Hey everyone, I'm going to try out for a while. Feel free to follow me here. @big_diggity@zotum.net

Hello all. I'm going to try to run my own instance for a while and see how it goes. This is me: @big_diggity@social.talesofmy.life

@humanetech
I like the hashtag #Peopleverse because it gives a hint that it is something related to FB/social media, but something opposite of it. Sounds more like a revolution and a new way of thinking.

@PaulaToThePeople

So I am a shitty #Inkscape chap, and didn't want to spend too much time on this. But for half an hour work, this is okay'ish.

Happy #FediVolution 👩‍🌾 dear Fedizens. Onwards to the splendid year of #FediverseRising2022 🌄

Inspired by the hashtags on @PaulaToThePeople #FediverseTown and with a CC0 clipart to go from, here's a #Fediverse pic for you.

#Help me fedi. I have a neighbor that needs a way to make calls and videochat for #free or little cost. I have an old #Android phone we can use. I'm looking for something that doesn't need an account or phone number for setup, but also easy to use. Doesn't have to to use phone numbers, as the other party could download the same app. I would suggest Telegram, but the video and audio calls are usually pretty bad. Audio calls are most important here. Does #Jitsi have something that would work? Can you receive calls on Jitsi?

#Fediverse, while we shaped a great place to be, we are sitting ducks for disruption by corporates where Metaverses are now the talk of the day.

We need broad vision to move forward, to ensure our relevance into the future, to inspire and become more united in our quest.

We do a lot of talking and we could do with more walking. Coordinated action.

I might be dreamy or crazy, but am afraid we squander the huge potential we have.

Let's build worlds, my fellow fedizens.

My 3-year-old wanted a computer, so this weekend we built a laptop. Now they keep sending emails to their grandmother.

It's been a slow process. Picked up the center boards on 7.27.2020. The original live edge pieces cracked bad in the kiln and we waited a year to get these live edge pieces. Over that time, a couple of the original boards warped and I didn't have the equipment to straighten them, so I paid a neighbor to straighten and glue together.
I'm going to clear epoxy the large crack and Polyurethane the top, which will give it a wet look. It's coming together. 😀

Any good tutorial articles out there on navigating #Funkwhale and its features?

I'm not hosting an instance, so not installation/setup info. Just looking for some good, easy explainers for end users with an account on an instance to maximize it.

Yesterday, my family spent the entire day cleaning out the attic. We have a two level home, attic would be third level. I walked up and down attic stairs and main stairs at least 80 times. The realization that I'm out of shape hit quick. My knees were giving out. It was so bad that I was using the stairs sideways and my upper body to pull me up to prevent pain. Walking on flat ground was fine, just stairs caused pain.

Today, my legs are sore. We didn't finish yesterday, so today we are going to work on it some more. I hope I am not useless. This feels pathetic.

Every fedi instance is, in a way, a representative democracy.
Users vote with their feet.
They can also choose to not have a leader and self-host.

about me:
I can people 'bud' like a waitress at the diner calls the patron 'darlin'

Am I the only one who gets random visions of past failures for no reason? Ugh. This morning, I woke up and my brain decided to take me back to my first "real" job. It was exactly what I wanted. Electrician working for the company I wanted. I was only 22. But, I felt misplaced. Also, I didn't know any better. The boss pulled me aside and said I wasn't working at the speed they needed me to. I was eventually fired. It devastated me.
All of the old emotions wanted to flood in. I just kept reminding myself that I'm in a much better place because of it.
That created such an insecurity for me, even to this day - 20 years later.
