Today is one month since #HiveTime's quiet little launch. Right now, it's about 50 sales off grossing enough to cover the direct monetary expenses I had during development. If you're thinking of buying it & have the resources to do so today, I'd love to cross that milestone ^_^

Twitter, drama 

I don't use Twitter, but via RSS and Mastodon crossposters I occasionally get a glimpse into some drama that's going on over there. I see mention of a "holy war", "<x>-gate", etc., even within some innocuous community like webdev or JavaScript.

There is no holy war; there is only Twitter whipping up controversy for engagement. If you think the "other side" is some cartoonish caricature of evil, ask yourself who benefits from presenting that worldview to you.

Just finished my new PC build to replace my old i7. I'm all AMD! Ryzen 7 and my old RX480. Plus I got rid of my old nasty Windows drives. Benefit of keeping my Linux home drive on a separate disk meant all I had to do at install time was point the installer at it and voila all my stuff was where I'd left it.

Bit of a daft question, but how do I find out the email address I registered for Linux rocks? I've tried numerous reset password attempts but nothing has arrived in any mailbox.

At some point I created a Linux usb installer on a Windows PC to get away from using Windows. Now I make usb installers from within my Linux distro.

It does puzzle me though. Was there ever a point where I could have traced back a "pure" Linux installer which at no point had it or any of it's predecessors had been "born" on Windows or Mac?

*Falls down rabbit hole*

Anyone out there in order a system from RaptorCS? I know they're a relatively small company serving a niche market, so I'm willing to give them a fair amount of flexibility here, but how long did it take to get your order? I'm only anxious about it because my only options until it gets here are my laptops or an SBC of some flavor, and neither of them are great desktop replacements.

Boosts welcome to reach more people.

So this has got me the closest to quitting Linux; netplan... All I wanted to achieve was a static IP address on Ubuntu 18.04. so/etc/network/interfaces isn't used any more so I took to learning netplan. This seems way too fickle with using yaml. I must have written out good known working IP address config multiple times only for netplan try to tell me to go to hell. I finally got this working by copying from a forum and then adapting. Feels retrograde. Very uncool :(

Just installed @nextcloud on my HP MicroServer using snaps. How easy was that?! 3 lines got me Nextcloud, Letsencrypt and autoSSL renewal. Very, very impressed. Thanks 👍

Ran out of space for my \home so used my old windows 2TB SSHD as a new mount point for my \home, copied existing stuff over, quick fstabs edit and it worked.

Crikey, I do love Linux!

Got a spare couple of minutes? Take this quick survey to help me (aka Mr Very Much Not a Designer) design an @omgubuntu that is a kinder on your eyes 👀🎨

@gamingonlinux @ChrisWere @HexDSL do you think a database of working Steam Play hardware/distro/games would be relevant or of any use? Or is such a thing already in existence?

I guess this is the point where I ask for help. If anyone familiar with Rust would like to work with me on a library for the Mastodon API please reach out to me.

Gmail seems to hate Evolution. Even using TLS for IMAP I'm getting insecure connection warnings via Gmail. Same set up with Thunderbird; no problems. Kinda glad I'm weaning myself off the big G
