It just hit me: how do creationists explain the existence of dogs? Especially the fact that there are different breeds of dogs.

na wczorajszym Marszu Równości we Wrocławiu szli ludzie z tęczowym bannerem reprezentując Pyszne.pl, więc - pomijając dyskusję o pinkwashingu - jest niezerowa szansa że homofoby zbulwersują się, zbojkotują, i zdechną z głodu

Before they will let me publish a new release of XScreenSaver on the "Play" [sic] store, Google, the most rapacious privacy violator ever, insists that a screensaver have a privacy policy.

This is where you come in!

I'd like this policy to be a series of bullet points: "Unlike Google, XScreenSaver will not [Thing.] An endless, concise catalog of their sins.

I need both your snark AND a link supporting your snark. It's critical for the joke to land. Include both.

Lukewarm take:

When I see general* "security advice" that mentions "do not use public WiFi" or "use a VPN", I am immediately suspicious about all other advice offered.

Yes, a decade ago that was a consideration, because most sites were not using HTTPS. Credentials were flying cleartext on the wire.

Today, almost all sites use HTTPS. Doesn't mean the risk is zero, but it's way lower.

*) "general" meaning "without a very specific threat model in mind", meant for general public, etc.

@rysiek on the other hand, not security related - many ISPs in Poland offer a discount (and actually show the discounted price as the main one, with some additional fine print) if you consent to having your traffic analysed for marketing. the WiFi in my apartment is provided by the company owning the building, and I'm willing to bet they agreed to every offer by the ISP. I'd probably rather have them analyze my interests in connecting to Mullvad servers than how often I order food online...

po raz pierwszy życiu u fryzjera byłem raczony small talkiem. bardzo ambiwalentne uczucia, bo z jednej strony small talk i rozmowa z innym człowiekiem, fujka, a z drugiej strony pani tak ślicznie delikatnie zaciągała po ukraińsku, omg

It's been a while since we've shown you a weird fad in medieval Christian art, so here's one you might enjoy - Lactatio Bernardi: The Lactation of St Bernard.

🇩🇪Heute berät die zuständige Arbeitsgruppe im Rat der EU über den neuesten, wahnwitzigen #Chatkontrolle-Vorschlag. Mit dem Konzept “#Uploadmoderation” sollen User jetzt erpresst werden:

Entweder, du erteilst der Totalüberwachung per Chatkontrolle deine “Zustimmung” oder du darfst keine Photos, Videos und Links mehr teilen.

Wir #Piraten sagen „Nein!“ zur Chatkontrolle. Gerade jetzt braucht es starke #digitaleFreiheitskämpfer im Europaparlament. Unterstütze uns mit deiner Stimme bei der #Europawahl!

@echo_pbreyer I've already posted my concerns during the "share your voice" period when the draft was introduced, and sent an email to my representative a while ago. is there anything more I can do, other than the genetic "spread the word"?

Have there been any exciting updates to the range of Mastodon apps lately? 🤔

I feel like a lot of app development - on iOS especially - has either slowed or halted, but happy to be proven wrong. 😅

I’m really looking forward to @ivory introducing the ability to ‘Browse other instances’. 👽

@matt @ivory it's a sign of the maturing ecosystem, isn't it? most of the major apps are now feature complete compared to the website, so instead of new stuff being constantly added, there's more of polishing and refining :)

okay, it's a slow part of my 24 h shift, so it's finally time to make a thread about the #FOSS apps that I use on my phone, most of them obtainable through @fdroidorg . I've trawled through its repositories many times over years, and managed to find a bunch of great software fitting my needs, so hopefully someone finds this useful as well.

Audire - https://github.com/alexmercerind/audire

a music recognition app. uses AUDD and Shazam database, and works great. there's no ads, no distractions, no subscription pushes. when you launch the app, you're greeted with a big mic button encouraging you to press it, and upon recognition will show a simple page with links to Spotify and Youtube. completely replaced Shazam and SoundHound for me.
