A new Pinafore client discussions Forum is now online at Qoto's Discourse Forums

We now have a new sub-forum, dedicated to the powerful and fast Pinafore client for Fediverse.

I am a big fan of Pinafore, since first trying it. It is a popular client with power users, as it is FAST and Light, plus has elegant design, clean UI and many nice features.

Nolan Lawson is the author of Pinafore, and I have told him many times how I enjoy it.

As part of Fandom, I thought we could do more to support Great Software, and requested a new Project Forum for Pinafore at Qoto's Discourse Forum. The Qoto.org admin graciously agreed and created it, it's now opening for business.

An Introductory post was needed, so here we are. 🙂

Never heard about Pinafore? See the author's word here

asking for FOSS help, boost pls 

I have a friend who is getting uncomfortable with the encroachment of surveillance capitalism who hasn't given much thought to things like libre/free software and privacy.

what are some good resources that are easy to understand but are correct? at the moment I just have the Privacy Tools website and personal advice (which doesn't go as far as I'd like)

#askthefediverse #foss #help

small note: as for any question about threat model, I'm not looking for "hiding in a cave inside the moon" level, but something that moves away from Discord and (maybe) Windows. preferably it should be short-ish or be a series if it's long, but one huge chunk is also fine.

Such is the white Latino experience:

At first you're white, no big deal

Then you interact with Americans and you're no longer white???

Then you go back to Brazilians (ymmv here) telling them you're actually not white, like a clown

With luck, you finally realize that what a few dumbos in the US or Europe think about your race does not erase the lifetime of benefits you enjoyed from being white where you actually live
