"For anybody who is using Ubuntu and got the Thunderbird 60 update and now is no longer able to use Lightning

The solution is to remove Lightning, then run "sudo apt install xul-ext-lightning" to then get the correct version of lightning and your calender should still be intact."
Ahora a ver qué pasa con los contactos sincronizados con #nextclud en @disroot ! :D

That you're celebrating 90 years since your first motion picture debut means you're well past your public domain bedtime you fucking rat.

But because your handlers can't stand the thought of giving you up to the rest of the world means we'll probably have to suffer another 90 years without anything going into the public domain, least of all the stuff that you stole from it.

Fuck you, Mickey. Fuck you.

Someone on birbsite complaining about Apple, because their downloaded movies disappeared. Apple's response was basically: "we don't carry those films anymore; have two free movie rentals."

This is why I don't trust digital only media, and this is why I hate iTunes. If I really care about what I'm buying, I buy it on disc. You just can't trust digital only media. Amazon isn't much different from Apple in this regard.

This company that sells clothing says it had to stop selling to EU because of GDPR. This image IS their site now, it says: "Blame your government (no, really)".

Really though? It's that hard to sell me clothes while respecting my privacy? You only have to blame yourself on this one 😂

Thinking about switching to (from Win7) on my main computer. Anyone have any tips, tricks or apps (that I should install)? This isn't going to happen right away but at one point I want to get away from Windows.

This is me right now (while I'm creating my own WordPress theme).

Google Glass was an interesting case because it showed us people do care about privacy, but only when they feel it's violated.

They will give endless data on themselves and others including photos, video and location but they will outrage the moment they feel privacy is actually at risk - because someone has a camera on their face instead of their hands.

Facebook is actually very clever to obtain all this data without triggering this sensation for the average person.

People know.. but they do not *feel*.

@kev It's funny that you are de-googling your life yet you still use google fonts on your site.
