I think my website https://chriswere.wales could use a new aesthetic. Any suggestions or design ideas Fedi?

Quoting @matthew_d_green from the hellsite:

โ€œTelegram has launched a pretty intense campaign to malign Signal as insecure, with assistance from Elon Musk. The goal seems to be to get activists to switch away from encrypted Signal to mostly-unencrypted Telegramโ€

@bascule @matthew_d_green The fact that you can't sign up to Telegram with the FOSS build of the app tells me everything I need to know. I also don't like privacy focused platforms that link accounts to a phone number.

I simply cannot daily Linux for the time being due to my hardware being incompatible.
I love Linux and what people do with it, but I can't use it due to no fault of my own.
if you're going to bash Linux at least give a good reason for it.

@Jessica I'm not really sure why people are so bent out of shape about this. From what I understand there are just two version of KeepassXC, one with more features than the other being packaged in Debian. Debian have always been conservative with this kind of thing.

ChrisWere,
@ChrisWere@toot.wales avatar

@Jessica Yeah but in this case they're including both options in the distro repos, but yeah, you can also get it in Snaps, Flats, and Apps as well.

ChrisWere,
@ChrisWere@toot.wales avatar

@Jessica I don't consider them because Flats and Apps do they job just as well, but being more FOSSY at the same time.

ChrisWere,
@ChrisWere@toot.wales avatar

@Jessica Yeah, this is the flexibility of Linux in action. I appreciate the Debian values and procedures, which I understand would not be shared by everyone, but there are options for all.

What do you think is the best thing to happen to in the last few years?

@gamingonlinux I vote for the success of the Steam Deck. Put a new Linux gaming machine - a good one - into a lot of peoples' hands.

Bluesky says goodbye to Mr. Jack (co-founder and former CEO of Twitter). He is back to bird site. He has been posting there for the past few days. Then unfollowed everyone except three accounts (Musk, Snowden, and Assange's wife). ๐Ÿ˜‚

Like it's taken me years to get good at frontend dev, backend dev, project management, marketing, user support and also realizing how I can use my growing following to benefit other people and projects

And now it's all coming together and I couldn't be happier ๐Ÿ˜

Building @pixelfed and everything else is a dream I've had for so many years and now I'm just in awe of the fact I'm actually doing this.

Never stop believing in yourself โค๏ธ
