My name's Hiram. I was born in Chihuahua, and raised in Chicago.

Both are home, and both start with "Chi."

@hiramfromthechi@lemmy.world avatar

Not to my knowledge.

Also: My understanding is that La Gran Chichimeca was further south from Chihuahua, around the Zacatecas, Aguascalientes, and Guanajuato region. Basically between Chihuahua and Mexico City.

You might know better than I would though, if that's something you study/studied.

I got Tarahumara blood in me, but you wouldn't know it from the current state of my cardio lol

While it is my joy to study the regions the only reason I would know more is that I ask questions to eliminate my assumptions.

Always a good approach. Commend you for that.

It is a pleasure to meet a Rarámuri though! From my books I’ve been told that your ancestral lands were part of a vast trade network. This is best evidenced in macaw burials and feather art found in Arizona of all places.

Is that so? It would make sense, given its geography.

As far as my bloodline, if you have seen one fat celt you’ve seen them all.

You funny for that 🤣🤣

Privacy is a fundamental human right. Plain and simple.

Online, offline, doesn't matter. No one should ever have to pay for it. Especially not to a surveillance company.

Not at the moment. You'll have to use ClearURLs or uBlock Origin filter lists if you don't wanna have to right click.

uBlock Origin filter lists is what seems to work best. You get nothing but the raw URL.

For those of us who can't code their own extensions: LibRedirect does this for other sites as well, not just YouTube.

It also literally says to not input sensitive data...

This is one of the first things I flagged regarding LLMs, and later on they added the warning. But if people don't care and are still gonna feed the machine everything regardless, then that's a human problem.

The thing is... The bubble colors do matter. But people aren't caring about the colors for the right reasons.

The color matters because the color has to do with the security of that message.

Sending a message through the iMessage protocol is more secure than SMS/MMS.

People should care that their messages are secure and private (and they do care, they just don't always realize it or know it yet). Unfortunately, the people behind the whole blue vs. green bubble culture war don't seem to focus on this security aspect, which is actually what/why it matters.

As an Apple investor who would benefit from more iPhone sales, "Buy an iPhone" is not the right response/solution to this problem, despite what Tim Apple says.

Choose open source. Say no to walled gardens.

Use—and donate to—Signal.

Nope. I suppose in theory it could, but not necessarily—it'd be up to Apple/Google to make the color decisions regarding that.

The important thing here is that it's not about the colors themselves, but about what the colors signify.

Apple chose blue to denote that the message you're sending is to another Apple device. By default, this Apple-to-Apple message uses the iMessage protocol. If it uses iMessage, then that implies a certain security standard.

Apple also made the deliberate choice to denote non-iMessage texts with green. If it's green, then it's SMS/MMS, you lose iMessage encryption, and other features like reactions.

The colors are not gonna change by default—it's up to them to coordinate what colors are used for what. Apple's not gonna open up iMessage (at least not voluntarily, and we saw how far they'll go with Beeper), so Google can't do anything about that. Which is also why they're pushing so hard to get Apple to adopt RCS.

If Apple does adopt RCS, maybe they'll denote it with purple bubbles, who knows. Then you'd have iMessage as blue, RCS as purple, and SMS/MMS as green.

But again, this is all about what each color signifies in terms of privacy and security.

Alright boys, I've been converted to the light side and have installed F-Droid. Now what?

Basically title. I waited on installing F droid for a long time because my phone threw many scary warnings when I tried a long time ago. But now I have it, and I got some fossify apps, but since there is no "Editor's Picks" on F- droid I dont really know where to go from here....

I use Obtanium too, but I can't figure out how to install apps that are hosted on GitLab.

What do you have to change in Obtanium?

Here's Mull, for example: https://gitlab.com/divested-mobile/mull-fenix

hiramfromthechi ,
@hiramfromthechi@lemmy.world avatar

Any benefit over just downloading the APK directly without managing it through Obtanium? I ask cause I'm guessing that for Mull, since there are no releases on its GitLab repo, it'll just have to be downloaded directly.

Do you know of any online solutions for creating forms (open-source if possible) that have an API for generating unique links to the same form? @opensource

hiramfromthechi , (edited )
@hiramfromthechi@lemmy.world avatar

I may not be fully understanding your use case, but Baserow has forms and is API-first. It sounds like it would do it, if I'm understanding correctly.

It's open source and has both hosted and self-hosted versions.

To solve this, I'd ask: What can we do to incentivize graceful degradation instead of planned obsolescence?

    How did you pull Mull into Obtanium? When I paste the GitLab URL into Obtanium, it says that there's no APK found.

    Should be required reading IMO for anyone ever on Github :P

    Bouncy. I read "Dom Dolla" and immediately thought Dame Dolla (Damian Lillard) so I was like "Oh this gonna have a Dame verse?!"

    I don't do it often, but I get real into it when there's wordplay and figurative language that makes me think.

    Plus I couldn't find the lyrics to it, so in this case I did it to make sure I wasn't missing the bar intricacies.

    Looking for Notes App for Android & Linux

    I am trying to slowly de-Google-ify myself by moving to open source apps, I wanna ditch google notes and evernote. I tried obsidian, standard notes, and joplin, I liked using obsidian on PC and standard notes looks nice on android but obsidian you need to pay to have sync and standard notes doesn't do markdown unless you pay...

    hiramfromthechi ,
    @hiramfromthechi@lemmy.world avatar

    It'd be helpful to learn more about your requirements. Does it need to be open source? Any must-have features? Native apps? Etc.

    hiramfromthechi ,
    @hiramfromthechi@lemmy.world avatar

    A great reminder that your voice does matter. Apply it other things as well, and things can actually improve...

    @hiramfromthechi@lemmy.world avatar

    Lotta good recommendations here. If you get GrapheneOS, you could get any keyboard (including GBoard) and turn off its network access at the app level (as well as sensors and other permissions), which would make virtually any keyboard privacy-friendly.

    hiramfromthechi OP ,
    @hiramfromthechi@lemmy.world avatar

    Do you need to enable the setting anywhere? I'm not seeing it.

    hiramfromthechi OP ,

    hiramfromthechi OP ,
    @hiramfromthechi@lemmy.world avatar

    Did you confirm this? I tried a handful of different links, and it retained certain necessary parameters. Might depend on the link and how Firefox reads the link. Guessing it’s using regex.

    hiramfromthechi OP ,
    @hiramfromthechi@lemmy.world avatar

    What type of link was it?

    hiramfromthechi OP ,
    @hiramfromthechi@lemmy.world avatar

    Not on Android yet. In the meantime, I would just use the Clear URLs extension.

    hiramfromthechi OP ,
    @hiramfromthechi@lemmy.world avatar

    A few years ago, I came across a tool that did exactly this. It might’ve been a browser extension… When you clicked a link that had trackers, rather than providing a clean URL, it sent incorrect/invalid parameters to the tracking link.

    hiramfromthechi OP ,
    @hiramfromthechi@lemmy.world avatar

    Not familiar with ScriptSafe—wonder if anyone here can confirm it’s necessary if you’re already using uBlock Origin. I would err on the side of “no,” but you never know.

    hiramfromthechi OP ,
    @hiramfromthechi@lemmy.world avatar

    Indeed, not all UTM tracking parameters are harmful. For example, you could have parameters like ?src=email&campaign=summer2023 that would denote how users engaged with the URL, without necessarily identifying them.

    Many platforms, however, will try to identify you and collect as much as possible.
