For years I have been using Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp. It’s been fine, but I am trying to step away from Big Tech companies and since all of the above are Facebook owned and managed by the mother load Facebook. It had to go. Facebook I used mostly back in college, it was convenient for messaging friends and arranging meet-ups and what not. After college I used it for a couple of more years than I had anticipated, sometimes it is hard to cleanse a habit.

How to install Neovim on Apple Silicon M1 Mac
I use brew to install command line applications on my new shiny M1 Mac.
Since neovim is not yet available for the M1's I had to fork the HEAD-branch.
Do it like this:
brew install --HEAD tree-sitterbrew install --HEAD luajitbrew install --HEAD neovim
It might brake during the install of tree-sitter, but just build rust and whatever it complains about. After this everything worked out fine.
In times like this, when the corona pandemic hits hard and lot. You might invite friends over for work or play. And when friends are over, there is always a need to share your Wi-Fi, I mean what else are you supposed to do?
But what do you do when you don't want to say your passphrase to all of your friends and neighbours. You can of course share your access point and passphrase with a QR-code. Isn't that fantastic? So how do you do that? Well, it's real easy.
First of all you need to install the application: qrencode
This is installed by issuing the following commands:
On Void Linux:
$ xbps-install -S qrencode
On Arch Linux/Manjaro/etc:
$ pacman -S qrencode
$ apt install qrencode
Then you have to use a specific format like this:
On Linux or equivalent system: qrencode -o - -t utf8 'WIFI:S:HomeNetwork;T:WPA;P:ThisismylongpassphrasethatevenIcantremember;;'
I have been translating Tusky to Swedish for a couple of months now. It is a great and fuzzy feeling when there is a great FOSS-project we all can contribute to.
The last weeks the head developer @ConnyDuck@chaos.social has tested a couple of different translation projects, like Crowdin and now lately Weblate, we both prefer the latter since it is open source and possible to host on your own infrastructure.
