Hello Fediverse ๐Ÿ–๏ธ
My name is Murteza.

I started my FOSS journey with :tux: when I couldn't afford :windows: license. I have been using Linux for 3 years now.

Came for the price tag, stayed for the quality - @murtezayesil ๐Ÿ˜

I learned many things from people in FOSS community.
Importance of privacy
Repurposing old hardware
Advantages of decentralized platforms
& more


I'm not new here. I didn't introduce myself properly before, so I decided to do it for 1000th toot special ๐ŸŽ‰

I created a temporary local account on my brother's Windows machine. It allowed a local account at first but trying to sign in to it at a later date prompts me to login with a Microsoft account. Even if I had a Microsoft account I wouldn't want to login because it is my brother's machine. I see no reason to setup sync for my wallpaper.

Only way to bypass is to click "Back" and select "Skip for now". I wonder how many times I will be allowed to skip before being forced.

Which e-commerce platform do you recommend for a clothing store?

If you want to share a Mastodon post with someone outside Mastodon, there are two methods: linking or embedding.

You can link to a Mastodon post by clicking "..." below it and selecting "copy link to post". This will put a public link to the post into your clipboard so you can share this elsewhere.

You can embed a Mastodon post in a website by clicking "..." below it and selecting "embed". Copy the embedding code and paste it into your website's page code.

You can also share Mastodon profile pages by clicking on the profile's picture. This will open a public version of the profile in a new window, copy its address to get a shareable profile link.

Reminder, podcasts are just an rss feed with links to audio files.

Not an app. Not some walled ecosystem.

This #aprilfoolsday I decided to recontinue my exercise resolution. 

Even though I cannot do 50 pushups at once like I initially planned, I can finish a 7 minute workout with ease. This is a good development since last year's April fools day considering I wasn't able to do 10 pushups and I can do 25 now.

Why do people choose GNU/Linux? What is the main reason for choosing GNU/Linux?

Introducing seeking-maintainers.net! ๐ŸŽ‰

A few days ago, @kev asked the community for help maintaining his side-project, 512kb.club. This got me thinking.

There are loads of maintainers out there feeling burnt out, but they can't abandon their project since people are depending on the project to be maintained.

In an effort to combat this, I built a website that lists projects looking for new maintainers. It's still quite empty and has some rough edges, so any feedback is very welcome.
