I love how Mastodon is 100% functional and contains zero trackers.

It's almost as if you don't need trackers to make a functioning site and any trackers on other sites are wholly unnecessary and should be fought against on every possible level...

Android: hey do you want me automatically turn on wifi and connect to a high speed network when one is available?

Me: okay but if wifi is off how do you know when there are available networks?

Android: ...

Me: ...

Android: you ask too many questions

The irony of me wasting time trying to get my Pomodoro plugin working instead of actually working are not lost on me.

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

A comforting reality check after days of talking about requirements and tickets.

@Purism Is there anyway to use tunnel on Linux? Would I have to export the opvn or something? I don't see an option for that.

@purism is there an admin account to follow on social.librem.one like some other mastodon instances have?

Guess which two apps arrived in F-Droid today?

There's a little bug gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroid-websi that means new apps aren't linking properly on the website search.f-droid.org/?q=librem , but you'll find them via the client!
