@PaulaToThePeople @e_mydata @eff /e/ calculates a privacy rating of apps on their own (I have asked for clarification about the details). /e/ is not a part of Google, they use LineageOS as a base for their operating system and try to remove as much reporting back to Google as possible in the /e/ OS.

@e_mydata @eff Can you explain more your privacy rating system? Apple shows what information is shared about you to the app in an easy to understand list. /e/ privacy rating is based on exodus-privacy reports which simply list trackers found and the raw permissions the app is requesting. This is difficult for the average user to translate into what data is accessible by the app. There is a privacy rating in the e app store but no breakdown how this is calculated.

@snowdusk @gemlog Where do I leave the milk and cookies to ensure snowdusk will make his appearance?

@claudiom @snowdusk Oh man I realize now how many browsers have come and gone. It's like the guy who rattles off all the cars he's owned over the years. Let's see I think I used:
92- Mosiac (Mac)
95- Netscape (Mac)
96- IE (Windoze)
98- NetPositive (BeOS)
01- Opera (Mac)
04- Safari
08- Firefox (Mac)
16- Vivaldi (Mac/Linux)
18- Tor Browser

Big announcement time 🎉

This #keyoxide project started as a "labor of love" side project but the awesome community response clearly showed me it deserved even more attention and care.

I'm excited to announce that NLnet / @NGIZero will be funding the project, allowing me to dedicate my full time to it and contribute in my own way to our collective struggle for online identity and security.

I thank all of you for your motivating feedback. Now, we can really begin 😎


@freddy This and @andreas's website inspired me to modify my website menu and contacts to be in a pseudo-yaml format . 😆

@snowdusk Looks like withdrawal management, jonesing for some dorkwave. Feeling better?

Presidential debates weren't exclusionary before the CPD took over. Now you have to be a D or R t be on the stage. That's the way they want it.

Oh my, this may be my ultimate match-up. I was really into UBPorts until they locked down the system image, I just really enjoyed the interface. Now having this on top of Manjaro, what a dream!
