I was excited about open source nvidia drivers right until I read “Pre-Turing customers will continue to run the closed source modules.”

#Polestar is the better Tesla. Their CEO really cares about helping and solving problems. I am impressed.

Been working on migrating my Wordpress blog over to Blot.im. There are scripts that do it automatically but I need to manually clean up each post due to various old WP codes etc from using several themes over the years.

Worth it so far though. I’m liking Blot’s power behind simplicity. Am also hooking Obsidian into it for wiki style pages and updates down the road. Who knows? It does seem to work well and I can do everything (including blogging) within it if desired

However support there has been nonexistent over the past couple weeks - no replies to emails or questions answered on their forum so I’m a little concerned for long term viability. Hopefully the owner is okay.

#FollowFriday recs! ⬇️

@asrivkin - a #DART mission investigation team lead. Meaning Andy loves #asteroids, and also loves throwing spacecraft at asteroids

@sundogplanets - an astronomer + a goat farmer. Sam studies debris disks (kinda like the Kuiper belt in the Solar System) and talks about the problems with #Starlink

@xxyxxyart - Joel is an artist who makes little clay astronauts, aliens, dinosaurs, and more. I can personally attest to the quality of his creations (of which I have several!)

This #FollowFriday I'd like to recommend the account @kiwi2002 - writing, science and general cleverness. Definitely worth a follow ☺️

GUYS! Giancarlo Esposito (Gus Fring from Breaking Bad and Moff Gideon from The Mandalorian) is going to be the voice on Sonos' new voice control! The best part? All of the voice command processing is going to take place ON SONOS, not to the cloud! This is so awesome! I can barely contain my excitement for this software update!

I'm heading over to 3115 Kanawha Avenue SE, Charleston, WV 25304 later today to talk to joe manchin. he and i don't have a lot in common, but i want to ask him what he thinks about the thomas jefferson quote about how the tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of tyrants. now, I'm no jefferson fan, he was a racist slaveowning hypocrite, but the man did know how to write and i think that that quote is raw as hell. i am curious what joe manchin thinks!

Maybe good to do a little #Introduction also :blobcatgiggle:​ Never done that before :catblush:

Well uh.. meow! I am stux, I’m from the #Netherlands where I live with my girlfriend and our two little cats called #George & Washington or #Washy for short! We’ve adopted them from the streets and they’re named by people here on the #Fediverse :blobcatgiggle:

Like my gf, I just became 29 years old and I have a huge love for #tech, #space, #science and more nerd related stuff 😇 Over two years ago I started mstdn.social as a replacement for my former mainstream social media since it became hell. Since than I have expanded mstdn.social with other services like Misskey, Pixelfed, PeerTube, Matrix and so much more!

Since about a year now I quit my (terrible) job at a telecom company where I worked in customer support, I couldn’t stand the yelling anymore.. so I started my own business! It’s called Stuxhost.com♥️ @Stuxhost

My goal in life is to change the world, like many others I guess🫣

It's #introduction time!

- 🇮🇹 geek in his mid-thirties, based in 🇳🇱

- 🎓 M.Sc in computer engineering.

- My current job is about fixing and automating global supply chains, one line of code at the time, but I have worked in a wide range of industries over the past (nearly) two decades.

- My hobbies often involve automating everything around me.

- :linux: #Linux user since 2001. My experience as a Linux admin started back in a time when I used run my IRC and Apache servers on a repurposed Pentium 1 under my bed, and it still took about 10 💾 to install a full Slackware system.

- :arch: #Arch Linux and rolling release enthusiast.

- 🛠 Creator and main developer of #Platypush (platypush.tech), an open-source (mainly :python: and :vue:), general-purpose platform/framework to automate everything - from smart devices, to cloud services, to robots, to DevOps operations, to everything in between. With hundreds of available integrations, you can think of it as IFTTT+Tasker+SmartThings on steroids, scriptable, and runnable on almost any device. Or maybe like HomeAssistant's lighter brother.

- Admin of social.platypush.tech, a Mastodon instance where I may talk a lot about Platypush, automation, programming, electronics and maths. I tend to write a lot, so if you're looking for an instance with a 10,000 characters per toot limit...

- Looking for relays with instances dedicated to similar topics. My dream would be to build an experience, when it comes to #Fediverse #relays, that is akin to curated #OPML lists, where admins can create curated federated experiences for the users on their platforms, rather than the open-to-everything overwhelming stream of toots on the federated timeline that most of the relays provide nowadays.

- 🤖 Machine-learning enthusiast. I have published a book on it link.springer.com/book/10.1007, with simple computer vision exercises that can be run on a #RaspberryPi, and I did some academic research back in time where neural networks were still a green field fabiomanganiello.com/#research, and I never stop learning new stuff.

- 🧪️ Physics, chemistry, biology, maths and astronomy enthusiast.

- 🎵 Music addict, 🎸and 🎹 player, and occasional composer/producer You can find some of my music here open.spotify.com/artist/5H6BJf and here soundcloud.com/blacklight01

- I may often write about random politics/economics/philosophy. I may sometimes be very passionate on topics such as open-source, open data, open protocols, tolerance and social inequalities. I mostly belong to the progressive/social-democratic field. You are welcome to try and change my mind, as long as you do it in a civilized and data-driven way.

- 🏄 and 🛹️ rider. And, as a good Dutch resident, 🚲 enthusiast.

- 👪 Full-time father.

Mastodon

masto.social is a general purpose English speaking Mastodon instance.
