This week I decided to stop actively using Twitter and Facebook so much. I blocked the domains from my router so there is still some barrier to gaining access.
I just found myself getting angry at everything this past year every time I viewed these sites.
Instead, I'll use them exclusively as syndication platforms.
If you or someone you know are looking for a new opportunity as a Senior Software Developer with a focus on JS/Node/React – GoDaddy is currently hiring.
Come join my team! We've accomplished so much in the past year with our small agile team but we need more devs to attain all of our goals.
Purchased a PineTime Dev Kit. It's fascinating, cheap, and I wanted a new device to hack on 😀
People used to own their own websites in the pre-social media phase.
The ISP model was web hosting. Everyone would be a publisher. Everyone would have their own website.
Now the model is: you provide the content for someone else's website, for free. You don't own it, and it is used for a comprehensive surveillance system like the world has never seen to not only observe, but to manipulate and influence your affect and conduct. It is aggregated and used by every government and large corp.
Things I learned today: Multi-Seat setup on Debian.
Because of how Linux user sessions work, I thought there must be a way to hook up two monitors, two sets of keyboard & mice, and split the displays between Intel integrated graphics and my NVidia GPU.
Debian has a guide on it and I was able to set it up so that my son and I could play Minecraft java edition with friends online. Worked like a charm with a standard Debian install (no VM's!)
This is my first step into the #Fediverse. I'm looking forward to learning more about it and meeting new people.
I'm a writer by trade who works for a University as their Web Content Officer.
I run a website called the Worldbuilding School which is all about building imaginary worlds. And I'm writing a collection of Cyberpunk flash fiction with a Retrowave style.
Ran across my old World Of Warcraft installation CD’s and decided to install it on Linux and setup a local private server for fun. CD’s installed WoW 1.11.0 and I found the patches to bring it to 1.12.1.
I found CMaNGOS is very a active project and found it easy to compile and run. I’m so impressed with it. I can even creating other characters on my account that can join a group as bots making it easier to solo play!
I might try The Burning Crusade expansions next :)
An important #Linux phone is getting unveiled tomorrow. The hardware is incredible and the specs don't suck :D
Stay tuned for a video interview when the embargo lifts at 9am Eastern.
Finished consolidating the thousands of photos and videos from the past 12+ years and got it into a manageable state. They are currently stored on my NAS (with Plex), rsync’d to my desktop (because it was easier to sift through on it), and rsync’d to an external drive as a secondary backup.
Next step is offsite backup, probably using Backblaze. Soon I’ll need to update my NAS to a custom built server as well. I’ve been using a WD EX2100 for years but I need moar powah! 😀
