I'm terrible with introductions, but here we go, I guess. My name is Chad McCullough. I live in the St. Louis area. I'm an advocate for Linux, Security, and Privacy. I'm a bike, public transit, safe streets advocate, runner, Socialist, and Vegan (for the animals - Always). Currently working at Liquid Web and I love WordPress, even though I've owned a domain for years but still haven't built a personal site. That's changing, and changing soon. 😀

We are happy to announce our second #collab with @Hi_MINISFORUM. This time we went for an Office optimized #MiniPC starting from $299. Check out the #UM350 with @ManjaroLinux pre-installed: This includes #Crossover @CodeWeavers for the first 1000 orders!

I may finally install the fenders on my commuter bike, this weekend. I know, goals, right?

If you're still on #BirdSite #BadBird it's worth reading New Twitter Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. From 10 June, no rules against offensive content. You give them royalty-free license to use, publish, & distribute your Content to the rest of the world and to let others do the same. Also ups advertising & may ban adblockers (my reading). New Privacy Policy says it Infers your Identity. They link device used with account & email address or phone number. NB #NZTwits

Signs you could benefit from using a private search engine:
1⃣ You can't escape annoying ads that follow you around
2⃣You're paranoid someone will read your search history
3⃣ Your search results and ads are a little too specific

Very exited to announce the relaunch of TryLinux, a Linux distro cheat-site to help users find the best OS option for them.

You can check it out here:

Some distros are still out of date and we are working to update them all.

One of my favorite Linux distributions is Zorin OS, for many reasons. Anyone hear of any news about a possible update to the Ubuntu 22.04 base and, maybe, Gnome 42?

Planting is caring 🌳

Today we open our MapMyTree web app to all EU citizens to register their planted trees. Help us reach the goal of 3 billion additional trees in the EU by 2030.

This can make a difference not only for Europe, but for the world.

Well, so, as usual, we get a week of spring here in the St. Louis area and it's straight to the summer heat and humidity. Hopefully, this will be brief and we'll get back to spring temps for a while. I'm not a fan of the heat but I can deal with it. It's the humidity that I hate.

Fedora Linux 36 was released, today, and as usual, it was a boring upgrade because it finished with no issues. 😍

Wanna piss off a motorist? Come to a complete stop at a stop sign. You want to REALLY piss off a motorist? Do this on a bike. We can't win. Motorists are pissed off when we actually stop at a stop sign or traffic signal and they're pissed off when we don't. Which do you want?
