I have realized that I have not done any proper , it seems like something you have to do here ;)

GNU+Linux user since I was 9 years old, now working with it full time on a ISP, thus fulfilling my childhood dream that basically was "working with The Internet".

Married, having 3 kiddos. Living in Sweden.
Interested in and hardware.

When it comes to politics, I rather not talk or discuss it at all, I dont even want to read about it because that only makes me mad

Got a reply from a friend to an email from 2004; now I feel old!

As #Signal has had severe problems recently due to its centralised nature, here are some decentralised libre alternatives with Fediverse accounts:

➑️ @snikket_im - Initiative to give XMPP a consistent look and feel on instances and apps, to make it more attractive to new users

➑️ @xmpp - XMPP standards foundation

➑️ @delta - Decentralised messaging through email

➑️ @matrix - Best known for the Element client

➑️ @briar - Peer-to-peer encrypted messaging

➑️ @Jami - Peer-to-peer Skype alternative


#Discourse also implementing #ActivityPub (joining the Fediverse) is great news! Thanks for sharing!

Here is a forum thread with more details on it. The linked post contains links to other related threads.

So media here in Sweden are starting to push this hyperloop shit...

@musicmatze One has to finance 36000 pieces of e-waste being shot into the atmosphere for just 6 years :)

I'll be honest, I don't (yet) understand why so many people hate #systemd. Perhaps someone could point me to some good arguments for/against? #gnu #linux #foss

90% of donations to the @libreoffice projects are coming from individuals.
Companies unfortunately do not contribute that much in economical or material way on an #OpenSource project that is the major barrier between freedom of choice and a full monopoly by Microsoft in the office productivity market.

Organisations should realise that a strong LibreOffice helps in creating a healthy competition and lower also their costs.

So, please, contribute in any way you can to help yourself.

Ifixit will be letting the world know today whether or
not the rumor that batteries are serialized on the
iPhone 18 is true. If this is true, it would mean that if
you swap a battery between one iPhone 13 to
another, even if they are iPhones they were
purchased at the Apple store with OEM batteries,
that the phone would not function properly with that
battery. I'm not talking about a warning that shows
up on the screen, but an actual honest to God
difference in how the phone draws power from the
battery. This is not the type of thing that I would
usually believe in a random post, but from the
person who brought us the dot fix... Man.

This is scary. As I say, and all these videos, every
company has a tendency to follow Apple, even the
companies that claim to be different and go out of
their way to differentiate themselves from Apple.
Even the companies that make commercials
making fun of Apple doing things like getting rid of
the headphone jack will soon have to eat their
words, because they all eventually fall in line and do
the exact same thing. This would be the line in the
sand, this is too much. This would be the beginning
of a true dystopia. Imagine a world where you could
not replace the batteries on your game boy without
Nintendo's explicit say so. Not something I thought
we would live through in our lifetime. I genuinely
hope this is not true.

So, my son apparently set ME as a background image on the computers at his school

He is turning to a tiny me,

I finally deleted my google account :blobdab:

I’ve had this account for well over 10 years and had everything there. When I became more privacy-aware I deleted a lot of stuff from it and migrated to other services but I was finally able to delete it for good :blobcat:

I’m happy and relieved!

@cinebox We are applying for a grant to be able to implement federation. Some beginning work prior to the grant has also been sponsored by @fedeproxy to have some foundational components ready if we are accepted by the grant. (Big shoutout to fedeproxy team for championing this grant writing process)
