Ug, mornings. I'm having one of those where I've read the same corporate speak email seven times and I still can't quite figure out what they're trying to say. I need more coffee.

Listening to my son in his Zoom class this morning talking to his teacher:

Son: The answer is "this" (not really what he said)
Teacher: <<Something I can't hear>>.
Son: I don't know if it's correct cause I'm kinda lazy.

Funny coincidence. I have two different phones on order, and both sent me shipping notices today. One, the new Pixel 5 to replace my aging 2 XL. This way, under the watchful eye of big brother I can do my work stuff from a mobile device. The other, the newest Pinephone, which I'm looking forward to trying out quite a bit, but I know my corporate IT department would scoff at and never in a hundred years allow on their network.

Would be great if @nextcloud had an Android calendar app

What do you recommend for now @fosstodon ?

Just had a talk with my sister trying to convince her to use Nextcloud for our family calendar
Ease of use for non tech savvy people is something we have to make progress on in order for FLOSS to reach the masses

She told me "had to install the DAV thing, didn't understand a s***"

But we carry on 💪

Btw, i love

I'm downloading 33 right now. I'm embarrassed to admit that the last time I grabbed a Fedora image, it was 14.

Trying to genealogy across the pond is kind of annoying.

I'm running Kubuntu 20.10 now. This morning I was running UbuntuDDE. One "sudo do-release-upgrade -d" later, and what the heck just happened???!?

Day 91 of the Series:

I tried Mycroft on my PineTab. There's lots of work to be done before this is a workable solution, but it seems like a match made in Heaven.

I've finally "pulled the plug" on Twitter completely- account deleted. I am looking for some "migration advice" from others who have fully switched.

My twitter followers were basically in 3 seperate communities. Techies, Gamers, Social.
I want to find people the "right home"

FOSStodon is superb for tech stuff, but this only accounts for 1/3 of people.

Can anyone recommend a "social" instance of mastodon, ideally UK based

Also, are there any instances that are focused around Video gaming?

Hello, I'm a math major currently exploring computer science. I am interested in and

I'm still a bit confused about Mastodon, but I hope to figure it out in due time

🐘 If you tried Mastodon and you "got bored" quickly, you were using it wrong.

Here's how to fix it:

I think @cfenollosa makes some really good points here, and I couldn't agree more about his thoughts regarding the local timeline. I'm incredibly proud of the community that we've built up here on .

Hopefully this is it, but I'm guessing they're going to pop up again like a monster in a horror movie.

I saw @celia post this earlier, but it is really a cool idea. This is a search engine for PERSONAL sites. Definitely worth checking out.
