Tonight I'm going on a bit of a nostalgia trip over at twitch.tv/sirsamsai/ in about 15 minutes. There's a game I haven't touched in years, but it's also a game that started my content creation hobby, so I think it's due for a revisit. See you in the chat!

@hunger @Linux Hi! Pouhiou, here. Early august I've browsed over +100 instances, and added those I thought had nice original content to Framatube's federation bubble: framatube.org .
Oh, and just today, I've found out about tilvids.com that seems nice (but I need to dig in).
We'll also try to update joinpeertube.org selection in September (I wish and want and hope: time is so scarce!)
