Probably controvercial opinion. 

I am not a big fan of Nextcloud because I think the project has the wrong scope. I love the idea of a self hosted cloud that integrates with all of my devices but that's exactly my issue with Nextcloud. Instead of integrating it always feels to me like they want to reinvent things with own apps for everything and so on well and the essentially forced focus on the web as platform makes it feel like a platform while I want a collection of protocols not addons to it!

Oh, just my daily grandpa rant about 4 gigabytes of storage not being enough for a phone today.

I know none of the kids today have ever even *touched* anything with such a tiny amount of storage, and they program accordingly, but still. It frustrates me how wasteful everything is.

I admit I'm very much a luddite when it comes to phones. I dislike the whole "pay $1000 every year" ecosystem.

But I've finally upgraded to 2017 so I can join the human race that has F-Droid access.

Wow, I get really frustrated when I see FOSS communities falling for Microsoft's "pro open source" PR spin - note, they never say anything positive about Copyleft (the "F" in #FOSS). They are no friends of FOSS - they're a parasite. Microsoft loves OSS like a tapeworm loves a healthy digestive system - exploiting what others produce for their own (proprietary) self-interest.

If you’re in the market for a new computer, elementary OS now ships pre-installed on several laptop models and when you purchase from one of these retailers, it helps fund development!

"All of that lead to Andrew’s takeover of the network last month, and last night they decided to remove the #fsf and #gnu channels from the network, ... which means freenode is definitely no longer a network about FOSS."

Dear Ireland,

So how are bird/animal scare guns/cannons legal? Asking as the owner if an absolutely terrified and inconsolable husky.

Hey! Stop scrolling!

You! Yeah you! Stop scrolling!

I just wanna tell you that you're doing just fine. You're gonna be okay if you aren't right now. And if you are, well tomorrow's gonna be even better.

And if you need someone to talk to, send me a DM and we can discuss. I might not have any answers to what you're going through right now, but at least you won't be going at it alone.

Largest marketplace for stolen logins (1400 companies) shutdown. Added Note: Many still use duplicate #passwords across platforms (potentially fingerprinting users by password); A bit of #OSINT may reveal additional accounts. #News #Infosec #Cybersecurity

What do we want? Have everyone move to #Codeberg?
No, but it should just be okay not to be on #GitHub or #GitLab!

We're proud to offer an alternative to those who care, and thankful to everyone who joins us and other free Git hosters. You rock!
