@peertube I would love to use peertube with my TV, but unfortunately, I am not aware of a kodi plugin, nor a webOS app. Do you have any suggestions?

@e_mydata @murena @gael Is App Lounge open source ? And can you install it on any android phone ?

This, right here, is why companies everywhere should not use social media alone for service status updates.

The fact that Proton's status page says we should go to Twitter for "more information" means that Proton is less accessible to folks without Twitter accounts. And that's no good.

@feditips Could someone explain to me why someone would deliberately take the time to use capitalization like that ? I think it is generational, but maybe it is more of a subculture thing…

You know that thing where people make fun of a terrible opinion by writing it in a mixture of upper and lower case? It's probably not a good idea.

Screenreader software used by blind or partially-sighted people interprets capital letters as the beginning of a word.

This means that a phrase written as "FiNe PEopLe oN BoTh siDeS" will sound like gibberish.

If accessibility matters to you, try to avoid doing this.

@nextcloud Instead of supporting a bridge to matrix, why not just integrate matrix natively into Talk? Gitter.im and Rocket.chat already did this, and it will probably be a waste of resources to continue backend end development.

@markusl Thanks, but I already have the sent media quality set to "high". The resolution is just unacceptably low for me...

Does anyone know if there is a way to send a full resolution photo with Signal on android?

@zash But if they filmed you doing that, you'd probably be doubly screwed 😀

At the entrance of a mall just outside of Paris I saw this discreet message on the ground: "Here, get yourself filmed so that we won't see you anymore. Stay in this zone for 10 seconds and you won't be included in our statistics."

What do you do?

I managed to successfully replace branches of Google and Microsoft monopolies for personal use: for mail, for search, for browsing (desktop & mobile), and Murena + /e/ + Fairphone for smartphones. These migrations were mostly painless.

I'm still stuck with others though: 🧵

@astrojuanlu try Magic Earth for maps. Navigation is good, there are good voices in several languages, it uses open street map data, and visually, the default is better than osmand and organic maps (the latter two are highly customizable, though). Its not open source, but they appear to be privacy centric.

⁦@k9mail_app⁩, a project I started way back in 2008 has found a forever home as part of the Mozilla family! Congrats to ⁦@cketti⁩ on making this happen! blog.thunderbird.net/2022/06/r
