TuxJam 89 - Crushing Rocks is out. @kevie @mcnalu and @thelovebug take a look at Snikket, Solus Linux and the usual mix of ccmusic tuxjam.otherside.network/tuxja

Did my first session on today, worked a total of 5 contacts. Four of them were from a local high point, reaching between 20 and 38 miles away, with an aerial on the car roof. The other was on the handheld whilst walking through town, 33 miles away! Great success!

Foundation Exam taken. Just waiting for my Candidate Number from RSGB so I can apply for my licence and callsign.

Oh, PTT button... you are within reach!

Hey @nextcloud (and Admins), remember the security alert back in October 2019 about nginx and php-fpm?

Two things:
1. Everytime I get rid of those pesky notifications, they come back multiple times.
2. I run the Nextcloud snap, which doesn't even use nginx.

Help!

TuxJam 88 is out. In this episode @kevie @mcnalu & @thelovebug look at KaOS, ScreenCam and take a look back at the March Podcrawl. As well as the usual mix of tuxjam.otherside.network/tuxja

So, @Moosical and I have recently gotten into foreign language drama (The Bridge, The Investigation, Rebecka Martinsson, Man In Room 301, etc - all highly recommended, btw). We've just started watching The Valhalla Murders on Netflix, which is dubbed into English as standard.

We switched back to Icelandic, as the dubbing of the original detaches from what's actually going on. You don't get impact or emotion of the dialogue when it's dubbed into a different language. Foreign with subs πŸ‘

Just finished recording TuxJam episode 88. This is WAY past my bedtime. Goodnight all

Good morning all As a new working week begins let us start with an optimistic mind and a positive attitude. Let's look out for others, after a year of lockdown people are going to be affected. Make sure that they know you care about them

At 18:00 UTC (a little over 90 minutes from now), virtual will start once more! Join us as we spend an evening (or morning, afternoon, or night) with some good chat and good drink (whatever that may be).

All of the detail of where to go can be found here:

All are welcome!

Good morning all this weekend please make sure that you take care of yourself. Take a rest from work and (if possible) try and get out in the fresh air to clear your head and stretch your legs. Always look out for others, but don't forget to take care of yourselves too

:boost_ok: :ablobcatwave: Please boost this post if you would like the EFF to join the fediverse. :ablobcatbongo:

In a survey the EFF sent me, I suggested they create an account on the fediverse, so they can reach more supporters and support innovative free software that promotes interoperability among platforms, something they've advocated for in the past, too.

If you can boost this post, maybe I'll be able to show them that there are quite a few users who would like them here!

The EFF is the infamous nonprofit organisation that fights for privacy, government transparency, and digital freedom. Their fight is very important, and the EFF is very special to me. https://www.eff.org/about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_Frontier_Foundation

You can see some of their work here https://www.eff.org/work

In the meantime, you can follow @eff, which is an unofficial mirror of their Twitter.

@ray of course. That's what schools are for :) - there should be no proprietary software in public schools. None. National education bodies should put some of the money they currently waste on licenses for proprietary software on funding usability improvements in the FOSS software. The rest they should invest in helping teachers develop better digital skills.

I'm entering the deep, dark world of . I've bought a portable device ( UV-5RTP), the Foundation License Manual, joined the (), joining my local , and monitoring local frequencies for chatter. All I need is for my local Society to open their doors again, and I can take the Foundation course and book my exam.

@SolusSpider @thelovebug @mcnalu glad that you made that discovery πŸ˜‚ welcome to the community of listeners

Discovered #TuxJam today.
Been chatting to @thelovebug on #TheBugcast
Shout-out to fellow Scots @kevie and @mcnalu
BTW, I am killer on Extreme Tux Racer, but was hopeless with Tux Rider on my Galaxy Note 5.

@thelovebug
I thoroughly enjoyed the show.

My "better late than never" comment didn't hold true for the Podcrawl. I hope it went well. I'll definitely try to make the next one.

Wood Hitch was really good, too.

From the "better late than never" files...

These extra few days off at New Year (not back at work until Tuesday) are allowing me to catch-up with a few interests.

Right now, I'm settling down with a coffee, and listening to the festive TuxJam episode. Festive is fine, as I'm still on holiday.
