itch.io has an absolutely gigantic bundle of games out now, with all money going tothe NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and Community Bail Fund!

I'm thinking I'm going to tip some BTC to #ubuntutouch , they 100% deserve it

"I use Linux as my operating system," I stated proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. He swiveled around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision. "Actually," he said with a grin, "Linux is just the kernel. You use GNU+Linux!" I don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk: "I use Abyss, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. It's Linux, but not GNU+Linux."

The smile quickly drops from the man's face. His body began convulsing, he foamed at the mouth, and he dropped to the floor with a sickly thud. As he writhed around he screamed, "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!" In a cool fashion, I replied "Abyss uses the LLVM compiler suite, GCC uninvolved."

With a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life was ejected from his body. He lied on the floor, cold and limp. I've womansplained him to death.

Friendly reminder that if you have a problem with a piece of software, approaching and working with the devs is generally more constructive than yelling about it on social media.

A reminder to myself as much as anyone else.

Working towards supporting the Flatpak future by integrating sandbox permissions. Should be easy to review app permissions and adjust them to your needs

I had a quick look at Timelie. A cute time-manipulation stealth puzzle game. And oh no a video.

@jaz @gomez I took the plunge and deleteed my FB a few years back. It was mostly for security reasons, people kept trying - and sometimes succeeded - to use it to contact people I knew, steal money, generally abuse my personal info.

It took an adjustment period, but honestly, I never looked back.

It does a good job of fostering FOMO and looking like the place 'where everyone is', but I think that's illusionary to a point. Unfortunately, it's a powerful illusion.

How old is your primary computer?

Yet more evidence we should all be using #Firefox or another browser with a proven record on user rights and #security.

"#Google was sued on Tuesday in a proposed class action accusing the internet search company of illegally invading the privacy of millions of users by pervasively tracking their internet use through browsers set in β€œprivate” mode. "

Although it can be quite sustainable (it's sustained me my entire career so far), #FOSS will never be as profitable as proprietary software. That's because FOSS is specifically structured to make it impossible to exploit its users. Exploitation is what makes proprietary software so profitable. And, from where I sit, that profit is largely unethical.

Had a grand time with Deus Ex: The Fall. Arguably the least popular game in the series, but as a nice stand-alone title which is somewhat apart from the main series, I think it works - and more importantly - had fun playing it. It took me about four hours to play through and works well on Proton.

We just shipped v0.1.1 of the P2P Matrix proof-of-concept - and have put together a write-up explaining the project to formally introduce the project, given we're at the point now where you can actually start playing with it! πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸ¦© matrix.org/blog/2020/06/02/int

Paint cans should have the hex code for the color of paint inside on them.
