I think Linux users are severely underestimating the fact that AppImages are portable.

hunter is a fast and lag-free file browser/manager for the terminal written in Rust. It features a heavily asychronous and multi-threaded design and all disk IO happens off the main thread in a non-blocking fashion, so that hunter will always stay responsive. github.com/rabite0/hunter #Rust

I think this is going to sound weird but does anyone else get that sensation when you look at something in the night sky and focus on the depth perception and realize on a fundamental level that you're looking at something really really far and really really big

imagine the consequences of the #fediverse being hit by #Article13 and alike because of disobidience as one of the first:

- hudge media attention
- actions of solidarity with those that are targeted
- a community that is collectivly targeted by the state, with popular support by others to resist it
- collectivly developing strategies to counter article 13 and a like
- collectivly using our creativity against a common threat

I'm not an admin, so I'm for now shure in a different positions, but somehow it sounds as it could have a positive impact on the #fediverse. Hope I'm not to naiv on that?

(also keep calm: it must be established as national laws, that will take some time anyways)

Friends I've done it. Mastodex is now up! If you don't know what it is, Mastodex is a public listing of Mastodon users in which they are tied to a specific Pokรฉmon of their choosing.

It's in early stages, I'm happy for others to play with it and for people to contribute if they want. It's licensed under the zlib license.

Some features:
- Translations for 4 languages (English, German, Italian, French)
- Clear way to claim your own Pokรฉmon
- Responsive layout
- MissingNo

Notice the trend. Never trust companies to maintain your work/music/photography. They only do this as long as it's profitable (to them). No 'service', no 'charity'.

#Myspace lost all the music its users uploaded between 2003 and 2015:

"Someday, this will happen to #Facebook, #Instagram, #Tumblr, etc. Don't trust the platforms to #archive your data."

Exactly! I'll remember you when you're down because #YouTube is lost.
