why did nobody tell me that a fucking bartender in west virginia declared himself mayor he could lobby for a bridge to be built (because, like, kids were dropping out of school and all the industry in the area was closing because you couldn't get there, and ... after some of the local owning class decided that only the company got to use their service road)

and he reached out to various parts of the local government, and he got stonewalled, so he reached out to the foreign aid office of the fuckin' SOVIET UNION

and the soviets sent over a goddamn journalist to write about the situation, and the state pretty much immediately went "umm yeah we'll build the bridge" so that this village didn't have to get foreign aid from the Soviets

it's Vulcan, WV; look it up

i'm not sure what the authorized job someone who is "cancelled" is allowed to work, so i'm just reinterpreting calling for someone to be cancelled to be identical to calling for their death.

Im letzten Jahr haben ja einige meinen Tätigkeitsbericht als unseriös empfunden, weil in ein behördliches Dokument keine Karikaturen gehörten … Ich habe darüber nachgedacht: Im neuen Tätigkeitsbericht sind sieben Karikaturen und fünf Memes enthalten 😎

Auch große Anbieter wie #Samsung und #Telekom sind bei #MailApps nicht empfehlenswert – das zeigt unsere neueste Testreihe. Unsere drei Sieger für das Verwalten von E-Mails auf dem Handy kommen von kleinen Projekten. #FairEmail @k9mail_app @pEp4Privacy

"Police are warning students and universities not to access Sci-Hub, an "illegal website" that allows users to download scientific research papers normally locked behind expensive subscriptions."

Very bad indeed. That name again: Sci-Hub. Remember it so you can avoid it. Ahem.

ab sofort verwende ich den datenschutz als ausrede für alles was ich aus inkompetenz verkackt habe

Zum Thema #Tusky aus #PlayStore geworfen hab ich jetzt auch einen Artikel fuer @gnulinux veroeffentlicht: Dabei gehe ich auch auf aehnliche Vorkommnisse beim #Matrix Client #Element ein und dass sich an der Art,wie Apps verteilt werden und wie wir sie installieren,dringend etwas aendern muss.

In the last year Google has banned: the Element app, the LBRY app, and several Fediverse apps. If you get all of your apps from a single corporation, be it Google or Apple, you should make an effort to change that.

If you have an Android phone F-Droid is an alternative app repository, and it’s very easy to install! All of the previously mentioned apps have been available from F-Droid throughout being dropped from the Play Store.

If you have an iPhone, please consider other options for your next device. Apple does not respect you enough as a user to consider you possibly more capable of deciding what you should install on your phone than they are. That is absurd; please stop rewarding this behavior with your money.

Friendica with open registrations and we plan to keep it open forever
Nextcloud with 3GB storage + ability to add external storage; together with Only Office and a few other tools
Peertube with unlimited uploads (restricted to 2GB a day so we don't blow up the server) + Live + video conversion + a few plugins
SearX that we fine tuned to be as relevant as we could make it
Lufi to send files up to 3GB and 7 days storage
Etherpad with open access
RSS Bridge
