or something configurable by instance?

Apps targeting Android SDK 30 published by F-Droid cannot yet be installed on Android 11. This affects at least FairEmail, Netguard, OpenVPN and a few others.

You might want to hold up upgrading your device to Android 11 for a few weeks if you rely on any of these apps.

As a developer, you might want to hold up upgrading targetSDK to 30 for a bit.

The issue is tracked here, including a workaround for getting your data back from FairEmail in case you already fell into this trap.

I'm looking for a "big" -cheap- affordable ereader device with a lit display (front-light with ereaders if I'm correct). I've currently looking at the Note 2, which is a 10.3" device I can get second hand for €449

Any other suggestions or better sales?

The perfect tablet does not exist:

A: Good hardware+software to achieve low latency

B: Supports multiple user accounts

C: Has alternative app stores so it doesn't choke innovation

D: Provides regular software upgrades for long life.

Apple scores on A & D whereas Android on B & C.

I've decided to change the name of my new Arbitrary Stats System, because the acronym was inappropriate. It's now called Arbitrary Roleplaying Stats Engine.

I'm looking for a Video Editor .
Which one do you recommend?

I love this answer developers.login.gov/faq/

Can we turn off two factor authentication?
- No.

And that's how it should be answered.
As IDP in a SSO context that's the only acceptable answer: NO, the SP can't and shall not be able to disable user's 2FA.

My friends decided I'm not welcome in their group because I did mention I'm still using Linux's kernel 4.1x branch and I have no intentions to jump to 5.x anytime soon.

So sad.
