It's #introduction time 🎉
Hi fediverse, my name is Tobias - I'm a #programmer (ABAP@work, web-dev@home) and adult fan of #Lego (aka #AFOL). I'm interested in #opensource software and building stuff. My latest project is https://brick.camp and I love it so far 😊
Below some of my favorite Lego creations:
I ordered an instance on masto.host now - that's how I came across this 😂
A possibly related phenomenon is called crown shyness – certain species of trees will very politely avoid overshadowing each other in a forest canopy, leaving gaps between each others' branches.
Mostly trees of the same species will do this, but different species of tree have been observed doing this too.
Again, no one's entirely sure how the trees do this, and some botanists are probably arguing about it somewhere right now.
Don't feel bad or ashamed if you spend your week-end sleeping, resting.
It's *it's purpose*.
And in itself, resting is **not** doing nothing.
It's taking care of yourself, and allowing to gather back some energy. Some time to yourself.
Resting *is* doing something, for you. And it's a good thing to do sometimes.
and by the way: naaah it fact it still doesn't work - servers are spooky things 👻
by the way: no answer yet
>> Instead of freaking out about how ‘small’ Gumroad actually is (like I thought they would), our creators have grown more loyal. It feels like we’re all in this together, trying to do earn a living doing what we love.
Soon, we will also open-source the whole product, WordPress-style. Anyone will be able to deploy their own version of Gumroad, make the changes they want, and sell the content they want, without us being the middle-man. <<
I see the pleroma start page!!! Wooohoooooo ... it's still on port 4000 instead of 80 and I don't know why yet ... but it works ... kind of! 😂 🎉
... tries to ssh onto the server ...
... waits ...
... gets error ...
... remembers that he shutdown the server yesterday ...
-> perfect start 😂
Just sent some personal mails to EU representatives to rethink their opinion on article 13
Artikel 13 ist wieder auf der Zielgeraden – und er ist schlimmer als je zuvor https://pirati.ca/objects/ec054ce710deba5ddf2769fa70cd575eaa771c56
Enough, I really have to sleep now 😂 I'll be wasted at work later ... 👻
Hmm, still not working - now the service aborts because of missing "Hex" and asking "Shall I install Hex?" ... I already installed it, as described in the wiki:
First try failed because I used an outdated tutorial ... and because I made a wrong DNS entry, but I noticed that during second try. 😂
On second try, certbot for LetsEncrypt certificate didn't work without nginx ... which didn't work without ssl ...
.. gonna have to adapt the nginx config somehow I guess, but no clue how exactly...
I give it a last try for today currently

(experimenting with Pleroma)
programmer / 26 / exploring fediverse / mainly boosting stuff
ghosting around while deciding which instance to pick (or maybe hosting my own)
