Finally works with Snaps! You can now get the latest updates from the repository very easily!

I just posted on the Heb12 diaspora* page for the first time in a long time. Most people probably forgot about the software.

version 0.4.0 will not be directly compatible with older versions. The name it registers with your computer will be heb12-desktop instead of just heb12. This will allow for an easy addition of a cli program in the future without conflicting packages.

Google uses Gmail to track a history of things you buy — and it’s hard to delete

Google tracks a lot of what you buy, even if you purchased it elsewhere, like in a store or from Amazon.

Last week, CEO Sundar Pichai wrote a New York Times op-ed that said “privacy cannot be a luxury good.” But behind the scenes, Google is still collecting a lot of personal information from the services you use, such as Gmail, and some of it (...)

Adds localization support, and a French translation to test it out (thanks @stef20 !)

It is the 17th of May. Norwegian independance day. I am part Norwegian, and enjoy going to parades for the event, but there aren't any in the area in the country I am in right now.

I have been reading The 46th Mystic by Ted Dekker. I am really enjoying it so far. Ted Dekker is a good writer. He makes you feel engaged into the book and wait for the next part of the story.

"Telegram, the supposedly secure messaging app, has over 100 million users. You might even be one of them. If you are, you should probably stop using it right now...

"Microsoft loves Linux"...

Okay. Okay. Okay. went down again. This time for a couple days. I have upgraded the server, and there will be no problem for the foreseeable future. How about only scheduled downtime from now on!

We went from primitive airplanes to Apollo 11 in just 57 years. That's not a very long time, frankly.

Sorry for the downtime everyone! The server had run out of storage and I did not have time to fix it yesterday. It is entirely operational now. I believe I will need to look into external options for storing data in the future (like S3 except I don't want to rely upon Amazon).

The federated feed is extremely riddled with conservative stuff. All from Quoverum I believe.

But normally it is behind the scenes so people don't know unless something goes wrong with their system (which it did).
