Komende dagen maak ik een citytripje naar Antwerpen met mijn zoon van 9. Iemand tips voor een leuke activiteit?

Happy NY everyone. I’m doing a which is probably relatively easy because I just did a , somewhat on a whim.

Wanted to optimize for physical and mental health (energy, mood, emotional stability – everything, really) and ditching alcohol at least for a while suddenly felt like a no-brainer

Ff in all eerlijkheid: hoe blij ik ook ben met Mastodon, het gebrek aan immediate global search zorgt wel dat ik steeds ook naar Twitter terugkeer om dingen te lezen.

Zoals bij akkefietjes over Tate & Greta, de ‘haha wat is er nu weer aan de hand’-ervaring. Veel daaraan is toxic enzo, I know, maar het valt me wel op hoe uniek dat aan Twitter is en hoe verslaafd ik daar stiekem ook wel aan ben.

Na drie jaar weer eens WordFeud aangeslingerd voor de Kerstvakantie. Username jaapstronks. Invites Welkom

Ik zoek een leuke Nederlandstalige of Nederlands nagesynchroniseerde kerstfilm, iemand een tip?

Mijn oudste zoon is toe aan een telefoon om eenvoudig mee te bellen en sms'en / WhatsAppen. Maar nog geen smartphone. Iemand een tip voor bv een goede maar betaalbare Nokia oid?

“You can find us anywhere you get your podcasts.”

I *adore* this phrase, because it has been like two whole-ass decades and not one single venture capital darling has managed to unseat plain RSS as the distribution method for podcasts. Not one. (And they have really tried!)

Podcasts are just out there, like air. You don’t go to one place to get them; you get them from everywhere and anywhere. You can choose how you want to engage with them and manage them and it is legitimately heartwarming that nothing has ever gotten in the way of that being a fundamental fact.

This is the best of what the web is. It will never have a stock ticker or even a marketing scheme. Most people don’t even know it is there. But it endures (past the many, many attempts by squillionaire corporates to kill it) because of its absolute unshakable utility.

My suggestion: any time you hear “anywhere you get your podcasts”, send a little thanks to RSS for keeping the real web alive.

#RSS #Podcasts #ProtocolsNotProducts

I’m sick & tired of pretending that people still willingly using Twitter aren’t enabling this.

Every tweet, every login, every like is fueling his reach and god complex. If everyone who doesn’t support him would just leave the platform, he would have no choice but to reconsider how he is behaving & who he is platforming.

It’s the absolute BARE minimum we can do to stop the progression of online hatred & misinformation. YOU DONT HAVE TO DO *ANYTHING* TO STAY AWAY FROM TWITTER. #ElonMusk

Temporarily reactivated Twitter because I was missing out on a lot of stuff – it is vastly better at search discovery. But I keep doing:

“find good tweet by good Tweeter -> check bio for Mastodon handle / link -> follow on Mastodon”

And the success rate is pretty high.

Ben ik toevallig een keer te gast geweest bij DWDD, is het niet cool meer 😿

"Write Eminem-style rap lyrics about the challenges of running your own Mastodon server"

(Verse 1)
Running my own Mastodon server, it's a never-ending grind
I'm the admin, the moderator, and sometimes I don't have the time
I'm constantly checking logs and making sure everything's in line
But even with all my hard work, it's still tough to keep it fine

(Bridge)
It's not easy, but I'm not alone
I've got my users, and we're a team
We'll keep on fighting, and we'll never give up
Mastodon, Mastodon, we're in this together

(Chorus)
Mastodon, Mastodon, it's a challenge that I face
Running my own server, it's a constant race
But I'm up for it, I'm not gonna give in
I'll keep on pushing through, no matter what life throws at me

(Verse 2)
Trolls and bots, they try to bring me down
But I've got my mods and my rules, they won't be around
I've got a community of users who keep it real
They support me and help me to keep things chill
