Another blog post going around about SSH and trust-on-first-use, with no mention whatsoever about the certificate authority system in SSH. It's only been there for like a decade. It's also not something you have to pay for, and isn't hard to set up.
With SSH CA your users don't need to worry if you have to rotate your SSH host key. The fact that, say, GitHub doesn't use it is just stupid.
(I'm available if your company needs help with this.)
Unity Silently Deletes GitHub Repo That Tracks Terms of Service Changes
I decided I will host my "projects" via my Gemini Capsule on sdf.org, they are small & only utils I created over the decades. I may eventually look into gitlab, honestly I am not a huge fan of git. I am more of an SCCS or RCS person.
Too bad GitHub is forcing 2FA on us in a way I cannot use. I sponsor 2 projects, next I need to figure out if there are other methods of doing this. I know for 1 there is another method, the other I am not sure yet.
What are people doing for 2FA on github for 2FA ? I have until Oct 12 to decide what to do.
The only options I have are to use a Cell Phone, 1password, TOTP or Microsoft Auth. None of which I can use.
I will probably delete my github ID unless some easy workaround become available, like email.
Get Android App Updates Directly From the Source.
Obtainium allows you to install and update Open-Source Apps directly from their releases pages, and receive notifications when new releases are made available.
Several years in the making, GitLab is now very actively implementing #ActivityPub! 🙌
The end-goal is to support AP for merge requests (aka pull requests), meaning git.alice.dev can send a merge request to gitlab.com/Bob/project.git
First bite-sized todo on the implementation path there is ‘subscribe to project releases’.
Smart move by #GitLab; through ActivityPub they’re getting a distributed version of GitHub’s social layer.
Pues hay un tipo que creó un script y lo publicó en #GitHub en el que se hace todo automático para instalar lo necesario para que funcione.
Se queda pegado en Cheese pero en videoconferencias va bien.
Vas al terminal y pones "sudo sh install-facetime-hd-webcam.sh" y ya estás del otro lado.
>Importante poner sudo, como algunos ya sabrán.
I've executed my plan to repurpose my secondary drive as a dedicated backup drive using #Vorta. Back when I was using #Windows, I backed up my drives diligently knowing full well that any Windows update or shitty third party software (I'm looking at you #ASUS, #Razer, and the like) could bork my perfectly curated/configured system at any time. So when I moved to #Linux full time, the first thing I looked for were good/equivalent #FOSS backup solutions.
The solution I looked for needed to be efficient and quick, and need to support remote backups (i.e. #NAS) as I don't want to be expected to have an external/secondary drive hooked to my PC 24/7. It should also be a graphical solution, as I intend to use/endorse it to other users that may not be familiar/comfortable with using the terminal. I've tried too many of them including #DejaDup and #BackInTime but each of them had downsides/deal-breakers to them - which then led me to using Vorta.
What's great about Vorta?
✅ It uses #Borg and is really quick
✅ It's efficient and performs differential backups (avoids redundancy, and saves a lot of space)
✅ It supports a variety of compression algorithms
✅ It supports remote backups to a hosted or self-hosted Borg repository (officially) and to a locally mounted remote NAS (unofficially) - works really well in both cases
✅ It supports all the essentials like automatic periodic backups, configurable backup sources, configurable backup exclusions, etc.
✅ It supports periodic backup validation (check for data corruption)
✅ Easy access to easy-to-consume logs
✅ It works a bit like #macOS's #TimeMachine backups where you could mount your backed up data from a specific point in time so you could retrieve files from said time
✅ It supports pruning your archives i.e. from your collection of periodic backups: keep only 2 hourly backups, 7 daily, 4 weekly, 6 monthly, and 2 annually on top of keeping all of them that was archived in the last 10 hours (This is freaking huge and ensures you have just the right/configurable amount of backups to fall back to)
✅ It has a simple and clean UI that doesn't look intimidating or outdated
✅ It has GREAT defaults (as plug and play as it gets)
✅ It's #opensource and supports both Linux and macOS
✅ You're almost guaranteed a great support experience from the devs/community over on their #GitHub repo
#Forgejo is *the* #FOSS alternative for #Github and provides an easy migration path that allow you to #GiveUpGithub. Its aim is to liberate #FreeSoftware and the project uses 100% free software tools for its own development.

Don't be stuck when Microsoft decides to change the rules on you.

When States and nationalities influence who may or may not contribute to an open source community, is it still "open source"? Reminds me #GitHub (Microsoft) banning devs from Iran, for being... Iranians.
Please don’t upload my code on #GitHub
This is a call to open source #developers to not upload the work of others on GitHub.
What’s the problem with GitHub?
Well, there are a lot of problems with GitHub. Here, we will mainly focus on a feature called Copilot, but if you’re interested to learn more about the others, please visit this page.
If you are still developing Free Code on GH, it's long past time to consider an exodus. There are plenty of community-hosted replacements:
I'm back from the dead with a new Arcticons release! Thanks to everyone who worked on this.
Out now on GitHub:
Soon available on F-Droid, Google Play & Accrescent

It uses `fzf` to select an entry in `.bash_history` and copy the command to clipboard, allowing the user to paste it into the terminal, or anywhere.
Why? I know that there are similar alternatives, but I like to create small programs with as few footprints as possible.
