My dog, Tia (t-bone), thinks that if she stays completely still when we get ready to go for a walk, we will get out quicker. Always makes me laugh. 😂😂
The Late Night Linux gents (@JoeRess @8none1 @felimwhiteley & @degville) have published their thoughts on #fosstodon (and Mastodon in general). I personally thought a lot of what they said was fair. I particularly liked Joe’s point around the fact there’s no algorithm at work here. We’re not trying to keep people online.
I also liked the G+ analogy; again, I agree. What do you folks think?
I was thinking on how to respond to another toot tonight, and it caused me to think about Linux as a competitive desktop option.
And I think that it will never make it to desktop stardom because of business. FOSS developers spend so much time reinventing the wheel because wheel XYZ doesn't it do it for them, but no time on the tools that regular users need. For example: There are so many window managers that there's a top 20 list (https://www.ubuntupit.com/best-linux-window-managers-a-comprehensive-list-for-linux-users/). Yet there is no decent PDF editor.
Well #hello there,
I've been told an #introduction would be a good idea so:
I'm a #german #cybersecurity student with a little #sysadmin experience.
Other than studying and work I mostly use my #computer for #gaming or watching some #livestream.
Recently in the process of looking for #alternatives, like #linux over #windows, #signal over #whatsapp and so on.
Other interests include #cars, #headphones, #gadgets, #raspberrypi projects and lots of things I can't think of right now.
Something a bit different on my blog…story time. This time I talk you through the time I was run over twice in one day.
Fediverse instances are mostly run by unpaid volunteers who rely on donations to keep going. It's not just the time they give, but the running costs of the servers that they pay for.
If you use the Fediverse, please consider donating to the instance you signed up on. Donations help keep the Fedi ad-free and privacy-friendly.
On Mastodon, you can find details on how to donate by clicking "About this server" in the bottom left corner of the screen.
Improved the "Reply to this post" button on my site so that it automatically adds the post title to the subject line.
Isn't #PHP fun!
Hi there, here’s a little #introduction
I retrained (after years of repairing computers for friends and family), a couple of years ago to be an IT tech. I landed a job, which required me to automate many tasks with PowerShell, and I fell in the automation trap! so, I am currently learning Python. So here I am, to meet like-minded people, to share opinions, projects, virtual beverages…
I'm going to be trying something a little different on my blog over the next few weeks/months.
This is an exceptionally good write up about what’s actually happening with the whole #Apple saga.
Far too much hyperbole and not enough facts.
The size of the average web page (defined as the average page size of the 500,000 most popular websites) increased from 0.45 megabytes in 2010 to 1.7 megabytes in June 2018.
I've been using my new M1 MacBook Air for a few days now. Having NEVER used MacOS before, here are my first impressions.
Admin of Fosstodon, along with @mike. Part time geek, full time idiot.
Opinions are my own...I think.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
