I wish Urban Arrow sold these bikes in the US. They look like incredibly handy utility bikes that could replace a lot of truck trips. https://puntarella.party/@acasalotti/112280261282504835

JohanEmpa,

@bikescape Have you seen the Ono bike. You can configure it with side panels, weather protection, shelves, a loading ramp etc.

Reminder to anyone who said "Meta wouldn't do anything to Fediverse, we should let them join!"

Meta is now automatically muting all posts that mention PixelFed, so it's users can't read about any alternatives to its services.

Just remember, Every time advocacy groups warn about tech/capitalism, believe them. We don't make shit up, we use history of actions and facts to state our reasons to be against it.

If your instance isn't part of @FediPact please urge your admins to join or move to another instance who is.

And if you want proof, ask the general public what Jabber/XMPP was, and then ask what Google how they killed it.

EDIT: Please send support to the creator of the FediPact, @vantablack as she is homeless. This is possible because of them.

EDIT #2: Some peppe are saying it doesn't happen anymore, but since it only happened to competitors to Facebook and only after people noticed, I don't think it was a "bug" that only impacted FOSS replacements, but a feature for Facebook removed. Don't give these Zuckers gaslight and think they remain innocent.

JohanEmpa,

@alberto_cottica In a "wait and see" mode

JohanEmpa,

@alberto_cottica yes, we are

JohanEmpa,

@alberto_cottica No, it's not up and running. That's the wait and see part.

I've noticed how infosec.exchange created a second server to solve the federation dilemma. Their original server has 15 k users and the other, infosec.space, has fewer than 100 users. We can observe how that develops over the next few months.

From my point of view there isn't any rush to create a second server. Meta isn't even fully federated yet. It's one way as far as I understand it.

JohanEmpa,

@alberto_cottica I wish I could send a poll to all active users and ask properly, but Mastodon doesn't have such a feature. So far there are more people following others on Threads than people voicing their opinion to block them.

What a time to be alive

New research that tipping within this century, even quite soon, is a definite possibility:

Sea levels would rise by a metre in some regions, inundating many coastal cities. The wet and dry seasons in the Amazon would flip, potentially pushing the already weakened rainforest past its own tipping point. The southern hemisphere would become warmer. Europe would cool dramatically and have less rainfall.

JohanEmpa,

@pvonhellermannn It's interesting to see that the collapse takes up to 100 years. We can do quite a lot before it fully stops.

JohanEmpa,

@pvonhellermannn I was wrong saying "up to". Should have written "can collapse in less than 100 years after the trigger point has passed".

What I tried to say was that we have up to 100 years of action, even in the worst case scenario.

We can remove almost all historic CO2 emissions in hundred years if we do it as fast as we burned the fossil fuels. Obviously not easy to do, but removing a substantial amount could delay trigger points

I have never considered the design of 's official and network map convincing. This was my motivation to create my own 🇩🇪 long-distance rail map a few years ago. It focuses more on systematic connections and their frequencies for better understanding rather than just showing every line.

The 2024 map is finally online 🥳

Boost appreciated.

JohanEmpa,

@larstransportworld Are you using some fancy transport planning software to draw those maps?

How does mastodon decide when to show a post this way?

JohanEmpa,

@ayo The official Mastodon software can display markdown formatting but doesn't support writing it. Manisha is on an instance running a fork called glitch-soc. They can write markdown.

BBC has written about wooden wind turbines from Modvion. The actual tower is 105 m. Made from about 200 trees.

I've published a new blog post on the topic of Threads.net and Mastodon.green. Do you have any thoughts on it?

JohanEmpa,

@denspier I'm thinking like you that it won't be any problem on our server. Overall it's interesting to see how it plays out in the fediverse, both technically and in other ways.

Not going well at GOP28 today

Some oil and gas countries can't see any scientific evidence that the world need to phase-out fossil fuels. :blobcatfacepalm:

JohanEmpa, to random

It's going well on COP28 🙂
"More than 100 countries have now signaled support for a fossil fuel phase-out."

They track methane emissions by satellite and tell the oil companies where it leaks.

USA want to cut methane emissions with 80 %. Nothing can stop that, except the election next year.

You know the 0-60 mph acceleration test - why is it 60 mph? Is there some logic behind it, or historical reason?

Should I open up an advice centre and lobby group for and software at my university, just for fun? (I am not qualified)

JohanEmpa,

@realsimon Yes, but make it a Fediverse+Linux group instead. The group naturally learns Linux and open source while doing something meaningful.

Serious question: does anyone here know how to create a new emoji and have it added for everyone? The emoji i need again and again but which doesn’t exist is a broken green heart

JohanEmpa,

@pvonhellermannn Maybe? Is this heart visible to you? :broken_heart_green:

Industry lobbyists should be run out of town. And the EU should protect people instead of ensuring corporations still make enough profit to be happy

Earlier this year the chemical industry showed the car industry that lobbying the EU is effective. They basically got an allowance to poison us all

JohanEmpa,

@ronanmcd That's just British anti EU propaganda, isn't it?

There was a diesel scandal a few years ago. The industry reached the level where they can't lower emissions any more. A stricter law no one can comply with doesn't make sense.

What makes sense is to ban fossil cars, and the EU did that.

JohanEmpa,

@ronanmcd I agree
