We pay to Steam, Netflix, Amazon prime, Spotify. But not to Wikipedia,, Librivox, Project Gutenberg, for our favourite Linux distro.

The huge asymmetry between corporate and community has not emerged naturally. It is a product of our choices of not supporting community oriented projects.

The short conveniences vs the long-term good. We always chose the former.

In face of surveillance capitalism, we must and must change.

@linmob i have to try that, In general i like to keep no code on the phone but sim pin active... but if changing that is all it takes to make the pinephone my daily driver, I’ll definitely change lol

What we need is an extension that blocks every cookie from sites that open the "this page uses cookies" without an option to not accept them.

on the is daily driver quality stuff... Except not being able to unlock my SIM card 😞

Application team: "Let's place the service on the DMZ server, it won't need access to LAN resources"

Application team a few days later: "So, we need access to: the production TFS server, the production Domain Controllers, a few development servers and inbound access from the entire LAN"


God is good! Almost full on Eve on a phone 😮 and free to play!

A single box running LAMP with a fallback secondary node will easily hit 99.99% availability without any distributed systems nonsense

Disposable email address services are ass

@bignose yeah i was trying out tootle too since that’s what i use on desktop but it doesn’t really like alpine linux or my version of flatpak or something... can’t get past the instance selector :/ i tried whalebird and it seems fine, for the moment i think i’ll stick to pinafore (lightweight web app) and try to get tootle to work if i can!

@bignose tusky is great but it’s for android 😬 postmarketOS (and in general the various pinephone distros) is based on full desktop linux, so I’d have to run tusky in an android emulator. I’m sure there’s a way to do it though...

@brandon whalebird seems to be working fine for now! Thanks!

Anyone's got a good app for Mastodon on PostmarketOS/Linux desktop with touch coompat? Using Tootle on my laptop but it doesn't want me to login on my Pinephone :(

@normandc Battery seems to hang around 5-6 hrs of standby, not super great but not super troubling. Wifi seems super slow, yes, but I have only tried it with my iPhone's hotspot (fiber connection and secondary sim are both at home, I'm currently on vacation), but I haven't got any hang while using uMastonauts, Quickddit, Teleports or FluffyChat. I'll definitely try and though.

@publicvoit Long range followup: Emojis now work!
I had to add Emojify, then if it is present it is autoloaded by mastodon-mode. Font support isn't enough apparently!

@person never too late to get one! They’re selling the upgraded version with usbc dock and 3GB RAM right now!
