My own app PassUI for password management - https://code.smolnet.org/micke/passui
Installed latest #mobian on my #pinephone today, and it is very close to being a viable daily driver for me now. I have all the apps I need now apart from some more or less mandatory proprietary apps related to identification and banking in Sweden (BankID, Swish). I can keep an android phone around on my desk for those I guess and keep this puppy in the pocket from now on :).
I'm not really a fan of Fridman's interviewing style (nor the choice of guests he makes lately), but I completely missed this wonderful chat with Donald Knuth:
What a lovely, brilliant human being that guy is.
andrew lee just seized over 700 channels on freenode because they mentioned libera.chat in their topic.
This includes projects like openbsd, wikimedia, FOSDEM, etc.
https://archive.is/uHw1g shows 720 channels that match what is being checked.
here's an example log: https://gist.github.com/pushcx/ab2a1d5b1d18e964c581ef18ccb3a79f
boost this if you care about foss in any way.
Last week, I was thrilled to see Zodiak's "Sermons" being reissued on vinyl. This week, I'm less than thrilled to see it'd cost freaking $25 to ship the darn piece of plastic to Croatia.
Luckily, the digital version ships for free, and the remaster sounds amazing. It's a great piece of music deserving of more attention!
SCI-HUB NEEDS YOUR HELP!
Do you have a few dozen gigabytes of free diskspace and a machine that can seed it via #bittorrent?
You can help save an unbelievable trough of scientific knowledge from disappearing behind the elites' paywalls!
Spread the word and seed till you bleed – for the betterment of humanity!
I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.
Assuming you don't do any platform-specific shenanigans and have consistent versions of GTK on the phone and your machine, it's very likely that you can build & test the app on your desktop — natively. No emulators, no VMs.
Yay, free software!
My ebook reader is mostly charged.
Charged enough for me to start loading it with books at least.
I'd like suggestions for fiction or nonfiction stories, please.
Ideally, things that are self published, CC licenced, or in the public domain.
I read a lot of science fiction, humor, and adventure stories. I like pulps and stuff. I've been reading a lot of creative non-fiction recently, and historical novellas.
My interests, in no particular order: physics, programming (esp. API design), music (esp. weird), left-leaning politics.
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
