Just voted in the European #elections! Please remember to do the same (on the right day 🙂)
Found this Firefox userChrome.css theme. Looks a lot better than the default theme in my opinion!

I needed to look at something else for a while, so I'm trying Linux on the desktop. How's it been going?
Are you not feeling motivated to go outside for a healthy walk? How about downloading the application StreetComplete from @fdroidorg and start helping out OpenStreetMap by adding missing data about the places around you!
I started today and it made my daily walks a lot more fun! It also motivates me to walk even more and visit new places that I wouldn't visit otherwise. :)
I decided to create a small survey to ask a few non-personal questions about Fediverse users, their opinions on its various platforms, and their thoughts on non-Fediverse networks, such as Facebook and Twitter.
The survey is oriented at people who currently use the Fediverse, and does not provide any way of saying that you do not currently use it.
If you’d like to participate in the survey, you can do so here. It opens at midnight on the 13th of May at midnight AEST (12th of May, 2pm UTC), and closes one month later on the 13th of June. I’ll be posting the results every now and then until it closes.
Please answer honestly, and send it to your friends if you’d like them to participate too! :mlem:Related
Wow. On the one hand it seems like just yesterday, but on the other it feels like a *lot* has happened since then.
Thank you for all the suggestions and feedback, and thank you to those who make #Alternatives that give us back our privacy. You are all heroes 👍

I do find the outdated packages that come with Ubuntu based distros very annoying though.
KDE Neon has repos for the newest KDE versions, but I manually had to add repos to get the latest graphic drivers, nvim didn't run with my plugins because it was too old and I had to install a seperate Ruby version manager to get the latest version of Ruby (and get my Rails application working again).

In my search I've tried other distros such as Manjaro because they also had an attractive driver manager, but I couldn't even boot their KDE iso and the architect variant also failed various times.
Went with KDE Neon because it has minimal bloat, has very good defaults and 'just works' in general. It's a little more reliable than Arch, using it for school a lot so that's important.
I think I've finally found an alright distro without messing too much with NVIDIA Optimus. I'm on KDE Neon right now, enjoying it a lot but it's a little getting used to coming from the tiling window managers.
Only thing I had to do to set up Optimus was enable a graphics driver PPA, install a driver manager and click to install the latest driver. I also installed 'prime-indicator' for a nice tray icon.
We've got a pad-in-progress here. If you see a game you want to play, add your name below it. If you don't see a game you want to play, add it in alphabetical order and add your name below it 😁
I've been thinking. It would be cool to do like a #Fediverse #WANParty or something. I've got a Mumble server that's always on and doesn't require registration so we can do voice chat there. Depending on how many people are interested, we could even have multiple groups playing multiple games in different channels
Do you feel like gaming with a bunch of strangers from the Fediverse? 😁
If you don't want to give Mozilla more information about you than they really need, you don't have to enable the Studies for the certificate fix. Below is a direct link to what they install.
Here are a few links about it:
