"Abuse complaint regarding your server"

Actually we are accused of phishing haha simply because of that....having a Nitter instance. They think probably that our instance is a scam/phishing website impersonating their twitter page. That's my projection at least,


One of my arguments is that one of Elon Musk’s contributions to transportation over the past decade or so is really to try to stifle alternatives, things that would try to get people out of cars. Because he is this automaker, he has this desire for people to take cars instead of taking transit.
Is anyone surprised that Musk's incentive is to sell more cars? The same situation, over and over again, for centuries now. "business" humans trying to trade their shit, one way or another, by all means.

Read the entire interview here, quite telling and not surprising.

He is a slimy car salesman and data miner, not a genius. The problem is that not enough people see through him.


The ruining of "free" and "donation".

Instead of the Soulseek app we could use the Nicotine+ app from https://nicotine-plus.org/
Nicotine+ is a graphical client for the Soulseek peer-to-peer network.
It was removed from TROMjaro as well. It has the same "non features" as the main one. You are limited in terms of download queues and such.

There are other trade-free similar apps like https://www.tromjaro.com/tixati/ or https://www.tromjaro.com/gtk-gnutella/ and so on.


A huge and massive thank you again to @Roma for the huge 500 Euros donation to TROM. Amazing help hard to believe. We are working furiously on TROM II and we keep all of our 30+ trade-free projects alive and relevant. Any donation prolongs our work. We do not buy fancy shit, unnecessary things, or anything except food to support us, and pay the bills.

Thank you for supporting TROM month after month. Even if it is a lot less than we may need, we try to support the project via other means too. We currently have enough funds to work on TROM for a few more months, thanks to your donations. https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ #tromlive

That's awesome!


While TROM is focused mostly (if not entirely) on the digital world and creates/enables a ton of trade-free alternatives for digital services, someone like Colin is trying to make people share physical goods, but also services (online or offline). His project ShareBay https://www.sharebay.org/ recently got a new design. Check it out and use it if you can.

In the future TROM will also create more such projects that reach beyond the digital, and will try to push the education/information via such projects. We may even collab with Colin on this project.

Great job Colin, one of the few who keeps on being active and doing important projects. #tromlive

Its important to note that https://trade-free.org is a decentralized movement like the free software movement, so anyone can be a part of it if they want.

Our TROMnews Illustrations is back https://tromnews.com/illustrations/ !! We gave up trying to pull an RSS from instagram accounts, and we do so from Twitter now. Luckily these accounts have twitter. This section is perhaps the most TROM relevant of all of the TROMnews section, as it represents important ideas and criticisms of this society, via illustrations. Very very powerful.

If you know more such artists let us know so we can add them to the mix!

I think your initiative was quite interesting because something I think is missing is a repository of images (like Unsplash) that can be used on websites and news but that is also social and libre (like Pixelfed). I think some kind of tweaked Pixelfed would do the job.
It is still a project that we think about and we have not filly abandoned...but too many things under the TROM umbrella. It is quite a challenge to maintain everything at this point. Maybe after the TROM II documentary is released we can look again into this. I'd love to see such a website.


If you want to check how reliable our websites are see https://status.tromsite.com - all of our websites are up and running all the time. Few exception when we update them or the server. But usually they are very reliable. #tromlive

If you want to test our latest TROMjaro in a browser go here https://distrotest.net/TROM-Jaro/2022.07.07 . It may be a bit slow but well...in case you want to test it. Mind you the website is trade-based. It wants your attention and possibly your data. With an ad/tracker blocker you should be fine. #tromlive

TROM II - we are starting to work on it again thanks to some recent donations! A huge thanks to Guil for donating 250 Euros and to Roma who donated 450 Euros. This, together with some money we were able to make ourselves, allow us to restart the work on the documentary.

I (Tio) made a blog post about all of it and I have added some samples from the documentary if you are curious to see them - here it is https://www.tiotrom.com/2022/07/trom-ii-rebooted-awesome-help/

I am excited! Let's do it folks! #tromlive

Changing politicians is like changing hats to become smarter. We don't need new politicians, we need a different way of organizing our society, to move away from a trade-based society, to a trade-free society. #tromlive

We have removed link.trom.tf because it was used for phishing. We almost got our server entirely removed because of that. The service was a link shortener. And these services ca be asily abused. We knew that, and we were ready to nuke it in case that happened. #tromlive

Rokosun reshared this.


TROM.tf updates:

- We've added https://tasks.trom.tf/ - a complete Trello trade-free alternative.
- We've added https://sketch.trom.tf/- a simple and useful online sketch whiteboard. Draw together with others and share your drawings.
- We've added another one https://scratch.trom.tf/ geared towards learning programming and creating animations.
- We moved yt.trom.tf to the original ytb.trom.tf. Do not worry, they are linked so it does not matter which one you use.

As you can see we are adding new trade-free services. Thanks to the people who donate to TROM. Now we have 27 trade-free services that are well maintained. So if you can, please donate to TROM here https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ to keep these services alive and relevant, and add more in the future.

We will make some "info" pages for some of these newly added services, soon. Enjoy! #tromlive

Our TROMjaro LInux Distro comes with a customized Firefox. We removed all Firefox annoyances and trackers, plus added addons to block all ads and trackers on any website, also the sponsors from youtube videos; we added LibreDirect so that it automatically redirects youtube, twitter, instagram and the like, to trade-free front ends. We added an addon to unlock scientific papers, and one to allow you to download any video/audio file from any website.

All in all, we setup TROMjaro's browser to protect you from the pesky world of the Internet and the insidious trades humans are exposed to.

Ok out TROMsite.com server was moved to a different location. Now all should work fine. #tromlive

Rokosun reshared this.


If some trom.tf services look a little broken (design wise) it is because our main TROMsite.com server is down for the past hours. Very likely an issue with the hosting provider. It depends on them whenever this server will be up and running. Probably a network issue in their data center. #tromlive

Our Peertube got updated. There are some cool new features:

1. Automated subtitles based on machine learning. Select the language of your video and an automated subtitle will be created. We do not know how good this feature is, but it is worth a shot.
2. Ability to edit any subtitle.
3. You can cut any of your videos now, using the Studio. There you can also add an intro, outro, and watermark. Basic video editing in the browser!
4. Ability to auto save the permanent livestreams - don't lose those again!
5. Live streams now get converted into multiple formats.
6. Share on the Fediverse:



Please join us! If you are making interesting videos about science/technology/activism in English, you have unlimited storage space with us. We already have over 1.000 registered users, but not many are uploading. #tromlive

Soon we will add a Theme Switch to TROMjaro :)

You will be able to click any color combination from the list and change your theme based on the color accent and dark/light mode. And unlike Pop OS, Deepin, Ubuntu, Gnome and the like, our Theme Switch changes the theme for some 90% of all apps out there, compared to some 10-20% for these other distros.

Stay tuned! #
does this also deal with gtk4 / libawaita bizarro-land on tromjaro?
Unfortunately no....we do not know how to fix that in an automated way...and I do not think anyone knows. But as soon as we do we can adapt the code. Libadwaita really messed things up
oh sounds promising! I will test it now!
Wow this fixes libadwaita theme issue! So awesome. Packaging it for TROMjaro :). All we need for now is a fix for the pesky flatpaks... Thank you so much for the heads-up!
I think what they basically do is patch libadwaita to bypass itself. So it satisfies the library dependency for the executable, but disables what the library would have done... I suspect KDE will adopt a similar strategy at some point. Maybe LD_PRELOAD can be used in a way to do this with flatpaks.

The problem I see is it may not be a very long-term sustainable solution, especially on a rolling distro. I suggest learning who the maintainer is and what their long-term plans are.
this may have some ideas too...

Thank you Guillaume for the 250 Euros donation! This is fantastic! It may add up a bit to speeding up the TROM II documentary work comeback. If we had enough money we would resume the work on the documentary. And we wok on achieving that. Thank you to everyone who still donates via Patreon or Liberapay.

We have increased the file size limit for https://send.trom.tf/ from 3GB to 5GB. Compare with the very popular WeTransfer and we offer 3 times more storage. Plus we can store all files up to a week. On top of this all files are encrypted, and you can send an email with the files from our server directly, to anyone. You can combine multiple files into one archive and even password protect them.

Oh, and of course, our TROM Send is trade-free. We do not want anything in return: not your currency, not your data, not your attention. WeTransfer wants all of those in return for a lesser service.

Make sure you bookmark https://send.trom.tf/ #

We have expanded the storage space for our trom.tf server by 400 more GB of SSD. This means that we now have some 800+ free GB of the server. That's great. Should be fine for this year at least. Thank you to everyone who still donates to TROM. #

People are saying that Time is Money in this world. The better and more realistic and important saying is that: Money is Time, and time is non-renewable. No sane society would look at time in this shallow manner as humans do on this planet.

Our monthly budged updated. We now have around 2.100 Euros in total. This is meant to keep all of the TROM projects alive and relevant. Some 30 websites or so. See https://www.tromsite.com/tools/ . It is of course not enough. TROM II documentary has stalled now, because of lack of funding. We, the ones behind TROM, are trying to work (trade) to make some money to support this project and continue the TROM II documentary. Unfortunately it is extremely difficult.

We still get some monthly donations or one time donations from time to time, which is fantastic! So if you think TROM creates something important, please consider a donation https://www.tromsite.com/donate/

We have many free books, videos, and so many tools: from social networks to operating systems and so on. #
