For sure, this is a more wise view and I respect it and I usually have that kind of view as well, but at times I feel like saying it as it is: a bunch of idiots. After a while you get sick of these morons :D

I don't have any issue with you ranting about it, I just meant that this is probably why you don't hear it presented like that in the news and such.

Reminds me of Sasha's Prison Earth video. I wonder if there'd still be any nationalism left if people were allowed to freely move from one place to another without restrictions. Humans make up these imaginary ideas like borders and then use force to make everyone accept them.

Just a reminder that my Pixel 4a running @CalyxOS is still rock solid after months of use. No issues at all. No ads, no tracking, no bullshit. No need for a new phone for many years to come. Long live CalyxOS! :)

Nice! I also have a 4a and I was torn between Calyx and Graphene. My only issue is I need Android Auto and neither OS supports it on the 4a. Glad to hear Calyx has been stable on it, though.
in reply to Triangulum

@triangulum You shouldn't be using a 4a. It hasn't gotten a proper update from Google in over half a year.

Porting the device to new Android releases still leaves that major security hole open no matter what, and lots of hacks are also required because the vendor doesn't provide device support for new monthly/quarterly/yearly Android Open Source Project Releases.

in reply to CinnamonBytes

@triangulum You also don't want to encourage users to use insecure devices and mislead them, while putting additional workload on already very limited development resources.

A solution forward for you could be installing Graphene extended support as a temporary measure if money is an issue. Then buying a new Pixel device like the 8a and installing a GrapheneOS release on that and using Sandboxed Android Auto.

in reply to CinnamonBytes

Better than throwing that phone away. There are so many phones in the world that are not updated in years and I do not see an epidemic of phones getting hacked. Yes it is fucked up that google and the like do not provide updates for older phones, but with CalyxOS and the like you can make your phone usable for many many years.

in reply to Tio

@triangulum "Usable for years past end of life thanks to CalyxOS and the like" doesn't mean it's secure/private.
in reply to CinnamonBytes

@triangulum Much less using an OS made by a hostile group of developers known to harass and attack (both on social media and in real life) projects like GrapheneOS for years, trying to make people believe them by calling the GrapheneOS community and development team "insane", "delusional", "toxic" etc...
in reply to CinnamonBytes

@triangulum The Calyx Institute along with other projects who share their goal of spreading misinformation they routinely cooperate with has had a lengthy history of misleading users and lying to them in public. While in reality their OS and related projects doesn't harden anything at all and very much does the opposite.
in reply to CinnamonBytes

I trust Calyx so that's enough for me. We can't throw these phones away, that would be a lot more insane. We already throw some 350 cruiseships of ewaste every year. I have no idea where you got that gossip about Calyx and Graphene I never heard of this.
in reply to Tio

@triangulum
A lot of GrapheneOS users share the sentiment that they would like longer support from the manufacturer and Google has listened. But people shouldn't take it to an extreme and use an insecure device for years on end that jeopardizes their security/privacy, all for not throwing it away and upgrading to a more robust option.
in reply to CinnamonBytes

Additionally denying the attacks and trying to pretend you haven't heard about them, despite CalyxOS and company broadcasting it loudly for many years only proves that you have an active role in it. Which isn't something to be proud about...
in reply to CinnamonBytes

Have no idea what you talk about my friend...you are projecting too much.
in reply to Tio

You can keep denying it and keep making lies. But I'm going to end it off here. As I know what you and many others who support it will do next.

All I was trying to do was give solid advice on how to upgrade for one of the users in this thread. That is all.

in reply to CinnamonBytes

Yah you should stop with your assumptions. I have no clue what you are talking about so better not comment unless you provide some context/links to inform the uninformed ones about this "situation".
in reply to CinnamonBytes

What has Google listened to? So are they providing security support for their Pixel 4a? Or just the new Pixel as a marketing scheme? Because rendering millions of phones "dead" and unusable because you refuse to support it software-wise, should be a criminal act.

I can't trust you saying that CalyxOS for Pixel 4a is a security risk. I have no idea who you are or what you do. I bet most phones are not getting security updates anymore but we still see no epidemic of hacked devices and dead people around us.

I think you are greatly exaggerating and it seems to me you have some beef with Calyx for some reason.

in reply to CinnamonBytes

@GalacticBox "But people shouldn't take it to an extreme and use an insecure device for years on end"

Years on end? You make it sound like I've been hanging onto this phone for the last 10 years.

I bought the phone at release in August 2020. Google ended support for it in August 2023. Three years is an absolute joke.

My understanding is that Graphene gets the security updates via AOSP. Since Google no longer provides updates to the 4a then there is a definite security risk.

This man is asking to be killed (assisted suicide) because he will be kicked out of his home and he does not want to end up being homeless and sick - https://youtu.be/Up5k2Lx5SPI

Just a news from planet Earth where the "only" intelligent species in the Universe lives. Where they, humans, have so much shit (cars and toys, electronics and houses, food and clothes) that they create mountains of waste out of them. And yet, many people suffer on a daily basis because these "intelligent" humans do not realize that they are merely a more advanced species of ants who work all day, but never wonder for what. They trade trade trade....and that's all they do. They are blinded by the fantasy of their system that they themselves created and it is now obsolete.

We can provide for everyone with a decent life, trade-free. Now. Today. Not tomorrow.

There are humans out there who can recognize this injustice, the fact that people donated money to this man is proof of that. I hope we can all use our collective will to change the system for good, at least having a safety net for preventing poverty is a must.

Sad to hear that Michael Mosley has died and in such an unlucky situation after a short walk on a tiny Greek island. Probably because of the extreme heat and his age/health.

He made many great documentaries, lots of them are featured on VideoNeat.

Life is a short adventure and you have no clue when it is going to end.

You can read more here https://readeck.org - and ask for an account if you want one since for now there is no open registration feature, but we can make an account for anyone.

And do not forget to install the browser extension and connect to your read.trom.tf so you can save any webpage faster.

Please consider supporting TROM financially if you can so we can provide more such services - https://www.tromsite.com/donate/

What is "post update version" again?


!Friendica Admins I have updated my Friendica to the 2024.03 and I have "The database version is 1557/1557, the post update version is 1507/1550." - I wonder what is the post update version in this case and will it take a while to update?

Can this be the reason why I cannot follow some accounts. Like this https://mastodon.online/@readeck - fails with a blank page redirecting to https://social.trom.tf/contact/follow?url=https%3A%2F%2Fmastodon.online%2Fusers%2Freadeck&auto=1

It does work to follow others from the same server and overall seems like Friendica is working well.

I am also getting this whenever I unfollow a contact:

It took me quite some time to put together this 2 minutes section from the documentary. All of the footage had to make sense and I do not think any is stock footage. They are from different documentaries and such. Anyway I think it is a powerful way to showcase how humans evolved into what we see today as a "society". And all from these ape-like creatures.

For the past few months TROMjaro's HiDPI feature stopped working. Now we have fixed it. It means that if you (say) have a 4k screen and want to select window upscaling by 2x via the Appearance, then everything will scale up including the QT apps. That should be the default behavior in XFCE but it is not...if it weren't for this fix you would see the QT apps as tiny small apps with small buttons and fonts. Unusable.

We want to make TROMjaro easy to use and fucking sane. If you scale your desktop up or down, then everything should just work!
