Hello, I’m the reel2bits project developper, a #FOSS self-hostable #soundcloud like with #ActivityPub federation.

It’s written in python/flask/vuejs and I need help because of health issues I’m unable to work a lot on it anymore, if you are interested to help me on some of the issues and more specially the ActivityPub part, you can contact me through:

the project matrix channel
the issue tracker
this account

boosts appreciated, thanks.


Trusted user reports error, provides screenshot, logs, stack trace, and project where error occurs.

When developer attempts to reproduce, an entirely different error occurs.

the #spacex program means fucking nothing when coupled with a scheme that will rob people of the chance to observe the sky. if its true purpose is to vomit space junk around the earth, it's in fact worse than useless.

please spread the word and get angry about this shit. #starlink is not a savior. it's positioning itself openly as anti-intellectual and anti-science - very viciously so.

if you're returning to space in order to make profit while everyone else takes a hit, stay home.

australia's lowest currency denomination is the 5¢ coin, which means

\ - prices paid in cash are rounded to the nearest five cents - rounded down if it's one or two cents above, rounded up otherwise
- it's entirely possible to pay a different amount of money for the same thing depending on whether you use a credit/debit card or cash because cards aren't rounded (the lack of a one cent coin doesn't prevent you from transferring a cent digitally)
- technically this means that if your total comes to $0.02 and you pay via cash you get it for free - i've seen a receipt of someone getting two grapes from coles for free but i assume some retailers won't let you do it, and of course if you do this fifty times in a row they'll stop you
- $x.99 prices are even more psychologically tricky - a $4.99 purchase on its own without any other items will actually be $5.00

My choice is between a fairly functional desktop that I trust to basically not have ulterior motives, or a fairly functional desktop that in some instances is actively hostile to me.

I have a desktop whose behaviour I don't have to second guess. I have a desktop whose behaviour I don't have to monitor closely or worry about to prevent shit like this:

I have a desktop where I can pretty close to fully understand everything happening if I need to.

I have a desktop where the only limitations on functionality are _technical_ limitations. I can _never_ have that with Windows.

I guess I'm going on a rant again. Strap in.

People who make fun of #Linux users who don't appreciate #Microsoft's recent embracing of Linux on cloud and desktop are missing the point in a very disheartening way. We don't want Linux, we want a #FreeDesktop.

Greta is honestly amazing. imagine being 16 and genuinely screaming at world leaders that they're bullshitting everybody and refusing to act.

"The real danger is when politicians and CEOs are making it look like real action is happening when, in fact, almost nothing is being done apart from clever accounting and creative PR,"

(climate summits) "have turned into some kind of opportunity for countries to negotiate loopholes and to avoid raising their ambition"
