Introduction, sort of long 

Hi, I'm tux93 which is a very creative name I gave myself when starting to dabble in ( 11.2 to be more preciese) back when I was 16.

The name stuck and nowdays I spend my free time maintaining a hand full of packages on the Open Build Service and working in tech support for my dayjob.

Aside from that I like to dabble in although I recently rarely got around to the editing part which has lead to quite a backlog...

LGBT rights in Poland, police brutality 

Please fucking boost this as far as possible. Please, PLEASE.

A Polish trans activist named Margot was arrested. Her "crime" is minor destruction of property (she cut up a tarp on a truck covered with vicious anti-LGBT propaganda).

Her pre-emptive arrest for two months was authorized by a court, despite the fact that such arrest, by Polish law, are meant to be used for people who are a flight risk or an immediate danger to others.

But wait, there's more.

Time to pour another coffee.

One key to achieving some of your dreams in life is getting up earlier than everyone else, or going to bed later than everyone else.

Just try to not do both things at the same time. Because that's apparently the key to achieving nothing... tested by yours truly 😆

The Twitter hack is the latest in a long line of failures of centralised platforms. Regardless, the decentralised community underestimates resilience of these platforms and remains dangerously unprepared for the wolves that howl at the door of our users.

"This is Fine": Optimism and Emergency in the Decentralised Network.

Everyone wants to know my favorite Linux distros and the answer is "just give me XFCE or don't give me a GUI at all"

The recording of yesterday's live stream about how to use the test automation framework openQA in @opensuse is online. Two hours of goodness - youtu.be/2zwU9_bV_zI

Snap, Flatpak, AppImage, etc - are all attempts to make Linux more palatable to either proprietary software, or to software with reckless runaway complexity. Personally, I want neither, and will give no quarter to "solutions" for their "problems".

So that whole Tux vs. Xenia debate over the Linux Mascot title got me thinking

I like Xenia as a character but she's not exactly mascot-y. Mascots should be distinct in silhouette and have a logo-able design.

So I decided to try making a Xenia logo! 3 different kinds, in fact!

With today's release of Leap 15.2 users will finally get Xfce 4.14 which is awesome by itself. But the team added some extra cherries on top, including their very own desktop theme!
