A quick for .

I've been dabbling in the Fediverse for ages with accounts on identi.ca, diaspora, friendica, gnu social & eventually Mastodon.

I love the community here & even though I might not post all that frequently, I love interacting with the wide range of users here.

This account is my 'personal' account, so plenty of / / / thoughts posts.

@lazylinux is my place for all my Linux posts & @merkaba is for all my programming.

Listen to an audio book. There are lots of public domain ones here: librivox.org/

Patrick Willems has some *excellent* takes on why it’s so hard to end a trilogy.

His videos are great for studying narratives in movies.

Using #Foliate in a #Fedora 34 VM and I’m loving it. It’s the perfect EPUB reader solution for me on Linux. 📚

I joined the Fediverse when I was in middle school. I first started hosting a Mastodon instance when in high school.

This made me wonder the age of others when they first joined this network.

So here's a poll:

How old were you all when you first joined the #Fediverse?

Reading audiobooks is still reading.

If you say you read an audiobook you don't have to "correct" yourself. I'd argue that you /shouldn't/, that you'd get less correct.

There's no need to say "well no I didn't read it" if it was an audiobook. There's no need to put "reading" in scare quotes.

It's reading just as much as reading print is.

I know there are worse problems, but it sucks having my favored reading format denigrated by sighted people, even to the point of them denying it's "real."

Enjoying this little game where you "just" have to avoid accepting the terms and conditions 😈 termsandconditions.game/

Element is still extremely frustrating to use as an end user. Lost access to encrypted messages, so all the chats and rooms I’m in are just filled with encrypted messages I can no longer unlock 🤷

A quick reintroduction to follow the celebrations today for the Fediverse.

I'm a Linux and FOSS enthusiast that's dabbled in writing, education and the open source community.

@lazylinux is my outlet for all my thoughts and experiences tied to the world of #Linux and #BSD, with some general #tech thoughts thrown in for good measure.

Currently, running :archlinux: and :debian: with KDE Plasma and XFCE respectively.

#Fediverse13 is a great time as any to post an #introduction, along with everyone else's #reintroduction posts.

I'm a #Linux and #FOSS enthusiast that's finally gotten into #programming, #python and a slew of other paths of study.

While I run @lazylinux for all my Linux musings, this account is going to be focused on my personal experiences with my actual journey of learning Python with an eye towards getting deeper into programming.

Recent pick up at a local book store. A nice mix of pulpy Stephen King, philosophical design and creativity. 📚

I just discovered librespeed.org which is a free and open source internet connection speed test service. Sorry speedtest.net, nothing personal but if it's #foss I just can't resist it. Bye!
