trying to follow this instruction:
talk about the things you love, even if you think nobody cares.
people won't ask for it at least at first, but some of them will care
and it's attractive to see someone talk about the things they love.
let go of the notion that it's worthless if you don't get a minimum number of listeners, reactions, replies.
practice caring publicly about the things you care about.
I think this is a good reminder for me. I never liked being shy anyway
Thinking more about this: I guess a lot of it comes from having to deal with FOSS-consumers.
In that project specifically it's a lot of people not making the smallest effort to check for context before filing issues or checking for the status. And then getting impatient and feeling entitled.
I have really no idea how that single maintainer is just chugging along on that work, dealing with people and still having time for non-project stuff.
I used to be relatively active in #FOSS but in the last two years or so I burned out to the point I can't even bring myself to label an issue - on a project I contributed on - a duplicate.
I still enjoy the community but I can't see myself making the unappreciated effort anymore.
That might also be the reason why I changed instances from Fosstodon.org to my current one (layer8.space).
What options do I have to encrypt an external hard drive, so that I can use it with Linux, Windows and macOS?
I only know how to encrypt linux partitions/LVM+LUKS, but I highly doubt Windows understands that. I only find "how to use bitlocker" and "buy this program, that will totally not upload all your data to iCloud" and such. Any hints/tips/etc. is highly appreciated. 😘
in the past i've seen people ask, for example, what a good medicine tracking app with wide timeframes would be after i'd just started using a really good one (i think it was rxdroid)
or what a good replacement for plex would be (jellyfin is superb)
but in both example cases i was too afraid to reply and convinced myself someone else would
because i was just too scared and couldn't get past that
but no longer!!!
i will now be helpful and friendly and sociable and not just always super having my guard up and afraid all the time!!!!!!!
Stronger and more valuable!
Trans people are stronger than Elon Musk
Not everyone uses #Linux for the same purpose - and first of all: That's okay! Anyway I am interested how YOU use it.
