Hey Fosstodon! I'm Andrew and I'm an Operations Engineer by day (and night, the middle of the night). I've been a FOSS user for about 15 years now and haven't used social media for the last few.

I've rediscovered Mastodon and decided to join you guys. I've already seen a few great posts in 30 minutes, so I'm looking forward to what I'll learn and what I can share!

Has anyone here built a database or inventory system before? I'm looking to make one for my job and I am leaning towards Microsoft Access. As it's available on all our computers. Does anyone recommend an alternate approach that I might not be aware of that windows shops will have?

I'd love to hear about your favorite YouTube / PeerTube / Twitch channel!

Why do you watch it, what's it about and what makes it unique?

@ramob FLAC is an open standards, DRMless, lossless compressed music format. Superb.

And yeah, only hearing about invidio.us today - still don't know any details.

@lightweight @mike Looks like I'm way behind I don't recall 'Kin' The 'Zune' however I was a fan of for some reason I liked it more at the time.

That might be the first time I've seen a Marketing accusation in a sentence that sounded almost as a complement lol.

Hey, so like 10 years ago, all I had was an EEE PC #netbook with a tiny 9-inch screen, and I played around with a LOT of different #Linux distros to find one that worked best for me. My all-time favorite #distro for netbooks was Moblin because it had a cute interface that worked amazingly well for a netbook (distrowatch.com/table.php?dist), followed closely by Kubuntu Netbook Edition (distrowatch.com/weekly.php?iss). A runner-up was Joli OS which was also fun but different (distrowatch.com/table.php?dist). All of those projects are discontinued now, and the old ISOs are nearly 10 years out of date...

Is there any modern OS for small screens that has a similar feel to Moblin or KNE? I've been wanting something simple and nice for netbooks, but none of my web searches turn up anything similar... Peppermint OS is almost good, with its site-specific browser, but it's not quite right (distrowatch.com/table.php?dist).

I wish I was skilled enough to revive and update Moblin or something, but I'm lightyears away from that.

@brandon Good point. My inner security nerd hates to leave it unpatched, but I should only toggle it on when I have the time walk away from my laptop and let it churn through updates.

I was made redundant this week, so I'm looking for a new job.

I have a Masters degree in International Marketing and 6 years experience in marketing, social media & customer service.

Would prefer remote working, but will consider Manchester area.

My morning. Those 4 bends are the first time I've run conduit with big changes across 2 planes. I was a bit out of my comfort zone and learned some things while I did this.

My @thepine64@twitter.com #PinePhone is here! (USB for scale) Loving tinkering with it so far and the form factor/build quality is actually quite nice. Can't wait to really start using it as a @debian@twitter.com development platform, this device's future is looking great.

While @PINE64 is working on the next batch of #pinetime devkit pre-programmed with Pinetime-JF, I working on improving the documentation of the project.

I've already received a couple of PRs related to the doc, and I hope I'll receive many more!
