You can follow multiple hashtags on Mastodon very easily:

1. Search for a hashtag
2. Go to the search results column, open its options and select "Pin"
3. On the pinned column, open its options and select "Include additional tags for this column"
4. Add all the hashtags you want to follow to "Any of these"

This pinned column will then show results for the tags you add to it.

It allows you to follow topics in a single column the same way you would follow people.

Ok, due to popular demand I have added XMPP to the messenger alternatives page:

Feedback welcome, especially about the choice of apps.

I wonder if my cat is trying to get educated or just wants to be in the way

last two times I’ve seen my dad he’s talked to me about how frank zappa is overrated and then 1-2 days later he emails me a bunch of frank zappa music

Bin die nächsten Tage spontan in #Berlin und suche von Donnerstag (morgen) auf Freitag noch eine Übernachtungsmöglichkeit. Sachdienliche Hinweise gerne direkt hier oder per DM. 😉

Danke! 😊

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.

#Plume is a free open federated blogging platform for the Fediverse.

You can find out more at:

You can sign up at:

...and many other instances listed at

It's powered by ActivityPub, so you can follow Plume blogs from Mastodon, Friendica, Pleroma and other ActivityPub-powered social networks.

Eine Schande. Einfach eine Schande.

Guten Morgen, gibt es hier Sehbeeinträchtigte oder Linux Spezialisten, die uns bei der Realisierung einer Linuxumgebung für einen blinden User helfen könnten und / oder die diesbezüglich schon Erfahrungen gesammelt haben?

Don't be. You're doing valuable work and there's no need to let people stress you out for free. I set an expectation that commercial users pay me on my project's web sites now.

I might help non-paying users, because they found interesting bugs, or there's money left over from paying users, or because I'm feeling nice, but I don't have to—my time is valuable, and I don't owe random consumers of my work anything.

Oh we're talking about open source maintainer mental health again. As someone who's come pretty close to burning out on unpaid labor but is currently living off open software, here's my take:

Firstly, popularity changes everything. Building and sharing hobby projects is great and I hearthily recommend it. This is relatively little work for you, pushes you to think about code clarity and docs, and might help someone.

So, to sum up:

Yes, git repos sometimes get corrupted.
And this doesn't only happen on OpenBSD's ffs, it can also happen on ext4.

But if you have basic understanding of how git works internally, you can often fix it, or at least recover previous commit, and of course the worktree.

And a fresh clone often isn't necessary.
