@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 :)
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 #YouTube 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

SOME DUSTY OLD BOOK ON THE FREE MARKET: see, it's flawless, any business that tries to pull harmful shit will be exposed and then shunned by the public, so we expect all business under the free market to be honest, fair, and serving the greater good of humanity
FOLKS IN 2019: yeah idk man Google and Amazon have their fingers in every part of my life but my phone's pretty easy to use and has nice colors in it so ehhhh whatever man
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! 🎉🎆
@king I'm open for challenges!
@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 😅
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 😊
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! 😂
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 😋
I have faith in @Curator so I'm not too worried 🙃
@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 :)
@apertus - matrix.org
@forteller - I use gthumb for that.
@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 ;)
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.
