Anyone knows how smartwatches from Garmin or Casio / their respective apps are privacy-wise?

We just received a notification letter from DHL that a neighbor received our package. The name of the neighbor on the notification is my wife’s maiden name 😁

@liaizon @Gargron Are you certain that the last book is about the software, not the animal? 😁

Linus Torvalds: Git is a distributed version control system, which means even if you lose a remote, you still have your local copy, so your code is safe, unlike centralized VCSes.

Developer Community: wut?

Microsoft: Hmm. How about you use our Visual Studio Online and push it to GitHub, both hosted on our computers, so that you don't have a local copy?

Developer Community: Yaay! Such innovation! Very cloud! Much wow! 🎉

Trump: Thou shall not use US services.

Developers: Where's my code? 😭

@tomasino @ChrisWere Master PDF Editor is really nice. Wish there were a FOSS equivalent...

@angristan The author does not understand what decentrialized means. There is not THE code of conduct and the are not THE moderators.

Mastodon is free. Choose the instance that fits your desires.

@Gargron Cool they transfer to Mastodon. Would be even cooler if they joined different instances or found an Indian one.

@PawanKamboj @Gargron Mastodon is a part of the fediverse. Other social applications (pixelfed, peertube,...) that support the AcitivityPub protocol can interact with eachother.

So I’m trying to sign up for a Facebook account again (stricly not going use it for anything except trading of old computer crap and Magic cards); and it’s a horror show.

They require a phone number (can sort of work around with a messaging service) but also they require a photo of your face that they do their creepy AI stuff on to “check if it’s really you”.

I’m in “manual review” for the “security of our community” now. What the fuck even.

@BUNDjugend @nuron Grundsätzlich unterstütze ich eure Botschaft, aber die Interpretation von Fakten sollte man schon kennzeichnen.

Wer sagt, dass sich 7000 Menschen keine Fahrkarte gekauft haben, weil sie kein Geld dafür haben? Es gibt Menschen, die kaufen keine Fahrkarte um Geld lieber für andere (nicht lebensnotwendige) Dinge auszugeben.
