@micahbp Nice! I'll definitely take a look at it. I've been using Kdenlive and have been pretty impressed with how easy it is! Is DaVinci a next level up?

@gbryant Have you done a beginner video on LBRY? I have it installed but am beyond confused with how this thing works.

@micahbp This is so good to know! Counting down here: fewer than 60 days left on my Adobe subscription.

@christitus So far, Standard Notes is the best one I've found. I wanted to try Joplin, but couldn't get it to install in Zorin OS. Also tried CherryTree, but it was a usability mess.

@christitus Ever consider doing a video about note taking apps on Linux? I've tried doing some research and am so's like the wild west of office applications.

Android users, if you use Assist, you can now set DuckDuckGo as your default app for most Assist options. #ComeToTheDuckSide

@micahbp Waze works really well. Unfortunately, it's owned by Google.

@micahbp Librem One email confused me with the encryption process. If I send an email to somebody with an encrypted email service, do they get it as just a normal email or do they have to click some kind of link just to access the message? I also didn't like how they delete unencrypted email after 30 days...that would never fly for my work usage.

@micahbp I'm stuck on those two as well as Google Voice. I can't find a service that does everything it does. T-Mobile's DIGITS was the closest thing I could find, but I tried it and it was a total disaster. For maps, I keep meaning to try HERE but have heard very mixed reviews.

@dallin "Degree of dependence" is a great point that I've also learned in this journey. My original goal was to totally drop Google. I've come to accept the fact that that's not very realistic (at this point in time). However, I can certainly lessen my dependence on Google...which I'm doing one step at a time.

In today's episode of , I successfully migrated my email from to . This is a test run -- not 100% ready to commit. However, the nice part about owning my own domain is that I can redirect my email address to any provider I want and not have to change addresses.

To celebrate the fact that #1989 remains one of my favorite years in music, I made this playlist (with a little help from the Billboard chart archives). Hard to believe that these gems are turning 30 this year!

@boxjon What did you end up switching to? I've been testing out a couple. is the leading contender. Giving up the "smart" inbox tabs is going to be a rough adjustment -- my important messages get lost.

Swiss cloud accounts are the new Swiss bank accounts. (Although their servers are in Texas...🤔 ). Anyway, another step complete. Adios, Google Drive!

Hello from central Pennsylvania! Don't know what I'm getting into, but excited to take another step on my breakup with Big Tech.
