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

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:

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

A few pics from Tampa. The northern portion of Hurricane Ian has pulled all the ocean water out of the bay. Expecting 10-12' surges when the southern side brings it all back in.

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.

Boosts welcome.

Casio shenanigans are afoot on Fosstodon... 😂

Now, I have the itch. Somehow, @kev is to blame.

Looking for work in the FLOSS space, any recommendation ?

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?

3. A......

Oh wait, I'm being annoying already. Sorry. I'm just so happy you're here!!

My command station, while out of town. Not pretty but, it gets the job done. Sporting my new wallpaper, of course. 😀

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. 🙂

Thought this was a really cool wallpaper with a retro feel 😀

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.

Anyone else using "FromScratch" for a literal scratch/note pad? Really liking how clean and simple it is.

Starting to bring the new relays online. 3 down, 9 more to go. :tor: 😎
