Hello to Fosstodon from the PinePhone! The planets have aligned and the wifi driver actually works at the moment. This is coming from Sailfish OS. Yes, I have sinned.

Long story short: none of them really work yet, but that is to be expected. Ubuntu Touch is by far the furthest along and most polished, along with Sailfish. postmarketOS is also coming along nicely, but Plasma Mobile needs a lot of work (not a problem of their distro, technically).

Hopefully I can completely switch to Ubuntu Touch or Sailfish in a month or two.

:blobuwu: HTTP is a pull-based medium. it is within the original philosophy of HTTP to selectively pull the data, for example, a device that doesn't support images won't download them. by circumventing ad "blocking", you are spitting in the face of HTTP. a more accurate term would be ad rejection. ads are not "blocked", they are simply not asked for.

Why does have so many problems detecting open source JavaScript? To be honest, it is more of a pain to use it than not use it. You can't even export/import white and blacklists.

What is the best laptop for 4? I've looked at the HCL. Would a new X1 carbon work well with it?

What are some good open source related podcasts?

Fixed Airsonic by wiping it out completely. Thankfully I'm my only user.

How to make an overly complicated personal media streaming solution on : install on your file server. Install. for Android. Edit a text file to set up the Android mpd as a satellite, connected to the music over NFS or SMB. Use for Android to connect to local mpd and stream away. Then VPN into your home network while on the go. Why do this? decided to stop finding music, and the docker image is not well constructed.

Switch to basically complete. Only a few proprietary apps remain. Next up is to build a powered baby monitor using ?

Testing out . Surprisingly stable. Certainly not ready for the majority of users yet, but it is a step in the right direction.

#Medium now fully completed their paywalling efforts. The public page's now completely inaccessible without logging in.

Unsuspecting visitors to Medium's #articles now can't #read them unless they lock themselves into the platform.

The ability to search for new #content written by independent creators? Gone! The goal's to usurp content created by others free of charge to make you pay the centralized platform to access it.

#Plume exists to combat this, using the power of the #fediverse.
