Anyone here uses/used DAVdroid? Any advice? I see it's open source, but, anyway, is it trustworthy?
After watching Dunkirk, my conclusion is that Christopher Nolan and Hans Zimmer deserve each other. Both are entirely dependent on gimmicks to convey their artistic identities and clearly favor effect over substance.
Happy new year, everybody! I was wondering: anyone here uses Micro.blog?
Those who know and love Brazilian music will miss drummer, singer and composer Wilson das Neves. RIP.
Every time I see rightists trying to make their history look better by saying that Nazism was a left-wing movement I ask myself what do they have to say about Pinochet...
Chromecast, if you are going to ignore what I call 'soft' network policy, I'll make it 'hard' network policy.
For those that don't know, the Google Chromecast device uses Google Public DNS out of the box and ignores anything the resolver values it gets from DHCP.
The only way to force it to use DHCP provided resolvers is to block it's Google Public DNS access.
Maybe posting this here is a bit like preaching to the choir, but, anyway, I think everybody should give it some attention: https://corydoctorow.miraheze.org/wiki/My_talk_on_the_Internet_of_Things,_wealth_disparity,_surveillance,_evidence-based_policy_and_the_future_of_the_world

Anarchism and free-market Show more
I think AnCaps and Libertarians are naive in their 'each one chooses where they'll put their money on' etc. Take a tech company that implements ways to lock their users in their ecosystem. Ok, they're in their right to do so and users choose to stay there, but it seems to me that to think this way is to forget the fundamental anarchist insight that whenever one has power over another they'll abuse this power. Just look at where AppStores are leading us all.
why don't we share server costs via torrent?
like ppl viewing s website sharing this data with other ppl just started to view the webside.
And you even don't need fast upload rates as you can just have many small packadges.
Is there any argument speaking against that, beside the one it's under development.

#Firefox! As much as I like to complain about its bugs, the #Mozilla community has been very hard at work on fixing things and there is also a ton of work on a new rendering backend that promises to be the fastest among the mainstream #browser pack. Tbh it's still my favourite browser by far.

Hi! I've been using mastodon for a long time over at @verydumb and @turbodragon , but i've been thinking of making an account here for awhile too! Right now I'm mainly doing drawings, however I also do music and sometimes animation (which I really need to do more of)!
My music is mainly electronic, ambient-ish stuff, which is over at https://soundcloud.com/a-blank-page/tracks
I'm hoping that having an account here will help motivate me to do more art, I want to try to eventually get to the point that I'm getting out a piece a week!
Also uh here's some of my recent drawings down here!
Spotify is the new "I'm offering you a place to showcase your music and get noticed"...
