I'm guessing the popular answer to this might be, "Just don't!", but if I really want to cross-post from Mastodon to Twitter, what's the best way? I'm currently experimenting with IFTTT and Dlvr.it, and they do work, fairly ok... 馃

What is your current Linux distro and why are you using it over all the other options?

Anyone know how to get KeePassXC's auto type shortcut to work on ElementaryOS? I've tried setting various key combinations and none of them trigger it.

My MacBook Pro has decided to give me the gift of a spicy pillow.

Now I'm rushing to find a backup computer to buy so I can send this one in for repair, but also I'd kinda rather build one, but that's very difficult here.

We don't have a site like Newegg. I'd need to contact various sellers and buy 1 thing from each of them, and with no time to plan the build, I don't think it'll work out.

Maybe I just need to get a used Thinkpad or something.

@joseph the website IntelTechniques, has a workbook with several links that are updated regularly to help people remove themselves from these websites -- inteltechniques.com/workbook.h

Also, the website owner has one of the best podcasts about I've ever seen, listen to it when you have a chance in case you don't know it :ablobcatrave:


Tech no longer excites me: josephdefazio.com/tech-no-long

My first blog post - a continuation of my recent popular toot.

Maybe I'm complaining more than I should, but tech has me feeling sad lately.

That might be partly because tech is the only "fun" thing now. I've been under strict lockdown for 550 days at this point. That's a post for another day though.

Has anyone else stopped getting excited about new tech? It's just like "cool, a new thing to invade my privacy".

This is why Facebook is used for *everything* here. It's free to use. Don't even need a mobile data plan.

Gajim 1.4 Preview: Workspaces

The Gajim team has been hard at work in the past months to prepare the next v1.4 release. The upcoming version brings a major interface redesign. In this post, we explain how the new interface works and what remains to be decided or implemented before the release.


pros, I'm interested in setting up a home server for offline communication within my home network. My understanding is that file upload on XMPP requires a specific DNS record. How does this work for an offline server?

So what are your recommendations for scheduling/calendar applications?

I'm looking for something that makes time blocking for specific tasks easy.
My body clock tends to be chaotic, so a sensible way to shift tasks around is absolutely necessary :blobcatgrimacing:

The best I've found so far is amazingmarvin.com but it still leaves a lot to be desired IMO.

Open-source would be nice, but at this point I just want something that works :blobcatsadreach:

Initial impression is that the latest is most of what I want for on iOS and Mac. It could definitely use some improvements, but it's not the worst experience.

Some things I'd like added so far:
- Encryption by default, or at least not needing to enable it one by one on each chat
- Text size adjustments, especially on macOS.
- Improved UX for sending voice clips

XMPP is kinda interesting. If only everyone I knew was on Android. The iOS experience is pretty terrible.

My battery on LineageOS is terrible, just like that last time I used Lineage. Might be time to shop for a new phone that still gets updates soon.

Have a recommended XMPP server? I'm not interested in self hosting it at this time

Familiar with :apple_inc: Swift, UIKit, and know your way around XCode? Want to help advance the state of on ? :xmpp: 馃摫 We're looking for developers to help bring our iOS app over the finish line! 馃弫

This will be a paid short-term project producing FLOSS. DM or email matthew@snikket.org if you're interested.

Not an iOS dev? That's okay, boosts appreciated too! 馃檪
