It would probably have been smarter to configure my setup before starting our trip instead of two-thirds into it.

Interesting perspective on Emacs.

"Emacs is the only serious program I know which manages to be truely user interface independent, in addition to being platform-independent."

If Google does not want to listen to my explanations, I will not change the app for them.
The way they are acting is unfair and don't give any trust concerning next publications.
I prefer to spend my time to help people to switch on #FDroid for getting the app.

#Fedilab

an org which does not understand their own security measures is a disaster, period.

Mastodon.nl community - I'm looking for someone to take over maintenance and hosting of mastodon.nl as I'm focusing on other projects. If you're interested send me an e-mail at mdbraber@mastodon.nl

waiting for compilation --> toot frequency goes up

In the past I used gnu.org/software/anubis for all my outgoing mail

It made using a gazillion different email-clients a lot easier having mostly the same config. I don't recall exactly why I stopped using it, but I miss it sometimes.

Switching my site to WriteFreely

I have been using WordPress ever since I decided to have a personal website/blog. It has served me well but I've come to a point where I got tired of messing with plugin conflicts, and spammers. I also like Markdown a lot and the available plugins for WordPress were either broken or had conflicts with other plugins. So I decided to try something simpler. At first I had my mind on static generators but then I came across WriteFreely, a minimalistic, distributed and customizable blogging software. It supports Markdown and HTML and that's all I need right now. On the minus side, it does not support media uploads but we will show a workaround to that, on this guide.

I've started working on some policy notes for qua.name to try to contain the marketing and link spam posts.

qua.name/info/qua-policy-notes

I get lots of bogus account registrations on the qua.name instance.

poker stuff and random links to businesses etc.

bit sad though, because there are no winners in that game, just wasted time and resources.

Does there exist a date picker bot?

I expected a while set to choose from , but can't seem to find one.
Seems a fairly common usecase

@mdbraber Can I request an update for mastodon.nl to its latest release? There's quite a few fixes and nice changes since v3.0.1

first selection criterium on chosing a bank today: does their app work on rooted phone without google services?

I'm on my third bank app now, the last one functioned till a week ago with help of , but stopped working today.

customer service didn't care much (they did suggest removing root and installing google services though)

It's finally here, teasing is over:

I'm excited to launch #keyoxide today!

#FOSS solution for easy encryption, signature verification and decentralized identity proofs!

I've been in favor of #DeleteKeybase but I never had something to offer as an alternative. Now I do :)
