I feel like r/datahoarder people experience an entirely different YouTube than me. I haven't seen content worth downloading in probably 10 years.

I've been playing around with wezterm and fish since @lkhrs posted about them. I'm coming from iTerm with zsh.

I haven't noticed much of a difference other than the nicer command completion, but I didn't really use much of the iTerm features either.

Either way, fun to play with new tech. 😃

Know a good Slack alternative that isn't on this list?

- RocketChat: wants 1-5 year contract agreement to have unlimited push notifications 🤮
- Mattermost: bad message threading, no voice messages, bloated now that they added project management
- Zulip: bad UI/UX, interesting thread concept

Some period tracking apps will share your data. Stay safe, use one from @fdroidorg without Internet permission.

Possible options are:
drip (safest!)

All of these apps don't ask for internet permission and thus can't share your data. Drip goes the extra mile and explicitly opts out of Android's backup framework so your data won't be backed up on Google servers.

Please boost for those who need it!

Readers, use the library instead of returning purchased books at Amazon. There are libraries in the US where you can buy a non resident digital library card, even outside the US. Libraries have Kindle books, eBooks, and audiobooks. dailydot.com/unclick/amazon-ki #AmazonIsNotALibrary

Trying out watchtower for automatically updating my self hosted things.

I want to isolate my home server, but I've never worked with VLANs before. My router mentions VLAN as part of an IPTV feature. Is this what I need?

Router is a TP-Link Deco S4.

Android 12's verified link feature is extremely annoying. Makes me feel like I'm on iOS.

For those that don't know, basically links only open in apps if the site has authorized them to. No more opening links in third party social apps.

I hope OpenWith eventually gets updated to work smoothly as the default browser.

What do you listen to / watch while going to sleep?

I'm looking for a #selfhosted bookmarking app, similar to #wallabag, but allows for multiple people to share/save links and all parties can view.

My fiance and I share links with each other of random ideas, but they get lost in the noise of our conversations and emails. Wallabag is what I use now, but it's per user and we can't see what each other person saved.

Does anything exist? Thanks!

A lot of people online are so tense. There's no space for joking. Every post must be serious.

I want some extreme phone sizes. Give me a 3.5" screen and an 8" screen please.

This is kinda nuts.. Mastodon just surpassed Signal in the social networking category on the AppStore

Congrats @Gargron

Has LibRedirect stopped redirecting for anyone else?

I just set up a recurring donation to thecity.nyc/ because it's the only outlet so intensely devoted to doing the kind of in-depth local reporting our city needs. They're the ones who uncovered the Lt. Gov's fundraising shenanigans, and kept at the story until he went down for it.

If you live in NYC, go read their coverage and I bet you'll find them worth supporting too.
