Seems a bit too much to continue sharing every new 1k...

Main motivation for regularly posting our MRR was to show that you can grow a startup being open source, transparent, privacy-first and by only doing ethical marketing.

I hope we've inspired you to consider a similar path as it can be done! See you at perhaps 20k (hopefully)🤞

if your cat often bothers you at your computer and walks all over your keyboard, it's because they're trying to join you and do what you're doing. It's a sign of affection! One way to mitigate disruption without pushing away your cat is by buying your cat their own laptop and plugging it in next to yours. make sure the laptop has wifi, a VPN, and access to the darkweb

I fix machines whose address lines run through a 40-pin connector covered in rusty mouse piss and whose unfused bridge rectifiers are a legitimate fire risk and they're more stable and reliable than modern desktop computers, seriously

⚠️ WARNING
Do NOT install #NewPipe through the Samsumg Galaxy Store!

A copy of #newpipe is currently distributed through the Samsung Galaxy Store by a third party. The package id of that version is identical to the officiail one (org.schabi.newpipe), but the signing keys differ.
Surprisingly, users running an outdated version recieve a notification to update their installed version with the one uploaded in the Galaxy Store.

Microsoft will adopt Google Chrome's controversial Manifest V3 (ad-friendly tweaks) in Edge. This kind of thing is precisely why we need to have more than a single browser engine implementation, and why Firefox is more important than ever.
