@jonny yeah, matrix has been doing some awesome stuff. Matrix bridges are pretty great too!

@aral at least community is a lot of fun?

Also: 🏴‍☠️?

Remember our toot about Nextcloud synchronisation? 🎉 Seems we have a winner!
🔄 With the merging of github.com/AntennaPod/AntennaP it will be possible to sync AntennaPod with a gPodder 'server' in your own Nextcloud instance.

Will be available in AntennaPod 2.5!

@tadzik @Bubu most of the problem is scale, fairphone just doesn't sell enough units to make them cheaper, though of course slave labour is also cheaper than paid labour.

@athairbirb I have a Logitech g502, and it is supported by libratbag/piper, which allows me to configure it fine from Linux.

@aral are we sure it is actually the calyxos folks? GrapheneOS does have a lot of haters, but my read on it is that this does not overlap with the actual core calyxos devs. Of course the haters would look for an alternative, and thus part of them end up using calyxos, but as far as I can tell the core team is not involved.

Then again, I have used neither grapheneOS nor calyx, I just run lineageos.

@Coffee one line with a "\" and an "n" between "hello" and "there", clearly

@Bubu note that if you host your own server the vulnerability is fairly limited.

Here, a screenshot you've been all asking for! (please retoot or I will get fired)

I made a new release of Polyjuice Client, my @matrix client library for #Elixir. You can see the changelog at gitlab.com/uhoreg/polyjuice_cl…

What should really be worrying you (and policymakers, if only they carried the gene that expresses the ability to have a clue) is that we are effectively limited in choice to two trillion-dollar US corporations for the everyday technology that has unfiltered access to our most intimate and personal thoughts, the power to mediate our reality, determine what we can and cannot say, bound our agency, and redefine the boundaries of personhood itself in the digital network age. Who needs an army, eh?

At the end of the day, every little thing helps, but this is going to take a damn sight more than metal straws and EVs. Global-scale energy production, logistics, transportation, forest and land management are all MASSIVE issues that need to be fixed, amongst others. These problems are bigger than individuals and need global cooperation. I am sick and tired of watching major world players do absolutely nothing, as they would apparently rather line their pockets than be even remotely responsible.

Today is a good day to be angry. There’s no better time to get angry. Some of the damage is done, but there’s still a lot we can, should and must do to slow climate change. Those who are most responsible need to be held accountable for their part and replaced, by any means necessary, with people who have the vision and willpower to do the right thing. We’re watching our planet crumble in front of us on a daily basis. This can’t wait until tomorrow or next week. Big problems need solving TODAY.

Today I am angry. Furious, even. It doesn’t matter how many alarm bells ring about climate change or environmental destruction. The people in corporate and government power structures have, for too long, prioritised profits and shareholder value over stopping their destructive practices. They have ignored scientists who have warned us all FOR DECADES about the catastrophic effects of their business models. Individuals have been left with the insurmountable task of trying to saving the planet.

@Bubu @Coffee the other legitimate option is probably the fairphone 3 with /e/ or (if you prefer without microg) lineageOS. It's a bit less deblobbed, and the FP 3 is a bit expensive for its specs, but at least you can repair it, order parts, and it's slave labour free.
