#Kiwix is an app that lets you easily browse wiki and stackexchange sites offline.
It's extremely useful for people who cannot access a reliable internet connection for whatever reason. (For example, some sailors will download a copy of wikipedia onto Kiwix in port to browse it while at sea.)
Kiwix is available for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS:
You can also make a local Kiwix server on a Raspberry Pi:

Yesterday I learned something new about boosting on #Mastodon: if you boost the first message of a thread, then it isn't necessarily true that all your followers can click on it to see the entire thread.

Your followers might still not see all the threads that branched off of the original, but they will see at least the one thread.

This allows Telegram to build a huge social network map of all the users and how they know each other.
It is extremely difficult to remain anonymous while using Telegram because the social network of everyone you communicate with is known to them (and whomever has pwned their servers).'
more reasons why telegram is not a good choice for secure messaging:

Enums and native support for enum pattern matching is probably the best thing about Rust, aside from its ownership model.
