We used to be the #1 alternative to Instagram on alternativeto.net/software/ins but someone marked our project as "Discontinued" because registration is closed on a specific instance.

Pixelfed has never been more alive!

@dansup @michelamarie 5 years of CS taught me a lot of cool stuff. But about 0 practical things for Web development. Sure foundations and so on... but also relatively little focus. If you know what u want, time can be spent much better

Pixelfed will be a year old in a few days.

I'm a high school dropout that has never taken any CS or computer classes.

Web development is just a hobby of mine, I work in the auto industry.

I'm so proud of this project, I never would have imagined that I could make something like this.

Thank you for helping me realize credentialism isn't so important as you think. ❤️ :pixelfed:

Now that Google has discontinued plus and now no longer has a social network, how long before they buy Twitter?

Subsequently, how long will it take them to discontinue it after that?

After spending months trying to figure out why the i915 module wouldnt load on boot without mkinitrd being run and then only requiring me call it distinctly.. i finally figured out how make localyesconfig works by running "grep -R --include=Makefile '\bMODULENAME\.o\b" Alls well now. i915 compiled completely in the kernel without having to load the module or use some kernel options. ALL 4 PENGUINS SHOW UP FOR THE ENTIRE HIGH RES BOOT SEQUENCE!!

Does anyone here have any opinions on Ungoogled Chromium?

The reason I'm asking is because I've been using it since yesterday and it's really fast and the developer seems pretty cool.

I should probably introduce myself. I've been using GNU/Linux for over 20 years now, since way back in the Slackware days. I've been a regular attendee of some of the US Linux conferences, and have finally gotten up the nerve to present at a few. I also do a bit of bicycle and motorcycle riding when the weather allows.
