The key lesson from the #Signal brownout today is that we shouldn't depend on any one platform, particularly those that tend to be centralized.

Have a dencentralized secure messenger on deck, I recommend using and supporting @delta_chat@twitter.com

A thread on hackernews about Delta Chat -- nice to see it's quite well-informed. news.ycombinator.com/item?id=2

So, I almost completely delinked from any specific browser :)

And I keep my bookmarks in markdown files and folders. When I save on phone, I use . This editor even has feature with pre-save export window in which I can add quote from saving site or my notes about it. In desktop I can use (with gx) or browser plugins for viewing directly inside browser.

And if I want fast export link to phone I prefer use built-in or external QR-code generator (this lifehack works even in net-cafe).

attemps to kill antother open source app (namely Chromium). Long ago engineers divided mobile and desktop folders - since then my system has been drifting to "syncthing model". All files sync between my phones and workstations by and that is staple of my sync system.

For passwords I use keepassdx container - and plugins for Firefox/Brave.

second thought: hope that distributed systems will remain a blind spot for politicians and others like them for a long time.

Don't want any politics in the mastodon. Рolitics and monetization kill freedom and inspiration - and this spirit of old rusty networks :)

What surprises me the most is the lack of strategic thinking and the ability to calculate the game several moves ahead. Banned from Twitter? Dude, don't use anything centralized anymore! Heard about federated networks and other things? Torrents? Peertube? :)

..so script - just one-liner `qn.sh`:

echo "\n"`date +#\ %Y-%m-%d\ %H:%M:%S` $@"\n" | tee -a /storage/emulated/0/text/QuickNote.md.txt

and alias:

q=sh /storage/emulated/0/Download/sper/t-ui/sh/qn.sh %

...it was a little tricky, because I want it with timestamp, but both `date` command and `alias` of t-ui launcher get percent as meaningful character. So I write small sh-script and connect it with alias...

I use -ui launcher and editor on my android phone. Markor has the QuickNotes file for quick notetaking and pasting from phone buffer. I sync it with my desktop ando other computers by Very convinient. Often save to it links and quotes from browser (better archive than quick bookmarks) etc. Last night write small script and alias to quick insert notes from t-ui command-line...

Dear #Mozilla, I fully agree with your message and this is why I am not giving you my money anymore. Because you are not the #Internet and I really don't like how you started speaking of yourself as such.

You make a browser. This is great. Diversity among browsers is essential and indeed keeps the Internet alive and humane. However instead of concentrating on this very important mission you are uniquely positioned to perform you changed your focus to populism while your top management pay figures go into seven digits. This I don't like as well. #Firefox needs love and attention but instead you cut developers and engage into distracting nonsense no one asked you for. You even managed to break Firefox Mobile. After your redesign it is just shadow or what it used to be.

Instead I am giving to someone else. It is David Morley who runs diasp.org - my first Diaspora pod. It is the Dr.Quadragon who runs one of the largest Russian Mastodon instances. It is Funkwhale, great free music sharing and streaming platform. It is Phillip Kulin who runs Russian Internet Censorship Registry Watch. I am not giving much but I hope this trickle helps to fuel real life of the Internet - people who create and support things.

I used to give you, Mozilla, but I am becoming more and more disappointed lately. Sorry. And again when salaries of your execs are described with words "instant inter-generational wealth" it seems to me you can do fine without my $5.
