There is now a Mastodon instance for publishing scientists: FediScience.
Everyone is welcome from PhD student to professor, as well as researchers from outside of academia. You are welcome to stay afterwards, but it is also easy to change to another server.
There will be a lot of science talk on this server, but there is no need to only talk science
Boosts are appreciated to let others know about this new instance.
Top 3 favourite GNU/Linux distros go!
Boosts highly encouraged! There's a twist with this one ;) #boostplz
PS: The twist has nothing to do with Linux or open source
It's been a long time since I've had widgets on my desktop. #unixporn

Oh my $DEITY! I am practically giddy with excitement! This is a screenshot of an app called "Termux" which you can install on your Android tablet. It's not just a terminal app, but a Linux install with repos for additional packages. You do this with a simple "pkg install" or "apt install" and just like that, you're running that much needed package that wasn't on your tablet. First test, was htop. Screenshots below. Get Termux from the Play Store at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.termux&hl=en_CA . #linux
