A reminder that our tromsite.com domain is blocked by Google and thus we cannot send any emails form our tromsite.com domain to any Gmail accounts... We have tried to fix this but so far no luck.

Google is an ad company so better not use Gmail in the first place.

in reply to TROM

With plenty of good alternatives such as Tuta and Protonmail, among others, there is zero reason to use Gmail if you care about privacy or security.

Heads-up, the default theme pack we use for TROMjaro got an update and basically some of the variants do not work anymore. These ones do not work:

Problem is, one of those variants that do not work is the default TROMjaro theme....for now change to a working one.

We will look into it and try to fix it soonish.

One is a billionaire who is selling all of his books, the other one is a quite-broke human who has the courage and decency to provide her book online for free. Trade-Free. No ads, no data collection, no subscribe-here-to-read bullshit.

That's the world in which we live. The ones who make a fortune are trained and incentivized to not even share their "must read" books for free, despite having so much wealth.

Oh look, Bill Gates released a book about "How to Avoid a Climate Disaster"! It must be important.... so it is worth 18$ to read.

Grab @Sasha 's book from here https://www.bigworldsmallsasha.com/book/ - she also talks a lot about Climate Change, solutions, and a new kind of worldview.

I would never take climate advice from Bill Gates or any billionaire for that matter.
in reply to TROM

does Bill yet again promote nuclear power which is expensive and can be controlled by the few? Or has he learned that renewables are the way.

This is the description from our federated page:

This project argues that trade is the origin of most problems: from climate change to slavery, waste and pollution, corruption, crime, you name it. And if we understand the cause, we have a chance to come up with realistic solutions. We backup up these claims via documentaries, books and videos that are freely available for everyone.

You can find all of our work here https://www.tromsite.com/

Hope that helps a bit. We've been doing a lot of online "activism" since 2011. We have a lot of materials but if there is one we would recommend is the documentary we've released last year: https://www.tromsite.com/documentaries/trom2/

Recently a backdoor was discovered in a core package that pretty much all Linux distributions use. Read more here. Since TROMjaro is a Manjaro fork (thus Arch) is very likely to no be affected by it. However it is better to be safe than sorry.

Thank you so much Eduard for becoming the 77th supporter of TROM! We run a unique fundraiser for TROM in that we need only 200 people to donate 5 Euros a month in order to support us for the long run.

Distributed support so that it won't put a big toll on anyone, and a limited goal so that we do not get rich.

If you appreciate the so many things that we do at TROM (see https://www.tromsite.com) then please consider supporting us.

mastodon has what, 15 million users ?
hard to say with twitter, but FB is so much larger we aren't even round off error
and , at least in biological science, most people are still on twitter

so why do you think anyone will care ?
aside from you and me and one or two others ?

Rokosun reshared this.

in reply to OddOpinions5

I for one started to care more when my videos started to be banned on those platforms, alongside some of my posts. Videos and posts that were educational and I never made any money off of them. So I, being hurt, started to care more about using other platforms. Thus, pain. That combined with my understanding about how these platforms like ytb, twitter, fb and the like operate, that they are in fact businesses/markets and not "networks".

So I think that's one way for people to start to care about changing some of their digital habits: to be extremely pissed off at those platforms, while at the same time have some curiosity to try something different.

It is very difficult, but from my experience what works is to be an example. I moved and gave no fucks about the other platforms so if anyone wanted to follow our TROM project or me, they had no choice but to move too. I made a bunch of people switch to these other alternatives.

Help instead of throwing away!

Many people are unable to participate in the digital world and e-learning because they or their supporting institutions cannot afford the appropriate equipment. “PCs for All” is doing something about it.

The non-profit organization “PCs for All” accepts used PCs, laptops, monitors and accessories in the form of donations. These devices are processed by our team and then given free of charge to schools, charitable NGOs and people who cannot afford them themselves.

The children and young people receive a fully functional device and can learn more easily for school, become smart and keep in touch with their family and friends.

Our Friendica instance got updated to the latest stable and all of our custom themes were updated and we added 2 more: Brown and Grey.


Go to Settings - Display to test them out.

They will be shared with the Friendica's developers if they want to include them in the default Friendica's themes or get some ideas about future changes.

Big thanks to these people who create Friendica for being so awesome and for keeping Friendica so useful and feature-rich!

GNUnet

The conventional Internet is currently like a system of roads with deep potholes and highwaymen all over the place. Even if you still can use the roads (e.g. send emails, or browse websites) your vehicle might get hijacked, damaged, or long arms might reach into its back and steal your items (data) to use it against you and sell it to others – while you can’t even notice the thievery nor accuse and hold the scroungers accountable. The Internet was not designed with security in mind: protecting against address forgery, routers learning metadata, or choosing trustworthy third parties is nontrivial and sometimes impossible.

Since there are still some people who donate regularly via Patreon or Liberapay for our project, we have added that amount of money to our 200 for TROM campaign, as "people" supporting us. In a way that would be around 76 people out of 200 that we need. https://www.tromsite.com/donate/

Not bad. Almost 40% of the support that we need.

If we'll reach 100% then TROM will be sustainable indefinitely.

The plastic industry knowingly pushed recycling myth for decades, new report finds https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/the-plastic-industry-knowingly-pushed-recycling-myth-for-decades-new-report-finds

Of course...one must be very skeptical when the companies producing plastic are so keen about "recycling". Of course they like these programs even if they do not work (which is the case today) since it allows them to produce more plastic and make more profits.

Recycling is only relevant when there is not a huge incentive to produce waste in the first place.
