Pinned toot

I'm sorry to say but I gave up on using XMPP, at least for now.

I travel a lot and can't be always online. The built-in relays for me at least, proved wanky at best and for now I can't be bothered to admin my own relay server just for something as basic as getting messages

To my contacs, you still can reach me through here, matrix or Email

Every software project should have an updated "roadmap" page so that we have a clear view of the direction of the current development

I mean, I like surprises also, but this would be great I think

What about you?

Whenever an HN poster refers to a project as "modern," I read it as "written in Javascript and crayons."

Ok new folks...you've been lurking long enough. Go ahead and drop that toot and tell us a bit about yourself. 😀

Can we please stop using Discord for Free software and open source projects, thanks!

Another day, another nsfw fetish/furry post creeps into my newsfeed
Just a reminder that the ban instance option is a lifesaver when it comes to filtering out stuff

For fuck sakes Mozilla, why is there a medium tracking urls on your addons page?! And this is when I search using the Add-ons Manager!

Are you out of your mind?

Let's face it.

Centos is dead.

There is a kinda Fedora LTS now and it called Centos Stream.

There is AlmaLinux which is the new Centos.

I'd say the fact that we now have the thing which is called Centos Stream is good.

And we have AlmaLinux as well which is what we had before.

At the end of the day, we have what we had and a new good thing. I'm ok with that.

@privacytools @social.privacytools.io Can I please get an answer from someone 🙏
I would like to use and donate for some of their services, but would wish for some clarification on the location of the server.
I noticed that has been paying for hosting since November 2019 (opencollective.com/aragon-vent). If all services are hosted here, all services are based in the US and therefore the entry on hello-matrix.net/public_server should be changed from DE to US!

@fatboy Facebook/WhatsApp can get fucked. I refuse to accept their terms and conditions

Does anyone know of a simple, self-hostable survey tool besides LimeSurvey?
Wanted to do a quick survey for my friends and it turned into a bigger adventure than I expected

The developers of Signal are currently doing a user survey:

surveys.signalusers.org/s3

I told them that I really like the app but also that I would like:
a) Signal on @fdroidorg
b) a proper desktop client
c) no data stored in "secure enclaves"

Maybe you'd like to tell them, too?

It's unfortunate that Google never got the memo about phones having vertical screens. The switch from a vertical to a horizontal recent applications view drives me nuts.

They went from being able to see about five recent applications and being able to quickly glance over them. And now? You can see *one* at the time. It takes ages to switch between applications. It's actually so slow that I prefer to go home, open the drawer and then just launch the application from there.
