/e/OS = #privacy by design, which makes it an exception on the mobile market.

That is what academic research found, comparing data sent by Samsung, Xiaomi, Huawei, Realme, LineageOS and /e/OS smartphones.

I think that people largely forget that a forge (i.e. somewhere you thrown your code on it) should be a read-only experience.

The interactiveness of it, should happen on open protocols (and therefore on any medium you want) like email.

I bricked my phone by connecting the jack to a faulty mixer. I want to bang my head against the wall for the next twenty minutes

@edsu wow I love the opening statement talking about web, email, RSS and XMPP in the past tense.

I've barely been paying attention to this but it looks to me like it's some blockchain people using discord to build a new Twitter, so with that trifecta of shitty technologies as a foundation I can't imagine anything worthwhile coming out the other end.

Completely aside from the whole reinventing the wheel aspect of it.

The people arguing the most for silencing people they don't like forget that their group was the one being silenced not too long ago: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McCarthy

Care lettrici e cari lettori,

benvenuti in questa pagina di recensioni critiche di fanfiction orribili!

Io, le recensitrici e gli altri recensori del nostro gruppo ci occupiamo di stroncare ficcyne squallide del sito italiano EFP e di Wattpad, attaccando quelle che violano i regolamenti dei siti e/o trattano temi seri e tragici in modo estremamente irrispettoso e superficiale.

Insieme, gestiamo un blog su Wordpress, Demoni di EFP:

demonidiefp.wordpress.com/

Ne posteremo i link anche qui su Mastodon: buona lettura e buona indignazione!

They made an incredibly complex and ahead-of-its-time OS. Too good for Microsoft to pull off. They weren’t even putting in all of their ideas (the most ambitious but complex ones were left on a sort of wishlist called Blackcomb), but they still wanted to have an OS with the following features ready for 2004:

  • .NET: A virtual machine in which apps didn’t need to worry about memory or concurrency
  • WinFS: Semantic filesystem with complex queries to manage everything with
  • Avalon: An XML-based user interface layer that allowed to dynamically, visually design UIs — even the desktop
  • Indigo: A network stack that allowed for easy network IPC with XML, allowing to further connect apps beyond WinFS

it was way too much for the Windows team, and eventually, they had to scrap tons of code and reset in August 2004

Entering someone's instance, specially if it is small, is like entering someone else's home tbh. You should keep your manners to the extent you know the poeple in there, know your place. Also, not be angry if they show you the door

#plutonem is a #terminal graphics #library for #C.

#Pluto provides an interface for displaying graphics on the terminal using pixels. Graphics are displayed using Braille Unicode characters, with special color mixing used to make colors seem more precise. Pluto is simple to use and provides several examples.
