Pinned toot

I'm a software developer. I believe in Libre software , decentralisation, encryption by default, and also functional programming.

I currently am on with .

Unordered set of stuff I like:
- Steampunk
- Cycling
- Goa Trance
- Uplifting Trance
- Synthwave
- Electro Swing
- Nightcore

I've just played the Who Am I? game with some friends

and that gave me an idea:

This game but with objects.

But of course in addition to "Yes" or "No" you could answer with [DATA EXPUNGED] as well, to account for ██████████████ of ███████████████████████.

Back when the GNU project was starting, among the first things they rewrote as Free Software were:
- text editor / IDE (Emacs)
- assembler, linker, and compiler
- make

IOW, they made tools that they needed to further develop Free Software without relying on proprietary tools.

They wanted their project to be self-hosting.

Nowadays, we have more free software than ever, but we develop it using github and Discord...

If you're on Mastodon and know the web address of someone on the Fediverse, you can use this to follow them.

1. Copy their profile's web address into the Mastodon search box (see screenshots).

2. Click search, this should bring up a link to the profile and a follow button next to it.

3. Click follow!

This works with many kinds of Fediverse addresses including PixelFed, PeerTube and others. Try it!

You can also use this technique with web addresses of individual posts.

I've been lurking here for a while now thought I might officially introduce myself. I am a software developer, cartographer, FOSS enthusiast, and bird watcher. I love to develop in and on with an

That'd be a nice little project, tbh. There's so many things in Linux that are only accessible from the command line, so integrating this timed functionality into the GUI would be great.

Maybe make it so that holding SHIFT when clicking the Shutdown/Reboot button opens a dialog that allows a time to be selected.

When the time is confirmed, then a notification icon is added, letting the user to cancel the scheduled shutdown/reboot.

Lastly, it does a reminder notification a few minutes before.

YOU: so the A in RAID stands for "Array"?
US: Yes.
YOU: doesn't that mean saying "RAID array" is redundant?
US: Of course. That's what the R is for.

It's really surprising to me that there are still no non-profit alternatives to Uber and Lyft.

I would love to see somebody start a non-profit org and make an open source app for ride sharing.

Naughtylus :archlinux: :gnome: boosted I think it does actually stand to reason that YTP is the epitome of free culture. Just people fucking around with creation tools to build their creative muscle or convey some meaning with no care in the world about DRMs or copyrights or whatnots. I think, it should be encouraged.

Why does time have to be so linear?

Can't I just skip to the part when it's over already, and then come back to it later when I feel like it?

I have this important thing that I should be doing right now, but here I am, washing dishes.

'Cause, y'know, it's actually more fun.

I figure it's about time that I get back involved with the / community. I've been out of touch with what's been going on these last few years even though I've been using and working with Linux for over a decade. It's time for me to get back to my hacker roots and fall in love with / software all over again. :linux:

I canceled my Librem 5 preorder. It's just not a good fit for me and I can't force it to be so. I'm not a privacy nut or a Google hater. I'm not even a die-hard Linux nut, really.

On the plus side, all it took was one short email to get my money back. Top notch customer service from Purism here.

Punctuation can make the difference between a sentence that is well written and a sentence that is, well, written.
