@yearofands Just came across this painting (done in by ) and it reminded me of some of your photo portraits:

WTF?! My non-rooted phone had Maps pre-installed, but I only use for navigation etc.

Yesterday, I walked to a local restaurant, without using my phone, and had lunch there before walking back.

I never opened .

Today, I find a notification from Maps:
How was {restaurant name}?
Rate places to get smarter recommendations.

So it tracked and calculated where I ate without even opening my phone or the app.

Definitely time for /

If you run your own server, answer this:

Do you have a distributed, , automatic, offsite, free solution?

How amazing would it be to install a Nextcloud app and automatically have all your data encrypted, backed up around the world, on other Nextcloud installs rather than some mega-corp, for no cost beyond sharing some of your unused storage space?

Please help make this happen, by boosting and supporting this issue now:

Nice! ArmorPaint ( the FOSS substance painter contender in development by the team - armorpaint.org ) just added particle brushes to do effects based on particles such as rain soaked material, or dew beading on glass... 😍

Searching for an available company name just shouldn't be this much fun...

Animated procedural water from the ocean file in the Armory3D examples:

The only geometry here is two cubes (the grey one and one for the water)

I especially like how it makes objects in the water fade out as they get deeper.

Experimental, early days yet, but I have big ambitions! 😆

You can turn this off by switching off "Web & App Activity" at:

Really though, get the Hell off of Google and raise a stink about them doing this to millions of people without their consent!

Please Boost.



An interesting read on monetizing content in /#libre networks by creator @eliotberriot:


Very relevant to the growth of projects like , , , , and possibly even / / .

Personally, I just want to set a monthly budget to donate to (possibly on Liberapay, or possibly in each app) and have it split *automatically* based on how much I watch/listen(/read?) each creator.

Probably the greatest video you'll see this week. I present to you "Alex Jones Rants As An Indie Folk Song" aka "Jones Iver"

Enjoy in all it's Satan worshipping, baby eating glory:



All the , in the world don't matter if they're prohibitively hard for people to run (ie !).

That's how most of the world's ended up owned by and .

So it's almost criminal that the leading platform @yunohost is only getting €9.63 a week from their .

Go, ! Go!
