Consider Volla Phone : https://volla.online/ https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/volla/volla-phone-designed-with-simplicity-and-security-in-mind It is 300+ Euros, made in Europe, can run iirc UBports, LineageOS, and a SailfishOS version is being worked on.



iirc I’ve used the F-droid app to create one, like mentioned here : https://lemmy.ml/post/45345/comment/24546 I guess I was inspired by some avatars seen on Mastodon.


Privacy question Twitch

Hi all, in these covid-19 crisis times I would like to support some streamers on Twitch by following and sub-ing, but Twitch does ask for a birthday (besides email address) with sign up. I did some searching and it is not clear to me what happens when I would fill in a well known 1st of January 1970…

Yes, correct about the URL part. Sometimes I simply copy & paste. But the problem turns out that if I decide to share invidious links with other people, it can happen that the invidious instance cannot load the video, sometimes this happens, or the instance no longer exists (In the past I’ve shared invidious links with the flagship invidious which is RIP now). On my main browser I actually have a Firefox add-on to turn twitter and youtube links into nitter/invidious. (There’s several Firefox add-ons for that). The other thing is that Tor browser does automatically jump to the onion site of some of the invidious instances, and I prefer not to share onion sites with friends or on Lemmy or Mastodon unless there would be a good reason for it.




Tempting to upvote your broad and insightful comment ;-)


Today it happened again. I can actually browse through videos overviews on youtube.com but the moment I want to open a video (I don’t use Tor for watching videos normally [I prefer invidious or youtube-dl for myself], just use Tor - because I dislike all the Google tracking - to get a link for sharing in email, or Lemmy, for other people) I get the Sorry - blocked message. So I guess only the googlevideo.com (or smth like it) has the blocking part.


Upside Down Chess variant on Lichess

Lichess had an upside down chess tournament. It was very much fun to watch. Several GMs joined and were streaming. GM Anish Giri streaming upside down chess : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Jxu_9eaUz4


The Volla phone is cheaper and you can have Ubuntu Touch pre-installed on it, with an option for SailfishOS. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/volla-phone-free-your-mind-protect-your-privacy#/

BeOS was a closed source OS, nevertheless I remember testing their free download. It looked interesting but didn’t really have a lot of useful apps. Haiku OS is currently the open source alternative. https://www.haiku-os.org/


The Coca Cola Christmas guy and Black Friday from the USA have sort of arrived in Holland but Halloween has not as far as I can see. By the way, candy == crime. Especially children should eat healthy. And USA can do better with health. Get rid of McDonalds and Burger King. Less sugar and salt in supermarket products is still needed.


Some Chromebook firmware can be flashed, and plain Linux can be run. https://galliumos.org/


Ubuntu has done a lot in Linux history to make Linux and open source more popular. I am very grateful that Mark Shuttleworth has sponsored Ubuntu for so long. Ubuntu is a great OS based on the solid Debian and Ubuntu itself is the base of Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Budgie and more. Linux Mint was born because of the existence of Ubuntu. And not only interesting on the desktop nowadays but also on servers.

Nice


doesn’t apple prohibit gpl code from app-store? 🤔

Interesting point. After some searching and reading, I found that someone claims it can be fine. For example with Wordpress for iOS. https://apple.stackexchange.com/a/20555 https://github.com/wordpress-mobile/WordPress-iOS#license



Welcome to the F-Droid users world ! :-) F-Droid is more than just an alternative Play Store. Its volunteers focus on open source and privacy. For example the Telegram version in F-Droid is modified to be able to fit in with F-Droid. Also, sometimes apps on F-Droid are for free, while the same apps on Google Play Store one will have to pay. And some one made a web search for F-Droid : https://fossdroid.com/
