\#TheSecretChroniclesOfDrM is the unofficial sequel to #SecretMaryoChronicles. The latter's development stalled and eager #FLOSS / #FOSS developers forked it and created The Secret Chronicles of Dr. M!

For the #mac user great news!

Beside the fact that #Gimp 2.10.8 is already available, today I discovered that finally the #mac user the #gmic plugin finally working (almost) out of the box!

To make it working you have to install before, in case you haven't it, XQuartz then download the plugin: Mac OSX tgz archive (daily build), last you have to move the extracted files into the GIMP config folder.

The easy way to copy these files is open a terminal inside the folder where you extracted the plugins and paste this command:
cp -r \* ~/Library/Application\ Support/GIMP/2.10/plug-ins/
Enjoy them!

Der Releae Candidate von Kodi ist raus. Da werde ich wohl zu Weihnachten einige Tests damit machen. Unter anderm mit
Because the GPL and closed source binary blobs aren't compatible, we can't ship them along Kodi. What we can do is use them to play DRMed content if they are present on your system. Combine that with a specific provider add-on and you could access Netflix, HBO Go or your favorite legit content provider from inside Kodi.

After two years of hard work by all volunteers, either part of the team or of our great community we can finally say the last steps towards Kodi v18 are being made. In past years many things have changed, either visually or code wise and to be honest i can't even recall most. We as team would certainly like to thank every developer and user who ...

WOW.

This page here: https://bridge.suumitsu.eu/

Creates #Feeds of many webpages, just pick one and use the feed, it can do #RSS, #Atom, #JSON and more.

The page is just one that uses the #FLOSS project here: https://github.com/RSS-Bridge/rss-bridge

I am just amazed by this, they parse webpages and create feeds or use other available sources.
 
Despite the fact that the #gpl licenses are more restrictive than the #bsd and #mit licenses, the corporations prefer use the #gpl, especially version 2, them learned to use the gpl to defend themselves primarily from (ironically) the community and to bully the smaller companies.

One thinks for a corporation the BSD is a better option but how many are the relevant projects based on bsd and that have never released the source code? For me are very few, for example I can only remember the Playstation OS.

#gpl3 is better than gpl2 and for that reason is avoided from the most of the commercial entities. Since the moment that the gpl has been distorted and has been used to sell closed services on top of gpl softwar... show more

The @GetTogetherComm project needs help making an open source federated alternative to MeetUp.com.


You can already use their first instance (https://gettogether.community), but they need help with building the federation side of things, so that instances can link together and with the rest of the Fediverse.

If you're a coder and interested in helping, you may want to take a look at this post:

How does Qubes OS provide security?


Qubes takes an approach called security by compartmentalization, which allows you to compartmentalize the various parts of your digital life into securely isolated compartments called qubes.

This approach allows you to keep the different things you do on your computer securely separated from each other in isolated qubes so that one qube getting compromised won’t affect the others. For example, you might have one qube for visiting unt... show more

#Telfie bids farewell. Before them, #GetGlue / #TVtag also bid farewell. Maybe it is time to do a #FLOSS / #FOSS implementation that is #DDFON? That is, "decentralised, distributed, federated, open, network".

What do you think?

Write Freely federates with ActivityPub so you can follow its blogs from the fediverse. The platform looks very minimalist and clean, the idea is to focus on the text rather than the layout.

There should be an official launch announcement soon by the official blog at https://blog.writefreely.org/

My (bad) experience with #Technoethical


First the good things:
- you get #librehardware
- preinstalled with a linux-libre distro
- they donate some money to #floss projects

The bad things:
- waiting weeks for email answers
- delivery takes weeks longer
- hardware isn't fully working as specified
- hw is partly not the specified one
- negative reviews will not be released on their website

If you thinking about buying libre hardware, there are also some other shops available, don't pratfall on this company.

The free libre open source analytics software Matomo (formerly known as Piwik) is now on the fediverse:

@Matomo

They also have a website:

https://matomo.org/

The software costs nothing if you self-host, and they also offer a paid hosted option for people who prefer it.

Unlike Google Analytics, Matomo's data stays entirely on the site that uses it. No one else has access to it, so there's no way for it to be aggregated across many sites.

It respects "Do not track" and has a wide range of privacy options to let site owners gather only the minimum required data.

Friclicli status update: More UI and README


I have added more UI parts to friclicli and the frame of a main window with keybindings for the navigation is now available. Furthermore I added a very basic README file with compiling instructions and an explaination why friclicli is developed.

About the project:

Friclicli will (hopefully) be a CLI based client for the decentralised social network Friendica. It is written in C and licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v3. The source code is available on GitLab:
