Mobile phones are brilliant, mobile internet is a disaster.

Running a development version of PeerTube on WSL1 (Ubuntu1804) and testing it with a browser on Windows. It works, but installing it was painfully slow.

The Fedora and Lenovo partnership is about more than just selling Thinkpads with Linux pre-installed. In this special video interview, Fedora lead Matthew Miller and Lenovo's Senior Linux Software Engineer Mark Pearson join me to discuss a TON of details.

@killyourfm I kind of got the feeling you would end up using PopOS as your Linux distro for personal use (creative, games, modern hardware, etc.). Now with 20.04 I am even more convinced.

Ok, so the LetsEncrypt auto-renewal worked, but I still encountered an expired certificate warning in Firefox, because I enabled HSTS for PeerTube a month ago, playing around with Content Security Policies.

COVID-19, selfisolation 

I'm happy that I no longer see as many "what to do when you are bored during selfisolation", "what you can do now that you have more free time". I'm working, my wife is working and we have small kids. I'm not bored and I have no free time, I'm not even able to do my job related work because I need to take care of the little once so my wife can do some of her work.

There's been a lot of uploading of illegal content to our PeerTube instance. I won't allow it. The user and videos are instantly deleted without notice.

@MXLinux Indeed, it's great that the schools are making it easy for Zoom and whoever to spy on the kids.

Long Term Switched to Linux (2/2)

Lately I have been thinking about the importance of beauty a lot (probably because Roger Scruton passed away recently). I feel that in my choice of distro beauty is something I consider, even when I try not to, beacause I think I shouldn't by convention.

I think I will try out the following distros the coming month and then decide which I will use for the next 2 years:

- Deepin
- elementary OS
- Mint

(thanks @ChrisWere and @killyourfm for the inspiration)

Long Term Switched to Linux (1/2)

I've only been using Linux on the desktop (mostly laptops) for 2 years now. The main reason I switched is not so much the OS itself, but the planned obsolesence of hardware that comes with it.

Although I kind of like all the other reasons to switch to Linux, I honestly care less about them.

I have been using Ubuntu Budgie 18.04 LTS and plan to upgrade after the next LTS release. As I will do a fresh install anyway, I am considering alternatives...

Tried Mozilla Thunderbird as RSS reader for a while, but didn't like it for several reasons. Switched to Newsboat and added a send-to-pocket shell script on the bookmark-cmd for "reading it later".

The biggest downside of using WSL for me, is that sucks out all of the fun of using Linux. My employer already enforced Windows as primary OS, but now also decided that even desktop VM is a security risk.

Typically forgot to renew our Let's Encrypt certificate. Just renewed it after 2 days. Sorry for the possible inconvenience.
