Please remember that #Git is by nature distributed. So when migrating from (for example) #GitHub to (for example) #GitLab please, please, please do NOT create a brand new repository and git add the files, or the entire commit history will be lost. Instead, just push the existing repository to your new hosting service.
Thanks for the kind words!
I just want to point out that I am part of the Librehosters (https://libreho.st/) 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 :)
@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.

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?
I've tried to restrict myself from accessing endless scrolls. Mastodon is my single exception. Everything else that I use is only upon intention. In other words, I only read/watch things that I decided to go look up.
I noticed when I switched to Newpipe that it lacked the "features" of letting you log in and have recommendations, autoplaying the next video, and reading comments (note that the last two are now optional). This led to a more enjoyable experience that I now seek everywhere.
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.
http://gettogether.community 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. 😔
@rgggn I did this about a year ago and I can assure you that it really helps.
Also check my other accounts (see choices).
