If you're currently using #GoogleAnalytics, you are helping Google spy on your own site's visitors.

To protect your visitors' privacy, try switching to an independent free open source alternative like #Matomo:

matomo.org

The self-hosted version is FLOSS and (of course) free of charge, while the managed hosting version is a paid account.

It's GDPR compliant and by default respects "Do Not Track".

I find it odd that the term "open source" is used more than "free software" in Linux communities. Open source can deny you freedom in its use and sharing. We should be promoting free software more.

Really feeling like deleting my Google account today, even though it may inconvenience me quite a bit.

#Newpipe 0.14.2 can't play YouTube videos anymore. Downgrading to 0.14.1 seems to work for the moment. (Need to uninstall the latest version first.)

The problem is fixed upstream in version 0.15 which will be on fdroid in 1-2 days.

While I can't take any credit for their amazing season, I was very happy to help Chartreuse win the championship game! Now comes the long wait until spring league...

Just built my first desktop computer and gotta say it was a great experience. Installed Solus for my OS after a lot of research and haven't been disappointed. They're killing it with Budgie and the whole experience. I just found my go-to distro.

A while back I tried my hand at recording a series for . Who'd have thought the market was as saturated as everyone warned me about?

Either way, I enjoyed the process, and have started it up again--this time releasing on an open-sourced, distributed network called .

Been playing around with and it works.

I really like how light weight it feels in the sense it's not trying to bring you into any ecosystem and is *free.*

I won't use it to replace any cloud storage but for backing up my media in the past 3 days it has been proved to be very useful.

Extra-long holiday break bit me in the butt: I stroll into work today, ready for an easy week of testing the few tickets left in my queue, only to notice the Sprint Review meeting this afternoon.

So turns out last week was the *second* week of the sprint and not the first... This isn't going to be a fun conversation with my scrum master.

Setting up a server on my desktop: relatively straightforward undertaking, or absolute nightmare? Make your opinion heard here!

Continuing down the rabbit hole.

Any good keyboards out there for that have swiping? I'm afraid it's too late for me to change my typing style now.

Just tooting 'hello' from my google-free phone. Still wading through the waters of replacing all proprietary apps with ones, but like most resolutions, the key is consistency.
