I love that inferior date formats are struggling this year, ISO 8601 for life!

For real like Bandcamp is exactly the kind of service we *hoped* the internet would give us: “hey, people make things, they set their own price inc. free, we provide the storefront, you buy it and the money goes to the creator, you get it in a DRM-free format and can play it however you want, we just make money to keep going & improving and aren’t a VC-funded nightmare company of rampant reckless growth that will do something nightmarish and implode.”

We need more media platforms like that.

I like #blackfriday . I get emails from newsletters I almost forgot to unsubscribe from

The #tape collection. All the blanks and mixtapes I’ve collected. I love finding mixes made by someone else. #music

messenger, while operating from Switzerland, is now owned by a US holdings company. They also quietly updated their privacy policy to some very vague language. PrivacyTools.io got a response from Wire's CEO after questioning them about the news and it didn't inspire much confidence. As a result, PrivacyTools.io is no longer recommending the Wire platform on their website.

I wonder if finding this sort of aesthetic sexier than the designs cars have today means I'm an old person. :blobcatthinking2:

I know there’s a lot of Wire users here, what are everyone’s thoughts on the recent developments there?

Being removed from privacytools.io due to lack of transparency in their recently discovered sale to a US entity.

Looks like a lot of users are jumping to Signal, or less user friendly options.

Thinking about reworking my sites, and came across this in some icon research.

Loaded with FOSS icons. Mastodon, PixelFed, PeerTube, Liberapay. Very cool

Looks like an extra “many” popped in there. Oops!
Should say I float between many hobbies

Hello (again) Fosstodon!

I’ve been away a little while but I’ve returned! Thought I’d do a little intro again.

I’m Wyatt, I have Aspergers and many float between many hobbies and interests. Lately I’ve been into cassettes, I love vintage audio.

Studied audio engineering school.

Big into open source, privacy and self hosting.

Very happy to be back!

De-googling yourself is ridiculous.
And thoroughly necessary.

Nextcloud Admins: Have you used Nextcloud Social and gotten it working with external mastodon instances? I can see external accounts, but my toots don't make it out of the local server and I can't see the account from here.

Because they stack the crowd with employees. When a product they touched gets mentioned on stage, they cheer and clap. Crowd mentality kicks in and everyone claps for everything.

It's smart marketing, but also gets old fast.

A win for #opensource in Canada.

Somehow left a cat5 cable hooked up to my desktop for who knows how long... nothing like needlessly limiting throughput by a factor of 10

Just switched my girlfirend's PC over to Solus from Elementary. Amazingly how much easier getting everything she needed running was.

I kept running into stupid bugs like her wireless mouse lagging every 5 seconds, and got sick of patching over "features" the new release implemented.

@kev @mike 3 newjack.city accounts with not posts and an obscene amount of follows have followed me tonight. Worth looking into

Has anyone ever tried Wasabi? (Not for sushi!) wasabi.com

Looks like a really cost efficient way to have remote storage.

You pay per GB used ($4.99 for 1TB).

Seems great for a remote backup location.

to perform better and more similarly to another.
I think the greatest power and tool comes in the form of choice and we should exercise that as much as possible! (2/2)
