Hello everyone !

📢 🔴 URGENT 🔴

An awesome software is dying, because its #developper has not time anymore to care of it.

It's an alternative of Adobe AfterEffect : Natron (

Please, can Mastodon community search for a C++ dev, which want to maintain it ? or search for a company which work with free software ? It's very important.

Boost very appreciated

Thanks in advance for your contribution !

Does the government really have no control over cryptos? I don't think so.

There is no alternative to Microsoft's Media Feature Pack. You waste your time installing Windows 10 N.

I wonder if data collection continues after a device, any device, has been phased out and no more official support is given.

Nearly lost my Nokia 2 to a forgotton lock screen pin. It seems Master Reset doesn't clear everything, you have to run mount /system option also and then reset.

Who to follow on #Mastodon? We are trying to give new users a better start and selected a couple of profiles for #privacy related topics:

I'd bet you liked watching over wall into your neighbor's yard to see what they do or what they own, or that one time a domestic worker locked their key inside the yard and you had to climb the wall.

Explain to me how any Government of any country would not do that after they set up checkpoints in your neighborhood and confiscate your weapons.

Locked myself out on my own phone after forgetting a new lock screen pin. Tried master reset but no use. Damn.

For us humans on ground zero, it would look like the sun has always shined like it did before and after today. But on the surface it's a totally different story.

Linux is a really good privacy-friendly alternative to Windows, and nowadays it's easy for anyone to use. Modern Linux works just like Windows or Mac, you do not need tech skills to use it.

If you want to buy a computer with Linux preinstalled, there's a really good site that lists vendors around the world:

(One of the major vendors, @Purism , is on the Fediverse.)

Recently, I considered living without Google. The idea came up to me after reading the reflection from @switchingsocial
I agreed with SwitchingSocial's perspective. This article is my first step to say goodbye to Google. (and first step to write blog in English 😳 )

Street battle: the activists fighting to save their neighbourhood from the tech giants

"Facebook, Google and Amazon have not just colonised the internet: their hubs, campuses and offices are taking over huge sections of cities around the world. But campaigners from New York to Toronto and Berlin are fighting back"

Solidarity from Berlin to SF to Toronto to Rennes to NYC! <3

Google Maps suggest you give good stars to your favorite supermarket you always visit.

I can't imagine how something that follows you around would care about your privacy.

Don't anyone think that Google's Photos app is deceptive? How many Android users are aware that it is more than just a standard Gallery app.
