I took a break from my gaming addiction today to drink booze and watch a great live jazz band. Afterwards, at home, I continued to fight the urge by playing guitar for over an hour. Then, just when I was ready to give in, a friend hit me up for a little code mentorship which turned into a 3 hour session. I learned a thing or two from him too!
Listener Yannick, co-host of Star Trek fan podcast "Tea, Earl Grey, Hot" created this Linux For Everyone combadge, and I love it so much it gave me chills.
It's DEFINITELY the new avatar, and I'm going to look into mass-printing these suckers!
(By the way, I'll be guest-hosting their next episode)
#libreoffice is really letting me down today and I'm as close to getting shit from my coworkers about it as it gets(they're fairly understanding to my preferences). Google Sheets isn't working great, but it's at least delivering a result; while calc delivers nothing at 400% cpu usage..
Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.
I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.
Boosts gratefully appreciated.
I’m liking how people are starting to put the emoji for the district they’re using in their name.
I’m currently using Pop!_OS so have added to my name. Feel free to add your distros logo to your name so we all know what others are using.
If we don’t have your distro, please let us know and we will add it for you.
Finally finished a piece I've been wanting to write for years!
It's a capture of the key skills that security managers are constantly asking their people to do, and therefore the skills that new applicants need to be ready to do on Day 1.
Sigh, I made a rookie mistake when ordering my fiancee's new PC parts this past week. The mobo we got was the right socket type, but the chipset (X370) couldn't support 3rd gen Ryzen processors without a bios update. We just finised the return processing and our new X570 mobo will arrive Tuesday. Luckily she still has a PC to use in the meantime.
Hi, Fosstodon! This is my first toot ❤️ I'm glad to be here.
I remember trying out Mastodon a while ago (I don't remember which instance exactly), but I didn't really get to post much and I never quite understood how the system worked. This time I'm willing to put more effort into it.
Fosstodon seems really promising. I'm also craving more meaningful and respectful interaction that the one Twitter offers...
So far I'm really loving the higher character limit for posts. 😍 Yessss.
Fosstodon is a Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
