What percentage of mastodon users do you think run Linux as their main operating system?

Hi Fediverse 馃憢

it's @tobias here, broadcasting via this new fediverse account representing (formerly) #switchingsocial 馃帀

Please follow, dm and @ this account for everything related to the English version ... as @swisode wants to write German posts again 馃榿

It's been one week since the #shutdown. There hasn't been any news from the original author yet. So, I believe, it's on us to keep this project alive.

Please stay tuned as I'll ask for support here - after some more preparations. 馃捇

Hi Fediverse

it seems to me that closed down it's services. All social media accounts are deleted and the site is currently offline.

Unfortunately, I have no clue what happened, I'm as surprised as you are. I already contacted the French, Italian and Turkish version of the site.

In case someone knows anything about what happened or has backups of one/multiple pages of the website, I would be very happy to get in touch with you.

Wait, Mastodon supports audio only posts now, right? And you can also subscribe to a Mastodon account through RSS, right? 馃檪 Would that be a valid podcast you could add to a podcast client? 馃馃槉

Hi, everyone! :blobartist:

We're looking for audio-visual artists who want their stuff displayed online.

Anything from animation shorts to music videos as long as it's yours and/or CC.

The idea is to build up a sort of community 'TV' (stream), for fedi peeps to watch and have fun! :blobaww:

Hey, everyone! :blobbandage:

I'm going through a lot right now and I've been postponing this post with hope that things would settle positively, but I need to ask for financial help, here.

I don't have the spoons to explain the situation fully.

So... In short, for at least the next 3 months getting groceries and paying for meds and physio will be a struggle, as someone in the family is getting sacked while in debt.

It's fucked up and my anxiety levels are skyrocketing, which isn't good also because stress is one of my MS triggers. :_catsad:

If you can help in any way, our PayPal is:

Boosts welcome & thank you! :blobblush:

Hey, listen.

I've been unemployed for the last few months, recovering from intense burnout. I'm in the process of looking for jobs, but realistically, I'm very close to being broke.

I'm trying my best to live lean and come up with some kind of income...but to be honest, I need help. I've got only 400 bucks to my name right now, and bills are going to cause major damage.

I'm trying to work my way up to $1210 to cover rent after the next month. While I don't at all expect that kind of money to just be handed to me, I'm not confident that I'm going to be able to get a job in time to cover it.

My biggest costs right now are servers. I'm running We Distribute and VidCommons entirely out of pocket with no donations. This probably is why neither have been updated very frequently in recent months, but if they're to continue operation, I need at least 80 bucks to cover it. If I can't, both of those projects will be on ice for a while, with their sites taken down.

If anyone would like to help me financially during this trying time, here's some links for donations. I hate having to do this, but I'm trying to survive.

serious question: what filesystem is most appropriate for archives on a microSD card?

Is Guake/Yakuake's killer feature: one button open/close(usually F12) enought to use it?

In another os poll(since deleted) hosted on the instance 91% of users claimed their os was Linux to MacOS's 3%.

In another poll, one of the most popular ever on mastodon, 75% of more than one thousand voters claimed Linux was their 'daily driver' to Windows' 15%:

Fun fedi fact:
Linux came out on top in a poll on with more than 200 votes for the fediverse's top 'religion'
narrowly beating 'gaytheist' :
