There was a torrent that was at 0% in my client for over three years, and as far as I could find the file didn't exist anywhere else on the internet (including some invite-only FTP sites…) other than this single torrent. But somehow, earlier this year a single person appeared out of the blue and seeded the torrent until I was at 100%, then disappeared again almost immediately after.

Naturally I've been diligently seeing said torrent since. Still completely mystified as to why and how it happened…

Fedi is the most strange thing in the world.

On normal social media, you write a message and people just ignore it forever.

Here, you write a message, it stays ignored for 1 or 2 years, and then all of a sudden, for no reason, with no explanation, someone finds it somehow, boosts it, and it gets 200 likes and 120 boosts.

What the fuck.

I'm sure someone will boost this message in 2021 or 2022.

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:

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

This is how my chilli plant is doing. I've moved it outside now that the weather is warmer.

Hey! Maybe someone can help me. I'm trying to find an accessible Gemini client for Windows that supports client certificates. Most of the ones I've tried do not, or are broken, or are not accessible. #Gemini
