This is something @Ben_Cates@twitter.com kinda drilled into my head as senior web engineer at System76: it might not be your fault, but it is definitely your problem.
It sucks, but it’s true so often. 😭
@CassidyJames@twitter.com Totally not your fault. But totally your problem now too (as smart oven manufacturer).
Anyone know of a good alternative to Mastodon for peer-to-peer activity pub? I found this list, but wondering if anyone knows if one is better than another... I'd like to experiment with running my own server, but Mastodon honestly looks pretty bloated.
Fun Sunday read talking about Tiling Desktop Managers, etc. https://bitcannon.net/post/pro-desktop/
The issue with the upcoming #USCensus regarding the citizenship question is overblown.
There are only *two* things that *must* be answered on the census form: The physical address in question (which is usually pre-filled), and the number of alive & born humans in the address on April 1st.
All other questions are optional.

Hey guys just wanted to let everybody know that letschatlinux.com has moved to freenode at #letschatlinux. Come and join us!
@Loonie You should post pictures from your road trip as you go :)
Mastodon is ultimately my replacement for following Linux devs and enthusiasts - that's ultimately what I used Google+ for. Here are a few more accounts that I found that I think are worth following:
If you have any suggestions let me know!
I realized I've done a lot of work on Ephemeral over the past couple of months, but the announcement post doesn't mention any of it. So here's a new blog post with details of everything new in Ephemeral since last time! https://medium.com/@cassidyjames/major-updates-to-ephemeral-f48fb86b57e7
It's always fun to see more projects saying "use our 1-line installer!" Just `curl https://definitelynotgonnahurt.lol/badideas.sh | sudo -E bash `
Don't worry though, we used TLS, so you know it's safe!
Let's see how image sharing with links works on Mastodon... here's a picture of the snow in Seattle yesterday morning - before we got an additional 1-2 more inches. I measured it at just under 8 inches total from Friday through yesterday when it stopped.
(Trying again - apparently including a link to a Google photo doesn't embed - https://photos.app.goo.gl/f5M445dpmnmUCYTRA )
I started following quite a few other people on other networks - ubuntu.social and fosstodon.org - and I noticed that it takes quite a bit of time for that initial follow confirmation page to load. Anyone know why that is? Is this server under-powered? Is mastodon just using a weird spec? Is there a server-side handshake taking place before that page renders?
I realized that I've been checking G+ for Linux / Kernel / Etc. news every morning for the last 8 years or so; now that's all going to come to an end. I found a few stragglers here on https://linuxrocks.online - and I just found a few more on https://ubuntu.social/ . If anyone knows of other Mastodon communities for Linux nerds let me know. :)
Got a new laptop for work recently: Thinkpad X1 Extreme. So far the easiest / best hardware support has come from Pop_OS (I was surprised that Ubuntu wouldn't even boot with the hybrid graphics). I would highly recommend the model, but maybe wait for better Optimus support. Anyone have any success with Wayland and hybrid graphics? Maybe I should switch...
