Found ruffle written in rust to run old flash games I had saved decades ago.


FreeBSD feels like a different world. No shiny snaps, no flatpaks, no electron apps. Most apps have download links for Windows, Linux and macOS but not for FreeBSD. Although Freshports have a good collection of software for FreeBSD, the real fun lies in building from source.

Is there anyone that uses that wants to try it with me?
There is not one person I know that uses briar or will ever try it with me.

Briar is a concept. It works fully offline so if anything ever happens to the internet then you will be able to message people.

It finally happened.

Witness a recent @EA game launching flawlessly on Linux, and crashing hard on @Windows.


Battery usage of two video players.
The only drawback of mpv (for me) is I can't resize video.

:fdroid: mpv is available on repo

Consider Store as an alternative to .

What it is:
- it is a Google Play Store mirror
- open source and free
- no tracking
- available on F-Droid ()
- works without a Google account
- doesn't need Google Play Services (nor )
- not recommended: you can log in with a Google account if you wish
- UI is way easier to navigate compared to Google's Store

Quick story of my distro hopping

:windows: -> :debian: -> :ubuntu: -> :kdeneon: -> :ubuntu: -> :archlinux: -> :artix: (soon -> :alpine:)

All the cool kids are getting PinePhones.

Using is simple, secure and easy. Just create an xmpp account, install an xmpp client, login and start chatting.

Is there a static site generator that is very simple for my blog?
I am using hugo currently but I would want something that is simpler.

All I want it to do is covert my markdown files to html and then generate a main page with all my posts on it. My site would have css to make it nicer. Along with an rss feed that can go to my site at /blog instead of going to /

At first I said static site host but I meant generator.

RAGE Pinephone Matrix 

Now that FF removed the PWA shit Hydrogen is no longer usable. It also doesn't seem to work in Angelfish or Chromium and Qutebrowser has a new dependency that plain doesn't exist anywhere in the internet. Nheko is total dogshit on mobile devices because it crashes every few seconds and with luck half of the buttons work and Mirage doesn't just load fdor ages it loads forever now. That makes the Matrix situation on the Pinephone about as bad as it can possibly be aka broken

@GreyLinux If you want to try a fully decentralized chat messenger then Briar is nice to try.
DeltaChat is nothing more then a frontend for email but email can be really private if used correctly.
I made a video about session if you want to check it out
Its nothing different then any other messenger like Signal or Matrix and xmpp.

@GreyLinux I been using Signal since about 2018 (It might not be that year). Only with one person as another way of communicating but its been great.

I also have used Tox, Jami, Matrix, XMPP, Telegram, briar, delta chat, Session.
The ones I recommend are mostly Matrix, signal, xmpp (have not tested it much but its been good when I did) and DeltaChat (It uses email so as long as your email is private then it should be private to).
