I need to get out with my camera more!

Finally have a day to myself and struggling to keep busy. I keep going to open this bubble scrolling simulator called FB, but then remembering nothing good can really come from it and close it

BookWyrm is a new open federated alternative to Goodreads, and part of the Fediverse:

➡️ @bookwyrm

You can post about books you're reading, and interact with others on BookWyrm, Mastodon etc.

The platform is still a work in progress:

The flagship instance is at:

Development git is here:

Just last night I was saying to a friend "I'll probably drive this car until it croaks", expecting another 3-5 years... Well this morning it's running on 3 cylinders and not loving life 🙃

#intro #introduction #introductions post?

New instance on, may get nuked if I screw something up but here’s hoping not!

My interests are #Linux and #foss #opensource, #photography usually of the #motorsport kind, and a variety of other things I do to procrastinate about doing yet more things.

I may even post random amusing crap from my day. Who knows.
If it’s from work then it will be about how apparently useless the previous technician was to work on a machine. I fix forklifts for a living, which includes everything from engine rebuilds to hydraulics, to electrical and diagnosing CANbus faults. Exciting stuff. That was sarcasm for those that didn’t catch that.

I may post none of that anyway. It will be a surprise I guess. 🤷‍♂️

Second attempt at going outside. Success! He loved the sun and playing around in the grass


Just finished configuring a fresh xmpp server. Are there any fun friendly funny group chats out there?

@nick @idanoo I just like that I don’t have to worry about anyone exploiting my record player or it getting malware 😂

Day 4 of using on my Pixel 4a 5G. Very very happy - just got the April security patches too

Opting out of Google's WLAN geolocation mapping and network quality rating where they test your network and add it to a big database requires you to change your SSID to have a _nomap suffix.

Having to login to view articles on is the most annoying thing ever

Other than the amazing communities and open source aspect of Mastodon/Pixelfed/Peertube/etc.. I absolutely love scrolling with no ads or random paid content in-between posts

Just switched my Plex server off 🙌 While I was at it, cloned Jellyfin container and upgraded a second instance to the latest RC and sideloaded the debug APK so I can test side by side :D

Does anyone have some awesome channels I can follow? Still finding my way around it all!

Oh look at that, I removed AAAA records and everything is just working. Lovely.

As much as I want to support IPv6, I'm tempted to disable it on my servers for the time being, it's not fun when you have a spaghetti network and a reverse proxy and then half the stuff throws a fit with IPv6 enabled. Aaaaah

Don't know how to code but still want to contribute to open projects? Consider open street maps!

OSM is the community built map of the world. Anyone can edit the map and all the data is freely available and usable in any of your projects.

Start in your own neighborhood. Maybe your street is missing or named wrong. Update the corner shop hours. Map the parks or sidewalks. Anything helps and many hands make light work!
