Three months ago I joined this instance but forgot a proper #introduction with hashtags and all that fancy stuff, so here it goes:
I am a computational linguist passionate about #linux and #emacs. I like #foss in research and often talk too much about the importance of os and #openData in academia and education.
I like #minetest l4d2, terraria and honestly too many games.
I study #AI and like to talk about sensible implementations of it and its future, also very into #linguistics
Lol this always make me laugh #southpark
Reddit's Linux post for the day:
"Switching To Linux Has Made Gaming.. More Fun?"
"Am I the only one who has found PC gaming is actually more fun on Linux?
Why would games be any more or less fun to play on a different OS?
Last year while I was still on Windows, feeling bored of gaming and had a total lack of interest in the games available. I wasn't seeing much that looked appealing to me."
There's an alternative to Reddit on the Fediverse, it's called Prismo.
The first instance is here, and is open for sign-ups:
The project's Mastodon account is here:
Federation is still being worked on, but you can already follow Prismo users and comment on their posts from elsewhere on the Fediverse.
For example, here's the lead developer's Prismo account:
In the last few months:
- Tumblr purged adult content (and a bunch of stuff it misindentified).
- Flickr purged free storage above a limit of 1000 photos/account.
- Myspace deleted 12 years' worth of music.
And Google+ only has two weeks left before Google pulls its plug.

Put the channel's username in this address:
You can then add this RSS address to your feed reader app.
For example, OnePotChefShow's RSS feed is:
You can also make RSS feeds from channel IDs (strings of letters and numbers):
