Choices are Good.

While in vanilla Mastodon world, getting an admin to consider allowing more than the miserable 500 characters maximum toot size is a Tall Order -- I tried a few times, and was denied almost always, in more Advanced places we see innovation and openness.

Was just surprised to find not the Usual TWO choices of Front Ends (user interfaces, or web clients) at one of the Pleroma instances I have accounts on.

At, admin @a1batross now has 4 (FOUR!) choices at your disposal.

Pick between :

Pleroma FE, high polish, and full featured.
Mastodon FE, the usual web client most mastodonians will feel at home in.

Plus -- and this is all his customizing :

Bloat FE
And the brand new SoapBox FE, which just released it's 1.0 version.

I had seen SoapBox at other instance and been impressed. And it's nice to see it now available at FAB, EMR, and probably other places too.

Congrats to @a1ba and @alex !

I'm a gamer and try to keep it linux as much as possible. Just read that Titanfall2 is now available on steam and that multiplayer works as fine as expected. I'm willing to forget about apex for the time being and fo full-on TF|2 !
If you like fps's this game is heavily underrated and silly amounts of fun !
Keep in mind that if this is your first time, the skillgap is savage...

Working towards supporting the Flatpak future by integrating sandbox permissions. Should be easy to review app permissions and adjust them to your needs

Re:Zero 5 volume has been the best so far.

it's important to remember that while Apple tech may seem attractive, it robs its user of key freedoms. Learn more about the dangers of proprietary software, and how you can live a fully free digital life. #fsf #hackerethics :hacker: :crt_w_green_lines: :crt_w_prompt: :gnu:

Would you like to know in near real time what is being written to a file 📝 or watch live how your 💽 hard drive is filling up? With watch 👓 this is possible:

$ watch -td df -h

The -t option turns off the header and -d highlights changes. We see with 'watch' and the command 'df -h' what's happening.

For example, this is a small 🕰️ clock for the 💻 terminal:

$ watch -t -n1 date

Where -n sets the update interval to 1 second. Default is 2.

For the folks out there using multiple mail inboxes: how is your workflow? How many do you use?

I am switching to Migadu from Protonmail (due to standard IMAP and SMTP protocols) and I am choosing the different inboxes to use. I'd really like some suggestions/experience on this.
