The ethical Instagram alternative @pixelfed is launching soon, but did you know that there's another federated photo sharing site in development?

It's called #Anfora (previously known as Zinat) and it's been developed in co-operation with #PixelFed so that they will be as compatible as possible (and they both use #ActivityPub).

Anfora is asking for help and feedback, links below:

I can't remember the last time I played a game. On a smartphone or anywhere else.

I should start building my dream personal computer and get those cool games again. I guess.

Currently looking for a small and affordable apartment in .

Tried it online, and yes, it is difficult to find one. Unless you remove the word "affordable". 😅

I wish I read this book back when I was an Oracle database administrator, 8 years ago.

Now I am a PostgreSQL specialist and find that this book revealed something I didn't know.

Such a great book. For developers as well as database administrators/engineers.

I am sure the price is worth it.

Except that I don't have that kind of money.

Judging by the numbers of posts in federated timeline, I think I should learn Japanese.

After I learned French and Dutch, of course.

The code contains only 247 lines (including comments).

And it seems to be very easy to be memorized.

Should we be panicking now? 🔥 🔥 🔥

Have been planning to migrate my personal blog from wp to Hugo and stuck for months now.

I am too lazy to convert those posts.

I wonder if such service exists.

Why printing something against the company's goals at the office is a bad idea.
