If anybody wants to cut cost on self-hosting I strongly suggest frp

How it works (in short)
1) Set a home server locally (no public IP needed).
2) Get a cheap VPS (which will be your proxy to the world).
3) Set frp (client/server) on local server and VPS.

Can we please stop proclaiming the end of the fediverse! Just because someone with ideas you don't agree with is joining the fediverse does not mean that the fediverse is over. It means its getting popular! If there's any danger to the fediverse, its the threat of censorship by oligarchs. Who want to silence the opinions they disagree with.

Why don't #Fediverse instances share their media files using #IPFS especially the large ones like videos?

The greatest notabug features:

- w3m can't autoplay, show popups, or run Javascript.

- IRC doesn't handle emoji.

- Mastodon can't integrate with Birdsite.

- No default Linux desktop.

- No Adobe anything anywhere.

Was looking at different Window managers and 2bwm caught my eye, but i can't find much info about it.
Anyone know any guides, blogs, setups or other writing about it?

bet he will make a killing on adsense.

P.S can somebody send me a pdf of the post when it's up? thanks

IPFS is an open source way to host files and share them around the web. As demand increases so does the speed of retrieving the content.

Went to check if you can even use these "chapters" in

turns out it just reads the timestamps in the description
and with --add-metadata --prefer-mpeg it will work.

So to summarise:
if you are doing podcasts on youtube please put timestamps in the description

Came to think of something from a discussion that really annoys me about podcasts.

If you are semi-listening to one and they mention something nice about something or otherwise which gets your attention mid segment.

At that point will never mention the name of it ever during that segment, and like most people on youtube (this case) never do chapters. 😡

Support standards, best practices, and interoperability. Reject monolithic systems. Embrace decentralisation.

note to all people that just joined fedi because of the tumblr shitfest:

y'all probably joined a large instance because those are the most accessible, but keep watch for the smaller instances around you, they have a stronger sense of community and you can make a meaningful impact on it!

don't be afraid to make accounts on multiple instances!
