Pinned toot

I would love to have more suggestions for this year's . :) I am not following any official lists and instead going with my own partial list and suggestions from mastodon. You can comment to this toot and I will try to add it.

(please be aware that I don't always interpret things literally and create works that are abstract or highly stylized.)

Developing themes for @write_as / @writefreely has always been a bit of a pain. I've gotten used to working around the limitations, but I always wanted to make the process accessible to more people.

Today I'm finally releasing 🐴 CSShorse, a tool for editing #WriteFreely themes and previewing your work in real-time, with your real blog. (Based on @htmlhouse.)

The Curator of boosts lots of interesting posts by artists from across the Fediverse. You can follow them at:

➡️ @Curator

As well as pictures, they also recommend creators of interesting photos, videos, audio etc.

This is maybe the best account to follow if you want to discover art on the Fediverse, highly recommended 👍

@eylul there’s a hardware section on the about page of most servers and there’s a faq on the main site:

I currently run a single user PeerTube on 2 vCpu, 500MB ram (amazon t3a.nano) (without the database). Normally this runs fine, but is definitely too small to do transcoding. A recent test took 24 hours while the same job took a few minutes with 2GB ram. Previously my server ran on 2 vCpu, 1GB ram (t3a.micro) (including the database) and that only causes minor swapping during transcoding and is quite doable. This seems the best configuration for a single user site.

Cpu % hardly ever exceeds 1%.

Storage is fully dependent on how many videos you’re going to upload. You can use S3. About transfer I can’t say much, since mostly this is handled by the S3 servers and I don’t see it…

okay question does any of users especially single node instances can tell me how well it works on a vps? what are the storage / transfer requirements cpu requirements etc look like?

Just in case you wanted to hear me talk about implementing rotating space stations for #VR with #GodotEngine for 45 minutes and missed the original at this year's #LibreGraphicsMeeting, here you go:

#Nextcloud is used in small & big companies, at home and at schools and universities. But there are many other ways it gets used - have a nice use case for us? We'd love to hear about it! Reply here, or DM us!

sorry about vanishing for 12 hours, it looks like my instance ran out of space. :)

If you're interested in setting up a #Mobilizon instance, #Yunohost has an application for this !

Package with version 1.0.0 is currently in testing (we're trying to find a way to properly run our test suite ...!)

The darktable user manual is largely outdated. Problem is it uses an esoteric kind of XML required by a brittle software stack (Saxon) to be compiled into HTML or PDF.
This complexity steers away many contributors.
But thanks to Chris Elston, @secretlifeofmatt and @paperdigits, it is being rewritten in Markdown with a better "tutorial" approach.
Contribute :

#darktable 3.4 will let you define exports size directly in pixels (as in 3.2 and before) but also from the physical printing size × printing DPI.

Long-asked feature…

Thanks to @debian 's €10,000 donation (and not $10,000 as announced a few hours ago), we've just reached the 4th step of our PeerTube fundraising. Many thanks to all those who donated. And it's not too late to contribute :
