There is a vulnerability in the Plasma desktop that KDE developers are currently working to patch. The details are here.

For the moment avoid downloading .desktop or .directory files and extracting archives from untrusted sources.

Also, if you discover a similar vulnerability, it is best to send an email security@kde.org before making it public. This will give us time to patch it and keep users safe before the bad guys try to exploit it.

Parents: are your kids exchanging vi keymaps?

wtf: one word forward, then to the first 'f'

LOL: insert a new line with a single 'L' just above bottom of screen.

fml: move to one character past the next 'm'

tbh: move to two characters before the next 'b'

dtf: delete to 'f'

Matrix Telegram bridge

We're now hosting a bridge between our #Matrixserver and #Telegram.
While due to the way the bridging works, some advanced functionality like read receipts and typing notifications is only available for users on the #Feneashomeserver, most of the functionality is available to any Matrix user in the wide network. By hosting a public bridge we hope to help a bit with the weight #t2botis currently pulling.
More information and usage instructions in our forum: talk.feneas.org/t/telegram-bri friendica.feneas.org/display/7

If you have Facebook "like" buttons embedded on your website, it could make you liable for breaking GDPR privacy laws, even if it's Facebook doing the illegal stuff:

theregister.co.uk/2019/07/29/e

You can protect your site from legal liability (and protect your users' privacy) by removing all Facebook like buttons.

Please tell your employers/organisations about this ruling, it may help convince them that Facebook is toxic (or at least that embedded like buttons are toxic).

I'm rooting really hard for the Pinephone to be decent and actually make it to market soon. I'm really liking the sounds of it. Specs are good enough. Emmc and bootable microsd slot! USB C! 3000mah replaceable battery!

The only good thing in the world today is that I learned about "banana pose" which is just something seals do when they feel safe and content.
Just happy seal things.

If you are thinking about joining the #Matrix, please do not use the Matrix.org homeserver. It has some disadvantages like disabled presence status and it is not good for the #federation at all to have one big instance where most of the users are bundled. Take a look at hello-matrix.net/public_server for alternatives or even better, set up your own #synapse, which is pretty straightforward e.g. using @yunohost #selfhosting

@paulakreuzer @switchingsocial @paulakreuzer Another recommendation: Street Complete. It lets you contribute data to open street map by walking around the city and noting down the type of roads, speed limits, accessibility features in restaurants/shops, names of streets and lots of other stuff
