"For anybody who is using Ubuntu and got the Thunderbird 60 update and now is no longer able to use Lightning

The solution is to remove Lightning, then run "sudo apt install xul-ext-lightning" to then get the correct version of lightning and your calender should still be intact."
Ahora a ver quรฉ pasa con los contactos sincronizados con #nextclud en @disroot ! :D
Semana divertida

It must be a standard to wait a day before posting pics on a new Mastodon account. Not a big deal, but annoying, none the less.

#TWIF #25 just went live!

Read about Tor Browser arriving in the Guardian Project repo, our enhanced @matrix room and our newest beta mirror:

Also covers 11 new apps including #Manyverse(!) and an earth-shattering 114 updated apps!

Agreed!!! @schestowitz: For work we've just had to use #google Hangouts (never did this before, not our choice); noteworthy: Google made us create a #gmail account (excuse me? I don't want Google #email but GOOG wants to boost numbers); also, giving mobile phone # a must! Scum.

Any good app to track battery drain?

I need to do some test in order to decide which app in better in this.

From #FDroid would be perfect.

Boosts welcomed!

We finally released #PeerTube v1!

Please upgrade ASAP: it fixes a vulnerability regarding HTTP signature.

Until the end of the year, we'll work on v1 support/bugfixes and add some moderation tools

Have a nice week ๐Ÿ˜‹

โš ๏ธ Mastodon 2.5.2 โš ๏ธ

Security backport release. Please update as soon as possible.

We need your help with #TWIF! The index updated again, and we now need to cover 9 new apps and 105 updates!

Which ones would you like to see covered in the next edition?

The eligible list is at as always.

" New study finds 5 of every 6 routers are inadequately updated for security flaws "

Clearly obvious to anyone that has a router, but I digress.

" What Is 5G? "

Please make note that the article makes, absolutely, no mention of its health implications, good nor bad. That may be by design, but I digress.
