:boost_ok: :ablobcatwave: Please boost this post if you would like the EFF to join the fediverse. :ablobcatbongo:

In a survey the EFF sent me, I suggested they create an account on the fediverse, so they can reach more supporters and support innovative free software that promotes interoperability among platforms, something they've advocated for in the past, too.

If you can boost this post, maybe I'll be able to show them that there are quite a few users who would like them here!

The EFF is the infamous nonprofit organisation that fights for privacy, government transparency, and digital freedom. Their fight is very important, and the EFF is very special to me. https://www.eff.org/about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_Frontier_Foundation

You can see some of their work here https://www.eff.org/work

In the meantime, you can follow @eff, which is an unofficial mirror of their Twitter.

Wow over 100,000 Mastodon accounts in one week. For all people new to Mastodon and the Fediverse there is a world to explore. Fediverse.Party provides a nice overview of all the social networks. Also make sure to go apps section in the menu to explore all other Fediverse software.


Is the Home Feed on here broke? I'm pretty sure I was following some folks who should be showing up in there.

I'm not back because Elon bought Twitter. I'm back because I finally got unlimited hotspot data and can finally spend more time on my laptop 😁

Ok, well thanks anyways guys. Figured I'd at least try asking. Sorry to bother you.

Plus I have to consider the remote administration interface that will help him manage it all.

My payment for doing all this is getting a Pi 4 kit of my own. Sounds fun to me :)

My buddy wants to send me a Raspberry Pi 4 to setup for him. Says he needs a router/server type deal that can manage a network and route web traffic, including to locally installed domains on the same Pi.

I'm familiar with setting up LAMP servers and managing networks via manufactured router. Though combining the router with the server on the same machine is rather new to me.

Any advice/ideas/suggestions welcome.

@kev ? @mike ? @ericbuijs ?

Been lurking here for a couple of weeks; might as well do a proper introduction now.

Got a physics PhD years back, but working in the electronics industry now.
I'm your run-of-the-mill linux and FOSS enthusiast (for over 20 years now). Switched over to linux permanently a couple of years ago.
For some reason I seem to be running mostly ARM hardware these days (several RPIs, pinebook pro, pinephone).

This will be a good oportunity to launch a public installation of miniflux.

Successfully replaced the screen in my Galaxy A50 (A505U1). Big change from replacing parts in PC's or laptops. It's amazing what they cram into these little circuit boards, eh?

My screen on my Galaxy A50 is toast. I ordered and adapter to connect to HDMI. Anyone know if I can simply connect the video and see results on the screen or is there more to setting up the connection?
I'll be using a usb-c to usb-c/hdmi/usb adapter to connect a display and a mouse in hopes I'll be able to interact with my device without use of the touchscreen display.
My coverage is as good as no coverage. I'm stuck salvaging some use of this until I can get it repaired. Any advice welcome.

Personally I think they just join the grey area of gaming that gets frowned upon by the FOSS world but still played by the gaming community in general. Microsoft brings more to the table for these studios. I'm curious to see where things go from here.

Because there's been some interest expressed regarding a Team Fosstodon on Folding@Home, I've created one. It's nothing to do with FOSS specifically, but it's a good cause. If you'd like to join, our team number is 240334.

It's nice to see a social community that's not constantly plagued by coronavirus posts. Us open source folks are used to keeping busy at home anyways eh?

Does anyone on here use Hughesnet for internet? Looking for insight into the QoS Function in the modem settings. Hoping to use it to better manage my bandwidth so certain devices don't take up a majority of the bandwidth while others don't get enough.
