RT @DrImmySmith@twitter.com: Same, but for visual artists. We deserve to get paid, & we need to promote our work to do that 😐

If you enjoy seeing our art on social media, accept we got bills, & that you'll see promo tweets sometimes. twitter.com/bhvide/status/1019

Once again, I had to explain to someone that the first draft of what they're
isn't meant to be perfect. The first draft is for getting your ideas down on paper. Then, you do the serious work of expanding, rewriting, reworking, and editing.

Show me a writer who punches out a perfect first draft and I'll show you someone who's either the greatest writer ever or a liar

Day two of using my powered Nexus 5 as my main phone showed me that most of the apps you think you rely on, you can do without. It's nice to have a lean, more focused phone for a change.

Day 2 of using my Ubuntu Touch-powered phone as my main phone. One thing I'm noticing is battery usage. Started yesterday with 97% and am now in the low 50% range. Need to look into that.

Still adapting to the keyboard. It's different from the AnySoft keyboard I'm used to using on Android. Another small habit switch

The first day of using my Nexus 5 running Ubuntu Touch went well (as I expected it to). I needed to slip out of a few habits, and I found a couple of small things with a couple of apps.

Overall, though, it didn't take too much effort to adapt to Ubuntu Touch. Then again, it's not my first time around the block with it

Looks like cross posting between Mastodon and via @crossposter is working again ...

Look at what magically appeared at Opensource.com: an article by me, looking at 3 modes for taking notes opensource.com/article/18/7/em

A 'universal' laptop dock that doesn't support Linux (or Mac for that matter) is hardly universal, is it?

Today is the start of a little experiment: using my Ubuntu Touch-powered phone as my main phone for the next few days.

I don't see that being a problem, if only because I'm not constantly on my phone. But it's time to see if I can actually adapt to using it day to day
