This is a thread of all my posts made in September 2022, starting 2022-09-01.
#ProTip If you fear a domain may get terminated, use #dig with the tool below and collect the #DNS records of your domain and subdomains. You can use them in /etc/hosts on #Linux and you will be able to continue accessing the server, even if the domain goes down. This is what we should've done with #DistroTest, but it's too late!
DT, if you ever get to that point, this is the time you should start maintaining all the other projects you have going, such as https://distro.tube, Gemini, and even your Mastodon profile. Also, how are you finally going to give us #DistroToot?
Hey why has this domain expired?
Here's an archive I found:
Does your distro get #Snap out of the box, and are you having issues with Snap?
Regular Ubuntu and Server does not count in this poll. Non-Ubuntu distros don’t count either.
Boosts and comments appreciated. Please comment with the distro you’re using.
Root BSD Profile Pictures
The text for the display names of the two profiles are:
> 𝕽𝖔𝖔𝖙 BSD 🐸 🐡
I’ve also archived this image by @syscrash as posted by @bonkersbsd:
Hey @nerdtronics do you have the original profile picture for your channel Root BSD, as well as the one you last used on PeerTube until recently?
I think I discovered what the #Mastodon audio player used to look like.
So I have over 1,000 posts (on the Mastodon end) on @email@example.com, and almost 7,000 posts on this account. Honestly I just prefer Mastodon over Misskey and even Pleroma. Probably because I was on the Mastodon instance DistroToot.
I've noticed a lot of #fediverse accounts were created in 2022, even after my account was created on this instance by Starnix!
How do I type this #Plan9 symbol ⑨ without having to keep copying and pasting? I saw it posted by two accounts today.
But Google did a trick. Their replacement still allows you to make Adblock extensions, but they won't work as well, subconsciously leading users to believe that they just don't work, and they get uninstalled. No thinking about trying an alternative like Firefox.
This is part of the plan to track everyone and put ads in front of their face, with no way to disable it. You will see the ads and you will like them.
Be thankful #Mozilla still exists and is keeping Firefox alive. Without them everyone will be using a Chromium-based browser, or Safari (but that's exclusive to Macs and iPhones, sorry).
Be thankful you're not on mobile, where mobile browsers don't even support extensions, except for #Firefox, which will still keep Manifest v2 and be able to block ads on Android. On iOS, you don't get any adblockers.
No, Brave's adblock woks fine. I'd rather stop using the internet altogether than give market share to something made by Mozilla.
@james Why don't I see my own emoji on this end? Maybe it's because it's too large to be an emoji...
The picture shows up just fine.
@james #snapd is a disease that should never be on a computer, but I feel the same way about #flatpak & #appimage, so no discrimination here. Seriously though, they all run slower than if you compiled the apps yourself on #Linux & they're bloated.
@james Linux Mint (Ubuntu based distro) comes without Snaps by default, even Firefox browser installs as a .deb package.
Yeah, it's pretty cool, very SoundCloud-like. If we could make comments linked to timestamps we could have a very similar experience, but without all the SoundCloud's clutter 😅
@james AUDIO LOOP / MUSIC ELECTRONIC
Is quite "Zen" with part of it looped :)
Track Name: Rob Sonic - Space Cadet
(corrected name - thanks for head-up)
Anyone into music?
Want to create music together?
@james I hear you. But maybe good to add that there are more browsers which have users, not advertisers in mind.
Starnix is a community effort lead by FOSS enthusiasts for the purpose of establishing ActivityPub Software and promoting Fediverse usage. The primary topics for this Mastodon instance include but are not limited to software technology, including FOSS, Unix and Unix-like operating systems, and gaming.
