⚠Attention Skeptical Facebook users! ⚠

Facebook, for all its potential, is not open source. Anyone who wants to recreate that magic would have to start from scratch. This secluded nature has made Facebook a target in many developing countries, where it is forced to either shutter or comply with authoritarian regimes.

Facebook has brought unprecedented convenience to the lives of over two billion users. However, as we learned with Cambridge Analytica, that convenience comes at a steep price.

Don't want to share so much data? Want accountability? Perhaps, an open source version of Facebook that can be your Blogger, Twitter, Whatsapp and YouTube in one place? I suggest you try Minds.

Secure messaging. Independent video hosting. A simpler, less politically biased verification process. A blogging platform for both budding and established publishers. Membership perks for about the same cost as Medium or Discord, with annual options. Being rewarded for quality content instead of posting the latest dank meme.

Click the referral link to get started. You won't have to put in as much info as you did on Facebook.…

For those who aren't yet sold out on leaving Facebook, may I suggest you read this article about Minds if you need a better explanation as to what alternatives there are:

Think Twice before blindly clicking I ACCEPT.

As of June 11th, 2018, I am running Windows 10 build 17134.112. Classic workarounds in my tutorials are unaffected and work just fine. I am on the Slow Ring.

If you're having issues updating, download the delta update from the Microsoft Update catalog.

Changelog for build 17134.112:…

The latest Mobile-class build [feature2] is 15254.45x. It's only available to the Idol 4s, Lumia 950/XL, Elite x3, and other devices with 2 GB or more of RAM (except Lumia 1520).

If you own a device with 2 GB or more of RAM, you can adjust targeting info to receive the build. Please note this will void your warranty and require developer access and special extensions and appxbundles.

Something stumping you? Reach out on Disqus. It might give me more ideas to submit to my Tutorial folder. There is always another way.

DeskThemePacks are the future of Windows customization. It cannot be denied. As Microsoft implements updates to its core and as it pursues the Andromeda project, there is an increasing likelihood that the custom visual styles won't be able to keep up. My DeskThemePacks will. They are backward compatible with Windows 8.1 and 7 (for those who use the installer mentioned in my DTP gallery page), and will benefit from all future improvements to fluent design.

And better yet, you can make them yourself. Check out my Vimeo tutorial journal. If you need resources like Desktop Architect, shoot me a message.
