RT from Lea Verou (@LeaVerou)

Can't setup washer/dryer bought in Europe because my iPhone's region is US and the @hoover_uk hOn app is not available in the US App Store. If that's not @internetofshit, not sure what is.

Original tweet :

If WhatsApp infrastructure were owned by users, not Facebook, then could only affect one household at a time. Communicating with family and work is too important to be the job of one company. Decentralize now!

Facebook down but the fediverse is still fediversing.

#phosh #librem5 #purism #gnomeonmobile #gnome #linux

Just realized that I missed the anniversary of my first commit to #calls #gnome #gtk

which has been the start of a really beautiful journey working for #mobian on the #pinephone which eventually lead to working on SIP in calls for Purism \o/

Lasers and Rainbows!

Some folks have asked about making a spam blocker for the #Pinephone . I made one here for #Phosh:

If the contact is not in your contact list (or you added it as "Spam), it will automatically hang up.

Also, it has some user configuration options to allow 1) blocked numbers, 2) a caller through if they call twice within 10 seconds, or 3) A way to look for a subset of a number (e.g. an area code, a number prefix) and let that through.

Let me know what you think of it!

Making a #sip call from the #calls app on the #librem5 (and yes audio worked ;) ). This is still a development version of gnome-calls. And work still needs to be done to make it more user friendly and integrated with other components. But hey it is progress :D
Credits go out to: @devrtz that has been working to add #sip on gnome-calls. Also the account on the phone is an account, shoutout to them as is an awesome service :D

I was bored.

Still need a libhandy version for GTK3, and need to discuss the whole approach and the portal key name.

But it works. The code in Builder shows how it looks like from an app's side, that's the whole thing other than meson/flatpak bits.

So proud this program is a Conservancy member project! Hearing about kids who are able to, for example, forgo a fast food job & instead get a first step in a serious career as scientist is just the best! And I love how software freedom is the logical tool to accomplish this. just ordered a new DSL Router.. 5ghz wifi this time. ...

Now I need an USB wifi stick which supports 5ghz....and works with Debian (10 now...11 soon 😬)...and is available in Europe.

Any suggestions? 😊

Boosts welcome! Thx 😊

The Netherlands is becoming increasingly dependent on a digital infrastructure that is dominated by just a small number of monopolistic companies.

The consequent security risk is recognised by the Dutch Cyber Security Council.

The FSFE calls on the Dutch government to stand firm and get a grip on their digital security & autonomy by adhering to and , in line with their earlier commitment to use Free Software by Default.
