I wanted to toot an image which needs to be rotated but all edit buttons were disabled after selecting the pic. Any hint what's the problem? Picture from the camera folder...

I just started using and it's great. A useful enhancement would be redirecting direct nitter.net links to the user's chosen nitter instance because at least for me/my location, nitter.net itself loads horrible slow (like ten seconds or more to view a single tweet).

Können Menschen bitte aufhören, auf freier Software rumzuhaten, wenn sie nicht für iOS implementiert wurde? Man kann doch nicht ernsthaft erwarten, dass sich Menschen dafür einen Apple-Rechner + Smartphone kaufen, 180€ für den Zugang zum Apple-Store bezahlen, Swift lernen und darin die App komplett neu implementieren und sich dann mit den Regularien von Apple rumschlagen. Das ist in Tool-Diskussionen einfach unfair. Leute, euch in ein Gefängnis einzukaufen, war eure Entscheidung

I want to make Linux more accessible to everyone, but also make the complicated and ever growing field of distros easier to understand.

That's the goal or my new project, Try Linux.


Allegedly #Microsoft loves Open Source now. So the #FSF wants them to release #Windows7 under a FOSS license after support for this release has ended.

We have computed the very first chosen-prefix collision for SHA-1. To put it in another way: all attacks that are practical on MD5 are now also practical on SHA-1.

We have reduced the cost of a collision attack from 2^64.7 to 2^61.2, and the cost of a chosen-prefix collision attack from 2^67.1 to 2^63.4.

Demo: The legacy branch of GnuPG (version 1.4) is vulnerable. We have created two PGP keys with different UserIDs and colliding certificates.

Consider: millions of years ago our antecedents gave a massive sacrifice of their left hemisphere.

We lost a tremendous amount of short term memory and replaced it with Broca’s, Wernicke & the phonological loop.

But why?

So we can—talk.

Thus chimpanzees can do this—we can’t:

#Sonos is evil. They have a “recycle mode” that bricks your device on purpose and makes sure they can never be used again. Pure software. Even though speakers are perfectly OK. This should be illegal. threadreaderapp.com/thread/121

@fedilab Is there a way to disable this notification? It sits there all the time and cannot be swiped away...

Fiddling with the is like fiddling with . You can always improve a bit and have so much fun doing it that there's the danger that you don't get done what you actually wanted to do. 😁 @UltHackKeyboard

@tsdh But no problem with the and its fantastic agent software: now what's originally the extra space on the left is another Ctrl.

Oh, and I repositioned the mouse click keys because I swapped the mouse mode key with the left Ctrl, too.

Once you have a split keyboard like the you realize your bad habits like typing on the left half with your right hand cause your hand is too small for a certain Ctrl-key combo. @UltHackKeyboard

Yesterday has been an adventurous day. I've cought a bee swarm together with my 5yo son!

Three weeks after the bee swarm moved into my hive. They've been really diligent!

My @Google Android widget just informed me about a new release of the German punk band WIZO. Well, see for yourself.

Discussions (using the term loosely) about software licensing are always full of developers bitter about the GPL because they feel entitled to using other people's code in their proprietary product and get mad when they can't. I have a feeling that if I wanted to use their proprietary code in my free project the reaction would be different.

What? "cargo test" runs the examples in your docs as tests? That's plain brilliant!
