LIVE NOW: Just a man, a piano, and the esoteric practice of pairing poetic words and phrases with a sequence of acoustic musical tones and rhythms since 2007. Every 🔁 boost 🔁 helps free the relationship between artist and listener from Big Tech!

@boilingsteam this may sound like a dumb question, but will RISC-V hardware be able to run regular Linux applications?

Alright, one last time for good luck :)
I've recently moved to Berlin for work, signed with an unreliable company that screwed me out of a flat (and possibly money) and am now moving from sublet to sublet, but need to find a permanent flat or WG with registration asap, preferably by November.

If you know anyone who knows anything, please let me know and signal boosts are appreciated!

@jeena maybe it might be a good idea to signup for their free trial to see it's usability before you put in too much work to get it going...just a thought

When people say they have nothing to hide, let's reply:

* Post your passwords here
* Write down everybody you hate
* Tell the world who you voted for
* List all the videos you watched

- Medical history.
- Sensitive conversations with employers, children, spouses.
- Billing and banking information.
- Purchase information.
- Web search history.
And more...

I need privacy. Not because my actions are questionable, but because 'your' judgement and intentions are.

And it doesn't matter whether or not my communications are weighty or frivolous in nature - they are mine and only for those whom I've chosen to share them with. Not the government's, nor goog's, nor my ISP's, but mine.

Also, what is legal where I live today, may not be legal tomorrow and my discussion of it may incriminate my future self. It has happened in the past many times to others in other places.

@jeena I don't have experience with it, but it's been on my radar for a long time. Not sure about sharing links without accounts, though. There are also a few mobile apps for it on fdroid as well.

@thenewoil yeah, I hope they are in fact doing that. It seems like most sites are playing ignorant. I don't doubt the majority are continuing the collection bonanza as usual:(

Dino 0.3 is released and supports video calls and conferences! 🥳

You can call a friend or a group of people. Calls are e2e-encrypted, peer-to-peer and compatible with other XMPP applications.

Release blog post: dino.im/blog/2022/02/dino-0.3-

@thenewoil I didn't think of it that way, I use both, but I assume in this case Ublock is the only one that's necessary?

If you have an indepdently hosted WordPress blog, you can turn it into a Fediverse server using a special plug-in. This means that people on Mastodon etc. can follow your blog and interact with it.

You can install it on your blog by logging into the WordPress dashboard, go to Plugins > Add New, then search for "ActivityPub". The plug-in you want is called "ActivityPub" and is by Matias Pfefferle.

You can also see more info about it at wordpress.org/plugins/activity and the author is on the Fediverse at @pfefferle

Once it's installed, you can find the blog's Fediverse address in your WordPress dashboard's Users section, it's listed at the bottom of the user's profile options. You can copy and paste this address into the search box on Mastodon etc to interact with that user's blog.

You'll also see an ActivityPub section in the Settings menu.

Note : This plug-in only works on independently hosted WordPress-powered blogs. It doesn't work on Wordpress.com free blogs.

Any project or reference to recommend for charging stations for homes?

Let me explain. I’m tired of seeing these chargers for smartphones and other tablets plugged all over the apartment. I think if we had one main location to charge our devices it would look tidier and also be less "in your face". Anyone has any nice looking setups here to recommend or any strategies you have experimented with?

Thx #askFedi #askFediverse

@benjancewicz that's a great point, this way you need to actually do the work, and start from the "mail room" as they used to say.

Not only does this prove your dedication, but also gives you a better understanding of the entire system you're eventually tasked with administering.

@sheogorath @aral @ben great series, I'm seriously considering one of these as well

@gabek we just picked up a gotrax xr elite, which is reasonably priced, well made and based out of Texas, so support should not be an issue. It has 25-30 km range as well:)
