Can anyone figure out what this says? It is a challenge for you people of the internet!

I will gladly post hints after 24 hours. While this may be a christian song, I think it fits the attitude of the people perfectly. Its encouraging and reminds you that even when you think all is lost, its not over yet.

This, right here, is why companies everywhere should not use social media alone for service status updates.

The fact that Proton's status page says we should go to Twitter for "more information" means that Proton is less accessible to folks without Twitter accounts. And that's no good.

As a non-Apple user, the Apple keyboard is the most awkward and annoying keyboard to use, of all time. It's just remarkably poorly designed.

@vgan It would be amazing to be able to have the images from AI Artbot set to be a desktop / lockscreen image as they're released, especially on something like the #Pinephone / #Librem5..

Any possibility of a wallpaper addon to do this, or even just an automated way to get the highest resolution available downloaded to a specific folder (so folderview / slideshow can do the rest)?

The issue with people not understanding filesystems isn't that people don't understand filesystems; it's that for decades now the leading technology companies have been executing a campaign to strip basic computer literacy from everyone who isn't college educated, allowing the formation of a cult of tech and the mysticization of the process in order to justify monopolies and oligopologies with outsized influence over daily life for everyone on Earth.

Time for the #Linux and #opensource news! This time, a few crazy guys run a Linux kernel on iPads, Ubuntu 22.04 kills applications a bit too eagerly, System76 plans to expand to Europe, and the HP Dev One is available!

Chromebooks foisted on students? Teachers monitoring what children do outside of the classroom via nonfree software? Surveillance of children is common, and it's at your child's school, too. Support #FreeSoftware

"An actively exploited Microsoft 0-day flaw still doesn’t have a patch"

"Microsoft downplays severity of vulnerability in all supported versions of Windows."

Troubling doesn't begin to describe this. It's essentially a sanctioned back-door onto any Windows machine that can gain some modicum of local access (aka: a Word Document or browsing a page).

(Note: Not the place to preach the benefits of alternatives to Microsoft. I was preaching those in the 1990s. You're not going to say anything that I haven't either beaten to death myself or heard the death throes).

Now that the World Wide Web is just an application platform and no longer gives a damn about hypertext, what say we reinvent hypertext and do it better?

The EU Commission is planning automatic CSAM scanning of your private communication – or total surveillance in the name of child protection. This would be the worst surveillance apparatus outside of China:
#Fight4Privacy #No2Backdoors

Filter mandates are good only for some of the largest companies in the world. For the rest of us, for internet creators, users, and small to medium businesses, this would be a disaster

If you are siding with Russia's government during this conflict, please block me.
