re: happy, happy, happy

"and bring more linux news"

I'm trying to get back to regular schedule. I wasn't well today, but was determined to get back to the grindstone. When out of blue with no warning my main monitor went out. Of course being the Linux guru that I am, I managed to shut the computer down blind. Big Grin

So, anyway, I found me a nice monitor in a local pawn shop and am back up now.

Way to go!

Way to go! Smile

Have a Happy Birthday

Keep writing the articles - I really enjoy your news.

NextCloud on Pi Adventures and Escaping Google

  • NextCloud on Pi Adventures

    I spent yesterday *finally* setting up a NextCloud instance of my own. It’s been on my todo since I installed fiber at home and got a decent Internet connection. I started out with Rasbian Lite and combined it with the NextCloudPi install script from ownyourbits. I then used certbot to install certificates from let’s encrypt before migrating the data directory using these instructions. After that it was happy account creation time, before realizing that I could not upload files larger than ~10kB. Very annoying.

  • Escape Google!

    Being practical most people are going to want to keep using Google services, but at least knowing what the issues are, how you can use privacy-enhanced versions or escape completely with your own services is good to know. While Nextcloud is so slick these days and with pre-packaged options it’s certainly fun just to try out, if not deployed as a full-time personal cloud solution. But it’s not all worrying about invasion of the privacy snatchers, we’ve plenty of down-to-earth tutorials and projects to keep you busy. We take another look at using Audacity to improve your YouTube audio and create effects, we test out of a bunch of server distros to see which is best for you in Roundup, there’s some lovely retro loving with a look at running ZX Basic and we look at building a wearable webcam from a Pi Zero. Enjoy!

  • The Children's Commissioner in England has called on the government to class loot boxes as gambling

    Here could be the start of another nail in the coffin for loot boxes, as the Children's Commissioner in England has put out a new report after a little study was done. Never heard of the Children's Commissioner? It's a public independent body in England that is responsible for promoting and protecting the rights of children (read more here). The current head is Anne Longfield, who today released a pretty damning report on the state of how certain games and companies really attempt to suck money out of people at every opportunity. I won't quote all of it to spare you some of the things we all already know but it's good to see such a thing being done over here. It's needed, it has been for a long time now. This particular study had them speak to children between 10 to 16 about their gaming habits, what they liked and disliked and so on. Games included that were talked about include Fortnite, Call of Duty, FIFA, Roblox and more which do have some pretty aggressive advertising of the in-game items and subscriptions.

  • Dead End Job, a twin-stick ghost-sucking shooter releases December 13

    Ant Workshop and publisher Headup have announced the madcap mash-up of Ren & Stimpy meets Ghostbusters, Dead End Job, is releasing on December 13. If you love 90's cartoons (who doesn't?) and ghost hunting adventures then you're probably going to enjoy Dead End Job. Interestingly, Ant Workshop was founded by Tony Gowland, who previously worked for Rockstar Games and their first game as an indie was Binaries released back in 2016 with Linux support arriving a little later. On top of that, they're getting the music in the game produced by the award winning Wil Morton of Solid Audioworks, who also worked for Rockstar Games.

  • Chilly survival game The Long Dark has released Episode 3, Survival Mode update due December

    Today, you can venture back into the frozen wastes of The Long Dark, as Episode Three CROSSROADS ELEGY is now out. You can skip right ahead to it too. With the first two episodes following Mackenzie, this new episode instead follows Astrid after she and Mackenzie get separated in Milton at the opening of Episode One. Due to that, Hinterland Studio said they've just unlocked the first three episodes for anyone to jump in where the want. They said there "may be some minor spoilers for the earlier episodes, but in general we think this flow can work" and while they still recommend playing from the first episode you now have a choice.
