Really starting to like Fedora. Tried installing on a laptop and everything works out-of-the-box, even WIFI! Usually that's the one that doesn't.

Shoutout to other free software forges like @codeberg and Pagure, too

This is the Uisge Ruaidh (Red River). The glen, bridge and village all get their names from this river. The male name Roy is also an anglicisation of the Gaelic word ruadh, meaning red. Rob Roy was, apparently, a red head.

#keyoxide 2.0.0 is here and I couldn't be more excited about this one: the entire backend has been rewritten in #nodejs 🎉 this will make it much easier to develop new features and tools all using a unified backend

@jeena I have been there 3/4 times and always had a good time. My son is a bit older now and I think he might not enjoy it anymore as much as he used to. I think I hope go next year.

uspol, trump campaign lies 

#Trump milking money from small donors by touting contests that nobody ever win (or where the winner never collects the promised prize). And fraudulently promising people membership in exclusive donor clubs.

Any company accepting their ad buys should be ashamed.


@jeena Cool picture!I love going to High Chaparral, the shows are quite entertaining. Will probably give it a miss this year tho 🙁.

But assuming you already know this, you perhaps mean mastodon should show a green tick on your profile page! This will happen in the near future, as it requires some big changes to the backend which I'm working on currently

Has anyone bumped in to any concrete numbers over the environment impact of our usage of suboptimal software, eg js+web tech instead of native desktop apps, the power usage of crypto currencies, the cost of constantly brute forcing problems instead of elegant solutions?

Any data is much appreciated - it trying to write something intelligent about this.
