Now that Giphy has been acquired by FB, many have reached out to ask whether we should be concerned about Giphy search in Signal.
Signal already uses a privacy preserving approach to prevent gif search providers from receiving user data:https://signal.org/blog/signal-and-giphy-update/ …
@gamingonlinux any luck gaming on Lutris / PlayOnLinux using controller? My all attempts with XBOX Elite 2 and GameSir G4s ended up having mess with axis: XBOX would have viewing axis sticked to RT and wrong one on R analog stick (happens on all games) 🤔 Interestingly Steam native Linux client makes XBOX controller work totally correct in HITMAN, but Steam has some magic joystick subsystem 🤓 I'm using xpadneo on Linux Mint. #gaming #joystick
Should you use #Zoom for confidential conversations?
Let's have a quick look at security...
Let's call that a 'no'.
NVIDIA released the 440.82 stable 'Long Lived' Linux driver - helps DOOM Eternal on Steam Play Proton https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articles/nvidia-released-the-44082-stable-long-lived-linux-driver-helps-doom-eternal-on-steam-play-proton.16382 #Drivers #NVIDIA #Update
"Google Says It Doesn’t 'Sell' Your Data. Here’s How the Company Shares, Monetizes, and Exploits It."
#Zoom is taking it to a new level - after leaking your webcam data to anyone who knows your computer's IP for Mac & leaking your data to Facebook on iOS, Windows 10 is next with leaking your login credentials.
In short: better don't use this for anything sensitive and don't make other people install the Zoom app - ever.
For anyone interested in helping us test out this new version, we've just put out a release candidate for you to try today, and would love your feedback!
Suffered screen tearing on my Lenovo Legion with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and Linux Mint / @ubuntu Bionic - it seems fix is as easy as marking two #nvidia settings: "Force Composition Pipeline" and "Force Full Composition Pipeline".

I was surprised that NYTimes still manages to detect Chrome Incognito mode (I thought Chrome had fixed that bug), so I dug in. How do they do it? It's actually pretty clever:
- Firefox: indexedDB throws an error in private browsing
- Safari: localStorage is disabled
- Edge/IE: indexedDB is null
- Chrome: estimate the available storage quota, if it's lower than ~125MB, then it's Incognito
