I spent the last 30 minutes trying to join meeting using MS Teams native application. No way to get past the fucking MS id. Grrr. At least the web version work. But only in Chrome. People - do not use MS Teams!

fans: Yesterday the Fedora i3 SIG (odilhao specifically) submitted the Fedora i3 kickstarts to the fedora-kickstarts compose repository. Once this is merged, the Fedora i3 Spin ISOs are expected for the Fedora 34 Beta.

P.S. – Too eager to wait for Beta? You can find nightly builds of Fedora 34 target deliverables. Note, these are NOT official and NOT fully tested. Test out nightly ISOs in a Virtual Machine, but avoid running on bare-metal until Beta.

On #Peertube it is possible to livestream via OBS Studio / #Jitsi Meet.

docs.joinpeertube.org/use-crea

> If you want to broadcast a webinar or a conference very easily, you can also use Jitsi Meet for recording the event, and rely on PeerTube for streaming it live. It is very useful if you have an expected audience too big for Jitsi to handle, but actually only a few people talking.

You can start a webinar with a pure FOSS solution 🎉

The recording of my talk about extensions has now been uploaded and you can watch it here: video.fosdem.org/2021/D.testin
Thanks to the awesome @fosdem team!

They say "do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life" but they never warned me that it's impossible to keep loving that thing after it becomes your job.

Am meisten nervt bei den ganzen Tools das man nach kurzer Zeit hunderte verschiedene DB-Lösungen hat. Die einen wollen #MySQL die andern #PostgreSQL dann noch #MongoDB. Wenn es hart kommt werden auch noch unterschiedliche Versionen gefordert. Was glauben die Devs eigentlich was ein #SysAdmin den ganzen Tag macht? Da gibt es solche Veranstaltungen wie #FOSDEM aber keine Sau kommt auf die Idee mal abzusprechen das es einen kleinsten gemeinsamen Nenner bei der Unterstüzung von DBs gibt Dafür 👎
