Pinned toot

Hi there! I'm moving here from @silmathoron that I'll keep as an alt, mostly (tbh) because server issues have been ongoing for months, but also because I think a smaller instance that is closer to my interests might be better.
(I was new to the fediverse when i chose mcloud as my instance so that was not the most educated choice).

I'm , interested in (surprise!) and socio-environmental challenges, but also in culture and language.


According to the #PinePhone chat, Axolotl (the #Signal client) for #UbuntuTouch, is going to add a switch so it can run in qmlscene on @mobian (and likely all the other distributions) without the #UbuntuTouch system integrations.

#Geology’s #human footprint is enough to spur rage

Right now, worldwide, there are more than 500,000 active quarries and pits, employing 4 million people, excavating the #sand and #gravel needed for new roads, new homes and new megacities.
In 1904, beyond the cities, the US had just 225 km of sealed highway. Now it has 4.3m km of #asphalt or #concrete roadway, consuming more than 20 billion tonnes of sand and gravel.


Hi #BSD and general #Unix people. I have a poll for you.

If CDBUG returned as a monthly online thing until we can return to a pre-COVID normalcy, would you attend? No need to be in the NY Capital District to attend!

Would you also be interested in giving a talk?

Please boost to your other BSD/Unix/#Linux friends.

Announcing Hello World! is a new instance aimed at #Python developers of all experience levels. It runs on Pleroma which is similar to (and compatible with) Mastodon - you can use Mastodon smartphone clients with it, and you can enable a Mastodon lookalike interface on the web if you want.

Come join us - let’s build a community together and enjoy a local timeline filled with #Python discussions.

Be nice. No hate speech.
The official language is English for public messages.
While we encourage discussion topics directly related to #Python, other topics are okay too.

Boosts / Repeats appreciated! Let’s try to reach as many #Python developers as we can.

Thanks to @debian 's €10,000 donation (and not $10,000 as announced a few hours ago), we've just reached the 4th step of our PeerTube fundraising. Many thanks to all those who donated. And it's not too late to contribute :

Welp. It's done. In a matter of hours, #PeerTube received over €13,000 and exceeded their goal.

After a few user complaints and a discussion between the admins, it has been agreed that the main #Trunk instance should be aimed towards speakers of English. This does not mean that other languages aren't allowed at all; far from it! But all people in the database should at least sometimes post in English about the topics they have selected.
So, here is yet another reminder that, if you are capable of doing so, it'd be lovely to have more little Trunks around. There is a Spanish one at least, though I haven't checked its activity. There's definitely enough Germans on the Fedi to fill several lists, so perhaps that? And there's definitely been interest in an Italian one.
If you own a server and would be able to host and moderate such a thing, please contact @kensanata

Thanks to @debian for their $10,000 contribution to the #roadmap to #PeerTube v3! <3 <3 <3

With this great recognition from the Debian Project, the €60,000 to fund live in PeerTube are almost reached. To contribute:

We've done quite some interviews, but would really like to know from the fediverse too:

What's currently your most important motivation for using LinkedIn, Xing, Indeed, etc:

Made some végé pâté for the first time on the boat, without an oven, and it was HEAVENLY.

This is the normal recipe:

For the stovetop version, I put all the ingredients in an oiled cast iron pan, cooked it for 5 min med heat with the top on, than flipped it, cooked the other side (same time), and THEN went to bury it in a bin with blankets & cushions, and let it slow cook for 4 hours.

Pan was still hot when I opened it. Fan-tas-tic!


The allwinner kernel (#pinephone, #pinetab) was updated to megi's 5.9.1 tree in #postmarketOS edge. Lots of great improvements, including the long-awaited HDMI fix, improved call quality (thx smaeul!), and no 30s wait for modem on shutdown. @PINE64

Tom Lehrer has released his songs and lyrics into the public domain.

What a nice thing to do.

This is magic, I'm astonished ...

#Browsh a fully-modern text-based browser. It renders anything that a modern browser can; #HTML5 , #CSS3 , #JS, video and even #WebGL .

Wouldn't use it in a daily basis though, at least not over more traditional options like w3m and lynx but still, it's a technical achievement I can't recommend more

It seems the climate denial criminals have started a campaign to lower the IMDB rating of the new Greta Thunberg documentary 'I Am Greta'.

So you know all what do do! ✅ I already started the campaign, although I didn't watch it yet. But I bet those bastards didn't see it either. 😉
