So I just read that @Gargron likes it when people use Mastodon on their "social media links." I've been doing this for quite some time on my website:

Still waiting for Fontawesome to release a Mastodon icon though!

Hmmmmm I have a spare computer at home. Should I turn it in to a headless @nextcloud server, so I don't have to have my instance hosted with someone else? Decisions decisions...

Sorry I missed yesterday, I had trouble getting to my phone!

They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Lest we forget.

Yes!!! @tootdon just added theme support to their app. Nice work guys! Also loving the improvements that @Tusky are making. Can’t decide which I prefer, so it’s on the iPad and on the phone. πŸ˜‰

Here's the final article in my De-Googling series - what products and services I can't replace.

Can't stop looking at my new shrimp tank, I find them (and the fish we picked to accompany them) are just incredible.

What's your favourite Linux application and why? GO...

Spent the last two days redesigning my site in , just so I didn't have to run a dedicated server for my current site (based on ). WP just isn't a patch on Ghost, screw it, I'll just have to keep the two servers running.

I'm lost, what's the deal with oats? I don't understand the context.

When you have spent the last couple of months developing a new tool that will automatically generate a plain text awareness email and send it to senior leaders. They're testing it and feedback with "it's good, but can you make these bits of text coloured depending on priority"


Ok guys, it's done. Gmail is a goner and the process of De-Googling my life is complete!

So I'm usually a Thunderbird or Geary kinda guy. Having not used Evolution for quite a few years, I decided to give it a whirl on my new set up...

It's awesome! Card/CalDAV right out the box, the UI is great once you have a nice theme installed, and the functionality is up there with Outlook (for all the MS do, I think Outlook is a superb product).

If you're like me and have discounted Evolution for a long time, give it try, you might be pleasantly surprised.

Saturday morning run with my little training partner. Remember folks, just because we're geeks doesn't mean we can't be fit!πŸ‘

It's Ubuntu Mate, Jim, but not as we know it.

Very happy indeed with . I think I will most definitely be sticking with this for a while - It's like Ubuntu was back in 2012...when it was good!

@Tusky up date on the bug of not being able to boost and favourite - looks like it's only within notifications. Feeds are fine.
