@Seferi technical reasons in this case: @fdroidorg cannot build the app with its current build server setup. Upgrades to the build server are on their way, but need some final tests and "organized deployment" before they are in place. But as @Aman9das wrote, you can meanwhile use my repo where @Mastodon is available in.

Is there a reason why the official @Mastodon app is not available on @fdroidorg ? Boosts are welcome..

Yeah, sex is great but have you ever flipped the power switch on an original IBM PC

Sounds like things are still on track for the Mark2. The date hasn't slipped (so far), and Mimic3 sounds really interesting. This update includes a demo of Mycroft integrating with in a completely offline but still voice driven system. Honestly, this is the goal for me. A voice driven environment where not one component of it requires an actual Internet connection, just local network. No one needs to know my front door is unlocked but me.

“What comes after the hashtags?”

Europe spends €700,000,000 of your money each day to fund Russia’s war in Ukraine.

“You seem to value only money. And right now we’re literally dying for democracy…”

For shame, Europe, for shame. Watch this. Share this. Do something.

@amolith Hey mate, I remember nixnet offering a DNS server with pihole. Is it still the case?

We pay to Steam, Netflix, Amazon prime, Spotify. But not to Wikipedia,, Librivox, Project Gutenberg, for our favourite Linux distro.

The huge asymmetry between corporate and community has not emerged naturally. It is a product of our choices of not supporting community oriented projects.

The short conveniences vs the long-term good. We always chose the former.

In face of surveillance capitalism, we must and must change.

Everything is getting to "too much" for most people these days. The people who tend to be the most resilient have had people leaning on them without a break for a long while, and they're also starting to crack.

If there is someone in your circle you think isn't struggling, reach out to them. There's a significant chance they need a little emotional care right now, because they're probably providing a lot of it to others.

I added #CactusComments to my blog the other day. Means, that people can now officially and publicly bash against the grammar gore I write :scremcat:

Cactus is a heavily slimmed-down #FLOSS #Matrix client that you can easily embed to your website. Coolest thing is, that it's actually Matrix, so your visitors and you can moderate/write/read comments with your fav Matrix client.

KUDOS to the Cactus folks. Great work!

Got a new alert in my Mozilla Job Feed last night for a Senior Product Manager, Ad Products

Can’t say I’m overly keen on where this is heading if you combine it with the Senior Product Manager, Shopping position that also popped up

Busy week for but at least we can show off new stuff!

📣 As of today, there's a Keyoxide Android app 🎉

It's a client much like the website (so no key editing just yet…) and will allow you to verify identities in pretty much the same way: copy-paste a fingerprint or email address and voilà!

And soon supporting QR code scanning for easier input!

Also in the process of putting on :fdroid:!

Big 👏👏👏 for our very own @Seferi who developed it!

Blog post:

@codeberg Is there a 'get it on codeberg' logo ? Like this one:

I would love to use it to link to the releases page. It would be awesome!

Centralised messenger Signal has just announced that they are making part of their server software closed source. They claim it is to fight spam, but by using closed source they make it impossible for outsiders to verify the truth. This is worrying.

We really, really need a fully open, decentralised alternative to Signal.

There are several alternatives being developed, please support them:

➡️ @snikket_im

➡️ @xmpp

➡️ @matrix

➡️ @delta

➡️ @briar

➡️ @Jami
