I wrote a short script that downloads YouTube videos from channels I like so I can watch them wherever I want, whenever I want, and with whatever media player I want.
There is now a Mastodon instance for publishing scientists: FediScience.
Everyone is welcome from PhD student to professor, as well as researchers from outside of academia. You are welcome to stay afterwards, but it is also easy to change to another server.
There will be a lot of science talk on this server, but there is no need to only talk science
Boosts are appreciated to let others know about this new instance.
Time is 13:37, so let's make this #official 🎉
Let's make distributed identity happen! 😎
I noticed #Ubuntu has fixed the virtual keyboard to appear when selecting text fields again in touch screen mode! This was working on 19.04 and wasn't working on 20.04 on launch.
Nice to see that #Bitwarden have released their roadmap.
Luckily this was mostly written down earlier, so I get to catch up on my #100DaysToOffload which I'm sorely behind. 😃
Getting Started with #Mycroft
Last night I was talking with my mom on the phone. She was telling me she wanted to share large files with my aunt, but wasn't keen on using Google Drive and the likes.
I bursted in laughter. "Mom", I said, "I just set up an account for you on my #Nextcloud instance. Here's your username and password." 🤓
We spent the next 20 minutes going over the thing. She was pretty excited. She'll turn 75 this year. I'm proud how she's embraced technology. 😄
Blog post: What's up with K-9 Mail?
He has high hopes for this project (as do I), any webdevs out there want to jump in and help?
