I'm a software developer. I believe in Libre software #FOSS, decentralisation, encryption by default, and also functional programming.
Unordered set of stuff I like:
- Goa Trance
- Uplifting Trance
- Electro Swing
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
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.
We’ve been wasting our processing power to train neural networks that are ten times too big.
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.
I figure it's about time that I get back involved with the #FOSS / #opensource 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 #FOSS / #opensource software all over again. #nostalgia #linux
