Pinned toot

This is some artwork I made for a client that needed cute mascots of endangered species (capuchin monkey, aguara guazu, and andean condor) for a line of bags and prints, in order to raise awareness of environmental issues. I'm quite happy with the end result. Let me know: which one is your favourite?

I'm not sure if I'm proud or ashamed, but this is my Pepper and Carrot (from the webcomic made by the great @davidrevoy ) Pin-Up fanart. I'm not very good at painting, but I'm learning slowly and steady :)

so uh since i guess you found it, is my new project. It's a search engine for the fediverse, it's not an archive nor anything malicious. You can easily opt-out (like you would normally do for any search engine), deletes are deleted, and it's not an archive!

Finally! I have Optical fiber at home. Short blog post about a year of slow DSL at country side: ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ“ ๐ŸŒฒ ๐ŸŒณ

Apertium, a free open alternative to Google Translate, is currently under development (

However, there is some disagreement in the development about whether to use certain third party services which may affect privacy:

I'm not a developer, so I don't know what the technical trade-offs are here with viability vs privacy.

However, if you are a developer interested in the project, please do make your opinion known in the thread above.

Lemmy Release v0.0.8 - Cross-posting support, transferring communites, more languages added.

IndieWeb and WordPress posts in my timeline, I am so happy right now ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ :pixelfed:

A number of people have asked how to make Wordpress blogs federate with the Fediverse (including Mastodon and Pixelfed).

You can do this by adding the ActivityPub for Wordpress plugin from here:

When the plugin is installed, it allows anyone on the Fediverse to follow your Wordpress blog.

It's still in beta, the plugin's developer is @pfefferle

Made some UI updates to Lemmy, as well as added Russian and German:

BTW I could use some pointers from anyone who might have any suggestions.

Automattic CEO Matt Mullenweg on whatโ€™s next for Tumblr:
"[Open sourcing Tumblr] would be pretty cool."

I really hope that comes true. It would really, really great if it does.

Developers and/or searx fans,

Anyone know if there's a Searx instance with a cleaner, more Google/DDG-like interface by default?

Or is anyone working on one?

I know there are other themes available but none of the current ones are as calm as DDG/Google/Bing etc.

Also, default themes are the only ones that non-tech people will ever see. If you want non-techies to use Searx, the default theme has to be aimed at them.

I'm proposing a new version of a metadata document specification for servers in the #federated #web. This aims to collect the good and avoid the bad of the previous iterations, and to be flexible enough for a large part of the federated web to implement it.

Comments very much welcome, especially from #developers working on the federated web.
