Our local #FDroid user-group today was great. Since it's holiday season, we had a bit fewer visitors, but that gave us a chance to have a lot of engaging indepth conversations and hands on experiences about topics like:
* verifying our binaries
* lineage device support
* F-Droid configuration
The instance social.masto.host is indirectly funded by LineageOS + F-Droid.
Earlier, I was replacing my phone every 2 years with a new version of the same series. But last year, when my phone was ready for replacement (too slow, no Android updates), I flashed LineageOS + F-Droid on it instead.
I saved € 187.5 by not buying a new phone. This instance costs € 5 per month.
P.S. I know the exact cost because I bought one for a family member.
'There was a 70% drop in Natural Killer (immune) cell activity following one night of only four hours of sleep.
Imagine the state of your immune system after weeks, if not months, of insufficient sleep.
It should perhaps then come as no surprise to learn that we now have significant links between short sleep and numerous forms of cancer. Currently the list includes cancer of the bowel, cancer of the prostate, and cancer of the breast.
In fact, the link between a lack of sleep and cancer is so pronounced, that recently the WHO decided to classify any form of nightime shift work as a probable carcinogen.
Short sleep predicts a shorter life – it predicts all cause mortality.'
#Privacy? I don't have anything to hide.
> Over the last 16 months, as I've debated this issue around the world, every single time somebody has said to me, "I don't really worry about invasions of privacy because I don't have anything to hide." I always say the same thing to them. I get out a pen, I write down my email address. I say, "Here's my email address. What I want you to do when you get home is email me the passwords to all of your email accounts, not just the nice, respectable work one in your name, but all of them, because I want to be able to just troll through what it is you're doing online, read what I want to read and publish whatever I find interesting. After all, if you're not a bad person, if you're doing nothing wrong, you should have nothing to hide." Not a single person has taken me up on that offer.
@polyplacophora @farlopito @fdroidorg Hi! Thank you for supporting us with a paid account. It means a lot. The process of publishing our app on F-droid has already started. We need to make a few steps before doing this. In the next couple of months it should be done. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
Use pre-paid plans and change SIM cards often.
Use LineageOS without Google Play services.
Turn off your phone and put it in a Faraday bag when you don't need it.
Start leaving your phone at home more often. It's more freeing.
