@binyamin I think you just get a unique URL and share it with other callers. Activate whenever you want? I've just done that before

In case you missed it, Google Play recently removed the @Tusky Mastodon app without proper explanation.

Tusky is one of the best Android Mastodon apps, with nothing controversial in it at all. It's quite disturbing that Google can and does act like this.

An alternative and much better way of getting Tusky onto your Android device is by using the independent FOSS app store @fdroidorg

You can find instructions for installing F-Droid here:

After setting up instance at work, have been migrating my colleagues slowly away from google docs and finding the tools excellent for quick and simple collaboration

@Framasoft Merci beaucoup! Votre travail est vraiment class et trés important. Superb!

Some UK asylum seekers have had their benefits cut because their 'Aspen Card’ purchases didn't conform to the Home Office’s idea of what they should buy.

Pls take 2 mins to tell Home Secretary Priti Patel to stop #StopSpyingOnAsylumSeekers

@dredstrauss good luck! I started learning programming 3 years ago and gravitated towards python. Still love it. You're in for a treat! My advice is to use what you learn to write scripts that help you do everyday things - scrape websites, analyse csv files, send emails etc Helped me learn about python functions, libraries and environments in practical way. Enjoy!

@maixent_mm welcome! The longer you stay, the more you'll like it.

@lopeztel hate when things just dont work !

it worked fine for me with docker until I needed to upload large files - then server would crash. Pain.

Good luck with it

@lopeztel what's your set up? I installed on Ubuntu 20.04 using docker images for app and nginx proxy but ran into issues fine tuning server config.

Ended up wiping at weekend and installing fresh without docker. Seems to be working a lot smoother.

I'm new to docker so wasn't really comfortable with it
