- Busco un juego de estrategia sencillo. Encuentro el C&C: Rivals. Lo instalo.

- Primera partida, veo buenos gráficos y mecánicas interesantes.

- Termino la partida, me tiran una puñetera lootbox a la cara.

- Lo desinstalo. Buscaba un videojuego, no una tragaperras.

@sireebob i don't know of any, but here's my list:

Antennapod - podcast listening
SimpleGallery - better gallery than default android
Redreader - reddit
Davdroid/nextcloud/nextcloud notes - nextcloud wuth calendar support
Simpledraw - for simple drawing over images

@phoe @sir @slp the new ircv3 tags try to bring these features to IRC, while keeping it as it were before. attached is a screenshot of the message-reply IRCv3 tag draft demoed in irccloud.

@moderator @sir @phoe Important stuff must go via mailing list, where is archived in a way friendly to search engine crawlers.

You can easily find threads of LKML or *BSD just by searching on DuckDuckGo. Losing that due to the use of Slack or Discord is a *huge* loss, but we'll only be conscious about that in 3-5 years.

@phoe @sir The original toot was talking about FOSS projects, so I'm assuming most people involved have a technical background.

Also, with the proper tools, IRC isn't hard to use at all.

@phoe @sir The fact that IRC is text-only (though there's an updated spec in the making) is not a handicap but a feature.

IRC + mailing lists (with archives). When you put the facts on the table, there's nothing better.

I've just migrated one of my personal services to a OpenBSD VPS, and I'm honestly impressed by the quality of OpenSMTDd. The first SMTP with a configuration that actually makes sense. Kudos to the devs!

@pj I was a happy LOS user for years, until a few months ago I switched to AOSP to be able to sign the ROM and use it with a locked bootloader.

I think LineageOS devs do a great job on building a decent free Android base. But, if you install Google Apps, as many of its users do, you end in pretty much the same spot as if you were running a stock ROM.

I don't know about Blackberry, but Samsung appears to be doing a decent job with Knox.

Verifying that the keepass client I'm using on Android still doesn't have android.permission.INTERNET

@pj While I can't be 100% sure, Apple doesn't have an ad-centric business model. In fact, they seem quite comfortable antagonising Google here.

My two main problems with Android are:

1. AOSP is becoming smaller (relatively to the size of a stock ROM) on each release. Many apps in AOSP haven't received any significant update in years. Stock ROMs are mostly non-free software.

2. Default privacy options in stock Android are a joke.

@slp That said, the day Apple becomes a little less hostile to GNU/Linux (acknowledging it exists and porting iTunes would be a nice first step) I'll seriously consider switching to an iPhone.

Not a fan if their closed-source policy, but at least they have sane privacy defaults.

Just when I was considering giving up on AOSP due to the terrible performance or the stock (unmaintained) Camera app, I've noticed I can use Google Camera after installing microG, without giving the later any kind of permission or enabling it to actually use any Google service.

La UE debería plantearse incentivar el desarrollo de un core RISCV para mantener un grado razonable de independencia tecnológica estratégica. cc/ @astro_duque

Rosalía es el ejemplo perfecto de millenial pagando la deuda cultural española adquirida por las generaciones anteriores. Y sin complejos. 👏💃💪

La gente que se queja a la vez de las malas condiciones laborales de los científicos, y del dinero que mueven industrias como la farmacéutica, tiene un cacao mental importante.

BTW, Google broke AOSP for walleye on r16. I suspect they merged crosshatch into the tree without testing older devices.

Luckily, the workaround is simple:

rm -fr hardware/qcom/sdm845

Google's Pixel 2 is a great example of the company's bipolarity.

It's one of the few devices that allow users using their own encryption keys for AVB2 verification.

But, at the same time, this feature is barely documented. Why do they spend money on a feature only to hide it?
