Hi, I'm a long time Mastodon user who is moving away from mastodon dot social because it's too crowded. The main things I am interested in are:

does anyone use mailbox.org or has used mailbox.org and what was your experience? i'm looking to move away from tutanota because they don't support imap/smtp and mailbox.org looks like a good service for a reasonable price

Is it unethical to use Google Fonts? 🤔

About how long does it take for a new fediverse instance to federate properly? And is there any way to speed the process up?

Just found out Tusky and Fedilab are now censoring instances that the developers don't like.. To those developers... Who made you king that you get to decide what others visit? You have no right to control other people´s lives. Just because something offends you, that doesn't give you the right to tell us what we can't do.. I don't like SJW´s, but I do not try to silence them.. @tusky and @fedilab developers.... pull your heads out of your posteriors.

i'm sure that it's been asked before, but i'm curious again: what are people's naming schemes for your computers?

My biggest UI annoyance these days is stuff re-arranging under my finger just as I’m about to tap.

We need to avoid that more, and if we can’t, indicate UI in flux better, e.g. using progress indicators.

I recently discovered the exciting new world of mastodon, and I'll be making it my new home tooting about , tools, , and maybe even some from my day job. I look forward to exploring further!

with enough funding, lynne teaches tech will surpass linus tech tips, and i will build a 1080p monitor made up of individual 1080p screens, and LTT will mean LynneTeachesTech, and i will rest well at night

piping random scripts from the internet into bash is the worst way of installing things. imagine if there was an operating system where this was the main way of installing things, and people just googled the program name, clicked the first link, and ran an executable file with admin permissions. imagine that

steam is available on all three major operating systems: windows, macOS, and debian

Antergos was a good distro
but sadly it did carry a lot and i mean a lot of arch bugs with it that seemed to creep up extremely often

i will still miss it

but when dealing with a distro that breaks a lot it tends to require tons of time to keep going
the devs are bound to break down at some point

Hey, #Firefox-using friends—

If you lost access to your add-ons this past weekend and you tried some advice to set `xpinstall.signatures.required` to `false` in `about:config`, you should

1. install the latest update, and

2. flip that setting back to `true`.

It's important to have this setting on to help protect you against malicious extensions.

(Don't @ me about whether you personally need or want Mozilla to sign the extensions you use. Consider this toot may not be for you.)
