What a mess. Three extremely serious 0-days which leak private user data go unpatched for more than 6 months. Hopefully the disclosure will make Apple expedite the fixes.

Don't want to sound like an old fart. I actually enjoyed using Facebook many years ago. I enjoy Twitter, Mastodon, and other social networks. The problem with Instagram is that by centering the tool on images there are only two good use cases: selling stuff and showing off. This breaks some people.

I agree with each and every one of these 40 tips. A must read for those who spend all day around email

Not going to spoil it -- read the article, it's worth the nostalgia trip and has lots of retro screenshots

Good review. The world really does need a FLOSS mobile OS, and Android isn't it. Until there is a good realistic alternative to Apple/Google we will all be tied to one of these two options.

30 years ago, a Finnish student announced his hobby operating system (won't be big and professional like GNU) to the Minix community.

Twitter following the Instagram route. Mixed news. People will eventually stop using Twitter as their public blog and online homepage, and treat it as another closed social network. However, a pretty good kinda open public discussion forum will die.

@anthk Muchas gracias por la información, me la voy a apuntar. Ahora mismo no tengo mucho tiempo para trastear con este tema, pero siempre me ha resultado interesante usar herramientas de framebuffer/consola.

@anthk Sí, yo hace tiempo que dejé el azúcar. Mi "cocoa milk" es leche vegetal + cacao 100%. Pero bueno, que tampoco no me quería meter en este tema, la idea era transmitir un poco de nostalgia :)

@anthk Bueno, estas máquinas de que te hablo son Pentium 75 y similar. GTK2 se arrastra, uso entornos X11 puros o motif/GTK1 como mucho.

@anthk Eko es achicoria si no recuerdo mal, ¿verdad?. Mis abuelos lo bebían por costumbre, ya que durante la guerra faltaba café y se hicieron populares. Yo lo bebía en su momento, no está mal, la verdad.

@anthk Muy interesante!

Tengo algunas máquinas antiguas con fvwm95/icewm por este motivo. Y además son entornos más ligeros que xfce

@publius @gchaincl Exactly the point. Now I know I can get a shot of caffeine whenever I need to stay awake for the next 8 hours.

Well, that, plus anxiety. Even with a tolerance built, quitting caffeine helps reduce stress levels.

Gotta tell you a secret. Some time ago I quit caffeine. I started drinking decaf. After a couple weeks of adjustment, I no longer needed my morning coffee to function.

Some months ago, I had chocolate milk for breakfast a few times, as a joke, because it reminded me of my kid days.

Well, it has stuck. Here I am, an adult, drinking chocolate milk for breakfast. Know what? It makes me very happy. Try it sometimes. Not being hung on caffeine is also a plus.
