dewb, that's all you need to know really. I run a private instance here for a couple friends / family.

I know I'm boring.. It would literally take easily 5 separate toots to tag everything that interests me and everything that I know and can do.

So i'll just leave you with one tag aka the "mother of all accepted skills aggregated into one word"

There that's better. Heres my little fedverse, extremely excited that garg is considering potentially giving us the ability to do "some of this".. across servers. I want create a map of the entire worrrrrrrrrrld.

mwa mwa

Should anybody ever need to email me directly. I've gone ahead and updated my pgp key in the about section. Please use this for any future correspondence.


Best part about owning an old school macintosh would having to call tech support for an issue.

The first thing always asked was to put the phone close to the computer and turn it on..

The tone your computer made, allowed the person to know which computer you had without you even having to tell them...

That was some cool stuff.


Been getting quite a few tor related host instances piling up within my sidekiq errors lately.. lol.

Anyone else?

Good Grief LOL

NextCloud is awesome! I use it for automatic backup of stuff on my phone, to sync calendar, contacts and todo between multiple devices. Runs on one of my OpenBSD servers at home.

Also have a more public instance, for friends and family. They think it's very user friendly - great UX. NextCloud really is a bliss.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Mastodon, is, in fact, the Fediverse, or as I've recently taken to calling it, the ActivityPub Fediverse. Mastodon is not a social network unto itself, but rather another free server implementation of a fully functioning social networking protocol, working alongside many others creating a fully-fledged social networking network.

Many users on the Fediverse are communicating either with ActivityPub or OStatus every day, without realizing it.Through a peculiar turn of events, many users are attributing the merits of the idea of 'decentralized social network' to Mastodon, not aware that it is basically the same as all previous federated social networks with a nice frontend slapped on top of it.

There really is a Mastodon, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the Fediverse they take part in. Mastodon is an implementation: a software that implements the standards as stated in the various specifications. Implementations are the most vital part of a protocol, but useless by themselves alone; they can only function if they are interoperable with other implementations of the specification, thus creating an interconnected network. Mastodon is normally used to access the Fediverse: the whole system is basically an ever-expanding universe of federated social networks software, hence Fediverse. All the so-called "Mastodon" instances are really just instances in the Fediverse.

Many users do not understand the difference between the implementation, which is Mastodon, and the whole system, which they also call "Mastodon". The ambiguous use of the name doesn't help people understand. These users often think that Eugen Rochko developed the whole system in 2016, with a bit of help.

Programmers generally know that Mastodon is just an implementation. But since they have heard the whole system called "Linux" as well, they often envisage a history that would justify naming the whole Fediverse after the implementation. For example, many believe that once Eugen Rochko finished writing Mastodon, the implementation, its users started to create more federated social networking software that was interoperable with it, and thus the protocol was alive and well.

Which is actually not entirely incorrect - the ActivityPub specification was already complete, but was struggling to find projects which could adopt it. However, it's important to remember that Mastodon previously worked through the OStatus set of protocols, which had been developed throughout the years and implemented by many different projects, including, but not limited to, GNU/Social, Diaspora, postActiv, Pleroma. Only in 2016 did Mastodon become a part of this network, whose creation is definitely not due to Eugen Rochko.
Basic features of pleroma chat, release soon.

- Realtime chat across instances
- Unlimited rooms per server
- Federates over ActivityPub
- Ephemeral (for now) like IRC, but with a server-side buffer of a few hundred lines
- Can be used with your existing pleroma account
