One of the things about Tumblr and potentially Flickr adopting ActivityPub is that it brings the feeling of mid-2000s internet back, when we had APIs and were encouraged to build cool new interconnections. Before the web was stolen from us by advertising companies.

Affelay is kennelijk alweer “oud-voetballer” – ik had hem nog mentaal gecategoriseerd als “jong talent”

Bij #SENNED werd in de eerste helft van de 45 minuten 26 minuten werkelijk gevoetbald. Daarna volgden 2 minuten blessuretijd waarin vrijwel de hele tijd echt werd gespeeld.

Liedje dat ik heb gemaakt, meteen na het jongensboekachtige debuut in het Nederlands elftal van de 28-jarige keeper Andries Noppert.
Ik had de clip vannacht op youtube gezet met zijn reddingen in de refreinen, maar dat vond de FIFA geen goed idee. Hier de versie met alleen foto's.
De tekst is te lezen onder de clip.

Zie het maar zo: we mogen vandaag weer de hele dag computeren

It’s been three years in the making, but after some gentle prompting and prodding from a few friends (thank you @nhoizey!)—it has finally happened.

We’ve finally open sourced the #Eleventy Twitter Archive project named `tweetback`:

You may have seen this in action on my site or the newly shipped Eleventy Archive

You can find the source code for the project here:

Try it out!

Samen met andere partijen schriftelijke vragen ingediend over de zwarte pieten die zich bewust bij de officiële intocht hadden aangesloten afgelopen weekend.

PLEASE BOOST: Right now Mastodon is only receiving appr. $21,000/month through Patreon.

This is not enough to handle the 1 million new accounts that will be made this week.

Currently, only 4,720 patrons are donating to Mastodon.

However, if everyone chips in $2/month, this will ensure the continued survival of Mastodon!

Be a hero! Donate now!

I remember I used to joke with friends 20+ years ago that one could save a lot of money by going for a previous-gen console while pretending it’s the latest-and-greatest.

Well, we just bought a with 7 games for € 180 and as long as no one tells me about the existence of the PS5, the prophecy has become true

The thing about Twitter is that it really lacks a lot of the features you'd expect from a true Mastodon replacement.

For example, there's no way to edit your toots (which they, confusingly call "tweets"—let's face it, it's a bit of a silly name that's difficult to take seriously).

"Tweets" can't be covered by a content warning. There's no way to let the poster know you like their tweet without also sharing it, and no bookmark feature.

There's no way to set up your own instance, and you're basically stuck on a single instance of Twitter. That means there's no community moderators you can reach out to to quickly resolve issues. Also, you can't de-federate instances with a lot of problematic content.

It also doesn't Integrate with other fediverse platforms, and I couldn't find the option to turn the ads off.

Really, Twitter has made a good start, but it will need to add a lot of additional features before it gets to the point where it becomes a true Mastodon replacement for most users.

I think is ready to take a few users! :bookwyrm: is a Bookwyrm instance inspired by the planet Anarress from Ursula LeGuin's The Dispossessed.

If you read the description and CoC and think it fits you, feel free to ask for an invite link! I'll do my best to enforce the CoC. Also, I hereby announce that I will make generous use of the deferation feature once it's working in production to keep assholes off and keep the community nice. :trebuchet:

#Bookwyrm is a federated reading platform (think Goodreads). It's in an very early state, so expect things to break - but imho it already works nicely and is enjoyable thanks to @tripofmice :fediverse: 📚

The amazing artwork for is a commission from @sajan, thank you so much! 🎨

Klaar met computeren op het werk, thuis verder computeren

Matt Mullenweg said Automattic wants to
1. Open source Tumblr
2. Integrate Tumblr (and maybe WordPress) into bluesky, matrix, and mastodon

I think my mind is blown. Not at what he wants to do per se but what this means for social networks going forward. The implications of these platforms eventually being interoperable or interconnected is something that so much ink had been spilled over in the last decade or more from being a said as a joke to something that may end up actually happening.

Like mattdpearce said on Twitter, Tumblr might just outlive Twitter and that is just so ironic and funny 🤣🤣 - Looking for freelancer

I need someone to move PostgreSQL and Redis from an Ubuntu 18.04 server to an existing fresh 20.04 server. Plus install pgBouncer and re-direct backups to an existing AWS S3 bucket.

The most important part is to make it all work with the non-docker Mastodon on the first server.

Optional extras: Set up extra Sidekiq, Puma and Streaming API processes on a third machine

Can you give me a quote on that, please? Or do you know someone who can?

The “1981 photos of Boris Johnson as a teen magazine model” are the best AI images I’ve seen yet. (Only the amount of fingers are the giveaway).


I'm gonna keep posting this until one of you fucking boosts it
