Having Ubuntu Server 18.04LTS bundle snap and cloud-init into it, without options to define what is installed seems like a step back.

I understand the cool and groovey list of optional installs, but not have optional installs for snap and cloud-init?

Someone with a better understanding of the Ubuntu server scene might be able to shed some light on this, or there may be a good reason to do it this way?

@spelk Arch Linux and Xfce forums uses FluxBB. It's very lightweight and comes with only the essential features. :)

Anyone know if there are any easy to run, ethical privacy aware for linux hosting?

Preferably something that doesn't need a massive stack of dependant frameworks to run it.

Any opinions or advice would be very much welcomed.

Every time I get back on i3, i'm amazed at how fast a desktop could switch windows and desktops when unhindered.

spelk boosted

@spelk That absolutely makes sense. I started with i3 and vim myself, and am slowly moving more of my workflow over to terminal based applications. I'm also learning C at the moment as well, so I'm trying to take it one step at a time. is an amazing window manager though and I don't think I could live without it now. The same also goes for vim.

Best of luck on your journey!

I've been sampling the joys & freedoms of & yet its a tug of war between wanting to go the full journey into terminal/keyboard controlled everything (qutebrowser/ranger/mpd+ncmpcpp) & keeping some semblance of my old desktop GUI/mousing ways.

If I see a 'tuber extol their sleek i3 setups, I get all giddy and study their dotfiles, but often stumble & fall over piecing it all together, and the trip ups make me hanker after my security blanket of GUI again.

I'll settle for halfway for now.

A list is basically a filter. So you will see all public Toots from any accounts in your list.

@spelk for music I use bandcamp (drm free, loseless dowload, pay that you want with or without minimum). For film I abandoned the idea and use netflix :(

@spelk There simply is no legal way to achieve this. You can record stuff on TV yourself. But that"s not practical nor funny. The only way to get premium content of Movies, TVShows and Audiobooks in a future safe, DRM free form .. is ripping from DVD, Blueray, etc yourself or download piracy content. Sad, but true. Publishers have no interest in helping users build up collections. They prefer to charge you multiple times for the same product with each new platform/medium that is developed.

If you've collected various, film/movie and audiobook media via DRM services (Google Play, Amazon Video, Audible) where does one go to purchase these media types DRM free with similar range of choice and ease of downloading/delivery?

@spelk I'm still saving pennies to buy that Librem5 when it comes out in January.
