I'm testing a PeerTube plugin I'm creating to improve use and display of Creative Commons licenses. If you want to see it in action, you can view it by watching any video of @boilingsteam

As a topic for next show: Let's find Drew a new Mastodon instance!

Maybe get your audience involved and create a poll or something. (hmm, that reeks of brand building... maybe not)

My suggestion: cybre.space/

I've been thinking a lot about carrier pigeons with SD cards lately.

Want to know why? Read some on "salvage computing" by solderpunk.



If you're looking for a no-fuss home media streaming solution, I would recommend the streaming media server Rygel, which is part of the GNOME project. Basically you can just got to Settings > Sharing > Media Sharing in your GNOME based distro, turn it on and your DLNA/UPnP clients (like Smart TVs) will auto-magically pick up your media as a media source through your home network.


@hund ...or just plug the media storage hard drive directly in your TV (USB maybe?) and just use the file system browser to select what you want to watch.

@hund I was reading your article from 2020 on your text-based media center and was wondering if your TV supports DLNA and how you connect your computer/media center. LAN / Wifi or HDMI? Either way (wired or wireless), you could use a small board computer with an external hard drive for media storage for a "cheap, tiny and low consumption setup".

Does anyone know what happens to all once they are EOL? Do schools return them to the supplier? Or do they end up in the drawer like smartphones?

I bought a deprecated HP Chromebook 11 G4 from my son's school for 20 euro. ChromeOS will be supported until september and then it's EOL. Thinking of replacing it with GalliumOS and turning it into a Bravebook "le shill lion edition". Same feautures and theming, but with a better chromium browser as base.

Openpilot has an MIT license by the way. More permissive than GPL, but this video shows he’s fearless and just wants automotive driving for the masses (and not just for Tesla owners)

That’s the (free software) spirit. George Hotz on open sourcing Openpilot.

PeerTube v3.1 is out!
Better transcoding features, more pleasant interfaces, possibility to easily subscribe to a remote account and... so many great features!

We're having some issues with our PeerTube instance peertube.linuxrocks.online since the Texas blackout. Although everything seems to be running fine on the server, somehow users are experiencing connection time-outs. We're still trying to fix this and will restart/reboot in the mean time to get the instance back online, but bear in mind that it might go offline suddenly again.

I have been thinking about a slightly simpler version of the protocol, but discovered today that it's already specced as the hypothetical Mercury protocol (not Gopher).


I have this thing for interoperability and cross-platform applications. I just connected an external hard drive with media files to my home network and now I can watch/listen everything with VLC on my Apple TV. UPnP rocks!
