Dear #Pixelfed friends: I would like you to upvote this topic on #DigitalOcean marketplace - "Add Pixelfed & Peertube"

Sharing is highly appreciated. 🙏🏼

I have noticed that my usage of WhatsApp has decreased dramatically due to being on Matrix (my handle is by the way). After Telegram & iMessage, Matrix is my preferred way to message someone, although I do wish there as an easier way to find rooms.

Hey @matrix, is there a directory online where I can locate Matrix Rooms‽ Thanks!

i just want to stay up late and enjoy some time to myself

AND get 8 hours sleep

AND swim 2+ km before the pool is full of people with no swim etiquette and who periodically scream

Spent some time improving Direct Messages in the #pixelfedApp!

Links will now open up in the in-app browser, you can easily report DMs and composing a new DM is easier! I saved the best for last, you'll just have to wait and see 😉 #shippingSoon

✨ DMs + #pixelfedApp

Unlike other projects, we group DMs by participants so you don't lose context of the conversation or previous messages.

Shipping soon to a TestFlight beta near you 🚀

And we have entered a new month with a new massive server bill :blobcatscared:

If you can, please think about supporting me in paying the bills for the various #Fediverse services I host for free❤️

If not me perhaps your own server admin :cat_hug_triangle::fediverse:

Biggest crime of Tik Tok was making people believe that vertical video was OK

Suggested fedi feature: Clicking on folks avatars will trigger audio quotes.

Here's a quick teaser of the world's first ever native-Matrix video room, powered by matryoshka-embedded Element Call. It loads instantly thanks to caching Call in a hidden iframe. Huge kudos to Robin for putting it together; coming soon to an Element near you...

If you have 15 minutes to spend in front of a computer, that's all it takes to create your first @matrix bot!

I recorded a beginner friendly guide to getting started

Early warning signs a client isn't going to a good for for @weareopencoop:

1. They use lots of buzzwords
2. They have to get sign-off for everything
3. They use MS Teams 😂

In 1997, @Wired magazine published a long file "the next 25 years will be incredibly prosperous for Humanity" before making a sidebar "unless one or two of these ten events occur". Enjoy !

Yay! It looks like Element (the company behind @matrix) updated their iOS app which is running a lot smoother now.

Did you know the fediverse Instagram alternative Pixelfed supports Stories?

You can comment and react to Stories and they even federate with other Pixelfed instances!

The #pixelfedApp I'm building will support Stories with the option to disable them if you prefer! #pixelfed #stories

Please help me get stable while I am in a bit of a financial bind

"As I work to complete my program, I realize I cannot work any kind of “regular” job. Since I am trained as and enjoy working as a photographer, I intend to freelance to sustain myself as I study. These last couple of months have been particularly difficult as I’ve tried to maintain."

Political: Bad News about Trump’s Social Network 

Truth Social is strapped for cash and struggling to find new users

Ignoring the political nature of this…news, what is interesting is Truth Social has not paid its server bill (which is in the millions) to Right Forge (the latter hosts them).

I am not surprised by this, but it is odd that their business plan was not thoroughly thought out.

It's just over a year since the worlds first steel 3D printed bridge was installed and opened.

In a few years a spacecraft will descend here from the sky and deploy two small helicopters, eager to go searching for sample tubes.

Presently #Perseverance continues its trip to Enchanted Lake, taking nice photos on the way.
