My neighbors wanted to throw away a Desktop PC in perfect condition, a Packard Bell iMedia S1800 with Windows 10. Their daughter complained it was too slow. I installed #Ubuntu MATE giving the PC a new life and didn’t let it become #ewaste.

Firefox, your priorities are wrong.
Remove the old RSS code, make it new. Block third-party cookies.

It’s been a week or so, guess I’ll do an #introduction
I am a dad, solo sysadmin/it manager, and part time infosec specialist (if you guessed how, you’d probably be right). Big fan of linux/unix for the past 12 years or so, but have been tinkering with computers, trying to break things, and lurking the interwebs since the early 90s.
Over the last couple years I’ve become a more outspoken privacy advocate, have done a few trainings, written a few things.
Really enjoying this community.
Looking for some suggestions, I have issues with both of my arms/hands and cannot type at times. I just moved over to Fedora from Debian and I'm looking for voice rec & control software or other ideas if you have them. Running KDE as my desktop, wouldn't think it would make a difference but who knows. Thanks!
