Instagram alternative #PixelFed's flagship instance pixelfed.social is now permanently closed to new registrations in order to prevent centralisation.

You can still sign up to PixelFed, just pick another instance.

Here are some we'd recommend:

pix.diaspodon.fr
pxlfd.me/
pixelfed.de/

You can find more at:
fediverse.network/pixelfed

PixelFed instances federate with the Fediverse, so you can follow PF accounts from Mastodon etc.

Just finished a playthrough of Alt Frequencies by @AccidentalQ@twitter.com. It's an awesome experience, even if you're not normally into games as it's all about the story. Also, it has some really well done Screen Reader support, thanks for taking the time to implement it.

OK friends of free and open/libre Android apps: My repo now also shows screenshots in the web browser, if there are any (and you use the web frontend). Should affect about any 2nd app. Enjoy!

As it's the 10th anniversary of Minecraft, a reminder that there's a free open alternative called Minetest:

minetest.net/

You can follow it on the Fediverse at:

@Minetest

It has many game modes including online multiplayer servers.

Did you know there's an app to help you check the accessiblity of your Android apps? It's called Accessiblity Scanner and it's quite helpful

Attention #Fennec #FDroid / #Firefox users: The critical 66.0.4 update is now available via F-Droid to fix the broken add-on support because of an expired certificate. That was incredibly fast for F-Droid standards! Don't forget to revert any unofficial fixes. f-droid.org/app/org.mozilla.fe

Meanwhile #Ubuntu users are still waiting for the latest Firefox update to be deployed. 🙄 #ArmagAddon #Android #Mozilla

I finally have a solution for opening (libre/MS) office documents on my Phone using only free software!

With Nextcloud, Collabora Online and the Nextcloud Android app.

nextcloud.com/collaboraonline/
f-droid.org/en/packages/com.ne

Editing should work too but is a bit buggy on my Phone still.

Some of the most fun I've had with web development in the past year has actually been learning about #accessibility. Sometimes it feels like I'm building a whole parallel interface to the visual one, and other times it just helps make sense of HTML conventions that I had always taken for granted. Also it's fun to play around with screen readers and see how they tick.

In other news, Pinafore will have an accessible autocomplete soon. Mad props to @marcozehe for showing me how to do this; it's definitely one of the more challenging accessible widgets I've built. github.com/nolanlawson/pinafor

@fribbledom Why couldn't they at least move to something like Matrix.

Mozilla is shutting down their IRC servers and moving to Discord, a proprietary chat service.

Hey Mozilla, aren't we forgetting something here? Our very own "Mozilla Pledge for a Healthy Internet” states:

> Principle 2 The internet is a global public resource that must remain open and accessible.

> Principle 6 The effectiveness of the internet as a public resource depends upon interoperability (protocols, data formats, content), innovation and decentralized participation worldwide.

Thanks. @fdroidorg inclusion requests have exposed a number of "open source" Android apps as having non-free dependencies and spyware bundled with them. It seems like the #JitsiMeet app is in that category. It would be great to see app developers acknowledging those issues and working on them, instead of seeing it as the community's job ;)

In this post I try to explain the Double Ratchet Algorithm that drives the cryptography behind OMEMO and Signal. This is the second part of my series about the crypto behind OMEMO. blog.jabberhead.tk/2019/04/15/
