Is there anyone in the Fedi who can help me with this issue in @gitea? It's very important to my job, and I'm stuck!


Hey Fediverse!

The @owncast project could really use some help! 🙏

At the moment the lead dev @gabek is having to handle an awful lot at once. The platform would be much more sustainable if there were more people on the team.

Everyone who wants to help is welcome, but of course there are some specific areas where help is especially welcome:


Please get in touch with @owncast or @gabek if you want to help out!

For those who don't know, OwnCast is a Twitch-style livestreaming and chat service for the Fediverse. You can follow OwnCast accounts from Mastodon etc and you will see a post in your timeline when the account goes live. There's a site about it at owncast.online and a directory of featured streams at directory.owncast.online

Boosts welcome!

i should've probably used some third-party nameservers to avoid downtimes like that...

have anybody heard anything about upspin? (https://upspin.io). maybe somebody had some experience with it? if so, let me know.

just by skimming the docs, it seems like a fine thing to me. only thing that i don't like is that there's only one central keyserver. but other than that it seems to me like a good thing to share stuff.

this is weird. tried to update as always but reposync failed because it couldn't resolve rsync.gentoo.org. i thought that it was my fault since i have my own dns resolver, so i switched my dns server to this worked, but now even google's dns fails to resolve gentoo rsync repository.

have anyone had similar issues?

btw, fellow gentoomen, have anybody built firefox/chromium from source? is it worth it?

i'm currently running firefox-bin and it's okay, but it's eating quite a lot of ram and cpu. maybe compiled version will be lighter?

gonna perform some dangerous things with my server.

just in case i'll lose all my data (I HOPE NOT), my primary fedi account will be this one.


Neither PayPal nor Payoneer work with Russia any longer, neither for payments nor withdrawal, I can not pay for my servers any longer myself, and also I can not use Patreon to collect donations.

Right now, there's a giant wall separating me from my foreign payments, including my server infrastructure, and my job.


If you want to help keep the lights on in Russian Fediverse community a bit longer, please send any amount of money to the following banking credentials:

If you wish to support me PERSONALLY (help me pay utilities, buy food, clothes, etc.), Boosty is still a thing, if you are used to Patreon, you'll feel at home there:


Stay tuned for further info.

after all this time tried to ditch lightdm. installed lxdm instead. but for some weird reason (100% my fault, i suppose) it was behaving weirdly, getting all my apps wrong and displaying my private notifications right on the login screen...

so i psyched out and decided to ditch the whole idea of a display manager. just plain fucking .xinitrc with `exec dwm` in it and nothing else.

i guess there are not many steps left to ditch modern computing whatsoever.

does anybody use moc (music-on-console) on archlinux? mine suddenly stopped working.

each time i tried to launch it, it would crap out some nonsence about buffer overflow and die. tried reinstalling it completely, same behaviour. so i had to compile it from source and now it runs fine 🤷

@nerdtronics tried compiling openbsd from source today — it's like a breeze, yay! tomorow i will try to compile -current

@10leej yay, i updated my gentoo install (told about it on the stream), seems that everything's fine
