Pixelfed will be a year old in a few days.

I'm a high school dropout that has never taken any CS or computer classes.

Web development is just a hobby of mine, I work in the auto industry.

I'm so proud of this project, I never would have imagined that I could make something like this.

Thank you for helping me realize credentialism isn't so important as you think. ❤️ :pixelfed:

I apologize for my absence the last little bit. Between a job change and mental health quicksand, I have been quite removed even from myself.

Part of the fog is clearing and I am starting a new action plan for the better me and the better we.

Just updated profile for the . Hard to limit the list though.

folks, I got a deep tissue massage ball and let me tell ya, folks, listen, believe me,

Wow 😲

Taking a page for @hund this evening. Been playing around with Pinafore under QuteBrowser. I am almost nearly 100% satisfied. The only issue I have right now is HiDPI. Fonts for the browser are great, but for the actual rendering of the pages are small. I have to zoom 200%. Will have to research it more.

@digitalgyoza Welcome home. I think you will like the neighborhood. I do.

@pixelfed Can we get it set to "on" by default, pretty please? 🙂 Acessibility nudges by default would really help drive adoption rates.

Accessibility is important.

Instance admins will be able to enforce media descriptions! #accessibility #pixelfed

@hund @architect And about the old comment, I first started using Linux in 1996. My version desktop environment was FVM95 and then Windowmaker.

@hund @architect The Pentium II was back in 2001ish. Ubuntu ended up replacing it. Before then it was Linux Mandrake (before Mandriva) and RedHat.

Kwin is great for a stacking window manager and the ability to set custom application/window settings makes it very powerful. i3 for me is faster to navigate and a few setups I want to implement, I believe I would just like to be able to export the tree and have it loaded back when I log in so that everything is ready and instantly in order to get work done.

@hund @architect i3 has been the best for me in terms of flow but there is something to be said for the cohesiveness of Plasma. I have not yet used polybar.. Even if it is wasted space, gaps help me focus. I was going to start a project called Argon that would be combine i3 with Plasma using sane defaults and let it evolve with Sway as Wayland became norm.

Virtual machines, yes.

Oh, and the last time I built Gentoo was on a Pentium II.

@hund @architect I am getting a little itchy to switch up my laptop install again. Probably closer to the Arch route again for me, but I have considered Gentoo for a trip down memory lane. Also considering a virtual via libvirt or such for a BSD, maybe Project Trident. Set myself to using certain virts for certain tasks so that I expand my horizons and remind myself the forgotten.

Have been on Neon for awhile but missing my good i3-gaps setups.
