I've uploaded my 50th video to my #PeerTube account @chriswere. My overall experience with PeerTube has been overwhelmingly positive.

There have been one or two hiccups along the way, it's new tech, still in beta and even taking all that into account I think it's all pretty wonderful.

A very special thanks to @Curator for helping me get set up, thanks to @ChrisTalleras for giving me the push I needed to get on there and of course thank you so much to @Chocobozzz for all your amazing work.

Unpopular opinion:

I actually really like gnome.

Started out with KDE cause tons of people like it. but after watching @ChrisWere POP!_OS video i just loved the aesthetics of it. Having everything super minimal then pressing the super key have everything pop up

The latest version of #Chrome doesn't delete Google cookies even when you ask it to delete all cookies:

It also does some dodgy stuff with logging people into Google:

Chrome is made by Google, who make vast amounts of money from invading people's privacy.

The best easy-to-use alternative right now is probably Firefox:

Für alle die es interessiert, in mailcow wird in den kommenden Tagen die Mailverschlüsselung integriert
Dann liegen die Mails verschlüsselt auf dem Server. Der admin hat kein Zugriff die Schlüssel werden durch das Benutzerpasswort verschlüsselt
Tja dann verlasse ich wohl @Tutanota wieder und zurück zu meinem Server :)

Google has started signing people in to Chrome without asking if they sign in to any google site like gmail or YouTube.

That leaves you one click away from uploading all your browsing data to Google.

Blinkendes TAXI-Schild -> 110 Anrufen und mit gesundem Menschenverstand dran bleiben.

Habe eben ein Taxi gesehen, das "SOS" mit roten LEDs am TAXI-Schild gemorst hat. War zum glück "nur" ein Unfall und die Polizei schon vor Ort: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taxi-Ala

If you ask anyone off the street who was the single person who influenced technology the most they would probably say Steve Jobs or Bill Gates. The truth of the matter is the person is Linus Torvalds. In this day and age the linux kernel is everywhere from TVs and surround sound systems hell even my light bulbs run a linux kernel. You cannot escape it. The whole world is going Linux!

I'm finally here! So here goes for an #introduction:

I'm a #librarian at a small public library in New England, USA. I do a little bit of everything there: tech services, public services, janitorial services, snow-shoveling - whatever needs to be done.

When I'm not working, commuting, cleaning house, or spending time with family, I'm likely listening to #podcasts, exploring online learning sites, #blogging, and now discovering the fediverse.

Doctor: I'm terribly sorry but the tests are back. Your child is artistic.

Parents: (sob)

Doctor: Now don't worry, it's not the end of the world. Your child will never have the mind of an executive, but with modern innovations like Etsy, Patreon and Kickstarter, they may be able to pay rent well into their mid-20s.

Parent: Did... did crayons do this

Doctor: Who can say? We're exposed to so many forms of art every day: music, poetry, language, geometry..

Parent: We're getting crayons BANNED

The world’s first time traveler was just a boy who created a machine. The moment before he first switched it on, he appeared to himself as an old man.

“Don’t,” the old man said.

The boy hesitated, but he remembered how angry he was at every adult who ever tried to hold him back.

“Fuck you, old man,” he said, smiled, and hit the switch.

In an instant, he was old, standing before his younger self.

“Don’t,” he said.
