I used to be a lot weirder. I'm a middle-aged geek, father to two boys, and I bang out code at #Google. I live near Boston now, but I grew up in central Mississippi.
I play a bunch of #music instruments, but none well enough to perform. I've been playing around with a DAW.
I started the cantos.social instance, trying to be a part of the small-scale Internet.
I try to be as kind as I can.
This looks interesting and self-descriptive: https://techjobsforgood.com/
This will probably be the first place I look next time I'm looking.
hey #fediverse, I'm looking to create a collection of social sustainable VPS providers
- green energy
- worker owned
- organic growth
- NO hyperscale
please send me more!
#OnyxBoox #Chess tip: if you are missing a chessboard, Lichess works great on the Boox with a little twiddling. The dark mode, its default, doesn't display correctly, but switching it to Light mode fixes the UI. After that, disable the animations. You can play online, against the app, or (my use) as an in-person board set between the players.
BookWyrm is a Fediverse alternative to GoodReads.
They've just opened their onboarding site at:
("Onboarding" is when you make it as easy as possible for people to join something.)
BookWyrm and its instances are currently still in beta testing, but you can join now if you want to try it out. Instances marked as "closed" mean you can join but you have to request an invitation.
I think @gargron is making a big mistake here by signaling his intent to phase out the local timeline : https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon-ios/issues/221
Besides debates about what "diverse" means, it's taking away a major incentive for people to start and maintain an instance.
Starting an instance to host a community is appealing to some people.
Starting an instance to do free IT for a distributed server farm of homogeneous instances seems like a hard sell.
I expected to get depressed after playing #NierReincarnation, but not about the state of the mobile gaming industry.
Any and all answers are greatly appreciated. No judgement whatsoever. Asking this for research on a WIP article:
Do you #selfhost ? If so:
- What do you host yourself?
- Do you use an existing toolchain (Ansible/Puppet scripts, Yunohost, etc)?
- Do you run it bare metal, virtualized or containerized? Which one?
Just typo'ed a servername while reconnecting to an IRC channel, and accidentally put in libera dot net instead of the correct dot chat, and you wouldn't believe where I found myself: Back on Freenode. Who've apparently secured that domain, and are using it to try to trick people back on to their services.
you find the config here: https://codeberg.org/davidak/nixos-config/src/branch/master/machines/atomic
i'm generally against self-hosting of e.g. e-mail or git and instead for community maintained services like @codeberg. it's not efficient when everyone does it themselves and not everyone is a professional sysadmin (i am tho). it's OK if you do it for fun, but consider contributing in a community effort
