We did the maths and found we could accommodate a few more tickets for the otherwise sold-out @oggcamp - get them while they last!

#inktober #inktober2019

First 6 days of inktober photographed with the camera and with proper lighting. :) I am still not sure if it is my phone that was causing the color issues or the light bulbs or combination of both.

First week of October is behind and this is already going better than it did last year.

Photo edited in #Darktable so #artwithopensource ;)

Did you know the Zorin OS team is building something awesome to increase #Linux adoption in schools and governments?

It's a tool they hope will eventually be used by other desktop distros like @elementary, @ubuntu and Pop OS.

Listen to my interview with Artyom Zorin:

I think social media needs much better time dependent actions. I want to mute somebody for a few weeks. I want to let somebody follow me for a few days but then block them unless they have written something that lets me believe they are not a bot. I want to block keywords temporarily. I want to be asked whether to renew temporary blocks with a longer time span. This is something clients have to do.

Started listening to Commons and Chronicles, right in the midst of describing dragons. Interesting material without even playing D&D.

Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.

Hey Mastodon, I got asked the other day "why should I care about Emacs in 2019?" (The implication was that Atom and VSCode were basically the new bettrr versions of a hackable extensible editor)

Off the top of my head, I came up with dired, org-mode, GPLv3, but looking for more. So why *should* somebody care about Emacs in 2019?

Some features in Krita are like really underrated. For example transform mask, I don't know if any other application has it. What this feature gives you, is the ability to copy the exact transformation like a filter to another layer

Here is a feature request for that same feature on photoshop's feedback portal -

Don't know if they implemented it or not.

And small things like these that makes krita great
