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.

Hello and welcome to Mastodon! You might stumble a bit getting to know the place/culture, and that's okay.
While it might look similar, in my experience most of the fediverse is more genuine and accepting than Twitter. You don't have to be as on edge when posting. You don't have to be "this is my opinion, fight me".
We're super trans-friendly, non-binary friendly, furry-friendly (and not just on meow), disabled-friendly, autism-friendly, etc. Relax.
Anyone here uses/used DAVdroid? Any advice? I see it's open source, but, anyway, is it trustworthy?

Happy new year, everybody! I was wondering: anyone here uses Micro.blog?
One day soon… Show more
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
