@Wolf480pl that was a sarcasm, that's why I put it into <quote> πŸ˜‚ In fact my point is that generally people end up arguing with each other about things that probably don't matter or are not that relevant for everybody

@Wolf480pl it genereally depends :)

But in programming-related solutions one that works early is better than one implemented later, because <quote>human time is more valuable than computer time</quote

The most productive way of making decisions is to remove other people from decision process. The more I do my work, the more I get convinced that it is the only right way.

Because when you don’t do it, you end up arguing and discussing all the time

People end up thinking there's nothing outside the walled garden, that Google or Facebook *are* the Internet.

@kev @xorowl that is totally the thing I meant. It is very big irony that open source project give you less privacy that proprietary one.

And that also is point, which shows that if project maintainer does not care about some things, open source model does not remove the issue.

Of course you can *make* Android more safe for you, but it takes much effort to achieve, sometimes including having software an experience of less quality.

Watched video showing the data collection of an Android by @bryanlunduke , and it feels frightening... iPhones ecosystem that is very closed is way more friendly to guys who use it than β€œopen source” Android.

I think the world is very screwed up nowadays. Yeah, I know that they collect those data for reason, but that is very creepy for me.

If I had a penny for every time someone says that since "MacOS" and "Linux (specifically Ubuntu)" are both Unix-like it must be easy to port apps between them...

@vickylai why? That is so fun to try get things working after you messed everything up πŸ˜‚

Watched last episode from Rick and Morty. Damn, that rock πŸ˜„ Hope there will be new episodes in 2019

After some time of self-hosting several services (RSS feed reader, wallabag, email), I've got that generally they can be replaced with cheaper and less effort raspberry pi based solutions

@kungtotte looks pretty 😁 Did you hack the awesome panel yourself, or it is some config you found somewhere at the internet?

I'm going to start more aggressively unfollowing/muting people who participate and/or fuel drama. Life's to short for that kind of thing.

@brandon canonical is not responsible for this... It’s pure Gnome solution

I have been proposed to learn and join the technology wide adoption in company. I have a mentor, several tasks, month and a half and some company budget to get from zero to middle.

What should I start from? Need kind of

P.S. so excited to have such opportunity

"Microsoft is officially giving up on an independent shared platform for the internet. By adopting Chromium, Microsoft hands over control of even more of online life to Google. [..] If you care about what’s happening with online life today, take another look at Firefox. It’s radically better than it was 18 months ago β€” Firefox once again holds its own when it comes to speed and performance. "


GitLab Auto Devops is lame. After several weeks of figuring out how to start it working, I got punished by manager and built all the scripts in a day, without pain or suffering.
