If anyone is wondering: the pic was not edited; every setting in was on auto except for focus. Not post processing beyond what is done by the default script. And no, not a pics come out this good!!

That said, you don't need huge powerful but complex tools like or to make your photos look better. Imagine a simple to use app that lets you do basic stuff on the phone, like white balance or contrast correction, which could then take its time exporting at full res with all the heavy noise reduction algos without annoying the user while taking photos.

Does that sound like something you'd like to work on? 😁

I was just sitting there minding my own business, watching the kids football game IFK Bergshamra - IF Brommapojkarna 6 earlier today, when suddenly this little fellow being landed on my knee.

hello little guy! Thanks for calmly posing and letting me move my within just a few cm!

Hah, indeed:

"You know why people hate the tech industry?

Because they’ve wedged themselves into everything (regardless of how much sense it makes), and made it suck more, in pursuit of glorious advertising profits."

@dantalion cool! Not affiliated in any way, just manage to snag a few and they fit perfectly.

Now if we could get actual protective cases... So far I've avoided 3d-printing any of them because they all seem too bulky/ugly, so I'll probably just continue going caseless (it has enough bulk/weight already haha)

Rant: I am seriously sick of the "digital transformation" of everything. It's making every service, every form, every registration, WORSE, rather than improving processes that have been honed over decades and were working well up until now.

Can we undo this?!

Librem 5 is now $999 (a $300 Savings)! Due primarily to the overwhelming demand for the Librem 5, we were able to lower our component costs and are now able to pass that savings onto new customers.

When I read these I ALWAYS assume that the app can track something that the website can't and they WANT you to use the app for that reason.

J'essaie d'avoir le #roaming avec #Freemobile sur un #librem5

Ma nano sim fonctionne bien en France mais dès que je passe en Suisse où se trouve mon employeur je n'arrive pas à basculer.

Est ce que quelqu'un a testé cela sur une autre zone frontalière avec ce téléphone ou même un autre ?

Reboost apprécié

@worldsendless glad I could help out, hope it works out well for you

BTW, act is (or will be?) included in gitea as their actions runner; that's how I found out about it

People think that "It's OK for people to just want technology to work" (which it is) is like saying "It's OK for people to not know things" (which it is). But to the extent that they're saying it to argue against technologists advocating for open technology, it's humanity-defeating and just a fucking strawman.

The technologists are complaining about abusive designs that manipulate people by making the path of least resistance the one that, for example, destroys the concept of privacy.

When you respond to that with "well not everybody needs to understand everything," What you're actually saying is "It's OK for people to be MANIPULATED into maintaining their ignorance."

These companies have worked very hard to create a culture where computers are magic boxes to most people, so the vast majority of users remain vulnerable. You're not countercultural for thinking that's a good thing. You're a fucking mark.

I liked these quotes:

> It's not that I have something to hide. I have nothing I want you to see.

> You invade my privacy, it's nothing. I try to get it back, it's a crime.

Sure, Android might be "Open Source" good luck trying to tweak part of the core system without having to build and re-flash the ENTIRE OS, and probably format your phone.

Android was not built to be modified by anyone who doesn't use the term "end user" on a near daily basis.

and like, damn girl, we can do better than this
