Standard notes: what about don’t put all your eggs in one basket rule?

If the owner of the standard notes will now be a proton, doesn’t that contradict this principle? I have a proton email account but I don’t want it linked to my standard notes account. I don’t strongly trust companies that offer packaged services like google or Microsoft. I prefer to have one service from one company. I am...

brisk,

It’s e2e encrypted and locally encrypted. So the practical impact of the server is for syncing between devices.

The software has caused me endless problems though, and the free version has no support for formatting of any kind

Maybe tektites? Natural glass formed when lightning meteorites strikes sand. I only remember the name because they share it with the jumpy spiders from Zelda

brisk,

Oh look there’s a whole Wikipedia page on it

Possibly an accidental byproduct of metal working

brisk,

I am sorry for insulting your people

brisk,

There are a few PCB drones out there.

Most PCBs, even really cheap ones, are made from FR-4, which is a very robust fibreglass. It’s would be a pretty decent choice for drone components in general.

Not drones, but Carl Bugeja on YouTube makes some fascinating machines almost entirely out of PCBs (although he uses a lot of flex PCBs, not just FR-4).

brisk,

I appreciate the ambiguity in your comment created by the missing pronoun.

brisk,

It’s not clear from your post whether you’ve read the article. In case you haven’t, it’s not really about printers.

brisk,

It doesn’t look like there’s been any activity in 7 years, but your post reminded me of Uzbl, a set of browser components designed to apply the Unix philosophy

Apples4Ceasefire: Apple Employees Request Ceasefire Recognition (www.apples4ceasefire.com)

"We, current and previous employees of Apple Inc., wish to express our disappointment and shock at the lack of care and understanding this company has given the Palestinian community, not only abroad suffering in Gaza, but also towards our own team members and anyone who supports them within our stores and offices. "

brisk,

It’s a watermelon. It’s used as a symbol for Palestine due to it’s alignment with the colours of the flag

I don’t think there are too many people arguing against fission who are in favour of coal

brisk,

The coal plants are decommissioning due to costs, renewable energy is booming, and (obviously due to the ban) there is no local nuclear industry or expertise. Even if you manage to lift the ban, which nobody is trying to do*, nuclear would not be replacing coal plants here, but might divert renewable funding. In other countries I have no doubt building more nuclear could offset coal, not here.

  • The coalition claims to be in favour of nuclear power, but they’ve spruiked it before in opposition, and nothing gets tabled when they’re in power. It’s got as much chance of happening as high speed rail.
brisk,

Yep, and they’re far more progressive than any of the neoliberal bastards that travel there to make laws for the rest of us.

It’s markdown, you should be able to indent your lines by 4 spaces or fence with triple backtics to get code blocks. Your client’s editor may have a button to help

What non-FOSS software have you been unable to quit?

For me, Google video search, Google books (Internet Archive is good, but doesn’t always have the same stuff), Adobe InDesign (but in the process of learning LaTeX), and Typewise. As for the Google stuff, I liked Whoogle a lot, but almost all their instances seem to have been blocked or shut down. Also, apologies if this is...

brisk,

Podcast Addict I really want to use AntennaPod, but I can’t do without priority podcasts.

Also Feedly. Feeder (FOSS) is so close, but doesn’t allow different sorts for different feeds.

Is there anything unsavory about ProtonMail?

For some reason I have it in the back of my mind that they were at one point accused of being a honeypot for US intelligence because of their association with MIT. Probably complete BS, but maybe not. Are they as open source as they claim to be? Looks like they’re on github. F-Droid seems to think they have some Google...

brisk,

FYI Thunderbird now natively supports PGP (and possibly WKD?) without the need for Enigmail.

brisk,

They’re humorously interpreting your statement as you taking thousands of ereaders with you at once (rather than ebooks)

brisk,

Amazon artificially deflates the value of books, while also taking a humongous cut. If you want to support authors, Amazon is usually the worst place to buy from.
