After my run this morning, I decided to strip my bike down and do some maintenance. I had some new tyres to put on and what I thought were the right size bearings for the rear wheel hub.

After finding out the ball bearings were too small, I cleaned it all down, greased it up and hopefully it will keep on spinning for another few weeks.

Then the tyres. Holy moly. It should never, ever take that long to get tyres on. They were brutal. 45 bloody sweltering, sweaty minutes.

Hey Fosstodon! I'm Andrew and I'm an Operations Engineer by day (and night, the middle of the night). I've been a FOSS user for about 15 years now and haven't used social media for the last few.

I've rediscovered Mastodon and decided to join you guys. I've already seen a few great posts in 30 minutes, so I'm looking forward to what I'll learn and what I can share!

Howdy, my name's Jake and I've been a FOSS user for about a year now (Running GNU/Linux) and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and community so far. I've followed a few prominent FOSS youtubers such as @distrotube and @christitus which has led me here! I hope to learn more and make some like-minded friends through Fosstodon. Best wishes to everyone!

Sorry, let my inner child loose for a second. I've recomposed myself again.

What's the status of RSS? Is it dead? Are we ever going to see it get back its former glory? Will it get replaced in anyway?

Microsoft Teams update has finally hit allowing the pop-out meetings. FINALLY!

Headset bearings on the bike all lubed up and replaced. Just the rear hub to do now which is a bit more tricky.

It's also wanking it down outside and taking my bike apart in the kitchen gets raised eyebrows... especially to that extent. So it may have to wait for the rain to stop.

Hey folks! 👋

My name is Kevin and I’m new to fosstodon and mastodon in general. I’m pretty big into all things security and open source so this seemed like the place to be.

That moment when you switch from a tab with a site that has a dark background to something that's bright white

I'm pretty upset with 's performance.

So I've decided to switch to for a week and see how I feel. Do you folks have any other recommendation?

I'm conflicted about using the Blink engine. However, my productivity is equally important and Firefox is not able to offer this at the moment, not on desktop.

I know this is just words right now, but still, pretty huge for such a company to have a theoretical plan like this.

Would have been unthinkable not long ago.
