Note to anyone who would like to block #TheresLife:
Please discuss the issue with me first so that we can discuss the problem. I would not want all of the members here to be unable to participate with your instance simply because of a minor disagreement or because of just one or two of our users.
I figured I should write a pinned #introductions post so that when people find me from another instance they actually see something on my profile (psst. find more at https://theres.life/@masterofthetiger).
I am also a #computer programmer. Not as a job, of course, but I work on projects as hobbies.
I'm collaborating with @adama to try to start a computer consultancy/tech support service.
You can pay us to:
- Fix your computer and improve performance/security
- Build a website (frontend + backend)
- Write any kind of software (low-level or high-level)
- Help you with Linux server administration (security, DevOps, performance etc.)
We'll work for free if you're a nonprofit or activist etc.
Fill in the contact form on our website if you're interested.
Just a quick reminder that Free and Open Source Software isn't a competition among ourselves.
We're fighting against those who would co-opt general purpose computing.
It doesn't matter if you're on the BSD side or the Linux side, or if you believe that KDE is great or that GNOME is amazing (or prefer a tiling window manager). We're all on the same side.
We're at our best when we link our arms together and say in a clear voice, you'll have to pass through all of us to overcome all of us.
"Chrome for Android may soon send notifications reminding you to use Chrome"
When the 71% total browser market share is not enough and you have to resort to spam and tricks to squeeze a couple percent more...
We are starting to use C more for our Bible software. See our progress here:
Did you know you can export your Mastodon Follows and other things as simple text files? That way if your instance dies, you can simply join another one and import those backups.
It's in your Preferences under 'Import and export'.
I thought I'd mention it, since I often forget to do it for too long.
Anybody use #TiddlyWiki? I want to search for a phrase, and all the help I find is way over my head, technical. Putting it in quotation marks (e.g., "Dt 20") doesn't work. What's the secret? Why so complicated?
COVID-19, comparison of symptoms to the cold, the flu, and allergies
This might be useful to some: the Oklahoma State Department of Health put out this useful infographic comparing COVID-19 to other ailments that may look like it. Someone should transcribe this for me to help others, I'm lower on spoons than I usually am, and I'm usually out of spoons.
As always contact local resources for more information on COVID.
Have you discussed with your children, who may be e-learning for the first time, ways to protect their online privacy?
Are you talking with them about password management and best practices?
Do you help them disable location services and unneeded microphone or camera access?
Are they being mindful of videos they post in group chats or apps?
I just want to make sure I am not messing up anything.
