βœ… Custom domain blogs have NodeInfo showing them each as a single-user "instance"

βœ… Posts federate from blogs on custom domains

Scuttlebutt is a free and open source social network with unique offline-first and peer-to-peer properties. Instead of trying to adapt existing Web technologies for the mobile social era, Scuttlebutt is a new platform in a decentralized social ecosystem: tweeted by @MozDevNet

Its because of moves like this that I have created an account on

A quick video explaining it:

I can be found at:

I will be spending more time there I hope others do too!

$2,899 a month for 250 accounts to use the Account Activity API. Even if 3rd party clients were to break that cost up to their users... That'd be $11 per user.

It could be argued that with out these 3rd party app providers... twitter would have died ages ago.

Really disappointed with / They have decided that third party clients are not something they want to allow, and have actively been cutting off access and making difficult.

A couple of clients statements:

Well today's adventure ended in me installing Fedora Atomic/silverblue.

I've been having odd issues with laptop randomly crashing. Today determined swap was not being used no matter how high the swappiness was set. Long story short... Couldn't get it to start swapping.

I've been using primarily flatpak on my Fedora 28 install. So I figured why not try an ostree based install.

We shall see how it goes :)

People of the #fediverse, lend me your ears!

I come before you to propose a new hashtag - #BlogBoost were people can recommend their favourite blogs.

Not gonna lie, this is purely for selfish reasons so I can improve my RSS feed. πŸ˜ƒ

I think #BlogBoost should be a link with a VERY short summary. For example: - Ubuntu, Linux blog.

I'll follow this post with my first #BlogBoost. Please join in if you're interested.

#ActivityPub support is live! You can now follow *Public* blogs from Mastodon, such as our @blog

It's limited to Public blogs right now (a paid feature) so we can slowly roll this out and plug holes as needed -- once I'm confident things are stable in the next few days, it'll be available to everyone for free.

You can read a bit more about the update, and I'd love to hear any feedback / ideas / bugs here!

There's an amazing number of #ActivityPub #alternatives now available or under development:

Twitter -> @Mastodon and #Pleroma

Instagram -> @pixelfed and @anfora

YouTube -> #PeerTube ( @Chocobozzz )

Soundcloud -> @funkwhale

MeetUp -> @GetTogetherComm

Medium -> #Plume ( @BaptisteGelez )

Reddit -> @prismo and Anancus ( @tuxether )

LinkedIn -> @cloutstream

Google Calendar -> @calendar_social

Anything missing from the list? What else is needed?

Was hoping at least for something a tad bit more exciting. Peppermint at least. Oh well. A lot of these changes feel like only will truly benefit pixel and other Google Purist brands.

So from here at least productivity won't stop while I make a genius bar appointment and hope whatever is wrong is covered under warranty.

Now to step away before anything else breaks today 😁

Nada.. then I see Chromebook charger has same sized barrel connector. So take a look at wattage 19.5V 3.33A (65w) vs factory 19.5V 2.31A(45w). At this point... Why not? Plug it in along side USB-c.. Luck finally on uptick it boots and is now charging from usb-c!

Crack it open and disconnect battery connector as suggested online a few places. Not sure what I expected to happen.. but nada. Get to thinking maybe USB-c some how isn't actually getting to charging circuits. So mess with chewed up charger... Electrical tape the usual..

So I dig out of boxes my old Chromebook(HP Chromebook 14 one of the earlier iterations). Battery dead, but plug it in and Wala! Some how still chugging along. Great! I'm reachable again! So back to troubleshooting my XPS13. Out of warranty so I'm not scared to touch it..
