Pinned toot

I am done capitalizing i in the middle of sentences. If it's at the beginning i will. Otherwise it's a waste of a keystroke...

My first official toot.

I come to Mastodon as an escape from facebook. I will try to cut it out 100%. Maybe some friends will follow. I'll post all sorts of things some personal some tech/linux related.

Been a linux user for about 15 years left windows behind.(as much as possible)

I run Arch currently but have used Gentoo,Funtoo,Ubuntu and others.

Don't hesitate to ask questions. I know little on the programing side but am trying to learn some of that as well.

Thanks for reading.

If anyone reading this is looking for an alternative RSS feed reader/service at no cost I am willing to setup some of you on my tt-rss instance. The VPS I have should be able to handle a decent number of users.

Also I would be willing to give a few of you some space on my Nextcloud instance as well. Like 10 or so users 10gb each.

I realize not everyone can afford to self host or wants to for that matter so I'm offering what I can. Just send me a PM here and we'll settle things.

Always amazed by all the services which are out there. So many alternatives to reddit, Twitter, Facebook, Google+. There all seem to be more enjoyable. It is like rediscovering the web again with decentralization.

Salut les Mammouths,
Je relance l'annonce pour un programmeur en #Rust (ou autre, merci de détailler) pour un temps plein de 2 à 3 mois en télétravail :
- réalisation d'une appli de sondages en P2P
Grosso modo, lancer un concurrent libre et décentralisé par rapport aux instituts de sondages traditionnels (dès les élections de mars 2021).

Le projet une fois terminé ira à la communauté.

Re-pouets appréciés 😉 merci

Unfortunately, someone from Russia (Alexey Knyazev) is selling my art as wooden puzzles. First, he sold my Wakeful Wolf without my consent.

I told him to stop selling my art and reported this illegal product everywhere I could. Today I saw that he started selling two other artworks of mine as a puzzle under a different company name.

Please don't purchase any puzzles from "woddopuzzles". or "Alexey Art".

My #Peertube instance is acting odd...Instances i've been federating with for months all of a sudden i'm not getting(All) videos from... Like just from the last 3-5 days i'm missing some videos... For examples

My instance

VS Original instance

But then this one


So i'm not sure what's up...I'm going to try and upgrade to V2.3.0 see if that fixes it somehow...

Is there anyway i can force my instance to do like a full refresh of content from another instance.

By the way, the other day I received a notification from Mozilla that the email address I used to create my WattsApp account was the spoils of war from a recent hack. I never use the app, so I just ended up deleting my account. (I use a password generator and never duplicate passwords between accounts.)

Anyone not aware of the hack or hasn't been notified by any service that this has happened?

Users need to remember that gratis use of non-datafarming online services is a gift, not a right. If we don't have the skills / resources to self-host, we depend on others who do, and we need to be actively looking for ways to give back. That might include things like donations towards hosting costs, or reporting of outages and other problems in a friendly, non-demanding way. Even just an occasional 'thanks for this awesome service, we love you' message is a good start.
