You can browse tens of thousands of music tracks that are legal to download and share at: specialises in #CreativeCommons tracks and other #Libre music, much of it from the Free Music Archive ( The FMA has been under threat recently, so is a sort of lifeboat for the content.

I was going to announce it a bit later and more properly, but Mastodon received a $70k grant from Samsung NEXT through OpenCollective. I intend to make it available to those who contribute to the project, and have already notified some of the most regular contributors. The way OpenCollective works is that anyone can submit an expense and all transactions are listed transparently. It also holds the money.

As for myself, I intend to continue using Patreon for my own wage/costs.

Just a wee little testing of some yunohost instances. Nothing to see here.

@yunohost has now 3 apps for #federated #blogging application.

1. Plume:
2. Writefreely:
3. Osada(with Articles, Wiki and long posts):

Which is your favourite? Which features you like that is not present in other app? Which platform is ideal for blogging?

I leave these questions to be answered by our precious and enthusiastic people using #Yunohost

Wow, these are like something that Uncle Casey would use... oh wait ... I am Uncle Casey.

Keeping @write_as in my RSS reader has enabled me to come across diverse readings that I would never have encountered before. They are not filtered by some algorithm based on my own previous visitations or reading patterns.

I have read about power division in the Ukrainian Church, personal experiences with Depression, look at RFC 1, spiritualism, alcohol abstinence, and a rather surprising post today:

Without judgement made, I do find it (like the others) thought provoking.

Shoutout to Framasoft (, I found them recently through @hund and their software is very useful. In particular Framadrop and Framapic are great, file hosting and image sharing without any bells and whistles. No accounts, just upload the files and share the links :)

to all the Fediverse. I wish the best to all and all my best to you. May we all be excellent to each other!

Congratulations @pixelfed and I must say that the timing was ever so grand.

2018 was a year of great growth for the . I truly believe that 2019 will be a year of even greater growth with multiple social, political, and economic issues acting as catalysts and testaments for the need of decentralization and selfhosting.

We will be deploying federation support later today, the service may be unavailable during this time. #pixelfed #helloFediverse

@Gargron We wish you a very Merry Christmas! 🎄

Thank you for inspiring a new generation of ActivityPub projects, we wouldn't exist without all the hard work you and others have done! ❤️ #fediverse #mastodon

For over 8 hours Jason Scott has been doing a live dramatic reading of Leisure Suit Larry source code. And he's still going!
