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.

Is there a selfhosted solution out there?
I just want activesync to work with autodiscover

The Thurston Classic in Meadville, PA shows off hot air balloons. That night introduced the balloons along with lighting them up to the music. Songs included "Happy", "Burning Love", and "Born in the USA".

Unfortunately, that weekend was a bust. Even though it had great spectator weather, the wind canceled further events.

Happy Father's Day

Today is also , a new federal holiday in the United States. It began as a state holiday in Texas. It marks the end of the American Civil War when the Trans-Mississippi Confederacy surrendered to the US in Galveston, Texas. Many US laws took effect, namely the Emancipation Proclamation which freed slaves. Many African Americans celebrate it, as it signifies their freedom from slavery.

In OpenStreetMap, the city/county/local highway networks proposal was overwhelmingly approved with 👍17, 👎0.

I'm so glad. It will help out US and Canadian (yes, I'm looking at you Gardiner and the DVP) mapping.

Why is it windy for no reason on a day when hot air balloons are scheduled to race?

How do you pronounce GNOME? (the desktop environment)

Would you use Linux if it was proprietary?

Air conditioner manufacturers have conspired to commit horizontal discrimination against windows.

My a/c unit won't fit in this horizontal window out of the box. Time to start modifying things.

#OpenStreetMap has one tile rendering server for all of USA, and that server can no longer keep up with peak US traffic.

If you, or your company,are interested in hosting a rendering node in the US (or elsewhere), please contact us.

I made the plunge and went from Manjaro Budgie to Ubuntu Budgie 22.04 LTS.

Ubuntu does a better job with the Budgie applets. Recent Manjaro GTK/GNOME bugs are gone too. However, the screen is tinted red from using a specific kernel that I was able to easily change in Manjaro. Changing kernels in Ubuntu is a pain.

Hey fellow fediverse users! Does somebody know a good online tool for scientific surveys? If possible, free of charge. My girlfriend needs this for her master thesis. Please RT 😎
