Pinned post


Hello people! I'm new here & having a look around. At the moment I'm looking for interesting people to follow, so I can get a sense of the place. I'm a musician (heringman.com/); other chief interests are books (fave authors Le Guin, George Eliot, Dickens...), environmentalism, photography, nature/walking, utopian thinking. My work formerly took me all over the globe, but since 2011 I've chosen to play only in places I can get to by train. Home is lovely North Yorkshire.

Social media is a lot more enjoyable when you don't concern yourself with follower numbers and stuff. Just post things and interact with others and you'll slowly build your circle of friends. :vlpn_happy:

@ruari Later, he wrote: It may be because of this: docs.joinmastodon.org/admin/co

We have that.

"Unfortunately, secure mode is not without its drawbacks, which is why it is not enabled by default. Not all software in the fediverse can support it fully, in particular some functionality will be broken with Mastodon servers older than 3.0"

[Over my head, but for now I'll simply accept that connecting from mastodon.green with someone (myself) on pixelfed.social simply doesn't work at the moment.]

This issue is the same as one of your screenshots: github.com/pixelfed/support/is - - the fix is something only the pixelfed admin can do.

This one is about follow requests not working properly:

Planting is caring 🌳

Today we open our MapMyTree web app to all EU citizens to register their planted trees. Help us reach the goal of 3 billion additional trees in the EU by 2030.

This can make a difference not only for Europe, but for the world.

apparently my elderly neighbor has been maintaining a personal website about the history of UK photography and it is an incredible piece of work.

apparently he still uses some piece of adobe software from the 90s. there is so much care and effort here, and its such a pristine image of the early web being still updated 😭

I was thinking recently, if flights have a similar train or bus ride that takes the same flight time + 4-6 hours (time spent on average commute to and from airports and airport procedures)... The flights should be illegal, or at least double as expensive as the corresponding train/bus fare.

But, gods forbid we regulate the market! 🙄

@jacobheringman Well done! A couple of years ago I convinced my director to travel with me to Amsterdam by train – adding two full days of travel to her very busy schedule. She told me later that, with a bit of planning, she could probably have worked just as efficiently while traveling, so in reality no (work)time was lost. Trains are excellent for focused work. But it was much more expensive, which is insane considering the crisis we are in.
