Does anyone have suggestions of contacts and calendar apps alternative to Google’s on Android? I don’t know how to phrase it nor do I know if it is asking too much, but I’d like alternatives that make sense to use, that is, that offer some form of privacy. If I’m going to be tracked anyway I guess I’ll stick with the stock ones. Thanks!

Hey there. I've been away from social media and Mastodon for a while and noticed now there is this account redirect feature. Googled it and could not find up-to-date info on what this does exactly. Could anyone help me with this, please?

I’ll get back to something I said a while ago: I definitely see an advantage of micro.blog over Mastodon in that the former let’s you own your content much more than the latter. And now you can even post from micro.blog to Mastodon since it’s compatible with ActivityPub. If you stop and think, Mastodon is still a silo. I’d like to see people discuss its pros and cons.

I keep asking myself how much longer will it take until nobody can stand those photos with that flat blurred background so characteristic of every smartphone in 2018. Looks fake as hell...

Does anybody out there on the fediverse have a Google Pixel 2? I’d like to know how is the sound output on headphones with the dongle.

Having my whole email history accessible is handy, but email accounts that respect users’ privacy are expensive if one is to store 10+ GB that grows day by day. So, in case anyone is interested, here’s my plan: I have an “unlimited” Google Drive from work (G Suite). I’ll regularly have Thunderbird export my emails in plain-text+attachments to a Cryptomator vault inside Google Drive. Then Google can’t read them but I can, even from mobile. Just have to figure out how to automate this.

Anyone here uses/used DAVdroid? Any advice? I see it's open source, but, anyway, is it trustworthy?

@shoutcacophony musician, great... But when I saw AnCom, well, that’s when I decided I would follow you. Seems like we’re getting rarer each day. Most people who define themselves as anarchists nowadays are actually AnCaps...

Hey there, coming back after a long time away. Still interested in everything I said in my : , , , , etc. and still interested in finding more musicians around here.

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.
