Just had someone walk halfway into my apartment. Apparently they're Airbnb guests looking for the apartment above us. My wife and I both yelled at them and slammed the door. They were harmless, but we also live in Harlem. Fight mode was definitely in full effect. Still a bit shaky.

Trying to find information on . What is it? Like a Mastodon alternative?

Ok, I don't usually rant, but I have a small one. Been seeing post pretty frequently about version 15, so thought I'd update the snap to get the new version. Immediately after the upgrade, nothing worked. Can't access the front end, getting a 500 error, and can't find anything in their documentation on what to do after updating the package. For now, I'll just shutdown the server. I don't have the patience anymore. 😑

Ok, rant over. We will resume our regularly scheduled programming!

Good morning all πŸ™ƒ . A little random this morning, but has anyone heard of the language Esperanto? I stumbled across it last night and it seems interesting, even if it's spoken by relatively few people.

I think I just successfully circumvented my IT department's tracking software (hopefully). VM's are a wonderful thing.

Mastodon, I need your help:

I'm looking for non-software-related companies/organizations that use (or try to use) #freesoftware #FLOSS for their work, communications, organization, etc.

Do you know of any? Please boost!

Also, not to open a can of worms, but what do people like more: Snap or Flatpak packages? (Can you tell I've run out of things to do at work? πŸ˜†)

Trying to do everything in a terminal is becoming a bit of an obsession πŸ™ƒ

Just realized this is the only social media I use besides Instagram (But even that's more business than personal use). Already deleted Facebook after the Cambridge Analytica crap. I think Twitter is getting the axe next.

Is it just me or does anyone else get the urge to do a clean install of linux every month or so? Is it just my OCD showing?

Does anyone happen to be familiar with Samba/Avahi? I've got an Ubuntu server with 3 Samba shares on it, but the server won't show up in my wife's Win10 network tab. I originally fixed this issue by installing Avahi on the server, but for whatever reason it stopped. My Ubuntu laptop can see the server no problem...Why does Windows have to be difficult...😞

Anyone have an opinion on Proxmox for virtualization?

I'm wanting to setup servers for Plex and Nextcloud, with the potential for expansion. I know XenServer is kind of the leader in this, but I don't want to sign up for a Citrix account which requires me to give my mailing address...wtf?

I'm curious to know what you think! This is my first foray into virtualization on bare metal.
