Readers, use the library instead of returning purchased books at Amazon. There are libraries in the US where you can buy a non resident digital library card, even outside the US. Libraries have Kindle books, eBooks, and audiobooks. dailydot.com/unclick/amazon-ki #AmazonIsNotALibrary

The Halifax Explosion was the largest man made explosion in recorded history up until that point. Explosives were measured in “Halifaxes” afterward. The first atomic explosion was 10 Halifaxes.

Nos services #Peertube et #Vaultwarden ont été mis à jour aujourd’hui :blobcheer:

Nous profitons de ces mises à jour pour féliciter les organisations, entreprises (Vaultwarden est une réécriture partielle de Bitwarden) et individus derrières ces logiciels libres pour le travail 👏

Peertube notamment a évolué tellement en quelques années, tout en gardant une simplicité d’utilisation, on apprécie énormément cette alternative à Youtube :blobmeltsoblove:

D’ailleurs, n’hésitez pas à soutenir Framasoft !

"Already, 5,000 Londoners are on to it: borrowing anything from sound systems to sewing machines from a catalogue of around 50 items. They are the pioneers of the Library of Things (LoT) model, which helps people to save money and reduce waste by affordably renting out household items. They’ve collectively saved around 50 tonnes of waste from landfill since it all began."

Question, please boost: I am looking for accounts to follow which focus on African affairs from an African perspective, whether personal accounts by journalist, activists etc., or news portals, independent news outlets as well as sciency ones, political science ones, think tanks etc.

Germany's new government put in on paper: Everyone has a right to encryption! Now the German government has asked the EU Commission difficult questions on the planned EU surveillance law. Will Germany fight for our right to privacy?

New blog post on the upcoming #bonfire beta release: bonfirenetworks.org/posts/beta

"In a few days' time we'd like to invite you to experiment with a 'playground' instance of Bonfire, the federated social networking toolkit for communities. Lots of what you'll see in the Bonfire beta will be recognisable from other social and/or federated apps. There is some functionality that may be a little different with Bonfire as well."

Something a bit different today...

There's a really nice Fediverse admin on here called @stux who provides lots of free decentralised public services (public instances of Mastodon, PeerTube, Pixelfed, Matrix, Nitter, Invidious, Searx etc).

Stux is spending hundreds of euros a month so that these services remain free and operational.

Apparently Stux has had a tough time finding work recently, but has their own small business which provides web hosting.

If you're looking for a small indie hosting provider, this might be a really good choice as the money raised will help keep the Fedi going too:

➡️ stuxhost.com

(I'm sorry to embarass you Stux, but I think you deserve a shout-out for the good work you do!)

Just a reminder, UK folks: I run a wiki about places to pass on things that you no longer need. It's called Pass It On.

I'm always looking for SPECIFIC, GENUINE and RECENT examples of charities/other orgs that will take things that might otherwise go to landfill.

Please, no hearsay or vague recommendations. But if YOU PERSONALLY have got a charity to take something IN THE RECENT PAST, I am desperate to hear about it.
