Where can I find people who use RSS to consume feeds, and who republish the curated best articles of those feeds? I want to follow those peoples' republished feeds, in order to discover new feeds to add to my own reader (and new curators to follow).

You know, like twitter/mastodon, but for RSS. Like Google Reader. Or TheOldReader.

(I'm currently using News+
and TinyTinyRSS inside Sandstorm, so I don't have an easy way to republish articles.)

We are looking for musicians using PeerTube to publish their works. Do you know any? Or any PereTube specializing on music? Any channels, collections...?

And actually test the process of recovering from backups...

I have seen a business lose critical systems when it turned out their "backups" only filled one dvd... and left an essentially unrecoverable open file...

#PSA
Dear users of phones, tablets, computers, cameras and other instruments which contains data that might be important to you.

Make fucking backups. For the love of what ever you believe in. Copy your dearest and most important files and or documents somewhere else that in case one device goes *poof* you have something you can get back to.

And please, please, please do it regularly.

You will thank your future YOU later.

Titular: El software "open source" GnuCash acaba de anunciar su versión 4.0

Madre mía titular con "open source" y GNU en la misma frase!! 🤦‍♂️

🔥 Two Git commands that have made me a better developer:

– `git commit` without the `-m` option
– `git add -p`

The former forces me to write a good multi-line commit message, and the latter allows to stage changes partially in an interactive mode.

Basically something that builds on git's collaboration tools rather than reinventing them.

Moving away from GH to gitea/gitlab/etc instances is great, but I don't want to create an account with every instance that has a repo I want to contribute to.

E-mail is the OG #federated platform

A major Dutch news broadcaster moved their online videos to a DRM'ed platform. Now I can't even watch the news anymore. :blobshrug:

New Blog Post: Switching to cgit

@cassidyjames the big lesson, that is often counterintuitive to hierarchical companies, is that giving up ownership and control in exchange for participation delivers better results, lower cost and more happy people. Weird ;)

@jwildeboer And I’m saying this having worked on projects on both sides—upstream and downstream. Working with the upstream, contributing directly means you actually get a lot of pull within the project, while also ensuring your needs are considered in future development.
