Hey all! I'm moving my account to a new one! It will be the same old stuff, but with a new username. @gortbrown is the new handle!

This might be a bit of a dumb question, but is it possible to change your username on Mastodon?

So, my laptop never usually plays nice with Linux. The wifi card didn't work without special some modules, and the function keys and keyboard backlight never worked. But I just installed Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix, and everything just... Worked! This is the first time in almost 2 years that I've had a laptop that just works with Linux without having to do some post-installation work!

It always baffles me how stupid stuff advertised on Snapchat is. For example: an $85 tube to help you breathe in a more relaxing way.

I just installed PostmarketOS on my PinePhone and it FLIES compared to any other Phosh distro I've used!

I find it ridiculous how all Facebook can say about this data leak is that "The data is from 2019, and we patched the vulnerability back in 2019." That doesn't change the fact that the data is out there, and it sure as heck doesn't mean they can just sweep it under the rug.

For the first time ever, someone saw my mask and asked "Is that the Linux penguin?" instead of "Yo, is that from Club Penguin?" 😂

Just downloaded gtk.css for phosh to get lock screen and app drawer icons, and iim liking it! I kinda wish phosh just had wallpapers here in the first place

You know what? I'm tired. I won't engage on Stallman anymore. I used to love this place, and that rift he created is consuming slowly the entire community.
I said my piece many times, and I won't change a thing, so I'm done.
Let's go back to talking about computers, science, philosophy and games. :)

I've been messing around with the PinePhone's camera, and for a $150 phone, the pictures actually aren't that bad! I wouldn't use it to replace my Pixel's camera, but I wouldn't be disappointed if I used it for normal pics and such! And shout out to @martijnbraam for his awesome work on Megapixels!

Ok, so I just installed Manjaro with Gnome 40 (my laptop didn't like Fedora for some reason) and noticed that Firefox looks WAY different. Has anyone else's Firefox looked like this?

Happy (very early) !

I just installed Fedora 34 on my laptop and I'm loving Gnome 40!

KDE recently added the Elisa music player to their F-Droid repo, and it's pretty good so far! Still kinda buggy, but its pretty cool!

Following the amazing work on a mobile friendly version of the Elisa music player, I am trying to get it to work on Android. Here are a few screenshots. Thanks Devin Lin

Do you use an RSS/Atom reader?

Boosts appreciated for sample size :)
