@pixelfed Earlier today I posted a series of 3 photos and one is upside down. Quick question - is there a way to rotate images on the platform?

I've been using Linux exclusively on my laptops since 2015. So far I've had Ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04 and Linux Mint 18.3 on my main machine.

Over the last few days I've been looking into Debian 10. I realise the sofywarr packages within Debian are 'older' than some, but Debian 10 has newer versions of the packages I'm using on Mint 18.3, so I'm thinking about switching. Would love to hear others thoughts for and against Debian 10?

I've never been a big computer game player, but two of my favourite computer games when I was a kid were 'Escape from Rungistan' and 'Police Quest'. I've done a Start Page and Duck Duck search, but can't find Linux versions. Does anyone know if either or both games have Linux editions?

Just discovered CryptPad via the FLOSS Weekly podcast. Basically, Google docs without privacy concerns.

CryptPad in their own words:

"CryptPad is a private-by-design alternative to popular office tools and cloud services. All the content stored on CryptPad is encrypted before being sent, which means nobody can access your data unless you give them the keys (not even us)."

It's also Free software.

Better still CryptPad is on the Fediverse:
