    Flym is pretty good, but not so good at comics or images. For that, I use Feeder (available on F-droid), but it is pretty barebones otherwise.

    Looks nice. But I don't see any mention of source code. Is this open source, and if yes, where can I find it?

    Is there a way to make a local backup of Firefox notes? I have 1 laptop and 1 phone that I can keep in sync, but I'm not sure that's enough. I have two more(on and off-site) backups of all other important files, and I'd like my notes to be the same.

    For only file storage, there's also the option for syncthing, which has been very very good in my experience.

    I wish it were just that. Ikey is currently on a much needed time off, and his absence is unforgiving. Even when Ikey was there, I remember one particular incident where kernel was downgraded to then unsupported 4.15 for two weeks, because later version wasn't integrated properly. Such things demonstrate weak spots. They show that Solus grew too much too fast, and it can get unwieldy at times.

    Don't get me wrong, I see just how much the team works and is doing pretty good job at keeping things alive, but that's not enough in long term. Maybe they'll fix things, and I'd happily hop back on. Until then, I'll keep looking for replacement.

    Another shoutout to Solus plasma. I might move off though. It is becoming quite apparent limitations of small team, despite their excellent efforts.

    That is excellent idea. Perhaps make it similar to how arstechnica does.

    If you haven't already, please give Borderlands 1 & 2 a go. They're very fun, have a co-op mode for story, and for shooty-shoot games, they're probably the only series I ever come back to.

    Both are true. Old one was hard to pick apart, new one is too bright. Maybe don't make the number solid white? That seems to trigger me the most.

    Thanks. What I'm wondering is if this is automated, I gather my email would require some kind of fixed format, stating username and purpose. If its all manual, then @Deimos knows his email, which isn't a problem, but I don't think he would like it that way. Perhaps I should read the docs, maybe there's more info.

    So, my latest friend has already forgotten password (that's what you get for not using a password manager sniff). He says he setup a recovery account, but I'm not sure if the email to be sent should be in any particular format. Has anybody tried account recovery process? How can we do this?

    Browsing sites like tilde is far superior in a browser, because browsers allow loading multiple pages simultaneously through tabs. That way, i can keep track of what I wanted to read, and I can manage that even if I lose network which can happen a lot in my country.

    What an app offers is a superior posting experience, where I just share it, and in couple of taps, I have already posted my thing, making me more active.

    I can relate with using incognito mode abnormal amount of times, and I, too was annoyed at typing passwords again and again. Using Keepass2Android really helped with typing stuff again and again.

    As side bonus, my passwords are strongest, never the same for two sites, and synced across all my devices so I never have to type them again, ever.

    Easy sharing to app. It can make posting really easy, and might even encourage more users to post, and more often.
