Pinned toot

@web dev ops vets. What's your SSG recommendation for these specs:

#1 flat filed content (no db)
#2 flexible themes, easy to edit
#3 github.com/TryGhost/Ghost compatible
#4 or another headless CMS as good...rich text editor, image upload and scaling as minimum
#5 multilanguage module for published content
#6 OAuth compatible
#7 simple beginner friendly scripting engine, as easy edit- and readable as PHP f.ex.
# 8 mature community and docs
# 9 any open source license

Lenovo certifies all desktop and mobile workstations for Linux – and will even upstream driver updates

“Our entire portfolio of ThinkStation and ThinkPad P Series workstations will now be certified via both Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Ubuntu LTS – a long-term, enterprise-stability variant of the popular Ubuntu Linux distribution,” said a Tuesday statement from GM and executive director of the company’s workstation and client AI group Rob Herman.
Lenovo is serious about this: the company says its workstations will “offer full end-to-end support – from security patches and updates to better secure and verify hardware drivers, firmware and bios optimizations.” Lenovo will also upstream device drivers into the Linux kernel.

just struck me, as my fav senior citizens upgraded TV and wondered what to do with the old 40"...that all that real estate might be helpful to them plugged into the laptop with smtg like userbase.kde.org/Plasma#Activi to handle app launch and placement

they spend soooo much time just switching from mail to web and back again and where's the file explorer now it was here a second ago...(whatever they call it in UX lingo)

auto activity launcher could save a lot of effort and confusion for them

#Linux

Hey people of the fediverse!
Does anyone know a good task/todo application for linux which is able to handle caldav tasks?

I would prefer something based on GTK3 and being a standalone application - maybe also a selfhostable webapp as alternative.

Right now, I am using Evolution for this, but if often hangs, does not sync properly or just chrashes when switching between mail, calendar and tasks.

Here's an old episode of Linux Unplugged podcast about JACK and PipeWire audio servers. If you're into audio on Linux - you'd probably be well served to listen to that.

Can any #linux users give me a hand with something I want to test? You'll need at least one USB 3.0 port and a USB 2.0 hub, and won't take you long.

A 9$ computer that runs linux, hand held, full qwerty keyboard, and a touch screen... I think I need to get this!

Choosing 2FA authenticator apps can be hard - Yes Authy still beats Google Authenticator

An interesting round up by Ars Technica and shows the pros and cons of the various second factor authentications apps. Google's may be well known but it is still playing catch up to Authy. Authy works wherever Google Authenticator does so don't think you need to use the Google one when a Google Authenticator option is given - you just have to go through the process once to link Authy in place of the Google Authenticator app, then you use Authy after that.

After over a year of work – and as we’re getting closer to the next release of Site.js – I think I’m now comfortable enough to start giving the project and the organisation a bit more visibility so I’ve just mirrored the main repositories on GitHub. We will be using those for issues and pull requests in the future.
