NFTs are about money, not art. They do not serve the best interests of artists, and it's increasingly common to hear of artists who've had their art stolen by NFT sites. If you're thinking of getting into NFTs, *please* research thoroughly to avoid getting scammed.

:boost_requested: looking for instance recommendations for a fediverse newbie 

A friend of mine is looking into joining the Fediverse, and I'm trying to find something that he will enjoy.

Interests: Tabletop RPGs, writing (with a focus on sharing and exchanging feedback), videogames and paganism-druidry

I'm looking for something with solid moderation and an active and kind local timeline; I'm just a bit out of the loop on what's active nowadays 😅

Boosts and replies appreciated :boost_ok:

I'm waiting to see a p2p message protocol+client with the same features that mainstream messaging protocols+clients (Telegram, Facebook Messenger...) have.

Smartphone companies should focus more on creating compact, hand-sized devices. Mine has a screen of 5.5", which makes it really uncomfortable to type.

Trying to find a CLI tool that sends messages to a xmpp muc, not specifying an username to it. This is so tricky…

lb: I don't want to install an app to use my keyboard.

No, I don't want to install an app to use these earbuds.

No, I don't want to install an app to activate my cable modem.

No, I don't want to install an app to powerup my dishwasher

No, I don't want to install an app to control my heating and lights.

Why are we taking away the interfaces that directly control these things? Apps can be helpful as an alternative interface and even increase accessibility, but when they are the only option it has the opposite effect.

Manyverse isn't part of the Fediverse, because it works very differently. It's part of the SSB (aka Scuttlebutt) network, and is trying to make SSB more user friendly.

However, the aim of Manyverse/SSB is very similar to the Fediverse: to decentralise social media. You may want to try it out!

Manyverse have just released their first desktop apps, so Manyverse is now available for all major platforms (Linux, Mac, Windows, Android, iOS). You can find out more and download the apps at:

manyver.se

They also have a Fediverse account at @manyver_se

I've previously posted that Manyverse is serverless, but this isn't quite true. It can be very difficult to reliably connect internet users peer-to-peer, so Manyverse uses special servers called "Rooms" to connect users. However, actual user data is not stored online, so data storage is still serverless. There's a video explaining Room servers at youtube.com/watch?v=W5p0y_MWwD

🤟 

It is impressive how Denis Stoff mix up old, not-released lyrics to make new songs.

I've seen connections between lyrics of Down and Dirty - Hate (Demo) and Asking Alexandria - Sometimes It Ends.
There's melodic connections between DnD - Hate (demo), DnD - Move It, AA - Let It Sleep, AA - Sometimes It Ends.

I've updated my zsh prompt! (Also, I'm developing a script to print some ascii arts.)

I don't like to use services like Protonmail, Signal and Brave, the are kinda sussy ngl. I rather use stuff I trust more like Matrix, XMPP or self-host email

Today my vertical ergonomic mouse has arrived!
