Now, where did I put that Katana?🤔

This is the unfortunate but absolute truth.

Oh, nice. Thank you, I'll take it for a spin.

Went to look into it, and seems to be in very early stages. I'll set up the flatpak on my computer and laptop to help where I can, seems like a very nice option. Do you know how to integrate it to Android? I could not find anything on that.

Edit: So it works from the KDEConnect Android app. Nice.

You need to take all your passwords out of LastPass and move to anything else. Bitwarden, ProtonPass, KeyPass, even Nextcloud, but run away from LastPass as soon as humanly possible. That shit and screaming your credentials at the top of your lungs while someone records it is the same crap.

KDEconnect or gsconnect if you're on KDE or Gnome respectively.

I just ordered one to replace my aging PFSense box. Scalpers are selling it on Amazon marked up by over 100 dollars.

While some of the configuratios may differ, what I do is have the tunnep on my UnRaid server and proxy manage the CNAM to my PFSense.

You could do the same with a Raspberry as well.

I just have my kids, wife, close friends and in-laws on SimpleX.

Sure, some of them use mainstream stuff as well, but if they want to reach me, that's their only option.

Matrix is a pretty good choice for self-hosted. The reason I don't do it is because I've become lazy lately.

There are many laws that go entirely against the constitution of a country. You can start by looking at DMCA laws that violate a bunch of rights in MANY countries. Legally gray is falling short, those are illegal, and still get enforced because $$$

And even sadder is that users choose to still use those companies.

At the end of the day, we all have a choice. This happens to those that allow it. We try to stay safe from burglars, traffic accidents, illness, etc., but choose to still use these companies. That's a choice, and there are ways to improve our lives, like removing them from our lives.

That could very well be the case. However, I would have to be seriously gullible to believe anything those closed companies promote an "independent" party paid by them found, moreso if the findings only serve to push their proven lies forward for "public perception'.

In this case it's and actual independent party auditing open source code, that makes much more sense.

Just because dollars exchange hands doesn’t mean the data provided is invalid.

You are absolutely correct. What means the provided data is invalid is the fact that these companies are regularly found lying about how they handle our " privacy" or how secure they are. Just search for "Apple lied" and see all the instances and how they try to bury it all via PR bullshit.

I believe that, out of Amazon, Google, Meta, Microsoft and Apple, Apple is the lesser evil, but that means shit when they all do the same, just in different ways and at varying degrees.

I just got this email from Sony. My kids use their profiles offline (meaning they don't even have a playstation account) on their PS4, and use my games. And now they want to allow kids to link their other accounts (my kids only have a SimpleX user to chat with their family, LOL).

The sad thing is that a lot of parents will go: "Nice, they can now have it all in one place!"

Love how they say this at the end:

Stay tuned for more details. In the meantime, we recommend talking to your child about account linking so that they can safely enjoy these new features while playing on PlayStation.

They fucking call these FEATURES!

This may end up being a bit convoluted, so I will do my best to keep it as short as possible and to the point.

I have a US number with Google Fi, have had it for about 8 years.

This is the only reason why I still maintain that one Google account. The benefit is that I only use it when I am in the United States, and when I'm not, I just pause the service and don't get charged.

However, I feel the string need to completely eliminate Google from my life permanently.

Does anyone know of a service similar to this one? It can be an MVNO or VOIP for my phone, and I would like to port my number as well. I found "phoner", but I can't pause the service, so I would be stuck paying a bill I don't use as much or loosing my number.

If the service is private (not to be confused with anonymous, of course) even better.

I have a trusty UnRaid server that has been running great for almost 3 years now, with some kinks and headaches here and there, but mostly very stable. Now I'm entertaining the idea of setting that box up with ProxMox, and running UnRaid virtualized. The reason being that I want to use UnRaid exclusively as a NAS and then run all dockers and VMs on ProxMox (at least that's how I'm picturing it). I would like to know your opinion on this idea. All I have is Nextcloud, Immich, Vaultwarden, Jellyfin, Calibre, Kavita and a Windows VM I use to update some hardware every now and then. I mainly want to do that for the backup capabilities in ProxMox for each instance. Storage is not a concern, and I have 64GB of ECC Ram running in that box. What are the Pros and Cons, or is it even worth it to move all this to ProxMox?

I need some help figuring out how to install all the DKMS drivers, and firmware manager, firmware daemon, etc on Silverblue.

It's easy on Fedora but I haven't found a single instance explaining how to do it in a Fedora atomic distro.

These are the instructions for Fedora.

So, apparently for no reason, my Voyager app started crashing this morning whenever I touched any of the replies to my comments.

I tried with and without VPN, custom DNS, automatic DNS, Rethink enabled and disabled, and it just keeps crashing.

Yes, I cleared data, un-installed and reinstalled, and it is still happening.

Anyone else having this issue? I thought I'd ask here first before opening a bug report on Github.

Edit: Forgot to mention I'm on version 2.8.0 from Github.

Edit 2: Available version from F-Droid, 2.6.0, does not preset this issue.

Edit 3: Finally got to reporting it. Sorry for the delay.

Finally got my wife away from Windows and on Fedora 40 (Gnome 46).

Now, when her PC goes to suspend and when she wakes it up, one of her 2 monitors doesn't wake up.

Both are connected to HDMI ports (no dedicated video card, just the integrated card in her Ryzen 9).

Any ideas on what could be happening? I wouldn't want her to go back to Winblows over something so insignificant, but she would.

I made wanderer - a self-hosted trail and GPS track database

Over the last two months, I developed wanderer. It is a self-hosted alternative to sites like alltrails.com or in other words a self-hosted trail database. It started out more as a small hobby project to teach myself some new technologies but in the end, I decided to develop it into a fully-fledged application.

Core Features:

  • Manage your trails
  • Extensive map integration and visualization
  • Share trails with other people and explore theirs
  • Advanced filter and search functionality
  • Create custom lists to organize your trails further
  • Chique design with a dark and light theme
  • Fully mobile compatible

wanderer is completely open-source. You can find the GitHub repo here: https://github.com/Flomp/wanderer

wanderer is still under active development so if you encounter any bugs/errors or have suggestions please let me know here or open an issue on GitHub.

Not 100% in agreement with some of her videos, but I believe this one is spot on, and probably easier to understand by regular folk.

I set up a Raspberry Pi 3 with AdguardHome for a friend of mine, and told him to disconnect everything at home and try to watch anything on his phone, being the only device using his home's internet.

He just sent me this, and now he's ready to #degoogle 🤣🤣🤣

He says there were hundreds in less than 5 minutes.

I've looked under my bed, in our pantry,and even went under the deck, nothing. Please help me find a FOSS android keyboard in which I can have the numbers to the right of the keyboard, like a computer keyboard keypad, even better if it has gifs.. The only android keyboard I know about that has that option is Swiftkey. Being a Microsoft app, you can understand why I'm not willing to use it anymore. AnySoftKeyboard and Florisboard don't have the option,at least I could not find it.
