I can't move to the Fediverse properly until I reproduce my famous pinned post from the birdsite, so here it is:
P.S.A. To all vintage computer and video game collectors:
Go through your collections and GET THE DAMN BATTERIES OUT!
Now! Don't wait! Seriously, put down the phone, go to your collection and take out all the batteries. Right now! Even if they look "okay" they are NOT SAFE after this much time.
As a non-Adobe user, and a non-O365 user, I would welcome both popular software sets onto the Linux desktop space.
If nothing else, imagine the software centers showing folks the proprietary Adobe, and then next to it, the FOSS editors which won't charge them monthly. Imagine the new possibilities for discovery, right there!
I've seen some criticisms of proprietary software in Flathub/Snap/etc.
I get it- I prefer to use FOSS when possible, too. But if making popular tools available increases adoption, in my opinion, that only helps the community grow in the long run.
I can't tell you how many comments I've read saying "I'd use Linux if not for Adobe". If Adobe joined Flathub, it'd bring **some** folks in. They could discover FOSS alternatives after a bit. Linux would grow! That's good!
Are there any Masto accounts like CompAesthetics on Twitter?
I want to see pictures of random people's nerd setups.
Hah! I knew if I was lazy enough, for long enough, eventually Google would relent and let me use G-Suite Legacy for free!
Genuinely happy to see so many of my local council wards flipping from Conservative to Labour. Only a third of the council is up for re-election so changing overall control was never realistically on the cards, but with a couple of marginal wards left to declare Labour have already taken a massive chunk out of the Tory majority.
