"A Quiet Afternoon" - A reimagining of a piece I first made in 2020, so I could apply what I've learned since going back into full-time art education

#Art #MastoArt #DigitalArt

Today i logged in to Facebook. It doesn’t happen often.

I saw a post about salaries and retirement, and an angry commenter said below “you have to learn 5 times more for 5 times a salary”.

I haven’t laughed this much in my life. I wonder why i don’t visit that platform more often…

Morning thoughts, unicorns, startup culture 

I think there's a huge desire to find the next unicorn within the UK and Europe and that is to the detriment of our entire tech ecosystem.

We should not be trying to emulate companies that make money out of the capture of millions of accounts and their data.

We should be trying to build an ecosystem of lots of smaller companies and encouraging them to partner together. Creating a culture of cooperation rather than competition.

Happy Father Day to all fellow fathers! 👨‍👧

Request for help with teaching material for kids with ADHD/dys*; please boost 

My wife (a teacher in elem. school) and i plan to create some material for kids about privacy. especially on the Internet.
If you know any material on the subject that is made for kids. especially if itʼs for kids w/ ADHD. weʼd be very grateful.
We want to raise awareness among parents. who are known to put a phone/tablet to these kids hands just to quiet them. Thus - 1/2

I saw a lot of Internet Explorer grave memes today. Did Microsoft really stop supporting it? Completely? Even for large corporate clients? No matter the price paid? If so, 🎉



I finally followed my #Gitea account from Mastodon!!!

“When you're buying a playhouse it's fun for your kids, but what you're really buying is a break from your kids.” — Dan Nelken: A Self-Help Guide For Copywriters

Dear Dan, if you are a parent and buy *anything* for your kids just to take a break from them, youʼre doing parenting awfully wrong. This is like telling me to buy your book if i need copywriting advice, but what iʼm actually buying is a paperweight.

If you think of free software as a developers' rights issue, it's a solved problem. Developers can use free stacks everywhere, and they are free to fix anything. Nobody is legally restricted from learning to be a developer. There's a pretty good live ecosystem. Mission accomplished.

If you think of free software as a human rights issue, you need to think about how all people can actually use and benefit, and usability and accessibility and localisation all become integral parts of the problem.

Nextcloud admin question 

Hey admins (especially low volume ones), what’s your opcache.memory_consumption setting’s value? I started with 128 back when NC16 was new, and now i’m using 384. However, my NC24 now complains (again) that it’s too small… It’s a two user (family) instance, with a bunch of apps installed.

For those hosting your own email servers,

What is your favorite server? I'm looking for an open source one with antivirus integration.

Please boost if you know someone who hosts an email server

I just told a friend that it is 100‰ that i can go to their gathering. Now i am waiting whether they write back to clarify…

Note that i’m not running this on GNOME, so everything is possible…
