@fribbledom Take it with you for travels and label the world with "@fribbledom was here"
@fribbledom Love the WS28* LEDs and projects using them. Have a meaningless Mastodon favourite from me ☺
I just installed and tested Facebook and WhatsApp bridges for #Matrix. Finally my family won't complain about not being able to reach me *and* I don't have to install any extra apps on my phone.
@Gargron are you the "Myspace Tom" of Mastodon?
@Gargron Sorry if I sounded negative, I am just amazed that this goes against everything I was taught about releasing software (especially one used by a lot of people), and yet it still seems to work great for you! 🙂
Reasons someone using a PC should change from Windows to Linux?
Linux distros have more respect for your privacy.
Just run Wireshark on both Windows and Linux; you'll see that Windows loves to constantly chat with MS-servers.
Average Linux distro is completely silent until you choose to interact with the internet.

Linux gives you control & transparency. Easier and more secure usage.

Does anyone have a simple guide on how to follow some folks on https://people.kernel.org/ on Mastodon? Is it even supported?
After a ton of attempts with setting up multiple device VPN with #wireguard, I had to settle on one-interface/config-per-device. I just could not make this work any other way. Fortunately now I can actually do some routing on top of my point-to-point mesh.
