I am not a product of my circumstances, I am a product of my decisions. - Stephen Covey

I was today years old when I learned that there is an optional column in Activity Monitor that shows you which apps prevent your Mac from sleeping.

I started daily #meditation almost three years ago and it has changed my life! If you're meditation-curious, I wrote a "getting started" guide here: https://chrisbeckstrom.com/2018/03/31/how-and-why-to-start-meditating/

Hi @gled@soteria.mastodon.host - will there be any meaning for me to beg for a peertube account (peertube.mastdon.host)? :blob_grinning_sweat:

Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking. - William B. Sprague

I’m hosting a meetup in Malmö, Sweden Nov 14. We will talk about the first step ”capture”. We would be super happy if you also would attend:


If you are not a fan of meetup.com there is an alternative here:


So tired today! Was out having a beer with a few colleagues - stood talking and missed my train. Had to wait one hour for the next one. Fell asleep on the train and missed my stop... came home 4hrs later...

Always work hard. Intensity clarifies. It creates not only momentum, but also the pressure you need to feel either friction, or fulfillment. - Marcus Buckingham

I was delayed one hour on my way home today because some a-hole decided to walk on the train tracks during peak commute hours...

Hiding from the kids... let it be Monday soon so that I can leave them at school...

I’m still around - just haven’t tooted in a while!

Is there a free alternative to meetup? Connected to the fediverse would be a good thing too!

I feel bored! Some new music would be good! Any recommendations?

Saturday morning. House is all quiet. Time to do the weekly review!

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.
