Seit dem #Huawei "debakel" heulen alle rum, es gäbe ja keine Alternativen und bla bla ... Bei heise hab ich sogar in den Kommentaren so was gelesen wie "ein Ubuntu für Smartphone wäre nicht schlecht" ... Hallo! Kommt mal unter euren Steinen hervor und interessiert euch für das, was ihr benutzt! Da gibt es schon Alternativen: Sailfish und Ubuntu Touch z.B. ... Aber Alternativen werden ja gerne so lange ignoriert, bis sie wieder eingestellt werden, weil jeder mit dem Strom schwimmen will 🙄
EU elections - please vote! Show more
EU election season begins today as the UK goes to the polls (most other EU members vote on Sunday).
Please, please use your vote 🙏
It takes you just a second but in the current climate it will have perhaps decades of deep consequences.
Elections matter. Please make your voice heard, however small you might think it is 👍
The only thing that's still really missing in that whole space is fedeartion between all the project hosting instances out there, so you don't need the network effect of gitlab.com or github anymore.
I think gitlab will be happy to integrate this (there's a lot of talk in their issue trackers about this already). I wonder if github ever would. It could totally undermine their position as the "place where everyone already is", because that wouldn't matter anymore.
Not only do I find it more intuitive to use by now (and github is slowly copying features that gitlab introduced years ago), it also really makes a difference that the development of gitlab itself is open.
Got an bug/feature request? Jump into the issue tracker and help shape the discussion about it. Or someone might even jump in and provide an implementation for it.
I'm *really* not happy about the #Github #Sponsors project (https://github.com/sponsors).
It'll bind a lot of open source project much more strongly to github's closed, proprietary ecosystem if that's where they have any chance of getting some money.
And most people are celebrating this move by github 😢.

It's still on Google Play, but the developer is charging a couple of dollars for it.
It is ok for developers to charge for their work.
Paying people for their work is a much more ethical model than trackers and ads.
Wow, this really captures a lot of my thoughts pretty much perfectly:

Microsoft patcht "wormable" Sicherheitslücke in Windows XP, 7 und Windows 2003.
Schwachstelle lässt sich über das weit verbreitete Remote Desktop Protokoll (RDP) ausnutzen. Da werden wohl einige Systeme bald die »Grätsche« machen:
- Keine vorige User-Authentifizierung notwendig
- Ausführen von beliebigen Code auf Zielsystem
Das ist eine 11 auf der Skala bis 10.
as a follow up post, here's a list of alternatives to adobe software. source attached.
@Tusky the disappearing toots bug is not fixed yet, right?
Somehow it still feels more natural writing sql queries to me than working with #SQLAlchemy orm.
For more complex things I tend to write the SQL and then try to translate it to some SQLAlchemy construct... 🤔
I feel this isn't really the intended usage scenario.
Are you not feeling motivated to go outside for a healthy walk? How about downloading the application StreetComplete from @fdroidorg and start helping out OpenStreetMap by adding missing data about the places around you!
I started today and it made my daily walks a lot more fun! It also motivates me to walk even more and visit new places that I wouldn't visit otherwise. :)
