Outside of work I only really use it for where there’s just to much to say in a text or has information that might be referenced more than once.

Other than that it’s basically just a glorified notification system.

Owncast would be a perfect compliment to platforms like Peertube.

Repairable and upgradable laptops are cool. Don’t get me wrong. However buying a used laptop is better for the environment.

Neovim and VSCodium for most of my coding. Gedit for quick disposable notes.

vi on most of my clients servers cause that’s just what there is.

I think it has taken off. I know more real life peoples on mastodon that I did a year ago. It’s like a nice little opt-out of surveillance capitalism.

It’s starting to feel overdue.

In video ads aren’t bad. A lot of creators are adding chapters showing where the ads are.

You do need a domain. The performance is really good because only you and your team are connected.

There are one click deployments on most vps servers. I loaded one up to try it out on Vultr and was running in less than 5 minutes.

I rent and I’m quite happy with it. If anything goes wrong I shoot an email to my property manager and they fix it. Eventually I might look into buying if I ever move out of the greater LA area.

Finally having motion blur under Eevee is a huge update.

Hey, that’s me!

Snoop Dogg.

I might check that out. I just assumed that link was to the defunct GUI app.

Setup a free Deezer account and install Deemix. It’s a commandline application but it works great.

deemix -b flac https://www.deezer.com/en/album/11244086

The application is constantly updated and I’ve been using it for a while flawlessly.

After Windows 2000 reached EOL I was not happy with the idea of going to XP. I wanted something that was server rock solid like 2k was. Enter Mandrake Linux. The Free Software philosophy struck a nerve. Since then I’ve been a true Linux fan. I’ve only been working in Tech for the last 7 years though. I’m a web designer not a programmer.

Lollypop has been my goto for a hot minute. Sometimes I’ll use cmus in a tmux session if I want to just load up some songs and hide the player.

I don’t recommend buying pre-installed laptops. Instead, buy business class hardware. Get them used or refurbished. You’ll save a ton of money and they’ll be just as powerfull if you get a model only about 3 years behind. Most business laptops have damn good Linux support out of the box.

As for keyboard shortcuts, it’s Linux, you can customize anything.
