Hello, decided to try out mastodon and since I've been an open sourcy person for quite a while now, I thought I'd register at fosstodon.

Linuxer as hobby and work, both.

No clue what to expect from this but I guess I'll find out soon enough :)

Don't do this with your websites. It is not cool. I was scrolling almost constantly, the website makes it more "chunky" than it actually is.

Does anyone use both Dvorak and QWERTY on a regular basis? I've done some typing exercises and have experimented with Dvorak. It really does seem more ergonomic.

Well, this is going well. If you need to use any of these sites, be especially careful with your personal information.

I can't fix this issue for editing tags on #Peertube videos. Every other parameters are updated and I don't get an error 400. Tags are the only parameters not updated.

So I will really need your help for fixing that. Thanks

PS: don't hesitate to boost :)

Hey guys, learned about this epic alternative to twitter from CCC. My first social network that I join, and happily! I'm really curious what will happen ;)
Thanks @fosstodon for providing this instance!
Just a few things about me: I'm a FOSS enthusiast (obviously!), I adore Linux and always strive for a deeper understanding of it, I am interested in infosec and cryptography and also care a lot about digital and analog games!

Can anyone in gods green earth point me to the detailed documentation on how the web console 'filter' feature works in Firefox? They have no documentation anywhere for it and it's sure as hell not filtering the messages using the text I'm entering.

Is there a word like "hangry", but for tired and hungry instead of angry and hungry?

Using gnu Linux since installing Slackware from floppies. Currently using Arch, i3, emacs, LibreOffice and Postgresql. Some data extraction and processing with Python in my previous life. Looking forward to fosstodon!

I just had my first patch merged into a project I've just started contributing to, the website foodsharing.de (where people can share unneeded food with others, and coordinate picking up and sharing unsold food from supermarkets).
It's not open source yet (open-sourcing is their next milestone), but it always feels great to contribute to something which makes the world a better place :)
