The #FreeSoftware movement needs more artists! It needs more graphic designers, UI/UX peeps, people who can draw, people who have a good eye for beauty and usability, people who can design logos, etc.
*ALL* the artistic people are important to the Free Software movement
As of right now most free software tends to be ugly and difficult for newcomers to use. It tends to have weird looking logos or hideous ancient looking color schemes. Artists are the solution. #FreeSW has the coding down, design is next.
@acw I don't know much about hardware compatibility. Hint: if you'll choose a #Linux distro which is too new then you might have problema with #CUDA compilers - once my gcc was too new even for the latest CUDA toolchain. Hint2: Distributed trainings (a network of machines instead of one pc) are getting more and more popular recently - I am not sure if it is reasonable in your case however.
LPT: don't file an issue report that starts with "add an option to". Describe your issue instead. Let the dev and design teams discuss possible solutions. Most of the time it's not necessary to add another option and we can make the behavior better for everyone

Please do not use #Mastodon to communicate privately or think it's secure. Use Signal, Wire.com, XMPP, Matrix.org, Tox.chat, or your preferred choice.
Toots are not stored encrypted & you also may not know the server's policy where you're @'ing someone if it's not your home Mastodon server/instance & can't confirm deletion.
I only use DM to not flood timelines & to keep a public conversation between A, B, C...
Want to make a huge contribution to Mastodon adoption?
Create and maintain a Debian package for Mastodon. If you know anyone fluent in making and maintaining Debian packages, please share this with them. Let’s reduce the complexity of installing Mastodon on Debian-based distributions (e.g., Ubuntu) down to running a single command and watch the instance numbers shoot up! :)

Now, it makes a lot of sense! 😈
