Hi everyone! A little late for the self-introductions, but here goes!

I'm a devops/systems/infra geek and would love to chat with anyone passionate about technology, regardless of field.

Currently, I'm interested a lot in -hosting .

In my spare time, together with many others, we co-organize bi-weekly drinking sessions, so if you're ever in and would like to meet other techies, just hit me up👋​

Did you hear the word? LibrePlanet 2022 videos have been published! Everything from command line graphic design to brain hacking. Read about their publication and check out the videos on #PeerTube.

But the best reason to get into cassettes is simply this: it's often the best analog format for the price.

Sure, you could buy vinyl for $60.

Or, you can buy the same album on a cassette for $10.

Maybe the vinyl will sound better than the cassette. But 6x better? Doubtful.

If sound quality is a concern, get yourself a nice Nakamichi or Yamaha or Sony deck. They cost a pittance in comparison to high end turntables, but often sound better.

Quality isn't just about media, but equipment too.

Help contribute to #Owncast !

Owncast is a growing open source project that is giving freedom, flexibility and fun to live streamers.

Unfortunately the project is lacking in contributors and there’s gaps in skillsets that we’d love to fill so we can get even better at building tools that make a difference for people.

See more information at

Setup on my homelab for my TV.

I'm loving it so much. Is there any recommended iptv (free/legal) resources to checkout?

If you're on Mastodon, you don't need to do anything special to interact with other Fediverse platforms.

Their posts will look just like Mastodon posts, and you'll interact with them the same way. You probably won't even notice you are interacting with anything outside Mastodon!

See the attached images below for an example of interacting with a PeerTube video from within Mastodon. The account used in the example is @yesterkitchen, you can try interacting with it yourself if you like.

By the way, to see what a post looks like on its home platform, click on its datestamp at the end of the post. This will open it in a new browser tab or window.

Even two years on, I still have no idea which direction #Bluesky is intending to go. Though it seems like if they wanted to adopt an existing protocol, they would've already done so.

I'll only say that the challenges of building a decentralized social network are anywhere but the actual protocol. Mastodon started on one protocol, then switched to another. Decisions that matter are in product design. Marketing.

If they propose a new protocol, what would make it worth resetting all that to zero?

coffee machines 

Been thinking about getting a capsule coffee machine to accompany my v60 + Aeropress.

I'm torn between getting a Nespresso Vertuo or a Nescafe Dolce Gusto.

I am leaning towards the Nescafe because it seems more convenient to make a larger variety of drinks (tea/milk based) besides coffee.

But yet at the same time, I wonder if I'd miss out on decent coffee choices from the Nespresso.

Any recommendations/experiences with either?

I wish AntennaPod will allow me to list new episodes on AndroidAuto and play them on the fly without having to add them to queue before hand.

I really want to replace my PocketCasts with my selfhosted gpodder sync server.

Are there any web-based clients out there?

I'm fascinated by the API spec for synchronization and episodes but is it me or is there no viable web clients out there that can play and use gpodder synchronization? (I know there's Cloudcaster, but it looks like it might be a dead project)

Or is gpodder as an open spec/agreed standard dead for podcasting?

SRE/Platform Eng/Ops type folk — how do you guys handle being on multiple on call shifts at the same time? Eg. Different on call rotations for different products/teams that you support?

Appreciate any tips or perspectives !

Since getting introduced into the fediverse community, I'm starting to find small little gems.

Been seeing alot of references to the gemini protocol and found this little site to help those interested in finding out a little bit more about it.

I'm mounting 3 additional NAS (NASs? NASi? NASSASSESSESES... 3 points to your house if you know the correct plural)...anyway, I'm mounting some additional storage arrays in the cabinet. As much as I like how super convenient my diagnostic monitor is, I need to retire it to regain some space. Other than KVM switches, what are your suggestions for compact monitor solutions for troubleshooting at the box level?


I'm starting to actually physically feel mildly infuriated when I see ads on my twitter stream.

Wow, :xmpp: #xmpp client @dino released new version with full 📞 #call support. I tested both 🔈audio and 🎥video between #conversations and #dino. It worked perfectly. 👍 👍

Ukraine, Presidency 

Just wanted to share that President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's TV series "Servant of the People" where he plays a history teacher who unexpectedly became President is actually on YouTube with English Subs.


Day 6 - Antigen Tests still showing positive, although the lines appear to be more faint now.

In one more day, I'm legally able to be able to leave self isolation but it sure doesn't feel safe to do so.

In the meantime, my sore throat appear to got worst at D5 which is a little worrying ...
