Cabal, the open-source & p2p group chat I've worked on with friends, is in a quadratic funding pilot experiment run by Open Collective!

What that means for us, as an example: for every 10 USD donated, we get a total of 83 USD

boosts appreciated 🖤

Idea: Standardized code of conduct documents for ActivityPub instances similar to MIT/GPL for open source, that not only includes current moderation policies, but also a sort of philosophy for how future moderation policies are chosen.

Would help users make better choices of servers, as some servers are run by admins that ban topics they don't personally like.

The scholar.social instance has banned "Advertisement or apologia for cryptocurrencies, NFT's, or multi-level marketing schemes."


So glad I didn't sign up for this instance.

New rule: Always keep a blanket in your car, whether it’s for random picnics on a spur of the moment or for keeping warm in unexpectedly cold times

I use Signal’s “Note to self” feature as my note taking app on my phone, since I can easily access notes from my laptop for adding to my knowledge base

Spending the summer in Iceland, and got my first moleskin notebook to fill up while I’m there 👍

We've all appreciated those award-winning commercials worthy of every bit of praise, but we also got our fair share of dreadful ads. Soon we will release an on/off-button for Ad-blocking in our app (beta out any day now). Until then, do this if you please:

Add and test any or all of these DNS servers under advanced settings and give us your feedback: – for Ad-blocking – for Tracker blocking – for Ad + Tracker blocking

andrew lee just seized over 700 channels on freenode because they mentioned libera.chat in their topic.

This includes projects like openbsd, wikimedia, FOSDEM, etc.

archive.is/uHw1g shows 720 channels that match what is being checked.

here's an example log: gist.github.com/pushcx/ab2a1d5

boost this if you care about foss in any way.

Any other cool devs on mastodon with fun projects to check out?

Also check out Devine Lu Linvega for awesome, low-tech projects


They've made tons of amazing projects and games, and are most notably working on uxn, a small virtual machine that allows them to port all their software to any platform they want by porting the VM


Anyone interested in cool devs and rust projects, check out @nerdypepper and his project dijo, which is a scriptable habit tracker with vim keybinds


Here's how the fans currently work on my machine:

Power on, 30 deg C
Wait: Temperature rises slowly to 50 deg C while idle
After being idle for a few minutes, fans activate, with nothing running besides X

Was looking into undervolting my laptop; no dice. Apparently it's hard-disabled as a security vulnerability

Spent five hours now trying to disable the fans on my laptop, because when I have a single terminal running it’s like I’m at the airport

Still can’t figure out how to turn them off. Tempted to get an arm machine just for traveling, I can’t afford to have my laptop keep draining this fast

Anyone have a good Linux on Arm device recommendation? Battery life is top priority

What's everyone's experience with Linux on ARM? How's the battery-life, access to libraries, performance, etc?

You can even control playback using the ssh terminal!
