Wishing you all a Merry Christmas! 🎅

I hope your holidays are filled with fun, friends and family, lots of food, and maybe even a bit of ! 🐧🎁 Edit: And felines. 🐈‍⬛

@Klowner Hey Mark, since it's Xmas time and your festive Tux wallpapers are as traditional as mistletoe and Mariah Carey, is there a new one coming down the chimney for this year?

@reddalo Did you use it, or did you try and use it and it was gone? If it's was the latter, no promises with these, but try bsky-social-diff7-4ajyf or bsky-social-wpult-7nkmy - they were sent to my emails from when I joined the waiting list, but I got given an invite code from someone else before I needed them.

@reddalo Ah, great! Have fun my friend!

@kde can you start posting about Falkon? I quite like the little thing for what it can offer (even though it's basically KDE Chromium), but as it stands it does need quite a bit of work to get it to support modern user features like the industry standard WebExtensions :P

.....wait, you mean other people hear that sound too? 😅

And PopPunk sounds like a much better alternative! Any artists/albums/songs we should definitely try? 🎧 💙

omgubuntu,
@omgubuntu@floss.social avatar

@picandocodigo @thunderbird Absolutely. They're pretty much the first pop punk band (technically more skate punk, but pop punk evolved out of skate punk and, to some, the differences between the genres are slight).

@ProfessorCode @santiagofn @omglinux I’m logged into the wrong account to reply so just pretend the avatar is pink ;) so, you’re not alone in having an rss feed that’s delayed for omglinux. I’ve noticed it myself. The site had a duplicate cache issue that was preventing new posts from showing on the homepage, so it might be a residual hangover from that. I’ll investigate… Thanks for mentioning it.

A few weeks ago we shared some of the music we at Team Thunderbird use to get focused. We'd love to know what tunes - songs, playlists, or even genres - help you flow through that Monday morning inbox. ✉️ 🎧

A man in a white dress shirt and black tie sits at a desk in front of computer, listening to music on headphones. His eyes are closed and he's waving one hand as if he's conducting an orchestra.

@thunderbird To cancel out the sound of screaming that plays inside my head on a Monday, I go to my go-to music for all occasions: #PopPunk! 🤙
