What are some older laptops that have nice form factors that might be cheaper now and fun to mess with?
I gave away my Linux machine to a friend and I'm not willing to mess with my windows laptop until I'm out of college.
Thanks in advance!

(Looking for more than just thinkpads which I love as much as the rest of you!)

Of all the onscreen Batmans, my most favorite is...

LEGO Batman.

Okay ’s swipe typing is pretty rad even in beta! (This toot is brought to you by it!

AnySoftKeyboard has gesture typing now as a beta feature that you can turn on! It's terrible, but I'm excited that they're working on it and hopeful that they get it into a useable state eventually!

Anyone used mailbox.org for email? I tried Posteo but the web interface was super buggy and didn't allow me to send mail or view the calendar.

This weeks #TWIF is live on our (temporary) news website: fdroid.gitlab.io/fdroid-news/p

Read everything about getting #newpipe to finally built as well as all the updates that happened in the last 2 weeks!

Booted into windows and it made me so so happy to see "Microsoft Compatibility Telemetry" coming in third as the application with the most disk usage. Hurray for Microsoft. Don't you love it when Big Brother is nice enough to tell you how many resources they use on your computer?

#UNICEF wants to invest in #FreeSoftware "The Fund provides investment-style funding for early-stage, #OpenSource technology solutions that address the most pressing challenges faced by children and young people", further "UNICEF requires that all code, content or hardware developed and tested be open source and be publicly available."... Great initiative! ungm.org/Public/Notice/82482


Oh so very sad. They look so nice... Apparently milkweed acreage is declining so they have difficulty surviving. Californians with gardens: plant milkweed!

@kev I strongly disagree that the algorithm for duckduckgo is bad. It's just not google's and when you've used it for more than a decade its really hard to switch to another one.

It takes more than a month to train yourself to use duckduckgo.

DuckDuckGo is switching to use Apple Maps instead of with Mapbox. I'm ready to leave ddg now, but don't know where to turn yet.
Come to think of it, I normally went to openstreetmap.org to use maps anyway but this still makes me sad.

Yay. 🙃 (satire, this doesn't make me happy)

I really want to like and but I'm so accustomed to AutoCAD, SolidWorks, Inventor, and Fusion 360. I wish they were more similar. After learning Inventor, SolidWorks was a breeze. Unfortunately FreeCAD does not follow this rule and neither does LibreCAD and I don't have the time to learn new (unfortunately workplace irrelevant) software. 😥

I'd even settle for Linux ports so I wouldn't have to boot windows
