I'm looking for an open source alternative to #Evernote. I've tried #Joplin, #Simplenote, #Turtl, and a few others but none of them quite cut it. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Did you know that your data on any product is available globally with a public URL? No password, no security, anything. Go to your google dashboard and request to download your data, after that you will see a JSON file for each photo you have, each message you sent or for anything you use inside google ecosystem from purchasing products to YouTube search history. You will see that public URL in that JSON file

@ParadeGrotesque you can't make Microsoft go away. They're the most valuable company in the world. So your choices are to encourage them and appreciate their open source efforts, or to continue to disparage them. Which of these options encourages the engineers at Microsoft to keep pushing for open source? Reard them for the good they've done so they keep doing it. They can't un-open the things they've open sourced. They've made permanent and meaningful contributions to open source and I'm thankful to them for it.

@Alter I got your idea, I agree, but you're spamming my timeline. What about you stop and next time something fishy happens we will engage in a conversation?

NixOS is the first distro where the fonts look good. Nearly macOS level. What magic is that

So if I decide to migrate to a distro which actively supports KDE, which distro should I pick?

Your typical desktop or laptop has a lot of resources to spare. Your typical mobile device has none. Mobile promotes a client/server mainframe/dumb-term architecture for fundamental technical reasons.

Huh. This article makes an interesting case that it was the ballpoint pen, not computers, that brought about the decline of handwriting. getpocket.com/explore/item/how

Anytime you're doing something that makes you feel productive when you're really just slacking off and not directly contributing to your most important goal, it's not #productivity but #fauxductivity.

Example: bingeing on just-in-case knowledge, checking email, reading the #news, trying productivity tools, organizing your desktop, etc.
