Is this telegram client in the @snapcraftio store official and trusted? It seems to pass all checks, except that it doesn't have the green tick mark ✅ from the snap store.

Could you please help me @popey?

Politics, but dire 

Guten Tag,

gibt es eine Möglichkeit bei der SMS Tan zu bleiben? Oder gibt es eine Variante der Postbank App welche Open Source und ausserhalb der Google App Stores vorhanden ist? Open Source wäre mir wichtig da mein Handy nicht unendlich viel Speicher hat, und jeder Serviceanbieter gerne seine eigene App für die selben Funktionen auf dem Handy der Kunden sehen wuerde. Open Source ermöglicht es das Effizienter zu gestalten. Ich habe keine Google Dienste und sehe keinen Grund für Online Banking mit Google zu kooperieren. Ich bin ein Student und würde mir ungern ein 15€ Gerät kaufen, welches ich auch aus Umweltschutz gruenden für unnötig erachte, was am Ende nicht mehr kann als der offene und sichere TOTP Standard. Da sie bereits bald den Wechsel zu SMS Tan vollziehen wollen, wäre eine zeitnahe Antwort wünschenswert.

Liebe Grüße

@z428 @reticuleena @khaosgrille @luricaun Weil das in die Richtung "Arme Banken, die sich nicht anders zu helfen wissen" geht. Das fand ich nicht einer Antwort würdig. ;-P
Wäre es gesetzlich geregelt, das Bank (u.a.) einen nicht zu einem US-Konzern (oder zur Akzeptierung jedweder Drittanbieter-AGB) drängen darf, fände sich da sicher sehr sehr schnell ne Lösung.

hides when you search for it in the start menu entries, while it easily brings up Office if you search .

@masoud @PlumeDev @Mastodon though my account is not closed but I myself try to avoid proprietary platform for contributing #FreeSoftware projects.
I try to motivate others to do the same

I believe the solution is to have federated git services (letting fork repo, open issue and send PR/MR independent of where your account is made. Some are working on #forgrfed project for the same goal @forgefed

A few weeks ago I posted here that the blogging platform @PlumeDev had some of its right-to-left (RTL) rendering issues fixed by @ahangarha. I myself had also fixed many little CSS issues related to for @Mastodon in the past.

Well, expect such kinds of things to happen less often in the future, since has mass-blocked many accounts of Iranians* at various levels; This applies not only to Iranian residents, but also sometimes to Iranians living abroad.

* And not only for , but also for , , , and .

The fediverse blogging platform @PlumeDev has now basic support for (right-to-left) languages like , , and 🎉 🎆 👏
Thank you @ahangarha for your important work and other developers for their nice support 😀

Mit alles. Und Schaf.

One of the things I've realized lately is how, even if you don't want to self-host your services, how incredibly cheap it is to have private communication- email, instant messenger, calendar, file hosting, etc.

All without tracking and without ads for less per month than people pay for streaming services.

In the past couple of months I have been using Replicant on a Galaxy S II phone as my daily driver and I'm impressed that it is actually usable. The best part: It comes with @fdroidorg as a system app by default so you don't need to manually update your apps all the time 😀

The only drawback with S2 was its incredibly small battery. So today I freed up my new smartphone with a faster SoC and a battery two times as big: Galaxy Note II 😀

I woke up to the drama about in the fediverse.

As I said before in [1], while I think removing local and federated timelines from their fork of is a weird (but bold) decision, I think disabling reports is outright problematic for the rest of us in the fediverse.

Now I am glad to see this move 😀. I hope @purism continues to innovate and at the same time, continues to consider feedback from the community.


Eight months ago I switched from Ubuntu to Manjaro-i3 on my main laptop because:

1. I really don't need a full blown DE. Even most of my time in Ubuntu 16.04, I was using i3.

2. I am interested in latest packages. So point release is getting outdated too fast.

3. Most importantly, because Ubuntu switched to Gnome 3.

The more I think about it, the more I like the idea behind LibremOne from @purism. We, the decentralized internet advocates, are quite far with the tech. What we desperately need is a touch of marketing, bundling, and consumer-friendliness. is doing exactly that. Bravo, and I hope them the very best of success.

I just finished Walkaway from Cory Doctorow, and it was great 😀

This is how I'd like to read my books in 2019: on paper, on any mobile app, and on any number of devices that I want. Say no to !

Even 5 years ago when I first started playing with , I was amazed by its polish and seamless functionality. By creating a single account on the box, you immediately get access to a personal blog, wiki, chat account, feed reader, VPN, and much more.

It is not perfect I know, but it has a solid offering across a broad range of applications that I haven't seen anywhere else.

If you look for a polished and capable personal home server, I highly recommend FreedomBox.

I wish @freedomboxfndn a lot of luck and success. Keep up the great work, please!


@olimex is selling the first commercially available FreedomBox. In other words, they are selling the ability to democratize the internet. #BeAPioneer and buy a #FreedomBox today.
