Hey I found an open source menstrual cycle tracking app called Drip that doesn't call home to anyone and encrypts your data on your device. It's gender inclusive and it has a prebuilt version Android that you can get either on F-Droid or on their site here: bloodyhealth.gitlab.io

They have an iOS version but it's not pre compiled. I'll be working on that today so you can get loaded onto your Apple devices, along with the instructions to install it on said Apple device.

Please boost so others can see this!

Imagine if YouTube was shut down.

It would be a literal tragedy for the human race. Billions of hours worth of creativity would disappear in an instant.

"That would never happen!" some believe.

But it already has.

Remember Google+? All of it's gone forever.

Or remember all that media stored on MySpace? It's vanished.

We must stop depending on Big Tech to archive our data. Their mandate is to profit off our data, not preserve it.

The best part is that, apparently, one side effect of all the notifications going out was that unsubscribing didn't work.

So all ~400k people got… *looks into inbox*

156 emails.

Making for over 60 million emails sent.

Glorious, *glorious* pandemonium. 👍

This is a far larger problem than most people realize (not specifically the GM situation). Password reuse is so pervasive that these password stuffing attacks are usually wildly successful unless the online service mandates 2FA, which many services are hesitant to do because of the negative user experience. theregister.com/2022/05/25/gm-

Use a password manager. Use unique passwords for each site/service, turn on 2FA/two step auth when available.

Dear open source users,

If the author of your favorite open source app has announced they stopped developing and supporting the app (because they're frustrated and possibly burned out), please don't suggest they do more free work so that you can continue using the app.
Instead, consider thanking them for their past work and let them know that you enjoyed their app.

Regards,
another open source developer

I just noticed "foreach" on npm is controlled by a single maintainer.

I also noticed they let their personal email domain expire, so I bought it before someone else did.

I now control "foreach" on NPM, and the 36826 projects that depend on it.

Hatte bis eben keine Ahnung von der Existenz von Weiße-Schoko-Blaubeer-Himbeer-Crumble-Eclairs. Aber nun bin ich fest entschlossen, dieses Phänomen genauer zu untersuchen. 🤓#cakefacts
