The "inside chest_bot" text adventure got an upgrade and moved to it's own home... Just mention the bot to start a new game!

Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.

@pcrock the main trouble I had with mine was a cheap power supply. Once I change that it was OK.

@jamie uuugh. Mind sending me the link to something as I don't use the site.?

I'm curious now so will see if someone at home can run a test for me.

@jamie would a pihole on the network help enough? Or Blokada on a mobile?

@ConnyDuck is there a way to see if toots are part of a thread when scrolling?

Just thinking it would save opening some up if the whole toot was already visible.

We have updated the featured applications in #Ubuntu Software. Have a browse and find something new today. bit.ly/2INRWNZ

@charlag @Chiefzero @lakeview @Tutanota thanks, that's useful information.

I understand encrypted contacts on the device will be hard. I should have clarified my position better, I'm happy for them to be left unencrypted which I know doesn't suit everyone.

Thanks for the suggestions.
DIY on second thoughts might not be good for this project due in last to lack of time.

I think I've sourced a free APC 1500 though. 😁

@kev @patdavid
No worries. I've been stalking Pats site for a while now, just don't tell him ;)


Pat David covered a way of switching themes using local storage to keep the setting without using cookies.


He's on Mastodon too I've just seen.

@patdavid thanks for your content. :)

@Tutanota @Chiefzero

Do you know if contact syncing between email and android is working now? Asking because with a free account it doesn't look like it's seeing my contacts when I compose a new email.

@rudolf good question. It was but it as if not considered building one. What do your know about a DIY solution?

@ndegruchy thanks. Will run any prospective unit on there.

Could use some advice on for my 918

I'm suffering from sudden power cuts at home recently so need something to protect the NAS.

Requirements are to safely shutdown the box (almost immediately is OK). Nothing else needs to be on the Ups that I can think of as I can't get the router near the NAS.

Any input much appreciated.

Hi hi hi! I uploaded a proof of concept puzzle game to Itch in an attempt to raise $400 to finish up the much-improved follow-up.


Boosting would be much appreciated.

@cavaliertusky @brandon for me I always saw a snow covered mountain with some red thing at the top.

Today's work. I was super tired while painting, and I always thought it didn't look good. But now I think it's beautiful.

Is it just the keyboard and screen that you particularly enjoy? If so, why?
