I am so very happy that #Mastodon does not show the boost & favourite count from posts in the timeline. You can only see it when opening the posts and that's enough I think.

Facebook, IG, Twitter and other social media are playing far too much on people with showing the numbers everywhere making it more a popularity contest. It's not about the amount of boosts or likes or whatever, it's the content that matters.

First Post from Tootle on my new Manjaro Pinephone. It has some scaling issues but other than that is working great :)

DHL says my PinePhone is out for delivery. I'm excited to get my hands on it and start exploring the world of Linux phones.

As a software developer there is no such thing as being done with learning, ever.

80% of the tools and technologies I work with today didn't exist 10 years ago, and 80% of the tools and technologies you will be working with 10 years from now are just being invented right now.
