Ive been using Rclone a lot recently to manage Cloud storage. I can honestly say its probably the biggest time (and bandwidth) saving tool I've used.
The most useful feature is the ability to "check" integrity of files. The remote files have their md5 checksums generated server side, then compared to local files.
I have a 100gb photos backup that takes under 20 minutes to verify on a home broadband connection.
No dealing with horrible electron sync apps either!
Neverwinter (enhanced edition) is working fine on Mint21.
X3 was a little more complicated for a few reasons. 32 bit build and there was a number of dependency issues when launching it.
Egosoft/GOG have shipped it with a /game/lib folder and some of the libraries are not even correct versions. Luckily by removing the affected libraries, the executable goes looking in system paths.
The game is still sold, so its disappointing nobody has fixed the installer or updated the readme . Easy fix...
This is straight from the bullseye apt repo, so would probably run smoother with a rebuild specific for the cortex A72.
I'm still working my way through #HOPE2022 talks. Such a variety of great content.
Just finished watching A Brief History of Yugoslav Computing, by @mejs
It's so interesting seeing the early years of networking and computing from different parts of the world.
Thanks for a great talk @mejs
What I'm really interested in is a way to use #Nextcloud Talk to interact with "direct messages"-not channels on discord.
Does anyone know if there's a way to do this?
I have friends on there but refuse to install the intrusive android client.
Made the mistake of updating my #nextcloud desktop Appimage , which apparently doesn't store login data anymore for the last 3 minor releases.
Back to 3.5.1 for me. 🤷♂️
When looking up people who also use Twitter, I'm always saddened how many Bot services show up that mirror accounts.
A few issues with this.
1. They are run with no permission from the original owner.
2. Some are outdated, holding historical posts or accounts that the author has deleted. Not exactly GDPR compliant!
Given there's a lot of "control your own data" and "privacy" ethos in the fediverse, I'm surprised some of these these get followed and boosted, rather than blocked and reported.
This is the only social platform I will click on Trending topics and not regret it. #yunohost looks really interesting.
Keeping cool through the latest heatwave with some low powered entertainment.

Time to upgrade the #Raspberrypi to deb 11 bullseye!
The #zxspectrum and compatibles emulator ZEsarUX 10.0 "Sir Clive Edition" has been released. Its a really nice update, and should keep me busy until my #zxspectrumnext eventually shows up. https://github.com/chernandezba/zesarux/releases/tag/10.0
