thoughts.. wiped off my puter. I dont like the package manager, among other things. Back to Kubuntu for now, rocking the Developers beta of Ubuntu 20.04. I feel at home during these times of crisis. :)

OK, so this is my shot...

It's the Pi with nextcloud... But I thought that a little wttr.in might be nice, as well, it's really a headless server with really no need for that screen at the moment.

After installing 's Clear Linux on my Dell Latitude 3340- i3-4005U @ 1.7Ghz / 4Gb RAM / 250Gb SSD

@donteaford If (more like when) Apple starts producing and using their own CPUs, I think Intel may try to market Clear Linux

Just a suggestion for people who want to cross post from Mastodon to Twitter. Mastodon by default has an RSS feed of your account. Just add .rss to your profile address like this:

fosstodon.org/@mike.rss

Using this method, any service that posts to Twitter from RSS can act as a cross poster.

After much thought I am actually (I cant believe I'm saying this) going to try a go. Ofcourse not as my daily OS (not yet atleast) but I am curious what exactly Intel thinks they can do better than every other distro out there. And I start to wonder.. Are they actually preparing to attempt to go head to head with and ? Is this their plan? I'd say if it is, they may in time actually have a good chance. But if not, then what is 's purpose for ? Hrm..

To everyone who trashed my post about .. duelly noted i see all of your views and even agree with some of them. Most important to me however is that provides an alternative to social media. These days EVERYONE and THEIR MOTHER "LITERALLY" is on it and gives up ALOT of personal information without even thinking of the future problems that may arise from them blindfully inputing all of ther information. They may aswell put their CC# and SS# on there also. lol

@donteaford I don't have time to fact check at the moment, but I don't believe Discord is decentralized. They also lock you in to their terms of agreement and install software on your computer that monitors all of your running processes.

@donteaford You should check this HN post if you really think discord is a good platform: news.ycombinator.com/item?id=2

For those of us who have or haven't heard of ... Check it out now.. its kind of like twitch, but decentralized. Also.. I made us a nice comfy to hang out in and chill.. heres the link...

I have to commend the programming language for everything they're doing, I think that they're really making waves and pushing us forward, more so than , , , and . There's constantly new stuff being written in this programming language. I even found another command line fuzzy search program today by the name of . Heres the link too check it out on your own! Let me know what you think!

So I know alot of people have been switching to recently in an attempt to get away from . However.. I noticed a few negative things.. 1-The HUGE amounts of memory that this program uses int the background is ridiculous. Even if the app hasn't been open aftter your computer is rebooted the LBRY app will use about 10% of your memory.. run a andsee. 2- The fact that the videos you choose to stream are automatically downloaded to your machine.. RIDICULOUS!

Thank you everyone for so many welcomes, supports, comments, and shares! I am grateful for all of you! I had somoone ask about the Local Weather info line at the top of my script. Is anyone else interested in how to add this to your neofetch config? if so, I'll post it here.. Thanks!

So I bought my wife an iPhone 8 around 3 months ago. She just asked me for my headphones, I explained that the 8 doesn’t have a headphone jack.

She didn’t believe me, looked at every edge on her phone then exclaimed “well that’s fucking stupid! I wouldn’t have got one if I’d known!”

This made my laugh more than it probably should have.

...she has now stolen my Bluetooth earbuds.

Just joined Mastodon today from many recommendations. Ofcourse I'm a Linus user and FOSS supporter!! Heres a fresh of what I currently run. Elementary 5.1.2 OS/ 5.3.0 Kernel / Terminology / ZSH 5.4.2 -Powerlevel10k CLI & Broot for fuzzy search. What do you guys like to run for your fuzzy searches at command line? FZH, Dmenu, or BRoot?
