When your Internet connection at home is 50 times faster than your company’s crappy line … Luckily I don‘t have to deal with large files that often. 😠

Just found this opensource.com article about Greenpeace becoming an 'open source' organisation. Quite ironic, since a few months ago I met one of their principal IT managers, who openly mocked our efforts to use #foss and #opensource IT in-house. Greenpeace relies 100% on Google's Gsuite. Any comparison with fair trade coffee was met with a "yeah but this is easier, we just don't care about Google's dubious side."

@pixelfed sorry, false alarm. It's just loading veery slowly. Like 15s. And there is no loading indicator. Just a blank pixelfed logo.

@pixelfed did you delete old posts? My profile is empty.

Leider kann ich heute nicht zur #np15 gehen. Deshalb hier aus der Ferne meine herzlichen Glückwünsche an @netzpolitik zum 15-jährigen bestehen. Danke für die vielen wichtige Beiträge, Texte und Recherchen.

Mozilla has announced finalist for their #IRC replacement. exple.tive.org/blarg/2019/09/0

I *really* hope they go with a free solution—hopefully community feedback will convince them of the importance of free software.

… which you'd think wouldn't be necessary, but…

#shutter #ksnip

Shutter ist für mich noch immer die Referenz an Screenshottools unter Linux, aber leider ist der letzte Commit 2 Jahre alt und das Programm ist zunehmend schwieriger zum Laufen zu bekommen.:

github.com/dniku/shutter

Ein Tool, das wesentliche Funktionen von Shutter hat und aktualisiert wird, ist KSnip:

github.com/DamirPorobic/ksnip

Es könnte zu einem echten Ersatz heranwachsen, denn aktuell fehlen nur noch Features wie "torn paper" zum vollendeten Glück.

I really want to like Zulip (, team-chat, threaded-ui Slack/Discord alternative), but for what seems like a new-ish project (<5y?) there are already so many “simple” bugs/features untackled for so long that I feel that the underlying architecture and/or the small team will be not be able to bring this software to a bright future — I know, I shouldn’t complain but rather get involved, but …

restart helped. Still: super annoying. Hope it doesn’t reappear. There seems to be no related bug in Bugzilla.

ok, it also work in a normal (non-privacy mode) window. so maybe my main window has some borked state. okay…

Help! In mouse-clicking on form field autosuggest dropdowns doesn’t activate them anymore; down+tab or down+enter works. In privacy window, mouse also works as expected. Feature? Bug? My google foo with low with this one :(
