Pulled the trigger on a Lenovo p53. Hopefully arrives in a week. Now to figure out what distro to install... Stick with Linux Mint (what I've run for several years) or try something new. Apparently the touchpad, wifi and brightness controls likely require a 19.10 Ubuntu variant or making sure whatever I pick gets updated to a 5.3 kernel (yes apparently hardware support hurdles are still a thing).
Was also eyeing an expensive MSI laptop... but I would rather buy something that comes with Linux and Win10 is the add on rather than vice versa.
Resting after a little winter trek and fooling around with #Snapseed.
Phase 1: Eager for a challenge.
Phase 2: So careful not to let it come apart so I can marvel at its beauty.
Phase 3: Realize it's going to be super tricky to even get it apart.
Phase 4: Super worried about actually succeeding one day in getting it apart.
Phase 5: This might be an awesome desk trinket. :-)
@rfquerin is that all or is there more to come? If that's all, why not github pages?
Truthfully, I'd like to sit down and have @pla explain to me (a dummy) what he's actually doing. I can't figure out if it's clever or a helluva lotta work. :-)
I like the idea of #pixelfed but I'm not sure it provides what I want. Newbie questions:
1. Does the instance I pick determine the quality of experience I get? (ie. uptime, glitches etc.)
2. If I choose to switch instances do I lose what I've done and have to start all over?
I realize it works similarly to mastadon instances but isn't quite the same. Maybe I should stick to hosting my photos somewhere else for now.
After 13 years I finally dropped my webhost (unsurprisingly, cancelling was way more complicated that it needed to be). So I switched to someone else. Not sure what I'm going to do with it, but here's to new beginnings. 😃 https://rfquerin.org/
