Happy New Year Fediverse!
It's still a few hours left until midnight here, but I went ahead and fulfilled my new years resolution of 2018: To get off all privacy violating services.
This year I've deleted #Facebook, #Twitter, #Google+, #Snapchat, #Strava and switched from #Microsoft #Windows to #Linux, switched from #Gmail to #ProtonMail, switched from #Chrome to #Firefox, started using @matrix for messaging, installed #LinageOS on my phone etc.
Here I come 2019! 🎉🎆
Hopefully #Blackmagic will extend their official support to more distributions with time, it's so good!
I've been trying to figure out how to do this watermark thing today.
@eishiya recommended to have a URL in it, but it was difficult to have it be visible in the photo without sticking out like a distracting sore thumb.
I think I'll go with something like this unless anyone has a better idea 🙂
What do you think about watermarks? Show more
Personally, I'm not a fan, but I've also had photos of mine re-posted with no credits.
I made this little thing that I'm considering putting in the corner of the photos I post online, but I'd like a couple of opinions on why I should/shouldn't do it.
I feel it discourages people to re-upload as their own. I know there are tools to remove watermarks, but at the very least then I can see if the uploader is deliberately trying to hide that the content is stolen.
How to use 'Night Light' properly:
1. As soon as you notice the display shifting to an awful yellow tint, turn off Night Light by pressing 'Disable Until Tomorrow'.
2. Continue as you were.
3. At 00:00 the display will suddenly turn yellow which will remind you that you should've been in bed already, go to bed quickly.
Repeat every day.
As none of the commercial drum samplers support Linux, this Sunday was spent on manually adding over 3000 drum samples to the new sampler in Bitwig Studio 2.4. Anything to have realistic sounding acoustic drums!
My Logitech MX Master mouse had enough it seems as the sensor just went to permanent sleep. No warranty either 😕
Any mouse recommendations out there? I'd actually prefer to go back to a corded one, but I also want to have a horizontal scroll wheel! 🤔
Current setup 😎
When I stop and think about it, it completely blows my mind that this is all you need to make "radio ready" music today.
A generation ago this was only possible in musician's wildest dreams.
It's easy to take it for granted, so sometimes I have to remind myself how extremely privileged I am for living in this day and age. Not to mention how lucky I am for having been born in a first world country.
The least I can do is to be appreciative about it! 🙃
Literally the cutest!
Feelin' good vibes today 😘
I've been living on the edge lately. After switching from Windows to Linux I decided to format my backup drives to change file system, but then I didn't make new backups... Show more
My sleep should go back to normal now 🙃
Thanks for the warm welcome! I didn't expect such engagement on my first somewhat silly toot 😊
Let me do a proper #introduction though!
I'm into guitars and music (especially metal), animals and food (unless the former becomes the latter), crypto and technology in general.
I'm in the process of de-googlifying myself + deleting my accounts on birdsite/facesite/instasite etc. I've even switched to Linux recently because #privacy.
Toot you later alle... phant!
