First step is a day of sleeping.. next have to fix the ethernet jacks in the house as everything is on wireless right now. #techcation
"Freedom browser" series part 3!
The developer of aforementioned Librefox seems to have DISAPPEARED.
The community is wondering whether Mozilla (makers of Firefox) is behind it.
Yes: Mozilla has been very sketchy on recent times.
They were supposed to be the big torchbearer for freedom but have in opinion of many actually turned against the people.
Meet LIBREWOLF. A forked Librefox, then.
I need to get a @pixelfed account setup so I can properly show off my food pics. Today was chicken breasts done one a charcoal grill with offset heat. Takes 90min to cook properly but do my gosh so good. Tried a new seasoning today for the chicken. Usually just salt and pepper with some cherry wood. I think they turned out amazing
thanks to whoever packed up youtube-dl to a snap. The version in the repos for Mate is erroring out, but uninstalled from repo, installed snap and back to grabbing like normal. #THANKYOU
I am running @ubuntumate and loving it. From a stability standpoint is it best to use snaps for apps, or the repos? I have stuck with snaps on Gnome as it seemed to help. Oddly the Mate Software Boutique cannot tell I have a number of snaps that match installed such as browser. About to move my wife from OSX to MATE and so want it rock solid. Any advice from the community and devs would be appreciated. @Wimpy @popey

Can someone please explain to me why one would Linux in a VM on a Windows machine?
You are literally running the most efficient piece of software on top of the most inefficient piece of shit (can't call it software for obvious reasons). #WSL
I'd just like to say, big props to #DuckDuckGo for this type of answer. Very cool.
I am on android 9 and trying to figure out the best app for mastodon. Currently using @firstname.lastname@example.org but the interface is overwhelming. Trying out @Purism librem.one social app and it is much slimmer but seems like it might be to overly simplified. What are the other suggest apps to manage toots on Android that may be between those two?
I need a new creative SSID for the house any ideas. Last one was "Freddy Eight Fingers" named after this spider on our deck that killed many wasps. We had just watched one of th godfather movies and I made a comment and named the spider. This spring I found Freddy dead on the deck so out of respect I want to change my SSID also. I realize this is a stupid post but hey I am curious as to what others think. I saw @popey post the Trai. SSID one today and so thought I would ask.
