Happy New year to my FOSS friends.
2018 was a great year! Especially with Mastodon in the mix and my interactions with you all here.
Cheers!

I sincerely hope that 2019 is the year of the Linux Desktop ;) #FOSS #HappyNewYear

I have been completely removed from Facebook for a full year. It has been the best year in recent memory. OBSERVATIONS:

1) I'm still "connected" to current events. I'm just not bombarded with a thousand "rage-bait" rants about it.

2) I'm still connected with everyone that matters. We've shared the responsibility of staying in touch. Sometimes it's on me to reach out, sometimes it's on them. The people who haven't kept up with me, were just a relationship of ceremony and convenience.

3) I'm substantially less depressed. Surprising no one, I guess. It didn't cure depression, but it alleviated that which it brought: A lot.

4) I'm still super social online. I have community here and a few other places. We do things together, and don't just try to whip ourselves into a fury.

5) I've gained a meaningful perspective: *MY* perspective. Getting away from the manipulative pieces of those social media sites has given me enough clarity to be, well... "me."

YMMV

Anyone know of an ActivityPub powered Facebook alternative?
never really took off in mainstream it seems.

"We found that at least 61 percent of apps we tested automatically transfer data to Facebook the moment a user opens the app. This happens whether people have a Facebook account or not, or whether they are logged into Facebook or not."

Question regarding @pixelfed: Is it possible as a user, to create private albums that only I can see?

So my home server died on my last night (corrup filesystem), so I have been thinking hard if the server is actually required here at home.
Concluded that it's not, but I still want a few "nice-to-haves" like a server.

So I'm gonna try and set that up, in a way that is very easy to recover if something balls up again!

Watched yesterday with the wife. Pleasently surprised. Probably the second best movie to date, right after Wonder Woman.

Time for another teaser.

I have been working on a way to install directly on an SD/eMMC card with a form of netinstaller.

And I am proud to say that its getting there.

The goal is to have a script that installs current packages, directly to the card, from ANY Linux distro!

I have tried to keep the dependencies to basic unix software.

So far, tests are going great!
