@SolusSpider Praying for you, my friend. This has been going on for a while now, I hope answers are coming.

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‘

@kevie Cheers, sir. I've just finished my last Redchurch Out Of The Dark Imperial Stout. A sad moment, indeed. 🍺🍻

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.

@SolusSpider you should give KISS Launcher (F-Droid) and/or Niagara Launcher (Google Play, not FOSS) a try. They're both amazing in their own way, and I keep bouncing between them.

Thanks, @gmoretti! 😁. I already have the basics through electronics and my previous experience with CB radio in 70s thru 90s. This is a nice challenging progression into the more serious side of amateur radio, rather than just picking up a microphone and speaking.

Thanks for this, @ken_fallon... I've booked in a course with EssexHam 😁

@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.
