I'm a developer with focus in free (as in freedom) software. I am currently learning C more in depth, and planning to learn Go.
I like math and cryptography, as well as philosophy and music.
Also, I love cats.
This is my introduction :)

Installed LibreCMC in my router. Freedom in the router: check :checkmark:

Are there any XMPP groups of Parabola GNU/Linux-libre?

any people here using parabola? I've been using it for some time and I am liking it so far :parabola:
If you are more advanced at it, could you tell me some ways I could contribute to it?

What is a mastodon desktop client you recommend? FAIF obviously :stallman_thaenkin:

What gets in my tits are those worthless whinges about “nobody else uses #XMPP, so I'm going with solution X¹”

Two to tango and all that. I do not use anything else, not even in my professional role.

No WhatsApp, Facebook, tick tack, matrix, ICQ, …

No Teams, WebEx, Zoom, NetMeeting, …

No Office, slack, Skype, whatever else.

Guess what? If the mountain won't come to Mohammed…

¹ Value of X changes every three to five years.

news on the world? I was out for a couple of days

I've recently come across the Jami GNU project. Any thoughts on this? Is it considered secure by anyone of you?

Cloudfare is way too dangerous nowadays. Don't use it.

I've written a brief introduction to XMPP for non-advanced users in my blog. It's intended to be sent to new users

It's so crazy how the human body has all these tubes we call veins and arteries that connect in one point and possibilitate us to continue the experience we call "being alive".

This is among the most important media files I have saved on my computer.

slower computers, please 

I'm a computer guy, but I'm very much over fast computers. Most of your computer's resources are wasted loading ads and trackers on webpages. Video games require more and more power to deliver less interesting experiences. Don't get me started on cryptocurrency. Computers are getting increasingly complex, therefore less reliable, nearly impossible to repair, wasteful, and devastating to the environment. We need #slowcomputers and more #retrocomputing

People that use please explain why you use it and not . Besides the most common argument: it's more widely used.
Anyways, I'm still glad it's not Whatsapp or Telegram.

antisurveillance tip 

now that the last remnants of messaging privacy are seriously threatened, may i suggest: learn sign language and only send signed video messages from now on. you can be sure that no agency can automate reading them.

of course, if everyone did this, agencies for sure would try to develop methods to mass-surveil them. this would have the side effect of making all technology more accessible to deaf people, so consider that a gain.
