Arch Linux is not inherently more secure than other distros. Try Fedora, Debian, or even gasp Ubuntu.

I am both the tech conserverative and the FSF member. I use Ubuntu for my phone and desktop, Emacs with EXWM, Icecat, and Tails.

In most cases, you don’t have anything to fear, since the encryption on Android phones is pretty good these days. However if you really feel like it could compromise you in any way, I can’t imagine a hammer wouldn’t do the trick.

Don’t forget Freetube!!

Black cat. It looks like something out of a metal band, and most Anarchists will recognize it.


Living a good life with my Alcatel Smartflip right now.

I still see some people on midwest.social.

Depends on how you define being an asshole. He has some wonky beliefs, but I’ve never heard of him actually being rude to anyone.

As soon as the one year on my domain is finished, I’m leaving GoDaddy.

I am convinced you’re a Tankie trying to give Anarchists a bad name.

Because on a laptop, where you are going to use the keyboard, it’s just easier to use a mouse. Raising your arms to touch the screen is less ergonomic than just reaching for a mouse or trackpad.

No. I use EXWM, and while it’s technically possible, it’s not very practical. You need to set transparency in the Emacs frame and then use a wallpaper setter. I much prefer the solid color of a regular Emacs buffer.

Edit: Tried it out. It’s not too bad.

Yes, if they are going without food or other essentials.

I usually just go with “could’ve”, which is how I say it IRL anyway.

  1. Money

  2. Landloards

  3. Private property

  4. After a couple months, all government.

Wallpapers on workspace thumbnails in GNOME 42?
When using GNOME, I really like using workspace thumbnails. But, I would like to add the desktop wallpaper instead of the gray background. I couldn't find anything in the settings, just perfection, or on any forums. How do you enable it?

Have you ever donated to open sourced software? If so, who did you donate too and why?
I personally donate to Solus, but I would like to see just how many people give their money to FOSS projects.

How can I force a terminal application to run in my preferred terminal emulator?
I run i3 and sometimes Openbox. I use the xfce4 terminal. However, when I use rofi to open up a terminal application like ranger, it always opens in Xterm, even though I don't have Xterm installed. I run OpenSUSE Leap btw.
