@kev has written a great article to help you get started:
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.
For anyone wanting to truly de-Google their phone but remain on Android, push notifications are often the Achilles' heel. To address this, @threemaapp have built their own push service. That's commitment to privacy.
On the topic of which, surprised Threema isn't, yet, a listed messaging service on @privacyguides
Send me a private Mastodon message with a positive integer number, before the end of September 2022 (Irish time). Whoever sends me the smallest number that is unique (i.e. a number no one else sent), picks a charity of their choice and I will pay €10 to that charity (must accept PayPal donations). If you send more than 1 number, only the first one counts. Anything other than a single positive integer number (dates, fractions, equations, cat pictures, URLs) will be ignored.
I just shared a picture of my watch I had, from there Casio showed up, and now a small trend started on Fosstodon for some reason. It now out of my control but I am here for it...
Oh no. @vivaldibrowser is in the Fed. I love your browser, and for my money is the best available, but now I'm going to annoy you endlessly for feature requests like.....
1. An intent on mobile to share directly to Reading List?
2. A PWA for the Notes screen?
Oh wait, I'm being annoying already. Sorry. I'm just so happy you're here!!
I'm sure I've shared this before but, Cory Henry (Snarky Puppy) absolutely kills it in Lingus. I won't give the time stamp because it's worth listening to the entire thing (including the build up).
Not sure who the original artist is but, hats off to them. 🙂
For perspective, I am NOT a Linux Wizard so, this is like learning how to ride a bike or learning to swim but, more like, I'm treading water and someone throws me a bike. 😂
After some amassing some frustrations with Windows (on my work laptop) over the past few weeks, it was time for a fresh OS install. I've been running Zorin (for a while) on a spare laptop, to get acclimated to it. Last night I decided to tear the bandaid off and install Zorin on my main work laptop...full commitment. I think some Linux angels are supposed to get their wings or something, now. 😜
Now, I'm rocking an absurdly overpowered Precision 5560 (i9 w/64GB of RAM). Buttery smooth.
