Facebook confirms that it tracks how you move mouse on the computer screen

The social networking platform also admitted that it collects information about operating systems, hardware, software versions, battery levels, signal strength, available storage space, Bluetooth signals, file names and types, device Ids, browser and browser plugins (which is almost all of the information available on and about your device), from the users' phones, TV and other connected devices.

It's been quite the interesting journey. Really looking forward to seeing the fediverse grow this summer in new projects and users. ❀️

It is even more outrageous when they say "we are doing some maintenance work and there will be a power cut till 6 pm" while that isn't the actual plan. We just got electricity back, and the person who answered the phone has said random crap.

Just learned that we'll be having a full day power cut today. This is outrageous! No prior notice. They simply start "maintenance" at any random moment.

What Twitter, IG has done to developers & users, and YouTube has done to creators, is make a huge market for alternatives. We are already 10x better.

- Federation (no silos)
- No behavioural tracking
- Developer Friendly APIs

And I am not entirely happy with my upgrade to Lubuntu 18.04 from 16.04. Inkscape continues to crash and I see more glitches on the Ubuntu desktop that I sometimes use. Fedora upgrades are the smoothest ones I have seen so far. This is below average.

Nothing compares to having uninvited and unexpected guests when you are really busy trying to meet a deadline in the middle of power outages!

While I was away, Hubzilla.nl has gone offline permanently :-/ I should have cloned my account but I don't think I have a recent copy of it. Anyway, I haven't posted anything there in a while. My use is more microblog-ish than Hubzilla.
