Lot of voices against duckduckgo and protonmail.

Now this is how to raise a persons anxiety and paranoia

Im looking for a modern looking mail client for android .

K9 and others from fdroid are fine but I feel design style is still in its 2015.

Am I missing on something . Or am I asking for too much ? :thaenkin:

I use and I love seeing that it is gaining in popularity. There are many things about it that are better than other search engines. But, let's not forget that DDG is NOT open source and NOT 100% private. They are not scandal-free either.

lemmy.ml/post/31321 has some examples and it goes without saying that if a product is free, you are the product.

Use :duckduckgo: but don't search for anything you wouldn't want printed in your local newspaper.

Man I gotta stop buying domains for every stupid startup idea I have.

As requested (by a.o. @lxzio and @zleap ) we started with a place to discuss ideas, features and concepts: github.com/Flockingbird/roost/

The main features for Flockingbird are there now. More are following soon.

Feel free to drop your ideas, thoughts, ideas in either new tickets or as comments on the existing.

If comments don't work, we might move it to a wiki instead; this is new for us too.

Obviously a PM or mention on mastodon also works if you have feedback or ideas.

Convinced few of my friends to hop over to linux.
They tried and went back to windows as "windows feels right at home. And I have wsl. Its best of both world"

@lxzio code is at github.com/flockingbird/roost (mirrored to git.webschuur.com/flockingbird if you don't want github).

Code is Proof of Concept phase.

We're not familiar with RFCs but it sounds a bit too rigid and overhead-ed for the current phase.

Would issues with proper tags on GH work too? Because if so, we can move/rewrite some todo's from our internal docs to public issues that can gather feedback.

Now that I've figured that hosting my own mail server on a cloud platform is close to impossible.

Recommend me the absolute cheapest email provider or a vps which doesn't block email ports.

@lxzio From reddit.com/r/privatelife/comme:

> The following in addition to message metadata is now exploitable commodity for Facebook Inc.: messaging, calling, Status, groups (including group name, group picture, group description), payments or business features; profile photo, "about" information; whether you are online, when you last used our Services (your "last seen"); and when you last updated your "about" information.

Can someone give me a vaild argument point to tell my friends when they tell "WhatsApp is End to end encrypted so they cannot see the chat " . Apart from "Facebook Bad" cause they dont care .

Weird observation . Most of my apps from fdroid have a green icon

A quick git tip for those who dont know . Always use . Unless you want to traverse back in commit history

git clone <url> --depth=1

This also reduces downloaded content thus saving up on bandwidth
