Hey, #Fediverse, do you use (say, at least once per week) any Mozilla products?

Context: some people are claiming "nobody uses Mozilla's products anymore". I'd like to see if that's actually true.

If you wear glasses, are they clean? Take a moment and clean them up so you can see a little better.

Finishing up my first day on @wholesomedonut 's Frontier hardcore snapshot world. It's not much but it's home. 😀

If you're interested in playing with us (on either the Main or Hardcore servers), we'd love to have more people!

Join us on Matrix:

@yaourtiere I have read Notre-Dame de Paris (Hugo) (a shortened version), which actually wasn't too bad, but maybe just because this version was shorter (and maybe even rewritten to be easier). I might want to check out other works in that direction...
Also I've read L'Etranger (Camus), but admittedly I've forgot what it was about.

Hey there french-speaking friends

I'll have a major french test in about a year and I need to have read 4 books by then. Anyone able to recommend any (rather well-known) books? All the books we read in the lessons were 1800s and I HATED them.

Chers amis francophones

J'aurai un examen grand pour quel je dois avoir lu 4 livres. Pouvez vous recommmender quelques livres un peu connues? Les livres j'ai eu dans les leçons dataient au XIVème ciècle, et je les ai détesté.

Dear developers, you encounter an open source project and feel enticed to check out their community. Discord is mentioned as the only place where the discussions take place.

Your reaction?

A - Great, I already have an account anyway.
B - Ok, I'd be willing to join if the project is interesting enough.
C - Not ok, I will not be part of those discussions.
D - Other (see comment)

Boosts appreciated (research for blog post).

Google moving away from the open APK format to a proprietary Android app format locked to Google Play. Yet another way to preference their own store and stifle competition.

I feel like there's an ideological cold war out there in tech (and possibly in tech education) between

1. "computers MUST be fully user-programmable or a massive social disaster will occur on the order of Fascism and Communism, but now with pervasive surveillance"


2. "computers are far too dangerous to allow users to control, so they MUST be centrally managed and filtered by a genius tech elite".

I stand firmly in camp 1.

Whenever I see people espousing Camp 2 ideas, I shiver and run.
