The EU has joined the #fediverse by hosting Mastodon and PeerTube instances for EU institutions, offices, and agencies.
ActivityPub is a W3C standard that can redistribute power on the Web back to communities. Great to see public institutions leading.
You can now read and engage with news and information about 🇪🇺 EU policies, in a privacy-focused environment and with no transfer of data outside the EU.
This initiative is part of an EU pilot for supporting and using social media platforms based on open-source software.

Mastodon has Direct Messages (DMs), there are two ways to make them happen:
-Create a normal message, set its privacy to "Direct" and then @ mention whomever you want to receive the message. If you mention more than one person it becomes a group chat. This works on all apps and versions of Mastodon.
-If you're logged in through the website, or if you're using a third party app, you can click on the "..." menu on a post or a person's profile and select Direct Message. This then automatically creates a direct message just like the one in the previous method. You can also look at your previous DMs by clicking on the envelope or the "Direct Message" link in the menu.
The official apps don't currently have any specific DM features, but you can use the first method in them and it works fine.
The end result of both methods is exactly the same.
My #xiaomi mi9 was in a bootloop and it looks like the power button was stuck, and also looks like this is a common problem. Ouch?
Somebody made this beauty:
@ebel as standalone program prometheus is fine (though I'm using #victoriametrics which I whole❤️edly recommend) but actually replacing the whole functionality of nagios+munin will be, erm, adventurous. Using munin is pain-free and automagic, not quite true for prometheus....
Nagios is ugly but the dependency logic works for me very well. I still ought to reconfigure alertmanager, someday.

@algernon I have two kinds of pg upgrade: for small db I just let `pg_upgradecluster` to do it and so far no trouble. For big ones I use `pg_upgrade ... --link ...` and have backups ready [no trouble so far 9->13]. 😛
@algernon As it is written in th Holy Book:
"If it has to be broken then it have been had to be broken." and "Thou shalt break first to have something to fix." ;-)
On the other hand I keepwondering how mastodon/AP will handle daily 260 million users from #twitter? ;-)
...microsized twitter messages please? ;-)
The Admin Face. Regrettably Hungarian.
Running Mastodon, Diaspora, Matrix (and possibly more); doing Wikipedia and OSM (and possibly more), creating Linux stuff, (and possibly else).
