Pinned toot

This morning my Silverblue installs updated with no problems off the beta to F33. First time in a long time, that I haven’t had my heart in my throat doing a release upgrade.

Health Update 

Down 42lbs (19kgs) in 9 weeks. I didn’t think I had the discipline to get this far. I’m exactly half way to my ultimate goal... a weight that I haven’t been at since I was 17.

Interesting. gnome is really slow on my Thinkpad compared to my desktop. Both are AMD Ryzen but the Thinkpad has more RAM and more cores. Both were set up the same according to the FAQ and read_mes.

Any one have an opinion/reason as to why? Should I just try Mate or XFCE? (Though my preference is Gnome)

Hey friends, I have a 240gb nvme drive on my Thinkpad that I’d like to dedicate to OpenBSD.

I recently played around with FDE on my desktop and was successful following the FAQ on the site. I would like to do the same with the Thinkpad.

How can I do that? The FAQ are for the SATA drives. Can I do that with a NVME drive?

Do you use an end to end encrypted email provider? (e.g. protonmail, tutanota etc)

Would love to hear what people use and why? Go on get opinionated 😁

Is there a good open source alternative to SoundCloud?

Apologies for the language. Calmed down now. Still mad at the poor QA of Fedora. One machine down, one more to reinstall.

Have a good Friday night everyone

I find it funny that people are losing their minds back home in Australia over 13 new COVID-19 cases when we have had 200+ for 4 days in a row in Alberta. And that’s with mandatory (ish) masking inside public spaces.

Hey friends!

What are some good infosec related blogs to follow? Looking for both news based and educational type blogs.

A couple of trouble shooting questions for the fediverse:

Does anyone know how to add a second verified email address to their profile? Read the docs and am still a little unsure how to do it?

Also I can’t seem to get rel=‘me’ working with Mastodon and . (@write_as) Followed the stuff on the forum to no avail.

Any ideas?

I’m going to say something possibly controversial:

The world is prejudice against fat people.

I know this because I have dropped 31lbs (14kgs) in 7 weeks and my interactions with people are very different. People are more friendly, respectful and helpful when you aren’t as fat.

We have submitted the official Pixelfed app to the app stores! 🎉 #pixelfed #app

Looking for balanced reputable news sources to follow.

I’m interested in sources that focus on privacy, human rights, and balanced political critique.

Preferably in English.

Trying to be safe and efficient with my tech (if there is such a thing). So today’s question is:

Where do you keep your backups?

If something different or a combination, I’d like to hear why in the comments. Thanks

Enjoying this eating heathy thing. Down 27lbs in 6 weeks. It just goes to show how bad my diet was - lots of junk and self loathing.

Tonight my wife and I made Phở together. Super delicious!

What’s the state of mobile apps (iOS in particular) for and ?

Love how a little googling magic can help fix something that is broken on your system...

Thought I’d poll Mastodon because of this heated discussion from my fitness group this morning.

When do you shower/bathe in your daily routine? (excluding showering after gym etc.)
