Pinned toot

Portucalio has came to existence days ago. I have now launched the companion blog and devoted a whole section/article regarding FLOSS in the hopes I can give something back.

Thank you!

I'm currently accepting commissioned projects/work. Please feel free to send me a private message or an email to mail@pedropintosilva.com

I've been working in this field for 7 years which has made me value how important is the client-designer relation besides I really enjoy the process of understanding and helping one's vision becoming reality.

Hey @admin what's your opinion on using searchx over duckduckgo? thanks

This weekend I built a tool in Rust to collect information from all the ports in the FreeBSD ports tree and compile it into a mobile friendly website. Still a work in progress but it's going well.

#FreeBSD #Rust

"Alva beta is officially here!"
OK, installing!

I will be returning with my experience on it as soon as I get a change to play around with it.

...but the clown can get angry, and scary! And we should become angry and scary because not only they are violating our right to privacy, they are doing it in the most sleazy way. They don't deserve or business.

The next iteration is a clown, that's how these websites treat their customers. Like clowns to be laughed at.

Why I love @pixelfed
- I can use it on a desktop!
- The filters are non-destructive! this means I can always save photos at their original, effect-free form
- Settings are easy and simple

A little thing it makes me confused:
- "the create new post" is permanently active and I always tend to associate that icon with the current page I am visiting (my timeline; discover or notifications).

Thanks for all your hard work @dansup

for everyone interested I am on pixelfed as pixelfed.social/portucalio

In case you missed it: I made a #Mastodon Shortcode for #Hugo, a static site generator. Embed all the toots into your #blog posts!

@qwazix works straight from the browser or you can have additional features by installing the AppImage/dmg/exe...

github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet-el

Does anyone has experience jitsi.org? -platform
-source . I have been introduced to it by @qwazix and I was wondering if anyone uses as well.

Thanks to @Pedro I have a new avatar!

However what's a new piece of art without a big reveal?

Like every creative process the avatar involved iteration. I will start with the first version that shows a bewildered user who just confronted a nasty GDPR popup.

Today at #InkscapeHackfest one of our most long-standing bugs was fixed and we can now have a top-left origin in documents! Thanks Thomas!

tip when switching off the title bar (menu > customize) the window decorations will appear now on the right which is ok when your theme has it like that. Nevertheless, for everyone else, Firefox is now the only app with close; minimize; maximize on the right.

Here is how to solve it: askubuntu.com/questions/103542

tip I just discovered today: hamburger > Customize > uncheck title bar (bottom left corner) for more efficient screen real estate usage. Love it!

Appreciated the #XOXOfest reminder of how much freedom we're surrending to tech giants under the guise of free speech or to "make things for others". You are the product. The Internet wasn't designed with this in mind, folks.
