Who's on mastodon in #manchester ? I'm moving up there for a job after uni this year, it'd be interesting to know who's on here there.
Reading Iain M. Banks's Excession at the moment, excellent book.
Taking in mind that it was published in '96, I find it interesting how the conversations between the Minds resemble internet forums:
That was the zeitgeist of the times I guess.
cool software recommendation: xpra
it's kinda like screen for x, it lets you run applications remotely over ssh and stuff, including mirroring the active display
I was quite befuddled earlier, as I noticed that many instances were using glitch-soc, but I had this confused with the code collaboration website.
I was thinking "Oh, that's clever, they must have it setup so that anyone on the instance can edit the server code in real time! Neat!"
Of course after I realised my confusion, I figured that that wouldn't make sense and would lead to many bugs, crashes and tragedy. An easier way to remotely collab in real time like that would be nice tho.
I just realized: One thing I'm missing from the Fediverse are event calendars.
I'm currently in a group of people planning a climate protest, and we're using Facebook to post events there for people to subscribe to.
I'm not aware of any federated social network / tool where I could post a calendar event and people could subscribe to it.
That would be a really useful feature to get more people off Facebook.
Facebook reportedly plans to integrate its messaging services on Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger
Note to self: fully switch to GitLab before this happens. 🤦♂️
Wow, fancy that. Web ad giant Google to block ad-blockers in Chrome. For safety, apparently
When your #3dPrinting job finishes successfully and this is the remaining filament which has already jumped off of the spool. :-)
Dear #fediverse. I work as an #architect and design buildings that harm the planet. I am looking for a practicing #engineer who can teach me building energy modelling using #opensource tools. I have a background in software dev, run #gentoo #linux and am willing to learn down to the details.
I do not have a background in heat transfer or thermodynamics, which is why I am asking for a tutor.
I promise to use this to design better buildings.
Please help retoot this so I can find someone.
#3dprinting skill levels:
- Me printing coaster after coaster.
On the bright side, they're cheaper then from the shop so ay oh. I figured out to lower the bed temperature as well to stop the prints curling up, and to raise the hotend temp as I'm using ridiculously large layer heights for these things. Here's to education.
CS student, interested in Linux and FOSS applications, decentralisation and privacy, and 3d printing.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
