is still on Mastodon. Just felt like putting this here as I have not used it in a while... Just been on Edinburgh LUG to talk about as a career booster, and someone impromptu volunteered to talk on Mastodon - which reminded me to return here 😁

On the occasion of - here's something I wrote last year about how actively choosing not to succumb to workplace ranting can remove toxicity in the workplace and build better teams. And it starts with each of us.

Ahem, wth? "Ungrar, the King of Viruses, has escaped from his prison cell in Vaccine World. Maya, the Goddess of Vaccine World sends Mugimaru down to Earth to find a human to accept the powers of Vaccine World and become the Magical Nurse."

"Where is the freedom if you use Free Software but proprietary cloud services?"

@nextcloud can compete with proprietary data silos like O365, Google, Dropbox, iCloud, because they are standing on the shoulders of giants and can use all of the fantastic #FOSS innovations: With Free Software they are more then #Nextcloud. They are a big #community and together we can compete with these companies.

Great talk by @Karlitschek "How I forked my own project" at #libreplanet

Le saviez-tu ?

Parinux héberge désormais un CHATONS : Bastet, avec tout plein de services

En ces temps où @Framasoft nous invite à déframasoftiser Internet ( - merci au passage pour tout ce que vous faites !), les @ChatonsOrg sont prêts à nous accueillir, pour toujours plus de décentralisation-fédération-services de proximité respectueux de leurs utilisateurices

I expect this will not be enforceable (IANAL, etc), so long as it can be argued that transmission of data - any data - from one electronic device to another is "prior art" for the purpose of this case.

Don't waste your time, efforts, and money on patents, people. You may argue that you "spent so much in R&D on the invention," which you likely would not have had to if you shared research and built upon eachothers' research.

But hey, that's just me.

Patents seem to be, more often than not, a waste of time, and pointless generator of stress.

Today it's "Only we have the right to control getting photos off of a camera wirelessly!!"

Do you help run a federated or decentralised service in Europe -- or know someone who does? Please pass this link on. It's the application to meet politicians to discuss how the EU's copyright filters (Article 13/17) will be implemented. I worry about a backroom deal struck between Facebook/Google that excludes the next generation of open Net services: .. Please speak up!

I know I'm probably late to the party, but I'm sure it bears repeating....

Don’t get trapped by your office suite! Some software vendors are pushing users towards online subscription models – but LibreOffice is different. It's free, it doesn't require registration or yearly payments, and it gives you control over your documents:

Just finished revisiting a Ubuntu ISO customisation script I collaborated on a long time ago... Needed a custom ISO for a workshop...

It can now take a customisation script to auto-run during the process for a repeatable build, and I tested it against Ubuntu MATE 18.04

It still needs quite a bit of cleanup though.... maybe I'll properly revisit it during my holiday...

nominations. highlighted as a "villain" for being a threat to freedom of expression. nominated as a "villain" for trying to protect freedom of expression. Makes total sense.

Shameless plug / reannounce. It was hard getting a new venue, and I'm not sure I'm done hunting yet... our previous meetups exceeded attendance expectations... and the capacity of the wee room we had...


Next up at EdLUG: "Where's my open smartphone?" 2nd of July at Akva

So I just discovered that to get pre-built for Windows... you need to go to Red Hat 🙂
