I'm looking to rewrite an android app of mine which I neglected for a while.
I've gotten a lot of recommendations for react native and flutter.

Is there anything good not owned by google/Facebook etc?

PSA: if something uses autotools, either install it from a system package (or make one), or set --prefix=/tmp for easier clean-up

"Although those who concern themselves with details are regarded as folk of limited intelligence, it seems to me that this part is essential, because it is the foundation, and it is impossible to erect any building or establish any method without understanding it's principles. It is not enough to have a liking for architecture. One must also know stone-cutting."

With my week for IMakeFoss coming at an end the final topic I want to discuss has nothing to do with XR but with the challenges of contributing to an Open Source project. Godot has developers contributing from all over the world. For me that is Sydney Australia.

I have a lot of respect for Laurie Bristow, the british ambassador in Afganistan, while most of the other ambassadors for other countries fled, he stays at the Airport to help getting interpreters getting their visa's signed and to get out of the country.

I understand how to configure and use a little better now, but there's one thing I still don't understand: If both my wired and wireless connections are active, which one is actually being used by my applications, e.g. my web browser? There are two different ip addresses for each device, and I assume if I were to try to access my computer via the network either one of those IP addresses would work; but what about outbound requests?

Pressure seems to be my worst enemy and best friend at the same time.

so.. I was wondering. When I'm gonna install CalyxOS .. how much of MicroG do I need to run Google Maps. because, frankly, I can't go without it. This is intended to become my workphone and I sometimes just need Google Maps for that

Just think about how much better the world would be if we just all accepted that people are different, and there is nothing wrong about that :)
