Title’s confusing. GNU-Free can be understood as “distros free of GNU”. Author actually meant “GNU-powered Free distros”.

You’re not talking about it, you are FEEDING it.

Feeding it would be engaging with the trolls. This post is just talking about the issue.

Oh, that’s because you’re not supposed to log in on the page of their instance! You can view their instance from lemmy.ml. It’s not super intuitive right now, but the other person explained a way to do it.

however it imposes an additional account

They do? Can’t you use a single one thanks to federation?

Oh, that’s called submechanophobia! I love the name :P

Here’s a video I saw one time of someone with it reacting to stuff under water: https://invidious.kavin.rocks/watch?v=8QxgI8rpO98

So cool!

Kakoune but I’m considering switching back to Neovim

So this is where all these cats come from!! Thank you, mystery solved.

What I imagine when I think of a scenario like OP is the companies actively scraping Fedi profiles and posts and then using machine learning(?) to map the data to known users. Trackers wouldn’t be necessary.

Of course, that’s a lot of work and I doubt it’s happening soon (if ever). Still interesting to think about.

Running everything sandboxed even if the software that’s being run is FOSS and comes from trusted sources doesn’t sound too bad though. Just another layer of defense. What are the potential security issues this could cause?

On Firefox I use Sidebery which is a modern and very customizable tree-style-tabs-like sidebar extension

age v1.0.0 🏁

age—pronounced [aɡe̞], like the Italian “aghe”—is a simple, modern and secure file encryption tool, format, and Go library. …


Why would you want to bother creating a room on closed, proprietary and non-federated Discord? Haven’t you heard of Matrix?

Especially 5, it’s a really good point that I overlooked.

Well, here I go changing all my passwords again…

Nah, that’s just what the YouTube site responds with when sending a preview request (or something like that). IIRC YouTube isn’t compliant with that standard so specific logic has to be implemented to request thumbnails and descriptions from it, unlike most other sites.

I use caps:escape_shifted_capslock as an xkeyboard (setxkbmap) option.

Make Caps Lock an additional Esc, but Shift + Caps Lock is the regular Caps Lock

That way I can use it as Escape for Vim/Kakoune but still keep the caps lock functionality in reach

You can also change this setting temporarily at the top of the front page

I found this for 7z. Disclaimer: I haven’t tried it. Note that the readme seems to be outdated since it says nodejs while it’s actually rust.

As for a more general purpose file manager with this feature, I think there isn’t. But it’s such a good idea I don’t know why it hasn’t been made yet. Maybe make an issue about it in your favorite file manager’s issue tracker? You may even get a better alternative from the dev/community.

Or maybe the tool I linked above could be extended with other formats, and then that can be used from within existing file managers. Not as smooth but it could work I guess.

Do share if you find a better alternative!

EDIT: Ok I didn’t read the other response haha. nnn seems to be what youre looking for. Also archivemount can mount archives and so it’s file manager agnostic :P

as Facebook made a deal with mobile ISPs to have Facebook access not count towards the data-cap

This is so annoying. The internet here is pretty much only the most Popular Apps nowadays. Very hard to move to other platforms (and convince friends & family to switch too) when they literally cost more money to use >:/

“Why use Signal Matrix, when WhatsApp is free?” Ugh

A FOSS Music app that’s as good as Musicolet. I got too used to its queue system that now I can’t use any other music app that does it the more “traditional” way. Also multi-select, menus, options and search are just too well done in this app. Literally the best IMO.

The fact that it does so much and is still ad-free and mostly donation-based (iirc) also always makes me reconsider if going full-FOSS is actually worth it at all. It just feels like it was built with so much care… Similar to other non-FOSS apps I used to use.

I guess not everything that’s proprietary sucks
