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.

So #Tusky is actually only about $60 away from a yearly estimated budget of $2000, that's pretty amazing!

Thank you everyone for supporting the work we do.

I'm not ashamed to say that I took a mental health day today. With the whole migration, I've been on the verge of a burn-out for a while now. Losing a full weekend worth of work (why am I working during the weekend anyway?!) last night took its toll.

Today I''ll mostly be doing some gardening and seriously contemplating a very cushy job offer in the corporate world.

I'm done with FOSS for a while. Jesus fuck.

Jesus christ I'm so upset. I have spend the better half of my weekend working on an important document in Libreoffice. I just opened it again, and all of the formatting is gone. It's just looks like ugly word vomit now. I've tried everything, but it seems like I will have to start over. This document needed to be finished by tomorrow, I was so happy that I was almost done. WTF @libreoffice , WHYYYY!! 😫

Guess what guys..


More updates. Email with is succesful as long as we're using a browser. On phone it's still a challenge. There's a long list of issues that I still have to solve.

So we've given our users tools, but now it's time to see if a. they manage to use those tools well and b. if they have the functionality they need. User training and feedback now, surveys in a month.

Next up: Guacamole for Windows, Zammad, Zabbix, Mautic, WikiJS, maybe Discourse, a new VOIP system, and Apache Superset.

Finally a adventure update. We've had weekly trainings with our users where we've discovered some interesting things.

turns out be to a buggy piece of shit. I'm working on an issue now where public channels aren't public. That's the main feature guys.

Our Mint desktop needs a second roll-out script based on feedback we got from users.

is fine, but apparently confusing and scary to users. Some are 'secretly' still using shadow IT like Google Drive πŸ™„πŸ™„

Yaaaaaasss, check out that gorgeous whole wheat pizza. 😍😍

So far 3,2 kg lost, 6,8 kg to go.

I'm already dreaming of the whole wheat tortilla pizza I'm going to eat when I break my two day fast. Even broccoli and chicken sounds appealing again.

πŸ€” ⌨️ People need to stop seeing governments as the problem and start seeing centralized power as the true enemy.

Doing my first 5:2 intermittent fast. Aka eating for 5 days (in a 18:6 way), fasting for 2 days. The fast starts today.

Looking forward to the pizza hallucinations. πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•

Dear American media outlets:
β€’ It is not the Women’s World Cup, it is the World Cup.
β€’ They are not the top top U.S. women soccer players, they are the top U.S. soccer players.

when discord asks for your phone number, or facebook wants you to upload a picture of your face, or twitter makes you create an account to view the "tweets and replies" tab...

that's a paywall

Day 5 of intermittent fasting (18:6). Losing about 0,5 kilo a day. Still fiercely hating the gym. 7,5 kilo's to go!

Tech support with gifs is 1000x more satisfying ❀️

I've been living solely on chocolate and pizza before and during our . With all of that done, it's now time to finally shed a few kilo's. 10 to be exact.

I'm doing intermittent fasting, eating insanely healthy, ran a 5k this morning, went to crossfit during lunch, and I'm just now walking out of the gym. Can't wait to not look like a lazy sack of shit anymore.

RIP in pieces, pizza. πŸ•πŸ’”

A few months ago, Microsoft decided to collaborate with Google and drop its web engine in favor of Google's.

Earlier this week, Google blocked all ad blockers, and now Microsoft has de-listed UBlock Origin (a powerful ad-blocker). Without real choice, monopolies will dictate what you see and do on the Internet.

Real choice comes with Free/Open Source Software.

Ok, we're at the end of our first week of working with our new / IT environment. The mail server is done, everything looks well. I still get a lot of user support requests, but more in a general 'where can I find this and this' sense.

Our users now have access to email (Zimbra), files (Nextcloud + Collabora), chat (Rocketchat) and videoconferencing (Jitsi). We'll be adding more services soon, such as a wiki and kanban board. Finally a peaceful weekend :)
