Following a discussion here on Fosstodon I want to upload my video content on PeerTube (alongside YouTube for the moment). I have lots of tutorials on FOSS 3DCAD programs. My problem now is how do I choose a good instance. What criteria I look for?

Also I noticed that a search on several instances appears to be local only. The same search gives different results on different instances. Isn't the whole point that all PeerTube instances are federated and should provide the same result?

His girlfriend sent me some shots... I figured I'd add this one. Seemed fitting.

What are your go-to tools when looking for FOSS alternatives to proprietary software?

I normally use alternativeto.net/ but I'm trying to look for more.

Still feeling fairly bummed about the suicide of my high school friend.

I understand, as he had spent years with pain that wouldn't go away.

I don't think that the feeling of loss that I'm experiencing will lessen any time soon.

So, has anyone ever played with Linspier?

It occurs to me that I've never heard of successful malware delivery on Android that didn't come hidden in an app, i.e. a trojan. Does anyone know of any cases like a malicious website directly exploiting a device?

As for the real kid listed on the milk carton, I hope he was found.

Once upon a time, I had a really cool and fun boss. - He loved me so much that he put me on a milk carton when they couldn't get a hold of me as fast as they thought the should have.
- Trust me, there weren't a lot of places to use a phone booth on the mountain roads IF, IF! one Did get a page on their pager.

Oh man.... Those were the days... ๐Ÿ“Ÿ

Oh My Word. I'm so surprised as to how well scanning an old Polaroid can actually bring the picture back to life, or make sense out of it.
I couldn't figure out what this picture was, and now. Viloa! - I'm quite please to have found it.

I have no idea why I thought it was a good idea to take a picture of a black motorcycle in the dark.

I'm going to blame it on the alcohol intake.

Circa 1983 as far as I can tell.

A Couple of S.O.B.s..... Probably yelling the lyrics to Hair of the Dog... ๐ŸŽธ ๐ŸŽค

R.I.P. Don....
You're missed.

This is the single greatest triumph of technology over itself, boost if you agree.
