I'm very lucky! Still, thanks for letting me know this :-)

Today's lesson: Medium is bad. They've suspended our account and blocked access to all our published stories for bogus reasons and with only 12 hours notice.

KDE Connect now lets you use your computer's keyboard to type on your phone, reply to Whatsapp messages directly from Plasma, blacklist numbers from which you don't want to see notifications on your desktop, and more.

Yesterday I discovered #ForkAwesome a #FontAwesome fork. Finally with nice icons for #Mastodon #Diaspora, #GNUSocial, #Friendica, #XMPP,... Thanks a lot, I already updated my homepage!

Giving another try... I can "force" my gf to use that, but I don't know how to "force" other people to switch... 👿

...and then there is windows 7 logo on my corporation PC. :-D

My colleagues want to work remotely and blame my corporation for banning that.

However, we 1) don't fill the bug tracker with descriptions/expected results/how to reproduce steps/etc... 2) we don't share progress on 3) we don't write documentation on the wiki 4) we write meaningless commits.

I mean, I'm all for working remotely, but honestly speaking we are simply not ready yet. isn't only about working from home.

Comcast temporarily blocked Tutanota. Beware of handing all power to the ISPs. Random blocks can become much more frequent then. Let's all fight for #netneutrality!

Plasma Mobile can now be run on @Purism 's Librem 5 prototype hardware. Screen, log in, signal strength all work.

Guess what? My at is down since 10 days and, given my experience with them, this means it's lost. 😡

Which is your opinion about .io?
I liked it when it was just an entry point to share all my accounts, but I don't like the new "app" thing which allows to be used as IM or to share files... and of course I would never send my private key to them.

I had an unused 1 and I installed on it.
WTH I didn't that first?
I was already using and dnscrypt on my laptop, but now every smartphone in my net get them. In addition I see if them try to connect to unknown services.
It's really cool!

There is a new KDE Slimbook available as from today. The KDE Slimbook II comes with CPUs that are 15% faster and RAM that is also faster than the prior version by 33%. The dual hard drive bay gives you room for a second hard disk, and its bigger multi-touch touchpad supports gestures and clicks.

The larger antennas give you better WiFi reception and a wider range and, to top it all, for a short period of time, you can buy it cheaper than the KDE Slimbook I.
