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 ๐Ÿ–ค

@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 equalsโ€ฆ

@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.



"Free software" confuses the hell out of people because it's taken to mean gratis.

"Open source" focuses only on source and can still be big corpo, closed development, community excluding.

So what about just "open software"?

Software where everything is open, not just the source but also the development and the community.

Says nothing one way or another about price, focuses on multi faceted openness.

I did it! Finally made a full video showing how I make isometric mini worlds in #Krita out of Creative Commons photos and images.

This world has a Japanese tea garden theme, and I ran the screen recorder while I made it, then added commentary of the process.

I'm looking for feedback on which techniques used people would most like dedicated step by step tutorials on, so please share your thoughts.

This blew our socks off - #PineNote 's e-paper display now works on mainline #linux ! ๐ŸŽ‰

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

Castopod is a free open self-hostable podcasting platform with Fediverse support. You can follow at:

The project website is at

Support for ActivityPub means users of Mastodon etc can follow and interact with Castopod users.

Castopod is still in Alpha testing, you can follow its progress at

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. โ€“

And I made โ€˜plainโ€™ 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).
