You can tell that big tech eats their users due to their starving when you are not around.
Twitter sends me an email about how it needs my attention. Pardon, that I "have [notifications] on Twitter". And I bet you that the only notification I have there is this stupid "in case you missed it" notification that you get when you don't surf twitter X hours a day.
Anyway, I enjoy the fediverse a lot more :) thank you people!

My son (13) has been using lockdown to improve his CS:GO and Rocket League skills. He makes little montages of clips and puts them on YouTube. I'm impressed given he edits them on his school provided iPad! Give him a sub if you like that kind of thing. ❤️
https://obsidian.md is rocking my world.
Plain markdown files.
Point it at a directory in Nextcloud for sync.
Got it on Mac, PC and Linux and stoked to play with it.
Even has a daily notes feature.
I may be in love.
Hi everyone, I'm off the grind, and that also means I'm off the dole. I'm running out of money, and I'm looking for a job.
If anyone needs a sysadmin with 6 years of professional and 18 years of hobbyist experience, please send me a DM.
My toolset includes (but is not limited to) the following:
- MySQL / MariaDB
- QEMU / KVM
- Proxmox VE
- BIND (named)
- Quagga/Bird (limited, but still)
- Nagios (nrpe, nsca)
I'm open to learning new stuff.
Please repost if nothing else!
My beloved Parcellite doesn't seem to work anymore. (And hasn't updated since 2017.)
Anyone have a good recommendation for a simple Ubuntu clipboard manager?
Looking for something I can invoke with a keyboard shortcut and select one of the last X things I saved to the clipboard.
Currently in the process of recording interviews for a new podcast about the people in science, about the human aspect of academia, the joy, successes and hardships of doing a #PhD, a #postdoc, making a career in research. Are you currently doing a PhD? A postdoc? A master student looking into entering academia and uncertain of what to expect? And you have opinions on academia and a story to share? Or know anyone? DM me, I'd like to hear your story.
