It's because GNU/Linux is not just about better quality, powerful softwares. There are certain civility one should learn when joining our community... And this video is the beginning.

Fight Against

"Digital Restrictions Management is the practice of imposing technological restrictions that control what users can do with digital media. When a program is designed to prevent you from copying or sharing a song, reading an ebook on another device, or playing a single-player game without an Internet connection, you are being restricted by DRM. In other words, DRM creates a damaged good; it prevents you from doing what would be possible without it."

Yes, The name matters. It will always remind us how and why everything started. Use the term GNU/Linux instead of "Linux" .

@ColinTheMathmo @farseen

no, you just have free DDNS systems, like no-ip. No need to pay for a FQDN.

They are DNS capable to update each 15 minutes, so if your IP changes DNS will reflect it.

There are many of them, dynamic dns are widely used….

signal app 

So Moxie backtracked and says they'll push a fix to make pins optional. Meanwhile if you don't add a pin (which the app still doesn't say will /upload your signal contact list into the signal servers/) you can't get back in to coordinate a platform switch with your secure contacts. Unless you were already using the desktop app which isn't pin locked, or somehow manage to downgrade the phone app.

Suddenly being held data-hostage -- turn over this data or you can't talk to the people, not even to arrange a different means of contact -- without any forewarning is unacceptable and a perfect example of why centralized infrastructure and single-client rather than interoperable systems are a major failure.

Oh Nice! is already in the official Parabola repos.(Not in official Arch repos though)

Finally the moment is here.
Parabola GNU/Linux-libre is installed.
[Migration from Arch]

Next step would be Parabola(open-rc) but I'll do it later.
