I'm making progress on SaveGNU.org !

My purpose is to raise awareness about threats to the safety of the Free Software movement, and in particular the GNU project.

I'm hoping to launch the site on the weekend beginning April 24th (I have other work to do beforehand)

Fun fact: the mutineer site attempting a hostile takeover of the GNU project is using a Linode IP address. The *real* gnu.org runs on libreboot D16 hardware.

IP block:, AS63949 Linode, LLC


Linode is a non-free VPS hosting provider. You need non-free javascript to use the control panel!

I'm making a site (on libreboot server!) to warn people.

They failed to remove RMS from FSF. Now they're after GNU. If you see their site: it is *NOT* the GNU project.

There is currently a mutiny going on within the GNU project. Some people are breaking away to fork parts of GNU. I won't mention it by name, or link it, because I don't want to boost it.

If you see it: it's *not* the GNU project. Keep supporting GNU, on gnu.org !

Boost this if you want to be part of an explicitly anticapitalist technology liberation movement.

The people condemning the return of Richard #Stallman to the #FSF never cared about the Free Software Foundation anyway so their opinions don't count for shit.

I've created an alt account where I'll post (mainly) in Spanish. You can follow it here @werwolf7

I installed Void last week and I've been trying it. I like Runit and I love xbps. It's even better than pacman.

The only problem that I have encountered is that Void's repos aren't near as big as Arch's. And I miss the AUR a lot.

I know that I could compile any program from source, but the problem is maintaining it updated. After reading the docs, xbps-src seems to solve that, but I haven't managed to install the Basilisk browser with xbps-src yet.

I hate how people is brainwashed with marketing. Eg Apple that sells their products like privacy friendly, but actually their products are the most jailed. Or Brave, which in reality is just another advertising company, just like Google.

I mean, it's understandable that normies believe those things because they don't have any knowledge about it. But I feel so frustrated when I see that IT people believe in corporations' lies.

Firefox reader view is awesome. It can make any article in a bloated website look so clean, organized and just better.

No ads, no distractions, no recommended posts, no more suscribe to our newsletter buttons, just the article that you want to read.

And it has a nice dark theme.

I want to create a simple personal website/blog but I don't know which static site generator should I use.

Ideally, something really simple and practical. I don't want JavaScript at all. Another cool feature would be that it doesn't require a database. It must be free software, of course.

I want to hear your recommendations

I've just remembered that the last Runit realise was in 2014. I've always thought that it's feature complete.

But is it secure ,for such an important piece of software as an init is, to be without any update for almost 7 years?

I don't know if it has received any security update since then, but I can't find anything about it.

I didn't know how to share files between OpenBSD and my degoogled Android phone, so I found this simple workaround:

With Material Files (from F-Droid, oc) you can create a FTP server in your LAN. You can enable and disable it anytime. So you can easily access your FTP server from your terminal or from something like Filezilla.

It's a really simple and secure way to transfer files between your PC and your phone. And it works with every OS out there.

I've just installed OpenBSD in an old PC. It's working great. Installation process is simple and pretty straight forward. And the number of package installed by default is impressive.

The most awesome part is RAM consumption. Only 79 MB. I'm loving the experience

I keep reading about BSD and the only thing I dislike about it is the license. Everything else is just awesome.

In a lot of things it's better than GNU/Linux. Specially for someone who likes to know what's running exactly in his computer, BSD codebase is smaller and much easier to read. A great example is their init system.

I wish that doas was in the official Arch's (or in Artix) repositories. It's such an important piece of software and I'm not very comfortable installing it from the AUR.

But at the same time I love it's simplicity and how it's code is so small compared with sudo's. That reduce the attack surface a lot.

I think that I'll be donating to the awesome Open BSD project. I've been reading about it and it's amazing.

>Google have suspended Element in the Play Store without notifying us; we’re reaching out to find out what’s going on. Apologies for the inconvenience; in the interim there’s https://f-droid.org/en/packages/im.vector.app/ but it’s a few versions behind. We’ll post updates here.

>As of 11:44 UTC we’ve submitted a detailed appeal to reiterate that Element is a generic chat app for connecting to the global Matrix communication network, just as Chrome is a generic web browser for connecting to the Web - and just as Google does not control the content on the Web, Element does not control the content on Matrix. https://element.io/blog/element-on-google-play-store/

Never forget that Google and all of its employees are bullies.

I've used a lot Abiword since I started using Linux, because it's perfect when you don't need a lot of features and you just need to write something quickly.

But the newest version is from 2019, it's sad that development seems to have stopped. It was a great lightweight alternative to LibreOffice.
