I made a script that lets me turn my into an feed:
You can download it here: neil.mckillop.org/mastodon_rss
I mostly use the bookmark feature on Mastodon as a 'read later', this way I can save a list in my rss reader and mark them individually as read (my browser bookmarks etc also go into that category).

When you receive a commission asking: 'Please could you paint a Friday night at pub kicking out time, with all the fights, kebabs, and throwing up in gutters, but in the style of the Bayeux Tapestry?'

A fine example of what I can only describe as avant-Romanesque by Jim'll Paint It.

FediFollows has been on the #Fediverse for one year! 🎉 🎂

A huge thank you to everyone who suggested accounts so far, and to the accounts themselves 👏

Hand-curated directories are often seen as old-fashioned, but I think they have a role in getting people started on new decentralised social media.

FediFollows currently has 2.3K followers across a wide range of instances, so even people who don't follow me are more likely to see these interesting accounts in their hashtag searches.

Go Fedi!

FTR. I have no #facebook. No #instagram. I do have #mastodon, #pixelfed and #peertube. I don’t have #Spotify or #AppleMusic. I buy vinyl, CDs, DVDs that I rip. I never used #Alexa or #Siri. My #Homeautomation is built with the #NoDefaultGateway principle. Local network only.

@stux Maybe some sort of futuristic 'sheet metal' with a hollow filled with asteroid dirt.

watched The American Astronaut off the back of @neil's recommendation and it was super interesting. it was a little silly in places but visually it was so exciting, the costumes and set designs were fantastic and the high contrast black and white works so well, channelling the aesthetic of old silent films. the scene in the space barn and and the performance on Jupiter were a real highlights.

it says a lot about a film when i'm still thinking about it weeks later, a definite recommend!

Three logicians walk into a bar. The bartender asks "Do all of you want a drink?" The first logician says "I don’t know." The second logician says "I don’t know." The third logician says "Yes!"

@yaggah I think by default all users have 1gb, would be happy to increase that if needed. The server has 2tb.

@mike67it @fatboy There's the obvious command line solution of just rsyncing the data somewhere. Alternatively, you can set up the client on both machines and have it sync the data to your desktop (works exactly like dropbox) - if you both mark your main folders as "shared" and give each other read permission, then you can tell the client to sync that too (so you'll both have each others data, available offline, in case anything happens to the server).

@dctrud @kensanata Might be worth setting up a list of discoverable matrix rooms/servers somewhere, for example there is the open rights uk matrix room I just discovered :openrights.modular.im

@dctrud @kensanata I run one that is regional, matrix.glasgow.social (it has rooms like :glasgow.social etc) getting quite popular, mostly or focused though
