@tychi hehe 😁 you should. If you like solid and stable systems, you are going to love Debian. It just works well.

@tychi I see. 😁 I don’t use Bluetooth keyboards either.

@tychi oh ok, if they are problematic on your MacBook as well, I doubt that it could be self inflicted. 😉 But that is quite interesting. Did you also had problems with Bluetooth keyboards?

@tychi Yes, I think most people start with derivates like ubuntu. Really? I have never had any audio issues whatsoever. Debian is always a rock solid system, at least from my experience...but I have never used ubuntu so can’t really say anything about that. Have always used ALSA over PulseAudio and Never had issues with it (knocking on wood ;) After a lot of Linux Distro hopping...I can say I do not like Rolling distros, and I always come back to Debian (Linux wise).

@fribbledom that looks pretty neat..I’m gonna try that out. 😊

@tychi I have never tried PopOS but if I go with Linux I always use Debian...it worked the best out of all distros I have tried so far. Besides that my main desktop system is FreeBSD with XFCE desktop environment. Works like a charm.

"Back in the days, everything was better"...isn't a statement to be lightly made. However in the case of the modern internet it is. Gone are the days of lean and efficient websites consisting mainly of self-written portions of semantic HTML, CSS and sprinkles of scripting (either PHP and or Javascript). They had to make way for websites, consisting mainly of scripts/frameworks generating HTML and CSS, topped of with a steep incline of alongside running ads and surveillance tools.

Privacy Friendly Club Rule 1: Practice what you preach.

Your landing page for a "privacy-first" product makes calls to Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, Google Optimize, Adroll, Marketo and a few more.

Has anyone tried to use GNUnet? Been stumbling across it lately. A decentralised web protocol seems quite promising. Any experiences with it?

@celia ..or going outside for a walk. 😊 But writing a post is also time well spent.

@tychi I do use thunderbird and I’m super happy with it.

@tychi @celia @kev Fira is quite nice, I have to agree with that. I use Camingo Code.

@kev I used Hugo and Lektor as my generators of choice.

@mike @tychi that is true. I was just wondering... because if you have to rely on proper functioning hands for your daily job, the lesser downtime you have, the better. 🙂

@tychi that is definitely not cool at all. Did they tell you how long it will take to heal?
