When I'm scrolling through my feed and I find a toot from you with an image that is not described, what would you like me to do:

Wow, there are character limits on pole options? That sucks.

Mars is quite small. Bit rubbish really. Stupid planet.

There's a lot of stuff in the universe quite big and stuff.

What is your main method of browsing gemini?

I got an offer to get 500 pounds to do 2 seminar sessions BUT they are co-sponsored by Elsevier (and a university).

BUT I fucking hate Elsevier and getting $$ from them would in no way hinder me from publicly expressing that.

But I am pretty torn about what to do. What do y'all think?

The invite said:
> Would you be able and willing to present a lecture which focuses, more specifically on which actions can researchers take to make their research more reproducible?

I updated 29 gemini texts of my blog to add alternative text in pre-formatted block.

This looks like this

```shell commands adding an user
sudo -i
adduser -m someuser

It works like Content Warning on Mastodon, some users using braille display or Text-To-Speech clients may not want to waste time on a log file or an ASCII art.

It is important to think about them. Gemini is a great opportunity for a better accessibility and we shouldn't waste it.

I want to create a Gemini Capsule specifically designed to be for people doing research - for school or college etc.

I’m thinking about polishing up the idea and then setting it up on sourcehut pages, which I think might allow people to submit pull requests and add to the project maybe? I really need to research the project.


Start your gemini blog today.

The following sites offer free gemini hosting: (dedicated subdomain( e.g.; publishing is done thru a web browser)
gemini:// (only free until service enters beta stage)
users get a subdomain with their username and can publish static web and gemini pages.

Fediverse, what's your favourite #gemini server?

I'm kinda testing the waters with this now and I'm really liking it.

Currently I'm testing locally with jetforce as it was the easiest to install.

BTW if you have info docs tutorials on
a) how to export to HTML in order to run a WWW replica?
b) how to best set up a public server?
c) what hosting service is your fav?
d) anything else you might deem useful to a newcomer
it's most appreciated.

Boosts welcome.

Instance admin just lost their job, might need help is one of the largest and nicest instances on the Fediverse, run by an enthusiastic admin called @stux

Unfortunately Stux has today found out that they are fired from their day job 😞

However, by happy coincidence, Stux had just set up a hosting company. If you need web hosting, domain names etc please consider using Stuxhost so that Stux can continue working:

I really like the concept behind #tinylog for #gemini, thinking of setting up one at some point (makes me think of federation over gemini)…
Any list somewhere of tinylogs ?

Does anybody know of a good #PeerTube app for #iOS? #NewPipe gets lots of love on the Android side, but I've heard nothing about iOS. Bonus points if it's #accessible.
