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 , , +, , and switched from to , switched from to , switched from to , started using @matrix for messaging, installed on my phone etc.

Here I come 2019! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ†

I like the new colourful icon down in the left corner, @tom79!

Oh, wait @pixelfed :pixelfed:

I was quite disappointed when I learned that only officially supported .

Resolve, together with , was the main reasons I could finally let go of .

After not being satisfied with the other video editors available for I started looking into Resolve again and thanks to the Linux community I now have it running on !_OS ✌️

Hopefully 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 πŸ™‚

What do you think about watermarks? Show more

TFW Fresh Guitar Strings 😌

Why, oh, why don't I do this more often?!

I'll ask myself the same thing the next time I put on fresh strings... in 2020 πŸ˜…

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.

A rough test of the drum sampler I put together last weekend πŸ₯

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 πŸ˜•

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! πŸ€”

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! πŸ™ƒ

I'm going to sample this sound and put it in a track 🀘😎

I had the pleasure of house sitting for two Chinchillas last month, but how do you describe a Chinchilla?

All the adorable small animals merged into the cutest little creature you can imagine! 😍

I've been messing around with today. It's not the most intuitive virtual amp I've tried, but it's free, so I'm not complaining!

Hopefully I can dial in a tone I'm happy with, but I need a bit more time with it first 😏🎸

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

Thanks for the warm welcome! I didn't expect such engagement on my first somewhat silly toot 😊

Let me do a proper 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 .

Toot you later alle... phant! :mastohi:
