Ey up,
I heard of Mastodon yesterday from a tweet sent out from my RaspPi bot, telling me that Google had pulled Tusky from Play.

I considered if Google doesn't like it, then it must be worth taking a look 😁

I'm a data scientist, gamer, Linux fan, husband, father, vegan, ex hedonist, recovering Yorkshireman in exile out in the colonies

I'm really impressed by how friendly this place is, and I look forward to contributing to discussions, and understanding what's going on 😋

I was wondering I’d tot use Linux...

what have you found Linux to be helpful for in data science?

@iFoss Currently I predominantly use python, Anaconda, and Jupyter Lab. Everything is easily installed and maintained via pip, and work shared via git repos.

Sure there are windows solutions, but I love the open source software and environments

@SyntaxError that’s for sharing! Also thanks for doing so even when I had so many wires in my message :p
I definitely agree! Ilike the FLOSS solutions so much ! Right note I’m learning Vim. I have not programmed in quite a while, but have it placed next. What resources have you found helpful for understanding the concepts and features of git?
Thanks for sharing!

@iFoss git is close to dns, as a dark art for me 😂

I do what I need, clone, push, pull. Beyond that I consult my colleagues and ddg

My repos, personal & corporate, are a mess and I need to follow a better practice

@iFoss I found it easier to quit smoking than Vim 🤣

I default to nano, I find it much more easy and intuitive

@SyntaxError Haha :D thanks for letting me know! I’ll make sure to find a good balance in what I use.

@redstarfish wow, I did not, thank you.

So I remember the Diaspora from years back, where would you recommend that I visit?

@SyntaxError welcome!

oh and by the way, tusky is back on the play store.

@SyntaxError Hello! :ac_happy: Welcome to our quite corner of thw internet :ac_happy:

@SyntaxError welcome :) I knew you were from oop north as soon as I saw ‘ey up’ 😁 What part of the west coast are you on?

@danny haha West Coast, I'm from a forlorn mining village in Yorkshire, that no longer has a mine, or much else going for it

@SyntaxError are there even any mines in the UK anymore? They replaced them all with data-mining callcentres I think.
