Pretty happy with alpha 0.1.31 - some quirks and bugs that I know workarounds / way to behave that need to be ironed out but can pretty much use full time on mobile and desktop. Here is a YouTube video showing off functions

I saw a toot about someone's blog post telling how they moved from #ubuntu to #debian as it is less "corporate"

The amount of downtime Disroot's Nextcloud News service has is verging on the ridiculous.

Got an email from EA about FIFA (a game I play a lot) asking me to complete a survey.

@jbauer Removing posts you don't like really isn't in the spirit of the challenge. From the page:

"Posts don’t need to be long-form, deep, meaningful, or even that well written. If there are spelling and grammar mistakes, or even if there’s no real point to the post, so what? What’s important is that you’re writing about the things you want to write about."

I say keep em, regardless of whether they meet your normal standards.

Right then. It seems lack of clarity on device rules was causing family conflict, so we've sat down as a family this morning to do the following:

1. Wrote down (individually) what we think the current rules are. Had a discussion.

2. Wrote down (individually) what we think the future rules should be. Had another discussion.

3. Collaboratively came up with rules that everyone could agree to. Signed them, and pinned to fridge.
