@nydel Microsoft aquiring Linux? That's a good one! ;)

@nydel correct me if i'm wrong, but github is just one git, just as mastodon.sdf.org - is just one mastodon?

@cosullivan Sorry i couldn't help commenting on your name: my dad is a cosullivan too: cool name :) (one of Munster's finest )

@nydel i love the dictd server. For command line spelling and meaning lookups, i'd say it was unbeatable.
There are so many different dictionary packages you can include, if you need; or even convert a word list of your own.

All i know is God posts alot, and only in Japanese.
He seems to have a European name though? (and picture)

@papa @g0d
I'm sorry for bringing God into it, that was a typo. I still can't read Japanese, even with God 'and' @papa om my side. :)

It's been a while since my last post on the subject, but here are some exciting news about #funkwhale: the #federation is actually usable now, as shown in the video below:

1. We follow another instance
2. We scan it's library
3. We import some tracks from it
4. We play those tracks from our own instance

You can't imagine how happy I am to see this actually working, after weeks working on the protocol/invisible stuff!

@mikeao
Thanks. We hope we will inspire and help (technically) others to launch similar initiatives so that the number of decentralized and federated service providers grows.

@muppeth
Very cool!
There is nothing stopping any of us offering, email, chat, social, and cloud services to our family and friends in a decentralized way, like - our own server/community. Kudos to disroot . There can never be enough advocacy for, this i think.

@muppeth

Videos are great - but text then pictures, i feel, should convey all the information, or most of it, without seeing the videos. Many still have bad net connections, (or even bad hearing - like me ;) ) so videos are out.
Videos are great still. I think they are the icing on the cake!! :)

@muppeth
Their 'is' a place for centralised content: it makes things easy to find, and it focuses our attention on 'one' aspect / place .

Btw i am just writing a very brief advocacy article for all my facebook family and friends. I would welcome any feedback.
I will share here , or link to this, when done (by weekend i hope).

Please share any progress, with us. I am sure you are on the right track.

@muppeth
I think it good to have aplace where there are lots of advocacy stories, articles and links to the best, or a written piece which incorporates all the 'best' reasons to use federated services and non commercial socializing and systems via the internet.

Hi, @ajc
:) Well said! I hope 'you' become popular !!
Actually - i'm sure you already are.

The sun is shining in England! It's actually feeling like Spring at last.

'Silly Season' is upon us almost, t-shirt--coat--coat-t-shirt, ...

Time to start on the New Year resolutions! :)

@dasyatidprime I believe you! I mentioned that also, on the developers citadel.
