With the imminent release of federation for @pixelfed , a reminder that there are many photo sites on the way for the #Fediverse:

@anfora

@peerpx

@snap_as

As they will federate together, it means many platforms can co-exist without worrying about splintering the userbase.

When a decentralised site grows, it makes the others stronger too, because they all benefit from the same network effect.

Centralised sites just weaken each other until one monopoly site dominates.

nobody told me “keepin it real” would be such a grave obligation

heyyy uh

ESR took a cool counterculture and got his shitty right-wing UNIX ideology all over it—he's not just a bad person, he's a exceptionally bad historian and you shouldn't take his word for anything, the jargon file that he "curates" reflects nothing like an actual 70s/80s programming culture.

here's a pre-ESR jargon file for reference: dourish.com/goodies/jargon.htm

If #Bitcoin were to cease trading tomorrow, 0.5% of the world’s electricity demand would simply disappear – which would cover one year’s worth of the carbon emission cuts required to limit temperature rises this century to 2C. sluggerotoole.com/2018/10/12/b

Sandstorm.io is pretty great for running a personal server. That said, i just setup a new server with NextCloud using snapd, and it was incredibly easy. It took over port 80 and 443 all by itself, which precludes the multi-tenancy of Sandstorm, but it was one command and running. Good first experience with snaps, and on Debian 9, not Ubuntu!

just got some pretty solid evidence of data loss on android storage. Photos fail to load after being downloaded from the device some time later (one year max test case), but loading just fine from the copy nextcloud uploaded to my server.

Just had a request for open source alternatives to Google's #Recaptcha.

Any suggestions?
