hey have you heard that the IPCC released a new report of critical importance on August 9, 2021, and you wanted to read it but it's a bunch of fucking PDF files and that's not working out for you?

WELL COOL cause i extracted all the text for you and put it in per-chapter HTML files and I also dug up the actual long descriptions of the future scenarios they use throughout the report without explaining them for SOME REASON???

anyway here you go

➡️ @mobian - Mobile version of Debian Linux

➡️ @postmarketOS - Mobile version of Alpine Linux

➡️ @ubports - Mobile version of Ubuntu Linux

➡️ @plasmamobile - FOSS smartphone interface developed by @kde

Probably the easiest option right now is buying a PinePhone or an /e/ degooglised phone, as they have their OSes preinstalled.

However, all these projects deserve support so that alternative phones can become as functional and as easy to use as possible.

Just typo'ed a servername while reconnecting to an IRC channel, and accidentally put in libera dot net instead of the correct dot chat, and you wouldn't believe where I found myself: Back on Freenode. Who've apparently secured that domain, and are using it to try to trick people back on to their services.

If you weren't among the 33,600 people😮 at online @FOSDEM@twitter.com this weekend, be advised: 100% #FOSS for online conferences is production ready *today*. Say NO to any Zoom (or other proprietary software) online events from now on. Demand software freedom! sfconservancy.org/blog/2021/fe

I just get so mad when I think of th is last decade of computing, how we finally got powerful, amazing computers in the hands and pockets of everyday users everywhere, and iOS and Android tag-teamed getting users to expect them as consumption-only devices :\

Google is a "cornerstone sponsor" of FOSDEM this year, which is being run entirely on Matrix, accessible on Android via Element, which has just been pulled from Google's Play Store. FOSDEM is in a week. This all makes perfect sense.

Google has suspended Element (@matrix) from the Play Store for "Sexual Content and Profanity". Basically same story as with Subway Tooter a while back. Element is to Matrix as Chrome is to the web. Curiously, Chrome is still on the Play Store.

Okay I don't know how to say this better than the commit message I just wrote so I'm just gonna quote that:

"OMG CAPTP HANDOFFS WORK

With a test, too!

... holy butts"

Big moment for @spritelyproject! (Probably not obvious how big!)

"This is probably not the update you want." bodhi.fedoraproject.org/update

The result of Google restricting their services to particular user-agents and builds.

Are standards really standards if you only let yourself (and maybe one friend) participate?
