Some period tracking apps will share your data. Stay safe, use one from @fdroidorg without Internet permission.

Possible options are:
drip (safest!)

All of these apps don't ask for internet permission and thus can't share your data. Drip goes the extra mile and explicitly opts out of Android's backup framework so your data won't be backed up on Google servers.

Please boost for those who need it!

What are my options if I want to run my phone with #FreeSoftware? For our #UpcyclingAndroid campaign we interviewed Plasma Mobile developer Bhushan Shah from KDE about running a privacy-respecting and secure GNU/Linux ecosystem on your phone.

Apparently twitter users are demanding from Elon Musk to disable Tesla cars of Russian owners.
This shows how pervasive this idea that electronic devices don't really belong to us, even though we bought them, already is.

It’s really sad how much infighting there is in the Linux desktop community. There’s plenty of room for all of us to coexist. We should be united against closed source desktops instead.

I donated 20$ to gitea on GitHub today. It's not much, but since I use @codeberg which runs on @gitea I felt like I had picked out a nice target for this year's Christmas donation.

If you have a few dollars to spare #donate it to something you believe in. Every piece of donation helps towards a bigger goal.

Merry (albeit a somewhat belated) Christmas everyone.

>It's only one minute long, but this CCTV footage has a better narrative and more compelling character arcs than most of the arthouse films I've seen

I'm taking the opportunity this year to try an donate to a few Linux / Open Source projects that have enabled me over the past year. I encourage anyone who has the means to donate to a project that in retrospect they would have been happy spending money on.

People often wonder why printers are so cantankerous but frankly any device that embeds pigmented runes in the remains of long-dead trees is going to be stricken by an ancient faerie curse from the start

Someone just came into the Pinephone chatroom to share a "snake game"... claiming it was their first attempt at making a game.

Problem was, this was *malware*. Created using bashfuscator. 😈

I had to instruct an old person how to use an Android phone and it went a little like this:

"When the screen goes dark, you need to turn it back on by pressing this unmarked button on the right. Then, when the screen lights up with the clock, a background picture, and no other indication of what you should do, you need to place your finger on the screen and swipe upwards."

When did we decide that this was a good idea?? I might as well teach them how to use Vim at this point.
