Behold, a general chatroom: app.element.io/#/room/#afedive 🎉🎉

So far there have been interesting discussions about topics like , , , , , but also non-tech topics. It's at a different pace than , so they compliment each other nicely.

There's an open door policy, so anyone is welcome to join 😊

Would anyone be interested in hearing about our adventure? We''re a feminist non-profit in the midst of migrating from Windows to : servers and desktops! We try to be as as possible, for ethical, security and privacy reasons.

I really need to have another word with my office manager about the productivity levels in this place.

Can I interest anyone on the in a FREE DRONE? It's a few years old, barely used because no one knows how it works, and it's pretty crappy 😅 supposedly there's a camera in it, but again, I have no idea how it works. We did get it to fly!

If interested I'll send it via parcel service (postal fees apply).

Sitting in what used to be the busiest train during the busiest hour at Central Station, and now it's completely empty. I kinda like this side of the pandemic.

Do we have connoisseurs on the that can recommend a good coffee machine? ☕

Guess who is starting her new job today 🥳🥳

which productivity apps do you use? And how are they integrated?

Use case: starting a new job, taking a uni course, writing a masters thesis, plus personal goals to achieve. Walking around with a massive to do list in my head.

I'm trying out apps to keep track, but they're not integrated. Think mail in one app, calendar in another, Nextcloud + deck, tasks in a notes app. Since it's not integrated, I'm often doing double work or lose track. How do other people do this? 🤔

It’s cold and snowing outside. Go and put food out for the birds.

Now.

Go.

Just something positive about the #fediverse 

I made a hasty conclusion based on faulty troubleshooting yesterday (lol) and you know what I realized?

NOT ONCE did I receive insults or threats. I guarantee you, if this was , it would have been very different.

So thanks everyone, for making the a nice place. 😊

I discovered why the uBlock icon wasn't showing up in my taskbar. 🎉 The 'run in private browser' option was disabled.

Why did I not think of this? Because I didn't know that "disabling cookies and site data when Firefox is closed'' == "permanent private browsing mode" despite Firefox displaying a VERY CLEAR WARNING. 🤦‍♀️

Still doesn't explain seeing ads after installing uBlock Origin and the lack of adds directly after disabling DRM, but at least I can use YT again. Sorry for the drama yall 😙

Just restarted my whole system. I still see YT ads on Firefox. uBlock Origin is enabled, Widevine disabled, so I'm guessing it's not the latter.

SORRY FOLKS, PLEASE LOWER YOUR PITCHFORKS, IT maybe WASN'T GOOGLE THIS TIME. 😂😂
