Hey, fellow Mastodonians, what is your favourite music, like genres or bands etc?

For me, it is blues (Ben Ezra, Fat Walters), piano jazz (Fazil Say, Mieczysław Kosz), classical guitar jazz (De Lucia, Di Meola), old eletronic (Jarre, Koto, Kraftwerk), a'capella covers (Pentatonix, Home Free), and traditional Irish music (Loreena McKennit, The Henry Girls, Altan, Anuna).

When coding, some mild electronic-trans is my sweet spot. Keeps me focused for prolonged time.

I've remapped Capslock to Escape and I will never go back. Try it!

LinkedIn is building a gig marketplace, taking on UpWork and Fiverr - aimgroup.com/2021/02/22/linked

Tying one's professional reputation, hiring chances, and therefore income, tighly inside a single platform. A dangerous idea: making a platform the sole gatekeeper of peoples' income and career chances.

Anyone else here got VR?

Would love to do some kind of virtual meetup.

RT @NASAJPL@twitter.com

JUST, WOW.😍
Grab the popcorn because the @NASAPersevere@twitter.com rover has sent us a one-of-kind video of her Mars landing. For the first time in history, we can see multiple angles of what it looks like to touch down on the Red Planet. #CountdownToMars

Question for those more experienced with Mastodon... Fosstodon is for people who love free software and I'm enjoying the community. However, as I stated in my intro I do have a bunch of other hobbies. Is there a way to view the "local" time lines of other instances to find other people in those instances without having to resort to using the federated timeline? There's only so much anime pron and conspiracy nut jobs I can take...

In an effort to promote the use of open and FOSS platforms rather than proprietary and locked down ones, as postmarketOS we created our own community on Lemmy!
Please join us in making it an awesome FOSS and federated alternative to our subreddit!

If you want an encrypted resolver, based on Europe, that supports both DoH and DoT, I'm having a good experience with @libreops (libredns.gr/).

Here you have their recent budget report for last year (2020):
