#Kiwix is a project for #offline information access.

Kiwix is a tool which stores and reads content in the ZIM format. Everything from Wikis to Q&A sites can be represented in this format, allowing for Wikipedia or an important forum to be stored for offline reading when internet access is temperamental or unavailable. Kiwix also provides a hotspot and server for quickly sharing content over a local network.

What are you investing in today that will pay rewards later?

I'd rather get my news from Mastodon than the news sites!

I think folks are looking for authentic people who are not going to scorch them over. Everyone needs someone in their corner.

When I follow someone new, I almost wish they could be part of a team. . .quality people, quality posts.

This is the $1500 laptop I bought when I became a student, its screen isn't even 4K or touch, and it can't play games whatsoever. it sucks

Linux user:
This is the $50 toaster i found in the dump, after about a week of cleaning it and finding hairs from neanderthals inside, then spending a day trying to get arch to run decently on the thing with i3, it finally works and the fans sound like a jet engine. i love it

FirefoxOS was based on the premise that the best OS for a low-end phone is the web. FirefoxOS failed, but it would be amusing if KaiOS and Google's new feature phone OS proved the original assumption to actually be correct.

I stopped using Goodreads a while ago, but I still had close to 200 books reviewed there. (I was never a big user of the site.)

I've wanted to add reviews to my own website. But Goodreads doesn't really support an export function.

However, you can get a syndicated feed for any of your shelves. I created shelves based upon 100-book "pages" of books, then I downloaded the feeds.

Boom, problem solved.

Fairphone 3 review: the most ethical and repairable phone you can buy

Dutch firm asks Β£200 above the norm for a smartphone that might help change the industry
What if you could buy a phone that will last five years, can be easily repaired and is made as ethically as possible? That’s the aim of the latest Fairphone 3 – and on many counts it succeeds.
Ethically creating a phone is a lot harder than it may sound, but you have to start somewhere. Amsterdam-based Fairphone turned from an awareness campaign about conflict minerals into a phone company in 2013, and aims to source as many materials as possible in both human and environmentally kind ways.

"Facebook scans system libraries from their Android app user’s phone in the background and uploads them to their server

This is called "Global Library Collector" at Facebook, known as "GLC" in app’s code

It periodically uploads metadata of system libraries to the server"

Facebook nutzt wirklich JEDE MΓΆglichkeit, den Nutzer zu tracken bzw. zu identifizieren. Oder anders: Was technisch mΓΆglich, wird auch gemacht.

I have some INCREDIBLY exciting news. I’m going to be working full time on free software!

Specifically, I have been awarded an EU grant to work on spectrum-os.org, a security-through-compartmentalization-based operating system in the style of Qubes, powered and managed by Nix.
