Heh, new users are great. Everytime there's a wave of users coming in from another social platform, it feels like a small victory for decentralized networks. The more users there are, the more the systems are tested, the more they get optimized, and the better they become ^^
I mean whats better than a network that allows you to communicate with everyone on it, yet have your own rules?
@kev @clacke @ericbuijs I am actually looking for a new laptop. I will be running #elementaryos. I have experience with repairing old non circuit board toys. Will I still be able to repair think pads? I mean are parts easy to change with screwdriver and clip on easily. The new flexible wires are difficult for me.
Repairs here in India are expensive. It's easier to buy new.
Also are parts easily available? One more question, where do I go to learn how to make repairs ?

@pranav Not sure if it dulls your senses, but it definitely cuts back on what makes you sick.
@elementary no more updates on flatpak. Have you dropped the plan ?
Still searching for a TV that won't monitor me, as in no software, no wifi, no built in ads! Just a display with HDMI and excellent picture quality.
Finally found this one from a smaller German brand called Technisat. Problem is though that for other big brand TVs I can find detailed reviews of everything, but for this one can't find a single review.
Anyone have any experience with Technisat TV's?

Apple's new iOS 13 includes 'Sign in With Apple' that allows you to login to supported apps more privately.
In this video, @JoannaStern explains why it is more private than reusing passwords, using weak passwords, or logging in with Facebook/Google. https://www.wsj.com/video/series/joanna-stern-personal-technology/why-sign-in-with-apple-beats-passwords-and-facebook/21DE18B4-28CA-478C-99FB-C026C8BF993A
