"Smart" and networked proprietary devices should be very much called what they are: dystopian junk.

If you want a less polemic term, use "automated surveillance devices," but really all of these TVs, home assistants, toasters, fridges, smoke detectors, etc. are dystopian junk.

We need "low tech" appliances, and we need personal computing devices that are, by design, fully controllable by the people using them.

Personally, I much prefer the on/off switch. Brilliant design - simple, elegant, foolproof, reliable and resistant to tampering.




 
#xcwcp is a graphical program for learning #Morse code.

Morse code is a method of robustly and simply encoding text in the Latin alphabet (like English) into signals which can be turned into sound. Morse code is heavily used on continuous wave (CW) ham #radio channels. xcwcp is a great tool to learn how to key and listen to Morse code for fun or emergencies.

Proprietary software blocks you from using the software you own the way you want -- including altering it and sharing it. Let the world know you want free software instead -- share this image with #ISupportFreeSoftware! https://u.fsf.org/2u-




 
If you've got a slow or old laptop, you may be able to speed it up by installing the Lubuntu operating system:

https://lubuntu.me

You can follow their official account here:

@lubuntu

Lubuntu is a lighter version of Ubuntu Linux. It can run the same apps as Ubuntu, but has a simpler interface that makes it run extremely quickly even on older/slower computers.

The increased speed is especially noticeable if you use it to replace Windows 👍
