Great blog post about little things why Amiga was such great platform in the 90's. A few things I didnt know before.

@wizzwizz4 I'm not an admin of the instance.. I suppose blocking domains is instance wide setting.

How do I moderate/report comments on Peertube? It seems to be implemented in #2947 but I can't figure out how it works.

Thanks Jolla 1 for all these years! Mine has dead battery but I'll keep it as a museum piece. I'm still hoping to drop Android in favor of Sailfish once again.

Firefox tip: set reader.parse-on-load.force-enabled to true in about:config to always show reader mode button.

News about bundeswehr Matrix adoption in english. Also new Matrix user count mentioned: 25M+. It would be great to see Matrix as a European standard for messaging and it's a real possibility.

After a rather twisty journey we are overexcited to declare that Dendrite (the next-gen Golang homeserver from the core Matrix team) has officially entered beta!! 🎉 Don't trust it with your data yet, but please spin up an instance & help us hunt the bugs!

We just set up a posting pipeline Matrix -> Mastodon -> Twitter for hacklab updates with IFTTT. Seems to work!

Testing Element Desktop with monospace font for oldschool IRC look. Not sure if I'll keep it that way. Someone should also do a Matrix clone of mIRC for those who prefer it.
