Hello folks,
we develop small #OpenSource #Apps for #Android.

Our apps:
- #Weather: Weather app with data from OpenWeatherMap
- #LibreTranslator: Small translation app based on LibreTranslate

Both apps are available for download in #FDroid and the source code can be found on #Codeberg.

ufw (a firewall) uses rule numbers when you want to, say, delete a rule. Does it display the rule numbers when you list them with ufw status?

No, of course not, that would be too easy (you’d win the game right away, where’s the fun in that?)

So, instead you have to type ufw status numbered.

Remember kids, beautiful defaults are for newbs and losers. Real gamers play in hard mode.

This is a really promising sign! The Fediverse can allow citizens to interact with public officials without having to give away personal data.

Was recently reflecting on this excellent piece by @jgoerzen comparing and contrasting p2p/federated/centralized systems:

The drawbacks for p2p and centralized systems seem to be mostly inherent to the technical requirements necessary for things to function.

The downsides of federation are more practical (who/how deploys and maintains the servers). Good reminder that organizational structures like technical "communes" need more emphasis!

Did you know that Spotify records and analyzes your voice and speech patterns to target their ads more accurately? Don't you ever wonder if they really need that to let you listen to music?

Do you know any blogs or websites that review music? We're looking for a source of music news to show on the dashboard - refer them to us if you think they'd like to partner up.

For those with a Pinephone keyboard, we forgot to include a driver for the charger, which is why it does not seem to charge even with the battery on. We should have this fixed shortly.

moxie seems to believe there are only two options for how services can be hosted: self-hosting or commercial hosting.

completely ignoring community hosting.

that reinforces my feel that community hosting is one of the biggest advantages of fedi.

(he is absolutely right that #web3 is crap, of course)

Shitposting aside, I think 2022 is going to be a great year for Linux on the desktop.

Would also be curious on folks thoughts on the licensing of such a collection. Does not seem like UG is paying any licensing fees for its user-contributed tabs, but it feels like if it was as easy as creating a public DB of tab files on GitHub, someone would have done it already....

My vision would be something similar to the Radio Browser [1] which maintains a dataset (of online radio stations) used by several open source apps. When a user of one of the apps contributes a new station, it benefits all the users of the other apps too....

Does anyone know of an open source data-set for guitar chords?

There are several great open source applications for creating and maintaining personal collections of tabs as well as several libraries and services that will scrape tabs from UG, but there does not seem to be any kind of community maintained set of guitar tabs. Can anyone point me to something I am missing here?
