Personal growth is hard when you leave no room (time) for it.

Upped memory_limit a bit. 🤷

Because it's all gobbledygook and jumbled characters.

Irrespective of #PHP, I still prefer the #Friendica interface over the #Mastodon one. #Fediverse

I still think the UI of #Friendica is more my style than that of #Mastodon, #Pleroma, #MissKey, or any of their forks. #Fediverse

(Posting from Friendica here.)

I honestly don't remember. When the Diaspora instances I was on went down, I went with Friendica because it can communicate with all sorts of servers including Diaspora.

in reply to Neil E. Hodges

these days that's the best outcome for software updates



I'm honestly enjoying the #Friendica UX a whole lot more than the "birdsite" knockoff UX of a lot of other #Fediverse implementations. (Screenshotted post)

At least #GNUSocial provides something like this as well. #Mastodon #Pleroma #MissKey

#Mastodon users should take a look at #Diaspora and #Friendica. They provide #Fediverse organization more akin to Facebook than Twitter.

Friendica is also compatible with ActivityPub implementations like Mastodon. I'm actually using Friendica here, for example.
in reply to Neil E. Hodges

Fun fact: #Friendica has actually been around on the #Fediverse longer than #Mastodon by several years. It was originally called "Mistpark" when it was first released back in 2010.

I'll have to spin this up and see how easy it is. Looks relatively easy (docker and ansible). Thanks for the share.

in reply to Neil E. Hodges

@Neil E. Hodges No recommendations as I haven't used them, and probably you know about them already, but just to make sure:

In addition to WriteFreely there's also #Plume, WordPress with the ActivityPub plugin and WordPress with the #Pterotype plugin.

Maybe someone else can comment on how useful and usable each of these are.


I wish we had a #Fediverse server or frontend that displayed things like old-school Web forums/BBSes. That's much more comfy to me than these Twitter-style and Facebook-style timelines. #Mastodon #Pleroma #MissKey #Friendica #Diaspora
in reply to Neil E. Hodges

100% agreed. Scrolling through a timeline that can only fit 3-4 posts on a page is nowhere near as efficient as looking at list of a couple dozen subjects.

Unfortunately, it requires posts to have a subject line, which requires a schema change, or it requires people to write their first sentence line a subject line, which requires a people change.


I kind of like the way posts are organized on #Friendica and #Diaspora more than how they're organized on #Mastodon, #Pleroma, #Misskey, and so on. #Fediverse





I feel like my eyes are happier with greyscale than with colors. When I set up my # instance with the default theme of muted colors, my eyes hurt. When I changed most of them to light and dark greys, my eyes felt more comfortable.
