Full disclosure; I've done some paid work for Snikket, including drafting some blog posts. But I don't work for tech projects I wouldn't endorse anyway.

had a couple of old phones laying around, so i installed Orbot and made them Tor snowflakes to help people like political dissidents, journalists, and denizens living under repressive regimes dodge censorship. you can set it up on your computer and won’t even notice you’re helping.

We need help to pay for our backups. This is a yearly funding campaign that we do, so if you can help us please see here https://www.tromsite.com/trom-backup/ - we only need 300 Euros for a full year of 4TB encrypted backups.

This means everything from our videos and documentaries, books, websites, including trom.tf (meaning all of the files that users have uploaded to our services - from Peertube videos to Nextcloud files). Everything!

300 Euros to make sure that we have everything backed-up in a secure place.

Please help if you can and thanks a lot for doing that!

Introducing the Open Science Network 🔬
We're thrilled to be part of this initiative dedicated to building open and federated digital spaces to push the boundaries of open science and scholarly communication.
🔗 Explore more on the website: https://openscience.network

For better interoperability of the archival guarantees I would suggest using:
#IPFS and
#solid #pods
https://solidproject.org/about
with the integration of
#noosphere knowledge graphs

https://github.com/subconsciousnetwork/noosphere/blob/main/design/explainer.md

All together these can provide strong security/transparency and "easily" moving data from server to server (Considering that scientists change institutions).

My graphic showing cumulative change in the mass of reference glaciers around the world has now been updated with 2023's data. We are losing ice.

Graphic available at: https://zacklabe.com/climate-change-indicators/. More info: https://wgms.ch/global-glacier-state/.

in reply to Zack Labe

Thank you. Can't call myself good at graph interpretation, but there appears to be a significant change in the plotted slope.

The loss of glacier ice loss appears to be accelerating!

in reply to Zack Labe

One more of those very not comforting curves demonstrating accelerated warming.

How anyone can still doubt whether it's an emergency is probably related to where their money comes from.

> In future updates on Mastodon, maybe Admins can simply click a button that says “Ban Temp E-Mail Providers” Automagically from the E-Mail Menu? There could be E-Mail categories that can be banned, such as temporary mails

Maybe this needs to be the default, with a button to undo it.



- Why people do not take time to stop and reflect on their environment?
- I think, it's because our society values productivity above all else. We're constantly bombarded with messages telling us to work harder, do more, achieve more. As a result, we often prioritize accomplishing tasks over taking breaks or enjoying leisure activities.

“Your periodic reminder that less ice at the Arctic is consistent with a weaker jet stream that allows cold air to drift down into the Great Plains.

The frigid temps you're experiencing happen BECAUSE of a warming planet, not in spite of it.” Via Dr Steve Campbell from the other place

He later references https://www.climate.gov/news-features/understanding-climate/understanding-arctic-polar-vortex

There are 4 services that we use for TROM.tf via @YunoHost that are either broken or not updated in some time. I will try to look more into, but these are :

Friendica https://github.com/YunoHost-Apps/friendica_ynh see https://github.com/YunoHost-Apps/friendica_ynh/pulls
Nextcloud https://github.com/YunoHost-Apps/nextcloud_ynh see https://github.com/YunoHost-Apps/nextcloud_ynh/pulls
Discourse that's broken https://github.com/YunoHost-Apps/discourse_ynh
And unfortunately Peertube that seems to suffer from some bugs with the update https://github.com/YunoHost-Apps/peertube_ynh

If anyone can help out that'd be awesome, because it would help us all. If not at least support Yunohost financially if you can afford that https://donate.yunohost.org/

Yunohost is a fantastic project that allows us to provide so many trade-free services for everyone.

I hope they/we can find a solution for these packages....

Clear the decks.

TLDR We can't burn the human power as we did in '23. We're requesting a "staff" donation goal in the hopes the community will back RFF going all in for '24. If not we'll scale back offerings and initiatives.

Either way we still need more help from the community for station direction and community building and outreach out in the feeds.

more comradery. more events. more love. more fun.

Huzzah! Finished the next tarot artwork. Card 55. Pre-released it yesterday on https://www.patreon.com/sylviaritter #art #mastoart #fediart #tarot

reshared this

in reply to Sylvia Ritter

well done !
ive been following this series for some time. (a few years maybe?)
i love how you keep the details of the original in place.
ive learnt that this card contains also a meaning of 'the dangerous things that creeps from the depths and hide in the shadows'.

also i wonder if you'd ever consider doing one series on the runes from ralph blum, i'll totally buy a deck of those cards.

@jerobarraco Hey there. Thank you so much. 🙂 I like the darker interpretation, too. Currently, just happy to finish the current deck. It's the main goal to make it as good as possible

With the amazing images coming back from Juno's flyby of Io, I finally took a stab at processing some JunoCam images. This image shows Io's north polar region from 2839km distance.

No, WaPo, climate change has been here long since. This kind of headline oversimplification is not helpful...
