BEWARE: As Halloween gets closer, police are warning parents to LOOK at your child’s candy before they eat it. Some houses are reportedly handing out Amber bear amulets of neolithic hunters, 1700-650 BCE, found in Slupsk, Poland

Thanks for listening to us whether 14 minutes or 14 years. Our current presenters - @popey@twitter.com @marxjohnson@twitter.com and @m_wimpress@twitter.com would like to thank the past presenters - @tonywhitmore@twitter.com @lauracowen@twitter.com @Daviey@twitter.com and @Ciemon@twitter.com without whom we wouldn't have even started in the first place. 🥰

Two great things about RSS readers:

1) Disconnects you from The Algorithm.

2) No comment thread arblegarble.

Seriously, get yourself one.

Just to reiterate in relation to Gab getting hacked, I’m not aware of any vulnerabilities in Mastodon at the moment and based on what I have seen in their code modifications the vulnerabilities they have are the ones they themselves introduced (along with never porting security patches from us)

The voting is over at LinuxQuestions.org for the best Linux/OpenSource of 2020. In the podcast category, mintCast has moved from below the middle two years ago, to above the middle last year, to 6th place in this year's voting, getting more votes than any Jupiter show and more votes than Ubuntu Podcast. Our listenership now averages over 3,600 downloads per show. Our current team came in in October 2018. We have a lot of fun and cover a lot of Linux.

Every time I update @nextcloud, I'm reminded of how shockingly good their upgrade process is.
