Just curious, how can I learn front end dev fast? I got a website project to volunteer for.

The Blender #peertube instance has been updated to the latest version which now means it federates again, yeah!!



THIS IS THE SMALLEST THING WE CAN DO to show them that they should support alternatives!

There's been a much more activity in the comments, and follows. YOU'RE AWESOME!

Promote it, boost the videos so others know it exists, and let them know on official channels (blender.today, blenderartists.org etc.) that it's a great idea.


A #mastodon exclusive! You are invited to play on a *REAL* PDP-8/e running the TSS/8 monitor (TimeSharing System 8) pictured here. There is a user contributed tutorial here:


To connect, ssh tss8@tty.livingcomputers.org

If you are unable to connect that means all 6 (yes, just 6) lines are in use. Remember, this is real hardware and there is NO EMULATION happening. It is the real deal! Enjoy!

Quick :

- First use of computer tech in HS ('74)

- 1st PC ('87)

- Self-taught -- no vocational schools nearby back then

- Opened computer shop in '94

- GNU/Linux O/S of choice in '99, Windows free (dropped *all* support) for clients with advent of Win 10

- Retired earlier this year

- MX Linux is my distro of choice, but I have installed and run just about all of the pop distros over the years

- Trying to maintain learning & retention, as I gradually lose brain cells to geriatrics

There's a petition to Save the .org top level domain. Apparently, ICANN could still stop it from being sold.
I know, petitions rarely work, but I also know that _sometimes_ they do.
Please consider signing if you _run_ anything there, or if you _use_ or _care about_ anything that's on a .org domain. Also, boosting this to others who follow you, would be very much appreciated.

I wonder if wikipedias social network platform has AcitivityPub support...

+ I'm old enough to remember the Web of the 1990s/ 2000s.
It was a maze. You followed hypertext links, stumbled into forums and early troll-caves, used Slashdot and GoTo, experimented with LiveJournal and Blogger.

It wasn't safe, it was filled with weirdness, appealed heavily to geeks and loners. Being on the web in that era was a serious trip.

But it wasn't corporate. It wasn't the tool of major governments, yet. It was defiantly decentralised, and when you were online...

... you felt free.

Just curious, where can I find resources to make a suggestion / question-answering chatbot? I am getting curious to make one that answers accordingly to my tastes.

Just reading it out loud, I love open source and the Fediverse as far as I have gotten to understand it.

I would simply like that development environment like Linux, FreeBSD or Inferno OS to be easier to implement on my dream 12 bit architecture. It isn’t ready but I do have plans.

I am a autistic trans person in Canada, i like to surf posts and casually research topics online between many other special interests of mine. And I produce subliminal affirmation videos on YouTube. Yeah, I am that creative.

btw, I am really curious about Inferno OS and I am trying Linux Mint on my main VM. Still figuring out how to install compatibility layers for Windows 10 so I can repartition my desktop home PC when I will upgrade it.
