I've been pushing XMPP a lot lately. Signal is a fantastic bit of software that's FOSS and best for privacy, but the platform isn't really open. It's ultimately controlled by Moxie and the Signal Foundation. They don't want it federating with other servers, the client isn't designed to handle multiple accounts for possible multiple servers, and they don't want any other clients connecting to their server.
I'd rather just stick to XMPP and help it improve.
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 #magisk, but stopped working today.
customer service didn't care much (they did suggest removing root and installing google services though)
The #trekarta app is truly a joy to use.
Quality of the app is top notch. Especially the interface design is worth a look.
- every ui element gets introduced on first use
- good use of tap and tap-and-hold (roughly: toggle vs configure)
- a very interesting widget design to fine-tune showing amenities without losing oversight
- the interface stays very clean which is important for mapping applications.

It's been a while, but I'm letting spam callers again listen to the screaming monkeys.
Trigger was a 'Infinity inquirer' (?) series of calls on "investment advice survey" which would only stop after i took a survey (so they said. Obviously, I didn't take the survery)
"Welcome to My Garden is a platform allowing citizens to put their garden freely at disposal as a rudimentary #campsite to travelers. It's a not-for-profit initiative set up by a group of citizens."
" you can only reach the campground by foot, bicycle or public transport. Getting there with your private car is forbidden"
"This is not Dour Festival"

Goal was simplification.
- systemd config mistakes can lead to silent failures
- I will never master shell script quoting
- moving window (frame) management to a window manager completely is not trivial
- emacsclient has hardcoded action for -a flag, which makes using sockets harder

https://github.com/dkrivoruchko/ScreenStream turns out to be near perfect for what I need!
It does everything I need, except the manually written notes get rotated / moved on the stream using the onyx ereader.
The app is worth checking out in any case, it's of higher quality than most apps out there. Very well done.
@mdbraber Is er een upgrade te verwachten van mastodon.nl van 3.0.1 naar 3.1.4 ?
I'm not sure if I like @nextcloud becoming something of a kitchensync for "everything that runs on a server".
Do one thing. Do that well. comes to mind.
