No, i don’t like stickers or logos at all.

Picked out the thinkpad logo and filled the space with epoxy. Then took an angle grinder to the surface to rough it up and painted it. It still looked too nice so I painted it again and threw sand on the wet paint.

pixelfed doesn’t seem to make it easy to subscribe from mastodon or another instance, unless i’m missing something

Pixelfed federates with Mastodon and Pleroma unless federation is off.

You have to search it in mastodon, right? like they don’t have a subscribe button like peertube channels?

Yes, you have to search it if you come from other instance.

Just copy-paste the URL of the profile in the Pleroma/Mastodon search bar and use to work if you dont want to write the username and server manually.

I can ensure that it works in Pleroma but not sure at all about Mastodon. However, I think it should be.

My first laptop was covered in stickers. I’d put stickers from conferences I really enjoyed and stickers for frameworks and languages I felt comfortable working with, and stickers for causes I cared about. It was a 2012 MacBook Pro, and I ran than thing until there was just no saving it. The stickers worked great as advertisement in the pre-pandemic world, and they got me several jobs and great connections.

I got my newest laptop maybe a year and a half ago now. Hard to find the motivation to cover it in stickers without going out and about to grab them, but I think psychologically it would be good to do it for myself anyways

I didn’t have a home office or anything at the time, so I did a lot of my work in coffee shops, cafe’s, pubs etc. Going to coffee and code nights on top of all that meant I was drinking a lot of coffee (too much, probably) and had my laptop out in public eyes most of the time. Sometimes you get lucky and the stickers end up being a conversation starter for someone looking to hire or who needed help with a project. More reasonably, popping open that bad boy and flashing the stickers during an interview was always a good strategy. Some people would recognize the conferences I went to via stickers, and others took note of the languages and frameworks stickers and were pleased with that. More than a few times they would just skip over most of the interview and I’d get the job

Interesting! Was it more tech stack orientated stickers? Or was it just a conversation starter sort of thing?

definitely stack oriented. Don’t really put non-tech stickers on my laptop unless they happen to be really cool looking. as a personal rule of thumb, I never put any stickers for frameworks, libraries or w/e that I haven’t worked with extensively

No stickers. ThinkPad and its red LED is enough.

I don’t hate stickers, but I prefer seeing my laptop vanilla, since I think it’s a rather beautiful model.

I love stickers, I think they’re fun. I’ve got a “Google jury nullification,” a couple of tiny “Ski the East” stickers that I found in a dumpster, a “Darn Tough Vermont” (they make really good wool socks and have a big sale every autumn), a sticker for a tabletop gaming store I used to frequent, and a “Care not Cops” sticker over the Dell logo.

I used too have a bunch of them until I got a new laptop which looks too nice for stickers.
I put stickers on my guitar case instead

Vans of the Wall, Destroy Surveillance, a “Hambi bleibt” sticker for advocating that german coal giant RWE does not to cut down more trees and a carrhart sticker

I don’t have stickers. I prefer my technology functional rather than pretty for one, and two, if the stickers get damaged from getting rubbed or scraped, they can become sticky, which is annoying.

On older laptop some programming language stickers. On a new one a rainbow paw and an oversized Arch Linux sticker

I like Linkin Park logo, well their music too, but I don’t really like stickers on devices. So I have it as ASCII art for my neofetch
