Hooray! Signal now works on Google free ROMs. Not sure when this changed, only know that roughly a year ago it would not work without Google play services.

Hopefully this post will allay any concerns. TL;DR - we got your back!

Y'all I want Xmas to hurry up because MR ROBOT FINAL SEASON IS THE REASON 4 THE SEASON

Maybe what I like about programming is the ability to solve a problem when I feel like there are so many other problems internal and external to my life that I don’t have the ability to solve. Maybe this is the reason why when I can’t solve a programming problem it bothers me so much.

things i like about old electronics: you open up the case, and there's an envelope glued to the inside that contains the complete schematics and calibration instructions. a bunch of companies did that until the early 80s, too bad it never really caught on and just stopped at some point.

PSA: Stop labelling people interested in OPSEC and privacy as "paranoid". Paranoia is a mental illness, heavily influenced by fear, that makes someone believe they're under constant threat even when there is no evidence for thinking so.

Being careful about your online identity, privacy, taking care of your passwords, and using second factor authentication is not paranoia. It's common sense.

There are malicious actors who want to get their hands on as much information as possible. This is fact.

We strive to make Firefox a great experience. Last weekend we failed, and we’re sorry.

Hey,

If you see things wrong with your country, and you live in a democratic country, you can help fix them. That's the whole point.

Go to meetings of your legislature, or talk with the members for your area. Or start or help an advocacy group to write bills and lobby to fix the problem.

These are not just politician things to do. These are good citizen things to do.
