All my instruments Show more
Stuff I play:
Native American drone flute
Stuff I have but haven't had time to learn:
The majority of these instruments, especially the last ones, were gifts from relatives and a few friends; I don't waste money on instruments I'm not going to play nor do I have the money _to_ waste.
I just got on #keybase!

I recently published another article on my blog, this time about the Open Source Design Summit we organized this November in Tirana, Albania. Read the article for an in-depth analysis:
Next up, some more articles about online privacy and services.
Feedback appreciated (and ideas for more posts too).
1. User settings: 2FA, Bio, PFP, etc import/export, etc.
2. General Settings: Background, theme, notification filtering, timeline view, etc.
3. User search
4. Expand to see the rest of the conversation
5. Open the post in a new tab (only works if public)
6. Character limit: Pleroma lets you post pretty much without a limit. This raised the question of how Mastodon handles it. You can see that it actually shows all the content if you expand it:
Toots look quite nice as well, however there aren't multiple panes for federated, local, following, etc. like there are for Mastodon. I have seen that Pleroma is fully compatible with any Mastodon client and, according to what I read, that even includes the Mastodon WebUI which is a big plus; I love versatility and options.
I refuse to use Netflix or one of these other mass data mining video streaming services. I installed #HandBrake and the libdvdcss library and started ripping my DVD's and copy them to my OpenELEC box. All this #DRM on DVD's is making this very annoying but it works so far.

After nearly a year of using @ArchLabsLinux's #polybar (it works so well), I finally got around to making my own. I also found and started using a desktop audio visualiser called #glava. My dotfiles are linked below if you're interested!
There are a lot of screenshots in this toot because I'm not seeing any indication that there are any attached and I kept uploading them. I only realised that they were attached because I posted this a second ago and saw them 🤔
Dear people who write bots: please respect the #nobot tag in people's bios.
Also if your bot is auto-following people, it needs to explain *why* it wants access to follower-only toots!
It would suck if most people felt forced to turn on follow approvals just because of unsolicited spam bot follows.
Excuse me while I go below my ISP up. I'm hoping the rebuild will fix my perpetual connection issues.
Currently working on Mastodome, an alpha-development stage desktop client for Mastodon using Python & Qt. There's still some work to do before 0.2 is ready for release.
This is running on Ubuntu MATE 18.04 LTS with the dark themes enabled. Eclipse with the PyDev plugin is in the background. #screenshotsunday
I want to take a quick second here to thank all of our veterans around the world for their service and their sacrifices. I'd love to tag each and every one, but unfortunately I don't know who all the vets here are. A special thank you to @kev who not only served, but makes #Fosstodon possible for all of us. I also want to thank my dad, even though he's not reading this.
I'd like to set up my own instance of one and the lack of a 500 char limit, purported speed, versatility with regards to client compatibility, and #federation with #GNUSocial, #Pixelfed, Masto, and others all-in-one is very attractive about Pleroma but Masto supports migration from one instance to another while keeping all your follows and followers (iirc).

Fosstodon is a Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
