For all of the newcomers here, here is my re- post.

I'm a :linux: FOSS enthusiast who uses Budgie :budgie:, , , and single (looking for a lady). I work in IT in a retirement community.

In my spare time, I collect and read maps, go hiking, kayaking, camping, and other outdoor recreation, and play Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator. I contribute data to OpenStreetMap whenever I can.

Originally, I'm from Austin, Texas now in NW Pennsylvania.

The Twitter purge is continuing. Even left wing media is being purged now. We all knew this day would come.
It's time we spread the word and make the fediverse rise up.

The global politics are unfortunately affecting open-source audio. Not in a good way.

The developer of LSP plug-ins may soon be forced to serve in the Russian army. He's previously expressed his strong stance regarding the war and is definitely not on board.

The Linux Studio Plug-ins (LSP) suite is one of the most advanced and high quality. A real beacon in the libre audio.

If you own a -series card, how often do you find yourself using RTX ? (eg. , , etc.)

If you just want to say "fuck Nvidia" or "it's proprietary bullshit", I'd politely request you to ignore this toot.

When people say they have nothing to hide, let's reply:

* Post your passwords here
* Write down everybody you hate
* Tell the world who you voted for
* List all the videos you watched

- Medical history.
- Sensitive conversations with employers, children, spouses.
- Billing and banking information.
- Purchase information.
- Web search history.
And more...

I need privacy. Not because my actions are questionable, but because 'your' judgement and intentions are.

And it doesn't matter whether or not my communications are weighty or frivolous in nature - they are mine and only for those whom I've chosen to share them with. Not the government's, nor goog's, nor my ISP's, but mine.

Also, what is legal where I live today, may not be legal tomorrow and my discussion of it may incriminate my future self. It has happened in the past many times to others in other places.

I went camping last night and startled some deer. I was in my tent and ripped off a big fart, and I could hear some deer clumsily running into things. Then a snort echoed thru the night right after.

Do you know and listen to soundtracks or dedicated film music (I don't mean normal songs used as a soundtrack, but music composed for film/TV series/game)

Hey folks, Please patch your Windows machines as soon as you can. There's a neat wormable exploit to the IPv6 stack for Windows. That's bad. All systems use that. Can't block. Time to patch. Do it for me.

Subscriptions for software are the most evil freaking thing anyone ever came up with.

I PAID for this app. And they throw this at me. Not even going to name the app. They're all starting to do this now.

SIXTY DOLLARS if you don't want to subscribe. This was a $5 app, people.

Does anyone here have experience with @Internxt?

Hey Fediverse!

The @owncast project could really use some help! 🙏

At the moment the lead dev @gabek is having to handle an awful lot at once. The platform would be much more sustainable if there were more people on the team.

Everyone who wants to help is welcome, but of course there are some specific areas where help is especially welcome:

Please get in touch with @owncast or @gabek if you want to help out!
