@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. 😞
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 ?
