I wanted to call myself "Shellman the Ingenious Tortoise", but it didn't fit the name field on ...

Pinned toot

I'm a father, musician, academic, work psychologist and former sysadmin. Skalman (Shellman) is a character in a Swedish comic for kids. He is an ingenious tortoise who invents all sorts of things, including spacecraft and time machines. He's also a know-it-all, and he slavishly follows his food-and-sleep clock (which is why people used to call me 'Skalman').

I toot as an academic/psychologist as @drbjork and as a musician as @bluebirch. I'm also in Swedish as @fenomenologen.

I once had this great little app in that locked the screen and forced me to take a pause after a specified period of work. I don't remember its name, but I wonder if there is something similar for session?

Russia asked for access to Delta Chat user data ... so we had some explaining to do :) Cheers to decentralized app designs and the e-mail system's separation of apps and message transport, something that Whatsapp, Telegram and the likes fail to offer ... delta.chat/en/2020-05-01-roska

Sometimes I really wish I could get a sysadmin job instead of this psychologist stuff. Anyone need an old style sysadmin and developer?

Can I connect a to a somehow? Maybe through some USB to RS232 adapter?

I have always wanted a dumb text terminal in my home. If only I could find a true vintage !

My father has troubles with his Macbook. Previously, I have used Chrome Remote Desktop to help him, but it doesn't work anymore.

Are there any other ways of remotely controlling a MacBook behind NAT, without the user doing anything more advanced than clicking something in a single window?

My father is totally illiterate when it comes to computers...

@Shellman the Tortoise 🐢 @Stefan Björk 🎹🎸📷 Why do you want to run development through Apache? PHP includes it's own simple web server that's perfectly fine both for development and (unit) testing.

To start a simple web server on localhost port 1234 serving the current directory you can do something like this:
php -S localhost:1234 -t .
For integration testing with Apache and all your other dependencies set up properly, I recommend looking into setting up a VM with Vagrant, or use a docker setup for that. This way you're not depending on how your development machine is set up.

I want to set up a PHP development and test rig. I use Ubuntu 18.04 and Apache 2. The problem i end up with is that www-data must own all the files, but I can't run git and Sublime Text as www-data.

How to solve this? Run Apache 2 as myself?

What software would you use for working with #music on #Linux?

I mostly arrange music using #MuseScore, but sometimes I would like to make somewhat more sophisticated productions, use something else than a PCM synth and record MIDI tracks.

#Rosegarden? #Ardour? Something else?
