Couple of things I forgot:

- Allows you to select between glibc and musl c standard lib implementations
- I haven't tried, but it's supposed to work on ARM and other embedded devices

Hey Linux users, give some love to @VoidLinux . An amazing distribution built from scratch.

- Unique xbps package manager.
- LibreSSL instead of OpenSSL.
- Runit instead of Systemd.
- Rolling Release, but unlike Arch, each new package or update requires a successful compilation via Travis on GitHub.


And feel free to ask anything if you are curious ❤️

Hi all we did NOT migrate the servers yesterday but instead just begun that now. It shouldn't effect anything until I redirect the DNS in a few hours. At that point there may be momentary downtime. I will keep everyone informed ont he schedule.

Cyberpunk 2077 is looking really good as a single player and I want them to focus on that, but how cool would be a roleplay-focused multiplayer in a future expansion 😍

Does anybody have any idea about how many users this social media platform has? I'm enlisted with QOTO.org but I keep seeing folks with other domain names on this too. Still trying to figure this platform out.

Is anyone of you still using the and if so how do you access it? Provider? Google groups?

Have ya'll seen the Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay? 😍😍😍

Just adding a small note, I love <3

I haven't done my so far so let's fix that.

You can call me Criw, I'm a second year software engineering student. I'm way more interested in low-level programming such as writing drivers than in webapps & similar stuff. I'm just starting to learn about that tho. And I like to contribute to opensource projects to learn and practice, in case you want contributors for something <3

Besides programming, I like to spend my time finding new music, and I'm recently learning to cook, so if you have any easy recipe you wanna share do it ;)

And IDK what else to tell ya'll, so if you have any question go on <3

I seem to live in a small city under a rock, but the past month I went in vacations and found a really cool concept I hadn't thought about: it was a cafebrary, which is a mix between a cafe and a library, where you could drink something while reading or buying books, really cool 😍😍😍. I wonder what interesting concepts are out there and I haven't found yet

I need to know that ugly secret everybody else seems to know; how do you drink coffee without sugar?

The birth of #Linux :tux:
27 years ago.

On August 25 1991 Linus Torvalds wrote to comp.os.minix:

"I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and
professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones."

"won't be big" he said. 😃

Happy birthday, Linux, and congratulations to Mr. Torvalds.

Message to New Members

Welcome to the Qoto Mastodon instance, its like twitter but better!

Please don't hesitate to Direct Message me or tag me in Toots (what we call tweets here) if you have any questions or even if you just want to chat.

If you are new to Mastodon you may want to check out this official getting started guide: https://github.com/tootsuite/documentation/blob/master/Using-Mastodon/User-guide.md

We are a free speech, no censorship zone. Feel free to talk about whatever you want, say whatever you want, as long as it is legal you wont ever get banned from the server. With that said we do have a few rules: No spam, and no using multiple accounts to circumvent personal bans.

This server isnt a typical mastodon server either. I have personally modified the code on this server to give it several unique features you wont find on other servers.

If you are new to Mastodon here is some useful info.

First off, if your coming from Twitter and you'd prefer an interface that looks exactly like twitter, then just go here and login with your Qoto credential: https://halcyon.qoto.org/ No need to create an account there, your account on this server will work just fine. Just enter your username in the following format @[username]@qoto.org so for me it would be @freemo But personally I think our default skin here is way better.

Basically Mastodon is a decentralized twitter. That means anyone can run a server (like Qoto) that people can sign up to and use just like twitter. The unique part is how the servers talk to each other.

If you want to tag someone on the same server as you then you can just do @user however if you want to specify someone on a different server you can do @user@server. If someone follows you or mentions you on any server on the internet you'll get notified right here. So my full tag is @freemo@qoto.org.

So now a bit about the timelines, there are three (unlike twitter there is just one): Home, Local, Federated.

The Home timeline is just like what you'd expect on twitter, that is, everyone you are following.

The local timeline is any post made by anyone on your local server.

The federated timeline is what is cool. It combines the timeline of everyone on the server into one. This way you can see the posts of everyone that is followed by anyone on the server (assuming the post is public). So this timeline is a close representation of everyone on the internet who has Mastadon (though not really). Moreover we have a bot here that goes around and federates with everyone it can find, so our Federated Feed is rather robust covering thousands of instances.

Only other thing that is unique is listed vs unlisted posts. You have normal privacy settings like on twitter but you also can set a post to be listed or unlisted. If it is listed it acts just as i described. If it is unlisted then it acts just as a normal tweet would but it doesnt show up on local or federated timelines anywhere.

Also this goes without saying, but don't be racist, sexist, hateful, and don't harass people. Its a pretty shitty thing to do, don't be shitty!

The following is the list of QOTO administrators/moderators.
  • @freemo@qoto.org
  • @absolutus@qoto.org
  • @arteteco@qoto.org
  • @Surasanji@qoto.org
  • @hashtaggrammar@qoto.org
Note: The account @QOTO@qoto.org listed as the administrator is NOT an actively monitored account. It was selected so as not to show favoritism among our moderator group, we are a democracy and even our administrators and moderators are held to the same high standards of decency as the rest of the community.
