Anyone here have experience with the laptop? Considering it to run Linux for dev work. Also considering MBP, but like the open nature and upgradability with Framework.

If I'm lucky I may just get my website updated to version 8 just in time for this week's Drupal 9 release.

Was testing Nextcloud on a local Ubuntu server, want to move away from proprietary cloud storage. Wanted to set up shared folders to share photos with my wife, and apparently you need a 'group folders' app to do this. Tried to download in web UI, wouldn't download. Then tried manually installing via tar.gz. Extracted archive, and it broke the entire Nextcloud instance. Even once I removed the app NC was still broken. I promptly nuked the entire instance and gave up. Not ready for prime time.

I ended up going for a kit in the rapsberry pi 3b+ with Allo Boss DAC - the BossPlayer 1.2. It was pretty easy to set up, running Volumio. easily added network share from my Ubuntu server. This thing sounds pretty awesome hooked up to my tube amp stereo system!

Can anyone recommend a instance that would be appropriate for posting developer focused videos? I’m thinking conference / meetup sessions, tutorials, etc.

Upgraded to Ubuntu 18.10 to take advantage of performance improvements in GNOME 3.30, it disabled my proprietary Nvidia driver in the process, and I rebooted to a black screen. Took me several hours to get it working again. Adding ‘nomodeset’ to my grub config got xorg working in lo res mode, then was able to reinstall nvidia driver. Thought I would share in case anybody else runs into a similar issue.

GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program and GNU stands for GNU’s Not UNIX and UNIX stands for Uniplexed Information and Computing Service so the full proper name for GIMP is actually:

GNU’s Not Uniplexed Information and Computing Service Image Manipulation Program
