Pinned toot

A mature fellow, with a hankering for control over my own computing.

I've admired Linux over the years & have moved my main box over.

My distros:
Desktop: MX Linux 18
Laptop: MX Linux 18
Old Laptop: Bodhi 5

Previously bewitched by OpenSUSE, Peppermint, Porteus, Lubuntu, Linux Lite.

Simplicity, Choice, Freedom and Control - along with Ethical, Sustainable computing all figure into my love for Linux.

Pinned toot

is in my blood

I enjoy playful flirtations with my imagination, inspired by gaming. The emotional adventures that can be had.

I enthuse, I write, I podcast, and champion the niche in almost all forms of entertainment.

I prefer communities that support consideration & mutual respect, maturity & passionate discussion.

I'm a Dad & a Kid (at heart).

Games, even at their most basic, can unlock realms of excitement and untold adventure.. bring it on..

Game On!

It's certainly got the look..

@rick_777 It's a roguelike that I find very addictive, so I've tried to do various things to prevent myself from playing it, but I always just work around them and end up playing it

Many websites already support TLS 1.3 (including our blog). TLS 1.3 is currently the most secure TLS version.

You can check all websites you frequently visit by (temporarily) switching to TLS 1.3 only:

– Chrome/Chromium: Set "--ssl-version-min=tls1.3" in chromium-flags.conf
– Firefox: Go to about:config in FF and switch "security.tls.version.min" to 4.

Feel free to reply to this post to list other websites with support for TLS 1.3. 🙂

If anything's going to keep FOSS alive it won't be web-scale upstream-owning megacorps, and it won't be yesterday's problematic icons alienating everybody they talk to today.

It's gonna be you, doing stuff you think is cool and helping other people do stuff they think is cool.

A thought provoking episode 3 from on and its accountability (by the Center for Humane Technology)

Really enjoyed the insights/perspectives presented & am well impressed that they offer PDF transcripts of their episodes for those who want to read and not listen.

Touches on a lot of topics including

But my philosophy since the windows debacle is this- I own the damned computer, and I tell it what to do, not the other way around.

Fastest way for something on my network to be replaced is for the OS or app to tell me I can't do something basic and/or essential.

A new copyright bill would mean anyone who's ever shared a meme, shared a photo that isn't theirs, or downloaded a photo they didn't take could find themselves owing $5,000

Old enough to remember when small business web sites didn't need a database connection to show you their home page.

I posted a somewhat philosophical question on reddit regarding #orgmode and how you do your files. It's a pretty... slow community. Any long-term org users want to jump in maybe?

@spelk The thing I find most baffling is when people go to great efforts to grow an entirely different biome to the one where they live. Like those people who go to Arizona and then engineer their garden to grow a lawn. I mean, I appreciate the determination, but what's so bad about enjoying the plants which will grow in the existing biome?
