Our financial situation updated https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ - thank you to everyone who still donates to TROM. We plan to start working again on the TROM II documentary soon, granted that we do not lose more financial support. Any donation is quite important so please support us if you can. #tromlive

We have removed link.trom.tf because it was used for phishing. We almost got our server entirely removed because of that. The service was a link shortener. And these services ca be asily abused. We knew that, and we were ready to nuke it in case that happened. #tromlive

DM me the word "bread" reshared this.


TROM.tf updates:

- We've added https://tasks.trom.tf/ - a complete Trello trade-free alternative.
- We've added https://sketch.trom.tf/- a simple and useful online sketch whiteboard. Draw together with others and share your drawings.
- We've added another one https://scratch.trom.tf/ geared towards learning programming and creating animations.
- We moved yt.trom.tf to the original ytb.trom.tf. Do not worry, they are linked so it does not matter which one you use.

As you can see we are adding new trade-free services. Thanks to the people who donate to TROM. Now we have 27 trade-free services that are well maintained. So if you can, please donate to TROM here https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ to keep these services alive and relevant, and add more in the future.

We will make some "info" pages for some of these newly added services, soon. Enjoy! #tromlive

Thank you very much Luka for the 50 Euros donation! These donations help us a lot to keep over 30 projects relevant and trade-free. https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ #tromlive

Our TROMjaro LInux Distro comes with a customized Firefox. We removed all Firefox annoyances and trackers, plus added addons to block all ads and trackers on any website, also the sponsors from youtube videos; we added LibreDirect so that it automatically redirects youtube, twitter, instagram and the like, to trade-free front ends. We added an addon to unlock scientific papers, and one to allow you to download any video/audio file from any website.

All in all, we setup TROMjaro's browser to protect you from the pesky world of the Internet and the insidious trades humans are exposed to.

A reminder that we have built a massive infographic showcasing how 175 companies in the world, own everything https://www.tromsite.com/tbf/

Ok out TROMsite.com server was moved to a different location. Now all should work fine. #tromlive

DM me the word "bread" reshared this.


If some trom.tf services look a little broken (design wise) it is because our main TROMsite.com server is down for the past hours. Very likely an issue with the hosting provider. It depends on them whenever this server will be up and running. Probably a network issue in their data center. #tromlive

notes.trom.tf was removed from TROM.tf as we announced many months ago. So you know. #tromlive

Our call.trom.tf may not work properly these days - we are trying to find a proper fix for it. #tromlive

Our Peertube got updated. There are some cool new features:

1. Automated subtitles based on machine learning. Select the language of your video and an automated subtitle will be created. We do not know how good this feature is, but it is worth a shot.
2. Ability to edit any subtitle.
3. You can cut any of your videos now, using the Studio. There you can also add an intro, outro, and watermark. Basic video editing in the browser!
4. Ability to auto save the permanent livestreams - don't lose those again!
5. Live streams now get converted into multiple formats.
6. Share on the Fediverse:



Please join us! If you are making interesting videos about science/technology/activism in English, you have unlimited storage space with us. We already have over 1.000 registered users, but not many are uploading. #tromlive

Soon we will add a Theme Switch to TROMjaro :)

You will be able to click any color combination from the list and change your theme based on the color accent and dark/light mode. And unlike Pop OS, Deepin, Ubuntu, Gnome and the like, our Theme Switch changes the theme for some 90% of all apps out there, compared to some 10-20% for these other distros.

Stay tuned! #
does this also deal with gtk4 / libawaita bizarro-land on tromjaro?
Unfortunately no....we do not know how to fix that in an automated way...and I do not think anyone knows. But as soon as we do we can adapt the code. Libadwaita really messed things up
oh sounds promising! I will test it now!
Wow this fixes libadwaita theme issue! So awesome. Packaging it for TROMjaro :). All we need for now is a fix for the pesky flatpaks... Thank you so much for the heads-up!
I think what they basically do is patch libadwaita to bypass itself. So it satisfies the library dependency for the executable, but disables what the library would have done... I suspect KDE will adopt a similar strategy at some point. Maybe LD_PRELOAD can be used in a way to do this with flatpaks.

The problem I see is it may not be a very long-term sustainable solution, especially on a rolling distro. I suggest learning who the maintainer is and what their long-term plans are.
this may have some ideas too...

Thank you Guillaume for the 250 Euros donation! This is fantastic! It may add up a bit to speeding up the TROM II documentary work comeback. If we had enough money we would resume the work on the documentary. And we wok on achieving that. Thank you to everyone who still donates via Patreon or Liberapay. You can do so here https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ #

We have increased the file size limit for https://send.trom.tf/ from 3GB to 5GB. Compare with the very popular WeTransfer and we offer 3 times more storage. Plus we can store all files up to a week. On top of this all files are encrypted, and you can send an email with the files from our server directly, to anyone. You can combine multiple files into one archive and even password protect them.

Oh, and of course, our TROM Send is trade-free. We do not want anything in return: not your currency, not your data, not your attention. WeTransfer wants all of those in return for a lesser service.

Make sure you bookmark https://send.trom.tf/ #

We have expanded the storage space for our trom.tf server by 400 more GB of SSD. This means that we now have some 800+ free GB of the server. That's great. Should be fine for this year at least. Thank you to everyone who still donates to TROM. #

People are saying that Time is Money in this world. The better and more realistic and important saying is that: Money is Time, and time is non-renewable. No sane society would look at time in this shallow manner as humans do on this planet.

Our monthly budged updated. We now have around 2.100 Euros in total. This is meant to keep all of the TROM projects alive and relevant. Some 30 websites or so. See https://www.tromsite.com/tools/ . It is of course not enough. TROM II documentary has stalled now, because of lack of funding. We, the ones behind TROM, are trying to work (trade) to make some money to support this project and continue the TROM II documentary. Unfortunately it is extremely difficult.

We still get some monthly donations or one time donations from time to time, which is fantastic! So if you think TROM creates something important, please consider a donation https://www.tromsite.com/donate/

We have many free books, videos, and so many tools: from social networks to operating systems and so on. #

This year we will add more services to our trade-free hub https://trom.tf/ . Please help support this project by donating to it. We are on LIberapay https://liberapay.com/TROM/ . We provide trade-free instances for: peertube, nextcloud, friendica, matrix/element, searx, and so much more. Check it out! #

A gun, a nuclear bomb, a spear, are not dangerous unless humans decide to use them against each other. Never forget that.

Look at why humans use them as weapons, not at the weapons themselves. #


Thank you so much Florin for the 100 Euros donation! Such a great help. Any money that flows to our TROM project, is used for our project one way or another. You support over 30 websites. https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ Much appreciated for your support Florin! #

Our TROM.tf server's diskspace is getting kinda full. We have a ton of services so this is to be expected. We are trying to be more restrictive with our Peertube instance so that we may be able to remove more content that does not fit the thematic. When we reach 80% diskspace full we will need to do something about it.

#

We can migrate our Peertube storage to an object storage. Maybe we will do a campaign to raise the funds for that. May be as low as 250 Euros for a year of 2TB storage. That is twice as much as we have for Peertube right now. And we can free up some space on the server for Nextcloud and other services. Right now Peertube takes up about 70% of the storage on the server.

At least for the principle of it, politicians should all be paid the minimum wage of their respective tribe. #
That would be really cool, I'd vote for that, haha

Never forget this: you can be the most skilled human in the world, the smartest, the kindest. But if you do not trade your skills and qualities, from this trade-based society's perspective, you are as good as dead. The best surgeon, the best painter, the best electrician, doctor, programmer, scientist...will die in this society if he/she does not trade their skills for needs/wants.

Never ever forget that.

We need no statistics to realize how fucked up our trade-based society is.

Our official website is https://www.tromsite.com/ and these are our other projects https://www.tromsite.com/tools/.

Our official Social Network Page is only this https://social.trom.tf/profile/trom/ and our official Video Platform Account is here https://videos.trom.tf/video-channels/trom/videos

And on Matrix you can find us at https://matrix.to/#/!IfXnJlgQOzoJTYJxQJ:matrix.trom.tf?via=matrix.trom.tf&via=matrix.org

All of these are on https://www.tromsite.com. We have no other websites/projects or social accounts. Not for our Trade-Free project, not for our videos, not for anything else. So do not confuse other projects or social accounts with TROM's ones. They are not.

Others are making accounts pretending to be ours, and they do not even mention that they are not official accounts. So don't be fooled. #

There is also the official cloud folder with all the TROM files (videos, photos, books, and so forth): https://www.drive.tromsite.com/s/FLJece78Wd9kq7i


Our Friendica https://social.trom.tf got updated to the (almost) latest version. We are just 1 month behind the stable releases. Hopefully all works well if not let us know. #


Guillaume has donated another 450 Euros. This is incredible! It helps our situation a lot. Can't thank you enough my friend! https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ #tromlive

Work!



You're born with wings,
You learn to talk,
You have no time to fly or walk,
This world is empty,
You're just a stock.
Shut'up and listen.
Now go to work!

Your time is running,
You're getting old,
Your wings are gone,
You barely walk.
There was no loss,
You're just a stock,
A trading value, in someone's flock.

The TROM II documentary was paused because of lack of funds. It is a sad decision but we have no choice. Thank you to all of those who are still helping us via Patreon or Liberapay! Without you we could not have kept the work going - https://www.tromsite.com/donate/

We will work again on the documentary once we have enough financial stability to do so. This trade-based society kicks everyone in the balls on a constant basis. TROM was able to withstand it since 2011. Active, updated, relevant, engaged. These are difficult time but we are not giving up! We need to tell the world that trade is the origin of most problems and to motivate them to do trade-free goods/services. We are starting a movement that has no leader, and is attached to no project. But it needs time and we are the pioneers of it, so for us it will be the harshest.

The people who have helped, help and will help TROM, the ones donating, even those spreading the word, are all part of this new movement whether they understand it or not. #tromlive

This is a new study showing that dog breeds do not predict behavior https://link.trom.tf/E5PRCbRT

Meaning that the environment is what makes a dog aggressive, friendly, or whatever else. As it is to be expected. Humans spend way too much time and energy trying to find some bio-chemical reason for behavior in all kinds of creatures, including humans, yet so far nothing. Of course. Look at the environment! It is the best predictor by far for all species.
