Want to watch videos from YouTube without using YouTube in an app on your phone/tablet? Try NewPipe. You can find it in F-droid.

Did you know that you can watch all YouTube videos without YT?

Invidious lets you watch all the videos, with the same title, so they're easy to find invidio.us/

But it's easier to click a link someone shares, so what to do about that?

Well, I just found this Firefox extension that auto-redirects you from YT to Invidious! addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

There's even one that replaces all YT embeds! addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

Yeah! Added to my "must have" list addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

Latest news from the fairytale kingdom of :

The girlfriend of the minister of justice has been indicted for attacking their own home (spray painting very poorly written accusations of being racist) and setting fire to their own trash can and car(!).

This is the fifth minister of justice from the populist right wing Progress party in almost as many years. The rest where also outed by scandals, in case that wasn't obvious.


"she determined that there is no such thing as a trademark in an artistic style, and that DSE does not have an enforceable trademark in the typeface used for the title, so the use of a Seussian typeface for Oh, the Places You’ll Boldly Go! is not trademark infringement."

THIS is the rallying cry I needed on a Monday morning…

“But if we are going to talk about smashing patriarchy and dismantling systems of oppression (as we should!), we need to understand the role of surveillance and data exploitation in perpetuating and enhancing those systems”


Captcha just to read an article? Yeah, count me out, AEI

I want to share something I feel very attached to and that is the firestarter community magazine.


It is a artist magazine focusing on community, events, interviews and learning. It's a very good project and the magazines are made free to be downloaded again. To keep this is the magazine needs much more support and attention.

I want to install Ubuntu with the same changes to software, settings, etc on a few different machines. Can I make a USB with Ubuntu with my preferred changes on it that keeps the changes when I install it, or some other _simple_ way of doing this? Thanks!

Ok, so how do I follow someone on another instance?

Hey, who should I follow on Pixelfed, or other photobased social networks federating with Pixelfed?

Octodon is a nice general purpose instance. more
