@davidrevoy I'm curious what your thoughts of KDenLive vs Olive are? I've been using Kden lately and really liking it.

It is highly interesting how many people don't think about the things that they want to do until they are putting out the chairs.

People at my church wanted to watch a Netflix movie outside, without knowing if they had internet, or even a computer to play it from.

TFW your users don't understand the difference between logging out, and locking the screen. 🤦‍♂️

Gooooood Morning Fosstodon!

I'm ready to reclaim my music library, and my control along with it.

What are people using to stream their own library to multiple devices and what works well?

I'll probably want to do the same for video at some point, but less urgent. If there's something that solves both, that'd be neat though.

The one downfall of hosting everything that you use, is extended power outages.

Our CEO just referred to SaaS as "Software as a hostage" and I think that's pretty spot on.

So, I've been slowly automating my home, but the one thing that I cannot find is an outdoor temperature sensor. They throw it in everything for indoors, but outdoors is a royal pain.

The big thing for me is that I want it to be either Zigbee or Z-Wave. I don't need, nor want, my data on a network (even if I Vlan it).


I would really love to see a Samsung dex like feature for degoogled android phones. Most of my stuff is selfhosted anyway and my main computer is a VM I connect to. That way I could just put my phone in a dock anywhere, connect, work and leave without every using anything but my phone. Preferably a USB c dock...

Happy #SysadminDay to the badasses keeping everything running.

@josejfernandez Question for you, if you would please.

I have a static site already built and the server that I serve it from configured just how I want it. I use a self hosted GitLab instance and don't really want to convert the thing to GitLab Pages.

My question is do you know of a simple way to just have Publii present editable regions of a current site to a user? I can't seam to find anything like that in their docs. Just, "really easy to build a new site with us!"

@fribbledom Fast food is unique in that I don't care about washing my hands before eating, but have a strong urge to wash them afterwards.

Really interesting example of a privacy issue highlighted on r/privacy yesterday:

> visited a roommate's place and was bombarded with ads about engagement rings when I used his wifi. I asked him if he was going to propose to his girlfriend and he was shocked I found out. Helped him install PiHole/network wide ad blocking before she found out.


Have you built a mechanical television? Do you know of anyone selling mechanical television kits?
