So you demand upload filters? I'll happily comply and will write one for my-own-little-startup.

Dug out my "old" ThinkPad X220 a while back. Upgraded it from #Ubuntu 14.04 to 16.04, then this week I bumped to 18.04 then 18.10 then today nudged it to 19.04. I love how well the upgrade system of Ubuntu works. No loss of data, no need for re-installs, no bother. Happy laptop.

The project's Mastodon account is here:
Federation is still being worked on, but you can already follow Prismo users and comment on their posts from elsewhere on the Fediverse.
For example, here's the lead developer's Prismo account:

I've tooted while 3D printing this lampshade last week - and as promised, here is a photo of it in "action".
Still a bit of stringing to clean up, but if I may say so myself, this looks rather stunning!
ESP8266-powered with an HTTP API to remotely control it and make it light up to indicate events 😊
Like, seriously, who has time for this
