I will talk about these things in Mastodon frequently.

- Awesome websites / apps / books

- Things related to Operation Systems like Linux

- Things related to Web (HTML / CSS / JS)

- Programming languages like Swift

- Some bugs / moments inside my brain

The transformable cloud in the sky is so beautiful and fluent. Its color and shape can be changed by the wind over time. It is just like a wonderful drawing made by a great artist. And the background is the whole universe.

Libre T440p reduced by £20:

Secure laptops with osboot (based on coreboot) and Debian. OpenBSD/FreeBSD also available. I'm the author of osboot; sales fund the project.

Coreboot replaces BIOS/UEFI firmware giving you more control of the boot experience.

If you use Android, you can find lots of Fediverse-related apps and other free open source software on @fdroidorg, an alternative to Google Play which emphasises privacy and ethical software.

Also, some apps which cost money on Google Play are free of charge on F-Droid, such as Fedilab @apps. (This is because the app devs encourage people to use F-Droid.)

Due to Google's anti-competition roadblocks, it's slightly tricky to install F-Droid, but once it's installed it's very easy to use. It looks and works very much like a normal app store.

If you are comfortable using an APK file you can get it from F-Droid's website at f-droid.org

For less technical people, there's a step-by-step beginner's guide to installing F-Droid at:

I love to toot something. This makes me feel better. If I want to say something, I just toot.

If you want features added or fixed on the Fediverse, the best thing is to get in touch with the people who make the server type you're on. Most Fediverse server types have an official site which includes instructions on how to let them know about bugs, request features, contribute translations etc.

Here are some official Fediverse sites' contribution guides. Most welcome contributions from all kinds of people, including non-techies:

BookWyrm
joinbookwyrm.com/get-involved

Friendica
friendi.ca/resources/contribut

Funkwhale
funkwhale.audio/en_GB/communit

GoToSocial
github.com/superseriousbusines

Mastodon
github.com/mastodon/mastodon/b

Mobilizon
docs.joinmobilizon.org/contrib

PeerTube
docs.joinpeertube.org/contribu

PixelFed
github.com/pixelfed/pixelfed/b

WriteFreely
writefreely.org/contribute

The Fediverse is made collaboratively by volunteers, which means it's easy to directly communicate with the people who make it. This is a huge advantage over bigger networks, it makes it easier to stay human and humane.
