I hate that google calls standard IMAP auth “less secure” while simultaneously being restrictive about who is allowed to use their OAuth login. They make life harder for our users and tell them there is something wrong with our security model when really the issue is bureaucracy

My friend said he didn't understand cloning.

I said, "That makes two of us!"

Still grumbling about YouTube 

Hmmm, how long before I keep holding out hope that YouTube will manage to fix my account before I get frustrated enough to start again from scratch?

Congratulations to Xfce / Sean Davis (Xubuntu Technical Lead and Xfce Core) on the release of Xfce 4.14.


Damn, YouTube has not let me log into my account since the weekend. I hope whatever is causing that 500 internal server error is fixed soon.

Just deleted my WordPress install. Thanks to a video from @ChrisWere I've decided to go back to hand-coded html. I'll copy over my exported markdown files to start and convert them as (and if) needed. First need to make an index page and hand-code an RSS feed. I feel like it's 1996 again.

As you may have noticed from recent boosts, @pixelfed now has "remote follows".

In case you're wondering what it is, #Pixelfed is a free open alternative to Instagram, designed for privacy-friendly photo sharing.

You can now follow Mastodon accounts from Pixelfed, and Pixelfed accounts from Mastodon.

Some good servers to sign up on:

Remote follows mean wherever you sign up, you can follow people from other servers 👍

Thought I'd try as a web app via instead of the standard app. Interesting comparison.

Electron version: 5 processes, total of 132,340 K memory used.

Epiphany version: 1 process, 29,740 memory used.

Trying to stop my battery going flat so fast so I think I'll start trying out more epiphany based web apps.

My gf's installed flash on my perfect little arch machine in order to play whimsical computer games.

Anyone know any Linux-available free games in any of these categories?

a) Horror.
b) Extremely girly.
c) Simulation.

Please save me from Flash.

Reflections from the field:

"Just built my friend an AMD based Linux gaming system".

"It runs like a champ. Setting this up was a new experience, haven't had a gaming PC since I switched to Linux a couple of years ago.

I did a lot of gaming in the past on Windows PC's. I was really surprised at how smoothly this new machine plays games.

Hardware is modest, a Ryzen 5 2400G / 16GB 3200Mhz memory and an NVMe M.2 SSD on an MSI B450M Pro. All under $500.

...and for anyone who's wondering, if a GTA game is selected, I WILL be playing with the full radio soundtrack on.

What game should I play on stream later?

It'll be on:
