Damn, I love smolweb so much.
It's so peaceful. So kind and supportive.
Like, I literally haven't seen any hate speech on gemini, gopher or tildeverse.
People actually discuss and elaborate there!
They write long, thoughtful essays about things, not 300 words posts full of buzzwords.
I don't know, I feel much more comfortable reading midnight.pub or station than any popular social media.
Just wanted to say this, have a nice day.
I just was reminded to renew my donation to my favorite Mastodon instance. Instances on the Fediverse need funds to operate. In most cases these funds come from us the users. If you like your instance please find the Support Us page of that instance and make a donation to keep the Fediverse alive.
Mastodon plans to eliminate the local timeline and replace that by groups across instances. I believe this would damage the federated structure of Mastodon. Why care to be in the right place if you can be somewhere and join a group. Who is going to keep the group clean? Why should anyone care to run such a fine place as Fosstodon?
If I would have wanted to use Twitter I wouldn't be here.
Why do FOSS projects have this urge to dismantle themselves as soon as they get big?
Official #Mastodon apps now available for iOS and Android ✨
An album of ambient music I did on Linux using Qtractor, Ardour, LMMS (yes, I used 3 different DAWs... it just depended on how a song developed), Audacity, ZynFusion, Calf, CAPS, and Steve Harris's LADSPA plugins.
It's CC-BY-SA 4.0 and priced at $0. Should you choose to pay for it, the money will be donated to relief efforts for Ukraine.

Added more MOD files and some C64 SID files too; now the MODcast has 522.8 days worth of continuous playtime of over 242,000 MOD files.
Finally got the drive hooked up to the PC and updating a now very old install of #FreeBSD. Not sure if to go to 12.3 and then 13.0 or just straight into 13.0 after pkg finishes updating everything (I already ran freebsd-update).
Side note: Looks like I'll have to buy a new IDE/SATA to USB kit for testing hard drives. The power switch on the one I have gave out. After more than 10 years, it had a good run. 😕
I kinda reworked my blog's mastodon based comments with cleaner, safer code and a better CSS. Consider taking a look at it on any of my blogposts :P
I'll write about it tomorrow lol
Not self promoting or anything I promise
After who knows what in ETH gas fees, setting up Fleek, a local IPFS daemon in a container and Pinata for pinning. I finally have a stable, resolvable IPFS copy of my blog that is updated whenever the main sit is updated.
Just an old linux user
