- Charging dock included in price
- Built-in heartbeat monitor
- Case built of Zinc alloy and plastic
- Battery life measured in days

We all know that Google (with Chrome-ium) has at least close to 90% of the browser marketshare on the internet.

Which is your primary browser on your computer?

Remember that Brave, Opera and Edge are Chromium derivatives. I consider Safari to be separate since it's Webkit and not Blink.

Retoot this to get more votes in.

Alright, friends, I've set up a repo and a chat for the nameless #Goodreads alternative project! It's pretty empty atm, but now there's a central base where we can discuss and start working from:

If you have questions or want to discuss the project or contribute, check out the Gitter link, which lets you log in with a GitHub, GitLab, or Twitter account:

I'm excited to see where this goes!

There's a good article discussing the project on The Register:

After much deliberation I have decided to move instances. @fosstodon has been a wonderful home. I've been thinking about it for a while and the reason I decided to do it is because while I love open source software I am not much of a coder. I have decided to make my new home at . I feel like I will be able to contribute more to the overall conversation there than I do here. Thanks so much for being a wonderful home.

@davidblinux You may want to look into Bitwarden rather than LastPass. Free software, with a pleasant and responsive lead developer.

My streams buffer at this speed. Is the on my end or peertube ?

Just got a house visit from the adoption agency who will decide whether or not I may adopt Jazz, the handsome doggo stuck in a pro-kill animal shelter in Romania. It seems I've passed! 馃槂

We're now looking at dates. If all goes well he might arrive in the Netherlands before the 1st of August.

Opposition party today accused my country's government of selling driving license data to private companies without any proof. How can we make sure if it really happened ?
