The first post for is up.

A question for the users out there with Olympus . I have an Olympus TG-830 that uses . To maintain the accuracy, it requires you to use a Windows application to update the GPS (usually every 11 days). I no longer have access to a Windows system (and haven't for quite some time) but would like to knock the dust off and use this great device again.

Anyone have any successes with updating the aGPS in Linux?

v0.8.0 will be one of the biggest releases yet. We hope to release it this week.

We will dedicate v0.9.0 to community feedback and feature requests before the big v1.0 release due in the summer! #pixelfed

hey, in case you didn't know already @funkwhale is looking at setting up their org as a Non-profit.

@eliotberriot reached out to me in regards to diversity concerns, but I'm not the right person to answer those questions.

If any of you are though, feel free to reach out to him here, or check out their discussion here:

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:

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.
