Aah you’re going to make me test out a frendica account now :D I’ve only seen how it works from mastodon, which is limited but usable…

Have never got it working from my pleroma instance, but that just may be my lack of sysadmin skills.

Offshoot of Sleep when they broke up (other being High on Fire)

Something like that could be useful for organisation with a large amount of data. Sidebar would be useful. Any way to group communities to drive discovery.

A cars specific instance would be my go to option in this scenario though.

IMO There are enough english-generalist instances There could probably be some more country specific/language specific ones.

I posted on mastodon that anyone thinking about making a mastodon server for a niche community should instead look at lemmy e.g. drumming, etsy, music etc. It’s screamingly obvious to me that it would be a better approach to host a community, but requires more advocates promoting things over there.

Sidenote instance admins need to manage their instances and look to curate communities that give it an identity of its own.

Highly possible given the larger userbase.

I wouldn’t know how many entrenched tumblr users would want to go outside the local loop. Activitypub connects could entice mastodon users the other way though if they preferred the UI…

I can imagine Automattic making tumblr <> fedi integration a paid service. Similar to how wordpress.com provides free hosting with optional paid services.

My current interest in any of the post twitter startups is - does it support activitypub (or any other interop) so yeah happy about this.

Didnt know it was a thing! Reading the story made my blood boil a bit.

Mixing sludge, tribal and post-rock elements [?], from the album RAYA.

Ace of Spades might be the best album they ever made but this one if a fave of mine. The time Brian Robertson was in the band may have been short but his influence on the recordings looks to have made for a great record (two solos in one song!?) It was always interesting to hear Lemmy remind people in live recordings that this was the one that everyone hated and nobody bought, but I like to think that by doing that and playing the longs live he was secretly stoked with the reevaluation. *Re-added due to prev deletion*

I’d say 16bit era as the first, and the advent of steam as the second.


Sounds like a good fit since additional services is kind of vivalidis point of difference.

Signup is via a Vivaldi dot net account portal not the instance, so it potentially grows their audience. Who knows if it’ll work out long term or where it goes but an interesting development.

Always enjoy these insightful articles, I’m not sure how the good outweighs the bad.

Yeah could have clarified current using webmail rather than a desktop app.

Portable computing 1984: Apricot Portable
I did not know this was a thing or Apricot was a computing company. from [Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apricot_Portable) The Apricot Portable was a personal computer manufactured by ACT Ltd., and was released to the public in November 1984. It was ACT's first attempt at manufacturing a portable computer, which were gaining popularity at the time. Compared to other portable computers of its time like the Compaq Portable and the Commodore SX-64, the Apricot Portable was the first system to have an 80-column and 25-line LCD screen and the first with a speech recognition system.[3] The future must have seemed pretty bright at that time.

Paid apps not foss, but these have been my go to apps since kissing Adobe goodbye. Currently discounted. I've used the V1 apps for years without needing to pay for updates. Theres a universal bundle which includes ipadOS, mac, win versions. Also see [krita](https://mastodon.art/@krita) and [inkscape](https://mastodon.art/@inkscape) for FOSS alteratives.
