#FreeSoftware has a lot of potential in the developing world.

In rural India, 12 villages use #FreedomBox to host free digital services. Activists have re-purposed old computers into FreedomBoxes, mounted them on posts, and served entire villages with free wi-fi and digital services.

These rural #FreedomBox networks got covered in the Times of India.

It'd be cool if in response to Google's ban, Huawei started making Linux-compatible phones and tablets. With the market share they have, that might make a big difference. Apparently, they have been working on their own "Kirin" OS, also Linux based.

Here's another reason I don't like and don't use phone number based services like WhatsApp and Signal.

@switchingsocial Hello there buddy, do you have any alternatives to to recommend?

@rugk Hi! I really like your "Simplified Federation" Firefox extension. Do you think it would be feasible to add support for multiple instances? I guess it would require some kind of UI that lets the user choose which one of the their instances they want to use every time there's an interaction. What do you think?

@rgggn

just to break that down for today's lucky 10K:

1) ensure local clone of incumbent project is current

2) make new, empty repo on target site

3) add new location as a remote to local clone

4) push from local clone to new remote

5) revel in your awesome new power

I've just spent +100€ on a new battery for my Dell , which isn't even two years old (and was expensive as hell). 🤮

I should have bought a laptop from instead.

You might have noticed that I introduced a cache feature. Cached statuses have small refresh icons that allow to update the value in db.
If you have issues don't hesitate to submit them, I am still working on that feature. Also, you should be able to read your home timeline offline.

Finally moved my work laptop to . No idea why it took me so long – I've been using it at home for years. It feels so good.
