I recently started using "Standard Notes" for taking/syncing notes. I paid for the 5 year plan to get more features and support the developer. Now look! An excellent "Cyber Monday" sale, great for new and existing users alike. What great customer service!

@anildash Just a heads up that we're open source now:

Installation isn't as quick and painless as we want yet, but that's the main goal for v1.0. Aiming to have that released by the end of the year.

Updates since launch

> A few months have passed with Feneas. Here is a small update on things we have been doing or are planning to do, including a financial statement.

Need to find a sustainable way (Kickstarter, Grants, ect) to keep working on :pixelfed: full time otherwise I will need to start freelancing again and spend less time on pixelfed. Any ideas?

Chris boosted

If you're in the USA and haven't yet, go out an #VOTE!

I would say one of the biggest reasons pixelfed is so well known is because of how much I talk about it. I try to post about it daily across a few accounts.

If you are building a new activitypub project, try to do daily or weekly development updates and keep your project in the minds of as many people you can!

I'm currently working on a #Tarot-like deck of cards designed for #improv in role-playing games and storytelling. I have a first set of 22 cards sent to the printer for proofreading, and I'm getting ready a second set for a total of 67 cards.

Would someone be interested in proofreading/playtesting it?

Some keywords: #gustavedore, #plan9fromouterspace, #rockpaperscissorslizardspock.

Chris boosted

I can't believe pixelfed will be 6 months old in a week.

I probably would have abandoned the project after a few weeks (like many past side projects) but the support it's received has kept me motivated and inspired.

Thank you fediverse ❤️

My advice to other white people: Learn and practice how to document police abuse of power *as it's happening*. Our privilege lets us interact and record with relatively no consequence. That enables us to give detailed, accurate reports. With names and video footage.
