KDE Plasma powers the desktop of the Valve #SteamDeck.


Congrats Valve for releasing #SteamDeck! Thank you for choosing Plasma!

If you're down with #darktable you can support one of the main developer's efforts to work full time on the project!


Currently they're nowhere close to a living wage, let's change that!

darktable 3.6 is ready to be released tomorrow. For that occasion, we organize a virtual party on hub.link/NWRSaUP starting at 16:00 UTC. Join us !

(The event is going to be mostly in EN, but you can add the languages you speak in your username like [EN] [DE] so people uncomfortable with EN may still interact).

@maperal I see what you mean. :) Different people have different experiences. This case I think is especially important for people who do feel they are active part of communities in various commercial social networks and struggling with the fact that their network doesn't move with them. This can become especially jarring if you do use social media not only for family and friends, but also for work, school or follow and participate into topic based communication.

GSoC update from Audacity: the source separation effect is basicaly working, so you can take a mix of voices/instruments and separate it into per-voice tracks


alternatively use mastodon to join an existing conversation here. This can be tricky as it is tempting to just go for "big" follow counts but go for people who are active and talking to each other in topics you want to participate. Build ongoing conversations and a small community (although it can be bigger) and be there for them. Rest will come but this is how you begin, using mastodon or fediverse as a way to be part of a community, not NOT part of another.

instead of trying to move here wholesale identify an interaction that is not working. Maybe you need a class communication you don't want in commercial items. maybe you need a way to roleplay, maybe it is just family communication you want to keep more casual and away from algorithms. Move with that small community. More will come but you will still have a reason to stick here. Use mastodon as a tool not a statement. (2/3)

a lot of people ask me how do you stick with alternative social media such as when all of your friends are elsewhere. If you expect all of your friends to move here and mirror your interactions there it won't work.

Think of it this way, you don't interact with the same people and the same way in different commercial networks.

and think how you started using the ones you use regularly. There was some content you wanted to or needed to interact with.(1/3)

I've added every non-broken SuperCollider plugin package I know of to the Arch User Repository, making it super easy to install even the most esoteric #SuperCollider plugins

*taking a big breath* ok, I want to try this idea before I talk myself out of it again.

Giving singing lessons.

I would like to try my hand at teaching singing. Sliding scale prices, lessons via the video conference program of your least discomfort. Get-to-know-you lesson free.

For coordination, my time zone is CEST/UTC+2 and I am not completely free in when I can make noise/have appropriate privacy for teaching, but I guess we can get that figured out.

it was close to anatolian side (kartal-sultanbeyli within the landmass) small quake, just very near.


@sean oh... yeah I guess as only the media will live there and nothing else.

@eylul @gidi the good news is that there are lots of Object Storage services now that offer an S3-compatible API at decent prices. I get mine from Linode, but there's actually a decent selection of choices out there.
@eylul overall, it works okay - if you stick with like 1-2 resolution variants per video, you won't have many problems. Transcoding is kind of demanding on the CPU, though.

I ended up starting a community instance and use Object Storage with it now because it's kind of cheaper and I get way more space out of it.
