OMG, am dying!!!

Someone used the bug GitHub refused to fix, that allows you to add a commit to a repo you don’t control... to upload YouTube-dl to the DMCA request repo on GitHub.

Big release of #kcaldav 0.2.0. This has almost no front-facing changes but the source code has been drastically restructured as described in github.com/kristapsdz/kcaldav. Looking to contribute to a project? kCalDAV isn't just C: it also has a web front-end (HTML, CSS, JS) that could use some modernity!

ZOOM's password has maximum of 32 characters and they have a typo in the error message... wtf?

Android 11: If an app hasn't been used for a while, permissions will auto-reset. 😟

I just finished a modular feed reader with a decentralized backend (fancy name for a set of files) supporting gemini and gopher feeds

This weekend there's an exhibition by @mondstern at @topio in Berlin displaying 104 pictures of (mostly) apps from #FDroid! ❤️

Termux replaced a lot of my useless apps with the same tools I use on desktop.

ncdu instead of Storage Analyzer
youtube-dl instead of NewPipe (partially)
git instead of mgit
openssh/mosh instead of ConnectBot
mosh into a server with catgirl under tmux instead of
pass instead of Password Store
vim instead of QuickEdit

It is not as convenient as regular phone apps can be. I wonder if it is a good idea to create GUI wrappers for these tools. I may try it when I get my . Android is a toy, Linux is a real OS.

When publishing things online, please prefer text over audio! Because if I want to listen to your page, I can convert your text into audio. Not so much the other way around...

Besides, it saves bandwidth!

If I want to block an instance, I can do it. If the admin of my instance wants to protect me from content on an instance, they can do it. Isn't that enough? Do we really need apps to choose harmful instances for us?
I think it would be okay if @Tusky added a dialog on first start which allowed users to select instances which they want to block with descriptions why Tusky thinks they are bad.
I am okay with Tusky for now, because I don't want to see people from gab, but apps shouldn't decide what people want to see. Isn't that behaviour too similar to other non-federated social media?

Have you ever heard of the mailto:?attach=~/… parameter? It allows to include arbitrary files on disk. So, why break PGP if you can politely ask the victim's mail client to include the private key? (1/4)

Nothing can spam you as effectively as real people. ​ 🙂​
