I haven't made changes in ages, but I think it looks pretty nice still!

PLEASE READ...

Hey Folks! We have noticed that there has been an increase in NSFW content that's being federated with .

Per our Code of Conduct (conduct.fosstodon.org) we have globally blocked those accounts.

If this affects you then we apologise, but we have to ensure Fosstodon is welcoming for as many members as possible; and having porn visible in our federated timeline detracts from that.

Thank you all for the continued support - you're all awesome!

Hey people of mastodon! Just a heads up, when installing :tux: , be sure to double check what number you have selected!

Or else you will end up like me with a 2.5TB partition and a 16GB home partition... 😑

The most fulfilling part of my job is seeing/hearing users happier than when I found them. Not like any of them are in dire straits, but the fact that they've got that kick in their step after (figuratively) fills me with joy

@miwilc only because they made it and they shared it, it doesn't mean people are allowed to steal it.

People don't care about the time that goes into designing, studying, testing and developing software. Even developers just assume that because something is free software then it must be released to everyone equally, without accounting for the real part, the part that cannot be made free or that can be recovered.

Time is money no matter which way one looks at it, and if it's not money, it's something of equal value. Free as in free beer does not exist. Free means a loss. There is just so much money one can lose before products can't be released freely anymore.

This also applies to communism, before someone comes bitching about it. Only because communism doesn't rely on money, it doesn't mean that only because a developer releases something for free they are entitled to recieve free items later on.

No matter the political idealogy, if something is free it means its creator doesn't need it to survive. There is only so much one doesn't need before one stops surviving.

How do I make online friends

wait... this isn't DuckDuckGo

I think the entire community needs to move away from the idea of noob friendly, or more "hardcore" distros.

Ease of installation isn't important here, as anyone tenacious enough can find a guide online to install ANY distro with relative ease.

What we should be focusing on is workflow. Does the distro's workflow match your workflow? If so, it's a winner. Being simple to install is just a bonus.

I am looking for a digital #artist to commision for three assets for the mastodon client @Tusky: A generic "elephant friend", an image for the error view (maybe a sad elephant?) and an image for the empty view (maybe a sleeping elephant?). Must look good on dark and light background and fit well with material design. Artist must be ok with the assets being published under an open source license. Vector assets preferred. Commission will of course be payed.
Pls boost!

I'm debating whether I should install Linux mint 19 , currently I use debian buster and I've been using debian for about 2 years . Is Linux mint really a distribution only suited for new users?

Ok I'm looking for an to start contributing to, but I have literally no idea where to start. I have some experience (only casual / hobbyist) and I'm willing to learn other languages. I've been reading posts about how to start, but it's difficult to make any kind of choice because there are so many options...

Anyone done this before? Any tips? It's a bit overwhelming...

Chilly this morning.
