Check out this super cute melb.social by @ohyran!

Check them out on Mastodon or on their website: ohyran.se/

The pitch I gave was "Melbourne Hipster" and I think this is pretty spot on! πŸ‘Œ

Last August, the excellent Gitlab forge migrated to Google Cloud : -(
about.gitlab.com/blog/2018/07/

As a direct consequence, the site is no longer accessible from several countries. Indirect consequence: sysadmin and developpers in these same countries can no longer download Gitlab's source code to install it on their servers.

@Framasoft provides a mirror of Gitlab Debian repositories: apt.gitlab.mirror.framasoft.or

Feel free to share the information (in other languages if possible).

I am considering migrating mastodon.social's media storage from Wasabi to Exoscale. If anyone has any experience with them, positive or negative, let me know. Thank you!

This isn’t to say that losing my voice for a week has been the worst, it’s given me a lot of time for introspection, which is nice coming up to me finishing up at work for a few weeks

You don’t know how good you have it until you lose your voice, it’s so debilitating..

But thank god for phones (see attached)

With the Librem 5 and the PinePhone, there's a hearty uptick in #Linux phone availability. Which have you backed or plan to buy?

So my voice is finally starting to come back. I’m a bit husky today (as I was yesterday) but I did a fair bit of talking last night and I’m fine and dandy today!

When I work from home, I get the luxury of taking off my phone case and enjoying the stainless steel feel πŸ’†β€β™‚οΈ

Yet another reason it's a good idea to move on from Twitter (and Facebook) to a decentralized option like Mastodon.

"Twitter took phone numbers users gave for account security and used them to target ads"

Funny how video games get harder in the evening when more people jump on to play

what if steam games had durability and if you played them too much they broke and you had to buy them again

Losing your voice is so debilitating, and it feels like I’m taking ages to recover, it’s been 3 days!

hacktoberfest, ratrace, etc
