@zath now has an icon! That is what he uses on other websites as well. Hopefully he will post more often here though....

The Last Day of 2018 on diaspora* by me:

diasp.org/posts/cba0f530ef9201

Since this is Qoto, I will post it here as well:

This is the last day of the year 2018. It is time for many to propose resolutions for them to do in 2019. I personally will start a 90 day reading plan. I am not sure if it is much of a resolution, but I am going to install an encrypted (Or maybe /Linux-libre) operating system on my main machine before I travel. I also will not be on diaspora* nor Mastodon for the next month.

I also have been thinking of what has happened in 2018. It has been an impressive year, and looking back I see some amazing things God has done in my life in particular. I cannot wait for what God has for me in this next year. Since I will be moving to Europe for a while (which is all I will say publicly).

Like many others, I will stay up until midnight and enjoy the festivities and the countdown. Like everyone else, I feel that this last New Year’s just passed, and am amazed at how soon 2019 has come.

This last year I have started two different projects which I plan to continue working on. Namely, (a Bible app system), and (a check-in system like KidCheck for daycares, Sunday Schools, etc.). If you have seen my previous post, you will know that I plan to do a lot of work on LibreCheck in the next few months (if you want to help out, please talk to me!).

What are you planning to do this next year?

I have been completely removed from Facebook for a full year. It has been the best year in recent memory. OBSERVATIONS:

1) I'm still "connected" to current events. I'm just not bombarded with a thousand "rage-bait" rants about it.

2) I'm still connected with everyone that matters. We've shared the responsibility of staying in touch. Sometimes it's on me to reach out, sometimes it's on them. The people who haven't kept up with me, were just a relationship of ceremony and convenience.

3) I'm substantially less depressed. Surprising no one, I guess. It didn't cure depression, but it alleviated that which it brought: A lot.

4) I'm still super social online. I have community here and a few other places. We do things together, and don't just try to whip ourselves into a fury.

5) I've gained a meaningful perspective: *MY* perspective. Getting away from the manipulative pieces of those social media sites has given me enough clarity to be, well... "me."

YMMV

Decentralize today.

Decentralize tomorrow.

Decentralize forever.

I am learning about , and have got it set up on my PC. It is interesting.

Upgrading to 4.20 on Antergos. I hear there is a speed hit...

How apps on Android share data with Facebook...

At least 61 % of apps automatically transfer data to Facebook the moment people open the app, whether they have a Facebook account or not, or whether they are logged into Facebook or not.

#mastodon makes the internet fun again, we need more places like this online. Places to have adventures and explore.

You want to know what happens when you don't have free speech? Ask Australians. This post, which talks about suppression and gives no details over the conviction in a high profile case, was taken down. The original is a 404:

The EFF opposed the Right to be Forgotten legislation for this reason, because it is more often used for censorship by the powerful to cover up their crimes.

has a clean and simple design, while being very powerful. It also is very eye-appealing.

As a scientist researching the possibility that our universe is a simulation, you and your team decide to throw hundreds of thousands of fireworks into the Grand Canyon. Upon setting them off, the frame rate slightly stutters.
