Calling all #Fediverse admins of instances in the #EU. The #CopyrightDirective is coming, we need to show the MEPs how massively the EU Internets will be affected.

We are preparing a list of all EU-based #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, and any other instances.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

Say hello to Plasma 5.15, the newest version of KDE's acclaimed desktop environment.

TIL that when you have your Thinkpad docked, the laptop's ethernet port is disabled, so that you can use the one on the dock.

I almost got crazy. It took me 2 days to figure it out...

@arthur yeah, I can see that being a problem. Thankfully, where I am we have fiber connections.

@arthur Ha, I'm constantly deleting stuff from my 500gb laptop drive. I now have 50gb available for example.

The new drives will last a few years, I intend to get 2 more in the future :)

My two new 4T drives arrived! I can finally start building my :freebsd:

Mailinabox v0.40 update is huge! Biggest change is migrating from Ubuntu 14.04 to 18.04. Guess what I'll spend my evening doing 😀

@lerk think of it more like a collaboration platform! Git(Lab|Hub) have evolved from only being a code/issue management platform.

I might be biased since I work for GitLab, but we initially implemented the status feature to solve a problem we had internally. I'm telling you from experience that it helps to know when someone is on vacation so that I can assign or ping someone else. I know it's not a perfect workflow, but it solves some issues :)

@lerk Not so sure about that. Having the status displayed can help a lot when you work in a distributed, all-remote team like GitLab :)
