I have just created a regions table for the Wiki. This is one of the many tables coming as part of my attempts to organize the vast information on .

Usually, app developers choose which push provider they integrate in their apps. But that also means that users have no control through which servers their push notifications go, and the integrated push provider may not work on all devices. Unified Push (UP) solves that by separating the push provider out of apps and letting users choose their own. More information about UP and a list of available providers can be found at unifiedpush.org/

The new interface looks a bit odd to me. It looks like it has a large gap on the left and the main body is shifted to the right. As a fan of centralized layouts, I like the old one better.

However, I like the concept of a pinned table of contents (TOC). I would be interested in using the new layout with the TOC pinned on the right and the main body shifted to the left. Somehow I feel that would look better (at least for people used to western layouts).

TIL about lichess.org/ , one of the world's most popular chess servers, run entirely on free software by a nonprofit, ad-free, supported by donations with a budget of ~$420K/year according to lichess.org/costs

They've been around since 2010.

As awesome as this is to see, imagine how many free/open nonprofit alternatives to Big Tech platforms would exist if, down to the municipal level, we decided to support them with funding & infrastructure.
