Free Software, Thoughts

I snapped…!

You know, sometimes you feel like your conviction and your actual lifestyle is on odds. I personally didn’t feel this way overall, since I don’t use fossils energy – except for the bus if needed – when I move (so I don’t actively contribute to global warming); my meals are 100% plant-covered (no, I don’t eat salad only, fuc… *ahem*) according to my love for pets and (pacific) wild animals, and I tend to use the most Free software I can to support the Free Software community.
… Do I, actually?

To be honest, a lot of evil services were in my toolbox until this moment today. I still used the Google Suite because “I dun find da best alternative raite naw” (yeah, you know Nextcloud and Onlyoffice for a while, dickhead, and let it into the darkest place of your HDD for month*), with Gmail, I forgot to look for my current phone’s root and Lineage OS support, and used most of my – useful – basic Huawei (sorry guys, I use your phones so I won’t hide your name) apps. Ok, I use Signal as a SMS client as well as an actual chat and I always install F-Droid to have a free software-friendly appstore, but I still used Gmail, Huawei Email client for Scarlet Slander’s email, Huawei calculator and I even ditched a free Photo Gallery for the basic one (ok, it was some piece of s***, but still – I found another one today, don’t worry).

So, I snapped. I removed all the vanilla Huawei crap out of my phone and browsed F-Droid for any open source alternative – even if I paid some of these apps, I opened a private mail with the very domain this mighty (and empty) blog is using to replace my private Gmail, and I FINALLY MOVED MY DROPBOX STUFF INTO THE COZY I WAS PLANNING TO USE INTO A DAILY BASIS WHEN THE DESKTOP SUPPORT WOULD BE POSSIBLE!!! (Ok, I calm down, but it is available for a year now… I’m such a mess!). Also, I deactivated my Facebook account I never liked (I opened it when my ex-gf hinted that I could meet people using it as I was already fed up of it) and was using it as your regular RSS reader Thunderbird is able to replace for years. I even gave a shot to – through Riot – although I was supporting Discord (a proprietary program, I feel ashamed) for some time now; it is useful for Scarlet Slander’s management only since I left all other servers I was into – wasn’t very active so idgaf, and I would love to move it to! (my bandmates will hate me for this lmao).
[Edit : actually, is not as useful as Discord tbh, and the latter uses an open networking system so I guess it’s kinda OK until I find something better!]

Nothing else to add, so stay tuned folks, and don’t forget to follow Scarlet Slander as well!

Here we are…!

I have this website for month and used to think he was pretty empty. I didn’t have any clue about what to do to properly fill it, so one day I told myself : “Hey, why don’t I make a blog with it?”. So, here we are!

I’ll try to update it quite often, and it will convey both my creation (video games, music, etc.) and my passions (cooking, martial arts, computers, comics / mangas, video games again). Let’s get started!
