Looks like Twitter's already sold to Elon Musk judging by his recent tweet?

Hmm, still waiting for the official announcement.

Linux gaming has come a long way. And, Valve's proton compatibility layer has made a lot of impact in particular.

While this is good news for Steam users, Linux is still missing out on things like GamePass.

If you want something ad-free and spam-free, just pay/donate for it to make it happen.

I've noticed a lot of comments on the web demanding no ads but they have no intention of paying.

So, how do you want them to maintain the server and keep the lights on? Do you have some vodoo magic to help them? 🤦‍♂️

Ads are the necessary evil.

As bad as it sounds, a user cannot go subscribing to every publication behind a paywall.

And, advertisements ensure free access to information.

This is the only reason I whitelist my favorite web services to let them keep their lights on.

Did you know that social media can be used against you? 😱 Even if you are using Mastodon.

Considering we all rely on social media for many things, it is better to be safe than sorry ☠️👀

Vivaldi 4 update is exciting, have you tried it yet?

What are your thoughts on Signal's recent silent vulnerability patching and generally lack of proper public communication?

It looks like everything Moxie says - is what they stick to.

Maybe we need a better fork of Signal?

California can lead the nation on broadband infrastructure if the legislature approves the first steps for Governor Newsom’s broadband proposal next week. But instead, they may park $7b of broadband funding to think it over.

They need to hear from you.

We often forget how far we've come and that we probably have enough with what we've achieved.

Appreciate your success, you don't have to exhaust yourself with constant growth.

Let's be real - COVID has dangerously affected the mental health for many.

For instance, I never had anxiety attacks earlier but last year I was at the hospital for the same.

I'm usually a remote working guy who never goes out often. Now, I keep myself engaged in different activities while taking regular breaks at work to avoid overthinking.

But, I'd ask everyone to be acknowledge this and be compassionate to each other, you never know what the other person is going through.

#Tusky 15.1 is out! It is the same as Tusky 15.0, except it doesn't crash when captioning images.

Tips to boost productivity? Do this, do that..Oh, come on.

All you have to do is simply focus on getting things done and taking breaks while you do that.

And, do whatever you feel like that helps you stay focused and get the task done.

It's that simple. You do not need to take a tip from any influencer.

I'm wondering how can one create a bot account that reposts tweets from Twitter?

@mike @kev Any pointers?

On one side, Facebook says they aim to comply with new IT rules of India.

And, WhatsApo challenges the government on the rule that undermines encryption.

Make up your mind, Zuck.

I almost didn't think of it until now. Just because the new IT rules in India undermines encryption, apps like Signal and @session might end up getting blocked in India tomorrow.
