I work in the charity sector in the UK and they are almost exclusively MS shops, very frustrating trying to keep my Linux connecting to the various RDP connections / Citrix systems on a daily basis. The whole sector needs to take a good long look at Open Source as they spend a huge amount on tied in systems by default

In a similar process myself. I've setup Drupal for my blog, Mastodon, TT-RSS, and Matomo so far. More to come!

So my Fedora pen runs out of ink while I'm paying bills. What do I do? I find a similar pen from a local bank, take them both apart, switch ink chambers, reassemble, smile and continue. #Fedora #swag #pens

Someone said "is that still a thing?" when I announced I was on Mastodon. Is it?
Boost this so we actually get a few votes maybe? How far can it go?

@kev Couple of weeks ago you wrote a blog post about doing work that you love. I thought about it a lot and realised that I don't enjoy my work anymore and that I'm stuck in a rut - anyway, the result was that I applied for a secondment to a different team at work and I got told today that I've been successful.

Just a long way of saying thanks for writing it really.

Day 49 of the series:

I let myself get a little groupy-ish in my excitement for my new PineTab, which will be arriving really soon (hint hint @PINE64).

My post on how does work is very popular, so I decided to take some time out to give it a re-write.

Slowly jumping off the mainstream stuff one at a time, twitter deleted, google being dumped, dropbox dumped. Its a mission but worth it
