@xerz :thinkeyes: what software are we seeing in this picture, and does it work well? I have an ipad too, and wondered if this sort of thing exists

@esi I successfully implemented support for UP push notifications in Nheko (the Matrix client) and demonstrated it fully working on a Pinephone with Arch Linux a few months ago, but that code hasn't been committed anywhere due to it not being any better than proof-of-concept quality. I also don't have a lot of bandwidth to really work on much of anything at the moment.

Tech details: UnifiedPush basically defines the API that any app on the phone and an (arbitrary) push notification daemon on the phone can use, by which the app can register to receive push notifications from that daemon (and be "woken up" to handle the notification even when it isn't running).

We've defined this API, and I have also been working on one such daemon, that uses your Gotify server for the server-side part. Still WIP though. github.com/UnifiedPush/gotify-

@esi For number 4, we've (unifiedpush.org) been working on bringing the possibility for push notifications to mobile OSes such as pmOS and so on. However, push notifications in your favorite apps is still some way off from being a reality (except on Ubuntu Touch, which has always had its own push notification system).


This song gets me in one of those moods that can't be described using words, and I love it

(also as a bonus fact, my dad played on this album)

@RobinWils @SuperDicq the four freedoms say nothing about whether software must contain the ability to do certain things. If Tusky doesn't come with the ability to connect to gab, that's not a violation of any license, because nobody has ever *forbidden* anyone from connecting to gab using tusky, and forbidden anyone from modifying the source code of the app to add the ability to connect to that server.

Here are some pictures and illustrations of various versions of this TV.

I'm *really* pumped about it.

@jonne Well not elaborate, simply that causation causes correlation

correlation does not mean causation, it's actually causation that leads to correlation

One of the lesser known facts about Julius Cesar is that he never said "Thank you" in his entire life.

There's many theories trying to explain this mystery. The leading one is: he did not speak English.

@Seirdy I'm using a Fairphone 3. It fits all the requirements, and I use it with LineageOS and microG, which gets about 20 hours of battery life in my normal daily usage.

Dear #foss developers, you encounter an open source project and feel enticed to check out their community. Discord is mentioned as the only place where the discussions take place.

Your reaction?

A - Great, I already have an account anyway.
B - Ok, I'd be willing to join if the project is interesting enough.
C - Not ok, I will not be part of those discussions.
D - Other (see comment)

Boosts appreciated (research for blog post).

@amici Now that we've swung to a more left-wing government compared to this previous one, I'm sure they had a goal to get their version of the reform looking clean and finally get it done, probably partially to strike a PR blow against the previous government. But at least this time, nothing seems egregiously bad about the reform that actually went through. Time will tell how it works in practice though.
