Thanks for the kind words!
I just want to point out that I am part of the Librehosters ( which is a community of likeminded people like me that also provide free tools, services and communities.

I would rather see that @switchingsoftware promotes Librehosters so people can chose whatever provider that suits them :)

Both @amolith and @perflyst does offer robust services that I really recommend to other people.


@rgggn @selea @switchingsoftware ah, and I just realized what is "Mirror" there, it's a multiple GNU/Linux distros' repository mirrors. Even Trisquel is there. It provides both ISOs and package repositories. This is really amazing.

@rgggn @selea the services he provide are: disposable email, mastodon instance, privatebin, searx, mirror, freedns, mailing lists, matrix server, etc. Wow. This deserves support. Thanks @rgggn for letting me know.

Hello @switchingsoftware, please consider this for your All-In-One Alternatives page. Thank you.

@selea is keeping quite a few nice services running at

He's on and deserves some support:

Got a new car. Want to change the radio out and put a car computer in. Looking for a #freesoftware #opensource solution that will be able to do GPS, Reverse cam, and bluetooth audio from phone.

This car has OnStar, and I will be disabling it. Will try to repurpose the microphone, and GPS, and anything else it has built in (think it has a camera in the mirror too... )

I don't have service with OnStar but the light turned green. Does that mean someone was accessing it?


Folks, the one thing that #meetup solved was not "RSVPs for events", it was getting events in front of a motivated community and promoting them. Rebuilding the RSVP functionality isn't going to wrestle anyone from Meetup's new changes. What we need are folks who are willing to try out alternatives and report back to their community on what works best for them. already exists and has users on it. Try that first and let's get the "community" part of meetup started.

Possibly Shutting Down VidCommons 

Google is currently on witchhunt for alternative #YouTube frontends: They target the services as well as their users.

In the last week, #Invidious instances first got IP banned, and once that was circumvented stopped via heavy rate limits.

Now they manage to associate #NewPipe users with google accounts somehow, and suspend these accounts:

Now that these frontends got #Google's attention, I don't think we can sustain this cat & mouse game for long. 😔
