Pinned toot

So, you've joined Fosstodon and are wondering, "now, how does this work?"

One thing that sets Fosstodon apart from traditional social media outlets (and some other instances) is the community's willingness to help and offer valuable feedback. This is especially true with new members.

Please don't hesitate to raise a hand (toot) and ask questions. If you prefer some reading material, @kev has written a great article to help you get started:

Well, I officially deleted my Facebook account, today. Although I've not used it for a couple years, I've not officially flipped the switch until today. From what I understand, I have to maintain some sort of regular account in order to manage a couple pages/groups that I have so, I made a new one that's pretty sterile and deleted the old.

Feels nice to finally check that one off the ol' list of things to do. 😀

Been needing to get back on the blogger-wagon. I'm horrible with keeping up with it and, most of the time, feel like "whatever is on my mind" isn't generally interesting to other folks. That seems to be what most people complain about when it comes to blogging. 😑

Anyone with OnionShare experience out there? Just saw the toot ( from @torproject and wanted to know if any of you had tried the current or previous versions.

Ok new've been lurking long enough. Go ahead and drop that toot and tell us a bit about yourself. 😀

Anyone play Veloren? Curious to hear your thoughts, compared to the similar alts.

Is anyone here using as a daily driver? Maybe on their ? I'm wondering if I should use my spare Pi as a computer with a wireless keyboard and mouse.

Not sure what the point would be, it just sounds cool 😂

@danslerush Hey bud. Just wanted to let you know that your Notepad++ theme/style is my favorite out of the lot. Well done. 😀

Thanks for all the suggestions. Going to do a bit more testing but, it sounds like I'd be better off using Signal in conjunction with my regular SMS app vs. a complete replacement. 😀

Well, I gave another try and messages have been really sporadic. My wife has sent several messages that I never received, with Signal set as my primary text app. Most recently, I haven't received any message from her over the course of a 4 day span. I switched back to the default Android messaging app and all of the texts came through.

It's disappointing because I had discontinue using Signal, a couple years ago, for the same reason.

Started to think about setting up a Home server, but honestly I'm completely lost.

Do you know any good guides or any tips on the subject? Can I repurpose an old laptop or should I buy a new one?

Don't know how to code but still want to contribute to open projects? Consider open street maps!

OSM is the community built map of the world. Anyone can edit the map and all the data is freely available and usable in any of your projects.

Start in your own neighborhood. Maybe your street is missing or named wrong. Update the corner shop hours. Map the parks or sidewalks. Anything helps and many hands make light work!

Day 8 -

Has anyone attempted a custom OS flash for the Lenovo Tab M10 Plus, 10.3" (Model: ZA5T0263US)? This is a really nice looking tablet and for $148, it's priced well.
