@Anachron I just spend 8 days in one of the most picturesque places on the globe, and I'm not sure one of the pictures I took is worthy. I felt pretty good about them at the time though.

@Anachron The crazy thing is, I'm not sure if some of these shots that are so amazing and look spontaneous are ACTUALLY spontaneous, or whether the person taking them worked really hard to appear as if they were just in the right place at the right time. A friend of mine loves doing time lapse photography and I know she does hundreds or thousands of shots for every one she uses. She also does lots of work and research to setup her shots. I just take pictures of stuff I think looks cool.

Man, I love @pixelfed, but it's seriously bad for my self-esteem. Every time I feel like I might not be half bad at that whole "
"photography" thing, I just browse the timeline and realize just how talented people out there are. I'm "good" at photography like a first grader is a "good" artist.

@adamsdesk It was. Really nice to get away from everything for a week.

What is the general thought on airplane seat reclining? I realize that this is a super first world problem, but after just getting off a 5+ hour flight it's on my mind. I'm a fairly decently sized guy. 6'1 and 250+. As soon as allowed, the slightly built young woman who was sitting in front of me reclined her seat all the way back, putting the back of her head about 6" from my face. She then spent most of the flight leaning forward to see the TV screen on the back of the seat in front of her.

@raineer Well, not to minimize things, but as far as I've been able to figure out, this only impacts the DDG browser, not the search engine. If you're using an alternate browser (I use Vivaldi), then I THINK this is a non-issue for you..

@theavidhorizon Personally, I'd go @system76 because I'm a fan of and not of , but if you're a macOS guy the MacBook is probably fine. I hear it's got great battery life.

@techaddressed The only one I've played is Hacknet. It's fun, and I'd recommend it if you haven't played. It can get a little too close to work depending on your job though.

I need help from the :
At the beginning of this year I discovered a mastodon account (on a different FOSS instance) called "Freed Creative", they also owned a channel with the same name and uploaded awesome tutorials.
I noticed NewPipe complaining about not being able to find the account, like 2 weeks ago. So I did a quick mastodon search but it only returned @freedcreative@tilvids.com and @freedcreative@peertube.social .
Does anyone know what happened to the account?

@mcrute Seems like you pulled it off! Congrats and welcome!

@tulpa Well, there's a lot of crossover in people interested in technology and space. Also, regarding Mars in particular, the Ingenuity helicopter is driven by Linux based systems, and it's success has been a real feather in the cap of the open source movement.
