I will try to move my account on mastodon.technology, which means that all my followers should be transferred there... Hope that it works.

Also my account needs to be approved by the admins of mastodon.technology first. Kind of more complicated than I expected, to be honest.

So what happened is exactly what I feared what would happen... It's the last day of february and I'm still on niu.moe. Time to move on...

hey fedizens (and especially niusers)! i built something!

it's a tool that can open a mastodon export archive and show you all of your toots and favorites (if they're available). it's still not perfect and needs substantial improvements, but i decided to publish it now, as niusers were asking questions about how to view export.


also i'll post updates at @meowViewer (report bugs there if you encounter them!). please boost! :boost_ok:

Hey people o/
I am currently thinking about renting a VPS in order to mainly store some file (via OwnCloud or similar app) + some P2P
I haven't used VPS since more than 5 years so I am not aware of what is available on the market. Is OVH still good for VPS or do you recommend any other?

Anybody have recommendations on how to find remote programming jobs? I live in the Midwest and was wondering if it would perhaps pay more for me to do this?

Currently my salary is a little under 57k a year, as a junior dev, my companies insurance plan is like 11k a year in premiums and overall isn't that good /:

I'm really late this year, but anyways... Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!

hello everynyan!!

for two years i've been developing a project known as MegaGRRL. it's a portable sega genesis music player that uses the original sound chips, and plays VGM files from an SD card.

the portable version is still in development, but recently i designed a simplified, desktop version of the player, and i'm happy to announce that the schematic, PCB, firmware, and 3d print design files for MegaGRRL Desktop are now available for anyone to build.

if you're an FM synth nerd or just a fan of chiptunes, check it out!

[BREAKING] Leaked Facebook emails reveal "number one threat" to its platform: decentralized platforms.

I'm very sad to know that niu.moe will be eventually closed down in a couple of months. That was pretty much a perfect instance for becoming familiar with Fedi and going forward. I also really, really enjoyed people around here.

Hopefully I won't lose any account I started following.

This is a really interesting article about trends among Silicon Valley techie people: lareviewofbooks.org/article/th

It also made me aware about its author's book called "The Charisma Machine: The Life, Death, and Legacy of One Laptop per Child": morganya.org/charisma.html

Sounds like a really interesting book and I'll try to buy it when it comes out. I was really fascinated about OLPC when I heard about it for the first time, and apparently for all the wrong reasons. I also recall that it looked at times like the people most excited about it (and many of its actual buyers) were young, but adult, programmers and people like that.

Some fucking patent troll is suing @gnome, and they are fighting back, to help all of Free software, who might be victims if the troll wins.

I've gotten so much from Gnome trough so many years, and given so little back. But here it is easy to give, so I did, and I tried to make up a little bit for all I've gotten.

And you should too!

Please boost, they are fighting for all of us, at least we can spread the word

A very nice articles about the early BBS's and their culture: paleotronic.com/2019/09/04/bbs

Feels like it was a great time. I also feel that nowadays Mastodon and other decentralized social networks, as well as what remains of old-school forums still fulfill the BBS's role to some extent.

It seems like if you try to send a tooth in Fedilab and there's no network connection, the tooth just disappears... That's pretty bad.

What OS camp are you in? Hopefully this will be big so please boost so we can get as many votes as possible

The temperature suddenly decreased this weekend... Just a couple of weeks ago it was like a really hot summer, but now it feels so cold I'm afraid I'll have to turn the heaters on this night.

And that's just some pretty rock with a bunch of trees on it.

This is just a photo of a cloud (you can see it in one of the previous photos) after applying a color correction filter in Gimp. I was surprised a bit at the result.
