@SolusProject hey, noticed you guys deprecated from your repos - is this permanent? I see that apparently it was because it temporarily blocked an ffmpeg update?

I use makemkv's libmm.so as a libaacs replacement for bluray decryption/playback through kodi, so it is an important component of a Solus Media PC

With the shenanigans the federated timeline is going to have so much more

Someone might look at all the data hacks and misplaced data scandals that keep happening and say 'Companies just don't know how to secure data'.

Bear in mind that these same companies mostly just lose *customer* data. How many 'trade secrets' have been accidentally published online? Not many.

The fact is, companies care about their own data. They definitely don't care about yours.

*looks at the federated feed for the first time in ages... Aaand it's full of American politics.

Yep, mastodon is becoming Twitter

👍🏾 good stuff

Got myself a 6 - was always sceptical of these (and also the fact they dont sell them here, so I had to import one), but am pleasantly surprised.

Truly a spiritual successor to the older Nexus phones, and the best bang you can get for your android dollar.

Please Boost!!!!

For all you admins out there can you please accept to Federate with @blender since the conference there's been an upgrade and reboot of their presence.

Unfortunately instance admins need to re-accept before the videos get spread.

I've consistently used Fedora KDE as my distro for the 5 years or more. Had some issues on my Home Theatre PC when I did the Fedora 29 update (not their fault, mostly packages I need for multimedia out of the RPMFusion repos), so I moved it over to and, damn! I am very impressed.

I'd used openSUSE here and there in the past for short stints, and we have some SLES servers at work. What an impressive experience. Gonna have to consider moving my main desktop over to it.

I am officially in Browser Hell - I have tried so many browsers lately that I find myself using any of them at random: , , , , ! I can't say I am happy with any of them

Minimalism in UI is only skin-deep in any case where it attempts to hide inherent functional task complexity. It's how we got so many hamburger menus, junk drawers, undiscoverable icons with no labels, and the obfuscation of file systems where it'd clearly have been useful.

Interesting feature of the youtube app. If you have (the remote app) installed you can essentially "chromecast" from newpipe to your Kodi media center.

I just spooled up a Prosody XMPP server, because why not. Easiest two minutes ever. Even pulls in my existing let's encrypt certs

I don't even know anyone else personally who uses xmpp... sigh

Them: what do you do on a Saturday night?
Me: Spool up servers I really have no use for... 😕

apparently matching a wall port label to a patch panel label is too difficult a task for our helpdesk

I had not used @kde for around one year but I have decided to give it a try these days on my . And I must say that I am really impressed. Thanks for such great work!
