New profile, it's time for again !

Hi all, my name's Morgan ! I'm a twenty-something transgender dude from France, trying to adult as best as I can in this world :blobcat_thinkingcool:

My pronouns are he/him and they/them (you can use both !)

My current ambitions are to finally get my legal gender change, switch from my retail career to a dev/IT one, and eventually start my own adventure as a crafter of sound devices ! (Eurorack modules, synthesizers, pedal effects, tube amps, you name it !)

Day to day, I struggle with ADHD and chronic depression, so I love to give pointers and help folks who need it.

You're welcome to follow and have a chat if we have common interest or just to say hi :blobcat_fistbumpR:

See you in the federated seas !

covid, ph 

Currently feeling quite bad from a number of Covid-related symptoms. Test results should come back before Saturday. But damn, if it isn't Covid, I have no idea what could cause this combination of symptoms, these are very uncomfortable.

Thread 🧵 of 501(c)(3) public charities you can support instead of the FSF, if you care about its mission:

I encourage everyone to chip in on this crowd fund campaign. Louis Rossman, well-known Right to Repair lobbyist wants to get laws passed in his country USA for Right to Repair.

This will greatly benefit projects like coreboot and riscv-related projects.

Right to repair means: access to schematics, boardviews and other such info necessary for repair. Presently, hardware/logic info is highly restrictive. This law would be a huge legal precedent for future rights.

What are alternatives to the traditional European keyboard layout you like to use as a controller for synths and stuff ?

asking for dns recommendations, boosts encouraged 

Hm. Anyone know of a good DNS provider that can do failover? It doesn't necessarily have to be free (I don't mind paying a reasonable price if it's good and reliable), but I won't do Cloudflare, and I'd like to avoid using Amazon, Google, or Microsoft's offerings if I can help it.

Finally got my first embedded dev discovery kit ! Am very excited to plug it in and struggle to understand the most simple things haha :blob_3c:

question for folks hosting their cloud on a vps server 

For those of you who host like, data and stuff (I'm thinking mainly personal files on a nextcloud instance and some more bits and things), how do y'all manage backups ?

Local copies ? Do you have a NAS at home to handle these backups ? Do you backup the whole system or just the DB/app config ? Looking for tips !
