Just half an hour ago felt the biggest earthquake of my life, 2020 chill the feck down

Are you bored yet?

Since lots of you (us included) are locked in their houses trying to avoid contact with other human beings, we thought it would be nice to spend this time socializing in front of computer with bunch of strangers you know so well from chats, social federated networks and whom you most probably never seen in real life.

Let's spend an evening drinking booze, eating junk, and shooting one another on Teeworlds. The first edition of Quarantine with Disroot starts on Saturday 21.03.2020 20:00 CET and will go on until last one standing. Server will probably stay on for the whole week or two if there are people willing to play.

Let's kick some CoVID butt.

Quick guide:
1. To get you started, install Tweeworlds either using your package manager if you are using a proper operating system like linux/bsd or go to teeworlds website and download it for your platform.
2. Once you're done with that, start the game.
3. Fisrt select "Setup" to add your players name, choose and customize your Tee is you like.
4. Hit play and find "Quarantine with Disroot" and join us.

The game is rather straight forward and easy to learn, and since probably we are all noobs, no worries we will equally suck at it :)

Unless your program's (web based or otherwise) core focus is on phone calling, there is absolutely no reason to require a phone number. It violates privacy, it's inconvienient, it's flaky, and it's simultaneously both too high and too low of a barrier. Please use actual security and anti-spam measures, not phone numbers.

And here we go: A little article about federated ecosystems like the :fediverse: #Fediverse and :matrix: #Matrix. And guess who is missing out on it? #Fedora! I want to change that and it would be great if you could help. Therefore I ask:

:fedora: Fedora, where are you?


Help us to get Fedora on board with all these awesome, new technologies we use every day already. :blobfoxwink:

I hope the invisible hand of the market washes hands regularly

Signed up at openstreetmap.org and fixed nearby areas. But there's more to do. I should do it over a long time. This is very addictive.


2 months of downtime on my virt :fedora: test server and less than 100mb of updates

Considering I'm used to the daily updates of the desktop edition it feels a bit wrong 😅

It's amazing just how addictive Kittens Game is...

(It's also OSS. Tempting to make as a first-project for translating it into an ncurses game.)

"Guppe groups look like regular users you can interact with using your existing account on any ActivityPub service, but they automatically share anything you send them with all of their followers. ... New groups are created on demand, just search for or mention @[YourGroupNameHere]@gup.pe* and it will show up"

* without the [], I just didn't want to create a "YourGroupNameHere" group with this post ;)
