I plan to host different Fediverse apps under the darmstadt.social domain for different users and use-cases. Since everything is federated via activitypub I find it natural that those different applications should integrate with each other and also appear as a unified platform to the user. What are others experiences and opinions about this topic? What do you think? Let me know I'd like to discuss this

I've just noticed this detail in a Doom Ethernal trailer. I wonder if anyone can read this...

Hi @libravatar ... fancy crafting a quick PR for github.com/getsentry/sentry/is ?

github.com/getsentry/sentry/se shows that they have a settings.SENTRY_GRAVATAR_BASE_URL i; but a fuller fix would be an internal renaming of all things relating to avatars coming from outside ...

My tests came to an end so far. I think that at least the cluster (v0.13.0) isn't mature enough yet. For a reason that stays unexplained it was unable to upload my website properly and missing the main.css file, after reporting a successful upload for the directory.

That's certainly a dealbreaker for me. Maybe I'll try again in a year or so.

Mhm, any recommendations for gamepads on linux?

Looking for something that works in best case out of the box.

I saw some discussions around @keyoxide and a comment about how #keybase is more novice friendly caught my eye. So I decided to checkout @yarmo 's excellent documentation and create an interactive (hopefully) novice-friendly script.

Here's Keyoxidizer: github.com/shombando/keyoxidiz

This is work in progress and the notation is a shameful hack, so I'd love to help to sort it out. It only supports Mastodon now but I plan to incrementally add other platforms (that I have accounts on). PRs welcome!

There is a IPFS cluster running in my infrastructure now. I'm not completely sure what I'm going to host on it. Most likely a version of my blog, but there are still some open questions.

I can highly recommend checking out #StreetComplete[1]. I Spent some time with it during my cycling trip today and completed about 60 quests :). It's a bit addictive.

But I also noticed that it's a lot less fun inside Berlin, it seems like all the easily solvable quests are already solved everywhere here. (Which of course means the #OSM quality here is insanely high.)

Ironie pur. Das Brettspiel "The Landlords Game", heute als Monopoli bekannt, wurde 1904 von Elizabeth Magie Phillips als Antikapitalistische Kritik an der Ungleichheit in der Bevölkerung erfunden.

Pro tip: Make sure your software is able to run in first place before deploying it into production.

It's just a coincidence that after a little downtime of my flagship/example/demo instance of libravatar-nginx this commit arrived that ensures the very basic functionality:
git.shivering-isles.com/shiver

People who are more into testing and want better test coverage are very welcome to contribute and replace my primitive first attempt.

It's fun, it's easy and it does good.

I even learned that they renamed a city around here quite recently.

There is one thing I really dislike on matrix and that are bridged rooms. As always when you try something multiprotocol it ends up as a mess. Like freenode routinely kicking users from room for no reason except of "you didn't authenticate to nickserv". Which generally speaking is fine for IRC but only causes problems with the matrix bridges. I would love to see that we get rid of bridges but that doesn't seem to be the trend 😐

@sheogorath There was a post in the Linux Mint website with upcoming features for 20.1. I asked, nicely, if we could investigate adding flatpak management to the Software Updater already. 😉
