🎂 It's been one year since switching.social posted its #Introductions, so cake for everyone! 🍰 🍰 🍰 :blobcheer: 🎉

Wow. On the one hand it seems like just yesterday, but on the other it feels like a *lot* has happened since then.

Thank you for all the suggestions and feedback, and thank you to those who make #Alternatives that give us back our privacy. You are all heroes 👍

The thief moved the picks carefully in the lock, listened intently, felt for the response, until the bolt at last sprung open. Did she hear a sigh, a faint "thanks"? Or was it just metal coming to rest on metal?
She smiled, put her tools away, and patted the lock. "My pleasure."

apparently now copied the follow this link to open a PR/MR console prompt from Gitlab when pushing to a branch. This has been a feature for at least 3 years I think.

I just stopped crossposting to twitter and unfollowed everyone there. I've never really used that account anyway.

I finally have a solution for opening (libre/MS) office documents on my Phone using only free software!

With Nextcloud, Collabora Online and the Nextcloud Android app.

Uhm. No I don't think so 😅.

Yes, @mozilla makes mistakes (same as the rest of us humans). And yes, their last one was ugly. But, still, they're the only ones in the browser business trying to do the right thing. So I'll keep using Firefox, Focus, Send, and the rest of cool software they produce.

Don't get me wrong, its fine to fork (and others), but please adhere to GPL 3, which says "The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified it, and giving a relevant date."

That's another 3 fdroid bugs fixed today. In gitlab.com/fdroid/jekyll-fdroi, powering the website, this time.

I just learned that #Mozilla will abandon #IRC. In general I think it is a good move to look for something more modern. I'm curious what they will chose at the end. For me the three main qualities would be: #free (aka Free Software), #decentralized & #open (aka open protocols) exple.tive.org/blarg/2019/04/2
