Can I use Linux from a portable Hard Drive to use whenever/wherever I need it?

So if I have my Desktop at home, my personal laptop, and my laptop I use for work/business trips, can I have my own personal Linux setup on a portable drive that I can plug into and boot into from any of my devices? Like a cloud Linux setup, but I'm the cloud. Fear my cumulonimbus rumbles!

It is doable to install an OS onto a flash drive or external drive, but from my experience it was really slow. Just need to make sure to then boot the machine to the USB device. Some machines you might find it difficult to change that in the BIOS.

They all do interact and “work” together. I know Dansup is working on a single sign in with mastodon to Pixelfed. That’ll be a nice integration too. I think what kind of integration will be nice to have one account across multiple platforms.

You are viewing a post that is originating on kbin social. It is then federating to your instance in kbin.cafe. So your instance is receiving a copy in a way to view and interact with the post. Your instance then can send a copy of the replies and comments to the originating instance so they can all work together.

You and others on kbin.cafe will have to subscribe to the same magazine on other instances. You would interact with it just like you are now with this post on kbin.social. There is a possibility the same post could appear in the general / all feed of federated posts too.

You can try the “more > copy link to fediverse”

But you shouldnt have to browse kbin.social then copy that link to a url formatted for you instance.

On your kbin.cafe you could try /d/kbin.social to try and do a link too. Might just need to follow the /m/ on other instances to see the posts from other kbin and lemmy instances.

This is looking great! Going to be a nice addition to the kbin experience. Can’t wait!

There was also an update to Kbin.social around that time I would think, as I see this is now 50~ minutes old.

The settings and federation panel are on the right sidebar by default. On mobile they are set to float and follow the main content then hide the panel so you see the federation icon and settings panel. After the settings is the magazine info and the user who posted the thread info.

I agree these should be a tad easier to find or added to the user profile as well.

This is the way

I’ve used some of them and the web and mobile interface of kbin is still easier to use than the beta apps of lemmy and web interface. Not sure why so many went the lemmy route other than the rexxit and lemmy was slightly easier at the time to spin up new instances.

This is neat, been looking for an example on how to use a SQLite db in a vuejs app. This could be what I need!

For that price point and management, I sure hope that helps kbin easier for others to get more instances going. Even if folks have a 1-5 user instance $10/mo is great!

Artemis private beta rollouts have begun!

Hi there, the Artemis private beta rollout has just started! @hariette will be emailing 50 signup sheet users, while @lilkev will be adding 50 users from Artemis Discord. The order will be based on the submissions to the private beta signup form, as well as general activity within the Artemis community....

This is going to be a game changer for kbin! Can't wait!

OC I haven't seen anyone mention the kbin native(?) app!? I tried it and it seems perfect and amazing?

I tried Jerboa briefly and couldn't get it to work well for me. Then I visited kbin on my phone's browser and was prompted to install the kbin app!? I haven't seen any references to it, but it's exactly what I wanted...? Has anybody else tried it?

@hariette is working on ArtemisApp and there is a private beta first as it's all from the ground up. There's a lot of work Kbin needs itself to have 3rd party integrations as it is a little newer and younger than some of the alternatives.

@dansup is also working on another alternative too, kbam

Both of them are working hard on getting something to community is wanting. All in due time! You can join the /m/ArtemisApp magazine or dansup for following along with their progress. Getting involved with them seems to be the best way to help.

Still love the GameCube and games. This is what we introduced the kids too and it’s been fun watching them play the games that brought me a lot of fun too.

  • Mario Kart

  • Super smash brothers

  • Crazy Taxi

Could find the RCA connections on tvs now, but the Wii was great in the backward compatibility! Dolphin worked great for some games too, and a controller USB adapter and we’re in business!

Things can all be related, and also federated between platforms. should still let individuals build the community where they see fit. there will still be people going to both.

I never got any help asking questions there anyways. Answers I got back we’re trollish. When I provide and answer it can’t be the answer as it’s based on your own reputation score which you can’t get but answering questions. It seems like a flawed system. Didn’t know they had mods either. Never really got any solutions either from stack overflow, unless you read every comment for the right answer.

I also think some of the growth of Lemmy is the ability to get the project to a functioning stance. The start of Kbin still seems a little rocky, but getting better.

I have not yet unfortunately. I dont want to bother @ernest either but I havent had much luck. Wonder if @dannekrose knows as well?

That’s one way to do it too.
