sudo apt uninstall firefox-esr chromium

doesn't work?

@getimiskon You'd be ashamed of how I butcher your language.

@joaopinheiro It's just a matter of memorability and initial perceptions.

Is it unwise to invent new words for the name of a new company, website, or project?

I have a habit of coming up with names by manipulating Greek words until I get something unique.

@zachdecook You might want to consider proxying from Gemini to the web. With kineto for example.sr.ht/~sircmpwn/kineto/

I think it would very interesting to meet up with some people from the Fediverse in real life.

There certainly are many others in my area who are on the Fediverse, considering the population and the reputation for the area to be a haven for technology enthusiasts.

Sorry, this is a popular misquote of C.S. Lewis. I just realized that.

Here's the context of the quote. He was actually *disagreeing* with the point.

> Do not let your happiness depend on something you may lose. If love is to be a blessing, not a misery, it must be for the only Beloved who will never pass away.Of course this is excellent sense. Don't put your goods in a leaky vessel. Don't spend too much on a house you may be turned out of. And there is no man alive who responds more naturally than I to such canny maxims. I am a safety-first creature. Of all arguments against love none makes so strong an appeal to my nature as "Careful! This might lead you to suffering". To my nature, my temperament, yes. Not to my conscience. When I respond to that appeal I seem to myself to be a thousand miles away from Christ. If I am sure of anything I am sure that His teaching was never meant to confirm my congenital preference for safe investments and limited liabilities.

@d599f84e Ah yes. You are right, and apparently that quote takes C.S. Lewis out of context---he really was saying something similar to your point.

@d599f84e Hmm.. I'm interested in your opinion. Do you care to elaborate?

"Don't let your happiness depend on something you may lose."

@arh I believe that every Electron application includes binary blobs without source. It's the same problem as Chromium.

@Big_Diggity Something I picked up from @zudn. It's short for "Time Zone Appropriate Greeting"

Good evening or ! How are you all doing today?

@dmoonfire @joerebelloharley Just allocate a few gigabytes up front and you don't have to worry about it. 😂

@Big_Diggity Honestly that just sounds creepy. I understand why you'd like a privacy-friendly alternative. That also doesn't sound to complicated to make if it doesn't exist already.

@evelynyap Originally I planned to be stricter, but I ended up loosening it up as I went along.
