Thinking about getting into software development after being sidelined for seven years. (Got burned out, went back to school, went to grad school, got burnt out there, lather, rinse repeat ;)
I was a security analyst, and then a sysadmin from the very early 2000s until seven years ago.
I never went into software development, because the developers that were around me at work were... unimpressive to me. Not technical people at all, just wholly abstract
Wondering where I should start
Reasons I’m stuck on iOS for the foreseeable future 😕:
* I value iOS’s weak-and-fundamentally-compromised privacy virtue over android’s weak-and-fundamentally-compromised openness virtue.
* iMessage and especially FaceTime are indispensable for staying in touch with family members, particularly ones overseas, particularly since I have divested from all Facebook properties, such as WhatsApp. They won’t try alternatives like Matrix.
That’s about it.
Helping my uncle set up his new LG Gram that we got him for Christmas and his birthday, and Microsoft now won’t let you set up a computer without an online account. AT ALL.
I'm tempted by the Amazon Fire tablets... But there's no way I'd want to keep the stock OS on them. Are there any notable OS ports out there for those devices? #ubuntutouch perhaps?
I'm falling in love with MATE on Debian, after trying out ALL the major DEs.
I was just wondering (since you contribute to both distros) if we can get some of the Ubuntu MATE sugar (welcome screen, panel style switcher, etc.) on Debian, even as optional package(s). My MATE experience has been a wee bit bumbling, and I wish I had that welcome screen and some other niceties at the start. ;)
Hey @nextcloud, I love the service, but I was wondering if there might be a feature on the roadmap where all of the data is encrypted, even where it is stored. What I mean, is something like backblaze where the host/provider doesn't have any access to your data, and all data is encrypted/decrypted on the fly by the client, and not just encrypted in transit.
I'd like to buy nextcloud hosting (self-hosting isn't practical for me), but I don't want the host to be able to read my files.
By the specs, the #Librem5 screen is a little higher res than the standard iPad. So, still quite nice.
I’ve had both 720p and 1080p phones. I won’t say I can’t tell the difference (with reading glasses on), but as @todd said, it’s definitely an area of diminishing returns beyond 720p.
Also, you can still watch 1080p videos on a 720p device, and the quality will be higher than a 720p video because of fewer compression losses. I do that kind of thing all the time, even 4K on a 1080 monitor.
