I am releasing a new project to, hopefully, make some money so that I can support our TROM project and myself. This is it -->>

So. I provide managed instances for Mastodon, Peertube, Nextcloud, Friendica, and a few other services. On top of this I am making any kind of website in Wordpress. This is my "skill" and so I will try to make some money like this. I have to, I have no choice.

But listen.

I am not making a "business" out of this. I want to do a decent job at it, so I will only take 20-30 projects. Enough to sustain myself and have the time to focus on TROM, plus be able to properly manage these paid-for websites.

I tried to provide really cheap and very "tempting" offers, if anyone is interested, since I will only post once about this on my profile, the rest go on the Federated profile of the project -->>

Here is what I offer:





I can setup huge instances up to 25TB of diskspace. And provide support over email or chat (Matrix).

If you think anyone may be interested, give it a share.

Hi! I'd be interested to buy a band and buds which are compatible with .

I see from your website that a number of devices are supported but it would be nice to know which ones are "more" supported in order to make a "safe" buy.

I'd like to buy a Mi Band 6 + Galaxy Buds, for example, but I'm open to other devices if they are more supported (more features, easier setup, etc.).

Is there such an (updated) matrix? The one on your site doesn't include Mi Band 6.

I'm Simon Phipps, an older geek lucky enough to have worked on significant tech at some well-known companies & in several open source communities. Too many things to list here, see my About page.

I now work on standards & policy for OSI and help communities with governance things. I also co-host the FLOSS Weekly webcast.

I post about anything that fascinates me - usually music, politics, travel and food as well as about open source.

Progressive, unaligned, he/him

Hey all! I just joined the fediverse and found that it's a nice thing to start with an #introduction.

My name is Nico Alt, you might don't know me but if you do, it's most probably due to the stuff I did at #Briar and #FDroid. Currently I'm not active there but instead focus on university/#physics stuff where I contribute my little part to #quantum #cryptography (multi-party #BBM92 time-bin coding, to be more specific). Other interests are #p2p and #tor, feel free to talk to me about them!

I'm on the lookout for my next adventure career-wise, so if anyone knows of fun and interesting work on FOSS, let me know please!

You ungrateful cynics complaining about Mozilla working with Facebook and getting half a billion dollars from Google every year to protect your privacy just don’t understand the sacrifices a corporation must make to pay a CEO $3M+. Have some empathy, people!

TIL about , one of the world's most popular chess servers, run entirely on free software by a nonprofit, ad-free, supported by donations with a budget of ~$420K/year according to

They've been around since 2010.

As awesome as this is to see, imagine how many free/open nonprofit alternatives to Big Tech platforms would exist if, down to the municipal level, we decided to support them with funding & infrastructure.

Happy First Sunday in Advent to you!🕯️
Made a #snowflake #pattern #free to use for your festive seasonal decoration purposes. Not seamless, though, because I like it better this way.

If you want to #selfhost but don't have the skills, you should really try #yunohost IMHO it's the best way to free yourself from #gafam

Basically it's a headless server, once installed, includes a preconfigured xmpp chat server plus an email server. In addition, it allows for one click installs of many excellent applications like #nextcloud #mastodon #wordpress #bitwarden #peertube and many more. Give it a spin with this handy demo instance

Please boost!

What do you think about the coding competition ‘Youth Hacking 4 Freedom' () for teenagers organised by @fsfe ??

🔥 Are any of you going to participate?

I'm interested but really don't know yet if it's an opportunity to seize or not for me...

Boosts appreciated!

Europe's Software Problem

Europe’s communication needs are currently almost exclusively delivered by Chinese hardware that connects us to US-based platforms. For a variety of reasons, this is not a good idea.

Hey there everyone! :)

I'm norG, also known as Dennis, a regular dude from Germany.
Just joined the Fediverse and hoping to find interesting people, have friendly conversations and explore the content.

I love photography, primary nature, on occasion I shoot people, weddings etc. If there is music in my ears it's even better, mostly all kinds of metal, but I like many genres. Other than that it's mostly PC fiddling or gaming and DIY things.

Happy to be here!

My partner is recovering from top surgery and having a very hard time with the Ace bandage we've been told to use for wrapping their chest during healing. Honestly the wrap is causing more pain than the incisions are. This is terrible for obvious reasons and we need something else, please recommend and / or boost.
