I made a flow chart of which #Mastodon posts end up in which timelines!

So, you can see how each instance will have a different local timeline, and even a slightly different federated timeline - and you can see why the federated timeline moves so much faster than the local one, too.

> "The fact that the infection may not cause clinical symptoms," insisted a statement filed from Barr's team, "is not an indication that it does not exist."

As it comes out, the 2003 lawsuit filed by Andrew Wakefield and Richard Barr against MMR vaccine manufacturers, had medical base just as solid as Soviet "symptomless schizophrenia" 🤦‍♂️


Yes, /e/ does its job as a ROM but also, more importantly, as the server side services that are actually maintained by someone.

@kmic Haven't watched Lost but I guess it's some dramatic part of the plot :) That's what I do on some weekends - I go to caves in Mendip for exploration and surveying :)

Spot in the studio 😛 - this is a completely unrelated program by Masha Borzunova, Russian journalist youtube.com/watch?v=bS02jxDWgP

You can see straight away who was doing some real work down in the cave! (or who didn't wash their oversuit ;)

How many people remember that #StreetComplete is a thing? If you're #geocaching or playing #Pokemon Go, you might consider adding StreetComplete to the mix to help improve #OpenStreetMap while you're at it!

@dazinism @amolith

I've never really owned a FairPhone. I like the idea behind it but I like the idea of spending $500 for a new smartphone much less. I'm just switching from one 2-3 years old used smartphone to another, flashing them with /e/ or LineageOS (depending on hardware compatibility).

@dazinism @amolith

You're right about the priorities, which is precisely why I guess neither LineageOS nor /e/ made a big fuss of it. But then you had the wave of people making a whole scandal based on this, humbly described above as "some privacy concerns" 😂

As for 204, Google gets your IP and User-Agent as minimum, and I agree that people have right not to want to share this with them. And "standing out" assumes you're under DPI, which is a rare threat scenario.

Vous vous souvenez du #TrottinetteGate, ces chercheurs qui pour prouver qu'un soi-disant journal scientifique utilisé par les raoultiens était bidon, lui avaient soumis un article sur « Trottinette et Covid-19 » (et il avait été accepté) ?

De tels journaux pipeaux, qui publient n'importe quoi, il y en a d'autres. Par exemple, ici, un article sur le trou noir au centre de la Terre qui fait communiquer l'ADN id-press.eu/mjms/article/view/

J'adore le fait qu'un des auteurs soit psychiatre.

@dump_stack @kmic Doesn't seem to work on my microG but on OP6T I had to go with LineageOS+Magisk so every upgrade is a manual one.

NHS Covid-19 won't run unless you update Google Play Services" <-- which effectively prevents it from running on any device other than Google certified.

Need to securely receive or send files? With Firefox Send gone, #Nextcloud is one of your best options!

Public reminder that The Eye exists and hosts a bunch of content, including audiobook mp3 files, books, games, etc.


There's Dune, Neuromancer, etc. all as audiobooks in mp3 format:



Yes - Google 😂 This will be announced as a great success and way to preserve Mozilla, whose management will get third-row but well-paid roles in Chrome team, and then Gecko will be finally buried 🤦‍♂️


At this rate, I see Mozilla effectively dead by 2022.

Firefox usage is down 85% despite Mozilla's top exec pay going up 400%
