I understand the need for security training. I also understand the need to refresh this.

But I really wish I could skip watching hours of painful videos and just prove to the online test that I still know not to use "password" as my password.

Test Question: You get an email that says "Dear FIRSTNAME, I am CEO of UR COMPANY and plaze you must sends me iTunes gift crads now!!!1"

Do you:
* send the gift cards
* wipe the drool off of your keyboard and _then_ send the gift cards
* not be an idiot

@[email protected] Oh, gnome-tweaks and dconf-editor and I are all old friends.

I'm just miffed that things like renaming online accounts have to be done via editing ~/.config/goa-1.0/accounts.conf.

There's a field for the display name in there, but apparently letting users put "Personal" and "Work" in a box somewhere is scary and confusing so we should stick with "[email protected]" as the display name when mounting network drives.

(I miss original Unity.)

@[email protected] I'm pretty happy with it so far in the ~week I've used it.

I have had to hack around a few things to get them to work the way I want. (It's based on GNOME which insists that Apple doesn't go far enough with hiding configuration.)

But overall it feels more like Ubuntu used to -- fast, sensible defaults, nicely laid out, and making it easy to extend and add more functionality. It also ships with the option to use a tiling WM by default, which I need to play with more.

@fribbledom I am in total awe of the number of awesome things you build and/or contribute to. You are amazing!

Really excited for FediDB, its something I wish existed when I started Pixelfed.

I hope it helps bring fediverse developers closer together and encourages greater compatibility across implementations!

@fribbledom How do I nominate languages and how do I get Forth onto the list? :D

In today's episode of "WTF Am I Doing With My Life", I'm running Pop!_OS on my laptop, connecting to a server in my basement running Ubuntu, on which I'm running a virtual machine of Haiku, itself a reimplementation of BeOS, on which I'm currently installing a DOS emulator.

This is either an interesting art project or a cry for help. I'm not sure which.

After almost a year of development, I am happy to announce #FediDB will be launching to the public this weekend!

Building ActivityPub applications will be much easier with FediDB.

Special thanks to @NGIZero for funding development of this project!

@fribbledom so I would not really describe launchpad as "easy" but put into context next to git... it's not so bad?

Occasionally I torture myself by looking at real estate in areas that are much cheaper than Boston (where I live). Sometimes this means I get to see hilarity in staging.

Anyone who knows American Sign Language (or can fingerspell) should check out the sculpture in the background of this picture.

Spoiler: it says "LOV💩"

R.M. boosted is seeing a big traffic spike for the past 24 hours, but I haven't got the slightest clue where it's coming from...

Thanks anyway 😄

AWS managed service for Grafana and Prometheus announced today! Very excited to see these tools made easier to access for AWS users!

Basically this makes an X or Wayland system into a multi-seat terminal server surprisingly easily. After having done this once, I think I could scale it out to a ton of seats really quickly.

Why anyone felt the need to *build* this after, say, 1985 or so is beyond me. But it is cool regardless!

Today I learned about `loginctl` which, as expected, controls Linux logins. It's not quite as well documented as I'd like, but after tinkering with it for a while I've done some very cool stuff.

I put two NVidia cards into a 2U server and used `loginctl` to associate each one with an automatic login session in lightdm (plus one non-autologin session with the built-in VGA hardware). So without creating an xorg.conf at all, this system runs an X session for each card plus Steam to stream games!
