Learned of another self-hostable, privacy-focused front end similar to Teddit called Libreddit.

libredd.it

Source code: github.com/spikecodes/libreddi

Differences as of now are:
- Libreddit mirrors Reddit’s redesign while Teddit mirrors the old.
- Libreddit is written in Rust while Teddit is in Node.js.

@privacyint no. stop. don't.

Instead, use *different* strong random passwords for most of your services, and keep them in a password manager.

most password managers will help you generate strong random passwords automagically.

asking people to change passwords often is pushing them to use the same weak password across different services. and that's a way bigger security issue than an old password, especially if the old password is long and random.

I've been sleeping on Aurora Store on F-Droid. It's an easier and more pleasant experience, compared to downloading apps from APKMirror's limited selection.

I didn't even realize their Mastodon account was gone until this update. (To be fair, I've been away for a while.) This is truly unfortunate.

Really like LaunchyQt so far: it seems to respond faster than Wox does. Only has a few plugins, but currently I'm content with its basic functionalities.

Lemmy is a free open source federated alternative to Reddit. You can follow their official account at:

➡️ @LemmyDev

You can try the flagship instance at lemmy.ml

They have now introduced federation between Lemmy instances, so people on one Lemmy instance can interact with people on others. (They are working on federating with the rest of the Fediverse later.)
