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.)

#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. :)

So far, having a good experience with @yunohost . I've run my own pleroma instance with a VPS before, but maintaining it was always a pain.

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The darktable user manual is largely outdated.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.

#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 : joinpeertube.org/roadmap

@eylul@social.eyluldogruel.com The tire one is STUNNING.

I love the way the apple one looks like a crate with a cider-monster inside.

day 13: "fire" and day 14: "cider/apples" (suggested by @aldersprig )

very behind and I fear I will continue to be behind until next wednesday. All the same....

oh and it is the first time in 15 years that I have used watercolors... yeah well it still went better than I was expecting, sort of... xD You might see them again on later images.

day 12: "moebius" (suggested by @cidney)

Interesting fact about the möbius strıp ıs that it actually only has a single surface. That wasn't the issue through. The execution issues mostly stemmed from the fact that flat paper as thin as it is, is NOT a 2-D surface. :D

Forgot to say last time but still accepting prompts on mastodon. :)

day 11: "compost" (suggested by @Wolthera )

This was actually drawn last night, and I thought I would photograph it daytime with today's drawing. (as you can tell things didn't QUITE go according to plan)

All the same :)

Fediverse admin PSA 

Attention to #Mastoadmins

We are considering dropping support for host-meta and XRD support (inherited from GNU Social/OStatus) in next #Mastodon version, as the webfinger spec is enough and simpler.

As far as we know, no fediverse implementation relies solely on host-meta or XRD, so that wouldn't be a big change.

That being said, some deployments do (partly because of a guide I wrote ages ago, in OStatus times) depend on host-meta. That could be the case, for instance, if you installed Mastodon so that it is on social.domain.org but serving @foo@domain.org. In this case, please check that https://domain.org/.well-known/webfinger redirects to, or proxies, https://social.domain.org/.well-known/webfinger.

With nginx, this could be done like this:

location /.well-known/webfinger {
return 301 https://social.example.org$request_uri;
}

#Mastoadmin #Mastodev

There is now a Mastodon instance for publishing scientists: FediScience.

Everyone is welcome from PhD student to professor, as well as researchers from outside of academia. You are welcome to stay afterwards, but it is also easy to change to another server.

There will be a lot of science talk on this server, but there is no need to only talk science

fediscience.org/invite/j6X8z7q

Boosts are appreciated to let others know about this new instance.

Nice work!

Solutions to special problems are certainly the workspace of #3DPrinting and the maker effort in general.

Your periodic reminder that Mastodon and Email are not for personal user support.

Please use the Forum: gamingonlinux.com/forum/ - we built a "mark as answer" to make it even better.
