Updating #UbuntuTouch #ubports #linux you don’t have to throw old phones away, they can be repurposed depending on the model. One of these was an #Android phone, now it’s free and running #linux. #reuse #recycle #eco

Please remember that #Git is by nature distributed. So when migrating from (for example) #GitHub to (for example) #GitLab please, please, please do NOT create a brand new repository and git add the files, or the entire commit history will be lost. Instead, just push the existing repository to your new hosting service.

I finally got the chance to play a bit with Svelte web framework, so far so (very) good

Trying to use more a physical notebook in everyday tasks and notes, any tips/strategies you have in engineering/software development areas. I find it calming to think by not looking at a display all the time.

@rudolf @cavaliertusky that kind of stuff is covered elsewhere in our CoC. TL;DR we’re not opposed to these topics as long as they’re behind a CW and the views mentioned aren’t extreme etc. Ultimately we take them on a case by case basis.

Any good offline wikis? Similar to dokuwiki

If you use Fennec/Firefox on Android, you should consider the First Party Isolation addon. All it does is to eneable or disable the first party isolation. In Android there is no switch, so you else need to fiddle around in about:config.
This protects against cross site tracking, but your logins still work.



Any EU based services (free as in freedom) you'd like to endorse, share with the masses? I find @codeberg very promising

Well, it's official, #Slackware will have PAM in the base system in its next version.

Patrick Volkerding's reasons for integrating PAM into Slackware are interesting and well worth a read:


I thought his shout out to different people were also nice. Volkerding has always come across as a nice and respectful person, unlike a lot of others BDFL.

I work in IT which is the reason this house has:

- mechanical windows
- mechanical door locks
- no Alexa/HomeKit/Google
- no Internet connected thermostats, lamps, or whatnots
- a dumb TV
- wall switches for lights

But I'd be interested in branching out.
