The recent flood events in and beyond triggered a discussion about how to warn citizens reliably and effectively. The current proprietary app environment failed at this – again!

Already last year we called for [1/2]

As someone in my discord server said - “the best way to make politicians anti-facial recognition might be to use it on them”.

#CallOut to our #Android devs:

GpsIcon needs help. No idea why this useful featue was ditched with Android 4.4: a GPS indicator that blinked when looking for a signal, and switched to steady when a fix was aquired. The tiny app (<50k!) even shows how many sats were found already, and how much are used for a fix.

But with Android 10, it not longer works reliably, see github.com/Limizin/GpsIcon/iss – and the author has no idea how to fix that.

Anyone? Boosts welcome!

hey is there anybody on the fediverse who lived in germany between like 1982-1984 and listened to NDR

or anyone who was active in the music scene there around that time

or even any radio DJ's from that era

because the world could use your help solving the mystery of the most mysterious song on the internet

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Most

youtube.com/watch?v=zPGf4liO-K

basically, all you need to do is read the wikipedia article and listen to the song and hopefully you'll recognize it and remember who it is

boosts appreciated, you never know, fedi might be the place to crack this case!!! :boost_ok:

Oh so GitHub made an code completion tool with machine learning that has been trained on (among other os licenses) GPL licensed code. The tool is not GPL licensed and you can use it wherever you want. I'm not an expert but how can this not be a massive license violation 🧐

I feel like someone at Microsoft is watching KDE Plasma a little bit too closely...

Plasma's slogan since 2017: "Simple by default, powerful when needed"

Microsoft advertising Windows 11: "Simple by default, powerful by choice"

Really? 🤔

There is no such thing as “the new Microsoft”. They have not “reinvented themselves”. The open source / Linux friendliness is a ruse. “You don’t need to install Linux on your computer, just use WSL!”. This is embrace, extend, extinguish. Just like in the old days. It’s not new. I lived through the previous attempts and this is exactly the same. Secure Boot has been something MS has been pushing since 2012, and there were attempts before this.

bad news, internet privacy, corporate anti-piracy over reach 

Well that's capital-B Bad.

Sony has won in German court against a DNS resolver that refused to block DNS recursion for lookups for domains associated with piracy sites.

To anyone who understands even a little what DNS is, this is asinine. To anyone who understands even a little the stakes involved around DNS in internet privacy and openness, this is terrifying.

@ConnyDuck Thanks a lot! No pressure of course – whenever it's ready. Glad to read you're open to it!

So everyone who's able to: Conny said Pull Requests for @unifiedpush support are welcome at #Tusky ! Anyone out there who can provide such? I'm no Android dev, so all I can do is making a #callout for help from this great community here. Would be really awesome to have free, libre push messages in our free, libre apps!
