The more I read news about Windows 11, the more grateful I am to have other better options.

This started happening when I setup syncthing and started syncing my files in so my guess it's choking on some files in my homedir. I haven't dug into yet but that's on my list of problems to solve as part of my exploration.


I think it’s about time I take #nixos for a full spin so I can better understand some of the hype I’ve been hearing. Any suggestions as to the minimum amount of time I should give it? Any pitfalls I should expect?

I’d suggest taking a little bit of time reading this “book”. It explains core concepts very well and will help you theough most of the initial bumps. As for how long to take for it? I’m 3 years in and still learning :-) But it’s a great system with endless options. https://nixos-and-flakes.thiscute.world/introduction/

It's a non violent exploration adventure game in which you discover a Provence like planet with your van.

Go watch the trailer and wishlist if you like what you see 👀

I've been doing some cleanup of my various chat networks, bringing my #matrix account back to a self-hosted instance, and tuning my #xmpp server. And while I'm at taking #deltachat for a more serious run. Maybe it'll be less friction for some.



Likely a result of recent Slack shenanigans, the pressure on the matrix.org server is a good reminder of why I should just run my own #matrix instance. It also just adds to my appreciation of how much nicer it is to run and use #xmpp.

I really wish emergency services would stop relying solely on xtwitter and bookface for sharing important information and incident updates. At least provide a public feed via rss or even just an accessible web site.
in reply to Morgan McMillian

@joeo10 They do here in Oz. Even have Android and iOS apps that are quite effective.
in reply to Das Interrobang‽

@peemee I know there are some agencies in the US that does emergency alerts in other avenues such as apps, websites and RSS, not enough do. That's a major problem having one centralized way to do so.

TFW you’re riding the train to work and suddenly everyone around you gets off at the same stop and you wonder if they know something you don’t.

@cb I ran my old sets of servers Fujitsu Siemens 470’s and HP DL 140 G3’s on FC4 through to F22. I use Armbian on BananaPi M3’s these days.

Hey, all...anything being done to address that weird pipewire audio bug when upgrading from 39 to 40 where no output device is detected for audio?

Still running 39 on my main workstation, upgraded my laptop (guinea pig hehe) to 40, and ran into the no audio output devices bug. Deleting the pipewire stuff in the .local folder doesn't seem to be persistant after a reboot...anyone else experiencing this? Other than that, loving F40...



I finally got around to trying out #slidge (https://sr.ht/~nicoco/slidge/) on my #xmpp server to connect up a few of those other chat services and I gotta say I'm really impressed.

I really should have been labeling these. I’ll have to go back and do that. But here is Pia the Peacemaker.
