It's absolutely scary how tight a grip Facebook Inc. has on social lives in our societies.

I have neither a Facebook nor a WhatsApp account, but I can feel on a daily basis how small a minority I belong to.

If my wife didn't have WhatsApp either, I'd be pretty much cut off from social life, because currently the communication with our common friends happens almost exclusively there.

And ironically, even mildly anti-capitalist climate activists communicate all their activities via Facebook.

Des amis de la Fédération ont réalisé une animation vidéo pour expliquer en deux minutes au grand public les problèmes que rencontrent les petits opérateurs pour utiliser la fibre optique, en particulier pour être présents sur les réseaux qui sont financés par l'argent public.

C'est didactique, clair, et plutôt drôle. À faire tourner partout où c'est utile !

Hey KDE using friends.. This launcher dooh-dah. When I launch apps, they move. E.g. launched zenkit (purple diamond icon) and it moved from top to bottom. This is bugging me but I can't find out how to stop it happening. halp

Working on #ManjaroARM's 19.04 release. This relese will support these devices:
#rpi3
#pinebook
#rock64
#sopine/pine64-lts
#oc2

And it will come in these editions:
#kde
#lxqt
#minimal
#i3

Manjaro ARM is an Arch Linux based operating systrem, that strides to run the #mainline #linux kernel whereever possible. This does however result in some functionality not working on some/most of these devices. Such is the price of progress. 😎

When #Cloudflare and #Google prevent you from watching a government's parliamentary debates. Does that count as interfering with democratic processes?

And no, you don't get a chance to prove to a computer that you're human, this is a hard lock out, disguesed as a CAPTCHA.

Popular #BouncyBall widget been flagged as "DANGEROUS" on the #KDE Store. Outraged right now at this blatant and tone-deaf abuse of power on behalf of @kde admins.

Thank god the entire industry hasn't decided to revolve around Blink/Chromium for 95% of the web's browser traffic, or else Google would have an unlimited ability to push forward whatever bullshit standard they wanted.

Wait hold on, my producer is telling me something [places finger on my ear piece]

Oh no.

Considering writing a Google AMP page for all my sites, which only gives you a warning and explains why AMP is trash

#git tip: Since I just taught this to a couple of very surprised people, let me repeat it here just in case you didn't know: ``git checkout -`` works just like ``cd -``, and switches to the last branch/commit/whatever you had checked out, making switches forward and backward very easy.

I just published my first ever AUR package! (ktechlab 0.40.1)

The already existing ktechlab-git doesn't compile because of a CMake bug... Which is fixed with a band-aid in the build script of the release version, but the PKGBUILD have not used that.

(I use arch linux btw)

AMP for email is bad. Google is bringing AMP to Gmail not for your convenience or to increase speed, but to change your mailbox into a platform for marketers so that the ads jump into your face. 😤 Tutanota will not support AMP. Our business model does not rely on irritating our users with targeted advertisements, but on offering a quality email service that users are happy to pay for. 😀
