Why does not support tray icons by default? Really GnomeShell, REALLY???

Pretty much the entire computing world uses a system tray of some sort.

It's time for us to give back -- not just to our community, but to those less privileged.

Pixelfed will be a year old in a few days.

I'm a high school dropout that has never taken any CS or computer classes.

Web development is just a hobby of mine, I work in the auto industry.

I'm so proud of this project, I never would have imagined that I could make something like this.

Thank you for helping me realize credentialism isn't so important as you think. โค๏ธ :pixelfed:

Unfortunately, we have had to update some of the instances we have blocked.

All Gab instances and been 'upgraded' from Silenced to Suspended. Mstdn.jp has also been suspended.

This is because we have had a lot of members reporting porn themed follow bots from these instances.

Instance block list has been updated:

#Firefox #ProTip: right-click on a search box in a website, select "Add a Keyword for this Search", and give it something very short (like an abbreviation) then save it. Open a new tab, type that keyword, enter a query, press enter, and be amazed ๐Ÿ˜

On Thursday, August 8, weโ€™ll be streaming a special event announcing an update to GitHub Actions.

Join in.

We're very happy to announce that our new is now live. We've taken a lot of time editing this, and our Patrons have also helped.

Hopefully this new CoC will better define what we're trying to achieve with .


New CoC for Fosstodon went up ya'll! Please take a look and see if there's anything problematic. So far the only thing I found was an error in terminology referring to the CW.

Feel free to send all suggestions to @fosstodon as I did not have a hand in writing this.

#Jellyfin is an amazing FLOSS fork of Emby, a previously open source media server that recently became proprietary. I set it up on a server with 1 GB of RAM and a single-core processor at 3.5 GHz and it runs *beautifully*. In addition to the web UI, there are clients for Android, Android TV, desktop, Kodi, and Mopidy as well as some deprecated apps that need some love ๐Ÿ˜‰

With my quite terrible specs, Jellyfin will even transcode media from one resolution to a lower one in real time if you have bandwidth limits. I am *very* impressed and can't recommend it enough if you're looking for something like this.

Browsing random movies on Netflix, I ran into on called The Great Hack. Has anyone seen it that has thoughts to share? Worth the time to watch?

Now *thatโ€™s* a fan! Those tees all look great, Raรญ.
