I just *love* stuck data exports.
They're the best.
Getting back into doing some space art and I'm so very excited x3
I haven't had this drive to do art for several years!
How is everybody today?
And don't give me that "but I'm using it over WiFi/Bluetooth/messenger pidgeons" bullshit. Your mobile phones baseband (the chip used to connect to cell towers) is a complete blackbox with its own OS.
Combine this with shit like glued-in batteries and you get a mobile tracking device you can't ever reliably turn off without just outright smashing the whole thing with a sledgehammer.
I mean, whenever you use a mobile app, you're locatable because your phone connects to the nearest cell tower.
And we already know that this sort of data is routinely used for "targeted" killings in drone warfare.
We also know that government organizations set up fake cell towers (stingrays being the most famous) at demonstrations to snoop on who is there and (at least trying) to get into their phones.
I know this is at least true for the US and Germany, but I'm expecting this to be routine.
I absolutely hate how new messaging tools are always mobile-only.
I don't trust mobile phones hardware and I don't trust their software either.
I have no need to have my movements and connections to people tracked 24/7 and I have even less need of supplying messaging apps with globally unique identifiers associated to me (like, you know, a *phone number*).
IMO this is the main weakness of pretty much every messaging app of the last decade and it'll bite y'all in the arse sooner or later.
Just fixed my screen tearing issue in Linux and I could cry with happiness.
"Bookmark all tabs" auto-creates a folder and I'm in love.
I can now sorta save work progress research into a folder and then "open all in tabs" later when I'm ready to work again.
Why did I not know this before... I am sure this has been a thing for *years*
Currently there's a discussion on the projects GitHub, and if you know anything that may help us that's the place to go. Please try to read the conversation before pitching in though!
I selected "cybre light" and now I can't select the default cybre skin. 😂 I'm stuck with the pink, I guess.
