I wish more people would use a on top of or even instead . Hashtags can be muted. Think about it.

@kevinflo I like your podcast. I thought you'd like to know.

's web UI has a builtin dark theme and it's gorgeous.

Blog if you can. Answer your own posts/emails if you find the solution. Writing about what you're doing will help other and probably yourself.

Got a new SSD and I am considering reinstalling my PC.
Which distro should I pick?


Guix officially is my preferred GNU/Linux distribution.

Cool package manager. Great docs. Expressive Scheme API. Easy to write new packages. Super friendly community.

I wish more people used and contributed to Guix.

What piece of financial advice do you need to be reminded of?

Mine is: it's easier to spend less than to earn more.

Anyone want to do a little #Wikipedia editathon for the #fediverse? Most of the articles are either very out of date, have incorrect information, or need clarification etc. I just added some stuff to the Spanish /fediverso page, but it could really use some work. :fediverse: :fediverse: :fediverse:

The twidere client is unmaintained for more than six months now. It's basically besides andStatus the only OSS twitter client that supports Twitter and Mastodon with a serious UX. It's a real problem for anyone who wants to convert over to mastodon in a soft break.

If anyone out there has the time and love to take this opportunity it would help the fediverse and many people out there for sure.

(-approved distro based on / but with a traditional release model) is planning to switch to a kernel.

Did you know that the small software label on profiles is clickable?
It will allow you to get information about the instance and also to know who is the admin of that instance. #Tip #Fedilab

I've been on the internet long enough to know that when people try to convince you of something you're skeptical of but they refuse to have a dialog because they "don't have the energy" or they can't provide sources and attribution to cite this data they're simply full of shit.

That's where we are on the internet now. It's like the Holy Wars. If you do not accept their world view without question you will be cancelled.

I'm always open to new information but I need more than lip service. If the answer is "but the scientists are wrong about this" that's gonna be a no from me, dawg. That's the same shit being peddled by the anti-vax and climate denier crowds.

Do better.

And if you don't have the energy to follow through, don't engage with people and don't cancel them. It's that easy.

You're not making the world a better place with these engagements. You're creating more angry and divisive culture because you don't have the temperament to chill the fuck out and let things slide. You become so full of rage that people are not as woke as you, and then you turn a potential ally into an enemy because you don't have the patience or discernment to navigate the situation.

If this is how you behave: you are the enemy of your own movement.

Peertube has scripts that allows you to upload a complete YouTube-Channel to a desired peertube account.

That way, you can also automatically mirror YouTube-Channels to a PeerTube Channel, from e.g. your laptop.

You don't have to own the instance, you just need an account on that instance.

🎉 #Mastodon and #Hometown hosting has now launched! Check it out at and @ me if you have any questions.

Developer-driven software distribution is a bad idea, which is why I dislike things like Flatpak.

Having distro maintainers involved in the process and installing your software from a free software distribution like Debian or FreeBSD is a much better distribution of power. The packages can be tuned to suit their environment without the developer having to repackage it for every distro, and the distro maintainers can keep out anti-features like telemetry and advertising.

The middleman may seem annoying to developers, but embrace the model and it'll work for you. Landing packages in your favorite distro isn't actually that hard, and the rest of the distros will follow. If you're an end-user who wants to see some software available for your distro, look into packaging and volunteer - it's easy.

the federated feed from linernotes is *so* much better than Nobody ever talks about how a small instance of like-minded people generates a fantastic curation of the verse. #mastometa
