Pinned post

Back on my own Mastodon instance again 🎉 Guess I should post another on a new profile.

Hi folks 👋 I'm Jonah, this is my personal account. I'm a sysadmin and website creator working on @privacyguides and @techlore. Always looking for follow suggestions! 😃

There’s a certain irony that this 2019 post of mine now describes the site I originally wrote it for 🫠

Hey Fediverse!

The @owncast project could really use some help! 🙏

At the moment the lead dev @gabek is having to handle an awful lot at once. The platform would be much more sustainable if there were more people on the team.

Everyone who wants to help is welcome, but of course there are some specific areas where help is especially welcome:

Please get in touch with @owncast or @gabek if you want to help out!

For those who don't know, OwnCast is a Twitch-style livestreaming and chat service for the Fediverse. You can follow OwnCast accounts from Mastodon etc and you will see a post in your timeline when the account goes live. There's a site about it at and a directory of featured streams at

Boosts welcome!

Well, I’ve always said that the only good billionaire is one who gives up being a billionaire so credit where credit is due:

We are still a massive €254 short for the server bills for,,, and some more free open source services :sad_cat:

Hopefully next month I can pay most of it with a new job but that doesn't help now..

If you can, please think about supporting me in paying the bills for the various #Fediverse services I host for free❤️

If not me perhaps your own server admin :cat_hug_triangle::fediverse:

You can hide your follows and follower lists on Mastodon if you want to.

Log in through the website, go to Edit Profile > Hide Your Social Graph, tick the box and click Save Changes.

You will still be able to see these lists when you're logged in, but other people will see a message saying "This data isn't available".

Place your bets: Because the iPhone 14 has the same A15 chipset as the iPhone 13, will the 13 get a bonus year of updates to get the same amount as the 14, or will the 14 get one more year of updates than the 13 arbitrarily (i.e. the Google Pixel method) despite being virtually the same hardware?

Surprise eero hardware end-of-life

Amazon is ending software support for 1st generation eero devices at the end of September 2022. That's fine. You can't support old hardware forever, and five years is a decent run.
But it's not OK that I got less than a month's notice that it was happening, and no email or app notifications. I happened to open the eero app for unrelated reasons and saw a banner telling me my hardware [...]

Fedi is the most strange thing in the world.

On normal social media, you write a message and people just ignore it forever.

Here, you write a message, it stays ignored for 1 or 2 years, and then all of a sudden, for no reason, with no explanation, someone finds it somehow, boosts it, and it gets 200 likes and 120 boosts.

What the fuck.

I'm sure someone will boost this message in 2021 or 2022.

Do you prefer Mastodon hiding "Favorite" numbers on the timeline?

Oh my goodness, been using the Mastodon web client basically since it first came out and only just saw/unchecked the “Enable advanced web interface“ option in Preferences and… ah, bliss!
