hi folks, I have opened my own Mastodon server so I'm migrating my account there. Please follow me on:

I've just bought the domain name and the hosting for my Mastodon server. Stay tuned!

TV shows, #GOT 

I've never followed Game of Thrones, honestly I've watched the first few episode and it felt like a glorified soap opera.

Instead I've just finished the first season of Fleabag on the BBC and it's very well done and entertaining.

I'd like to buy a small cheap but good laptop to experiment with some GNU distros. Any suggestions?

I looked at lenovos but I'm not really sure about the models.

I like System76, Star Labs and especially Librem 14 but they are generally on the expensive side.
Pine64 looks interesting but it's way to cheap, honestly.

So basically I had to ditch completely the idea of installing a GNU distro on my laptop. Mostly because of UEFI and SecureBoot that can't be turned off. Not ideal.

NOPE. Too late for this. Brain not functioning properly. Better wait until tomorrow.

Good night.

SO my dreams of getting back on Arch are over for now...too much hassle I can't deal with at the moment. I'll go straight away with Ubuntu like a real noob. at all.

So after something like 10 years I'm trying to install a GNU distro again. Many things are much easier. Somethings are much different. Like UEFI and Secure Boot. WHY?

@Charims I've been an Arch user for a few years in the past. Then due to my design career and proprietary software I have to use daily I moved to Windows and Mac Os. The laptop is mine, I'm a freelancer. I'm just scared about messing it up badly and having to fix it before monday XD

This morning I woke up with this strong desire of installing Arch in dual boot on my work laptop that is running Win 10 with bitlocker encription active on both its hard drives.

Please stop me.

Hello everyone !

📢 🔴 URGENT 🔴

An awesome software is dying, because its #developper has not time anymore to care of it.

It's an alternative of Adobe AfterEffect : Natron (

Please, can Mastodon community search for a C++ dev, which want to maintain it ? or search for a company which work with free software ? It's very important.

Boost very appreciated

Thanks in advance for your contribution !

@steko @Shamar mi chiedo solo come tradurrà l'espressione "a cazzo di cane". XD

I second this. I clicked reply just to say the same thing. DeepL is good.

I haven't talked about it recently, but I do have a lot of TV shows and films available via peertube:

This stuff is important to me, and I like sharing it with everyone.

I have some more stuff coming in the next few weeks too.

rant, work related 

I've spent most of my day trying to key out some footage shot over a a poorly lit white limbo.
I understand the concept of "low budget", but for Christ sake people, get good at your jobs.

I'm seriously thinking about starting a Mastodon instance with a general interest in motion graphics, vfx, animation, etc. I've never been an admin anywhere, though. Any suggestions about it? Is it really hard to deal with people as a server admin? Any pit falls? Tips and tricks? Thanks!

Brexit Plan B

- Quietly Revoke A50
_ Tell Brexiteers we’ve left with “No Deal / WTO”
- Send all Brexiteers Blue Passport covers
- Create special lanes with long delays for UK Blue Passport holders at airports / ports
- Charge them for roaming / data
- Give them food / medicine ration books
- Get on with life

Brexit sorted.
