I find it amusing that #Brave blocks trackers and cross site scripts from nearly every website that advertises with them
Signal created targeted ads for Instagram that show the personal data that Facebook collects about you and sells access to.
They were blocked.
You can't post with this app, but I don't care. If we can't tear down facebook, we can at least make it accessible
My wife loves Instagram. It's her only social media. She has a private account. Like her, many of her friends have left facebook, but many still cling to their instagram.
I made a private account and only followed a handful of people. It didn't take long for it's algorithm to basically abuse me. As I was about to delete again, I found this little gem.

No tracking, no ads, no suggested content. Just the people I follow. #instagram
Piwigo is a great way to store and share photos on the web. It runs well enough for me on cheap shared hosting, too.
Amazing what a difference having something actually really important to care about changes your perspective on things. :)
It's astounding how much a newborn staggers your ability to give a damn about much else. If I'm not holding my child I'm either doing chores or squeezing in what little work I can do in that I can.
I ended up putting my SIM & SD card back into my broken old smart phone because if you're too busy to find a computer, or only have one hand, it's the fastest way to stay on top of communication or coordinating efforts. Not even my passion for using free software matters as much, and yet, I am happy.
Hey, anyone in Canada or the UK want to do some paid #translation #work, English to #French? It wouldn't be much, maybe some 3-5 hours of work per month, technical translation of #GreenhouseGas and #sustainability terminology.
The size of the task per month could vary and you would bill for your time, not per word or page.
And yes, I will probably go to hell for this.
