How will FOSS grow and thrive if we can't even put our own support behind FOSS platforms and tools? If you're responsible for a FOSS project, there's no excuse for being associated with Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Discord, Slack, GitHub, Trello, CircleCI, Windows, or any of the rest. We have FOSS platforms and FOSS infrastructure, they're here, and they're *better* than the proprietary ones. Use them, please. Use them, please. I'm begging you.

Das #staatstrojaner Gesetz, wo jeder Bundespolizist ohne Verdachtsgrund die Überwachung eines jeden veranlassen kann, ist so offensichtlich Grundgesetwidrig, daß man es einfach nur als Wahlkampfgag abtun könnte. Aber verdammte Hacke. Nein.

El Salvador convicted Sara Rogel of aborting a pregnancy, and sentenced her to 30 years in prison.

She has been released by a judge after 8 years in prison.

This is what conservatives want.

canada, islamophobia, murder, grief 

A 20yo white guy ran his pickup truck into a Muslim family out for an evening walk.

The only survivor was a 9yo boy. His mom, dad, older sister and grandma are dead.

News outlets are doing their usual with questions like “was this a hate crime?” and “was this terrorism?”

But all I can think about is that 9yo kid laying in a hospital bed. His family gone in a flash. I hope he has someone who really loves him. Someone who will hug him and hold him as he cries.

I'm saying if #Renault builds an engine and #BMW builds other parts, it's fair to call that automobile Renault/BMW or Renault+BMW.

For the software developers out there: let's remember that #Microsoft owns #github so if you rely on some code hosted on github then this is your problem as well. Don't think that you are not involved. We are all involved.

#Microsoft and other big tech companies have too much power in the world. Work towards reducing their power and empower individuals instead.

⛔ Stop tracking #science

"A fundamental transformation is currently changing scholarly publishing to the detriment of science and society. After the commercialization and ensuing development of a dominant oligopoly of a few major publishers, another expropriation of scholarship is now on the agenda: the switch from selling content to trading data. Scientific publishers are becoming data trading platforms."

a) Firefox https only mode (support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/h) is great and you should use it.

b) why does firefox mobile/fenix not yet support it? 😢

Here's the tracking issue: github.com/mozilla-mobile/feni

Hopefully soon.

How to get the most out of your X200. Don't merely flash it; upgrade the default boot flash! With 16MiB boot flash, you could easily fit a linux kernel and tiny minimal OS inside initramfs. I'm planning to integrate Linuxboot in Libreboot, in the future. yewtu.be/watch?v=iL_bVls62Ag
