Calling all #Fediverse admins of instances in the #EU. The #CopyrightDirective is coming, we need to show the MEPs how massively the EU Internets will be affected.

We are preparing a list of all EU-based #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, and any other instances.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

My girlfriend needed to export data from proprietary science software. Unfortunately, the software doesn’t provide any API, so I wrote a Perl script to automate mouse and keyboard. For 953 files it took 1,5 h. It was my first exercise in Perl, and I didn’t like it. Anyway, it was faster than a human. By hand, it would need about 14 h. Writing the script took me six h. There is a significant lack of open source software in science

Turned out that I bought an used record player from an coworker on the Austrian version of craigslist. I found out because he used his work number for further questions. Now I get a to desk delivery instead of picking it up.

@ghost It's nice to have you on this instance.

Pleroma looks to me easier to maintain than Mastodon. If I had the chance I would go with Pleroma instead of Mastodon.

@medic you shuld. In case you want to access it but you don’t resolve the DNS name. It shouldn’t be in the range where your DHCP Server is assigning the dynamic IP addresses
