It's very early days, and I have a lot of design work to do, but #Readlebee is on its way to becoming a reality!

If you'd like to #contribute to making this #Goodreads alternative as good as possible, check out the project on GitLab. Ideas and designs will help just as much as code:

Combien faut-il d’ampoules pour changer de chaussures?

Ça dépend de plusieurs facteurs. Combien coûtent de nouvelles chaussures, quel est le budget ? Quel niveau de douleur peut supporter - ou apprécier - la personne ? Peut-être que les chaussettes sont le vrai problème ?

Well Richard Stallman, founder of free software and the GNU project is going around defending MIT professors who participating the Epstein sex assault ring; from student protestors.

I think it's important when people, even leaders in your community do this sort of thing; that they are criticized.

Honestly, it pains me to say it, but free software has to be bigger than richard stallmen. Its time, probably past time for him to step down.

SLYR is a tool to convert data from binary formats to an open source format.
is still looking for sponsors to make it happen.
Wondering if the would be interested in partnering somehow? Sounds right up their alley. What do you think, @libreoffice ?

* N'ont pas besoin d'être "rentables" (ie. personne ne s'étonne que cela ne rapporte rien = dépenses, investissements):
- armée
- police
- aide aux entreprises (CICE, baisses de charges, etc.)
- frais du gouvernement, présidence, parlement, etc.
=> Ce qui consolide le pouvoir.

* Doivent être "rentables" (ie. sont déconstruites si elles coûtent plus qu'elles ne rapportent = "trou", déficit, dette)
- retraites
- santé
- éducation
=> Ce qui crèe du lien social, du bien-être, de la solidarité.

tired: using CDNs for your fediverse instance

wired: turning the fediverse into a global CDN itself

with @cwebber's datashards proposal, it's possible. we plan to implement datashards in Pleroma 2.0 to accomplish this.

You know something went wrong with humans when " Increase your excess to reduce your premium" is perceived to be an acceptable sentence by most.

rude; maybe humorous to you; surely someone’s done it before. 

The most techbro-y thing I’ve been exposed to is, at an + event, a white dude saying something like “I could probably code something that automatically draws buildings from aerial imagery to save everyone’s time, but I’m just too busy ey”. Like, (1) as if, and (2) just shush.

One of the big takeaways from me from apconf was how much I've unfairly discounted the Pleroma community (tbqh because @lain is such a massive shitposter that I don't know how to make sense of it probably). But meeting everyone IRL really made clear how thoughtful that community is, behind all the jokes. Lots of excitement there while discussing (not just w/ the Pleroma folks, but esp with them) about how to make things genuinely better for fediverse users. Thanks for the good chats, friends.

I'm working on a song that I'd like to publish soon. Until now I've just uploaded everything to Soundcloud, however I'd like to also try out Funkwhale.

I don't want to self-host an instance however.

Can someone recommend a good #Funkwhale instance?


Turns out I’m a fair bit materialistic. My partner got me lovely late birthday / father’s day presents, including a 4, which is going to become the new station, hopefully giving my controllers a second life along the way. I’ve got a couple of old low-spec netbooks that I keep repurposing, but running out of ideas. Thinking of trying on one of them. Any recommendation to make use of old, mildly dysfunctional lappies?
