I just found the best image viewer since ACDSee (at least for me):


Instance admin just lost their job, might need help 

Mstdn.social is one of the largest and nicest instances on the Fediverse, run by an enthusiastic admin called @stux

Unfortunately Stux has today found out that they are fired from their day job 😞

However, by happy coincidence, Stux had just set up a hosting company. If you need web hosting, domain names etc please consider using Stuxhost so that Stux can continue working:


Does it worth to buy a video card (probably an RX 550, as these things are too expensive here) coming from an onboard Intel HD 610 if I don't play games?

This website is very beautiful. It shows the wind of the entire world.


Cool! I just added my XMPP OMEMO fingerprint to .

Now everyone can easily verify the fingerprinting.

Big thanks to the #FOSDEM and the #Matrix team!

Hi all,

What do you use instead of Whatpsapp? Or what are you planning to use?
I use Threema, but unfortunately most people don't want to pay for something... :(
I don't want to use Signal, because that's based in the US.
So then there aren't much known options anymore.
What do you all use?
What should I let my friends use, who don't want to use threema?

OK #fediverse , I need your help

I am looking for a old school "guest book" that should be placed on a old-school website,



After running up a XMPP and a Matrix servers I will probably stick to XMPP and shutdown Matrix.

For the clients, Matrix ones are way more beautiful, but out of the "reply to" function, all the rest I had the same experience on both clients. A few encryption issues on both and I lose a few messages on Matrix.

For the servers, even using Dendrite, that would be very lightweight, it is still way heavier than Ejabberd. And the Matrix federations are very slow, while XMPP are instantaneous.

For anyone looking for an alternative to after recent acquisition by , there's gadgetbridge.org/ which is a app for several fitness trackers that allows you use them without the vendor's proprietary app/service.

Unfortunately, it doesn't currently support devices.

I should start using more GUS and less Qwant/DDG/etc.

I opened now an old VM with Windows XP and remembered how good Windows was someday.

I was used to change between Linux and Windows since 1997~1998, but in the last couple of years it became barely impossible to use Windows.

Everything is slow, items have too much space on screen, things are unnecessary confusing etc. The impression is that they were trying to do so many different things at the same time and just got lost in the middle.

If you are NixOS power user and know how to create nixpackages, please contact me!
Rt appreciated.
