What hardware are you running on? I've found it often doesn't work "out of the box" because the hardware manufacturers don't Open Source/upstream their drivers so it can't be released as part of the core distro offering. It is definitely a pain for users, as it's not like ie Dell would say "don't buy this, it sucks for Linux usage!"

My Micropub endpoint has a fair bit of unit testing inside the Java project ( https://gitlab.com/jamietanna/www-api/tree/develop/www-api-web/micropub ) for common flows, but I've also found a tonne of implementation issues by integrating with real Micropub clients. Some of it is an issue on a Micropub client, but most of it is something I've missed or assumed incorrectly. I'm thinking to create a stubbed version ( https://gitlab.com/jamietanna/www-api/issues/26 ) that I can then use with https://micropub.rocks to ensure compliance. Some of it is also a case of reading through the Micropub spec!

Welcome, Matt! Thanks for blogging about your experiences, it's really great to see, especially because it was through me you've been interested in it! I'd heavily recommend https://github.com/PlaidWeb/webmention.js/ by https://beesbuzz.biz/ as I currently use it on my site and love it because I don't need to rebuild my site to show new Webmentions, although it does mean that my viewers need client-side Javascript. If you get a chance, come and talk to us on the IndieWeb chat (more details on https://indieweb.org/discuss )

I'm probably not the best person to comment on it as I'm used to tweaking my Linux installs and going a more pain-induced way around things, but it's not _that_ bad. It's a learning curve, it's not nearly as polished an experience that you may expect (for some things) but I find it such a better experience on Linux - I use mac daily for work and it constantly frustrates me!

Rachel's talk 'The power of change - learning to live as a "weirdo"' was really quite amazing. It's a difficult thing to talk about mental health, especially to those of us who aren't very close to it to understand what it's like, but Rachel knocked it out of the park with a great illustration of what autism can be like in terms of the reality of the spectrum and the many different effects it can have. We started with a bit of humour and a funny title, but she took us through a journey of autism, ADHD, depression, and spun a really intriguing story. There was a great mix of humour alongside this serious topic, and I love that Rachel ended with two thoughts - she realised that she didn't want to be "normal" but wanted to be authentic, and that: > no one interesting is normal I'd urge you to see this talk if you're able to catch it again!
