Rufe gerade bei einer Hotline an, wo mir die Ansage mitteilt, ich müsste einer Aufnahme des Gesprächs zustimmen, ansonsten könnte man mir nicht richtig helfen. Ich konnte dann doch noch widersprechen. Ist das legal?

This is a long shot, but I want to put the power of social media and federation to the test.

My son wants to become a commercial airline pilot when he’s grown up. It would be awesome if we could find a commercial pilot in the fediverse that we can follow and ask questions of.

If everyone who reads this could boost it, it would be much appreciated and it would mean the world to my son if he could get in touch with a real-life commercial pilot! ✈️

I'm really sad to hear that Thomas decided to leave all social networks and with it the development of #Fedilab.

It was always my preferred app for #Mastodon and #Friendica. I will continue to use it as long as possible and hope that others will pick it up.

I can understand his decision on a personal level and wish him all the best. We should not allow such toxic behavior in our communities and take a clear stance against it.

For those who use the AOSP calendar app, have a look at Etar. It is a fork that shows the names of appointments in the month view.

Available in fdroid.

A bitcoin casino as sponsor for Wacken World Wide. This is sad.

Maps.me, open source, ads, 18 trackers

Magic Earth, closed source, no ads, free, 0 trackers


I'm looking for some storage space for an open source project. Is there any organization that can provide storage space? It is about 100GB.

Do you need a Twitter account to setup a Mastodon bot that mirrors a Twitter user?

Do you want to create a track for hiking or biking without hassle? Have a look at brouter. You can easily create a track, export it as kml or gpx.


Then, you can load it with Maps (fork of maps.me on fdroid).

Brouter is actually a library to be used in other apps, e.g. Osmand or c:geo. It will also take height differences into account when creating a route.

I discovered my first hidden camera at an AirBnB last week in Yerevan, Armenia. Always scan the wifi when you get to a new place!! #surveillance #nmap #privacy #dystopia #security #badposture

Those of you who use a custom rom on their phones: Which model do you use and what is your experience, especially with the camera?
