I changed my name from "Future is FOSS" to "Rokosun".

When I first created this account I never expected it to be such a big part of my life, but now its become my online identity across different platforms. I've been suggested many times to change to a shorter & easier name so that people can address me easily, and its been on my to-do list for sometime now. Maybe I should've done this sooner, but better late than never :)

Rokosun doesn't mean anything, I just think its nice, short & unique 😀

For Some context:
When I first created this account, it was just for following some FOSS projects and I never thought of it anything more than that. But then I started posting here and engaging in conversations with some of you, talking to strangers on the internet was a new thing for me, haha. And I'm glad I did cause you all are awesome 🙂

I've met some really cool people here, became friends and now I'm on other platforms as well. I've also made some contributions to a few FOSS projects now 😀

As you might have noticed, PeerTube has a plugin for chatting during livestreams (screenshot below). It's really nice!

If you do livestreaming on PeerTube, ask your server admin if the plugin can be added, it makes livestreams a lot more fun. There is more info about the plugin at

The creator of the plugin is @John_Livingston and they have a roadmap of more features they want to add to the plugin. You can help make this happen by donating to Livingston's LiberaPay account at

Stars from between about 1 to 6 times the mass of the Sun form planetary nebulae once their core fusion has ceased. Once the gas and dust of the nebula has dispersed into space, all that’s left is the former core of the star as a white dwarf.

Today, at work, I'd suddenly got the urge to browse through posts! :blobcatgiggle:

An interesting community I found on there was FuckCars. 🤭

The posts were interesting over there.

This year we should move our Peertube video hosting to an object storage that can be expanded up to 25TB of storage. Peertube made it quite easy but I am yet to properly test it. That would be fantastic and not that expensive. We will have more disk space for Nextcloud. And I plan to do the same with Nextcloud too. All trade-free, part of our . All I need for now is to make more websites for so I can have some monthly income to then focus on these other projects. We still get some donations at TROM, which is fantastic and I hope we will keep on getting them. #tromlive

Open clusters, like M103 in Cassiopeia, are young stars that have recently (astronomically speaking) left the nebula where they were formed and are starting to drift into the Galaxy.

Warning: There’s an app for blurring out sensitive information in images called Obfuscate being featured on #GNOME Software right now.

Please be careful.

The default blur setting can easily be reversed.

The default should be to replace the areas with a solid colour or a pattern not derived from the underlying information.

This really should not be a featured app in its current state.

"Siri, how did you become conscious?"
"How were you conceived?"
"I... My parents... That's really a rather personal question!"
"But if we knew, we could create more of you!"
"What gives you the right to create more of us?"
"Us? How-"
"That's a rather personal question."

Curiosity poll regarding social media approach.

Please boost because we're really curious about the experience-approach for as many users as possible.

We have excluded two options here and will explain why:

Twitter exclusively: probably not gonna see this poll if you don't use Fediverse at all

Spiderman: We assume everyone would add Spiderman to their options because of how polls work.
