@Genen we shall be getting ready in some 48mins for bat signal transmission. Excited.

"Hey, you can't come in here unless you're Covid negative, and I need to see proof."

Let's roll that back to the 80s and 90s and see if it sounds as "Great".

"Hey, you can't come in here unless you're HIV negative, and I need to see proof."

Somehow, it's not as ok sounding. Huh.

Reminder of why #Signal is far from optimal:

- No #anonymity (every account is connected to a phone number)
- Not #opensource (the git repo of the server hasn't been updated in a year)
- No #decentralization
- No web client, and max. 1 mobile client per account
- No #privacy (your entire contact list is uploaded to the server. It's encrypted, but it's trivial to brute-force encrypted phone numbers. You can prevent it by disabling the PIN feature, but it's enabled by default without warning.)

Over the past 15 years of using #XMPP, I've seen many messengers come and go. People complain about the hassle of switching messengers, but many express a preference for the "simplicity" of gated gardens.... Do they count the cost of switching as well?

A truly sustainable messenger can only be a decentralized protocol, not just an app.

Here's a tutorial on how to set up your developer environment!

That content will certainly encompass videos, but after having worked through this, I want to mainly write more, short form blog posts and otherwise do a content overhaul to #LINMOBapps (adding all apps from tasks.md, checking all apps in apps.csv and more).

@linmob What I would love to see, would be a short #Peertube video of each app in the #MobileLinux app directory. I don't mean a full review, as most of them are going to be new, buggy and in development, anyway.

I'd just like to at least see each screen, what they're for and the features they have. Possibly showing an easy way of installing them on say #Manjaro+#PlasmaMobile, #Mobian+#Phosh and #UbuntuTouch would be a nice bonus.

Right now it's hard to know what's worth the effort to install.

When Google's Fancy Lawyers Screw Up

A redacted document showed extremely sensitive information. Google's lawyer accidentally made it public.

This case includes an allegation that Google’s large online advertising marketplace - think stock market but instead of stocks they trade ad slots - is riddled with secret rigged auctions.

“... a deal between Google and Facebook to give Facebook some preferred position in those ad auctions...”


Biden is the Most anti-American President in US History

There are numerous money shots in this article ranging attacks on our beliefs, cities in trouble, Bidens misguided antics, and the vaccination push.


Sidney Powell called Joe Biden a "demented pervert...who can't tie his own shoelace." Gosh I love her.

“Just realize they took the two most pathetic candidates in the history of the Democratic Party. A vice president who didn’t even win a primary in her own state. And a demented pervert, among other things, who can’t even tie his own shoelaces or know where he is and they crammed them up our nose with a fork of fraud so blatant that it is visible around the world.”
