As a @gnome user I have a soft spot for GNOME Web. I gave it a full day of using today and no, it still can't be my daily driver. The biggest showstopper is no WebAuthn support since I use a hardware token to log in to many online services.

Hardware acceleration of video playback also seems to be way less optimized than in Firefox. And wow, it's really memory hungry. I opened a few tabs and it jumped up to 2 GB like nothing.

I implore any #FLOSS group using #Telegram to consider switching to @matrix for public (unencrypted) and private (#E2EE) chats, and #Fediverse services (Mastodon, Pleroma, Write.as etc) for announcements. And Discourse.

A 5-year New York Times investigation into hidden Pentagon records shows that a pattern of failures in U.S. airstrikes in the Middle East has killed thousands of civilians, many of them children. None of these records show findings of wrongdoing.

Sta cosa che ora arriva il periodo di natale e uno deve essere per forza felice, deve fare l'albero, deve fare i regali, ...mi pesa...e quest'anno pare anche più del solito.
Non è per moda o altro, è che proprio "perchè DEVO fare" cose che non mi toccano proprio?
L'unica nota positiva, 1 settimana a casa da lavoro ecco...

I switched my working laptop to #Fedora and I have to admit that I already felt in love. You can see and feel that they try to build a product ready for day-to-day use and not just a collection of great Free Software. It's are just all the small details which sum up to a great user experience especially in the combination with #Gnome.

COVID-19 

Got our boosters earlier than expected - and on the same day, saw a car on the highway with a "#COVID19 is a hoax" bumper sticker.

Sigh, this is why we can't have nice things.

Going to petition the city transportation dept to try and curb dangerous speeding near residential areas. Any advice on what methods would work?

Ideally speeding cameras, but without automated enforcement which my city doesn't seem to do that is probably toothless. Speed bumps near intersections?

We just noticed that Android 12 includes a much stricter implementation of "app-links": developer.android.com/training

Afaiu if you don't control a domain your app will never show up in the app chooser for a link to that domain. The user needs to explicitly setup your app for said domain deep in the settings.

This is super inconvenient for all the 3rd Part apps out there (i.e. NewPipe) or even alternative builds of 1st Party apps (F-Droid build of Wikipedia app).

Western Digital drives seem to require Windows to update firmware. Even though they could provide transparent updates via fwupd.org/

I've learned some of mine have dangerous firmware bugs.

reddit.com/r/linux/comments/c5

I've posted on WD forums and filed a support ticket for this.

Maybe if enough people are a PITA about this to them, they'll finally do something about it.
