@derek because OpenOffice is what LibreOffice used to be IIRC and Apache has pretty much stopped developing OpenOffice AFAIK
@derek Hey, DT. Why not promote Odysee channel instead of YouTube? Wouldn't that be more appropriate here on Mastodon?
@rob I don't post directly to LBRY. It is synced from YouTube so when I post the vids here, there isn't a LBRY link yet.
@derek It's a little disappointing that Odysee/LBRY only seems to get sloppy seconds. 😞
@derek I would be careful calling Brave "Free and Open Source Software" which you do in the video. The FSF would certainly disagree about the "free" part, they also don't consider Chromium "free" either. There are no entries in FSF's Free Software Directory for Brave or Chromium. PS. I'm NOT criticizing you here (I have no horse in this race!) I suspect from watching your other videos you typically follow FSF's opinion when it comes to what "free" software is... take care.
Do you have a PeerTube instances where you upload copies of your videos ?
Not trying to pull you away from YouTube. Infact I believe you should be on YouTube to reach and inform larger audience. But it is nice to have backup.
@murtezayesil derek already answered before that he doesn't use or plan to use peertube. He does use LBRY/Odysee
I posted that toot before watching the part where DT talked about his backup solution. I was suggesting it as a remote backup of videos but LBRY also can count as that as well.
@derek Brave isn't free software. The FSF said that Chromium isn't free software.
I would never use Brave even if it was free software, but it's important to know that Brave is only open source, a term that evil companies like Google or Microsoft use just to clean their image, to be seen as good guys. But they aren't. Neither is Brave

@derek Why an external SDD + nextcloud instead of a NAS which handles both file backups and sharing of files between devices?
@amdac A NAS is something I plan to invest in soon actually. It would eliminate my need for Amazon.
@derek ad vocem the email clients and thunderbird. Have you used/ever considered using PGP web of trust for email privacy? Thunderbird got big updates but still lacks many features. You might want to take a look at it. It's supposed to give you out-of-the-box encrypted email.
btw. just joined distrotoot!
About the backups question, you said you backup your files on an external SSD ?
I'm assuming you automate that process, do you use anything for that ? or do you just use a cron job for it ?
What do you do if your hard drive crashes ? do you just reinstall everything and then pull in the dotfiles ?
