Tech drama. GNU/Linux/BSD user.

This was something just introduced into Mastodon 2.6 I believe. Quite interesting.

I usually use Vultr, my referral link to host my cloud images for misc purposes. I also got a couple of VPS running OpenBSD.

I used Romans awesome guide for upgrading it to 6.4.

Hi! I have been real busy recently with my new studies. I am studying Programme in Specialist Nursing – Prehospital Nursing for 50% at the same time I am working 85%. To top that up I got a family with two wildering kids of the ages 5 and 2. So this is time consuming.

Hopefully you understand why I have not got the time to write anything for a long time.

Anyhow, I just installed opensuse tumbleweed on a VPS.

As far as I know there is not many cloud providers offering opensuse, so I pulled up my own image to vultr. Since they allow me to use practically any ISO of my choosing.

I just signed up for reddit, once again.

As you may have seen before I deleted my account since I do not like what reddit has become.

But for reasons I have considered, since I removed myself from the service, I feel the need to read/write on some subreddits.

#reddit

On OpenBSD, FreeBSD, Void Linux, Manjaro, Debian, Fedora and more..

I read an article found here.

This article is written back in 2015, a wee bit old as pointed out by kungtotte.

kungtotte – @iah buyer beware if you want to use Windows ever and use the same editor. Vim8 works a lot better on that platform and it supports async now too. It's fairly trivial to turn an init.vim into a vimrc or vice versa though, so I guess it's moot.

I have for a long time thinking of ditching Twitter for good. One thing I still use is lists. I haven't gotten around to making it work on Mastodon. Anyone got a tip?

So how do I ditch it completely?

Trying out the fediverse interaction. To follow this blog on your favorite fediverse platform just search for @dup@dup.space

You really made me love you. I remember way back when I tried FreeBSD for the first time. It was a new and fresh breeze of air hitting me. And now years later I deployed openbsd on my vultr vps. It works wonderfully. And yes it just works. Reading a lot of nice man pages and the initial configuration is just awesome.

After reading https://www.romanzolotarev.com how could I not?

Deploying the instance on vultr, referral link as I'm writing this.

Is done. If you are able to find another platform for yerks please don't tell me.
