New to this instance but not to . Used to be @cybette but that instance went offline since beginning of 2019 with no way of contacting the admin. Thanks @xvilo for the cordial invitation and here I am! I get another chance at , not sure what else to write, as all I really want to do is reconnect with people and resume the conversations.

One of the new things at #fossnorth2019 will be the #communityday . You can check it out here: .

We have an amazing line-up of projects and an equally amazing group of companies providing us with space.

"Foreign-background taxi drivers face ; kids can soon legally have two moms from birth..."

In some ways is progressive, yet it's not without issues that takes the country a few steps back.

Yay, I'm going to see #BFMV in April in #Tallinn <3 Anyone going? I'm going alone so company welcome!

This band has been super important for my mental #health during the divorce process. I reflect my emotions through music and without the music I would not be able to process some of those emotions. I owe it to these guys to go and see them live.

Hey all, @Loa is asking for websites (on our behalf), for looking for places to rent in the UK

Any recommendations are welcome!

Yes, we're looking at moving soon™. No, we haven't talked about it publicly yet.

Boosts are welcome

Riot, the default and most mature client for #Matrix just hit 1.0, with a huge redesign <3 If you have ever checked Riot before, but didn't like the looks - please give it another try! If you haven't tried it but like things like, dunno, #Slack for example, have a try and you might be pleasantly surprised.

I often hear that since disabled individuals are the minority of the workforce, we don't have to prioritize #accessible software development... 62% of blind people are unemployed, and it's partially because of inaccessible software. If it's not accessible, it’s not ethical. #ux

Calling all #Fediverse admins of instances in the #EU. The #CopyrightDirective is coming, we need to show the MEPs how massively the EU Internets will be affected.

We are preparing a list of all EU-based #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, and any other instances.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

Breaking: The text of #Article13 and the #EU #Copyright Directive has just been finalised

Please reshare widely and **take action**. This has the potential to endanger the #internet as we know it, making it more and more composed of only large platforms.

This has the possibility of killing #alternative #socialmedia projects and small #startups trying to compete with the big #corporations.

Another Synapse release candidate for you, 0.99.1rc2 - thanks for your feedback so far. Check it out at

There's construction work going on in the apartment building, so I decided to blast some to drown the drilling and hammering. Wrong choice. Too much of an emotional workout (especially when trying to get work done). Maybe some (band) instead to calm down? :P

"Netflix JavaScript Talks - Making Bandersnatch"

It's really cool to see how they made this. Some of my most interesting takeaways:

- Because of the reality of devices and networks, they told the content creators to give them 1-2 second wiggle room on some scenes, to make the scene transitions seamless.
- The logic is defined by the server, so that bugfixes can be quickly shipped to all platforms.
- They wrote unit tests! For a movie!

Also kicked off the discussion for community to use the @matrix bridge into especially for new users who are not familiar with IRC, or those who might want an easier way to remain connected (and have chat history). Does not affect those already using IRC and want to stick with it.
