I’m currently DMing with T-Mobile tech support trying to find out if the Fairphone 3/3+ is compatible on their network. They’re referring me to their IMEI checker. One tiny problem - I don’t have a Fairphone 3/3+ yet because I don’t want to buy one until I know it’ll work on T-Mobile. Would any one mind DM’ing (for the sake of secrecy) me their IMEI? Or is there a generic one?

Do you use an RSS/Atom reader?

Boosts appreciated for sample size :)

Don't discount the idea of using stable distros like Debian or Ubuntu, I know that in the Linux community there's a lot of status associated with using "complex" distros like Arch, but you still shouldn't let that influence your choice of OS

Are you an Android dev who cares about free speech and the Fediverse? Here’s how you can help:

Create an F-Droid build server and submission pipeline similar to fdroiddata.
Fork the F-Droid client app and call it something else. We need the ability to control the default repos, because we’re trying to make free speech software accessible to casual users. Installing F-Droid is difficult enough.
Support the development of @husky, a Pleroma client app.

Why go so far to fork F-Droid itself? Because the project is compromised by anti-free-speech activists:

F-Droid “statement” against free speech: https://f-droid.org/en/2019/07/16/statement.html
F-Droid banned Gab: https://reclaimthenet.org/f-droid-bans-gab-app
F-Droid banned Spinster: https://blog.alexgleason.me/fdroid-banned-spinster

We need to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

There is currently no solution for a free speech app store, but we can change that.

Are there any "Lie to Me" fans here? Particularly ones who would love to be able to get the whole series on Blu-Ray? I've started a petition: change.org/p/walt-disney-relea

@kitkendrick Hello! ASIC here! You might remember me from tenforward.social :grin:

Are there any modern physical media (DVD, BD) fans here?

@admin I think there might be a problem with how cookies work here. When I go to a user's page, I can't "favorite" a toot without a popup that asks for my username, and I have to log in each time I use this instance, yet when I click on "return to Mastodon", it brings me right back to my feed.

@shadowtreecar I see you're a fellow Ryzen fan! 😃

I have a 5600X.

Which CPU do you have in your main system?
