Search protonmail on mastodon and get switter overload... thought I would see if they have a presence here and instead was ambushed by a barrage of bare bottoms.
Saw this on twitter, it's pointless but an entertaining read..
When I was younger I wanted to be a cowboy so badly...but there was no money in it and I did the responsible thing.. these days I think, maybe there would of been more money in that cowboy thing...
Why don’t keyboards like this come on laptops anymore?
So then I thought.. well computer access could be limited, I could have to depend on mobile a lot. So wouldn't web based apps better? Then I can get on any computer or mobile available and access my stuff, whether it is mine, another persons, or in a cafe of sorts.
So I've been thinking about apps. By default I have been a fan of the native desktop app. I thought it should be the way to go. Then I had a conversation with my wife about where we may be in the next few years, living that is. And there was talk of somewhere in the third world possibly.
Not to get political, but I’m trying to figure out if I should be laughing or not... https://www.cnn.com/2018/08/04/politics/steven-seagal-russia-special-representative/index.html
Soundcloud -> @funkwhale
MeetUp -> @GetTogetherComm
LinkedIn -> @cloutstream
Google Calendar -> @calendar_social
Anything missing from the list? What else is needed?
So I have come to the realization that I don't have the time or the attention span to learn programming. Of course I can learn a little bit in a hobby sort of way. But I don't think I will ever make a living at it. I think I make a better promoter of OpenSource projects than creator.
Welp, it's happening: I'm going full-time at @elementary! 🎉 https://medium.com/@cassidyjames/a-new-chapter-af85f4e64179
@timapple Oh, fair enough. I agree that that's not okay. I think those people just misunderstand the idea of "free" software.
I forget who said it, but I heard something like "Discouraging developers from charging for their work only helps big players like Google and Microsoft". If it's open-source those larger companies can get the code anyway, but a lot of people are okay with those companies charging money for services and software, but a lot less are okay with smallers devs doing the same
In this month’s #AppCenterSpotlight we take a look at Tootle: a lightning fast client for Mastodon: https://medium.com/elementaryos/appcenter-spotlight-tootle-78a60f796458
Following a thread on twitter by @danrabbit . I really can't fathom why our community is so against funding projects or paying for software. It's not like they are pooping this stuff with butterflies. It's hard work, people deserve to get paid if they ask. People need to stop being so entitled.
Hey everyone, it’s my birthday today and I have just one birthday wish: help fund some Open Source Software you love today.
If every elementary OS user bought just one app for $1 today, it would put more than double our annual income into the hands of indie developers.
Your small contributions matter and make a difference! :)
