If your laptop doesn't have stickers, is it even a laptop?

Pretty happy with my new wallpaper. :ubuntumate:

I've just realised that the first distro I used was Hardy (8.04). That means I've now been a Linux user for an entire decade.

Wow, that went quick...

Support @Gargron & mastodon on Patreon. They are doing some amazing work!

Seems like it's between Name Cheap and Gandi. I'll check both out, thanks guys,

Domain hosting recommendations. Go...

Why am I telling you this? Because its important to be transparent on projects like this. Plus, it's awesome that @mike has agreed to step up and partner with me. Thank you, Mike.

So the whole debacle concerns me (link below if you don't know what the dealio is). I started Fosstodon and the buck stops with me. I don't want the same thing to happen here (not that in planning on leaving!!) so I've been speaking to @mike and we're gonna do everything 50/50.

The only exception being the payments for thing, for obvious reasons. However, he will have access to all accounts to change payment details if needed.

Toot continues...

I'm pretty new to the whole thing. I've installed a couple, but none of them have the system theme applied, making them look like Windows 95. No problem for some apps, but for others, it's a real issue.

Any idea what going on here folks?

If you want to support the project, we have a patron page: patreon.com/fosstodon

If you prefer a one off donation, you can do so via PayPal: paypal.me/fosstodon

If you prefer not to donate at all, that's cool too - we still love having you around.

We may also setup a LibrePay page if people would prefer?

Thanks for the support guys, you're all awesome!

@mike and I have setup an official Fosstodon account for the instance. This will contains all announcements etc. going forward. Please give @fosstodon a follow, as it will contain some useful info.

Finally the logo is in . I have, of course, now updated my personal site with it.

I'm seeing lots of posts about . Did something happen that I missed?

Also finally added some (very simply) artwork to the about page.

The mastoverse, as part of an assignment for a uni subject. More visualizations soon #gephi #dataviz

So our Patreon page is funded over $20/month now. Guys, thank you all so much for the support. $20/m doesn't sound a lot, but it's a huge help.
