I've released version 2.0.0 of my RSS to ActivityPub converter! This now provides functionality I'd hacked in to rss.friend.camp - it requires OAuth 2.0 authorization for someone to create a new AP account for an RSS feed.

I used to run this service "in the open" but was overwhelmed by spammers. Now the admin of a Mastodon (or Pleroma or any federated server that is an OAuth 2 provider) can provide this converter as a service solely to members of their instance.

Its official websites are at:

You can follow Mobilizon accounts from Mastodon etc. because it uses the same ActivityPub federation standard as the rest of the Fediverse.

Another lost treasure of the internet is the sci.electronics.repair FAQ.

Just look at this goddamn thing. Thousands and thousands of words, chock-full of battle tested wisdom, enough to help anyone with some motivation solve their problems. Zero monetization, zero bullshit. What ever happened to that Internet? I sure do miss it.

I want to take the Facebook outage as an opportunity to advocate for decentralized instant messaging services & social media sites like XMPP,Matrix and the Fediverse, if one of those servers goes down it won't take down global communications. In theory I should also advocate for email because it operates exactly on that basis, but nowadays wayy too many people use gmail, so if google goes down, global email communications will probably come to a standstill as well.

ARPA IN 1974: we're inventing the internet because networked comptuers are decentralized and therefore there is no single point of failure

Pretty much pretty pages. #inkscape
