(archiv) Die GEMA sieht ihre Fehler ein

Was passieren kann, wenn man beim Wechseln des handles den Alten nicht reserviert.
hatte damals so schlechte PR, dass sie ihren username gewechselt haben.
Was sie nicht bedacht haben:
Der alte username wird nach der Änderung für jede*n freigegeben und hat noch zig backlinks auf diversen Seiten ;)

I don't understand how I once survived without Sieve mail filters.

Team #NewPipe proudly announces a self-hosted #FDroid repository, providing the official NewPipe app as well as – in the future – NewPipe Legacy. The F-Droid repository is a convenient way for users to update more quickly, which is especially useful whenever one of the supported services break.

I believe this is the best way forward for F-Droid. Relying on a centralized main repository is a weakness.

I just can't get over how great StreetComplete is. It looks fantastic, is incredibly easy to use, and actually makes it fun to contribute data about the Real World for the benefit of everyone.

If you run Android, be sure to give it a try: #OpenStreetMap #StreetComplete

#keyoxide has recently launched as a partial #keybase replacement with easy #pgp #encryption and #decentralized #identity proofs using #open standards!

And every keybase user already has a keyoxide profile!



What is ?
Is it an ideology regarding self and decentralized hosting? Is it a framework? I have not clue, but the feeds I follow mention it a lot. I've tried researching it, but haven't gotten that far. It's all filled with wannabe PR/buzzword lingo.

I honestly want to know what it is. Can anyone help me out?

What the internet was like in the old days for a #developer.

Also important to understand where the #git "pull requests" comes from ;)

Ich hatte ja ne @fragdenstaat Anfrage gestellt wie viele Leute wegen schwarzfahren verurteilt werden:

2018 gab es 59064 Verurteilungen wegen schwarzfahren. Es gab in dem ganzen Jahr nur 684335 Verurteilungen wegen Straftaten allgemein, das heißt 8,6% aller Verurteilungen in D waren Beförderungserschleichungen (§265a).

das ist die Zahl, die wir auf 0 senken müssen. fast 60.000 Leute, die für ihr Menschenrecht auf Mobilität kriminalisiert wurden. let's go.

Möchtest du in quasi Echtzeit wissen, was gerade in eine Datei 📝 geschrieben wird oder live beobachten, wie sich deine 💽Festplatte füllt? Mit watch 👓 geht das:

$ watch -td df -h

Die Option -t schaltet die Kopfzeile aus und -d hebt Änderungen hervor. Wir sehen mit 'watch' beim Befehl 'df -h' wo gerade was passiert.

Das hier ist z.B. eine kleine ⏲️ Uhr fürs 💻 Terminal:

$ watch -t -n1 date

Wobei -n den Aktualisierungsintervall auf 1 Sek. festlegt. Standard sind 2. 👩‍💻

What sets 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 account is also a XMPP account (Federated Instant Messaging, take a look online to find a client and use your 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:

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