For real, though.

I have a PHP-based ActivityPub (micro)blogging service and platform I have begun work on. It is extremely early stages, because I do not have a high rate of code output, but I DO have good project organizational skills and structural design.

If you have interest or experience in PHP, CSS, or Regular Javascript and want to help make a modular, extensible alternative to Mastodon, hit me up. I would be happy to discuss my ideas and hear yours.

Help: there's a video out there of police surrounding someone wielding an axe or something like that. Just with the help of shields they are able to take him down. It happens in a small street and the video is taken from a room in perhaps the second or third story.

It went viral some time ago, but now I can't find it. I need it. Please, does anyone know wher I can find it?

No, wait! I forgot, my most fav shortcuts are:

AltGr + . = …

AltGr + - = –

I use these all the time! In Windows you have to memorize a four digit code (Alt + XXXX) to get these, and it only works on keyboards with a numpad. That is totally crazy to me! Especially the – is normal to use all the time!

My fav keyboard shortcuts on (Gnome?):

Shift + Print Screen = Select an area to screenshot

Alt + Print Screen = Screenshot this specific window

Representing Sunrise Movement at the most important political meeting in Norway this year, the Norwegian Green Party convention.

How can I get a map in print quality/resolution with more than one gpx drawn on it?

So what I need a service or application where I can upload 5-7 gpx files and get a pdf or other high quality map with those tracks added on, high enough quality that I can send it to a professional print shop.

Yes, I've looked at I've also tried inkatlas, which worked, but the tracks does not look good at all.

Thank you!

So, there's a new social network getting funded on Kickstarter. I sent them a message asking if they will be federated. I'm not holding my breath

France's largest free software organisation @Framasoft has just launched a crowdfunding campaign for an open federated events tool, Mobilizon:

Mobilizon would replace Facebook Events and similar closed services.

It would use ActivityPub, so people would be able to organise events on the Fediverse.

You can also follow its Mastodon account here:

At least Lightning works in the newest version available on, so that's a huge relief!

How come the only Thunderbird available in Ubuntu 19.04 is from the Snap store and is an older version where Lightning, and thus the Exchange calendar system that almost all workplaces use, does not work?

And how come the Thunderbird website does not have a .deb or any other package for installation, just a tarball you have to extract, and thus can not integrate into you system without beeing much more of a geek than I am?

This is an extremely important read!
