Seen the hype. Read some reviews. Installed @MXLinux and guess what...really impressed. Within minutes of installing had #kdenlive running and edited a video with my brother. Layout logical, clear, straightforward.
Never come across this before - and last year we passed despite explicitly stating no antivirus on linux machines.
Assessors are #iasme
Anybody else come across this?
Mastodon usually has a dark theme by default, but you can switch to a light theme or high contrast theme if you prefer.
Go to Preferences > Appearance > Site Theme, choose the one you want and click "Save Changes".
Some instances have additional themes too. Ask your admin if you want more themes added.
Welcome to #Mastodon, here are couple tricks:
- find the content to follow, no company is shoving content into your face here
- initially check as many profiles as you can and follow if you enjoy their toots
- https://joinmastodon.org/communities lists instances
- /about page of each instance has "Discover users" + "what's happening": great way to find profiles to follow.
- click on "star" if you enjoyed the post, "boost" if you want your followers to enjoy it too
- block spammy accounts right away
Thank you to everyone who bought something this weekend!
I haven't talked about it much here, but on my @matt blog I've mentioned that Write.as finally became modestly profitable earlier this year. It's only enough to sustain a single full-time developer (me), but it means I can keep building this, @writefreely, and our other projects indefinitely.
This is a reminder that Scottish 🏴 snow plows have all the best names, and can be tracked live here:

@onepict @freedcreative @alcinnz @shahaan we need to focus on educating our national education policy makers (in NZ, it's our Ministry of Education) to recognise that a) the status quo is counter-productive (and expensive, and exclusionary), and b) a relatively small investment in FOSS would pay major dividends for our society, by creating a generation of people who aren't crippled with Learned Helplessness - I've written about it here: https://davelane.nz/explainer-digitech-risks-school-boards and here https://davelane.nz/different-approach-digital-technology-schools
