I think we need to start supporting text-only news site, or use them as much as possible.

Here are two of my favourites. (Still looking for tech sites)

Whatever your Android app for accessing the Fediverse, you can use #NitterizeMe for sharing links. It will help you to transform Twitter, YouTube or Instagram links into a URL of a front-end instance (Nitter, Invidious, Bibliogram) that respects the user's privacy.
As a bonus, it will resolve redirects without visiting the site.

Available on F-Droid: f-droid.org/packages/app.fedil

We are now approved as an organization on github sponsors: github.com/sponsors/f-droid

The funds will be contributed to our #opencollective without any additional fees.

You can also find other options to donate here f-droid.org/donate/

What Android Mastodon client are you using? I'm sick of the latest Tusky update. It's become increasingly annoying with the touch sensitivity bug.

Remember, folks: Oracle is a horrible company:

(birdsite link)

"In a corporate blog yesterday, Oracle attacked 83 computer scientists (including 13 Turing Award winners) who signed an amicus brief defending our right to reimplement APIs, on the grounds that some of us accepted research grants from Google."

I don't watch all of Joe Rogan's podcasts but I do like the format that allows for a really deep dive (1hr 35) into a topic. Michael Osterholm is a US public health and bio-security expert and does a good job breaking down a complex topic: youtube.com/watch?v=E3URhJx0NS #jre #covid19

@Tusky how do we get an old version back? I feel like I'm using a retarded application since the last update. I read what the problem is, but I don't think waiting for the upstream library to fix things is a solution. I prefer old stable software to buggy new versions. Thanks!

Please use Firefox, if for no other reason than to keep the browser landscape diverse and alive.

⛓️ source link • lots more info on soap and viruses 

But I'm just paraphrasing someone else right now. Here's a twitter link to a (long!) thread written by a chemistry prof, all about how and why soap kills viruses. It's worth reading, even if it does get a bit technical!

Here's a free tip: If you want to *ruin* your organisation, adopt Microsoft Active Directory. That'll ensure that you never again experience self-determination and sovereignty. AD is Microsoft's new lock-in focus. It's the Christian missionaries of its colonisation of #FOSS.

americans demand that people around the world know our language, culture and history, but never bother to learn about anyone else in return.

In my estimation a lot of places are running their instances in the same manner leadership at Twitter run that site: prioritizing a white centric perspective while demonizing everything else.

Certain progressives got caught in that churn, but they still brought their racism and myopia with them to the fedi, so we see a lot of those same patterns here.

So the result is Masto has the same problems Birdland has.

Which is a case study on how hate replicates itself.

Help! I'm currently writing a blog post about the importance of you friendly local game store and I am searching for "FLGS" logos but can't really find any. Is there any artwork out there I could use? Boost would be much appreciated.

@amolith@masto.nixnet.xyz I just created a TT-RSS account on your service - just as a test for now. Would you be open to adding new themes (if you have the time, of course)?
