Choose monitor carefully: when using Dell on Nvidia graphics with proprietary driver for issue happens when monitor connected via DisplayPort sleeps - it cannot wake up afterwards. Need to fallback to HDMI to get view. Didn't manage to find workaround yet - according to forums it needs to be solved in GPU driver or monitor firmware level 🤔

Peertube has scripts that allows you to upload a complete YouTube-Channel to a desired peertube account.

That way, you can also automatically mirror YouTube-Channels to a PeerTube Channel, from e.g. your laptop.

You don't have to own the instance, you just need an account on that instance.

If you commit "aux.txt" to a git repo, you break it for windows users. If you distribute "aux.txt" in a zip file, windows computers cannot extract it without error.

My dream for Mastodon is for it to be a viable choice as a publishing platform for any creator. In other words, for people to not feel like they're locked in to Twitter or Instagram if they want to be professionally successful.
