Hi, I'm Graeme , from North West England.
I worked in IT for many years, but became tired of the "mainstream" industry and big data companies.
I am a big #privacy advocate, believing in the freedom to control our own data in the cloud and on our devices, supporting people where I can with this. Long term #Linux user, #raspberrypi tinkerer, #retrocomputing enthusiast.
Hoping there's lots of like-minded people here on fosstodon!
A public announcement to all of Fosstodon:
You guys are awesome. I tried 3 Mastodon instances already and this one is the only one, where I actually prefer to browse Local feed instead of my personal Home.
#zxspectrumnext Kickstarter just passed £1.3 million, still has 14 days to go.

MS Onedrives "ransomware" detection is causing chaos for Cryptomator users, flagging the AES encrypted files as ransomware. If you are a Cryptomator user (or any enryption user in the cloud) please support this petition to make the "protection" optional.

Hi all, I have a Windows 10 - Desktop sharing question.
I do teaching sessions with 2-3 apprentices in Excel. Usually id just sit with them and share a mouse, but due to Covid I'm looking for ways to share the screen.
Can anyone recommend a desktop sharing application that works well on a LAN?
Theres no need for audio/video as ill be in the same room.
Ideally this will be free, internal, not require a microsoft account signin (i believe this rules out MS quickassist?)
I've seen lots of posts and opinions recently about how email is broken, mainly due to (I think) the rise of Hey.
Here are my thoughts...
Day 59 of the #100DaysToOffload Series:
I didn't have the time I wanted to really put this through it's paces today, so I wrote up a really quick less than 300 words opinion of UbuntuDDE.
Linux Mint 20 released. Time to upgrade for me.
If #Google knew everything about you, they would’ve stopped listening to everything you say.
Be an active participant in your goal to remain private.
Avoid #surveillancecapitalism by choosing to make (sometimes difficult) decisions. Give your money to better companies with products that respect you more.
I really like the toot feed I get from people I follow. I also like the instance feed. The global feed not that much since it's chaos 😀 I like that you can simply block an annoying bot/reposter-maniac and continue enyoing the content. Don't remember being on a such well self-curated platform ever. Also people are nice and helpful no matter what topic discussed. Kudos to all of you making it a welcome place! 👋
