Familiar with :apple_inc: Swift, UIKit, and know your way around XCode? Want to help advance the state of #XMPP on #iOS? :xmpp: ๐Ÿ“ฑ We're looking for developers to help bring our iOS app over the finish line! ๐Ÿ

This will be a paid short-term project producing FLOSS. DM or email matthew@snikket.org if you're interested.

Not an iOS dev? That's okay, boosts appreciated too! ๐Ÿ™‚

Weird how "modern" has come to mean "measurably worse in almost every metric" within the scope of software

@herag I'm not going to lie, I've been tempted to switch back to Windows a few times when I've had to use it for work. But then a problem crops up and I remember why I use Linux. Because that way, when a problem comes up, I can actually fix the problems.

I've heard the phrase "Linux is free if you don't value your time" but in my experience, all of the time I've spent on Linux has a real substantial ROI compared to the time I spend on Windows.

Set up Tailscale (mesh VPN) recently. Super easy! It allowed me to take my Synology off the public internet, yet still sync photos to it from my phone, and without having to run a VPN server and worry about keys and firewalls and stuff. Everything is protected via my GitHub login with MFA required. And all on the free plan... I'm a happy customer. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Reposting because I love this :blobcatmelt:โ€‹

You can download the files at: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1b9yuhRzysl8JUFjybniQBLqRiKi0hXcV/view?usp=sharing

You'll need PCem v16 to run it (https://pcem-emulator.co.uk/)

Just place the cfg file into PCem's configs folder, and the disk image file into your hdd folder, and configure the machine to use the hdd image.

The #Signal messenger has become very problematic lately, and most of its problems come from it being centralised.

You may want to follow and support a decentralised messenger project instead, there are many of them on the Fediverse:

โžก๏ธ @snikket_im - New initiative giving XMPP servers & clients a newbie-friendly unified look and feel

โžก๏ธ @xmpp - The XMPP standards foundation

โžก๏ธ @matrix - Matrix is best known for its Element client

โžก๏ธ @delta - Messaging through email

โžก๏ธ @briar - P2P messaging
