Instance admin just lost their job, might need help is one of the largest and nicest instances on the Fediverse, run by an enthusiastic admin called @stux

Unfortunately Stux has today found out that they are fired from their day job 😞

However, by happy coincidence, Stux had just set up a hosting company. If you need web hosting, domain names etc please consider using Stuxhost so that Stux can continue working:

Another task off the list. Moved back from keepassxc to password-store. Keepass has proven to be too much clicking for quick use and lacks good search. Passmenu is much better choice.

I've also crossed another one on an impulse. While trying to sync one config file between my machines and having too much merge conflicts to fix. Moved all to GNU Stow. That one was waiting on my TODO for ~4 years...

Since I missed replicate yt-dl and get your account banned train. I've finally removed my GH account. One thing less on my TODO.

Many times you read authors complaining about how corporate users are filling up their todos and keep demanding some changes and fixes. Imagine now for a second a world with better understanding of each other in which you put up a release of your hobby free software program not only as a tag in your repo and tar package, but also as a product for sale. Add to it, let's say a year of support and a price that will make you happy to do that.
I've experienced many cases in which companies and institutions would be happy to support developers and projects they use but a donate button simply won't cut it for them.

You want to make free software for a living? Maybe this will help.

I have to say. After writing at frst some scripts and than a handy playbook is the best experience I've ever had. Both to manage my own internet connected devices and to maintain my clients secure access clouds.

In all this "GNU/#Linux world went in a bad direction" debate, that has been going on for some time. I have to admit that installing popular distros has become more like Windows/macOS experience. I keep a list not of a things I have to install on a new system, but a list of things I have to remove or disable to protect my privacy and security. Even in distros like Arch. Maybe in Guix less so.

You remember those coffe capsules? This is how much plastic is inside. In EU it's recyclable as a whole only in two countries, so I'm collecting coffee grounds for my winter home gardening. Those capsules give you half of a small jar of grounds.

A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
