@be @lightweight I've never had a Laptop break in the first ~4+ years. I'm not sure how this product is "better". By the time I need a new Laptop, most of the components will be outdated and incompatible with whatever is on the market - So I need a new Laptop, not a new hard disk or WiFi card.

It does appear to be easier to repair, but I don't see the average person opening up their computer, to presumably troubleshoot what the problem is.

So all this is - yet more trash?

#TIL: Autochrome photography.

Dates to ~1907 -- 1935. It's a colour photography process. The colour can be enhanced by modern techniques, but represents the original colour captured by the process, it is not colourised B&W or hand-tinted.

We are already working on Beta 4, which will finally include an automated installer. Stay tuned 😉

Who cares about web performance when you're stuck on the cookie dialog for 10 seconds. Why can't the browser A) tell the site your preferences, B) enforce your choices as much as technically possible and C) optionally report sites that do not behave

So complicated?

LXQt finally has a new Twitter account twitter.com/lxqt_project. You know what to do! Convince them to join Mastodon too 😄

Last month the Netherlands passed #RouterFreedom into law: all ISPs must let customers choose their own Internet hardware and still provide tech support at no extra cost. That little box is your home-internet gatekeeper, and now in NL it can work for you fsfe.org/news/2021/news-202108

With IPv4's now costing in the range of $40 isn't it time to make the switch?

@dumpsterqueer totally agree. As far as I can see, "Cloud" means you're paying 2-4x. "Serverless" probably another 2x. Of course that's totally fine if your total monthly hosting fee's don't exceed $5 🤔


Wer ein mächtiges Tool für Screenshots sucht, seine Screenshots direkt bearbeiten möchte, dem kann ich »Flameshot« was obendrein noch Open Source ist, nur empfehlen.
Die verbesserte Verpixelung in der aktuellen Version überzeugt jetzt auch.

Gibt es für folgende Distributionen:
Linux, MacOS und Windows.


😀 ✌️

I just recently realised, that proprietary social networks are not social networks but entertainment networks. That's why at least my friends have a hard time switching to mastodon or pixelfed. People expect to be highly entertained the first second they enter the network and kept that way all the time. Being confronted with a network that is stripped from all these addictive tools is a massive cultural clash.

Firefox Nightly (90.0.2) is looking more and more like iOS. I don't think I like all those curves ...

PantherX OS Beta 2 is coming in approx. 7 days. Here's a sneak-preview of what to expect community.pantherx.org/t/panth

@oros it's all about masks and "vaccines" but nobody ever dares to mention that a lot of people are leading a terribly unhealthy life. Is there any statistic considering cases (and severity) in relation with overall health of the individual?

By any measure, most do no exercise, sleep too little, consume huge amounts of sugar and are lacking essential vitamins.

Depending on the region you look at, anywhere from 20-90% of the population has a vitamin D deficiency. vitamin-d-covid.shotwell.ca. Either supplement or get some sunshine!

@RyuKurisu @mike well, they don't "navigate through the world without being explicitly told what to do" 🤪 Which is probably a good thing ...

@mike wow, I haven't seen this! ... but I don't feel excited at all?

"eliminates dangerous, repetitive, boring tasks"

Like taking out the trash? Rescuing people out of burning buildings? Administering the 10th round of booster shots?

@mmarif couldn't you just provide an account for whatever service for them to test? I've found Google Play to be rather "easy going".

It's hot and Bassdrive is humming. This probably marks my 13th year on this channel. Perfect for programming. archives.bassdrivearchive.com - Friday's are especially great, though there's gems every day, at every hour! There's a live-stream too bassdrive.com. If you don't enjoy this immediately, sleep on it ... try it again, and you'll be hooked 🤪
