Some Google-free way for an Android smartphone migration

 

Some Google-free way for an Android smartphone migration

After 4 years of service, my Nokia 8.1 was starting to have some weakening battery issues and also a very capricious USB port. The connection was random and charging it took forever. So it wasn’t anymore suitable for my daily usage (and working in a place where the mobile network is very low is not a good thing for a weak battery because the smartphone will have difficulties to reach the network…) and during previous September I’ve bought the Nokia G60.

Ever heard about the Linux distribution CBL-Mariner ?

 

Ever heard about the Linux distribution CBL-Mariner ?

A few days ago, I was on a business trip at Microsoft France HQ in Paris, to take part at some meetings organized between them and one of my clients regarding the various technologies they use from the publisher. During a session with the PM of Azure App Service/Functions, I’ve learned about something. Did you knew that Microsoft released a Linux distribution ? For my defense, I don’t work with Microsoft Azure since a long time, mostly 2 years, so I still have a lot of things to discover about this provider.

Don't get mistaken : Mastodon is not Twitter

 

Don't get mistaken : Mastodon is not Twitter

It’s been everywhere on the news, following the acquisition of Twitter by Elon Musk, a #TwitterMigration movement spread in various Mastodon instances. A lot of new users registered on various instances during the last week (Fosstodon had + 5 000 new users in a week) and Mastodon’s developers told about over 655 thousands active users as a new record. Some news articles also stated if Mastodon could “replace Twitter” or being “the new Twitter”.

Why do I enjoy Fosstodon

 

Why do I enjoy Fosstodon

I’ve joined Fosstodon since a little more than 2 years now. At this moment, I wasn’t into social medias and had none of them. I’ve discovered the power of the Fediverse with my former blog tool : Plume. Seeing some comments coming from Mastodon instances was fun an nice. Then, I’ve wanted to check myself what was going on there and eventually I’ve opened my account at Fosstodon. I’ve always liked Forums and I’ve been a lot on IRC too during my beginning of using Internet.

Something about our languages

 

Something about our languages

Recently in France, the Administrative Tribunal took a decision against the Health Ministry (Ministère des solidarités et de la santé - Link in French) and the French State because of a project named : “Health Data Hub” (sic). Launched in 2019, the Health Data Hub project is a platform administered by the public health ministry for medical research and treatment quality enhancement. But, for some conservative associations, this project had a big problem : its name is in English.

My vinyl records collection

 

My vinyl records collection

If somebody told me in early 2022 I would buy a vinyl turntable and starting a vinyl records collection, I don’t think I would have believed it. Like I’ve said in the linked blog entry, I’m not audiophile and not a “vinyl nostalgic”. Because I remember this medium while I was a kid and the sound of the family turntable was awful, the needle jumped a lot, and the “cracks” were not really enjoyable.

The relations between the Xenoblade Games

 

The relations between the Xenoblade Games

Until now, the Xenoblade series produced four main games and two expansions. As their relationship could quickly become a mess, I’ve made the following tree that explain with a very summarized chronology the relationships between the game. As there is not a lot of official material explaining this at my knowledge, this chart remains a personal interpretation. Of course, as Xenoblade Chronicles X is a standalone episode and universe, it does not appear in this chart.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3

 

Xenoblade Chronicles 3

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is a video game developed by Monolith Software and published by Nintendo, released on July 2022 on Nintendo Switch. It’s the fourth installment of the Xenoblade series. The game setting explore the future of the first and second entries of the series, while the gameplay is mostly based on Xenoblade 2 ’s. The Xenoblade games have usually long term development and took time to be released, but this one had a pleasant surprise of being released earlier than the expected schedule.

The CNIL GDPR learning workshop

 

The CNIL GDPR learning workshop

If you’ve read some of this blog legal-related content, you may have seen that I’m pretty interested by the privacy protection. However, despite being myself informed of the legal context, I recognize I’ve never deeply learned the GDPR itself. Of course, my various readings about this topic (including my professional activities) made me learn some good basis, but that wasn’t enough. That’s why I’ll propose you to discover a service made by the French personal data protection authority, la CNIL, which is a training to the GDPR principles, legal basis and its impact in our lives.
