The screenshot I shared last night is basically just a different UI, like TweetDeck. Pixelfed will not start tracking behaviour via analytics, I should have made that more clear.

Feral Interactive developed GameMode 1.2 is released for optimizing Linux gaming.

Adds options about the default and desired governors, supports soft real-time scheduling on kernels with SCHED_ISO support and will then use renice to boost games to a higher priority, the GameMode service is now D-Bus activated not needed explicitly enabled by systemd, and the GameMode libraries are now properly versioned.

Joined on . I connected to an account, here, that I run. But, can't figure out how figure out cross-posting.

Hello nice #fediverse people!Today in the morning there were some rage again #pixelfed again - this time because they included insights/analytics shit.That's more than enough!The fediverse should stay free and open forever as an big nice community without tracking shit and also without brands, businesses and influencers who should have needed that insights shit.But did you know that #pixelfork is a thing now?It's meant to remove that tracking shit and respect the wishes of the community much more.For example there will be an federated timeline,the fediverses best feature which everybody likes.Are you interested in "Federated image sharing - Improved"?The official project account is at https://social.avareborn.de/@pixelfork and the Git repository is at https://notabug.org/pixelfork/pixelfork .Please note that the development will start as soon as Dansup releases federation support for Pixelfed so there's not that much to see now.

Is it possible to cross-post from Hubzilla to Mastodon? I'm searching for instructions, but haven't found any, yet.

"There’s an obvious connection between a decentralized internet, in which individuals create and oversee their own digital identities, and a functioning democracy, in which we make informed choices about who rules us and how we are ruled. Yet too few people make that link."

@dansup Fuck off brands,fuck off businesses and fuck off influencers.The fediverse is free without commercial shit and that's how it should stay.I don't want to see fucking commercial spam in my timeline.You shouldn't make them interested in the fediverse.They should stay away.They have what they need at Facebook and we have our spam-free fediverse.

There's a sweet #WebComic on Mastodon by Chris Hallbeck :blobaww:

Problems we are having with #Signal:
* It is and will remain centralized (clear strategy of *not* federating servers)
* It requires strong identifiers/selectors (phone#) to use
* Author disallows distribution by anyone but Google, although free/libre
* It keeps pushing away verification of fingerprint in interface
* It relies on Google+Amazon infrastructure
* Its funding is shady (OTF = Radio Free Asia = USG)

= clearly unethical choices, unjustifiable by accessibility or technological reasons.

I think the difference now is the all-pervasiveness of the social media oligopoly (and increasing monopolization of ISP industry -- wait till Comcast decides to merge with Facebook) and capitalization of data that comes from it.
