Nothing personal, but I would like to delete my account, but I can't seem to figure out how. I'm no longer able to log in under, but my account is still active. O_o

Fedi is the most strange thing in the world.

On normal social media, you write a message and people just ignore it forever.

Here, you write a message, it stays ignored for 1 or 2 years, and then all of a sudden, for no reason, with no explanation, someone finds it somehow, boosts it, and it gets 200 likes and 120 boosts.

What the fuck.

I'm sure someone will boost this message in 2021 or 2022.

Reliable profit comes from maintaining a good product; not exploiting every last drop. Corporations need to recognize that sustainability, is seriously far more important, than capital before anything else.

Love the app, just wish it had a feature where I could click on an address and share it with a different navigation app to start navigating. As it is, I have to long press, select the text of the address, then open the navi app and paste it in. Thanks!

@PINE64 Any idea when we will be able to order ANSI model again?

I've got a hankering for one (as we say down south), but it's been unavailable for some time. 😢

I love bash, I love coding in bash. I've been coding in bash for nearly two decades.
Looking at bash's parameter expansion syntax almost makes me want to drink -- and I'm a tee-totaller.
I will call awk/sed all day long, and incur the fork() performance penalties, rather than ever learning that awful syntax, which makes regex look like Shakespeare.

Hey @ChrisWere, @fribbledom, @nextcloud, @codesections, @linode, and other smart people:
What's the best/cheapest solution for a 512GB or 1TB Nextcloud instance? Any hosting suggestions and pricing? My 2TB dropbox subscription* expires in April, and I don't want to rely on non-FLOSS syncing software anymore.


*I'm only using 256GB right now

Hey awesome peeps at @PINE64, given any thought to creating a FLOSS e-ink device, particularly with a stylus?

Is the current kerfuffle really warranted? It seems to me that both sides acted a bit immature, and finally came to a relatively mature, but quite imperfect resolution.

We need a digital Dr. Strange to come in and put us all in the Mirror Dimension for three days until we calm down whenever something like this happens.

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
Any ideas?

KDE, if you weren’t the most usable, stable, and configurable/flexible desktop environment I’ve ever used in Linux, I’d be really getting tired of your shite by now.

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?

Hey @Wimpy

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. ;)

Much thanks!

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.


I love how nearly all Linux DEs can be configured to use a dock (mac-like) or a taskbar (windows-like, and also Win7/8/10-like vs. Win 95/98/2000/XP-like).

The flexibility and configurability (NOT YOU, Gnome) of most DEs is a bit intense, but really awesome once you settle in.
