I'm pretty sure this is of no use to anyone other than myself, but I put together a small system to create PDF price quotations:


It's based on , , and and it comes with instructions on how to set it up under .

An example PDF quote is attached! :)

You might want to keep your savings in BTC or ETH, but for small amounts of crypto that you actually spend to pay for stuff, BCH has the best user experience, by far. Zero worries about fees. None. Transactions are fast. You can mix/fuse coins easily. Widely accepted crypto.

If you're currently on a massive server like mastodon.social, you might want to consider moving your account to a smaller server.

You can keep your followers when you change servers, here's how to do it: mstdn.social/@feditips/1079394

You can find reliable servers at joinmastodon.org/communities (all the servers listed there agree to the covenant at joinmastodon.org/covenant). Try to pick one with fewer people.

There are lots of good things about smaller servers:

-Better moderation, because there are more staff per member.

-Smaller servers tend to have more personality, with a village feel.

-The local timeline on smaller servers is much more readable.

-Smaller servers protect the Fediverse as a whole from being taken over, because lots of smaller servers are harder to buy than a few big servers.

-It's easier to make a difference on smaller servers. It's easier to discuss things with the admin and other members.

I'm in the EU right now. This gets zero attention in the news.

EU: privacy is a fundamental human right

Also EU: we're going to encourage tech companies to automatically & indiscriminately scan all your private messages, chats, and emails for suspicious content

False alarm everyone, turns out 20.04 LTS upgrades are disabled by default until 22.04.1 is released, and it's scheduled for August. I don't feel like being Canonical's lab rat today, so I will wait patiently. Looking forward to installing and start playing with it!

I'm going to upgrade my Kubuntu 20.04 LTS to 22.04 LTS. If you don't hear from me in 3 hours alert the geek squad! 🤓

If you don't know yet about cheats.rs, you definitely should - this is super handy!


Oh wow, the European Union 🇪🇺 now has its own official Mastodon instance!

So you just arrived here from twitter and it's quiet. Real quiet. That's because there's no algorithm here designed to drive engagement(which equals profit).

Here, you are the algorithm. It's up to you to find and follow people that are interesting to you. You can also see who they follow and who else follows them, as you build it up, it gets more interesting.

Also, if you find people you don't like or entire instances you don't like, you can mute or block them. You are in control.

The threshold for discoverability on Mastodon is pretty high, so be generous about boosting other people. Sometimes you're the signal, and sometimes you're the path the signal takes through the noise.

Inspired by @janneke, I'm posting my paella, a Sunday family tradition. 🥘
