So during this week I successfully moved @libravatar from Freenode to Matrix (with an IRC bridge).
Time for the rest of the world to join us :)
With more details available here:
If you are blogging you might be interested in the "blogger's gathering" room on matrix. A bunch of people interested in blogging are hanging around there, talk about articles, writing, web design, etc. Basically everything around blogging.
We have the RSS feeds of all members around so people can also get feedback on their articles.
Want to join? Check #blogging:shivering-ieles.com
Wrote a little article about some odd lurker bots I noticed on Matrix:
Has been a while, but decided to finally talk about it. Maybe @matrix want to look into this. Given that my research didn't bring me any further (but I have to admit, I also didn't try really hard), I decided to just talk about it publicly.
Feel free to come up with ideas, ask questions, etc!
One of the reasons for me to found this room was that I felt like there was no chat room that offered exchange beyond the CMSes. #Wordpress has a room, #jekyll has a room, … But why not bring people together and maybe inspire each other. Also why rely on sole technical discussions. And so "Bloggers Gathering" was born.
You can find all of them with some descriptions at:
Or by using shivering-isles.com as room directory.
Besides all the hassle today that I had with my mastodon instance, I sneaked out a little update to my #Matrix page:
Looking forward to see you around and hopefully get introduced to your blog :)
If you didn't notice: There is a 1.6.0 release of Riot on its way to Flathub :)
Riot 1.6.0 bring the new and shiny cross-signing features. Means you get TOFU now, can cross-sign your devices and users, which allows easy to transfer trust between all your matrix sessions.
Just make sure you use RiotX on Android in order to have all devices compatible :)
Since I spend quite a lot of time working on my GitLab and can imagine that there is some stuff other people might want to do as well, this should be the right platform for questions and answers. The idea is to bring people together who run git hosting platforms such as #Gitlab, #gitea, #gogs, #sourcehut, etc. and have them exchanging about all kinds of topics surrounding the hosting.
See you around!
Seems like another blog article sneaked out:
It's a short tutorial about how to use @matrix room directories. As I recently learned on how to use the directory selection feature, it might also be worth reading for you ^^
And here we go: A little article about federated ecosystems like the #Fediverse and #Matrix. And guess who is missing out on it? #Fedora! I want to change that and it would be great if you could help. Therefore I ask:
Fedora, where are you?
Help us to get Fedora on board with all these awesome, new technologies we use every day already.
If you are interested in container-related topics from docker to podman and K8s you might want to join the new "Container Talks" channel I founded on matrix.
From best practices to news and sharing your experiences it should help everyone to get better in this area.
Feel free to join:
If you have any problems joining, feel free to reach out to me :)
There are reasons why I'm proud of my "home" setup:
1. It just works.
2. I know what I build, so I can fix it.
3. It's all a single login.
4. Maintenance is fully automated.
5. It federates in many ways and therefore doesn't limit, but enable me to share things.
What runs on my setup?
Quick blog post I worked on a few days ago and finally got released:
Don't forget to update our synapse instance. Version 1.2.1 is a critical security update which can lead to downgrade attacks on rooms, spoofed read recipients, people being pushed out of rooms, and more.
In order to keep rooms and your servers safe, please upgrade.
While it's awesome to see that #Matrix made it to version 1.0 with Synapse, I recommend to stay relaxed about this release.
While hanging out in Synapse Admins yesterday, I felt like the release might be a bit rushed. When you are on 0.99.2 relax and update at the end of the week. I'm sure we'll see a 1.0.1 very soon.

This is my personal microblog. It's filled with my fun, joy and silliness.
