I accidentally just became a landlord. I was just given partial ownership of a rental property and I am not sure what to do, lol.

RSS is a format for data (often served over HTTPS), not a protocol. I don’t really understand comparing a data format to a federated communication protocol.

I wish a violent death to this person and I advocate for anyone willing to carry it out.

What a question!

I dunno, I don’t have a plan. I’m just gonna grill.

You also can’t have a revolution, so it’s tedious discussion forums and horrible self-sucking memes from here on out

Cosigned. They are very bad, and every now and then I forget and buy the newest one thinking it will be some nostalgic fun only to be very disappointed.

Besides what SudoDnfDashY said, I’m sure it really depends on why you hate your country. Or put another way, how much your country hates you. I don’t like the United States, but I’m not in any danger here. I also don’t assume that any country I choose is going to be thrilled to have me.

I respect his decision, but I don’t understand it honestly. A lot of worrying about bad reviews? Or if it’s pulled from the play store, worry about losing users? Why is that even a concern? Oh well. If he doesn’t want to work on it anymore that’s all the justification he needs.

I had no idea this was in the works, but I’m very happy to hear it. I love Thunderbird.

One major reason for centralization was discoverability. It was more convenient to go to a single social media site where all the content was than to hunt for small blogs around the internet. Federation solves this problem by allowing sites to connect with one another and share content. This provides a user experience that’s comparable to centralized platforms without the need for everyone to use a single site.

I think this is way overly optimistic. Discovery is terrible on mastodon/pleroma compared to Twitter and it very likely always will be, especially if you’re not using a huge instance. You can share content, but good luck finding it.

And javascript is otherwise so lax! You like semicolons? Put as many of them as you want wherever you like! Or don’t.

That’s down to a lack of class consciousness, right? When you are blinded to class then all you have are these social grievances against a hegemonic liberal, and in the case of Twitter specifically, (D)emocratic, dogma. To these people, just annoying liberals is subversion. Just annoying liberals is enough to elect Donald Trump, and I’m pretty sure it will be enough to do far worse.

Something tells me that’s not going to work, but hey- somebody just got some clout from somewhere.

The JIngPad A1 seems to be coming close to release and several prototypes have been sent out. I have to say, it's looking pretty good! I have ordered one myself and I'd be happy to discuss it further when I get it. Contrary to the pinephone/pinetab, this device is targeting a wide audience of end users and not just enthusiasts and developers. It uses relatively high end components, but likely as a result it does not have mainline Linux kernel support. (yet?) Here's another look from TuxPhones: I seem to recall that some "le reddit sleuth" decided that this was a complete scam and that they had nothing but photoshopped iPads and many people decided that they were right. ("We did it, reddit!")
