Hope you heard by now. If you recently bought a moss ball, please follow this link. An invasive species was found inside some of them.
I #deletefacebook for real. I gave myself until the end of the month to contact my friends with alternative contact methods. I'm afraid a little cause some doesn't use anything else, but I can no longer be on that stupid platform. I just wish #friendica was more advanced tho. I love #mastodon but I prefer the "blogging" type instead of the tweet type :P
This week in KDE: KDE Plasma improves multi-monitor support, the Dolphin file manager got some cool animations, and Plasma's app launcher makes it easier to reach your favorite programs.
#LinuxMint says I use 11.5 GB of RAM, but a quick count shows I use only around 4GB. I don't understand. It's not cache as the system hang if it does reach 16GB. Is the System Monitor lying to me? 😫 I'm gonna go download some dedidated wam.

This looks like a lite version of what people in the Free Software world have been irritatingly banging on about for a decade. It's the early 21st century and software is now everywhere and mediates everything. When software mediates everything and is controlled by a few companies then they can rig the economy. A lot of the old ideas about improvement via competition in a “free market” go out the window. The few big software companies combined with political power create the basis for a control society.
The politicians are fine with this, because they can create the perfectly ordered society according to their ideology. Via software mediation every citizen becomes contained and perfectly atomized. “Social contagion” is neutralized before it gets started.
Wow, and to think it's been already 10 years of excellence and freedom in the phone.
Congratulations, @fdroidorg !
