Ok, we're back!

Thanks to @hugo for all the help migrating us to from scaleway. I and my bank account (scaleway costs were insane) thank you.

@conor ping. Checking if this is working. Plz2respond.

This is an absolute farce!

"It was not proven to the required standard that contact had been made to Henshaw's head". What???

Fierce shit that the Leinster v Saracens game on Saturday never happened and the whole Heineken Cup was abandoned for this season, isn't it?

Someone forgot to tell Ulster that a 6/2 bench split is forwards/backs, not Leinster/Ulster players! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Holy crap, google is apparently taking down all/most fediverse apps from google play on the grounds that that some servers in the fediverse engage in hate speech. At least three apps I know of anyway and I'd imagine the others will follow soon under the exact same reasoning.} Seems to be the case with Husky, Fedilab, and "subway" tooter.

this is a scary precedent if google play is going to ban any apps that can in any way be used to access content with hate speech. So what about a forum client, do they take that down just because there is a forum somewhere on the internet posting hate speech?

This is particularly worrisome because for most people Google Play is the only way they understand to install apps at all.

Picture attached of one of the notices received by fedilab.

In August, @peertube entered a new stage in the development of #PeerTube v3. The objective is to raise €60k so they can implement, (1) global search, (2) moderation, (3) plugins & playlists, and (4) live streaming, here's the roadmap:

They already raised €37k which covers steps (1) and (2) and we're almost there for step (3) which is €40k.

Let's help build a decentralized alternative to #YouTube. Please boost and, if possible, donate.

OH: "GNU Emacs, which is a sort of hybrid between Windows Notepad, a monolithic-kernel operating system, and the International Space Station."

Couldn't give a ballox about and the games industry in general seems to be toxic as all fuck, but it's great to see someone taking on apple and Google's Monopoly on literally fucking everything.

Anyone know of an project to interconnect retail websites? Something to challenge Amazon with a web of shops. Not even sure that makes sense with ActivityPub.

When my house begins to feel a bit chilly I just kick off molecule tests using docker for mac. Mother of divine GOD, the noise of these fans.

:betty: Hello, #Funkwhale friend! We are looking for contributors, and maybe you could help us!

We're currently looking for development help, but there's lots of other ways to contribute. Give this new blog a read, and share with anyone you think might be interested. And @ us with any questions.

:wanda: Getting Involved With Funkwhale:

Went and translated into Irish, so I did.

Heavy use of google translate was involved, but I think I vetted it pretty well.

If you haven't seen it yet, you must see this #peertube video of @aral in action in this brilliant speech to MEP's about EU regulation.

Showing eloquently that there is a unique opportunity for EU to walk a different, better path than that of Big Tech, VC startup culture, unicorns, that only lead to more #surveillancecapitalism

That path of course is #smalltech #smallweb and #fediverse

Let's hope they finally listen over there in Brussels and follow that right path.
