I'm surprised how worried people have gotten over the channel going dark... but then again I suppose when somebody has posted a video every day since 2011 and then vanishes without a trace... its a little odd
Inky, the boys and myself... we're fine. I promise. This is all literally down to a bunch of planks pointing the finger, shouting at each other while trying to bleed as much money out of the other as possible.
On the 24th August I was given the boot from the YouTube network that managed my channel. Since then my channel has been in a bizarre state where all videos, old and new, are automatically blocked world wide. YouTube is blaming the network, the network is blaming YouTube. Since I post daily vlogs for myself, family & friends I'm resurrecting the backup channel until the main channel is fixed.
News to folks on Mastodon but I'm trying to update as many people as possible.
@KylinuxCast I have a feeling you like Ragnarok Online...!? Ever thought of playing again?

@BryanLunduke@mastodon.rocks Phantasy star Online was released on PC moons ago... fans have been propping it up since before dinosaurs went extinct :)
Runs brilliantly in Wine... My kids and I play PSO quite often. A game that was new when I was young, thanks to fans, can be shared with my kids :)
Gaming on Linux can now be supported on Liberapay !

Just finished watching a video by @ChrisWere sharing his final thoughts of Ubuntu and the Unity desktop running on real hardware.
Glad to see the videos move from a VM to actual hardware. The choice of hardware was pretty nice as well.
Spoiler Alert... it was a slightly upgraded version of the Triton from Entroware https://www.entroware.com/store/laptops/triton
Its an interesting read but totally over my head.
Microsoft call out the NSA and warn govs of the world...
Just finished watching "They're Watching You" by @BryanLunduke@mastodon.rocks
FOR THE RECORD... I already have an amazing tinfoil top hat.
The early web had what was in retrospect an astonishing degree of transparency, it took very little effort for anybody to become a web developer -- this isn't an argument for its etymology but I wouldn't be half surprised if "web developer" came to be coined as a kind of intermediate tier between "computer user" and "programmer", what with HTML being a markup language, making room in the engineers' office for people without STEM backgrounds but stopping short of granting them peer status.
Still looking into grabbing a GnuBee. Really glad they've met their funding goals.
If you're looking into buying a NAS, GnuBee is worth considering.
If you enjoy typing and would like to try a fun typing game...
Free Software is based on the premise that some percentage of consumers can contribute back and share their changes.
Contributing requires skilled consumers.
Given a long enough time, and a trend towards increased computer literacy, I see a stronger Free Software community as an inevitability.
In the mean time, we need to focus on increasing the conversion rate.
