Let's just hope for a clean sheet at least, given the team...

Ozil "sick" again... Oh boy... This game will be rubbish...

So #FollowFriday. Much alternative. Wow. :blobsurprised:

🌐 @torproject Tor Project: Volunteer network for protecting privacy online

📞 @Jami Jami: Free open alternative to #Skype, uses peer-to-peer instead of servers

🤖 @gdroid G-Droid: An alternative user-friendly way of browsing @fdroidorg

🕹️ @itchio Itch.io: DRM-free indie games store and community site

⛏️ @Minetest Minetest: Free open alternative to #Minecraft

It’s rather funny how governments that have always wanted backdoors (for „lawful interception“) in telco infrastructure are now suddenly claiming to be afraid of #huawei having backdoors in their products.

#HelloWorld! As active members of the open-source community, ProtonMail supports open source projects like Mastodon. Mastodon’s decentralized nature reminds us of the days when the Internet was free and not under the control of a few monopolist giants. Our followers can look forward to toots about service updates, new projects, and news on privacy.

I think that Linux needs better support for pdf editing, it really lacks a product like Acrobat Reader (yes, it is also available on Linux but it's not opens source).

Today I read what basically seemed like a hit-piece on Mastodon to warn people away from it because of internal disputes.

Yet here I am, enjoying my feed of #Linux and tech fans, seeing no adverts, not having random tweets promoted that I couldn't give a rats arse about, not having to *for the tenth time* tell it to order my toots normally...the list goes on.

Mastodon is lovely.

Best way to move instances on #Mastodon:

On your OLD account:

1. Export your follows, mutes and blocks: go to Settings, then Data Export, then download the CSV files (you do NOT need to request an archive to do this!)

2. Set your old account to redirect to the new one: go to Settings, then Edit Profile, then "Move To A Different Account" (at bottom of screen)

On your NEW account:

3. Upload your follows, mutes and blocks: go to Settings, then Import, then upload the CSV files

If you want to get some great app recommendations you really should follow @fdroid_lurker!

Also make sure to take a look at the backlog of that account.

To #fdroid users. #Mastalab 1.63.0 is available, you can now connect your #Peertube account(s).

- if you have difficulties for watching videos don't hesitate to change the mode in settings.
- you can follow/unfollow accounts and channels, rate videos and write/remove comments.

Upload feature should come at the end of the week.

Gentoo is now also on mastodon.

I must say, that , probably the only open source keyboard available for android (except for the AOSP one), has improved a lot recently. With the latest release they added the 'chamaleon' theme option, the main color of the keyboard changes based on the app you are using. If you never tried it before I suggest you give it a go! You can find it on -droid as well on the play store (where I think is updated more frequently)

This is, frankly, scaring. How can be this legal? Even if you don't have an account, Google and Facebook know everything about you privacyinternational.org/appda
