Whenever a web browser, operating system, or web site gains dominance among users, it stops being cool and starts becomes blatantly abusive.
This Chromium nonsense is just more of what we saw from Internet Explorer.
Every generation of geeks learns this anew, and acts all shocked. Learn some history, folks. Learn from those who came before.
Stop supporting only one platform. Variety is ESSENTIAL. Monocultures are death. #sysadmin
whenever i see someone ask a question about computers that i feel is obvious, rather than saying READ THE MANUAL DO IT YOURSELF or HOW COULD YOU BE THIS UNINTELLIGENT i just explain how to do the thing, thus giving people a good experience with the community instead of making people associate linux users with smug, condescending, self-righteous asses
1. build a #docker image from https://github.com/mozilla-services/syncserver
2. #deploy it somewhere
3. configure identity.sync.tokenserver.uri in #about:config to point to your new location
4. login at `about:preferences#sync` (you still need a #mozilla account, unless you also run a private account server)
5. sync and check about:sync-log for #error|s
When I was in college I administered the linux server that the whole computer science program shared. When I heard about the ‘sl’ command, you *know* I installed it.
I actually got to see it in action in class one day. There was a group in front of me working on a project, and I happened to look up right as the guy at the computer hit ‘sl’ instead of ‘ls’
He looked genuinely dumbfounded for a couple seconds at the ascii steam locomotive that drove across his screen. It was amazing.
#fossdroid might have more success here than on Reddit, which is just a cesspool of trolls nowadays
What would happen if I used ADB uninstall to cull Google Play Services from my android? Would it brick it? If so, then how would I go about writing an OS using base base base AOSP without any Google implementation whatsoever? (Yes, I know I can't get around the proprietary modem blobs)
Replicant devices are too old. I don't have a device Lineage is built for. Is what I want to envision possible?
Haven’t done one of these in ages, and the instance is much bigger now. So here is my #introductions post...
I’m Kev and I’m a cyber security guy working in the financial industry for a very large bank. I live in the North West of England in a fairly large town called The Wirral with my fiancé, dog, cat and god knows how many fish.
I’m into walking, motorbikes, tattoos, reading, weight lifting (when time permits), oh yeah, and this thing called #Linux. I’ve also de-googled where possible.
Gamer, gnu/open source curious for many years. French and English toots, looking for all things Linux/gaming/geek/thinkering related :)
