@Purism - What if I want to support purism with some extra $, should I just wait until the price increase? :p

Seriously though, I have to hold on to my money for the time being or else I'd ordered. It doesn't bother me that much giving a bit extra money to purism when the time comes :)

My New Year's resolution for 2019 is to be more , play more , make more , capture more and and of course share it on and .

First I wanted to make a personal website that could link to my creative endeavours though:

It's the first website I've made so I kept it simple, but I'm pretty proud of it, haha!

The next step is to announce on that I won't be uploading videos there anymore!

I say why on my website 😎

I've been running this for a little while on my Nexus 6P. It's quite nice except for the fact that it doesn't recognise my simcard :p

@madrox - Me too! It would also be cool to run my own instance sometime. Not sure if I'd be able to set it up though :P

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†

@mxlinux - Sounds good!

I'm considering putting MX Linux on my ASUS ZenBook Pro UX501VW (running Windows 10).

Are there any known issues with that machine and MX, or do you think it'll be fine?

@fredmbarros - Haha, I think I'd be able to figure it out, but it would probably take me a couple of weeks πŸ˜…

It's one of those things that I'd need a real kick in the butt to actually do, but I take comfort in that it's at least an option. That's more than can be said about the more established social platforms 😊

@fredmbarros @unfa - It's still in beta, so it's not quite there yet. Compared to the YouTube alternatives I've looked into, it's the one with the most potential by far though.

I think it'll need a year or two more of development before being a *real* alternative, but you made that video over a year ago Unfa! At that time the app and protocol were barely working! πŸ˜‚

Definitely have another look now, way more polished and robust. Still needs a comments section etc, but that's planned for 2019 :)

@fredmbarros - I tried to register, but a name squatter had taken what I'd like to have as a username -_-

I prefer the UI of Mastodon so I think I'll just stick with it. It's not perfect, but it's way better than Birdsite and co!

Hopefully I can fire up my own Mastodon server in the future to be in full control of my content. That's way above my technical level though, so I would have to do a lot of reading to make that happen πŸ˜‹

I have faith in @Curator so I'm not too worried πŸ™ƒ

@fredmbarros - Interesting, I'll check it out. I quite like Mastodon, it's a step forward, but I'd like to be even more in control of my content.

@unfa - If you want to distribute your videos and music with free and open source software too, I recommend LBRY.

It allows you to to put a price on your content if you don't want to give it away for free or if you publish free content there's a tip button where people can pay what they want.

For more info: lbry.io
Let me know what you think :)

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

Oh, wait @pixelfed :pixelfed:

@Gargron - Ah, so that's why the comments wouldn't load. I still have the video loaded in a tab :P

I'll ask him to sync his channel to LBRY so his videos can still be accessed when removed from YouTube ;)

@alexl @celesteh - It's a block. He's posting about not having time to argue with people who are snug about their ignorance. Oh, the irony!

I think this is a case of cognitive dissonance. He's a perfect example of what the article I linked to pointed out. Most of us simply aren't willing to compromise the entitlement of eating meat, so we pretend that the idea of a worldwide shift to a plant-based diet is simply too ridiculous to contemplate. π‘‡β„Žπ‘Žπ‘‘'𝑠 𝑖𝑓 𝑀𝑒 𝑒𝑣𝑒𝑛 π‘Žπ‘π‘˜π‘›π‘œπ‘€π‘™π‘’π‘‘π‘”π‘’ π‘‘β„Žπ‘’ π‘π‘Ÿπ‘–π‘ π‘–π‘  π‘Žπ‘‘ π‘Žπ‘™π‘™.
