Nice to be here, really love what I saw so far from Mastodon.
I am a Software Developer, living near Hamburg, Germany.
Besides that I am playing video game, love NFL football and am writing poetry from time to time as well as fictional short stories and running a personal blog (which needs more attention and love the next time) at crowbyte.org and you can find my on most social networks as crowbyte.
Looking forward to here from you all.
Finally had the time to tinker a bit with the #p2p #Beaker Browser. Beaker not only enables you to make your own p2p projects but it's also very easy to modify existing projects and make them your own. I made a very simple website but the Beaker browser is needed to visit because of the #dat protocol.
Some of you may know me from mastodon.social. I am a FLOSS user and a free culture advocate. I'm also into music.

Did you know that vim's `:w` command can pipe the saved buffer directly to a shell command? I didn't: in the past, I'd done things like `:w` and then `:! wc -w %` to count the words in a file. But I could do the same thing with `:w !wc -w`! Even better, `:w` can operate on a text object, so a command like `vip:w !wc -w` will count the words in the current paragraph!
(And if, like me, you use vim for tooting, `:w !wc -c` gives you the chars in the current toot.)
The new European #CopyrightDirective is a threat for all internet creators in the #EU and a warning for all outside the EU. #Article13 of the directive will inevitably lead to uploadfilters. With this directive the EU parliament has demonstrated that the interests of the big IP holders are more important to them than representing the EU citizens. Having said that I wonder if the Fediverse could be the answer to this threat?
@ericbuijs I moved from Apple to Linux. Initially only because my laptop got water damaged and I couldn’t afford a new one because they’re so expensive. I couldn’t stand not using Unix so installed Linux on my ‘temporary’ laptop. Then when the time came that I had money for a new MacBook... I realised that I didn’t want one anymore. (:
My 2 biggest concerns about big blue purchasing Red Hat are what will change with Fedora and CentOS. Standard procedure on a purchase like this is that the new owners claim nothing will change. Eventually, they will get their claws into the purchased company and there will be layoffs and other cuts as bottom line concerns mount. Especially when the price tag was very high.
I thought I should do my #introduction! My name is Jack, and I have been running Linux full time for about 2 years. Currently I am on Manjaro KDE. I am also a lover of horror, and thought I should share my laptop lol. It is a pleasure to meet everyone!
