@antekone Another horrible related thing that's starting to happen a lot is that many email sysadmins are getting lazy when it comes to spam set up and simply rejecting all incoming messages from any mail servers that aren't google, ms etc which helps to cement their monopoly even more 😞

♲ @brookLYNevery1@twitter.com: just learned with horror that deleting any of the "family" emojis in google slides does not remove the emoji, but rather kills off each individual family member one by one, starting with the children

♲ @ryandroyd@twitter.com: please don't support the reanimated corpse of Telltale Games. they laid off their entire staff, got snapped up by shady millionaires, and now they're hiring people back as freelancers without benefits. get your games elsewhere

A while ago, like 6 months ago, I was talking to a few people on here about trackerball mouses (I think @ChrisWere instigated the conversation).

I since bought myself an ergo mouse, well, 2 actually. I have one at home and one at the office. They’re weird at first, but really good once you get used to them. I haven’t had an aching forearm since!

Thanks Chris, I never would have considered an ergo mouse if it wasn’t for that discussion.

Well, I'm not on Pop OS, for the most part it's ok, but getting use to the new workflow will take some time I think.

Can anyone recommend any useful extensions? I'd particularly like one that shows open windows on the top bar.

Translations for the 2019.6 release of Friendica

Hey everybody!
The branch to work on the 2019.6 release of ~friendica was created todaywhich means an important step for the next release.
If you want to help improving Friendica, but you cannot code, maybe you can speak more then English? If so, do you maybe have a couple of minutes spare time that you can invest into translating Friendica to that language?
Translation work is done at Transifexwith an easy to use online tool. The most important file to translate is the "messages.po" file, as it contains the strings used in the core of Friendica. We will make sure that your translation will get into the next release (should the messages.po file be translated more then 50%)
Thanks for your time :-) <3

Nobody falls for propaganda and conspiracy theories like someone openly proud of their intelligence and critical thinking abilities.

And there's nobody better at rationalizing bigotry and authoritarianism than someone who advertises their skepticism and rationality.

@mike @erikstl I use a handful of alias, not many though. Mostly for repetitive thing like:

alias update=“sudo apt-get update”

That kinda thing. They’re very useful.

We are toying with breaking from our Cli installer. Looking to see what the fediverse thinks.

The Archlanbs Installer should be?
