This kind of comes down to "Freedom to Make Potentially Dangerous Choices", which in practice is the same as "Freedom to Someday Leave a Hegemonic Society".

I think.

I can’t believe that in [current year] basic features like [literally hardest problem to solve] isn’t fixed yet. Absolute laziness on the part of [massively underfunded open source org]

I'm grateful to the open source projects and 3rd parties who maintain a way to get full service for free. And to the folks who are able to pay for these services to stay running!

What do you use for notes and to-dos? I struggle with getting overwhelmed with tasks and find that getting them out of my head helps.
I've tried multiple apps but failed at committing to using them.
Trying out Standard Notes now; pleasant interface, syncs across devices, extensible, and I can have notes and to-dos side all in one place.
Unfortunately I'm not in a financial position to sustain a subscription right now, but it was pretty easy to get the functionality I needed for free!

Is there a way to follow a that you don't vote in?
I've seen a few that I'm interested in the results of but don't have an answer to contribute.

Came across this tool to help find a Linux distro based on your needs/preferences.
Pretty slick for people who may be lost on where to start. Or just want something new

I'm a new software made by @NicolasConstant

It's mostly a pet-project to understand how this protocol works, and being a little useful by the same time.
The aim is to provide a private (followers-only) Twitter to ActivityPub relay.

I'm still in a beta state, but hopefully I should be in a stable state very soon.
If you'd like to test the software, please contact me!

@LinuxLounge As someone who posts regular videos to a decently sized subscriber base, what are your thoughts on vs ? What do you like/dislike about either platform?

Any :opensuse: users 'round these parts?
I'm thinking about switching away from :solus: Solus and seems like a great choice on paper.
Rolling release, loads of packages with Packman, YaST for when you just want a GUI.

Would be great to get my partner on something manageable too, maybe Leap.

Reminder that I wrote a book for struggling programmers called "The Mediocre Programmer". It's a book about helping folks along on their journey with programming, including advice on finding communities, ranking ourselves (spoiler: it's not helpful), backstage vs. performance, and even the emotions surrounding programming. It's a free eBook released under a Creative Commons license. I hope you'll check it out:

Six years ago I ran a thing called cassettes for me.

A new tape, with digital copy, every month.

I advertised it with this flyer.

If I started that up again, would anyone be interested?

@brandon This! Every time there’s an update on iOS, apps try to abuse the background refresh access and I like to keep it enabled only for select few. I check the location access granted to the apps regularly. Healthy battery. Healthy phone.

Digital privacy news in Canada. Hopefully this helps push forward a new era of accountability for big tech. cbc.ca/news/opinion/opinion-di
