Pinned toot

I am done capitalizing i in the middle of sentences. If it's at the beginning i will. Otherwise it's a waste of a keystroke...

Pinned toot

My first official toot.

I come to Mastodon as an escape from facebook. I will try to cut it out 100%. Maybe some friends will follow. I'll post all sorts of things some personal some tech/linux related.

Been a linux user for about 15 years left windows behind.(as much as possible)

I run Arch currently but have used Gentoo,Funtoo,Ubuntu and others.

Don't hesitate to ask questions. I know little on the programing side but am trying to learn some of that as well.

Thanks for reading.

If anyone reading this is looking for an alternative RSS feed reader/service at no cost I am willing to setup some of you on my tt-rss instance. The VPS I have should be able to handle a decent number of users.

Also I would be willing to give a few of you some space on my Nextcloud instance as well. Like 10 or so users 10gb each.

I realize not everyone can afford to self host or wants to for that matter so I'm offering what I can. Just send me a PM here and we'll settle things.

Requesting #pinephone users to vote. Boosts appreciated.

What do you reckon is a realistic timeline for the phone to be "mainstream ready"?

Friday!
I hope that you had a great week, and that your weekend is going to be great too!

Listening to this month's #mmbc album. It's well outside of my normal music realm but i'm giving it a good chance.

Go pick up the album

Then join us in the xmpp room for the chat around the end of the month

Has anyone here used PJON? It sounds like pretty damn cool tech, from the website at least.

I commissioned a print of my dog Baxter.

I call it Baxter the Great!

How can you quickly tell whether an application is free software or nonfree?

Well, one way is to check what the software is licensed under!

Roughly, a license can tell what users can and can't do.

The recommended free licenses are the GNU General Public License, version 3 (GPLv3) or the GNU Affero General Public License, version 3 because they are copyleft licenses. We will get into copyleft later.

The list of free licenses are here: gnu.org/licenses/license-list.

Get one with a green line!

So #FreeBSD question.

How would i update/upgrade the install on my RasbPI Model B?

The freebsd-update command does not work and the SRC tree/archive is not available. At least not at on the freebsd ftp site...

I haven't posted any of my attempts at art recently, but today I've created this shredded Minotaur boi using the FOSS vector tools Dotgrid and Inkscape!

Got the first bits of UI for user-facing controls working in Megapixels. Also figured out how to get the gain/shutter information from v4l2 while the camera is in auto mode.

The joys of being the Sysadmin at a small company. Even on your days off you'll most likely need to work.
