OK, so #tootdon communicates with this server: api.tootdon.ooo

This server is hosted in the USA(!!!)

There are several endpoints: /api/v1/instances gives a paginated list of instances, and seems to be the *only* one that doesn't require authentication.

There's also /api/v1/statuses and /api/v1/users. Not sure how authentication to this API works yet...

By the way, it also appears to be tied with this company: mobirocket.com/

This is a bit depressing.

This underlying problem needs to become a priority. Either pressuring #github to go free software or getting free software to go elsewhere.

Github becoming synonymous with open source just muddies free software waters more.

Free Software needs free tools.

Also this to go inside the house end yet. Ugh, have to crawl under the house now 😟

@cobra2 PDL/Schneider brand, they’re pretty good (you’d hope so for the price).
This is a temp install in wife’s office we’re setting up in a portable cabin, otherwise it’d be in a wall jack.

@mike In case you're interested, my personal site with Pico is now pulling from a GitHub repo. The RSS feed is also generating correctly, parsing JSON from the Github API into an XML doc.

@PeteMoss hmm. Sounds like I’d enjoy doing the project but tricky usually means time-sink, and wife’s list of jobs isn’t getting any shorter 🤔

@xyzzy @cassolotl some of us must do when we wear black....

Question for those who use WhatsApp: why not Signal? It's the same encryption, but much more likely that Facebook hasn't hacked it so they can read your messages.

@PeteMoss wait what are you doing? I’m looking at something to upgrade my HRV system with heat transfer and their pricing is bullshit.

Guess I should sort out this mess today. Also need to crawl under my house to run Ethernet.

Anyone know of a foss alternative to Android Auto? I dream of one day being able to use OSM on-screen while flipping through Spotify.
