@hund 2nd try at mastodon on bitlbee. I like it so far!

Anyone running mail in a box? It seems to meet my needs for price, flexibility, security and features to run two custom domains for < 10 users for my family. My current subscription is ending in 2 months so I'm looking for options and fun :)

#SolarpunkReporting

In 2014, when Sierra Leone was hit by the Ebola outbreak, three local software developers kept the country's infrastructure working by rewriting it to #FLOSS. They saved hundreds of thousands lives when companies like Google and IBM backed off, calling the project too risky.

The next time you install a custom rom, don't flash Google apps. Flash this gitlab.com/Nanolx/NanoDroid/bl .
It's a flashable package containing micro-g, f-droid and other open source apps

GTA V: benchmark, comparison between simultaneously.

Wine/DXVK vs. Steam Play/Proton vs. Spydows 10.

We have a difference of some between 5 and 20 FPS even with the bugged driver... GTA V runs above 60 FPS with high details, a huge win for Linux.

Pretty impressive. This is now playable. The days of Spydows are numbered!

Theo de Raadt of #OpenBSD has two very specific recommendations for the recent #Intel CPU bugs.

"""DISABLE HYPERTHREADING ON ALL YOUR INTEL MACHINES IN THE BIOS"""

"""I'm going to spend my money at a more trustworthy vendor in the future."""

Google makes it easier to run Linux apps on Chromebooks / Chrome OS.

An exciting Chrome OS feature will be part of next OS update, giving more users the opportunity to install and run Linux apps on their Chromebook!

Will ship as part of Chrome OS 69, which is currently slated for release to the stable channel on September 4, 2018.

This wave of love for Linux (Valve / Steam Play, this and more) is such a refreshing phenomenon!
