What Apple is going to do to PWAs in less than two weeks in the EU is dastardly.

Their goal is to remove the only versions of Push, Fullscreen, Homescreen Icons, and Badging that didn't require paying them to be in the App Store *and make sure no other browser can have them either*.

They tried to sneak it under the noise of the alt-store drama, in a clearly premeditated fashion.

It's no exaggeration to say they've gone to war with the web & we don't owe the benefit of the doubt ever again.

Ship 28 was removed from Booster 10 this morning and crews are currently working on the hot stage ring clamps.

@dantalion Its been the only thing i have been using. Together with Gnome Disks as the app to actually perform the create image, or restore image function in a GUI.

I just backed up my entire phones eMMC storage using github.com/dreemurrs-embedded/ no propertairy weird apps with limitations no nothing.

Just a bootloader that makes the internal storage appear as removable drive.

I never have to fear about reconfiguring my phone, losing app data or configuration again.

Brick the phone, just reflash the last complete image backup and we are back.

I can't understate how mindblowingly powerful this is

@Gargron targeted email blocking can be just as bad as targeted IP blocking it should not be assumed that every disposable email = spam, or every user connecting from an IP that spams also uses the connection to spam. I think having the ability to create fake accounts should be part of fediverse freedom. Performing some content checking to determine if it is a bot and limiting rate of spam postings on the content side might be an alternative.

Happy I ❤️ Free Software Day everyone! Thank you to all the #FreeSoftware contributors out there who support #softwarefreedom ❤️❤️❤️ #ilovefs

Don't let this day pass without saying thank you! sharepic.fsfe.org/#ilovefs

After being sent this abomination of a link (the actual link is 34 character, the tracking IDs total 486 characters), I got the idea that not only could Chatty strip out the tracking IDs from a URL from display, but it would could also auto remove them when you send a message: gitlab.gnome.org/World/Chatty/

Because friends don't let friends send tracking IDs.

Starship 28 is sitting outside of the high bay this morning. This will be the next Starship to launch.

In addition to the new handbook, GNOME also has a shiny new release schedule page:

UI freeze in 10 days... 😬

There is a missing feature or something not implemented my matrix servers as an option as far as i can tell. You can currently follow someone, but there is no way to reduce the frequency of posts to show from that follow. Missing options:
1. show one post a day
2. show three posts a day
3. show 10 posts a day
4. show all

This is a problem also in other apps including RSS feeds, freetube, etc

Limit feed frequency of users you follow. Even Instagram or Facebook doesnt have that.

@agx played around with the small homebar in postmarket OS with a Librem , i think the finger detection area at the bottom for long press may need to be expanded or made with more margin, i found it hard to popup the keyboard as it required too precise of touch input, this either results in keyboard not unfolding, or when using with firefox activating menues whhen used with firefox bottom menue functionality

@thelinuxEXP @tlenewspodcast I have had this exact newbee experience with wine, proton, and trying 4 different launchers with very different outcomes and performance for Rebel Galaxy Outlaw, took me about 2 weeks and now runs stable with RADV, Vulkan, Steam Proton Experimental but FPS seem to be less than Heroic using Wine

@kramo this should improve mobile use quite a but and one thumb operation

@alpinelinux why is it so hard to enable Zram in Alpine Linux, specifically zram that is persistent across reboots?
