Sick about proprietary comment platform Disqus?

Commento is an alternative replacement! Implement it on your blog / website and make the web a wee bit free'er.

Commento indeed is an fast, open source, privacy-focused commenting platform. Self-host and embed it on your own server, in a container, or on a cloud provider.

If you like Nordic 'cop-dramas' like Wallander, or The Bridge, check out the spoof series, Fallet. Pretty funny :)

Hey Friendica users!

Yo! Russian Doll is so good, everybody.

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.

I put on a child's tiara, as a goof... and may have contracted lice.

So now it is official: Facebook knowingly and willingly ripped off children, refusing to reimburse illegal charges when parents noticed - all as a means of maximizing profit. They called it "friendly fraud" internally. Wow...

If you ask me, everyone involved should be facing jail time now.

I'm trying to add as a instance in , and it's not working :/

I can't do it. My brain is melted. Am I an idiot that I can't figure out how to setup a VPN server, and host my home server behind it?

So I've setup on a free ec2 instance, and I've connected my home server to it... But now I'm stuck about how to reach my server with its URL. I have the ports open on ec2, and ufw... But I'm not sure how to 'forward' them I guess? My home connection has a dynamic IP, handled by yunohost/dyndns. It's a miracle I've gotten this far, but can someone give me the next hint please? The whole point is so I can get a letsencrypt cert.

Trying to get a letsencrypt cert, on a home server, with an ISP that blocks incoming port 80. DNS provided by , so I can't use DNS challenge method. What is my best option?
1. Migrate to a new (configurable) domain? (scared to do this)
2. Rent a VPS, run openVPN and forward all traffic through that? (would this even work?)
3. ? (You tell me)

Goddam IRC/freenode is so hard to use. Figuring out how to register/connect is the most esoteric shit I've encountered all week. I've given up.

Nice, simple explanation of Mastodon, via #peertube .... 👍

What is Mastodon?

The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization!

PSA: If you want to report any user or post please DM this account.

Pixelfed doesn't support federated reports yet and we would prefer to work with remote admins and users to resolve any issues before resorting to block our instance!
