@grahambae No problem. Youtube's feeds are patterned like:

Channel: youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?c

Playlist: youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?p

For example, Extra Credits's Channel ID is UCCODtTcd5M1JavPCOr_Uydg so you would want:

youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?c

for their feed URL. It shows the 15 most recent videos and is unbiased.

Switching from to today.

Any tips for someone who's only ever used Ubuntu and Mint, and Fedora/Mandrake a long time ago?

Suggestion for Youtubers: upload your content to other platforms as well as Youtube, and encourage your viewers to watch you there instead.

As viewers, we can vote with our views by watching our favourite content creators on those platforms, and if possible make small donations to compensate for the lost ad revenue.

Finally, I've got around to jumping into the world of Mastodon.

I don't know anyone here as of yet but there are some interesting people in the feeds.

And, this seems much friendlier than certain other social media platforms.

An update on this:

Google Drive, Photos, Calendar, Contacts and Keep all replaced with .

Started with a paid host, but after a month trial with a measly 10GB plan, decided that the cost of upgrading to the storage I need would be better spent on a solution.

Next step: an 8-10TB hard drive to plug into my old laptop which is running Nextcloud, followed by shucking the drive and moving to a proper rack.

Still dragging my feet on migrating away from .

Reversed videos of coatis look like herds of tiny brontosauruses.

It's only Monday but this is definitely the greatest thing I'll see all week.

Going through the couple of hundred useless online accounts I've accumulated over the years, scrubbing my personal info, changing the passwords and deleting the accounts.

I want to go back in time and slap myself for using the same easily guessable password for pretty much everything.

What is it with a lot of bulletin board software locking personal details and having no account deletion option?

Hi I'm Dave,

I have been floating around mastodon for a year. I'm a bit of a tinkerer so I have tried to start my own instance but it wasnt my thing.

I have a degree in Archaeology and ancient Semitic languages. I worked with at risk kids and teens for the past 10 years. Absolutely loved it but got burned out emotionally. Currently a stay at home dad.

Working on my Certified Openstack Admin and Hyperledger Admin certs. Passionate about opensource implementations in non profits

Are there any FLOSS SMS apps for Android with a desktop/web client?

I'm already using KDE Connect but it seems like I can only reply to messages, not initiate conversations or view history.
