I'm so old I can remember technology where you just pressed or clicked and something happened immediately without a few seconds delay

@arya I started using NoScript recently and so far I'm satisfied. A compromise that works for me most of the time is to trust only JS from the same domain, and block all 3rd parties. This way I get the functionality but without trackers.

@sadmin @juliobiason What’s mindblowing is not what MS is doing. It’s how many the #FOSS projects still today continue to willfully empower #Microsoft by hosting their projects on #Github, and forcing all users into MS’s walled garden just to file a bug report. The people theoretically on the side of software freedom ignore the 10s/100s of public forges¹.

Oopsy daisy, the mobian repo's gpg key has expired and nobody noticed. Well until it was too late. If you get error messages about expired keys, you might want to add the new one manually

curl -s repo.mobian.org/mobian.gpg.key | sudo tee /var/lib/extrepo/keys/mobian.asc

The above command might be working for you. We will think how to get new keys in a safe way onto your device in the future.

When you're in a dystopic society but you're just resigned to it, that's Ohwellian.

@lightweight Don't know exactly how it works, but I would think the server is only for discovery, and then the whole remote session is peer-to-peer.

@lightweight Having the same use case, I've been looking for a libre TeamViewer alternative for a long time. I'll definitely give it a try!

Wow, just set up my own RustDesk (rustdesk.com/) server in a few minutes (github.com/rustdesk/rustdesk-s) and I'm now able to provide remote desktop support to my parents on the other side of the earth without the scourge of TeamViewer or the complexity of VNC using all my own kit. And it performs amazingly well!

@jnthnkl My device did receive tens of OTA updates from /e/, usually every month, but after December they stopped coming. I have Oreo and now they're only working on Q (for my device). As far as I know the only way of going from Oreo to Q would be to go back to the stock ROM first.
