Kommt vorbei, lässt uns über FLOSS Smarthome reden!

Come and let us speak about FLOSS Smarthome!

Matrix Room

Google removed @k9mail from the Play Store without prior notice because they objected to the following text in the app description (that has been the same for more than a year):

(People sometimes call K-9: K9, K9 Mail, K-9 Email, K9 Email, K9 E-Mail, k9mail or k9email.)

I was notified that @tateisu's Mastodon app "Subway Tooter" has received a warning from the Google Play Store citing user-generated content that "incites discrimination".

A Mastodon app does not host or promote any content. The user types the address to connect to. The responsibility of moderating resides with that server. So unless Google is going to drop Chrome, Firefox and Opera from its platform, this is completely out of line.

Wie kann ich als einfacher Fachinformatiker mit Open Source arbeiten? Leider habe ich nur Erfahrungen mit Windows Server und dergleichen. Programmieren kann ich auch nicht. Welche beruflichen Einstiegsmöglichkeiten oder Weiterbildungen gibt es? Wo und wie kann ich anfangen. Mit meinem FISI Horizont kann ich momentan nicht sehr weit schauen. Vielleicht hilft mit jemand über den Tellerrand zu schauen. Vielen dank!

"in the 10+ years since the feature was added, we now find that half of the DNS root server traffic is very likely due to Chromium’s probes. That equates to about 60 billion queries to the root server system on a typical day."

This is absolutely bonkers.

Been doing some work on the app, trying to make the login process more robust and warning users if they're not logging in to a Pixelfed instance. Also trying to reduce technical debt somewhat.

What is the n° 1 thing you want fixed, changed or added first in PixelDroid? Answer here, or open an issue in our GitLab so we can get to it 😉

Does anyone know how to set up a face headset microphone + some bluetooth speaker? In classrooms with face mask some students will not hear me very well. @Gina perhaps know some. Thanks in advance, I also searched for transparent face mask for deaf people but I don't know the level of protection of such masks rather than aproved by Governements. #coronavirus #classroom #education #teaching How do you set up for next classes in the season 2020-2021?

@rixx If i am looking through your book reviews on, it seems you are only reading books in English recently? Or is it to keep the site almost in English and you reading some books in German?

Just a thought i had: As i am scrolling through the lists year by year, it would be nice to have the top navigation with the years duplicated at the bottom - for laziness reasons.
