Hey #fediverse devs, please consider implementing #Libravatar in your apps:
libravatar.org/

Like #Gravatar, it's a way for users to change their profile pic/ avatar images in one place and have it propogate across other servies they use. But unlike Gravatar, it's decentralized and not controlled by Automattic. It is fully #FreeCode and compatible with #OpenID though.

messenger, while operating from Switzerland, is now owned by a US holdings company. They also quietly updated their privacy policy to some very vague language. PrivacyTools.io got a response from Wire's CEO after questioning them about the news and it didn't inspire much confidence. As a result, PrivacyTools.io is no longer recommending the Wire platform on their website.

I'm (re)joining the community! This will be my primary account, mainly tooting about mainly and geekery

My first toot!

I'm a C++ developer, currently studying & working in the area of computational physics and gpgpu programming. Been a :ubuntu: user for many years, but finally this year decided to give :archlinux: a go. Also very excited for PinePhone later this year!
Now let's figure out this :mastodon: thing (you can see I already found the emoticons...).

Last week I enjoyed the
conference. Great talks on player, HK user group & more.

If you're in South China/HK or nearby, hit me up.

Hi all, what would you use for an online form? I'm going to send out a request for English language editors.

I can code something myself, but if there is something out there that is and privacy conscious I'd like to use that group.

This would essentially be a Google forms or survey alternative.

I am using Mastodon and Fosstodon since a few weeks. I used to rely on a proprietary platform and so far I really enjoy Fosstodon (thanks for it).

I am working on the Elisa music player as part of the KDE project.
I am using FOSS and KDE and Debian since 2004 and a PowerPC laptop.

El Árbol del Tule is a tree growing in Oaxaca state, Mexico, and it has the stoutest trunk of any tree in the world. Its a 35 metre tall Montezuma cypress, and its main trunk has a circumference of over 42 metres, even larger than any known giant sequoia.

It also goes by the Nahuatl name of Ahuehuete, meaning "Old man of the water". According to the local Zapotec people, it was planted 1400 years ago by a priest of Ehecatl, the Aztec wind god, named Pecocha.

New to mastodon... just learned about it and it seems like an amazing project.
It'll probably take me a while to get used to the platform 😅

I'm self-educated in tech (networking, programming, security) and have been looking to contribute to some OSS projects for a while. Hoping to contribute to the cause, and to maybe switch from my current career as a digital artist into development full-time

Let me introduce two groups.

First, OceanEditors.com (OE).
OE isn't software, but Fosstodon may still find it interesting.

OE is an English editing service for scholars. We're able to serve Chinese scholars (WeChat pay).

Our main challenge is finding clients. Any help in that regard would be appreciated.

OE does not pursue profit maximization for shareholders. Instead we provide better compensation for our editors. We aim to exit as a .
