Now is when we know if we'll get enought for a federated tool.
Sharing is caring ;).

We've got big news.

After months of work, Tor Browser is now stable on Android.

As it's the 10th anniversary of Minecraft, a reminder that there's a free open alternative called Minetest:


You can follow it on the Fediverse at:


It has many game modes including online multiplayer servers.

France's largest free software organisation @Framasoft has just launched a crowdfunding campaign for an open federated events tool, Mobilizon:


Mobilizon would replace Facebook Events and similar closed services.

It would use ActivityPub, so people would be able to organise events on the Fediverse.

You can also follow its Mastodon account here:

Are you not feeling motivated to go outside for a healthy walk? How about downloading the application StreetComplete from @fdroidorg and start helping out OpenStreetMap by adding missing data about the places around you!

I started today and it made my daily walks a lot more fun! It also motivates me to walk even more and visit new places that I wouldn't visit otherwise. :)

An interview with Iyán Méndez Veiga

YOU: so the A in RAID stands for "Array"?
US: Yes.
YOU: doesn't that mean saying "RAID array" is redundant?
US: Of course. That's what the R is for.

Mon petit doigt me dit qu'une nouvelle version de #PeerTube ne va pas tarder à sortir...

Il reste quelques chaînes à traduire, go go sur


Merci 👍


A new version of #PeerTube will be released soon....

There are still some strings to translate, go go go on


Thanks 👍

Time to announce this plan: I am working on a redesign of the joinmastodon.org server picker. I am also planning to switch out the data source from instances.social to my own API. The main reason for this is the addition of a new guarantee that I would be able to give when linking to servers from joinmastodon.org: That those servers would meet certain standards and enforce some basic rules of conduct.

nnn is fast and the interface is simple, with links traversable with hjkl and the arrow keys. Up and down scrolls through the listing, right enters a directory or opens a file, and left goes up a directory.

nnn supports batch renaming with an editor, quick pager/edit launching, archive listing, filtering, link creation, and several other useful features.

The last machine I had is now no more. I wiped the disk clean and tried just for fun... and it's feels just like Christmas!

@cwebber If Moore's Law still held, it would be a much different question. A 3x decrease would only be a few years old, so despite being objectively much slower, I'd be much more used to it because it would be so recently in the past.

A great deal of the reluctance to change, I think, is not just that the hardware's gotten better, but the software that we use _expects_ that modern, fast hardware. My (and I suspect other people's) answer was based on the assumption of continuing to use the software we already do as normal. But, if something like your hypothetical actually happened, and lots of people started using computers that were several times slower, I think we'd see the software adapt to that.

If the software adapted to work about equally well on 3x slower hardware as current software does on current hardware, I'd be much more willing to take the slower hardware, knowing that I'd still be able to do everything I currently do and be similarly productive. But, current software designed for modern computers, running on a 3x slower device, would for a great many tasks be unbearable.

From my mum, with a hat tip to @MicroSFF

The traveler from the past was recently arrived and anxious to please.
The baby was new, and the traveler smiled eagerly. “Aww! Boy or girl?”
The parent’s look was offended, appalled, alarmed. “It will be many years before Sonoma will be making sexual choices. Why would you ask such a question now?”

In case you missed it, you can follow people across the Fediverse even if you're using a different kind of site.

For example, here's a PixelFed account:


...here's a PeerTube account...


...here's a WriteFreely account...


...here's a Plume account...


...here's a Friendica account...


...and you can follow all of them from Mastodon.

Just click on the @ link to see their profile, and then click on Follow.
