Err, didn't want to mention it for all the follow-up toots, but ok.
Another change is I enabled follow requests for that account. I probably should have done that from the beginning here, but that ship has long since sailed. But on a new account I can just do it. :)
@alex_m Since the single account option has won, that account will have both posts like I already had here, as well as posts like I have on twitter's alexm_personal account. So IRL stuff, video game stuff etc. I will try to use CWs for it, and follower-only posts for more personal stuff, so I think this can work better here than on Twitter, and most people I know manage it just fine with just one account.
Announcement: following up from https://floss.social/web/@exalm/108193722219226612, I'm completely moving to a new account: @alex_m
This instance has been very good, and I don't really have problems with it. However, I kinda think a domain-specific instance doesn't suit me very well at this point so I picked a general purpose one this time. :)
Ok, so single account won. So I guess that's it then. :)
I spent the last couple of days working on a library to store your secrets safely using either the Secret Service or the file backend (backed by the secrets portal, compatible with libsecret): https://crates.io/crates/oo7
Huge thanks to Sophie for implementing the file backend format, @maximiliano for handling the encrypted sessions.
Our community has spoken, and the result is pretty clear!
So in light of https://floss.social/web/@exalm/108132091834538281, I made a new account on mastodon.online. Not telling the name yet, so people don't follow it right away.
So, a poll. Should I keep this account for GNOME stuff and use that one for personal stuff (basically https://twitter.com/alexm_personal) or should I move completely and use it for everything?
Not including "use the current account for everything" because e.g. I didn't have follow requests enabled and so I'm not super comfortable posting personal stuff here.
Turns out the date was supposed to be 15th and not 25th though. I misread it when creating a reminder.
Okay, it happened - Shortwave 3.0 is now available! 🎉
Get it while it's hot!
Where is the @gnome Foundation even going?
I wrote this post to shed some light on a programme the Foundation wants to conduct, how it will impact the GNOME Project, and how the contributors can help shaping it.
✨️ I made a thing! 🎉️

And if you do, please spread the word!
Another option would be to just post those things onto this account, but I'm not sure it would be interesting to a lot of people. (3/3)
In light of a certain clown wanting to buy the birdside, I've been wondering if it should have a counterpart on fedi as well, but not sure what instance that should be. Does anyone know an appropriate instance for this? I kinda find it difficult to choose one as most are either regional or domain-specific.
I'm not gonna use a regional one because there isn't one that would fit me, and domain-specific ones just mean locking yourself down into writing about specific topic again. (2/3)
