Hello all! Happy New Year with good health above all!

@zladuric @TheOuterLinux
Thanks for you replies. TBH I was thinking something like torrent sharing (which I'm already doing), maybe an online radio streaming (still trying to find the best software solution to this) etc....Still open to suggestions πŸ˜€

Hey guys, do you have any ideas how can i use an old desktop PC which i loaded Linux Mint on and have some upload bandwith to spare?

Also, for those you enjoy some very old music check this radio station out. They sound relaxing and peacfull:


From their bio:
Byzantine music consisted of songs and hymns composed to Greek texts used for courtly ceremonials, during festivals, or as paraliturgical and liturgical music. The ecclesiastical forms of Byzantine music are the best known forms today.

Hey guys, anyone knows ways of publishing but staying anonymous?Eg, hosting options etc. Newbie questions here πŸ˜‹

Ok so...another major leak regarding tax evasion tactics by the rich..Is it going to change anything??

@gled Nope...The system just doesn't accept my password...

@gled Experiencing problems connecting for over a month now. I sent you a DM twice...πŸ˜•

The funniest part of the whole #Catalonia #referendum affair? An unelected official (the Spanish king) saying the vote was un-democratic.

@skiring It is indeed... πŸ˜‰ See some of his talks on youtube.

What sets mastodon.host appart?

As a general instance, we are not centered on a specific theme, or a specific language. Everyone is welcome as long as they follow the few rules we have.

We always run the latest stable version of Mastodon, providing you a stock experience, with the following modifications:

  • 2048 character limit (not 500).
  • 512 character limits for the account's bio (not 160).
  • full column width (not fixed size).
  • more search results (20 instead of 5 per type of search).
  • Audio upload (not limited to videos only).
  • full text search of statuses (not restricted to searching tags and users).
  • trending tags are displayed on the main UI ( and a more complete view is available here)
  • boosts and replies are shown in the timelines (more complete view for everyone).
  • Your mastodon.host account is also a XMPP account (Federated Instant Messaging, take a look online to find a client and use your mastodon.host username and password to configure it, you can also use our online web client). Woohoo! two services in one!
  • We also have a very good view of the federation (our federated timeline gives you a more broad view of the Mastodon network than a 'normal' instance, there's a lot to read in a lot of languages).
  • We also host a Peertube instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • In the same vein, we host a Funkwhale instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • If you want to be on a more quiet, moderated instance, or use another AP implementation, we host a Pleroma instance for the convenience. This is the same fediverse as with Mastodon, but with a different default UI and way more optimized backend. Try and see which one you prefer !
  • Now if you want a different UI, the stock mastodon one does not please you, you can check Pinafore.
  • We do also host for the convenience a video Conference server ( Jitsi Meet )
  • We have a mastodon relay for other instances to bootstrap their timelines: https://relay.mastodon.host

Although we are a medium+ sized instance, we'd like to keep the feeling that you are at home and safe here.
