There is a vulnerability in the Plasma desktop that KDE developers are currently working to patch. The details are here.
For the moment avoid downloading .desktop or .directory files and extracting archives from untrusted sources.
Also, if you discover a similar vulnerability, it is best to send an email firstname.lastname@example.org before making it public. This will give us time to patch it and keep users safe before the bad guys try to exploit it.
Matrix Telegram bridge
We're now hosting a bridge between our #Matrixserver and #Telegram.
While due to the way the bridging works, some advanced functionality like read receipts and typing notifications is only available for users on the #Feneashomeserver, most of the functionality is available to any Matrix user in the wide network. By hosting a public bridge we hope to help a bit with the weight #t2botis currently pulling.
More information and usage instructions in our forum: https://talk.feneas.org/t/telegram-bridge/120 https://friendica.feneas.org/display/76158462-265d-4355-1b93-d3b172154732
CERN: Migrating to open-source technologies and taking back control using open software.
My brother once asked me if there was a function to produce a calendar grid from a list of dates in Google Sheets. I replied with a single-cell formula that took in a list of dates and outputted a calendar. It used SEQUENCE(), REGEXMATCH(), and a double-nested ARRAYFORMULA(), and it locked up the browser for 15 seconds every time it ran. I think he learned a lot about asking me things.
If you are thinking about joining the #Matrix, please do not use the Matrix.org homeserver. It has some disadvantages like disabled presence status and it is not good for the #federation at all to have one big instance where most of the users are bundled. Take a look at https://www.hello-matrix.net/public_servers.php for alternatives or even better, set up your own #synapse, which is pretty straightforward e.g. using @yunohost #selfhosting
@email@example.com @firstname.lastname@example.org @email@example.com Another recommendation: Street Complete. It lets you contribute data to open street map by walking around the city and noting down the type of roads, speed limits, accessibility features in restaurants/shops, names of streets and lots of other stuff
