its my birthday tomorrow.
going to go watch matrix, which makes me feel old, as I went to the cinema for all of them

my birthday wish is that you check out the album thats coming out in about 4 hours time, at midnight.
maybe support my work, but if not, please do share with others that may enjoy it.
the band is not & will not appear on Spotify, YouTube etc & doesnt chase the exposure pennies. so sharing helps a lot 🖤

#music #audio #album

Awesome light over Cardiff Bay wetlands on Wednesday 😊

new blog post: My proposal to do a book about FOSS/ethical alternative social media:

@christian_zerfass @robertwgehl And, in the case of Small Web, we do away with maintainers altogether so instead of many little fiefdoms, we have a network of people who own the means of communication and can autonomously and spontaneously create communities of equals…

@am It's honestly an effort nearly a decade in the making. Interop goes back all the way to the early days of Friendica reverse-engineering the Diaspora protocol and simultaneously using OStatus to talk to StatusNet. Making all the different projects federate has been an ongoing goal for many projects who realized that it would take far more than just their own platform to get the job done.

Luckily, Mastodon's success has led to an explosive adoption of ActivityPub, and we've mostly resolved the rough bits to the point that most platforms just work with each other, from the perspective of the user.

A picture from my walk this morning. Thought others may enjoy the view.


This blew our socks off - #PineNote 's e-paper display now works on mainline #linux ! 🎉

Thanks to Samuel Holland ( as well as other contributors for this incredible achievement.

Wanna print a slim weekly calendar for 2022 at home or local copy shop?
I made myself one once again and put the files into a public repository this time. Typeset with LaTeX. 14 sheets of paper A4.

Die deutsche Variante ist mit Feiertagen und einheitlichen Terminen wie Winter- und Sommerzeit. –

And I made ‘plain’ versions in English and Spanish (no holidays etc. added).


If you want to, you can move your Mastodon account to another instance.

Moving lets you take your followers, follows and settings with you.

1. Create a new account on the instance you want to move to, but do not delete the old account

2. Log into your NEW account, and go to Edit Profile > Moving From A Different Account, click on "create an account alias" and follow the instructions

3. Log into your OLD account, and go to Edit Profile > Move To A Different Account, click on "configure it here" and follow the instructions

4. On your OLD account, go to Preferences > Import and Export > Data Export and download the settings and follows lists

5. On your NEW account, go to Preferences > Import and Export > Import and upload the lists you just downloaded in the previous step

...your old account will now redirect to the new one, and your follows and followers will transfer automatically (there may be a short delay as this happens).

Surprised - and very happy - that my thought piece about the relevance of the Roman Empire to the value of the Welsh language was the seventh-most read article on Nation.Cymru in 2021 🥰🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿🇮🇹

@davidoclubb @zen3ger @LemmyDev absolutely love lemmy! We just need to drive more traffic away from reddit!

I've managed to get a few more DRM-free bookshop on to the list in 2021!

Take a look, and find your new favourite ebookshop.

A very unexpected and really nice touch from @bookwyrm 👏👏😍

It's this sort of thing that helps keep me engaged and excited by the platform!

Amazing progress for a small platform

(Yes, I'm translating to Welsh but probably after )
