Anyone have any recommended alternatives to Google Authenticator? Haven't found anything that isn't tied to a service like LastPass and supports features like search and backup / restore options. Google Authenticator is starting to get unwieldy for me with all my MFA accounts.

Going live for more Stack upgrades. We'll be going through packages like Game of Thrones goes through characters.

Right, time for stream prep! Gonna set up Streamlabs again so might be a bit before I go live, but I'll obviously post when I have done so.

Game plan for today:

1. Get cats some food from store.
2. Get hoooman some coffees.
3. Cleanup python-sip packages and sort out puddletag deprecation.
4. Start streaming more stack upgrading over at

Live on for some more GNOME Stack upgrading as a follow-up to Saturday's Hackfest.

Bryan and I have another planned for this Saturday (April 13th) at 12PM Eastern / 4PM UTC. Bryan will be working on a new implementation of and I'll be working on the Stack upgrade! Tune in at

*or optimizing my 24h each day.

I swear my blog post will have better grammar than my social media posts.

In other news, I have a personal blog post I'm planning on writing about "digital wellness". It's been something on my mind a lot recently and an aspect of my life I'm wanting to improve in 2019, whether it's to help me keep focused, productive, and optimizing my 24h each day.

I have some ideas on (open source) software I'm going to write to satisfy some of my own digital wellness and productivity needs. So stay tuned? 🤷‍♂️

So I decided to (re-)open my @flattr account as I start working more extensively on my own open source projects. If you use something I develop (doubtful, but I've heard crazier things) and want to buy me a beer every once in a while, check me out at

To be clear, this is a personal account for personal use to support development of personal open source software. It's not associated with any other individual(s), project(s), organization(s), etc.

If you're able to achieve a satisfying experience for your existing consumer / user base, those people will become your evangelists. They'll share about how amazing your work is. You'll be happier because they're happier and your consumer / user base will grow organically.

Sean mentions focusing on actions rather than words, community over press. That's something which resonates with me, as someone that spends a large amount of time communicating with the Solus community and very little with press.

At the end of the day, your focus should not always be expanding your consumer base, whether it's for your software, game, or hell even a coffee shop. It should primarily be on working towards providing a more satisfying experience for your existing consumer base.

A great talk by Sean Murray at Hello Games on game development. Largely applies to software development as well.

I remember when No Mans Sky launched being dumbfounded (in a bad way) by the state of the game but it's evolved into something truly fantastic.

3 hours later, unstable is now cloned to my home server. Total size of both repos, with hardlinks, amounts to 401GB.

Total amount of time to clone the entire repo was 9 hours. Not bad.

Well it only took 6 hours but finally have shannon cloned to my home server and moving onto unstable. Will be much much faster fortunately because of hardlinks.

Forced me to be productive in other tasks too, so got that going for me.

gnome-upgrade repo created on my home server. Still gotta clone shannon and unstable repos from RIT but making good progress on getting a permanent local repo set up to enable local stack upgrades and validation.

Right, finally clawed back a load of space. Time to do a clone of the Solus repo so I can prep for upcoming local GNOME Stack upgrade.

[root@titan versions]# rm -rf *
bash: /bin/rm: Argument list too long

Well then, there's a first for everything.

Me: "What's taking up so much space? I know my media library isn't THAT large."

Nextcloud: "I heard you wanted 1TB worth of old file versions".
