first closed sourced their server and now rolling out their own on @signalapp feels like a betrayal. I think all centralized systems suffer from this kind of downfall. Remember once upon a time was also the good one too

Everytime I visit Walgreens can't help but notice you'll need to pass through aisles of cigarettes, alcohol and other junk food to be able to visit pharmacy. One stop shop... First grab the junk then some pills. 😄

Got my first 💉 shot today from a nearby town :awesome: .
It was very well organized 👏. It was a drive through and was quicker than getting a coffee.
Bracing for side effects 🤞.

🇺🇸 I dared putting it live: my repo browser should now be 3 times as fast (at least), less memory hungry, much better in finding your apps (full-text search), and some more. Please report if you find some issues I missed!

🇩🇪 Ich war so wahnsinnig und hab das Update soeben ausgespielt: Mein Repo-Browser sollte jetzt mindestens 3x so schnell sein, weniger Speicher fressen, bessere Suchergebnisse liefern (Volltextsuche). Etwaige Probleme bitte melden!

Available for download via @IzzyOnDroid repo. F-droid and other stores might take about a week to update. Let me know how you like it.

@be @binyamin A list of data a program *doesn't* collect is just misleading. A list of things it *does* collect is what's important, and that's the concern.

WhatsApp also doesn't collect hair samples and retina scans. That doesn't make it private because that doesn't change what it *does* collect.

Also, data collection != storing logs. It can find out who you're in contact with and send the data "person 0xfacd3f just contacted person 0xd823be" to Facebook, Facebook can feed that data into its training models, and then discard it. The fact that they said WA doesn't "keep logs" instead of "share data" is basically a confession that it still collects the data and uses it to build a profile of you.

Weekend is almost upon us. Remember to clean up all your merged branches before you shut your laptops.

$ git checkout main
$ git branch --merged | awk '$1 != "*" {print $NF}' | xargs -n 1 git branch -d
