I am really grateful that G+ closes down, it made me looking into an alternative. I found it in the #fediverse and in a revival of using #rss feeds. And to be able to read the same feeds on multiple devices, i put #freshrss on my vps, and #easyrss from @fdroidorg on my Android devices.

i wish i never had to "log in" to anything ever again. its so stressful. maybe i should delete all of my accounts on everything. that way i wouldn't have to feel that sense of stress anymore. i wouldnt be able to receive emails or post these toots anymore though. but maybe thats a fair price to pay, to not have to "log in" ever again. i wish i never had to do it. ever again. y'know i wish i'd never have to "log in" to anything ever again, y'know. thats how im feelin. thats about how im feelin

but I mean if you aren't going to abandon the C2S paradigm why not use the AP C2S part of the spec

Me: I don't understand why people aren't using the ActivityPub client to server part of the spec

Also me: The client to server paradigm (as opposed to p2p applications that have no client / server distinction) is at the root of the failure of the fediverse to take off and be resilient

@uri_herrera also Flatpak has a permission system that let you run apps that you don't fully trust, even proprietary ones, like on Android. Instead now from a security point of view all the Linux distributions rely on the assumption that you run only software from the official reporitories and that you totally trust it, no space for third party software run safely.

@uri_herrera and OSTree for the system. OSTree powers Flatpak too and it's great because you can have different versions of the same software installed without increasing the size too much. So a Flatpak app is guaranteed to run everywhere but if you install multiple apps that shares 90% of the libraries the storage is shared too, so it doesn't really increase.

My UAV ground control app #Kirogi is named after the Korean word for wild, undomesticated geese - pro pilots. Here's a WIP sketch for the app's mascot to be used in promo: An adventurous domestic goose who's just as good at flying thanks to his mastery of superior technology! Shoutout to AsmoArael @ artstation.com/asmoarael for helping me realize this character.

The Linux Questions community has voted and declared KDE Plasma "Desktop Environment of the Year 2018", Kdenlive "Authoring App of the Year", Dolphin "File Manager of the Year" and Konsole "X Terminal Emulator of the Year" for second year in a row.


@espectalll @aral @angristan I'm not @aral, but:

1. Yes, if you're switching away from Medium to a self-hosted blog and not for privacy reasons, I'd say you don't mind privacy
2. No, using React itself is fine; React itself is free & ethical software (if controlled by :facebook: ). But if you're a person who's working *on* React at :facebook: , *that* tells a lot about whether the user privacy means much too you.

A dream of mine is a distro based on but distributed with , with and by default and a solid but simple tiling script for , applications installed by unprivileged users as , convergent apps as system apps including a browser with 's as engine, apps support with as backend to centralize the management of the apps, Windows apps provided by Flatpak repos like that ships
