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:
#foss #floss #freesoftware #freesw #opensource #tech #linux #archlinux #gnu #vim #bspwm #computerscience #cs #programming #maths #math #mathematics #physics

I need a timetrack app, I've not found a good one for me so spent one day writting my own app for timetracking: https://gitlab.gnome.org/danigm/timetrack
I dunno if it's just me but it seems like image descriptions here are at a low ebb again.
When I click on an image that's integral to the point you're making and you haven't told me what it is, that makes me feel like I've just seen everyone else walk through a door that gets slammed in my face.
I'm not mad I'm just tired.
A quick look at the #PantherX Desktop: Here we've got the Menu with global search that can dig into PDF's and other documents, Hub with all online accounts and recent messages and of course System - at the top, right - with clear connection information; supporting all modern standards, including special cases such as OpenVPN with stunnel.

hey y'all an official announcement, since i have no reason to keep it a secret, tho details will be coming later on, and not as much in the now
planning to kickstart/patreon and develop a video game, next month, relased on the final day of the month (over itch.io for those who havent contributed money)
it'll be a fast paced, bullet hell-vein platformer based on combos and skillful play, but with an emphasis on not causing a game over state, so you have room for failure
stay tuned~ (boosts okay)
PeerTube support is being worked on for NewPipe!
"Being an 'Apple person' or a 'Windows person' is a marketing gimmick, not a personality trait. Amazon is just a version of Walmart that collaborates with cops. Your community existed before Facebook. Google wasn’t always a verb. We have the ability to change these companies by the way we interact with them—but only if we want to."
Note to self, replace Android with LineageOS

Sadly, my laptop made the audio crunchy from minute 1-6:40, but it's still understandable. After that it clears up and things are smooth again. I'll shoot an updated cleaner version this weekend.
