@mmarif @raboof Yup, we have just released the 1st beta of #mobilizon : framablog.org/2019/10/15/mobil (with a demo instance).

It's still a work in progress we plan to integrate #activityPub federation by the end of the year, and a full v1 release during 1st semester 2020.

Google is currently on witchhunt for alternative #YouTube frontends: They target the services as well as their users.

In the last week, #Invidious instances first got IP banned, and once that was circumvented stopped via heavy rate limits.

Now they manage to associate #NewPipe users with google accounts somehow, and suspend these accounts:
github.com/TeamNewPipe/NewPipe

Now that these frontends got #Google's attention, I don't think we can sustain this cat & mouse game for long. 😔

The upgrade to perl 5.30 removed libgtk2-perl. Grmbl. 😞

When computers are involved in the inputs you experience, the outputs you produce, and your reasoning process, the distinction between those computers and you blurs considerably.

Increasingly, not having user freedom means not having agency. This work is critical.

Fun fact: you can't name any file anywhere in windows 10 "aux.txt" or "aux" anything with any extension, because it was a reserved name in CP/M before dos was a thing.

If you commit "aux.txt" to a git repo, you break it for windows users. If you distribute "aux.txt" in a zip file, windows computers cannot extract it without error.

Hi Fediverse

it seems to me that switching.social closed down it's services. All social media accounts are deleted and the site is currently offline.

Unfortunately, I have no clue what happened, I'm as surprised as you are. I already contacted the French, Italian and Turkish version of the site.

In case someone knows anything about what happened or has backups of one/multiple pages of the website, I would be very happy to get in touch with you.

GNOME Games + GSoC project + GTK4 + 3d transform = awesome

The RMS resignation was inevitable and right, but at the same time very sad.

Things can be right and sad at the same time. We can feel empathy while knowing this was necessary.

For people celebrating, we understand why. For those feeling sad about it, it's okay to feel sad too, but we all knew it had to happen.
