Roku is locking down devices to extract more data from users. Big surprise: if you use proprietary software, your freedom is limited. This is a perfect reason to consider open source alternatives like #kodi.

Dear mastodon.nl users - so far maintaining mastodon.nl has just been a project I've done out of my own pocket. I would be okay to keep providing the service at cost if we can find a way to cover the hosting + domain costs (~15eu/month). Who would be willing to donate a small amount per month to keep using mastodon.nl?

Finally I have a Mastodon profile. Thanks to @mishari for reminding me about this powerful decentralized crowdsourced open source alternative.
