In 2020 I wrote a post about Searx and I also wrote why I didn't trust Duckduckgo. Now the time is proving I was right.

I don't trust in proprietary crap, sooner or later they will betray you.

In 2020 & 2021, the FBI queried the data of more than 3 million people in the U.S. without a warrant in "incidental" capture of conversations through Section 702. With the potential renewal of Section 702 on the horizon, it's time to close this backdoor.

I've seen this post about "Google blocking all third party email accounts starting in June" boosted quite a bit lately ( mastodon.honeypot.im/@digdeepe )

Please stop boosting it: the statement is untrue.

Google will continue supporting app passwords ( support.google.com/accounts/an ). Using them requires two-step verification ( support.google.com/accounts/an ) which you can set up with any TOTP application, no phone required.

(Citation: I use this with mutt, soon also mbsync/isync + mu4e.)

Gmail will block all third party mail clients starting from June: pmail.com/newsflash.htm

That is, unless they pay $4500 minimum for an audit :D

Stop using gmail and enabling their monopolistic practices, if you already haven't.

This is a particular dysfunction of American corporate culture that has forgotten the long-term value of R&D, and I'm not sure what incentives there are to fix it so long as "broken" is "good enough to sell" ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I've often used the legacy alternativeto.net website - with the open source license filter activated - in order to find software...But just this morning I learned of the following site: opensourcealternative.to

Clearly, I've been living under a rock, since i never knew of this site. 😃

Does anyone know of other, similar sites?

Compilers are often written in the language they are compiling. This creates a chicken-and-egg problem that leads users and distributors to rely on opaque, pre-built binaries of those compilers that they use to build newer versions of the compiler.
