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

Installed on this Mac Mini - let's see how it rolls over the upcoming week(s).

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.

@cb I’ve been dabbling with meditation for a while. And a while back I decided to sit for a while every day. Has helped me getting a bit of perspective of whats important and not.

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/

@gled@soteria.mastodon.host thanks - I got in without any issues!

@gled@soteria.mastodon.host thanks I would appreciate it! I currently do not have a lot of content and I find it incredible hard to find a decent instance. I will likely setup my own instance later but would like to get a feeling for it first.

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

@Linuxtjej you should listen to ”David & Navid” (podcast). They have the samething but they call it ”provpratar” (trail talking). Nice show btw but in Swedish only.

@Kelly_NAproducR as a Swede living in Sweden I can say this article doesn’t paint a honest picture of the truth.

Yes, there has been an increase in bombing (usually hand granades) over the last few years. But it is not ”muslim gangs”. It is organized crime fighting for drug territory or other settlements. E.g. these bombings are not aimed at normal people - they are aimed at other criminal elements. Thus rarely anyone gets injured. This is not terrorist crimes or related to religon or ”culture”.

It is a problem for sure! The police is doing a lot to stop this. Malmö (3rd biggest town - closest to where I live) was the one with most problem but here the police has been able to get the number of these incidents down.

@surveyor3 not, yet. There should be one in the mail though. I’ve used a lot of Moleskins over the years.

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...

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.
