Someone said "is that still a thing?" when I announced I was on Mastodon. Is it?
Boost this so we actually get a few votes maybe? How far can it go?

Do many of you use ?
I'm looking for a simpler solution to nextcloud .
I've run nextcloud for 4 years but I feel that it does so much that I don't need, that a simpler solution is needed , to just store photos,music and movies and integrate a caldav/cardav sever .
I know I can do this with radicale on the openmediavault server . But I'm interested in people's view of openmediavault .

So my question is after checking distrotube for the second time this year . Should I give manjaro gnome a go?

I have very briefly played with arch before so I'm aware of pacman, but honestly I've only ever really used apt as a package manager .

Is Manjaro something you would recommend?

Hi fosstodonians ,

I need some advice , currently I use Debian 10 Gnome as my laptop distro of choice , I dabbled in mint for a year and liked it also but eventually went back to Debian .

At first I was comforted with the rock solid stability I remember, but then a few hiccups happened mainly with suspend and I remembered why I switched in the past . I remember being a little bored . Don't get me wrong Debian on my servers is brilliant , but on a laptop it left a little to be desired .

So o finished making my sonos- like speaker project using moodeaudio.org/ , a raspberry pi and a hifiberry amp2.

I found it to sound the best of all the similar projects and be less bloated in the UI .

Really happy with the look !!!!

What's everyone's opinion regarding Linux phones?

I'm quite interested in the
Although I wish it had a slightly better camera and 5ghz WiFi support , but otherwise I'm impressed .

Is a Linux phone something you would consider in 2020?


Sorry if it's naive , but should I be using 2 factor authentication or TOTP on my nextcloud and home assistant instances ? both only have 2 users . It seems all organisations are pushing, using these authentication methods now .

Any advice on setting it up ?

So I've decided to turn my old woodworking workshop, Into a super 3D printing /Tech /tinkering /Electronics and small amount of woodworking workshop .
That way I can get all my printers and electronics off the dining room table.
I just need a small heater to keep it above the due point temp and prevent it destroying my tech .

First day back, coding through my python course . I spent far too long away and I struggled to get back in the rhythm a bit . It got easier as the day went on though.
