:fdroid: I installed 39 apps from f-droid so far. Open source and adfree. I love it.

I like how easy upgrading fedora :fedora: to 32. I only needed remove one package. Because it had a python2 dependicy. python 2 is out of support so it was necessary.

Did you know that you can support this instance economically?

I have set up a liberapay acount so users can support the Linux.Pizza project.
More donors = more services and we will be able to spend more time on it.

Linux.Pizza is 95% financed by our own pocket, which means that the fate of this instance and services boils down to one person only (basically a single point of failure).

I hope that we can build a community together where everyone's input is valuable!

So i happened to look at journalctl on my VPS today and noticed a boob trying to ssh in as root...good thing firstly i don't permit password for root login's. His IP is also now being blocked...but he's still trying. Over 600 times in the last hour

Stop using #adobe products as soon as as you can. The quality of product has no relevance when anytime you may stopped from accessing it. (As it is happening in #Venezuela right now)

Stop using non-free software. You will face its evilness soon or late. Start migration to #FreeSoftware asap

@mike that and they shouldn't have been using phone numbers for account security to begin with, given how easy it is to port someone's phone number with a little bit of personal information. Using TOTP or other alternatives is far better 🔐

And yes, for those who still think online voting is "inevitable", I offer this:

Yet another reason it's a good idea to move on from Twitter (and Facebook) to a decentralized option like Mastodon.

"Twitter took phone numbers users gave for account security and used them to target ads"
