Proud Dad moment when your 6yo son is getting ready for school in the other room and you hear him singing AC/DC.

He's a chip off the old block!

Been really enjoying playing around with @nextcloud recently. Their markdown editor is really good, and it’s nice to see that their Talk app has improved a lot.

Any PiHole users know of a block list that can prevent YouTube ads? (Is that even possible?)

Hello world!
I'm a PhD student (physical oceanography) and accidental Python instructor in Norwich, UK.

Good to see an article like this from someone like the ABC,

“But in a country with so little civil society infrastructure, our heavy reliance on a corporation to provide such a fundamental public service is deeply problematic.

Facebook, Inc. doesn't care about your fundraiser or political protest.

It couldn't care less about your art exhibition.”

Simple.css Theme Wordpress is a template that allows us to use the framework on our blog. The result is a super lightweight, high performance, and beautiful blog. Thanks to @kev 🙂

I took 2 days off work this week (today and tomorrow) only to find that my wife has “surprised” me by hiring a skip so I can clear out the loft and garage.

...oh, there’s also a shed for me to build too.

FML 🤦‍♂️

Hi @kev, I saw your and it is really beautiful. I would like to create a wordpress theme based on it. Before I start:
- I ask your permission
- I ask you if you know someone who has already done it

thanks :)

Pretty much 4 years ago today, I said the following on my blog:

“I personally moved over to Bitwarden around 6 months ago, following the price rises by LastPass, as well as the fact that they had been purchased by LogMeIn – who have a proven track record of not treating their users very well.”

Kev in 2017 was a very, very wise man.

I'm sure you will all be thrilled to know that my new rig now has 2 12v, 4 pin Noctua fans in it that are working perfectly! 😂

Mission complete!

Greetings fellow cyber humans!

Jen here. I'm a and Computer Science from Arizona, United States.

I'm new to the Fediverse, and excited to explore. Just wanted to give a quick and say

:android: :fosstodon: :gimp: :github: :fsf: :inkscape: :krita:

So change from Auto to DC, which helped (its a 3 pin 120mm noctua) but it still spins at like 1700rpm. If I plug the old one back in, which is a cooler master, it’s absolutely fine. It’s also a 120mm 3pin.

No idea what’s going on with the Noctua. Gonna flip back to the Cooler Master for now I think.
