I opensourced our zom.bi live streaming server setup today

You can have a look on github.com/zom-bi/zomstream

It's basically nginx-rtmp and a selfmade python player frontend glued together by docker-compose.

I love how Mastodon is 100% functional and contains zero trackers.

It's almost as if you don't need trackers to make a functioning site and any trackers on other sites are wholly unnecessary and should be fought against on every possible level...

From the PostgreSQL manual:

"The first century starts at 0001-01-01 00:00:00 AD, although they did not know it at the time. This definition applies to all Gregorian calendar countries. There is no century number 0, you go from -1 century to 1 century. If you disagree with this, please write your complaint to: Pope, Cathedral Saint-Peter of Roma, Vatican."

For those who haven't heard of en_DK before, it's the "European English" (for want of a better description) locale.

It uses Commonwealth English (en_GB) for strings and ISO-14651-1 for collates.
Dates are in YYYY-MM-DD, time is in 24h HH:MM format, Monday is the first day of the week, comma is the decimal separator, currency is euro and standard paper size is A4.

Organisatorische Skalierungsgrenze: Wenn mehr Engagement und Motivation nicht sinnvoll kanalisiert werden können und in Reibung verlorengehen. Besonders schwierig dann, wenn Kraft an allen Ecken und Enden fehlt.

Die tatsächliche Bedeutung von "dezentraler Kommunikation" versteht man, wenn man Laptop und Smartphone 5cm voneinander entfernt liegen hat und die Übertragung von Bildern zwischen beiden einmal über das Internet und entfernte Server und rund um die Welt geht. Wir müssen reden.

@StephanieRose my dad tried this once but he mistook the built-up dust for a worn out felt pad. He had scraped it clean and was gluing a new piece of felt to the roller when my brother came in and asked what the hell he was doing. My family ever since refers to attempting computer maintenance when you don't know what you're doing as "re-felting the mouse"

It is somewhat ironic and quite sad that the internet that started as a distributed technology resilient enough to withstand nuclear attacks, has ‘evolved’ over the years to be a highly fragile, highly centralized infrastructure that can’t handle a server configuration change. twitter.com/digg/status/113711

#xkcd #gammaTest Chernobyl - You know when you can't hear your speakers, and you keep turning various volume controls up higher and higher in confusion, and then someone hits the mute button and there's a deafening blast of sound? That's basically what happened at Chernobyl. - Fri, 14 Jun 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - xkcd.com/2163/ #poweredByAwk

soc.zom.bi has been updated to v2.9.0 this morning.
we had a downtime of about 2mins because I forgot to run the db migration at first. 😕

the real problem with discord that makes them truly evil is that they sell their solution as being something that provides self-determination.

when you move your community to discord, you start a what they call a "discord server."

to be clear, there is not really any such thing as a "discord server," this is just marketing terminology for group functionality.

they call it a discord "server" on purpose: they want to communicate the idea that you have full autonomy on your own "discord server," when in reality you are still at the mercy of discord as a service provider. this is truly evil, this goes beyond a lack of transparency to actively lying to potential users. not even Slack does this.

we must build real alternatives to these predatory services.

You get annoyed by having to enter your #Mastodon handle each time you want to follow/interact with someone on a "foreign" page?

I got that too, but I've made a little add-on to solve this "problem". 😃

It automatically "redirects" you to your own instance.

You probably hate systemd because you think it's all about "boot fast no bash" - but it can do so much more you probably had no idea about. reddit.com/r/linux/comments/bs
